HARD CASE Release!


Well, here it is. HARD CASE has finally made it into the reader’s domain. Produced by my partner, RJ Parker Publishing, with cover illustration from contributor, William Cook, HARD CASE was released to Amazon today. It’s a great story with all the ingredients I enjoy mixing together: humor, violence, romance, and a crew of characters you don’t ever want mad at you. John Harding is perhaps my favorite character so far. He’s a blend of loyalty, cynicism, violent skills, and romantic touch I’m hoping readers will find irresistible.


Here's the book trailer on You Tube for HARD CASE

Hit #3 in Amazon's Men's Adventure during our promo!
Hit #5 in Amazon in the United States!  

An E-mailer with an automotive problem bought a book and gave me a great blog review on my car advice. Thank you, Kimberly. I appreciate your kind words.  :)

Thanks, Charles. I think you'll like it. I pray your wife's remission will become reality soon, my friend.

Thank you, Tanya. I have to try something new. The old mainstream publishing world is just getting too hard to crack. :)

It has been exciting, Raine, much more so than when COLD BLOODED was released by Wild Child Publishing. They dumped it on the market after locking it up for three years, and gave me a list of things I ought to do to sell it. I have a marketing partner who actually believes in HARD CASE, and acts like he has a stake in its success, because he does. I can't understand why a publishing house with a monetary interest in selling an author's book releases it and says good luck. I'll keep everyone posted on how HARD CASE does. It shot up briefly to #11 on Amazon's Men's Adventure list last night. At least now there's a thrill in doing this. :)

I agree brother, Cold Blooded and Monster should be selling. All your books are amazing. Sotella and CB are both my favorite books of all times and I've read approximately 10,000 books in my life. You write what I love to read, but with a dash of humor that makes it fun to read. Chin up, better times ahead.

We're going to make this work, brother, and the good part is... there's no downside at all. :)

Bernard: a couple of things... First, thank you for your mechanical advise on my f150.. you nailed it. Second, I just finished "Cold Blooded", real good read, been quite a while since I've both started and finished a book! Picked up "Monster" after finishing "Cold Blooded" and getting started this weekend. Nice work and again thanks!

Thanks, Kev, that's real good news. I'm glad you were able to fix it, and I appreciate your comments on the writing. If you can spare a moment, it would be very helpful if you could write a review on Amazon for me. In any case, thank you, and nice hearing from you. Thanks for the update on the truck.
