Book 2 Now released! “The Malone Ranch Murders: Malone’s Revenge”

I owe everyone a few blogs this week. I will catch everyone up and what a great month January was. The first book exceeded my expectations praise God! Since you are subscribed to this blog you get first looks at the release of Book 2 in the trilogy.

I had to switch narratives on this one because Jim Sanders cannot be in other parts of the country which is where the story ended up going. This one was a rougher one for me to write than the normal first person, but I would love to read the reviews next month to see what the feedback is. You can also find the book on Goodreads as well as Kindle.

The character I think that surprised me the most was Weathers and Larry. Weathers definitely manifested and brought out parts of Jim I hadn’t quite put my finger on. Larry’s confession to Jim about Big Henry and the Rangers definitely threw me for a loop. Wow.

So my characters keep waking me up.

It’s the strangest thing…when I write…I just write….I kind of go and the words and characters start talking and existing. When I am on bed, I get a nudge from Jim, or Malone, or Larry or any other characters as they clear their throat and say, “You left me hanging there Ric…I’m about to die…I’m eager to find out what happens to my life.” Lol. It’s wild. I love it. Writing brings me immense joy and I could do it for 8 hours a days. Had my pastor not nudged me to follow the parable of the talents, I would have continued to contemplate it for another year. I am so thankful you are a part of this journey with me and you get to partake in making my dream come true by even reading up to this point of my blog. Thank you!!!!!

Ok, so please take a look at my book on kindle and please rate it, comment on it, and share it please. The goal is to finish three trilogies in 2020 and get the hard copies out for sale.

Just to follow up on a few inquiries:

-Yes, there will be a hard copy available for purchase in April.

-Yes, there will be and Audio book version on audible by early summer 2020

-Yes, this trilogy could easily be turned into a western film series and yes I am still producing them and writing and acting in them.

Yes, I am already working on the third and final part of the trilogy that will be leading into-you guessed it-a cattle drive up north. A few new cowboy characters will be introduced and a challenging adventure lies ahead.

My First Book – The Malone Ranch Murders – Part One

FIRST BLOG!! 1/5/20
Welcome to my Website! Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog. If this is your first time reading any content of mine, thank you and welcome! 
I love the American West and that distinct time period in the world that we uniquely own. A period that brings visitors from across the Globe to relive and learn about the amazing, exciting, dangerous, deadly, treacherous, sexy, hilarious, gritty and entrepreneurial time in our history. I have had the privilege to know (and be shaped by) some incredible, strong-willed Southern Men and Women. I grew up in South Texas amongst some solid people that could make agreements on a handshake and whose honor and integrity meant everything to them. This is a rare breed in this new world and so I like to escape into these characters to live vicariously through them.

If you are still reading, and you are a fan from my AMC show ‘The American West’, ‘Dead Men the Series’, or any of my western venture… then I am so glad you are still coming along with me on this journey. You have witnessed a decade of my life and have seen some incredible changes. We have been on an incredible journey together and I could not have told you 10 years ago that I was going to start writing western novels, but here we are. I sat down and just began writing and characters from ‘The Malone Ranch Murders’ started to come alive and even wake me up in the middle of the night nudging me to tell the rest of their story. There is so much more to go and several other books in development. Just to throw this out as I do get questions, here are a few answers:

Yes, I will still be acting in one or two projects a year. I was booked for a supporting role in a theatrical western in November and had to decline due to scheduling. 

Yes, I will still and always be in development for my next western film or series. Some of these books you will see can easily transfer. 
And Yes, there will be many more books coming that will be available via Amazon Kindle and Audiobooks will be going up in the summer of 2020 on Audible. 
Please stay tuned and follow my western Author Page on Facebook. Please like, follow, rate, and share with everyone who loves the American West! 
God bless all of you and have a wonderful 2020. Please do drop me a note and tell me your thoughts on the first book! Also please do sign up your email for the quarterly newsletter!
