Writing and Publishing Updates

I’ve got some writing and publishing updates that are mostly Western related, hence the doodle by my buddy William E.

First up: Cash Laramie and Gideon Miles will return in a story titled “Legends.” This one, co-written with Chuck Tyrell, has our heroes in 1920s New Orleans as a sequel to “The Wicked.” "Legends" will be in the upcoming issue of Pulp Modern edited by Alec Cizak. Mr. Cizak is planning to have the third issue out in a few weeks.

I received a most welcomed email from Wayne D. Dundee who wrote to say he’s started his second Cash Laramie novel. He recently made an inspirational visit to the Vedauwoo Rocks area of Wyoming where a stellar plot for the new novel will take place. It sounds like a serious rival for Manhunter’s Mountain. By the way, Mountain is still riding high on the Western chart and showing considerable determination on the hardboiled chart. Thanks, Wayne!

BEAT to a PULP: Round Two is still in the eBook works. We’re hoping it will be available later this week.

Also coming up soon is an eBook collection of mine called The Education of a Pulp Writer: 10 Crime Short Stories.

Never slow down and you never grow old, right?

That’s it for me. What are you up to?

You are our impresario, David. What did you do before this?

AC said...

PM III, as you stated, and about a month after that, Uncle B's Drive-In Fiction. Then I'm taking a freakin' vacation! (Which means, writing a novel...)

Evan Lewis said...

Very cool news.

David Cranmer said...

I'll make sure you get a copy of Cash when the time comes, Alan.

Nothing that prepared me for publishing, Patti. And you are too kind as usual.

AC, From what I've heard Uncle B's Drive-In Fiction is going to rock.

Thanks again for a top story in ROUND TWO, Evan. And a copy IS coming your way. I should have contributors copies this week.

Always glad to know things are hopping over in your shop. Means more good stuff on the way. And that you are keeping out of trouble. Ha.

A visit to New Orleans for Cash, eh? Cool

You're a champion Mr. Cranmer. BTAP Round 2 will soon be on my ereader.

What book/story is “The Wicked.”? It's not ringing a bell.

David Cranmer said...

Ron, Idle hands are the...

Charles, I have Miles running a jazz club there. Many of the later stories will take place in NO.

Just a few more days, Chris.

PokerBen, "The Wicked" is a short story that appeared in PULP MODERN #1.

More great writing on the way, congrats!

Out of everything you mentioned, I'm most curious about the crime stories -and why they're bundled under the blog name. Mysterious...

Thanks, Oscar.

Richard, "The Education of a Pulp Writer" first appeared as a short story in the Yellow Mama webzine. I've always liked that title (obviously) and have decided to name the collection Pulp Writer.

Currently reading Cash and Gideon, Vol. 1. Good stuff. :)
