The weekend is fast approaching, which means that my talk at the Crossroads Writers Conference is starting to sneak up on me. I’ll be talking about the growth of New Pulp and the many publishers that fall into that category… giving people an idea about who to submit to and how to get accepted. It’ll be more thrilling than it sounds (hopefully)!
The Adventures of Gravedigger Volume One picked up a nice little review on Facebook yesterday, courtesy of Mark Beaulieu. This is what he said: I don’t think I’ve mentioned this here yet, but I read Barry Reese’s GRAVEDIGGER vol. 1 and enjoyed it quite a bit. It was a fun, action packed pulp tale. Easily some of his best writing and that’s saying something since his Rook vol. 1 got me reading New Pulp stuff and eventually got me editing for Pro Se Productions (You can like their page). Really fun stuff. And the cover is fantastic. But I’m always partial to Nazi villains. I blame Indiana Jones. (Kindle edition only $2.99)
Thanks, Mark! I’m really pleased that you enjoy the book — hopefully you’ll get just as much enjoyment out of the second book, which should be coming your way in early 2014.
Because I had a sick son yesterday, I wasn’t able to add on to the Pulse Fiction tale I’m currently working on. I did write one hell of a great scene on Tuesday so hopefully I’ll be able to continue that momentum as I head into the second half of the story. I’m looking forward to typing THE END on it.
Pro Se has a number of things in production at the moment – the new edition of Rabbit Heart, Liberty Girl and Tales of The Rook Volume Two are all on the way. Tales of The Rook Volume Two will feature stories from Adam Lance Garcia, Russ Anderson, James Palmer and David White… all behind a gorgeous cover by Grant Miehm! Grant’s work first came to my attention back when he was doing Legend of the Shield for DC Comics and I’ve been a fan ever since. That’s his cover adorning this blog post — and I think it’s a real beaut! I hope you agree!
Take care out there, folks!
