So as many of you know my book Paranormal Contact Vol. 3 was up for the best Paranormal Book in the Summer Indie Book Awards from Metamorph Publishing. Well, the winners were announced this week!

I didn’t win. That’s okay. As the old saying goes it’ was just an honor to be nominated, and it was.  Would I like to have won? Of course I would have. It wasn’t written in the stars for me to win though.

I’d like to congratulate Nicky Charles for the book “Deceit Can Be Deadly” which won in my category.  I might have to go check out the book!

There will be an update later in next week about the progress of my next book. In the mean time have a good one everybody!

Happy Labor Day + Updates

Happy Labor Day everyone. If you were one of the lucky people to get a three day weekend I hope you are able to enjoy it. I know I am!

It’s been almost a year since my last book release. I’m not proud of it. But I have no one to blame but myself. But I’m hard at work with my next book. I’m hoping that I can have it released by the end of the year. If it’s not released in December, then it will be an early 2018 release. This book will not be in the paranormal realm at it. It’s more Everything Comes Full Circle, then anything else. A bit comedy, a bit drama and all about relationships. It also does focus on a reunion. I seem to have a soft spots for those. But this is quite different though.

This will be my first release under a new book label. It will be released under Wicked Good Time Publishing.

While I’m temporarily stepping away from the world of the paranormal, it’s just that. Temporarily. I’m kicking around some ideas for future releases that take me back into either The Time Traveler’s World or back to Paranormal Contact.  I haven’t yet decided what will be my follow up to this right now. But you know I will let you know as well.

If you haven’t had a chance to vote yet for Paranormal Contact Vol. 3, please do me a favor and vote. You can vote for the next week every single day! Sure they spelled my name wrong. With a name like Trelewicz, are we really surprised? Maybe the next book should be under Treleqicz as an inside joke?

If there are any authors who need a little free publicity, feel free to message me. I’m looking to do some more Authors Helping Authors. Whatever I can do to help other Independent Authors, I’m glad to do. Let me know if I can help you!

In the mean time, have a good one everybody!

Welcome back everyone! Hope you had a good weekend. I just finished watching this week’s episode of Game Of Thrones and damn do I need to catch my breath. Later in the week I will be watching Sharknado 5. And anyone who listened to the old podcasts know how I feel about Nova. Glad to see her back!

Alright, so with voting coming up soon for the Metamorph Summer Indie Awards, what better way to help then to put Paranormal Contact Volume 3 up for free leading up to voting. So you will be able to get it from August 27-31. Of course I’ll let you know as we get closer to voting how you can help me win.

Books for Free August 2017

As many of you know, it’s been a while since I released a book. I’ve been working on my Kids’ Anthology, but writing has kind of stalled on it. So while I’m keeping it on the backburner, starting next week I’m starting work on a brand new book.  It’s not going to about the paranormal at all. It will be more in the vein of “Everything Comes Full Circle” then anything else. So I will probably start up my Word Count Wednesdays as well. So look for some news on that in the upcoming weeks as well.

There’ll be a new Top 5 coming in a day or two as well. I’m open to ideas if you want to float any my way, just reach out!

In the mean time, have a good one everybody!

Holy Moley!

Good evening everyone. Do I have some news for you? Are you sitting down? Luckily for me, I was sitting down when I got the news.

Metamorph Publishing is a small press publishing company that was founded by independent author Markie Madden. She understands the struggles of being an independent author because she is one! Well, to help out those authors she has created a yearly award contest for indy writers. There are many different categories and a lot of great authors have been nominated this year.

One of those authors is me! Paranormal Contact Vol. 3 has been nominated and I’m beyond words! Voting will begin in a few weeks, so if you are interested in helping me out, check back here in a little bit and I will share how you can do that!

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone. Hope you’re having a good weekend! Picnic? Let me know what time and I’ll be there!

The world of independent writing is a tricky one. So sometimes you need to call in a few favors. My business partner Jeremy Croston was nominated for an award last week, but he needs votes. So if you get a moment, the Two Dudes Brews & Books could use your help. About 2/3 of the way down you will see The Negative Man: City Of Chaos. Go ahead and click that and submit it.

You rock!

The Negative Man: City Of Chaos – Vote here!

On behalf of Jeremy, thank you!

I’m speechless right now…

Good morning/afternoon/evening readers.

For those of you that don’t really know me as a person, I’m loud. I can be obnoxious at times (Truth be told, who can’t?). I have the mouth of an Italian sailor on shore leave for ten hours. So for me to be at a total loss for words is a rarity. But I am right now. Why?

Here’s why. My business partner Jeremy Croston (ragnorakonice.wordpress.com) was nominated for an award for his book The Cactus Killer recently. His professor from school is part of the team that makes those nominations. In an effort to help me be a better writer, Jeremy showed him Paranormal Contact Volume One. He was impressed by it! Sure, it’s not perfect as someone here recently told me. Nominations had all ready been announced, so my book isn’t truly eligible. But he gave me a special nomination anyway and said “This is to make sure you get a book ready for next year’s contest”. Rest assured Mr. O’Brien I am hard at work. Thank you for the inspiration!

While the name of our company is Two Dudes, Brews and Books there is a third honorary member to our team. His name is Jack Crosby. If you read Paranormal Contact Volume One (and I really hoped that you did!) you know both Jack and Jeremy show up as exaggerated versions of themselves. Well, Jack has released his second book today. It’s called Old War Stories. It’s a sequel to his first book Death Among Us. If you’re fans of books full with demons and sex and violence and sex and violence and sex and a little more violence, you need to be reading his books. They are available right now on Amazon.com.
