I think I’m almost ready to start work on my Sherlock Holmes novella. I’m still a bit hesitant about it for many reasons but I’m going to give it the old college try! With any luck, it’ll all come together and we’ll have a ton of fun with it.
Liberty Girl continues to do well on the New Pulp Best Sellers List (# 3 this week) and I sat down to talk with Art Sippo on an episode of Art’s Reviews last night. You can download it here. It’s always fun to talk to Art and I hope you’ll enjoy listening to it. On a related note, Art’s sometime co-host Ric Croxton posted a review of Liberty on Amazon.com. Here’s what he had to say:
5 out of 5 stars. Barry Reese has done an excellent job in introducing fans to Liberty Girl. As soon as I heard Art Sippo talk to Barry Reese on his Art’s Reviews of the Book Cave family of podcasts http://thebookcave.libsyn.com/ I had to read the book. Only problem I had is, I wish it was much longer. As always, I look forward to reading what Barry Reese has to offer next.
Thanks, Ric! Pro Se’s having a bit of success with these digest-sized books, which generally contain novellas and have a low price point. I’m rather fond of them myself even though sometimes I have to keep myself from stretching the story out like I would for a longer book. Still, I think it worked really well for Liberty Girl!
Folks have asked me what projects are coming out soon and I’ve been increasingly forced to admit that I really don’t know, lol. All of these things have been turned into publishers so they’ll be out someday (I assume!):
Moonstone – G8 & His Battle Aces; Johnny Dollar
Pro Se Productions – Gravedigger Volume 2, Lazarus Gray Volume 4, The Damned Thing re-issue, The Rook Volume Three Special Edition, my Pulse Fiction story, Tales of The Rook Volume 2, my part of the round-robin project
Radio Archives – Box 13
Hell, there’s probably more, too, that I’ve completely forgotten about. I could stop writing today and still be appearing in print with “new” material for awhile to come.
Of course, I’m not doing that, am I?
Hopefully sometime soon I’ll have something new from George Sellas to show all of you — it’s not for publication but I plan to get a lot of mileage out of it on social media! Plus, it’s going to make one hell of a desktop wallpaper for my laptop 😉
Please don’t forget that my Rabbit Heart novel is now back in print. Set in my hometown of Milledgeville, Georgia, this novel is an R-Rated horror novel that has some pulpy connections. Ascott Keane, longtime foe of Doctor Satan, is a major character in this one. If you think you know my writing, you really need to check out Rabbit Heart… and prepare to be blown away, if I do say so myself.
And bring the puke bucket!
