Welcoming the Newest Arrival: First Relic

FirstRelic_DavidMarkBrown_Cover_5Strap in and pop a dramamine. The ride continues with the introduction of my newest series, Relic Hunters. First in the series, the aptly titled First Relic, continues with familiar characters from the DMB Files…but with a twist. (You’ll have to read it to find out!)

I’m describing the two series as parallel. Book #1 of either series serves as an ideal starting spot. Knowledge of one series is not required to enjoy the other, but reading both will provide a fuller understanding. And if that hasn’t made your blood boil, I’ll soon be publishing season one of The Green Ones (a dystopian serial) which will weave it’s way back and forth through both of the other series. The Green Ones will also serve as on on ramp capable of being enjoyed in isolation from the rest of the DMB universe.

Mine is a truly dizzying intellect. (Or so they say.) I can’t help it. Before I know what has happened, I discover a new angle into the universe of my own creating (and named thusly) and follow it into a new series of books.

I don’t plan on stopping the madness anytime soon (probably for as long as sales continue to climb). Next on the docket I hope to stumble into something along the lines of the Young DMB Files (for middle grades), or a redneck, comedy spin off based from the DMB Files. At the same time, I’ll be trying to complete a new novel in each of the existing series every year. (I think I can, I think I can.)

Why My Eighth Book is Different

DesertGodssmallYup. Eight. It’s been three years since I started writing full-time. During the first year I worked exclusively on my first book, Fistful of Reefer. The next year I hammered out The Austin Job, Twitch and Die! and a compilation of Lost DMB File shorts.

Over the last twelve months, I’ve written De Novo Syndrome, Desert Gods, The Green Ones: Season One, and now I’m polishing up First Relic. And you know what? I’m starting to learn the ropes as a professional writer.

The reason I’m most confident of this fact? My eighth book has been nothing but pure product. The kind of product you dip your pinky finger into and dab on your tongue. You smear it across the front of your teeth, turn to your peers and say, “It’s pure. Break it down, boys.” [Read more…]
