WRITER'S BLOCK, Vol. 3, Issue #1 The start of another Trail, Crockett #7 coming in January
January 01, 2017
How I Got This Way...
Even though Christmas is now behind us, I’d like to take you back sixty years or more to my little Baptist Church on Christmas Eve.
The next summer she gave me a boomerang left to her by her deceased husband, Old Man Hale, from his time spent in Australia. This was not a toy, but a real aboriginal boomerang, a weapon of magnitude that would not only return when thrown, but would take your head off if you didn’t duck.
Happy New Year from all of us at Ironbear Ebooks.
the TRAIL series
GLORY TRAIL is now available as an eBook on Amazon and Smashwords. It should be up soon on all other major distributors.
The release date was December 25th.
A wagon train of hopefuls have a chance for a new beginning and a better life by leaving the war-torn South and relocating in Kansas. Unfortunately, old habits die hard; and the truth can come to mean very little. Join Ruben, Marion, and Homer as they fight for justice on the GLORY TRAIL.
Update on the eAudio version
The eAudio version of the book has to be delayed. We have run into some problems beyond our control. It may take awhile, but we are still planning on recording. Please, don't give up on us...'cuz we sure aren't giving up on getting this done! Thank you for your kindness, understanding, and appreciation of David's work.
the TRAIL series: Another Update
(Shhh, don't tell David I am writing this. I don't think he realizes yet that I'm not good at keeping secrets.)
There isn't a cover yet...and, there's no title...
but...the guys have hit the trail again!
I'm not bragging or anything; however, David has read the first 5,000 words or so of the next book to me!
It won't be out for awhile, so you have to be patient. The TRAIL books usually run between 60,000 to 70,000 words. This book, at 5,000 words, has "several" more words to go before it get done.
However, let me tell you...it's going to be another great one. It already has some unexpected twist and turns! I can't wait to get the next chapter. (You'd think I would be use to the waiting and wondering and nail chewing after all these years. Nope...no matter how many books David writes and reads to me over the phone, chapter by chapter, I still stay in knots until the book is done. Personally, I think David does that to me on purpose...)
Finally--DEER RUN TRAIL, the paperback, has been formatted to our satisfaction, and we are happy with the proof, and it is available on Amazon in paperback format.
Just recently. Nodaway Trail became available on Amazon as a paperback, too! We are planning on getting Calico Trail ready for paperback as soon as the final work is done on Behind the Badge,Crockett #7.
the CROCKETT series
Plans are coming along nicely for releasing the 7th book in the CROCKETT series, Behind the Badge: Small Town Troublemakers!
Pre-Order of the eBook on Amazon will begin January 6, 2016.
The actually release date is January 27, 2016!
Behind the BadgeCrockett 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.
To get you in the right mood for Crockett and the gang, here's a link to the latest YouTube video...it just happens to be from SITUATIONAL FLEXIBILITY, the 3rd book in the CROCKETT series. Ole Clete is giving Crockett a little lecture on relationships versus committments.
AND MORE NEWS: The 8th and final book in the CROCKETT series is SIX CUT KILL. David has finished the script, but the book is not ready for release yet. Though plans are a bit on the "iffy" side right now, it could be out by late 2017--though it MIGHT be a little sooner.
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 any of the links below.
David performs some excerpts from his books, shares some memories of his youth, and rants a little about the writing process.
