WRITER'S BLOCK, Vol. 3, Issue #5 New Book Release, Glory Trail Audio Update, and more!
May 01, 2017
Happy May Day!
How I Got This Way...
There’s an old saw for writers that says, “Write what you know.” That’s good advice. My series of Crockett books as well as my novel, Cowboys and Indians, are all supported by my years as a metropolitan cop. My westerns come from a time when I was lucky enough to listen to stories told by men born in the late 1800’s and by the years I spent working from horseback. Most of my writing has sprung from life experience, in one form or another, and has been written to entertain you, the reader.
While appearing at a book signing, pulp fiction author Jess Quinn was approached by a disturbed woman looking for his help. The next morning, her body was found outside his hotel. Thus, Quinn found himself embroiled in an investigation into a high-level prostitution ring with a street wise police bodyguard named Shaneel Baker. Until the next murder, Quinn thought it was a great chance for research and a new plot. After that, he knew the old saw was true: You can't judge a book by its cover.
Writer's Block Release!Ironbear hasn't released anything for awhile; and to be truthful, David has been getting a little feisty about it! (That's never a good thing!) Falling into self-preservation mode, we quickly dusted off David's all time favorite novel and started sprucing it up. (I know he told you it contained his favorite characters, but he didn't tell the whole truth. He really does love this novel the best. I mean, that is all we have heard about since he wrote it. It's been a long four years!)
So, we are proud to announce that on...

Writer's Block is available for Pre-Order!
That's right. On May 5th, Writer's Block, the eBook, will be available for pre-order on Amazon. The actual release on Amazon will be May 19th. Other major distributors will have the book available about a week later. Get ready!
Other Release Updates!
the TRAIL series
Glory Trail Audio Production!It's been a long time coming, but it's finally happening. David has scheduled studio time for Glory Trail. Production is starting the second week in May. Now, there's a lot of things that go into getting the book ready and up for release. However, Ironbear figures the eAudio book should be available about mid-July. We'll keep you posted.
the TRAIL series: the 9th book Update
Still don't have a cover yet...and no title...
but...David and the guys are further along on the trail!
Together, they have moved from around 10,000 words up to a little over 15,000. Progress might slow down a little since time will be divided between the new adventure and the recording of Glory Trail. But, even with that, we are hoping it will be out around the first of the year.
Calico TrailWe had a few bumps with getting Calico Trail ready for paperback. But, they seem to be smoothing out, now. We are hopefully going to be able to release it in mid-June.
the CROCKETT series Update
The 8th, and final book, in the CROCKETT series, Six Cut Kill will be available on Amazon and other major distributors by the end of this year!
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.

Remember: eBook #1 of the CROCKETT series, FEAR OF THE FATHER, is still free everywhere. Here's the links:
