He kept his head down as the locals gathered in the muddy street to see who Marshal Pete was bringing to Bleakvilles jailhouse.
Several women shoved men out of the way to get a look at the man trying to conceal his face. Widow Thornton, jumped in front of the marshal’s horse stopping his advance abruptly.

Author Phil Slattery takes us on an interesting ride. He gives a twist ending to the story, that once revealed, you realize he peppered the story with clues. The second twist ending hits out of left field, and left this reader wanting for more. The motivation is as old as storytelling, but that doesn't make... Continue Reading →

I signed up for the good, the bad, and the ugly in becoming an indie author. The good? Absolute creative control. The bad? As with any writer: writer’s block, nasty reviews, and disappointing book sales always hover, like bloodthirsty mosquitoes. The ugly? I’m about to get into that. There are some annoyances that are unique to indie authors. I have since learned not to take any of these things personally, and to push back, if I even get a whiff of disdain. So, here are the not-so-nice things I hear while on my independent writing journey, and my brilliant rebuttals.
