The author was called for jury duty a few years ago. This story goes through the jury selection process and the subsequent trial for a murder case. When the Judge dismissed us, she said we could talk to the media or write a book or whatever we wanted. So I did.

Followed by my two volume United States Civil War blockbuster:

Title: Rebel Gold
Terrance Bramblett, Civil War action fiction

Available: Rebel Gold Part 1 https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/300259 (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/300259) and Part 2 https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/314408 (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/314408)

One day I read a single paragraph in a magazine about the Confederates chaotic abandonment of Richmond on April 2, 1865. They took everything on the last train out and left the town blazing. I thought it would be amusing to have someone steal some of the Treasury gold and make their way West. I find it very entertaining and well researched.

Title: Rain Tomorrow
Terrance Bramblett, speculative fiction

Available: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/366046 (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/366046)

This is as topical as current headlines. The world continues on it's spiral of global warming and does not like the end result.

Post by: The Dude Abides on May 01, 2014, 09:02:07 PM
And finally, most current, just published yesterday:

Title: The Cooper's Hawk Mission
Terrance Bramblett, spy fiction

Available: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/433609 (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/433609)

A second story thief steals something that gets the spies interested and him in a heap of trouble. It is an entertaining romp of clever spycraft and violence. The title comes because I had taken a photo of a hawk in my backyard, so I know there is no copyright issue. It is a case of using what you have.
