Don't forget about Kindle Match Book!

For anyone who has bought (or does buy) the physical book, you also get the ebook (Kindle Version). So if you want to read the book, you know, immediately, then all you have to do is either download the Kindle App or, if you own a Kindle, then you can just download it on that device. Obviously I am thrilled that people have bought copies already, and I want to make sure that you don't have to wait if you don't want to. So just in case you didn't know, now you do.

Thanks for all the support, and for the text messages, and congratulations and so on. It was really nice to hear from friends out of the blue on this. Glad to know that you all still care despite how rarely we get to see or talk with one another. I know I wasn't really promoting this much before it was done, but I barely had enough time to get it all squared away before the deadline.

If you want to get a copy of The Bombmaker's Wife (which will increase my chances of winning the competition and, I believe, increase your chances of reading a good book this summer), please click the button below.

That button will take you to the Kindle Version. If you want to buy the physical version (which will get you the Kindle Version as well, then click this button instead.

Here is a little video clip that is part of the bigger trailer I am working on for The Bombmaker's Wife. It just happened to have a match in it, so it is a visual pun related to Kindle match book. That's about all there is to it. Happy Sunday.

The Bombmaker's Wife: how you can help.

A few people have asked me if there is anything they can do to help me win this contest. First off: thanks so much for caring enough to even utter those words.It means a lot.

Here is what I know about the contest:

The contest winner receives 20,000 British Pounds and a book deal along with a marketing campaign and all the glory that goes with it. Also here are the FAQs for the contest's webpage.

Kindle Storyteller Page!

So I want to win, surely. But aside from writing (what I believe to be) a great book, getting it set up as both a good looking physical book and an well-formatted ebook, and then getting those books entered into the contest yesterday, there isn't a whole lot that I can see from Amazon about what exactly I need to do to increase my odds of winning. What I do know is that if I hadn't entered the contest, then there is no way the book could win at all. That's a truth that has served me well with contests in the past, and it is advice that I will give my daughters when they're old enough to worry about things like that. 

It is possible that if you review The Bombmaker's Wife here: (Review the Bombmaker's Wife on Amazon.UK) then it will make the book more visible to the judges at Amazon, but I cannot guarantee that. It's also possible that if it sells a lot of copies, then the book will be more likely to win. But, like I said, I don't know for sure. There is some mention that this contest functions similarly to the Kindle Scout program (but if you don't know what that is, then that means nothing to you.)

What I am doing to spread the word about the book in a way that I hope is a bit less annoying than just running around town and sticking the book in their faces is writing a news blog about the town of Riverside where The Bombmaker's Wife takes place. The articles are written by Davis McKiernan, the best reporter for The Riverside Tribune. So it's guaranteed that the stories will be true and full of facts that concerned citizens have the right to know: not that they care.

Whether or not I win the contest, there is  a chance that Amazon will like the book enough to publish it on one of their imprints. And that is something I would really like to have happen. I don't mind doing all this work on my own, and I will gladly keep doing it this way for as long as I have to, (gratefully my essay collection is still being released by Little Presque Books at some point this year or early next) but having a little help with promotion would be nice. If not, then I'll just have to adapt and keep getting better at it myself until I'm hired to write Pepsi ads. I dream of doing adds for Pork Cracklin's, but that is most likely just a pipe dream.

So the best way that you can help me is by telling people about the blog and by telling people about the book. I am doing everything I can to make finding those things easy as can be. And I will always link back to them on these posts.

See, here are links to all the info that matters.

Buy The Bombmaker's Wife here!

Read the Riverside Tribune here!

Finally, if this stuff is too serious for you, then you might be interested in my comic that I am running on patreon. Dr. Househusband. I had to take a couple weeks off in order to get this book all lined up, but it's coming back with a vengeance: like a two-year-old who hasn't napped all week long.

Feel free to share this info with the entire universe and, if you're feeling generous, consider supporting me on patreon here: 

 

Thanks so much.

The Bombmaker's Wife Available Now

It is done. The Bombmaker's Wife is out on Amazon and can be had for $3.99. You can also read it for free if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription. 

Here's the book jacket business:

When Jordan O’Duffy is sexually assaulted in the Riverside High School locker room two months before graduation, he begins to plot his revenge on the students he believes assaulted him. Zeva, a Bosnian Muslim illegal immigrant who worked with Islamic extremists in the Middle East for years escapes across the Atlantic Ocean and settles in Riverside.

Zeva sees something in Jordan that reminds her of the life she’d once lived before her husband and son were murdered by soldiers during the Bosnian genocide. Can Zeva help Jordan, a boy abandoned by his father and ignored by his mother, to make it through the final two months of high school without turning to violence? Or will the truth about her past be what pushes Jordan to take his father’s guns to school to act on the terrifying thoughts he’s been having?

You can buy the book for kindle here: The Bombmaker's Wife.

The physical edition of the book is under review currently, and once it is made available for purchase, I will let you know. It's priced at $9.99 and if you buy that version I was able to give you the ebook version for free (so you can start reading it immediately if you're not good at waiting for things to show up in the mail.

Thanks for all your support, everyone. 

The Bombmaker's Wife Final Cover

The cover has been finalized, and here it is. Thank you to everyone who emailed and talked to me in person about this. Not a whole lot of time to babble on here since the deadline for the contest is the 19th, and I need to have the physical edition edited and formatted and so on in addition to the ebook. And, as you know, I have these amazing ladies in my life that are my first priorities. So here is the cover, and the description will follow soon. Also, there will be a series of news stories that go along with the book that will start running on a "News Blog" called The Riverside Tribune (named after the newspaper in the town where the majority of The Bombmaker's Wife is set) once the book is released this Friday (so long as everything goes according to plan; does it ever? No. It does not.)

Speaking of the plan, I hear a baby waking up. I'm on my way, Maddie!!!!!!

The Bombmaker's Wife Covers

There's a contest that pays 20k pounds to the winning author, and I have all these books I've written just sitting around, and after seeing the guidelines and thinking about what I want this particular book to do, I have decided to enter. No book can change anything if no one reads it, so it's better for me to attack this way than to sit around hoping that someone will do the work for me. Practicing what I preach is a lot more important to me now than it was before I had children and even if that sounds corny to people, I don't care. There is no time for me to worry about being sentimental and how my work or my method of distributing that work will  be received by academics and people who are afraid of change. You know who you are, so if that sounds like an attack to you, then I guess it is. Although, it is very unlikely anyone "offended" by that will be reading this anyway. 

Part of what I've needed to accomplish while getting The Bombmaker's Wife finalized for publication, is to make a strong cover that communicates the right mood and also entices a reader to click on the book (no clicky, no buy-ey). I've received some guidance from my good friend Eric Smallwood and also a few generous artists out in the world who've shared their knowledge of painting on YouTube...for free.  Robert Marzullo and Jazza, I am mostly talking about you two gentlemen. But there were some random others who I hope to one day track down and thank as well. Only so much time, as you are aware, and each minute spent not earning a dollar is a minute spent accruing student loan debt. Hooray!?

I'll be talking about The Bombmaker's Wife more as I move forward, but I wanted to let everyone who has read my previous fiction know that this book is set in the same town that Rake and Vezchek live in while not deployed (Riverside), but it is a book that is more about America and the people who live in it: legally and not. A better description and a teaser and all that jazz is to come, but for now, here are a few of the cover mock-ups I've done just so people can have a look at something tangible, and so you can see that a person who has no formal training in visual art can create something that compliments his work just by getting up at 4 a.m. every day so that he has time to practice before the daughter train chugs into town, snags him from the station, and then rolls down the line to chaos city.

In short, don't make excuses for yourself; make a plan and adapt. Keep working hard, and find a path that you can travel. There is a path for you even if it's bumpy and foggy and if you find yourself back at the entrance a few hundred times. Keep traveling, and you'll get somewhere, even if the place you wind up is a place you never thought you would be. I don't know who you are or if anyone is actually reading this, but if you are reading this, I believe in you and I believe in the good you can do in the world. So, you know, go out and do it.

Comments are welcome, of course. Anyway, here are four of the comps so far. More on all of this to come soon, and, for those of you who are less interested in "serious" books. I also recently finished my childrens' book My Toys are Your Toys Too which I'll be shopping around as soon as I figure out where to submit it. 

 

 

 

OIF is My Fault lives again

It's been a long time since I've talked about Operation Iraqi Freedom is My Fault, and I don't want to jinx myself by saying this stuff, but it looks like Tim Johnston and I are much closer to making the book a physical thing that will come into the world, hopefully, before world war three begins. 

This is a newer sketch I did based on the troll that appears in the original Red Book, which is a book I wrote when I was fifteen or sixteen. The Red Book is one of the subjects of the essays in Operation Iraqi Freedom is My Fault, and one of these days I'll finish the book of graphic essays to go with it. One book at a time, though.

This is a newer sketch I did based on the troll that appears in the original Red Book, which is a book I wrote when I was fifteen or sixteen. The Red Book is one of the subjects of the essays in Operation Iraqi Freedom is My Fault, and one of these days I'll finish the book of graphic essays to go with it. One book at a time, though.

When I wrote OIF is My Fault, no one had ever dropped the MOAB (but I knew what it was). When I wrote the book, I'd never considered that Donald Trump could ever be president of the U.S. When I wrote the book, I had no children and I never thought I'd be a father to daughters (I sure am glad that I've been that lucky though). When I wrote the book, things were a lot different than they are now, but one thing that's clear to me as I re-read these essays is that I still believe the things I wrote in the book, and I don't know how I could have said them better, and I am lucky that I've had people who believed in me and what I was writing along the way.

I want to thank all the people who've expressed interest in writing reviews and blurbs or just saying that they're excited to read the book. It means a lot to me. It seems like there is always another book being published and everyone is telling you that the book is a "must-read" because that's what advertising is supposed to do. You need to sell books if you want to make money so that you can afford to write more books so that you can sell the new ones and so on and so on. So to anyone who is still able to muster excitement for this book, I am grateful.

Operation Iraqi Freedom is My Fault is much closer to publication than it's ever been, and this has been made possible by Tim Johnston at Little Presque BooksHopefully all the time and effort put into doing this book "the right way" will mean that it is better designed to do its job. 

In order to "celebrate" finishing another round of copy edits on OIF is My Fault, Waiting for the Enemy is free today and tomorrow on Kindle. Just go here to grab a copy: Free Copy of Waiting for the Enemy (expires on May 3rd). I hope everyone has a great week.

Also: here is the trailer for Waiting for the Enemy from a hundred years ago:

A Book About Sharing!

No one has ever done this before. I am the first human to ever consider writing a book that is (at least partially) sharing propaganda. But all good books are partially propaganda (feel free to debate me on this; I won't respond.) 

In all seriousness, this is what most of my "free" time is devoted to while I sit around like a goon, waiting to hear back from agents on book queries. This has taken a lot longer than I expected it would, but since I didn't know (and still don't really know) how to "do art" I had a ton of catching up to do. 

That is mostly what this post is about, I suppose. I wanted to say thank you to a few folks on Youtube whose expertise I found extremely helpful during this process. But first, of course, I need to thank Eric Smallwood for talking to me about this stuff one on one and for doing such a killer cover for Battle Rattle and Other Stories and for being an all-around good guy all the way back when we were in The Dead Cardinals together up until now.

If you are at all interested in learning how to draw or paint or whatever, then you can go to Youtube and get hundreds of hours of tutorials for free. You don't have to go to school to learn. If you are motivated, then you can create your own curriculum, you can buy books (I bought a few), and you can ask people for help. I mean, they're out there, those helpful people. I am not claiming that I'm a professional artist on the same level as any of these folks who I am going to post links to, but what I am saying is that when I started out, I did stuff like this:

Troll from The Red Book which is a sketch based on a troll from the Monstrous Manual.

Troll from The Red Book which is a sketch based on a troll from the Monstrous Manual.

And now I can do stuff like this:

The image of the soldier there isn't done, and I used a reference, and on and on and on. But if you would've asked me a few months ago, I would've told you that it would've been impossible for me to learn how to do anything that looked anything remotely close to that good. All right. Anyway, if you or someone you know is interested in learning about art and you or they don't have the time or money for art school, then here are a few places that can help bridge that gap (or completely eliminate the gap depending on ability and motivation.)

Draw With Jazza! He's kind of my go-to guy.

Proko! This guy has some great free stuff too.

Robert Marzullo! Another site with great tutorials.

All of these guys helped me a ton. And there were some other random videos out there for when I was working on specific things (I have a lot more for animation, and I will talk about that soon enough, I'm sure.) 

The final image of the post is this one from the book in progress. Thanks a bunch to all those people out in the world taking the time to help others to make art. Maybe one of these days I'll get around to sharing some of the stuff I spent over 100k dollars learning in school before I graduated and was hired by my wife as a househusband. 

 

 

Battle Rattle and Other Stories Second 5 star Review

I haven't talked much about this in a while because it's been a year of me talking about this little book, and eventually the talking and talking about the same thing takes its toll. But, as you know, if no one knows you have a book, then no one will read it. So here I go again.

An early version of a character from the short animated movies I am working on.

An early version of a character from the short animated movies I am working on.

Battle Rattle and Other Stories was given a second 5-star review on Amazon near the end of last week, not long after Battle Rattle's free promotion ended. I can't say for certain that it's the last time I will do one of those, but it likely will be. The amount of energy that I have to expend in order to give away something I worked very hard on might not be worth it in the long run. I don't know for sure, but I am leaning away from "working for free" if I can help it. 

Tim Bazzett was the reviewer for Battle Rattle and Other Stories this time, and you can find him and his work here: Rathole Books 

It is always nice to get this kind of recognition from fellow veterans. I know some guys say they don't care what other veterans think about their work, but I do. I mean, of course I am not writing books for veterans specifically, but when other veterans read my work and it inspires them to take time out of their life to tell other people about what I wrote, it means a lot to me. It makes me still feel like I'm part of a unit even though those days are long behind me.

Anyway. Here's a tidbit from the review:

"I'm gonna use that "what he said" thing. Brian Castner calls Brandon Davis Jennings "an intense and masterful story-teller." And by god, he is. This is one of the best damn collections of stories to come out of the current wars yet, and I've read a bunch of them. Put it up there with Phil Klay's NBA-winning REDEPLOYMENT, or Katie Schultz's FLASHES OF WAR. Or the recent novels by Jesse Goolsby (I'D WALK WITH MY FRIENDS IF I COULD FIND THEM) and MATTHEW J. HEFTI (A HARD AND HEAVY THING). And that's just off the top of my head. Don't take my word for it. Read this book. It is an enormous achievement."

There are times when writing feels a lot like climbing a mountain you can never summit. Some of that comes from the fact that you have no idea what people are thinking about your work and some of that comes from waiting for months on end to hear if an agent wants to rep you or a press wants your book or a journal your essay and so on. When I get to read something like this review, it does help to refuel the fire, to remind me that there is a reason that I work on some of this intensely depressing stuff. Because, it is fiction, but it is also true. I'm kind of off the essay wagon at the moment, so I don't want to spend too much time on that topic. I'll just recommend The Things They Carried, and let Tim O'Brien speak for me on that subject. What I will say is that I am grateful for the internet for so many reasons that I can't count them. The internet made this review of my work possible, and the internet makes the sale of my book possible. It also makes this random blog post that I am firing into the abyss possible (and permanent, existing and still going unread for millenia after I'm gone.)

Thanks so much for your kind words, Tim. Here is his full review of my collection: Battle Rattle and Other Stories.

You can order the book directly from amazon, or you can contact me and I can send you a signed copy after a paypal payment. Your choice. Contact me in the comments below if you'd like a signed one. Or, if you know me, you can just email me or call.

Battle Rattle free till Sunday and BT5K!

Hey all,

Welcome to the weekend! Unless you work the weekend, in which case I guess it means less. And, of course, if you have no job, then it's also kind of meaningless (except you get to hang out with your working friends...thank you, Les Claypool.)

So Battle Rattle is still free for the next two days. Please spread the word using whatever method you like.

 

 And, please also, spread the word about the BT5K that my family is running next month in Chicago to help fund brain cancer research.

 

All right. It's Saturday. Here's some more of my concept art for the short films and comics I am working on. That's it. That's all. Family time.

BT5K and Battle Rattle #3 on Free War Book Charts

Okay. Spent 45 minutes writing a post that I lost. Here is the short and better version. Battle Rattle  was downloaded 224 times yesterday, and it stil hasn't made it to the number 1 spot on the free war book chart. It's just now into the top 850 free books overall (there are a lot of free books it turns out).

Please spread the word about the BT5K.

 

And please download a free copy of my best-selling Kindle Single Battle Rattle

Battle Rattle Free for four days and BT5K!

As I head into all this new work, I wanted to take this chance to give anyone who is thinking about reading my kindle singles a chance to do so...for free. Battle Rattle is free from today (March 30th) until this Sunday.

The book has moved out of prime reading where it was free for Amazon Prime members (and I got paid a little bit to make it happen, thankfully), but now it is free to anyone who has the kindle app for a short time. All you have to do is download the book, and then read it or don't. No one will ask you to write a report. 

The last time I ran a free promo, Waiting for the Enemy made it to number 1 on the free war book chart for amazon, and I'd like to see Battle Rattle (it is #16 as of writing this post) do the same thing. I can't do it on my own, though. So hopefully I can get a little help from people spreading the word on social media and elsewhere. (Thanks to all who already have.)

The other thing that giving my book away is promoting is the BT5K run for brain cancer awareness that my family and I do each year. We started this back when Sharon, my wife's mother (and a great friend of mine) was diagnosed with a glioblastoma while Tina and I were at the Macha Mission Hospital in Zambia. Sharon wasn't given long to live, but she did everything she could, recovered from multiple brain surgeries, and spent a lot hours with friends and family laughing around the dining room table, and she never stopped having the sense of humor and love of life that made friendship with her instantaneous.

Here is the shirt that Nelle (one of my biggest fans and my sister-in-law) and I designed for this year's run:

 

I know that most of the people I'm friends with don't have money falling out their ears, so it isn't necessarily you I'm asking for donations from. I am, however, hoping that some of you might know a few people out there in the world who have a little more than they need and who might be interested in helping an organization that is making real progress in the fight against cancer. There are always people holding their hands out, and I know not everyone can help fight for every cause. But we can choose to fight for some or one, and when we do that, our example inspires others to do the same for causes that we may not even know about.

So, in short, have my best-selling book for free, tell people to get it for free, and, while you're doing it, see if they might be interested in tossing a few coins into the bucket to beat cancer so that some folks in the future may not have to lose someone they love to a disease that we can likely cure. You can donate or copy this link and share it wherever you like: Brandon's BT5K Page

Also, if you'd prefer to donate to someone else on my team (or a complete stranger), please do so. I'm not trying to win a donation prize. I just want to do all I can to try and help. It's not much, but sometimes all we can do is hold out our hand and hope that someone grabs it.

 

Dr. Househusband

Hey all.

So this blog has become what I figured it would have to be one day. I am going to be writing about what I am working on, and I'll write about what I'm reading, and as things progress with books (in whatever form I am making them), this will be where that news shows up.

Right now, as my queries float in cyber space, waiting to hear back about my newest work of fiction The Bombmaker's Wife, I am building my comic series about Dr. Househusband. You can see all the comics so far on my patreon page here: Dr. Househusband. 

I'll be sending out an official launch email soon (sorry if you hate email blasts). But for now I am still trying to get the videos and stuff shot so that people who visit the page can see that I am an actual person and not just a Russian robot. 

To everyone who has supported the comic so far (in any way at all) thank you so much. It means a lot to me. There will be much more to come with this character and his family. So anybody who is looking for something from me that is not about PTSD or war or anxiety and depression, this will be the way to get it. As much as I like sitting around and thinking about all the horrible things going on in the world all the time, it does wear on me (I wrote three books about it already this year, so I need a break). Hopefully this comic strip, the animations, and all the silliness that goes along with those things will help bring some people a little joy when they need a break from what seems like nothing but bad news all the time.

Here's a single panel from the comic that I hope you'll enjoy. If you like it, please head over to my patreon page and subscribe. You don't have to spend any money. Just a follow is a huge deal. Thanks for your time.

Dr. Househusband has arrived on Patreon

Hello everyone. 

This has been a crazy couple of years, (books with amazon and audible and an anthology I did with my buddy Eric Smallwood), and I don't think things will get any less hectic because of the real awesome achievements that Tina and I have made: keeping two little girls alive and healthy. But knowing that things are going to stay hectic hasn't stopped me from working; the world doesn't stop spinning just because you're a parent, even if it does seem like it's spinning away from you on the hardest nights.

So the update here is that I am still hard at work trying to sell my most recently finished novel The Bombmaker's Wife and I am working on another novel about Derrick Vezchek and Rake and all the characters in Waiting for the Enemy and Battle Rattleand High Desert Rats.

But like humans are supposed to do, I am adapting to the stimuli around me. In order to keep on making art (assuming you consider comics and cartoons art) while I also try to sell art (literature and children's books alike) to publishers, I have decided to make a comic strip about a househusband with a wife and two daughters. I have no idea where the idea for this comic came from....

The comic is Dr. Househusband, and you can find out more about the comic on Patreon. You do not have to give me anything to read the comic. If you want to shell out a buck or two, I will gladly take it. But I don't want anyone to think that I expect them to give me money for this. 

There are goals and patron tiers and all kinds of stuff that you can read more about on the page, and the comics are going up already. I wish I could say that there'd be a new one every Sunday, but I have two little girls under two and a lot of other stuff going on that will likely make that kind of a schedule impossible to keep up. Maybe, though. 

If you have any interest at all in reading short, goofy comics about a dopey dad or if you have any interest at all in helping me out, then please share this with your friends and family. I appreciate any and all help in whatever form that help takes. 

Click the button below to see the Patreon Page and the rewards and goals and, of course, the comic.

One goal on the Patreon page that you can see is to reach an amount of $450. This amount is not something I believe I'll hit for a long time. But the money would go to me paying the fee to list my first book, Battle Rattle and Other Stories on Netgalley. That's not a small amount of cash, but supposedly getting your book up at Netgalley helps you get more reviews and get more readers and exposure and, ultimately, hopefully it'll get more people to read some stories about characters who represent a piece of America that I care deeply about. 

Okay, okay. I know. I was gone for a long time. I may go back underwater for a while again. But I wanted to let everyone know that I am so thankful for all the help, the reviews, the kind words in texts and emails, the pictures, the requests for signed copies and so on. There would be no reason to do any of this if it wasn't for you all. Thanks a million times. 

Brandon

Goodreads Giveaway Copies in the Mail

After a hectic holiday season (and the birth of my second daughter), things have finally settled down a little. Although my days now start at 4 a.m. instead of five,  I am excited to keep moving forward. The ten winners of the Goodreads giveaway will be getting their signed copies delivered very soon. Thanks again to everyone who wished me a happy birthday. It was a great one, spent with my parents and the most important women in my life. Two beers was enough for this guy.

Happy New Year.

Waiting for the Enemy Teaser

If it hasn't been obvious, I've been working on animations recently because there is a lot of lag time between writing a story, revising a story, and then waiting to hear if someone out there in the publishing world is interested in publishing your story (or if an agent is interested in representing you and your story...which is really just the beginning of another period of waiting around.) I used to let this get me down and drive me a little bit crazy, using booze and video games to distract myself. That, I must say, was not very effective. 

So I'm posting this little ditty to start making it clear that my youtube channel is up, and that it will, eventually, have more on it. Right now there isn't much, but perhaps any of you who are looking for an easy way to show someone what Waiting for the Enemy  is about, then this little teaser with a link to the page on my website might be easier. 

Here is the teaser: Waiting for the Enemy

I want to thank everyone this year who has taken the time out of their schedules to review any of my books or to tell people about them (Good and bad reviews: seriously). This has been the most productive and successful year for me so far as an author, and that is all due to the help and support of friends and family. 

I hope everyone has a great end to the year and that you enter 2017 energized and ready to tackle whatever challenges that present themselves.
