My Boxed Set Co-Writer Betta Ferrendelli!

On October 28, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

When I was asked to join a boxed-set collaboration, I must admit I felt trepidation at first, but when I saw the lineup of writers, I was more than happy to participate; I was honored. All four writers with whom I would be collaborating are successful, prolific, and talented writers. What writer would not join […]


Do Writers Hear THEIR Biological Clock Ticking?

On October 25, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

Most of us are familiar with the outdated, cliched saying regarding a female hearing some phantom biological clock ticking (implying, of course, that all women want children, that there is a shelf life on eggs, and, well, you can calculate the rest of the math on your own). Clearly not all women (or men) wish […]

A Challenge For Clint Eastwood

On September 21, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

As I prepare to release the third novel in my Sheriff James Pruett series, Honor Land, I had occasion to reread the first book in the collection, Blood Land, again. I’ve talked about that book being the one that was always inside me, growing up in Wyoming. I know those people so well; their mannerisms, […]


Want An Irresistable Character? Try An Antihero.

On September 20, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

I have always been a character-driven writer. In fact, I happen to believe that if you write great characters, you can walk them through just about any storyline and the readers will come. People need to care about the characters in your writing. If they don’t—if they could not care less about John or Beth […]


I’m Back, Jack. Crotchety, Bat-Sh*t Crazy Clients Be Damned

On September 17, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

And let me tell you, after a trip to the Big Easy, and a couple voodoo shops, I am ready to follow through with my threats of cursing you with damnation. You may have noticed a dearth of blogs from me (then again, you may not have). Well, long story short, I had a writing […]


Freedom Is Not Free (An Important Cliché)

On July 6, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

Yes, it’s cliché, but the reality of clichés is that they more often than not develop from fact and truth. The term “cliché” is most often used to denigrate a lack of imagination on the part of the writer. I don’t disagree with that label most of the time. Cliché writing as a practice is, […]

Scott Bury’s Blog Tour: “Army of Worn Soles”

On June 22, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

When I jumped feet-first into the publishing swimming pool in 2011, it was pretty packed—not a lot of room to find yourself a small square foot or two without someone’s chubby foot stepping on yours or catching an errant elbow in the eye socket. Quite a few of the swimmers I ran into that first […]


Game Of Thrones, Funniest Man Alive, And A Comment On Speed Traps

On June 20, 2014, in Uncategorized, by rsguthrie

So I am going to admit up front that I have not—at least yet—read the Game of Thrones series of novels. The last time I invested time (or had enough time to invest) in a Fantasy series was Lord of the Rings, decades ago. However, that said, I am HOOKED like a junkie looking for his next […]
