Icefall by David Wood Currently Free

Hey Folks,

A great deal. Icefall, part of the bestselling Dane Maddock Adventures (by David Wood) is now free on through most ebook sources. It's a book that works as both a standalone and introduction to the Dane Maddock, Bones Bonebrake, and their adventures--think Indiana Jones but starring two former Navy SEALs.

Actually, it's my favorite book featuring Dane Maddock, except for Cavern, which I co-authored with David.

Give it a try...it's a quick, action-packed read, and it's free.

And, if you haven't read Cavern, consider giving it a try as well. :)

Most Recent Review of Flank Hawk

Here's Flank Hawk's most recent review on Amazon--some pretty neat authors in which to be grouped!

"I have read Tolkien, Goodkind, Donaldson, and McKiernan. Irvin (II) has stood toe to toe with their work, and in+my opinion delivered an equal tale.

Flank Hawk lays out a tale of fantasy, of a future yet to be made, and a tapestry of alZ the sword and sorcery familiars mixed with historical machines of death.

The characters are breathing, and the treatment of the yarn they weave will have you enraptured.

I'm sure you will not regret the read.

Very well done!

Now on to the next book.😊"--Bookworm Forever

Mindy McGinnis Radio Interview

Hey Folks,

Here's an interesting interview with Mindy McGinnis, a very popular author. She writes in a host of genres, from post-apocalyptic and fantasy to Gothic horror and contemporary.

She talks about writing, becoming an author, regular life and an insight as life as an author, social media, and more...

This year Mindy also visited the school where I teach. She is a very engaging speaker.

Hard Luck Hank: Dumber than Dead

I'm currently waiting for the audiobook release of Hard Luck Hank: Dumber than Dead. It's the 7th book in the Hard Luck Hank series. I find the mutant Hank's tales interesting and amusing. The author indicated that the audiobook recording is about two-thirds of the way finished.

Currently re-listening to the series. Through the first three. Dumber than Dead will probably be released before I get through the series to date, but that's okay.

For those who might be interested, here's an interview I did with Steven Campbell a few years back: Interview with Author Steven Campbell

Betrayal Audiobook Posted on Youtube--Take Down Request

A reader/listener of my audiobooks notified me that on his Youtube feed, he saw a Betrayal, and sent me the link.

I went through the process to claim copyright infringement, and Youtube had the video removed within 18 hours. Pretty fast.

While I check for funky thinks online with my works, I had not been scrutinizing Youtube as thoroughly as I should have been. Will have to be more focused on that front.

Oh well, I guess it's all part of the life of an author.

Neal James has Passed Away

Neal James

Neal James, sidekick of Ernie Brown, Jr. (better known as The Turtle Man) passed away Feb 1st.

I and my family enjoyed the show, Call of the Wildman, in which Neal played a significant role, narrating their adventures and holding the bag open so the Turtle Man could stuff in the snake or angry possum or whatever else his partner had caught for rescue. My younger daughter thought Neal was pretty brave for doing that).

Anyway, just thought I would share the sad news--sad for us, but now Neal James is in Heaven :)
