James Pruett Mysteries – Chapter One Excerpt

On January 14, 2013, in Uncategorized, WIP, by rsguthrie

  I’m trying something a little new here—I’ve just started my third book in the James Pruett Mystery Series that began with Blood Land.

WIP: Do I Love Cover Design More Than Writing?

On August 4, 2012, in Book Covers, Indie Authors, New Books, STEPHEN KING, WIP, by rsguthrie

I have the paperback version of Dark Prairies done and I #ammarketing like crazy, so yesterday I started back in on the third Detective Bobby Mac book Reckoning. I’m really excited about this book. It may not be my magnum opus, like Dark Prairies, but it is going to be the book that ties the […]

On July 8, 2012, in Book Release, Celebrities, Events, Famous Writers, Great Reads, New Books, WIP, by rsguthrie

Back Pain Sucks (or, Despite my Back, I’m Back) – Dedicated to Caleb

Wow. We had a wallop of a storm here a week ago and I tried to pretend I still had a little of the twenty year-old Herculean in me, running through the wind, downpour, and driving hail to save our basement from flooding. Oh, did I mention I was carrying a 27 foot extension ladder […]

Just Writing – Dark Prairies

On September 2, 2011, in WIP, by rsguthrie

Since I am a writer, and I am deep in the middle of my second book, Dark Prairies—and particularly since I feel like it is really starting to get some legs—I figured it was time to blog about it. To myself (this blog is so new, or so bad, that I still have only myself […]
