Cover Reveal Ramblings – 10/21/2017

As promised, here is the new cover for book five. The art was done by Marc Guerrero, who is a rock star and a pleasure to work with. I’ll reveal the title sometime next week. Please, leave a comment and let me know what you think.


Low-Down, Desperate, & Damned

Here are the early reviews of The Unquenchable Fire:

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great story about redemption and realizing one’s purpose in life, even when that purpose seemed no longer viable. I did find the bible verses a bit canned, but that’s something I’m dealing with in the real world as well so it was only a minor hitch that did not take away from the prose. Sam Skeen is certainly someone I’d like to get to know better.


5.0 out of 5 stars Some of D.A. Adams’ best work! March 3, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
D.A. Adams has done it again. He has used his great storytelling, richly developed characters and intense battle sequences to weave a tale of excitement, adventure and redemption in this supernatural western. If you were a fan of the ‘Preacher’ comic by Garth Ennis in the mid/late 90s, this is right up your alley. Fantastic work!


5.0 out of 5 stars Great story! March 1, 2015

Pale Rider meets Supernatural.

I seriously enjoyed this story. Great western story with paranormal elements and a few philosophical struggles to thoroughly stir the pot. I hope to see further adventures from these characters, as well as some back story for one Mr. Sam Skeen.


New Release


I have a new release, available exclusively for the Amazon Kindle. The Unquenchable Fire is a stand alone novella that’s part of the Outlaws of Fiction serial Low-Down, Desperate, & Damned. Here’s the blurb:

After losing his faith during the Civil War, fallen preacher Sam Skeen now serves the leaders of the seedy river town of New Port, handling business outside the law like protecting the town’s brothels. His dreams are haunted by the horrors of the war, and Sam wants nothing more than to drink away his misery. But on Stone Mountain, a strange evil torments livestock and terrifies the farmers. Sam is hired to investigate, and what he finds will transform his life forever.

St. Patrick’s Day Dwarven Extravaganza!

Seventh Star Press Open House
So for a few weeks now, I’ve been promising big news, and now, I can announce it. Today, The Brotherhood of Dwarves will be featured on Book Bub as a fantasy recommendation (though I’m not entirely certain at what time). For those of you not familiar with the site, it has over two million subscribers, and while obviously not all are fantasy readers, its fantasy subscribers are fairly robust and quite loyal. Today has a chance to be quite a day for the series.

So check back this evening to see what kind of fireworks Seventh Star Press has created, and have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!

Amazon Ramblings

Seventh Star Press Open House

For those who have followed me for years, you already know how badly I want to write full-time.  For those relatively new to following this blog, please trust me when I say that pretty much my every waking thought is somehow connected to making my writing career successful and moving out of education.  Right now, I feel like the books are gathering some momentum on Amazon.  There have been a couple of recent spikes in sales, and books two, three, and four have seen really good movement.  It wouldn’t take much of a push to cross over into Amazon’s top seller category.  To that end, I’m pushing with all I have right now.

If you can, please help spread the word.  Please, take a moment to “Like” my Amazon Author’s Profile page.  The like button is located in the upper right-hand corner just below the Cart.  There are also buttons for sharing that page on Facebook and Twitter.  If you would, please spread my page around and generate a little activity.  Amazon factors all of this into their algorithm for sharing an author’s work, and the more momentum we can get right now, the closer we can get the series into the top top seller rankings.

If you’ve read my books and haven’t yet written a review on Amazon or Goodreads, please do so if you have the time.  These reviews also factor into the algorithm and go a long, long way to increasing exposure.  Most importantly, please leave an honest review.  I’d much prefer a dozen honest three star reviews to one fake five star.  The key is simply the volume of reviews that show activity with each book.  If you can, please take a minute and leave reviews for the books you’ve read.  There’s real momentum gathering, and it won’t take much more to push it over the top.

For all of you who have already supported me so much over the years, thank you for believing in me.  Your encouragement and feedback and engagement mean more than I can ever tell you.  I’m truly grateful for each and every one of you.
