ian truman

Fall is a busy literary season so I want to get the news out ahead of the few events I’ll be attending in the coming weeks because I expect to be swamped with work,

I am really happy to present to the world the cover for Down with the Underdogs, a D’Arcy Kennedy mystery.

Ian Truman - Down with the Underdogs web

The follow-up to 2016’s Grand Trunk and Shearer is set to be released Mid 2018 (for now) on indie powerhouse Down and Out books. The novel is currently at the editing stage in the insanely capable hands of underground legends John McFetridge and Peter Rozovsky.

I would like to take a moment to thank Eric Campbell for believing in my work enough to support the expansion of the D’Arcy Kennedy world into an ongoing series I can be proud to write. Thank you.

Until then, you can always get Grand Trunk and Shearer HERE or meet…

On book serials and writing

What really is the reasoning behind using multiple books to tell a single story? I have read the first books of I don't know how many book serials (and I'm using serial here instead of series, I'll explain in a minute) and quite frankly, I don't see why the author thought it a good idea [...]

Embraceable – A Quick Chat with August McLaughlin

Valentine's Day. You're told that much like Christmas, the best way to show your love is to shower your special someone with gifts and attention. That's all well and good, but when was the last time you were told to do that for yourself? Women especially are taught how to show others love, but there's [...]

#WriterWednesday: Confessions of a Geriatric Prom Queen by Lila Lee Silvern

The theme of this book is hitting a touch close to home as I too ease on toward a rather decent age milestone. I will certainly be looking to read this one soon! Thanks to the #FeedArtNetwork (a.k.a. Dangerous Lee) for the post.   Source: #WriterWednesday: Confessions of a Geriatric Prom Queen by Lila Lee Silvern

5 Years Ago Today I Self-Published My First Book!

For real – download it. It is amazing. I didn’t think you could make condoms and other safe sex practices anything but utilitarian. I was wrong. :-). You will not look at the mechanics of putting on a condom the same 😉 after this.

Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt DownClick to read the media kit!

March 15, 2010 was a very exciting day for me. After more than a lifetime of dreaming and a year of writing, editing, photo shoots and all around hard work I self-published my first book, Keep Your Panties Up and Your Skirt Down.

At the time I was working professionally in HIV prevention and HIV/AIDS awareness was a passion of mine so publishing a book of erotic fiction with an emphasis on HIV education was right up my alley.

Two years prior I was published inZane’s Succulent Chocolate Flava 2so it would also seem that erotica was right up my alley!

Truth is, erotica is really not my genre of choice. Sure, I’m good at it. Damn good if I may toot my own horn, but I had no intention of releasing book after book of erotic fiction. Many of the short…

Don’t Sleep on the Indie Authors – An Unscolicited Review of Bronze City by K.S. Bowers

I would imagine quite a few readers out there are skittish when it comes to buying a book by a virtually unknown, self- or indie-published author. I admit, I'm reluctant myself. I am more willing to do it if I've had a chance to interact with or read other work by the author - blogs, [...]

Wait – I’ve read how many books in the last few weeks?

Since the beginning of October, I've read four books. Not novellas or short stories, but four, full on novel length works of fiction. To say my eyes are little tired would be an understatement.  All of this reading though has sparked all kinds of things in the writer portion of my brain. Divine Secrets of [...]

Book Review – The Case of the Empty Killer by John C. Scott

It's not often I read something that leaves me with my mouth hanging open in frank surprise at the end.  I've seen a couple of movies that managed to drop my jaw at their incredible, "I didn't see that coming" moments but rarely have I had a book trigger that same response.  The Case of [...]
