HARD CASE on Audio! HARD CASE IV for pre-release!

We writers today must also be marketers. We could pretend our work is an art form above the call and duty of marketing. Yeah... let me know how that works out for you. :)  Authors write. Authors market. Unless your name is Stephen King or Nora Roberts, that's just the way it is. I wish it were different. Thanks to RJ Parker Publishing obtaining full publishing credentials with Amazon, my fourth book in the HARD CASE series is now up for pre-release sales, titled Hard Case Book IV: A Violent Life.


Also, the first book in the series is now available on audio. RJ Parker and I have come a long way together, and he is indeed a marketeer and publisher as well as being a best selling author of true crime novels. His latest offering, Serial Killers True Crime Anthology 2014 is a truly horrific look at the genre's subject. Here is the link to HARD CASE in audio form, over ten hours of nonstop action, adventure, violence, and humor.

HARD CASE on Audio

We have award winning narrator Kevin Pierce doing the entire Hard Case series, and he is very entertaining as the voice of my Hard Case offerings.

New Year News

I have a couple of real fine writing and marketing items to share. First is the January edition of BTS Book Reviews Magazine, my favorite monthly journal of new books in multiple genres, with writing and publishing news and tips. My ads, as always are in there. They do a sensational job on them.

Next up, Amazon decided to promote my HARD CASE series with a 99 cent sale of the first book in the series. They did a very nice job of their usurpation of our publishing product. Here’s the link, and a wonderful presentation by my publishing partner, Author RJ Parker on his blog. 

RJ Parker has commissioned the HARD CASE and RICK CANTELLI series to audio books to be released this spring. The voice artists are very entertaining. More on that soon.

Last but not least, I’ll be hitting the 60k word plateau by Sunday in my fourth HARD CASE installment. It’s bloody, violent, and as usual, contains a touch of humor. Lynn Montoya, also known by John Harding’s crew as Cruella Deville, decides to add a horrific interrogation tool to her already frightening bag of information extraction methods – straight from ancient and medieval times. She’s on the case, and adding planning to her many duties. John allows her a lot of leeway as they battle to stop a deadly plague.
