When this column started, I had given up on writing novels. Now?
The debut novel of my first series is HERE!
Publisher’s Weekly: “Steeped in the style of 1970s pulp detective fiction . . . Brimstone is cut from the cloth of the classic wisecracking detective, and Ridler peppers the text with perfectly pitched hard-boiled vernacular. The novel’s wild mix of comedy and supernatural perils bodes well for its detective’s future adventures.”
And the great Brian Keene called it, “Deliciously uncomfortable, wonderfully gritty, and a worthy successor to the occult detectives of old.”
Published from New York to Cali and all points in between. Positive reviews and endorsements, from my command of plot to characters.
We will return next month to get the final installment of The Gutters, which will explore the years Before Brimstone, when I paid my dues in massive amounts of failure, broken dreams, and stupidity. When I stopped worshipping success and had to survive. Because in a strange way, when I gave up on dreams, better things than dreams happened.
Things like reality, in the form of a debut novel.
