A 5-Star Review for Collateral Damage

Shoshana Hathaway posted this 5-star review for Collateral Damage on Amazon:

“Austin S. Camacho delivers, once again, in this fast paced impeccably written, Hannibal Jones thriller. This time, we see the more than capable Mr. Jones beset, bothered, bewildered, and even disconcerted. What starts out as a back yard barbecue in his neighborhood turns into one very large domestic abuse issue, and one seemingly simple missing persons case which turns into murder ...and then becomes…

NO EASY CONSCIENCE

I'm having a problem with “No Easy Day,” the novel written by a member of SEAL Team 6. No, I haven't read it and I don't intend to. I already know how the story ends.

What eats into me is that the book was written in the first place. As a Navy veteran, I am dismayed that a member of that elite squad would break the code the SEAL Team holds dear. Operations are covert. Like Fight Club, the first rule is you don't talk about Fight Club.

As an American, I am…

Another 5-Star Review for Blood and Bone

Betsy Riley posted this 5 star review of Blood and Bone on Amazon: “More twists than a Chubby Checker concert! I didn't know the ride I was in for when I picked up Blood and Bone. This book makes me want to read the rest of the series as soon as I can get my hands on them. And I can't believe Hannibal Jones is not already a movie character or TV series. This is a hero everyone can root for, but not a superhero--he has realistic flaws, which just add to the enjoyment. I'm still dizzy from the…

Local Kid Makes Great

About a year ago, Michael Torres, one of my favorite students, came to my office and told me that he wasn’t going to be transferring for at least a year. It was a kick in the teeth. He’d been accepted to UCR’s creative writing program, which is a tremendously good program, and as a community college professor, my great joy is to see students transfer to places like that.

 

The problem was that he hadn’t finished the last math class he’d need to transfer. It’s a common problem…

Another Five Star review for The Troubleshooter.

Lance Knight posted this 5-star review on Amazon: “The Troubleshooter by Austin S. Camacho was a real page turner for me. The author obviously researched and planned the overall story, resulting in a great deal of detail concerning each of his main characters...each so distinctly individual. Hannibal was believable and fascinating albeit somewhat bulletproof. I came to be captured by his tough guy description as he met every obstacle head-on without regard to his own safety. So he was the…

It's a Business

I think what many authors tend to either forget or not realize in the first place is that publishing is a business. With any business, there are rules, regulations, and requirements for those who want to be employed. Writers sometimes don’t do their homework. I admit, I didn’t, but in time I learned the rules, and am still learning.

When applying for a job, there are…
