Novel! “The Rut” Shall Be Published by BWP!

Burning Willow Press has seen fit to publish my novel “The Rut.” Huge thanks to Edd Sowder and Kindra Sowder for including me in their great lineup of releases and with an incredible roster of talented authors.

The contract has been signed and the release date is tentative. As the ball gets rolling, I’ll keep you posted.

Expect cover art reveals. Blurbs. Book release parties. And a few freebies, and other exclusive content, for any readers that subscribe to my email list. I’ll likely give you a hefty e-book of short stories once the novel is released.

Stay near and dear as the countdown begins.

In the meantime, here’s the premise:

Relationships require hard work. If they are to last, sacrifices must be made. At what point does the idea of everlasting love become an obsession? Criminologist Dean Rollins finds himself on course to test the boundaries.

In Kentucky, while working on his second manuscript and dealing with a distant wife, Dean conducts interviews with an infamous Devil Worshipper in a well-known supermax prison. This murderous Southern man is part of a brotherhood who believe they must perform specific evil tasks to reap rewards in Hell. When he begins toying with Dean’s mind, how will things unfold?
Will Dean save himself from falling under the spells of his interviewee? Can he control his own destiny and pull his family out of The Rut?

Spiffy Cats Magazine’s Fitness Column

Thanks to the editor and creator, WJR Parks, of Spiffy Cats for giving me a column to write about something I am passionate about: Health.

But more than health. Strength.

This magazine is geared towards men, and a man should be strong, right? You don’t have to be Hercules or Schwarzenegger, but take care of your body and have a little muscle to provide and protect.

I won’t judge you either way. I’m not the kind.

The article is to help anyone needing that extra nudge to make change.

Be warned: as a men’s magazine, you may find nearly nude models or links to them. Think Playboy, or Maxim.

Here’s the link:

Mirren Hogan Interview

Mirren Hogan is celebrating the release of her historical fiction novel Night Witches. I asked her a few questions so you could get to know her. 
Author interview questions

Mirren doesn’t know it, but I sampled the beginning of Night Witches through Amazon. I gotta say, it was very well-written and I will be purchashing a copy soon.

 

Tell me a bit about your hobbies.
I don’t have a lot of time for hobbies, but I like to read and take my dog for walks in the forest behind our house.
How did you get into writing?
I’ve always written, but I think that’s because I’m an avid reader. What I read gives me ideas and those ideas have to go somewhere.
Did you choose the genre you write in or do your stories lead you?
Both. I’ve dabbled in different genres, depending on the story I wanted to tell, from fantasy to horror, thrillers to historical.
Where can I get a copy? You can buy a copy from –

How did you come up with the idea for this book?

 I first heard of the Night Witches when a friend shared a post on Facebook. I immediately knew it’d make an amazing story and started hunting down every shred of information I could find.

Who is your favourite character in this story and why?

Lilya Litviak. She was a real person, and the highest scoring female air-ace in history. She was small, but sassy and feisty.
