Upcoming Events!

A Taste Of Home is finally here! I will be having a signing event at The Wind, The Willow bookstore in downtown Greenville, Texas on Saturday September 22nd, 2018. I will also be doing a public reading of the first chapter at The Texan Theater in Greenville on September 19th, 2018 at 5pm! Copies will be limited so contact me here or on any of my social media pages to reserve one.

It begins…

As I write this, representatives from Death’s Head Press and some of my fellow authors are rubbing elbows with the finest (and being offered leftover Chinese food from drunken literary celebrities) at KillerCon in Austin! Our upcoming anthology “…And Hell Followed” is getting noticed and I personally can’t wait to unleash the apocalypse on the world! (Ooops! I think I just plagiarized that line from Donald Trump’s inauguration speech!). Every story begins with that all important first handful of words. It sets the tone and gets the reader’s mind to racing, mouth to watering, hands to fondling…whatever their preference may be. So, as a Friday morning treat, I would like to offer you the first words to my short story in the “…And Hell Followed” anthology titled “Hell Paso”. Enjoy.

(clearing my virtual throat)

I can’t.

I would love to…but I can’t. I’m under contract to keep a tight lid on this project. There’s a pretty impressive list of horror writers joining me on this journey and I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone! Just check out this list of contributors! (So far…)

  • Wrath James White
  • Sam West
  • The Sisters of Slaughter
  • Jeff Strand
  • K Trap Jones
  • Michael Bray
  • C Derick Miller
  • Christine Morgan
  • PC3
  • Jackson Stone
  • John Wayne Comunale
  • Hyäne Sawbones

Right now, there are some well known authors and KillerCon wanting to join our ranks in this anthology! The debut book by Death’s Head Press is going to be a big one! The anthology’s theme is the Book of Revelation. What if the prophecies of Revelation hit today? What sort of craziness and evil would ensue? With this list of excellent authors contributing, its sure to be a Hell of a read!

Stay tuned for updates with “…And Hell Followed” with Death’s Head Press!

Exit Wounds by C. Derick Miller

For the record, I don’t know why I write what I write. Stephen King is not a murderer, JK Rowling is not a wizard, and I am not suicidal. I was just feeling a little dark, I got this out of my system, and now I feel better. Some people cry, some people cut themselves, I write. Understand?

Exit Wounds by C. Derick Miller

8.23.18

I will always keep it near me

Just in case they spring the trap

And as long as it is present

I will never take the rap

It’s my one and only exit

It’s my portal to the end

When it’s all too much to handle

When I’ve lost my dearest friend

It can take away my sorrows

And erase what I’ve done wrong

When I’ve wrote my closing sentence

When I’ve sung my final song

I won’t do it for attention

I won’t mean to make you cry

It’s the essence of my nature

Because poets live to die

I will finally have my answers

That I’ve sought for many years

I will travel that great darkness

I will swallow all my fears

As I inhale brave and deeply

Realized curse of destiny

I forgot to buy the ammo

Nothing changes, even me

 

Author John Scura Passes Away

Rest in peace to my colleague John Scura

Taken from an email by our publisher “Black Rose Writing”.

“It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of one of our bestselling authors, John Scura (Battle Hymn: Revelations of the Sinister Plan for a New World Order). His book has stayed amongst our top sellers since 2011 and remains a current topic today with politics, freedom, and government.

I want to personally thank all of our fellow authors who helped with the project along the way. And of course, everyone who’s read this frightening, but truthful, book.

John Scura was a journalist, author, and Emmy-nominated television writer-producer. He produced TV programs for Merv Griffin, Joan Rivers, Arsenio Hall, Pat Sajak, Vicki Lawrence and Tom Snyder. In addition to Battle Hymn, he was the author of the novel,8b, and the non-fiction memoir, Recon Trooper. He passed away yesterday, August 22nd.”

Sincerely,
Reagan Rothe
Owner / Black Rose Writing

His novel, Battle Hymn, will be a .99 title on Amazon Kindle temporarily.

This book presents frightening, but truthful, facts that will shake many of your deepest beliefs to the core. A dark plan, put into place centuries ago, has come to fruition. Consider Battle Hymn your wake-up call… Painstakingly researched through hundreds of sources and interviews, Battle Hymn rips the cover off the invisible government that controls our leaders and soon, our very lives. Composed of just a few hundred powerful but unelected people, this elite cadre seeks to create a one-world government to complete its already advanced globalist plans to end the sovereignty of all nations–including the United States. Its ultimate goal is complete control through a New-World Order where a socialist dictatorship ensures that every citizen is tagged, mollified and productive.
