Pre-Order My Novel!

July 31, 2022

My first novel, The Mean Reds, will be published by Stephen F. Austin University Press in October. As many of you know, pre-orders are extremely important for small-press books. They pump up those online algorithms, which helps get more eyes on your book. Please read the summary below, and if you’re interested, consider ordering a copy of the book.

Sam Drift is a small-town movie reviewer who is forced to write an article about an exotic dancer that recently died outside of an unpopular strip club. His editor says it’s a simple slip-and-fall, but Sam isn’t so sure. Maybe the dame had a drug problem. Perhaps she ran afoul of the mob. Now she’s swimmin’ with the fishes, see. In the meantime, Sam’s ex is back in town for a film festival, where she’s attending the premiere of a movie that she stole from Sam when she left him. Will Sam solve the murder and get the girl? Or is he in over his pot-smoking head?

Part Big Sleep and part Big Lebowski, The Mean Reds is a quirky small-town mystery told by one of the most unreliable narrators ever known.

      You’d have to ask my wife for a true scientific definition, but it’s basically a small colorful snake that is afraid of everything and sometimes escapes from its aquarium and is lost for days until one night at 2am the cats freak out and you find the snake at the front door as though it’s waiting for a package to be delivered.
