Coming up for air...whew!


There are exciting things happening at Deadly Reads. Over the last few weeks, Lisa and I have been working hard on creating Pre-Made ebook covers to offer for sale on DeadlyReads.com. These will be for the Indie Author who want a great cover for a bargain price. As Indie Authors, ourselves, we understand how expensive it can be to get a quality cover. Of course, we will be offering custom made covers as well.  You'll be able to find them on the Author Services area of the website.  We're hoping to have the covers available in the next couple of weeks.
Also, we've had requests to resume our Deadly Reads Radio shows. After leaving Blog Talk Radio, we had decided to take a break before resuming the show as a YouTube Podcast on our Deadly Reads YouTube Channel. Doing the shows was a true joy, and we look forward to spending some time with the wonderful guests wanting to join us on our new adventure in Podcasting.  I will post the information for our first podcast.
If you want to listen to our past shows, you can find them HERE.

I'm doin' the Happy Dance


When I published my debut book in 2011, I was as green as they come.  I had no idea what it took to be a Self-Published Author, but over time I decided it was best to learn as much about the self-publishing industry as possible.  So, I buckled down and began. I have to say I never would have done it without all those great YouTube instructional videos. LOL

Over the last several months I have been busy working on projects for other authors through Deadly Reads Author Services.  First, there was a Military Thriller Trilogy for a first-time author where a complete edit, formatting for print and e-book, and covers for print and ebook were performed.  The next projects were 2 children's books where I did all the illustrations, formatted for print and ebook, and made both covers.

I put in some LONG hours on those projects, so when I sent the last book today to the happy author, I felt as though a thousand pounds was lifted off my shoulders.  Now I get a breather to work on my own stuff before the next projects begin in a couple of months.  But which project should I do?  I guess I'll put the names of my books waiting to be finished into a hat and see which one is the winner.  LOL

If any of you need help getting your masterpiece ready for publication, I'd love to give you a quote.

This Will Make Your Day


I was on Facebook and came across this fun video.  Once I watched it, I knew I had to share it with you.  So often we get so caught up in the drudgery of life that we forget to enjoy ourselves and all the gifts life provides.  In the time, this video has been up on YouTube is already has over 25,000,000 views.  After you watch it you'll understand why.

Take a moment to watch this wonderful video and I know you'll be smiling and dancing just like I am...enjoy!!

A BIG change at Deadly Reads Radio


Deadly Reads Radio, Journey into the Night has been on Blog Talk Radio since we debuted October 2015.  While we've enjoyed our time on Blog Talk Radio, we have decided to take our show on a different path.  In fact, tomorrow night, Feb. 16th is our last show on Blog Talk Radio at 9 pm CST.  The author, Stephen Thorne wanted to do a Pre-Recorded show, and I have to say that we had a blast.  He was quite amusing. LOL

Starting next month, we will be doing our shows as a Podcast on our Youtube Channel.  We will have the same format of interviewing some of the most interesting and fun guests, and I promise that Lisa and I will still be as silly as ever.  We will also have it so listeners can still call in and speak with our guests.

I have to admit that I'm a bit nervous about the change because this means a whole new learning experience for me.  But, I figure if I could learn how to do the tech stuff on Blog Talk, I can on our new format. LOL

I hope you will continue to listen to our shows, or if you haven't yet that you give us a try.  Lisa and I have been blessed with those who have agreed to come on and spend the evening with us, talking about the exciting things they do in their careers.  We've interviewed Bestselling/ Award Winning Authors and others in the Publishing Industry, Actors and Actresses, Movie Makers/Producers/Directors/Screenwriters, and those in the Music Industry, 

So, follow this blog if you haven't already, and get ready for announcements of our exciting new shows.  Lisa and I have come a LONG way on this journey, and we've both grown as interviewers along the way.  We look forward to meeting more talented people and bringing back some of or favorite past guests while providing you, the listener, more quality shows.

You can listen to our past shows here -   2015   2016   2017

You can also follow us on our Deadly Reads Facebook Page,  Twitter, and Website.

Boding Evil is now FREE!


I'm excited to announce that my ebook, Boding Evil is now FREE!  What's even more exciting is you not only get one bone-chilling story but TWO!  I invite you to go to your ebook outlet of choice and grab yourself a copy and then curl up with two great tales of things that go bump in the night.

Book Description 
Boding Evil – It WILL find you!
Evil lurks in the small town of Greer Springs, lying in wait for its next victim. Excited to fulfill a lifelong dream, nothing could have prepared Gene Mason for the horrors his family faced when they moved into a house with a dark and deadly past.
While Boding Evil is a fictional story, many of the situations portrayed were inspired by actual events told to the author. Some will say the events depicted in this book are merely objects of a fanciful imagination, but for those who lived through them, the events were quite real.
Included is a  bonus story titled: Sacrificing Souls.
