I hope to have my own digital book press up and running soon. I am working on the details of this venture (that may take a while), but I have decided upon a name and a logo. I will begin this venture by publishing my own books under the label. Hopefully I will expand to include other writer’s works. This will be a digital publishing venture only (at least to begin) in order to further market my books A Blade Away, Shero, Gothica, and possibly my upcoming Zombie series. The Zombie series is being reviewed by a few agents and publishers. Pending their decisions, this series may or may not be published through Autumnal Press.

A Blade Away

blade_away_coverThe first entry in the “fringe-killer” series finds a young female detective and her flamboyant partner up against a killer, the likes they have never seen. “Lakme” is a self-appointed messiah bringing his own special brand of salvation with a scalpel and a twisted sense of reality to local transgendered males. Driven to this course from childhood, Lakme wields his weapons with purpose but no skill as he forces his victims into the world he believes they must belong.

To make matters worse, the brutal murders force a homophobic rift in the police force, driving Jamie Davenport and Skip Abrahm to desperate measures.

A Blade Away is a thriller with just enough humor to give you room to breathe between the gruesome acts committed by the story’s sadistic killer Lakme. The “fringe-killer” series continues with the second installment “Gothica” already published on Amazon for the Kindle reader.

Sample or purchase A Blade Away from Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Smashwords.

Shero, by Jack Wallen

Shero is not your ordinary super hero, that is unless you consider a cross dressing super hero a part of the norm. But unlike the every day super hero, Shero battles more than evil villains. Shero battles broken heels, runs in his stockings, broken nails, and the scorn of the public at large.

In this first installment Shero finds the perfect black dress, a possible lover, a deadly shade of fingernail polish, some nasty, nasty foes, an internal super hero political war, and a narrator full of attitude.

Caution: You may find yourself yelling “You go girl!” which could certainly lead to public humiliation. You’ve been warned.

Sample or purchase your copy of Shero on Barnes & Noble, Amazon, or Smashwords.

Gothica

gothica_coverA killer from the past manages to escape the bonds of time and redefines “horror” for Jamie Davenport. In this new entry to the “fringe-killer” series, Gothica, Detective Davenport finds herself dealing with horror brought to life from the past. This time the killer is terrorizing the same building that was once a prison for the criminally insane, but is now a dance club where darker denizens of society try to fit in. Gothica weaves elements of the horror and the crime thriller genres together as well as melding the past and the present. A killer that shouldn’t exist and a cross-section of society most do not care for, meeting in a club filled with dark desires, angst, and pain. The past and the present collide in the darkest recesses of a club built upon suffering, angst, and sorrow. Sample and purchase this book from Barnes & NobleAmazon, or Smashwords.
