This is how I pay the bills.


So in order to pay the mortgage, I feel obligated to harass you fine people every now and then into spending some money.  I've been mostly pimping my fantasy trilogy recently since that's my latest thing, but just to mix it up, let's reach into the bag of forgotten stuff.

My first novel was Gun Monkeys, and it was nominated for an Edgar Award.  After being published by the fine folks at UglyTown, Bantam Dell picked up mass market and eBook rights.  I found out recently that the book has finally earned out after a 39 dollar check arrived in the mail.  BIG BUCKS.  So if you want to see the book that got me started, well, have a look maybe.

This was such a fine book - I bought the ugly town and a paperback reissue. I have given it to friends and spoke of it to numerous people, back in the day I wrote a review which appeared in the now defunct Cleveland Free Times. It deserves a wider following.

Thanks for that, JJ.

Much obliged.

I still say a limited, special edition copy needs made. Leather bound, signed, and in a frame with a pair of Taurus Judge .410 ga pistols.

Hell of an idea, Beau!

This was, and still is for me; the book of books. I bought the original paperback 15 years ago and read it so much the first 20 pages have fallen out. It's high time for a new copy.

That's awesome, Zachary. I really do appreciate readers with that much passion!
