WRITER'S BLOCK, Vol. 3, Issue #4 Writing Updates
April 01, 2017
How I Got This Way...
In 1968 I was a cop. A very up-tight cop. For over two weeks, because of rioting, fire bombings and other stuff of that nature, a group of us, heartily trained and heavily armed, had been working twelve hours on, twelve hours off, every day. Three to a car, we rode, occasionally taking fire from the rebels in the hills as we tried to provide cover for ambulances, fire trucks, civilians, and each other. Stressed and frosty, we played cowboys and Indians on a grand scale, and we were all wound tighter than a three dollar pocket watch.
(An homage to Calvin and Hobbs creator, Bill Watterson.)
the TRAIL series
GLORY TRAIL is available as an eBook on Amazon, Smashwords, and other major distributors.
The release date was December 25th.
Glory Trail Audio UpdateA lot of people have been asking when the audio version of Glory Trail will be released. David has been dealing with some medical issues that have slowed down the production of the audio. Don't worry, though. Things are improving, and we are hoping to go in production soon.
Glory Trail BlurbA 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.
the TRAIL series: A New Update
There still isn't a cover yet...and, there's no title...
but...the guys are on the trail again!
Yes, David has been working on the next book!
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. Though the book is now around 10,000 words, it still has "several" more words to go before it's done.
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.
Nodaway Trail is available on Amazon as a paperback, too! We are planning on getting Calico Trail ready for paperback and out real soon. Keep watch for it!
the CROCKETT series
the 7th book in the CROCKETT series, Behind the Badge: Small Town Troublemakers is now available on Amazon and other major distributors!
It should be showing up shortly on all other major distributors, too. So, if you haven't seen it at your favorite distributor yet, keep watch. We promise, it'll get there.
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.
AND, HERE'S A DIRECT LINK!
