I haven't been on here for sometime, thought I might give a little update: I have two new books to be released, one is a poetry book title 'Somewhere in the Shadows': the second is a novel, titled, 'Justice or Vengeance', this is the third in a four book series of 'The War is Over'.
As my 3rd Novel and 7th Poetry books are with the publisher; I sit here working on my 4th Novel and 8th Poetry book. The thoughts, ideas, story lines tumble through my head and I have to get them out. I have to write. My Novels are a 4 book series, western themed; 1st: The War is Over - 2nd: Call of the Gun - 3rd: Vengeances or Justice (soon to be released) - 4th: Out for Blood (in the works). As I'm finishing up the 4th the story line for a new series is running through my head. Mingled with the thoughts for another novel are the story lines for new poems. My desk is as cluttered with notes as my head is with ideas, phrases. If only I could write as fast as it comes to me . . .
During the August Car Show downtown Somerset, Ky. Carnegie Community Arts Center had a ‘Step Back in Time’ theme. We had a great turn out, people come in to cool down from the heat and enjoy an ice cream treat and listen to live music by our local musicians. Next car show coming up in September, along with our ‘Step Back in Time, we are considering hosting ‘Authors/Writers’. Wondering if any Writers would be interested.
August 31st & September 1st, had a book signing at Carnegie Community Arts Center, 'Authors Recognition Day'. I had a great time and met some very talented authors. Carnegie Community Arts Center, 107 Main St. Somerset, Ky.
Poetry has always been a passion of mine and I have six poetry books published. One of my poetry books ‘The Sound of Loneliness’ was co-authored with my daughter Trinity a very talented writer.
My Publisher, Kathy Ragle kept asking me to write a novel; I had given thought to it a few times, but had never really applied myself to the full extent of doing so. But with her encouragement, I gave it a shot and a year later in 2016 my first western novel ‘The War is Over’ was released through Gibson-Ragle Publishing Co.
July 27th, 2017 my second western novel ‘Call of the Gun’ a sequel to ‘The War is Over’ was released and is now available. It can be purchased on this web site: www.johncolyer.weebly.com Check out the ‘Purchase Page’ on this site to see and order any of my books. My books are also available through: www.gibsonraglepublihing.weebly.com and Amazon.com.
I am currently working on the third book in ‘The War is Over’ series, titled ‘Justice or Vengeance’. I’m not sure if I will run this series any further . . . I am however working on a separate western novel, I might run a series on it. Also in the works are two poetry books. I hope to get at least a couple of them out this year, we’ll see how that goes. jcc
