Killer Nashville Writers Conference

I’ll be attending the Killer Nashville conference starting August 22, 2019. These are always fun. Great panel discussions on many topics. My medical thriller SCOURGE is in the running for a Silver Falchion award, and people can now vote in the Readers’ Choice awards category. Feel free! (You might have to hit control-F, or the equivalent for Apple, and search for Charley or Pearson or Scourge to find me and vote.) Maybe I’ll see you there?

Site Hacked – again

Hi, all. Sorry for the problems accessing my site the past few weeks. The server company got hacked, and weird things happened for a while. Like, you’re just now seeing the post for April Fool’s Day. Ah, well, they seem to have things working now, in part because I changed the background theme. You like? There are plenty more options to choose from, so maybe I should switch around until we find one we like.

Cya! – Charley

April Fool’s Day

This one isn’t a joke. It’s serious. This book will rot your brain cells. (OK, not really, but it could make you choke on your coffee. More than once.) And it won an award for best anthology at the 2017 Killer Nashville writers conference, so it may be worth your time if you’re even a trace bit Pythonesque. Try a free Kindle sample, maybe. Or send it to your worst enemy. (heh, heh)

SCOURGE now available as self-pub

Alas, the SCOURGE publisher has folded. Too many books, not enough income, apparently. So now this medical thriller is self-published. Available from your local bookstore via Ingram Spark (ISBN 978-0997299328) or from Amazon at (links there for either paperback or Kindle).

Or — Click my name at the Amazon site to see a link to the humor anthology, “The Marianated Nottingham and Other Abuses of the Language.” Because it’s about time someone told the Sheriff of Nottingham’s side of the story — i.e., the truth about Robin Hood. (heh, heh)


SCOURGE publisher folding

Sad news for the writing community. On December 5, 2018, Fiery Seas Publishing announced their closure. Authors (including me) will have their material become self-published vice commercially. Alas, another potential market has been lost.
Off to work on formatting for re-release of e-book and (finally) release of paperback. Coming soon.
Reviews previously posted, like on Amazon . . . well, not sure what will happen to them. Depends on whether the account transfers to me, or I have to re-release via new account. We’ll see. Meanwhile, reviews posted elsewhere, like on the San Francisco Review of Books, should be fine.
Busy, busy!

SCOURGE Book Blog Tour

Whoa, check out the review of medical thriller SCOURGE here at San Francisco Review of Books! Such an honor.

Interviews and other reviews still coming in, and I’m posting links on Facebook & Twitter. One of the reviews got copied to Goodreads and another is on Instagram. Here’s a third and a fourth.

Plus, of course, there are reviews on Amazon. Shooting for 50, so the analytics recognize it as popular. Wanta join in? Super short works fine.

And then there are the interviews, like this one, and this two, and this three, and one with an excerpt, and yup, another, and again, and wow!

Fun, fun. And such a feeling to know my tale has reached some people. (Buy links here, or click on cover photo below.
