WRITER'S BLOCK, Issue #11-How David R Lewis became a writer, update on Glory Trail
June 01, 2016
A Brief History:
Why I write
I wrote my first book in 1981-1982. It was fostered in my tiny mind by a series of recurrent dreams, and I wrote the thing for a number of reasons. One of them being the fact that I needed to get it out of my head. It was called Incidents Among the Savages. I didn't write another book until 2002. That effort was in the early days of the great vampire incursion into popular pulp fiction. I wrote the book on a dare because I didn't like books about vampires and thought I might be able to write one that seemed reasonably plausible. The same individual who dared me to write the "Vamp" book knew I didn't care for romance novels and came up with another dare for me, this time in the genre of bodice rippers. That’s how Once Upon Again came to be.
(An homage to Calvin and Hobbs creator, Bill Watterson.)
Plans are in the works for releasing the next book in the CROCKETT series, Behind the Badge: Small Town Troublemakers in early 2017!
Crockett takes a part time job as a small-town cop and becomes suspicious of a local nightclub. With the help of the Missouri State Police, a cute undercover operative, and the ever-present Stitch, Crockett begins an investigation that leads to murder, mayhem, and more when he goes BEHIND THE BADGE.
Work has slowed down a bit on Glory Trail. The Marshals are kindly tired and need a little break. But, they'll be back in the saddle soon. Don't worry, David still has their back trail...and that of his fans, too!
We now have 46 videos put up. More should be in place soon. Please check it out; and if you would, follow us on YouTube. We'd really appreciate that!
We named the channel David R Lewis. So, you can just type in David's name, and the YouTube search engine will pull it up, or you can click on the link below.
What you will find is a channel that has four playlists at the moment: the Trail series, the Crockett series, Heartland Memories, and Thoughts on Writing. David performs some excerpts from his books, shares some memories of his youth, and rants a little about the writing process.
The Crockett Series
The CROCKETT series:
Remember: eBook #1 of the CROCKETT series, FEAR OF THE FATHER, is still free everywhere. Here's the links:
As we mentioned last time, David has written a total of 8 Crockett books. At present, 5 are out. Just a heads up...come April 29, 2016, we are planning on releasing the 6th one, UnderCover.
Take to the TRAIL
DEER RUN TRAIL is free on Amazon and our other distribution sites in ebook format. And, as mentioned before, CUTTHROAT TRAIL will be released on March 15, 2016. That makes 7 books in the TRAIL series.
Passing that information on to all your friends would sure be appreciated. We'll even include a few of the links.
