This weekend I’ll be a guest at the Crossroads Writers Conference in Macon, Georgia. The guest list includes Gail Simone, Nathan Edmonson, Tina McElroy Ansa, Terry Kay, Jeffrey Stepakoff and a whole lot more. Registration opens at 8 AM in the lobby of the 567 Center for Renewal, and our workshops, panels and talks begin at 9 AM. I’ll be part of a panel at 9 AM entitled “How I First Got Published” and then I have a workshop called “How To Get the Most Out of Murder and Mayhem” at 4 PM. Hope to see some of you there!

In the past month, I’ve read virtually everything they’ve published and I’m now ready to reveal what books I thought were the best. I’ll be sticking with a few titles that aren’t on this list in the hopes that they improve but the ones below were the ones that left me genuinely excited about reading more:

The biggest and best thing I’ve done so far in New Pulp!
The image at left is by Bob Hall, who’s drawn nearly every major Marvel or DC hero over the years — and is probably best known for his awe-inspiring work on Valiant’s Shadowman series. It was a blast to see him depict The Rook! This cover will most likely be used as the front piece for The Rook: The Killing Games but that’s not confirmed yet.
Feel free to ooh and ahh.
It’s that time once more — where we bravely head over to Amazon.com and see what the five bestselling Barry Reese titles are! So, without further ado, here’s your Top Five:
A strong debut for Lazarus Gray and a return to the top five for The Rook — things are looking good!
