The High Water trilogy is complete

Wow! It’s been a few years of putting this together, and now we’re complete. It feels good.

HIGH WATER, PART 3: HANG EM HIGH!

highwater3.jpg

This series started with an idea: what would a bunch of kung fu loving stoners do in a zombie apocalypse?

By the time I got to the third novel, there were Amish zealots, ancient conspiracies, villains becoming heroes, and heroes losing their innocence. Zombies became the most mundane part. The characters came to life in my mind. It became a story of friendship, love, and the mutual adoration of a substance that makes life a little better.

This was the series where I really found my writing chops. The people in the story went from one dimensional characters with funny one liners in High Water, to people struggling with real adversity in High Water: Low Point, to people struggling with the end of the world in Hang ‘Em High.

I’ve moved on to other book series at this point, but High Water will always be the story that launched my foray into literature. Zombie novels are a dime a dozen, but I think I made something special, and I’ll always be proud of it.

Thanks for your support, as always!

Weird Weed is live! Strange stoner stories

WEIRD WEED

Weird_Weed_Cover_for_Kindle

Here’s a project I’ve been working on for awhile. Starting with a few short stories of my own, Weird Weed became a collaborative project between myself, Mara K Eton and Tyler Haas.

If you’ve been reading the blog, you probably know by now that both are writing in this venerated little medium we call Pot Fiction. Tyler draws, Mara writes, and the both of them have strong lungs, it suffices to say.

Inside Weird Weed, you’ll find short stories about 19th century Jamaica, space travel, stoned animals, horror, love and loss, love found, weird sickos and lunatics, beloved friends and generally a lot of weed smoke. Seriously, the ganja drips off this book.

One unfortunate thing I found with some of

these stories is that they aren’t publishable. In fact, I’ve gotten some really disheartening letters back from magazine editors.

Literally: “This will promote drug use”.

Yeah, no shit.

Call it sour grapes, but I think that this is what self publishing is all about: sharing things without a middleman.

If you stay tuned, we’ll have a 4/20 sale where you can pick it up at a discount.

Thanks for all your support.

[Announcement] High Water now in Paperback

Greetings readers!

I’ve been very busy writing instead of blogging, because if I have time for one, I will focus on the writing.

In my spare time, I’ve been finishing up the PAPERBACK VERSION of High Water.

http://www.amazon.com/High-Water-1-R-W-Tucker/dp/1502565927/

This is incredibly exciting. I’m selling it for about as cheap as I can possibly make it. Part 2, High Water: Low Point, will be available in paperback very soon as well.

At the same time, I’ve also finished a draft of Part 3, which should be available as an ebook and a paper copy by the end of the year.

Thanks for your support, and hope to see your (honest) review on Amazon soon.

Review: The Staples Slide Calculator

Web link: http://www.staples.com/Staples-Slide-Calculator/product_149984

My pipe sits by as I write this, combusted about halfway. I need to write about this infernal machine before I continue my well-deserved leisure.

As the reader might imagine, the calculator finds itself anachronistic in an age of pocket microprocessing. Calculators are the slide rule of my generation. My youth involved achingly beautiful spring days spent inside, listening to the arithmetic teacher prophesying situations where no calculator could be found: “Tuck, you won’t always have a calculator in your pocket!” These pedagogues were wrong. I have that and more! I can alienate my family in a few swift clicks!Staples Slide Calculator

Forced to ask a clerk where I could find one, I delved into a forgotten corner of the store. “Staples Slide Calculator,” the packaging said, boasting an alarm clock feature above and beyond its use as a calculating device. Cool, right? Sporting the lowest price among the five or six options  geared toward accountants and number-crunches, my choice cost me roughly four dollars. A bargain, I thought.

The adhesive on the package was weak, like the device sat on the shelf until the glue broke down to its component parts. How long? Years, likely. Pleasantly, the battery, of the sort powering watches, was still live.

At home, I reclined in my office chair, unfolding the directions. Wait, directions? Really? Most alarm clocks are fairly intuitive. Calculators are self explanatory. Yet as I fiddled with the device, I realized why the directions were necessary. I learned design from the best, and this device was badly designed.

Beep. Beep. Beep.

[Announcement] High Water Audiobook, narrated by Jeff Hays

You know, it’s always awesome to see someone truly committed to their work.

Jeff Hays has been extremely busy lately. I first heard him narrate Dead of Night, by MR Forbes, among other works, and I was blown away at the performance. He’s got this sarcastic lilt to his voice that lends an edge to the author’s portrayal of people and situations.

I’m happy to say that Jeff is going to narrate my kung fu/zombie/stoner book, and furthermore, turn it into a all out audio drama. Here’s a sample he produced for me just the other day:

How dope is that chapter? I’m pumped.

Please give it a listen and support him. If you’re into audiobooks at all, you’re going to see this guy going places. His portfolio exploded over the past year.
