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!

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!

[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.

High Water: A Suggested Soundtrack

My book HIGH WATER is a cannabis-infused thriller about a group of pothead martial artists trapped in an infested waterpark during a terrifying dubstep concert.

Here’s the suggested soundtrack in a youtube playlist for your convenience. Even if you’re not a reader, it would make a great workout mix.

Here’s the link to the book if you’ve never read it before:

Interview: R.D. Ronald, author of The Elephant Tree and The Zombie Room

This is the first interview we’ve done here on Pot Fiction, and it’s pretty damn exciting!

rdronaldR.D. Ronald, an up and coming crime novelist, is the author of The Elephant Tree and The Zombie Room. We reviewed The Elephant Tree here. It’s a great read. When RD Ronald suggested that we talk some more, Pot Fiction jumped at the opportunity!

You can find R.D. Ronald on Twitter @RDRonaldauthor, Goodreads, Facebook, and Google+.

RW Tucker, Pot Fiction: You’ve mentioned that your own personal experiences influenced your writing. Many people turn their back on their past lives. Within the bounds of what you are comfortable talking about, of course, what made you want to put those experiences to paper?

R.D. Ronald: When I first went to prison I found the expected assortment of horrible individuals that anyone would expect to be in there. What did surprise me, though, were the number of decent people that had been the victim of horrendous circumstances they either reacted to, or took the only option left open to them. While I was inside I read and read and read, as you would expect, but while working my way through numbers of crime thrillers I began to find the plots somewhat tedious and predictable, and in no way reflective of the people I was surrounded by who had, and still were, living out their very own crime thrillers. I decided to put some ideas down on paper, much of it fiction, some very altered experiences I had lived through or heard of, and let it begin to take shape. I wanted the criminality to be reflected in as open a way as I could without vilifying or glamorising the experience. I had no idea how the readers would eventually take this on board, but I was writing the type of book I wanted to read, not seeking out commercial success by trying to please everyone. Through social media rather than backing from a big publisher I have been able to connect with like-minded souls and luckily for me they seem to love it, which has enabled me to carry on exploring my passion for writing.
