About 6 months ago I had a caller, Katherine LaHart, on my blogtalk radio show The G-ZONE call in and suggest that I do a collaboration. Personally I was floored; really, this was the last thing that I thought anybody would ask me that day. I sure didn’t wake up with that thought on my mind. Since then we, various authors and Trestle Press, have produced 22 installments of the series covering just about every genre possible except romance. Let’s face it, with names like Harry Balls, Peter Bater, Black Bart, and well me, romance does not come to mind.
One choice that was made right from the beginning was that we were going to try to use the same characters throughout the stories, keeping a constant thread, so that there is a consistency to them, a feel that you could have a familiarity with the material no matter what installment you pick up in the series. We wanted to make sure that jumping around is not an issue and would not hinder your reading experience. One other key element we wanted to have was to make sure that the story would have a flow, a balance, so it did not appear as if one author was trying to upstage another.
All the authors that have contributed thus far have had one last key thought in mind, you the reader. Are we delivering a really good readable story? We think that the results have spoken for themselves. The majority of the stories have sold very well, having charted on Amazon Kindle’s Top 100 in their category time and time again; for that we thank you!
Now for the good part: for the rest of this month we will be offering two things:
*** One is that we will be offering 6 of the titles for free, one for each month we have been doing this, yours to enjoy, no questions asked!!
You can ask any Trestle Press author for them and, BOOM. They are yours, no muss, and no fuss, please enjoy them!
