Interview with Doug Hocking/ TLC Open Boat Blog Tour

Welcome to the TLC Boat Blog Tour! Today’s special guest is _Doug Hocking_______________

 

Hi ___Doug Hocking_________________  tell us what you genre you wrote for your current book

Westerns. I could say my heroes have always been cowboys, but that’s not quite right. I’ve always believed in American heroes. In the 1960s and 1970s there was a move afoot to smash and vilify our heroes. That sort of thing will crush our nation and our souls. Massacre at Point of Rocks recognizes Kit Carson as a hero, not as the legendary giant he became for a while, but as the real man who performed heroic acts.

What made you choose to write this genre?

Lack of commercial sense. If I’d just wanted commercial success, I’d have written mysteries. But it would have been hard to locate real heroes. I’m trained as an historian, historical archaeologist and ethnographer. I love history and I know we had many real heroes who are now forgotten. We need them. We need to bring them back. I’m also a retired Armored Cavalry officer. Servicemen know and believe in something larger and more important than themselves. Our young soldiers need heroes they can believe in. They’re our true hope for the future, not the lazy freeloaders in Occupy Anything.Our young people need real heroes not bank robbers and terrorists or the soulless creatures in Tarantino movies. I don’t write shoot-‘em-ups. I write about real people and real events.

Tell our audience what your book is about

It’s about coming to grips with who our heroes and fathers are.

Massacre at Point of Rocks is the gripping tale of historic events along the Santa Fe Trail in 1849. James White took his family ahead of the slow moving caravan to rush his wife and child to safety and comfort in Santa Fe. Met at Point of Rocks by Jicarilla Apaches, James was soon dead and his wife and child taken. He had powerful friends and she was the only white woman in New Mexico. The affair could not be ignored and soon bounty hunters, dragoon cavalry and militia were on the trail hunting for the woman and her child. Persuaded to guide the army, Kit Carson found himself and his friends embroiled in a war not of his choosing. The tale culminates in battle and perilous escape from the Llano Estacado.

The story follows the lives of Apaches, Mexicans, mountain men, teamsters and Santa Fe merchants. The taste, smell and look of New Mexico in 1849 comes alive as the author explores mountains, deserts and the lives of those who inhabit them. Sensitive to the nuances of culture the saga scales peaks where there is danger and action at every turn.

Written for adults Massacre at Point of Rocks is about growing up and coming to grips with our heroes and fathers and will be of interest to young adults and those wishing to learn more about New Mexico and her history and cultures.  The Santa Fe Trail comes to life.

Who’s your favorite character in your book and why?

That’s a tough one. PeregrinoRojo is unpredictable, a man who is comfortable sliding between cultures but at the same time knows the costs. Roque Vigil is a man proud of his culture but willing to go well beyond its limitations without fear. Kit Carson, in the book and in real life, reminds me of my father. They had a lot in common, simple men with an evil temper when confronted with injustice, both Masons with a similar approach to God and perhaps some similar disabilities, both thrust into a society somewhat above their humble origins.

Do you have a favorite scene? If so what and where is it?

Many of the best written scenes, the most evocative, involve deep tragedy so it’s difficult to call them favorites. The gun duel between Roque and Sgt. O’Malley is a lot of fun. It was written to highlight the weaknesses of one of the weapons involved and to capture something of Roque’s sense of humor. “Go ahead, sergeant. I give you first shot. Shoot the apple off my head.”

Do you have any other books that you’d like to talk about?

Outlaws and Lawmen, the anthology from La Frontera, contains my short story “Marshal of Arizona.” It’s very loosely based on a real incident and a real problem in 1850s Arizona. What do you do when the powers that be won’t allow law, courts or lawmen? Dead or Alive, due out in June 2013, contains “The Bounty.” A friend said he wanted to be in a story so I set him up as wanted dead or alive for a series of heinous murders pursued by Roque Vigil from my novel and Clay I-never-killed-a-man-who-didn’t-need-it Allison.

Do you have any Facebook pages that you’d like people to like?

Doug Hocking, writer, is my business page on Facebook. You can link to it from my website www.doughocking.com otherwise you’re apt to get tangled up with my personal page. The business page has lots of photos and notes about where I’ve been, what I’m doing, my travels and appearances. Mostly, there are some great scenic shots and shots of ghost towns, old forts and other sites of interest. As an historical archaeologist, I’m happy anywhere there are great foundations and a thick deposit of old trash. I also do a Page for the Bisbee Corral of the Westerners. If you want to know what’s happening in southern Arizona and what to visit, this is the place to look.

Do you have a blog/website to visit?

Yes, www.doughocking.com. There are photos of many of the places in my stories, a store where you can buy my books, the back chapters of my serial novel Devil on the Loose appearing in the Tombstone Times, background information on the Southwest Mysteries that appear in the upcoming novel Chaco Canyon, maps and soon, perhaps, recipes. My wife says the descriptions of meals in my books always make her hungry.

Where can we find your books to purchase?

My store at www.doughocking.com has them and I send them out inscribed. I’m also on Amazon. Bookstores in the southwest are starting to carry them but it takes time to get around, so my website is the best bet.

Are you on Twitter?

I avoid it. I was, but soon all sorts of strange women of low morals started following me. What can I say? I’m a ruggedly handsome author like Richard Castle in Castle. So I had to quit. Facebook lets me control my friends, though anyone who is reading my work is welcome to Like me.

Thank you very much for being taking a cruise in our TLC Boat Blog and we look forward seeing more from you.

Interview with Judith White/ TLC Boat Blog Tour

Welcome to the TLC Boat Blog Tour! Today’s special guest is       Judith White

 

Hi ______Judith/Judy______________________ tell us what you genre you wrote for your current book

My current book is “Sins of the Father: The Case Files of Sam Flanagan”.  I write detective fiction.

 

 

What made you choose to write this genre?

As a child, my mother would purchase from the grocery store once a week, a Nancy Drew book for me. I loved Nancy and her friends and the mysteries they found themselves entangled in.  From there, I graduated to Agatha Christie mysteries.  I’ve always been enthralled with the mystery genre. I love a good whodunit!  At this point in time, it’s the only genre I feel comfortable writing. I wouldn’t know what to do with the people in a romance novel…lol.

 

Tell our audience what your book is about

In Sins of the Father, it’s nearing Easter 1943 in Detroit.  On the Tuesday before the holiday, Sam runs into his childhood friend, Johnny Delbeck, at a jazz club in the city.  Johnny and his wife, Grace, took in her sister’s daughter, Myrna Lou, who was having trouble at home with her own mother and stepfather.  Grace feels being in a new environment, the seventeen-year-old girl might settle down and start behaving herself.  She might just turn her life around with Grace getting her into a new school and involved in the church youth group.  The day before, Johnny and Grace made a quick trip to the pharmacy, leaving Myrna Lou sitting on the front steps of their home with their youngest daughter, Bonnie, who is only five.  When they come back, Myrna Lou is no where to be found.  Did she run away? Where did she go?  What’s happened to her?  Johnny hires Sam to find out and bring her home in time for the Easter Sunday holiday.

 

Who’s your favorite character in your book and why?

Now that’s a hard one at this point.  Sins of the Father is my second story in the Sam Flanagan series.  I obviously love Sam.  He will be turning 40 in the summer, and he’s a bit anxious at that.  Having been married only four years and divorced because his young wife left him, having visions of appearing on the Silver Screen, he’s been living for the last ten years with his paternal grandmother, Ruby Flanagan, who is batty at times.  Sam isn’t your average hard-boiled private detective; he’s sensitive at times, and he’s pretty easy going.  There are moments when he questions why he went into the field he’s gone into.  He doesn’t like viewing dead bodies.  He doesn’t enjoy seeing others pain.  I also love ‘Gran’.  She’s eighty-two and quite healthy at her age, but she’s batty, as I’ve said, and yells into the telephone.  She’s endearing.  Gran has a crotchety best friend, who is six years her junior…Helen Foster.  I like her, too.  She’s usually trying to get under Sam’s skin; why, he doesn’t really know.

 

Do you have a favorite scene? If so what and where is it?

There’s more than one, but what comes to mind is a small scenario, actually.  Sam is sitting in the WhiteCastle hamburger joint in Dearborn, Michigan, hoping to talk to some of the teens who frequent the place after school.  He’s just put up a flyer on the cash register, offering a reward for any information leading to the whereabouts of Myrna Lou Stevic.  He looks on as three younger girls, about the age of thirteen, enter, stop and read the flyer.  One of the girls suddenly reaches out, tearing the flyer down and ripping it into shreds.  As they go to move past him, he questions her about her actions.  The two girls she’s with tell her she doesn’t have to answer to him; it’s none of his business.  Sam tells them that isn’t exactly true; he’s Detective Flanagan.  Their eyes widen and the two girls skedaddle off to a stool far away from Sam and this girl, Kay Dombrano, leaving their friend alone to deal with this situation.  Believing he’s with the Dearborn Police Department, Kay is close to tears as she answers his questions.  It was actually Marion Dombrano whom Sam intended to question, Kay’s older sister and friend of Myrna Lou.  So, when he visits the Dombrano home the next day, he pulls up to the curb opposite the house as the young Kay comes riding up on her bike.  She notices the car that has just parked across from her house and stops to look.  When she realizes it’s the detective from yesterday, she hops off her bike, letting it fall to the ground, and runs into her backyard, disappearing from view.  Sam has to laugh because the poor kid probably believes he’s there to arrest her.  Even now, as I envision this again, I’m laughing.

 

Do you have any other books that you’d like to talk about?

Yes, my debut novel is called: “A Method to Madness: The Case Files of Sam Flanagan”.  In that one, Chicago socialite Phyllis Killburn travels to Detroit to hire Sam to follow her husband because she believes he’s stepping out with another woman and she wants to find out what his involvement with the US military is.  He’s keeping secrets and she’s willing to pay big bucks to find out what those secrets are.

 

Do you have any Facebook pages that you’d like people to like?

Yes, my facebook author page contains book information, tidbits of history, celebrity and music information of the time period…just a fun page.   https://www.facebook.com/SamFlanaganmysteries

 

Do you have a blog/website to visit?

I actually don’t at this time, but I’m trying to work on it.  I’m not too computer savvy when it comes to this yet.

 

Where can we find your books to purchase?

You can find my books being offered at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.  They’re available in paperback and Kindle and Nook.  Also, you can find my work at www.worldcastlepublishing.com

 

 

Are you on Twitter?

Space X Science Fiction to Science Fact

Space X-Science Fiction to Science Fact

 

Today we are on the cutting edge of the space age. What used to be science fiction is now becoming science fact as private industry heads to outer space. Space X corporation has now developed the Dragon X rocket which it uses to launch a reusable supply capsule into orbit which docks with the International Space Station to resupply our astronauts.

There are also two new corporations that will soon launch probes to the asteroid belt looking for asteroids to mine. There is a new company based out of Mojave California who will take tourist into orbit and I have also heard of hotel chains that are planning orbiting hotels where you will soon be able to visit. Just imagine, taking your vacation in space. It makes you wonder what the world will be like in fifty or one hundred years. Will we have a base on the moon, or will we send astronauts to Mars? With new technologies come new problems. What will we face in one hundred years? How about two hundred years? Will we still be a free nation?

When you combine this with the current trends in globalism, it starts to get scary. Today we have the European Union where they have combined several nations’ currencies, and taking away national sovereignty. You have free trade agreements and we’ve all heard the term, The New World Order. What if we had colonies on the moon, on Mars and on the moons of Saturn and Jupiter? What if one government ruled all this as well as Earth? The leader would be a very powerful man. Would he be a benevolent ruler, or an evil tyrant? When you take people’s freedom away and make their lives miserable, eventually they fight back. When the terrorist attacked on 9-11 our brave young men and women stepped up to the plate. Right now our brave young men and women in the military are fighting for freedom in Afghanistan, and we just finished a war in Iraqi. Whenever tyrants raise their heads, freedom loving people will be there to chop it off.

My new novel, The Battle for Europa explores this scenario. The Battle for Europa is a tale of revolution in the twenty third Century. Earth and the colonies in the solar system are ruled by The Council of Economic Unions on Earth. The council rules with an iron fist. When Shawn Gallagher, an ice miner on Europa launches a miner’s strike, it is a ruse for rebellion. The ice on the surface of Europa will turn red with blood in The Battle for Europa.

When Shawn, second shift lead man at mining site A on Europa launches his bid for independence, little does he know that it will pit him against his little brother David. A Fleet Marine in the Federal Defense Forces. When Cyrus Bonelli, President of the Council of Economic Unions on Earth, hears of the rebellion on Europa he sends the federal main battle fleet to stop the rebellion. With rebels on Mars wrecking havoc, and the new deep space fleet heading out of the solar system to explore the galaxy, this rebellion on Europa couldn’t have come at a worse time, but Cyrus has little choice. The federal fleet needs the Helium-3 and the colonies on Earth’s moon as well as the colonies on Mars need the water ice that they mine on Europa, so Cyrus launches an attack, later known as The Battle for Europa.

 

The battle for Europa is the first book in a new series known as The Space Corps Chronicles Book, two, the battle for Mars should be out shortly. I envision at least seven or eight books in this series. Click on the links below to order your copy of The Battle for Europa. Also while you’re at it I have some free eBooks you can down load at Amazon.com and Smashwords. They are the first stories in the Cave Man Action Adventure series. You can read the entire series in Tales From The Lost Highway. If you like paranormal stories with a biker twist, you’ll love this book.

I’ll probably never set my foot on Mars or go to outer space, but I can write about it and what it might be like as I explore the galaxy in The Space Corps Chronicles. Feel free to send me an email at davidhdonaghe@yahoo.com or leave a comment and sign up for my blog. Until next time, I’ll keep doing what I do best: reading, writing and riding my motorcycle.

What Would You Do?

What Would You Do?

May 3rd 2012

 

What would you do if you and your significant other were on vacation, taking a trip on your Honda Goldwing and a gang of outlaw bikers ambush you?  They rape and kill your significant other, beat you half to death and put you in a coma for three months.  When you wake up, you can’t even remember your own name.  Most people, after they healed up from their injuries, and regained their memories would greave for their lost loved one, but they would most likely let the law take care of the problem and get on with their life.  Oh, they might harbor feelings of anger toward the people who committed the crime, and they might desire revenge, but they wouldn’t act upon those feelings.

In my new novel, Thunder Road, the main character, Mike McDonald, a Persian Gulf War vet, takes a different path.  After he heals from his injuries and regains his strength, Mike goes on the warpath against the outlaw motorcycle club known as The Lost Souls.  Using, guns, knives and homemade explosives, Mike takes on not only the LA chapter of The Lost Souls Motorcycle club, but also their chapters in Las Vegas, Utah and Idaho.  In Green River Wyoming, Mike hooks up with a friendly bike club known as The Green River Boys and they help him in his war with The Lost Souls.  The final battle takes place at a cabin on a lonely mountain road, known as Thunder Road.

You can order Thunder Road at Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobel or Black Rose Writing.

What would you do if you walked down into the basement of your house and discovered a horde of flesh eating zombies, or maybe a pack of werewolves or vampires?  If you were a character in my short story collection, you might call Mike Monroe, of Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations.  You can order Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations at Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble.  You can also check out the publisher, The Living Dead Press.  Click on the links below to order.

What would you do if one day before going to work, you picked up a good book and after reading a few chapters, you head out the door to go to work, but when you do, you hear a clap of thunder, see a flash of blue light somehow you are teleported into the world of the book you were just reading?  In my science fiction novel, Tale Spinner, Brandon Merryweather is teleported into the land of fiction.  The people there expect him to carry on the tale that the passed author, now deceased, left unfinished.  They call him the new tale spinner.  Will Brandon do what the characters want and finish the tale, or will he be forever lost in the land of fiction?  You can order Tale Spinner at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or Otherworld Publications.  Click on the links below to order.

Here’s the deal.  For each of my novels that you order, Thunder Road, Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations, or Tale Spinner, I will give you a free eBook from my Cave Man Action Adventure series.  You’ll love these paranormal biker fiction tales.  If you order all three of the above-mentioned books, I will give you the first five installments of the Cave Man Action Adventure Series for free.  That’s five eBooks when you purchase my other three novels.  Just email me the receipt from wherever you purchase the books and I will send you the POMO codes, then just go to Smashwords.com and order your free eBooks.

A Bully Beat Down

A Bully Beat Down
Dec 10th 2011
One afternoon, I was picking my daughter up from school and our conversation turned to bullying. As you know, bullying is a big problem in our schools. My daughter said that her teacher told her that, “Violence is never the answer.” Me being the dad that I am had to disagree. Sometimes, violence is the only answer. It took violence to stop Adolf Hitler from taking over the world. It took violence to stop the Japanese after they attacked Pearl Harbor, it took violence to fight alkida after 9-11 and it takes violence to stop a bully on the playground.
I know the teachers tout zero tolerance and they say for your child to tell the teacher when a bully is picking on them, but that rarely works. What works, is when your child musters up his courage and punches the bully in the nose. When I was in school, after you gave a bully a good beat down, he usually wanted to be your friend. The thing is, that bullies in the schoolyard grow up, turn into adults and sometimes, they don’t grow out of their childish ways. They’re still bullies; only as adults, they usually use words instead of fists.
The main character in my science fiction novel, Tale Spinner is a timid young New York Accountant who likes to read. The office bully picks him on at work, but Brandon’s life takes a weird twist when he is teleported into the world of the Western novel he is reading at the time. Brandon finds himself, in Greedy Gulch, an 1880s boomtown. Brandon must learn to survive in a savage new land. The novel’s main character, a cowboy known as The Mojave Kid, takes Brandon under his wing and teaches him how to ride a horse, how to fight and how to shoot. In Greedy Gulch, the town bully won’t leave Brandon alone and Brandon has to give him a Bully Beat Down. Below is an excerpt from Tale Spinner.

At six PM, half drunk, I stumbled my way across the street and pushed my way through the batwing doors of the Last Chance Saloon. I pulled my coat up close trying to hold off the evening chill. A full moon lit the street, and Inside the Last Chance Saloon the air felt much warmer. McCoy had the wood stove going. The usual smells of tobacco smoke, stale alcohol and vomit drifted to me from across the room. Standing in the center of the barroom, I let my eyes grow accustomed to the dim light. Finally, I staggered to the bar.
“What’ll it be my lad?” Standing behind the bar, McCoy gave me a friendly smile.
“Make it a beer,” I said ignoring the cowboys lining the bar and the other patrons sitting at tables through out the room. Molly Brown sashayed up to me, and I caught a trace of her perfume. A sense of arousal penetrated the alcohol haze inside my brain. Molly rubbed my back with the palm of her hand. The touch of her soft hands sent chills down my spine. Something started to rise in my britches.
“You want to go upstairs, lover?” Taking a pull from the beer bottle, I slipped my arm around her.
“Maybe in a little while. I think I’ll have a few beers first.”
“Merryweather!” the bombing voice of Craig Barlow came from down the bar. “You little tin horn I thought I told you to stay away from my gal!”
“You don’t have to fight him,” Molly whispered. She leaned close to me. and her right breast touched my left bicep. Molly tried to hold me back. “He’ll only hurt you bad like the last time.”
“I’ve got it to do,” I said pulling away from Molly’s grasp. Sliding the barstool back, I rose to my feet and turned around. Barlow stood facing me.
“Get ‘em Craig!” one of Barlow’s buddies yelled.
“You don’t have the Kid here to protect you now, Tin Horn! Get your yellow ass out of here and stop bothering my gal!” Barlow stepped forward poking his finger into my chest.
“I’ll be your huckleberry,” I said bringing up my fist. Barlow threw a wild haymaker at my head. I blocked it with my left hand and hit him with a hard jab to his face. It snapped his head back. Barlow lunged forward trying to pin me against the bar. Taking a boxer’s stance, I hit him with a left and a right to his wind. Barlow let out a few startled grunts. His body rose up into the air when I hammered him with my fist. Next, I went to work on his kidneys and then hit him hard in the chest. My fist sank in with every blow. I followed up with a quick uppercut and polished off the three-punch combination ending with a left hook. Barlow hit the floor. Silence whispered through the saloon. Everyone stared in awe.
“Get up you mangy dog!” I yelled with my fist raised. Barlow stumbled to his feet. Hammering him with sledgehammer hard blows, I drove him across the saloon. Barlow threw a punch that grazed the side of my head and I hit him with a straight right that splattered his nose against his face. Blood hit the front of my shirt and Barlow flew through the air landing on a table, splintering it to match wood. The cowboys sitting at the table dived for cover. “Get up you coward!”
Barlow staggered to his feet. Oblivious to the saloon’s patrons watching the battle, I pressed the attack forward. My vision narrowed to a dark tunnel with Craig Barlow at the center. Barlow flew backward toward the batwing doors and I hammered him with punches all the way. At the doorway to the saloon, I hit him with a hard right hand fist. Barlow flew through the batwing doors and landed on his face in the street. He tried to rise to his knees, but I hammered him with blow after blow, beating him down in the dirt. Grabbing Barlow by the back of his shirt, I drug him to the horse trough. My breathing came out in wheezy huffs and puffs. I pushed his head under the water and held him there for a few seconds. When I let him up, Barlow sputtered, coughing up water and rose to a sitting position. Blood dripped from his nose.
“If you ever bother me, or call me a tin horn one more time, I’ll kill you!”
Barlow raised his hands into the air. “I won’t. Please don’t hit me no more, Mr. Merryweather.”
Turning on my heels, I stumbled across the boardwalk making my way through the crowd.

So when your child comes home from school and tells you about the playground bully, maybe it’s time for a Bully Beat Down. As always, I welcome everyone’s opinions and comments. If you’d like to read Tale Spinner click on the link below.

Until next time,
David Donaghe

The Young Woman In The Short Skirt.

I published this on my Blogspot page and I thought I would post it here as well

The young women in the short skirt.
Nov 10th 2011

I just finished reading John Locke’s book, How I sold 1 Million eBooks in 5 Months! If you are serious about being an author and selling books, you need to read this book. I downloaded it on my kindle for only $2.99. Right away, I saw where I could improve my marketing for my two books, Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations, a collection of zombie, werewolf and vampire stories, and Tale Spinner, a science fiction novel. In John’s book he gave three examples of blog post that he made which helped him gain sales on Amazon.com. In the first one, he told a story about an incident in a grocery store parking lot where a run away shopping cart threatened to strike a young woman that was putting groceries in her trunk. He yelled for her to watch out and then went running after the cart, only to have the woman he tried to save chew him out and call him bad names. Sometimes even heroes have a bad day. This story reminded me of an incident that happened to me in a grocery store parking lot.

As I was walking across the parking lot toward my car, an extremely attractive young woman in a short, short skirt was walking toward me from the opposite direction. If her skirt had been any shorter, it would have been illegal. A man strolled along a few paces behind her, and I saw him bend over sideways trying to get a peek under the young woman’s skirt. I thought about telling her that some pervert was behind her trying to look up her skirt, but when I past her, I just smiled and said, “Hi.”
I’m throwing this question out to all the guys out there. What kind of guy are you? Would you have bent over sideways trying to get a peek at her panties, or would you have played it cool and admired the view from behind? Are you the kind of guy whose eyes linger too long on a woman’s chest, or legs? Mike Monroe is the main character in my book, Monroe’s Paranormal Investigations and he is what some might call a chauvinistic pig. He’s not ashamed of it, he embraces it. His partner, Roxanne Delaney, he calls her Roxy, is an ultra-hot blonde with big breasts. She wears her clothes tight, her shirts low cut, and she never wears a bra. Mike can’t keep his hands off her sexy legs and his eyes linger on her chest. When Roxy catches him staring she might say, “What are you looking at Pervert?” Mike just grins and says, “Only you, darling. Only you.”
To you women out there, what kind of woman are you? Do you wear your clothes tight and revealing? How does it make you feel when a guy’s eyes linger too long on your chest or you legs, or when he gives you the once over and you know he’s imaging what you might look like naked? Does it embarrass you and make you angry, or do you enjoy the attention? There are no wrong answers here. I would just like to hear some opinions. Please leave a comment and sign up for my email list.
I’m not quite as bold as Mike Monroe is. If I had been the guy strolling along behind this woman, I probably wouldn’t have bent over and tried to sneak a peek, but I might have said a silent prayer hoping for a strong gust of wind.

If you get a chance, down load, The Devil’s Punch Bowl, book II in the Cave Man Action Adventure series.

Until next time,
David Donaghe.
