For the past several months, I’ve been very quiet on my blog, mainly because–in addition to teaching full-time and the rest of life–I’ve been working to republish the first three Harry James Denton novels under the Spearhead Press imprint.
I’m thrilled to say that the first three novels, Dead Folks’ Blues, Torch Town Boogie and Way Past Dead are nearly ready to go! The covers have been redesigned by the wonderful BookGraphics.net. Here are the first two:
And the cover for Way Past Dead will be ready in January.
I’d love to hear what you think. Shoot me a line.
Meantime, more to follow!

Why Politics Sucks: With Just A Few Modest Proposals That Might Make It All Suck A Little Less
…my first venture into nonfiction in a long time, is up for pre-order with a publication date–appropriately enough–of July 4, 2016.
Why Politics Sucks: With Just A Few Modest Proposals That Might Make It All Suck A Little Less is the first in a series of eight “broadsides” that will take a good, long, hard look at what’s gone wrong in our society. From Health Care to Wealth Inequality to the role of Religion, the failure of Higher Education, our broken Legal System and out-of-control Corporate Behavior, it seems like every major facet of American society is stumbling, if not downright falling. So over the next few months, we’re going to take each one of these topics and shed a little analysis, make a few “modest proposals” and generally engage in an insightful, thorough, smart-assed rant.
Why Politics Sucks: With Just A Few Modest Proposals That Might Make It All Suck A Little Less will be released in Ebook form only. When all eight broadsides have been published, I’ll compile them into a printed book that will be widely available.
You can find Why Politics Sucks at the following major Ebook distributors:

The Clarksville Writers Conference Is Almost Here…
I’ve been working feverishly the past couple of days getting ready for the 2016 Clarksville Writers Conference, which starts tomorrow at Austin Peay State University.
I’m doing two presentations. Tomorrow, June 2nd, at 2:45, I’m giving a presentation on the changing face of publishing and how to get started as an independent publisher. I’m calling it The Writer’s Survival Camp.
On Friday, June 3rd, I’m doing The Detective’s Journey, a panel on how classic mythic dramatic structure works in crime and detective fiction. It’s at 2:45 as well.
