A while back, I started an off-the-cuff project called the Crime Writer's Guide to Firearms & Knives. It started as a way to debunk some of the myths about weapons in crime fiction. It soon morphed into a beast of its own, including a glossary and a bit of weapons…Continue

One of the reasons I'm not running into writer's block while writing novel number 2 is the subject matter. It's a crime thriller set in the oil boom of North Dakota. There's plenty of first-hand research to draw from, as well as scores of news articles.

I'm not a fan of the crop of paranormal fiction from the past few years. Glistening vampires fighting ripped werewolves over some ancient what-not has zero appeal. Not that it's suppose to grab me.

Here's how I sold 12,000 crime fiction e-books: I didn't.
At least, not in the way you think of a transaction. I "sold" them, not sold them, through Amazon's KDP Select program.
Readers of e-books will feel their eyes glaze over after that last sentence. But know this. The piles upon bloated piles of free e-books you've…Continue

Kidnapping isn't as easy as throwing someone into a pedo-van and driving off. What if they have to use the bathroom? Will it cramp your style as you and your kidnapping brethren try to enjoy a road trip?
These questions and more are…Continue
