Dear Readers, I’m Going to Give You Something Special

Dear Readers,

Today is Wednesday, January 25th, and it’s been a long week.  Not long in a way that’s abnormal or anything like that.  It’s been the usual: work, parenting, work, writing, work, and more work.  Shit like that.  But in this week’s blog, I just wanted you to know that I’m working my ass off over here on this tiny island of Guam.  It ain’t a cakewalk doing what I’m doing.  The stress of being active duty military and trying to become a full-time author is hard enough on its own, but I’m trying to be the best at something, and that’s a whole different challenge in itself.

I’m not complaining, though.  I just want you to know that I’m putting in work to bring you something out of this world.  My current WIP is the biggest challenge I’ve faced since I first started writing, and each and every chapter I’ve written for Madman so far has been a challenge.  This character is just so far from anything I’ve ever written before, and the state of mind I have to be in to write in his POV is so strange it’s almost scary to even me.  Seriously, just wait until you read the shit this guy says and does!  Honestly, Solomon King makes me nervous and I’m the fucking author!  But for real; how great of a sign is that?  Have you ever heard of a character so insane and off the wall and unpredictable that he scares his creator?  Well, Solomon is that character.  He’s special, I’m telling you.

So, I just wanted to take the time out to tell you that I know you’re hungry for something great.  Not just from me, but in general.  You’re always looking for your next dose of insane literature that blows your goddamn socks off.  Well I’m here to tell you, this is it.  What Isabel Lucero and I are doing is that next big thing.  So even if I have to feel like I need to be checked into a mental institution by the time I’m done writing the books in this series, it’ll all be worth it… as long as your socks are blown the fuck off! #TheMadmanCometh

Holy freaking shit!  How dope is this book so far?!  I mean, seriously, this book is crazy!  Have you read this?! So this is about two teenage girls who are pregnant.  Seems totally normal right?  Well it’s not!  Because both of the girls are virgins!  Yeah!  Ready for some extra craziness on top?  One of them is giving birth to the son of God, and the other to the son of Satan.  But which is which?
Oh Snap!!

This story has been a thrill right from the jump, and I love James Patterson!  He is by far my favorite author, and he does not disappoint with Cradle and All.
Hey, maybe one day I’ll be writing “The World’s #1 Bestselling Author” on all of my books.
Don’t judge me!  I’m allowed to dream.

YOURS TRULY,

Inside the Mind of a Madman

15781095_1845685732342234_5226471828138337406_n

 

I know what you’re thinking just from looking at the teaser above: when the fuck is this book coming out?  I know.  Me and the Wife announced a couple of weeks ago that we’re teaming up to write a series entitled Wilde King, and the reception of that announcement was amazing.  Both of us are beyond excited to get this series going, and this is how it’s going to shape up…

Madman (A Wilde King Novel 1a)
Seductress (A Wilde King Novel 1b) By Isabel Lucero
Mad Love (A Wilde King Novel 2)

Notice the way the 1st two books are labled 1a and 1b?  That’s for a reason.  My talented and beautiful wife is writing Seductress (Wild King 1b), and it’s the story of Reina Wilde, a woman with a rough childhood and horrible life experiences that shaped how she became an adult.  That’s the way things work sometimes.  Sometimes you’re born into a wealthy family and everything is supposed to be easy for you, as long as you abide by the family rules.  But when you don’t abide, the cracks in the foundation become bigger and bigger until the whole thing breaks and you become someone you didn’t expect, attracted to things and people you never thought–things and people that “normal” people do their best to stay away from because they know better.  Reina Wilde is broken, and she needs someone else who understands what it’s like to be broken too.  She just didn’t expect to find someone who was even more broken.  And she didn’t expect to love it so much.

I’m writing Madman (Wilde King 1a), the story of the most insane, confusing, challenging character I’ve ever created.  Solomon King is broken too, but he’s different from your usual anti-hero.  Solomon is a psychopath who’s also smart and driven, motivated and ambitious, and he’s everything a villain is supposed to be, yet Reina sees him as a hero.  He’s not.

Solomon is different from all my other characters, even the one I loved the most, Dominic Collazo from Kingpin and Long Live the King.  Dominic was brutal and he was a worthy boss of his Italian mafia family.  He had limits though, Solomon doesn’t.  No one should love someone like Solomon.  How could you love someone you’re terrified of?  So Reina has to be just as crazy as Solomon if she’s going to love him, and that insanity erases her fear.  Solomon’s brain isn’t like a normal one, so when I’m writing his inner dialogue, I find myself having to be in a certain zone, because I don’t just write characters, I become them.  I’ve written background and info on Solomon that will never make it into Madman or Mad Love, but it was important because I had to put myself into a certain frame of mind to write his book, and I couldn’t do that without understanding absolutely everything that happened to him to make him the way he is.  I had to understand WHY Solomon King is Solomon King.  It couldn’t be on the surface, it had to be deep.  I had to take the time to shape my mind into that of a depraved psycho who has no problem laughing while he’s killing you.  Someone who has no problem taking a life at the drop of a dime, yet one who could love Reina in his own way.  His love for her isn’t normal because he isn’t.

So how do psychos love?  It’s a helluva question, and answering it is a fucking task.  Before writing this blog post, I stopped writing for a week, because when I would sit down to write Madman, I’d find myself getting stuck because I felt too normal.  You can’t write Solomon King and be normal.  I know I’ll fuck it up if I do that, so I’d rather stop and come back tomorrow, and then stop again if it still doesn’t feel right.  After I publish this blog, I plan on writing the next chapter in Madman, and I expect it to be epic.  My coffee is extra strong tonight, and after a week off, I feel ready to commit to Solomon’s mindset.

It takes patience.  Writing as Solomon King feels like writing as all my heroes and all my villains combined.  He’s all of them, Kelvin Carter and Senior mixed up.  He’s Jarrod Granger, the Tongue Snatcher, and the Snowman Killer, all rolled into one.  He’s Dominic Collazo and Abram Baskov fused together.  The perfect hero and the perfect villain.  Violence and peace. The best heaven and the absolute worst of hell.  He’s the most difficult character I’ve ever had, and that’s why he’s the best of them.  He’s unlike anything you’ve read before, because he’s taking me to a place I’ve never been before.

And I won’t let him be overlooked either.  There’s been enough of that (see Red Snow).  Madman is mine, Seductress is Isabel’s, and Mad Love is both of ours.  It’s going to take some time, because I refuse to give Solomon less than what he deserves, and he deserves all the attention in the world.  And he’ll get it.  He’ll take it.  Him and Reina both.  #TheMadmanCometh

Sincerely,
13407040_1747807852130023_7999096870031418844_n

Long Live the King is Live–And Here I/We Come!

First things first… My newest baby, Long Live the King (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #2) is LIVE!!!!  The moment has finally arrived, and my book is on shelves everywhere on the I-net, waiting for you to download it and indulge!  This book was such a long time coming, and I’m so proud to see it completed and out there for the world to read.  It took a lot out of me, finishing this book, and that’s why I appreciate and love it so much!!

live

There isn’t anything that I can say about this book that I haven’t already said, so I’ll just post this here and hope that after months of promotion and trying to hype this up, you’ll believe me when I tell you that this book is the best thing I have ever written, and it will blow you away.  The rest is up to you.  This is an epic conclusion, and I hope you’ll take a chance on it for 99¢.

Now, on to the next part of this blog post–Here I/We Come!!

I’ve been doing this for three years now, and it has been an incredible journey, and I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish in this short time with the 8 books I have on the shelf.  However, it’s time for more.  I’m ambitious, and I want to be great.  It’s really as simple as that.  I want more and more people to read my books and fall in love with these stories that I fall in love with when I think of them.  I want the world to love my characters just as much as I do.  So, here I/We come.

My wife, bestselling author Isabel Lucero, and I, have been being pretty quiet about ourselves since we started this.  We’ve sat back and watched as other books and other authors have blown up and gone on to be big deals.  We’ve watched other male authors come and go and form clicks to join forces and fans, and we’ve been in the shadows, biding our time, waiting for it to be our turn.  Well, waiting for it to be our turn has only gotten us so far, and it’s obvious that it won’t take us to where we want to go.  So, we’re about to be everywhere.  We’re about to be in you faces nonstop!  I’m totally not kidding.  Before this post, I’ve already done 3 live stream videos where I have given away books to anybody who PM’s me, and I’ve got another book group takeover first thing tomorrow morning.  We’re going to plaster our mugs all over the internet so that people can get to know us and tell other people about us.  We are a married couple who writes books!  Both of us are bestselling authors!  We have what nobody else does, and we haven’t shown ourselves to the world.  Well this is it.  Those days are OVER.  So, I plan on being everywhere all the damn time.  It’s gonna be me and my baby, forming our own little click, and taking over the world.  We are the new Joker and Harley Quinn.  The world is ours, and we want you to know who we are.  So, if after all this time, you still feel like you don’t know who I am or who she is, and you’re not sure about buying our books for whatever reason, you’re about to get to know us.

I’m the Joker, she’s my Harley Quinn, and we’re about to take over the world.  Ready or not.  Here we come!!

LLTK is Coming and So Are My Nerves

Today is Wednesday, LLtK goes live on Monday, and I’m nervous as crap!  So, here’s my issue; Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #1) did so well, I’m totally freaking out about meeting that expectation again.  Don’t get me wrong, I put in the work during the writing phase, and I’m certainly doing everything I can in the promotion phase right now, but it’s becoming so difficult to sell books and get people to read your work these days.  Dominic Collazo is the best character I have given the world yet, and he’s so awesome in this book, but having one good-selling book is tough, so doing it twice in a row is super hard.

I am not Colleen Hoover.  I don’t have a legion of fans who are ready to drop what their doing to one-click my book.  I’m not a part of a fraternity. Bloggers are not foaming at the mouth to rant and rave about WS Greer, so I have to dive into promo mode head-first and reach out and beg for my books to be talked about.  So, here is my pitch to all my fans out there who are ready and waiting for my next release… READ LLTK, AND THEN SCREAM FROM THE MOUNTAIN TOPS HOW MUCH YOU LOVE IT!!

I need you out there telling your friends about Dominic and putting them on about this book, because I worked so damn hard to get this book revised and finished.  I worked longer and harder on this book than any other book I’ve done, and it means so much to me that it does well.  Dominic is my first badass, and he is the beginning of so many more characters, and I want him to succeed.  He’s been through a lot, and he’s earned it.  The characters that will come after Dominic will only exist because he did, so I’m rooting for him to do well, and that doesn’t happen without your help.

So, the time has come, book world!  Long Live the King is just around the corner and ready to take you on a joy ride to an epic conclusion to this duet.  Buckle up, and get ready to tell your friends all about where Kingpin and Long Live the King took you!!  Here’s to Dominic Collazo!

“Fuhgeddaboutit.”

Kingpin is LIVE, and here’s how it came to be!

13118860_1404742856218050_4020178794214932701_n

 

It’s here!!  My beautiful baby, Kingpin is here and ready for you to fall in love with it!!  This book is my absolute favorite, hands down, out of all the books I’ve written to date.  It was a journey getting to Kingpin, and here’s how this novel came to be.

All 5 Banner  WorthSaving_ecover

When I started writing, it all began with Frozen Secrets.  This was my first book, and I knew I wanted to write suspense because all I read is suspense.  So, I came out with a bang and wrote a murder mystery with a detective named Jarrod Granger.  He was a misogynistic asshole in the beginning who grew and became much better by the end, and his story was my favorite (which is why he will be my longest running character over the course of my writing career… That’ll make sense later, trust me)  But, after Frozen Secretsthe book world shifted when a little book called Fifty Shades of Grey came out.  After Christian Gray, EVERYBODY became an erotic author in the indie world, and it was working for them, so I jumped on the bandwagon (no disrespect to the erotic authors out there!  Love you & stuff)  The next thing I knew, I’d written 4 books in a row that were “erotic” suspense or something like that.  My sales declined, and writing started to become less fun than what it was when I started with Frozen Secrets.

So, once Worth Saving released and got no love, I knew I needed to get my shit together and start having fun again.  And that’s how Kingpin was born!! Frozen Secrets was sort of romantic suspense, so I wanted to get back to that and have a blast, and Dominic Collazo was the first thing I thought of.  I needed him to be violent yet calm and collected.  That last thing I cared about was how sexy he was. I wanted him to care about no one except his love; if you deserve to be shot, he’ll shoot you and not think twice about it.  Need your legs broken?  Fuhgeddabout it!  Broken legs it is.  The only person who would matter to him would be his girl, who ended up being Alannah Sullivan.  But I knew I didn’t want to play the game where the guy hides his life from the girl, and when she finds out she loses her shit over it. I’d already walked that road.  So, I wanted Alannah to know that Dominic was a bad ass who’d kill anyone except her, and the only way to do that would be for her to have known him a very long time.  I needed her to be in the loop since the beginning, so that’s how I ended up deciding to start with PART ONE being when the two of them first met in just the fifth grade.  I knew that if I started with them being young, by the time they got to PART TWO as adults when the shit really started to hit the big fat fan, it would all make sense.

This book has everything I’ve been wanting to put in my books, and now that it’s finished and available (for only 99 cents this week, by the way), there isn’t a chance in hell that I would ever go back to writing stuff I don’t want to write.  Kingpin is me, 100%, and even if it doesn’t sell like crazy and become a bestseller, it’s my foundation for what’s to come and I can find peace in the fact that I wrote what I wanted to write.  And it’s been a long time since I felt that way.

I’ll end this by saying that there are so many reasons why you should read Kingpin, but I just wanted to give you my personal reasons now that it’s out.  This book is what I’ve been wanting to give you for nearly 3 years now.  This is 100% WS Greer, which is why reviews are already saying that this is my best book yet, and all the more reason you should go buy Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance).  And you can expect more suspense/romantic suspense from me, because I’m just beginning to show you who I am.  This is only the beginning for me.

One Hater Won’t Stop The Show!!

Behind every great man is a great woman… and a pack of haters throwing shade.

13101461_1731303270447148_1986545947_n

If you haven’t figured it out by now, Kingpin is my baby, and it’s only 5 days away from being released to the world!!  I started writing this book in September, and before I ever wrote one word in Microsoft, I already knew the title of the book.  It was going to be Kingpin 100% of the way, and when I told the title to my wife, I was thrilled at the smile and giggle she let out.  I knew Kingpin was the title, and I knew the story would be exactly what I needed to revive what I perceived to be a slump of books for me.  So, Kingpin was always meant to be special to me.

But, as expected, there are haters out there and this book game is about competition, believe it or not.  Not everyone out there is as friendly as you may think or as they would have you believe with their smiling profile pictures and friendly Acknowledgements sections.  So I have a small bit of shade coming from someone who I will not name, and they’re trying to sneakily throw shade on my Kingpin release.  I won’t go into specifics because, admittedly, I’m the lesser known underdog in this situation… for now.  So, I’ll just say loud and clear, ONE HATER WON’T STOP THE SHOW.

To counteract the shade being thrown at the lead up to my release day, I’m gonna have a giveaway every stinkin’ day on my Facebook page.  So, be sure to go to my page and follow the instructions that I’m gonna lay out every single day to win ebooks on said day, and to be entered into the grand prize giveaway of A SIGNED COPY OF EVERY SINGLE BOOK I’VE EVER WRITTEN.  Oh yeah!!  All 7 books, FREE, SIGNED, and SENT TO YOU!  It’s time to go all out for the sake of my baby.  I need this book to be a success, and it won’t happen without your help.  I need you, WS Greer fans.  So, head over to my Facebook page and enter a giveaway a day!!  I’m gonna break the internet with Kingpin, because ONE HATER WON’T STOP THE SHOW!!

P.S.  I really hope the person trying to slyly throw their shade on the lead up to my release sees this blog post, because you know who you are, and you know what you’re doing.  But in the end, I know I did what was right, and I was the bigger person who went out of his way to do something I didn’t have to do.  I did what I would’ve wanted someone else in the same boat to do for me if the shoe was on the other foot.  Nonetheless, I’ll persevere, MY Kingpin will persevere, and you will know… ONE. HATER. WON’T. STOP. THE. SHOW.

Until Next Time…

Homecoming, T-Minus 12, and The Walking Dead

I’m finally back at home!!  Yep, after 6 long weeks, I’m finally back home with my beautiful wife and kids and my annoying yet lovable dogs!!  42 days was a beast to have to put up with, but I endured… even walked away with a nice little award that only 6 out of 69 people received.

160415-F-QQ371-018
Not too shabby, huh??  Well, even with the accolades, I’m glad that shit is over and I’m so glad to be home again!  I missed all of this, and all it takes is 6 weeks away to make you realize how important the little things are.  I’m a lucky man.

T-minus 12 days and Kingpin will be live and in your hands!!  Whoo-fuckin;-hooo!!  That’s right, there’s only a week and a half left before Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance) goes live and sets the book world on fire.  Yes, I do have high hopes and expectations for this book, so let’s just hope a blogger or two gives it a chance and even decides to say something about it even though I’m not already super famous.  Fingers crossed on that one.  Anyhoo, I have plans to do some giveaways this coming weekend and of course the weekend before it releases, so please show me some love and take a shot at reading Kingpin early.  You will not regret it.  The countdown is on!!

Kingpin_BN

Lastly, now that I’m home, my wife has me all caught up on watching The Walking Dead.  I had never given this show a chance, and now that I have, I realize I’ve been missing out (Hey bloggers, see what happens when you give something a chance??).  This show is awesome, and I feel all kinds of inspired by it.  Not by the zombies or anything like that, but by the high level of shock and suspense.  The show is fantastic and I hope to write books in the future that shock the shit out of people the way it does.  So, if you’re not up on The Walking Dead, get on it!!  I’m currently at the beginning of season 5 as I write this, and it has been worth every minute spent sitting on this couch like a total lazy ass.  It’s official, I love The Walking Dead!!

the-walking-dead-season-5-trailer

What I’m currently reading…

Yes, I’m still reading Fool Me Once, by Harlan Coben.  I know it’s been nearly two weeks!!  DON”T JUDGE ME!!  I’ve been traveling, and enjoying being home, and watching The Walking Dead, and getting geared up for Kingpin to go live.  I’m swamped over here!!  I’ll get back to it, I promise.

Until Next Week, my people…
