The Kings of Chaos Motorcycle Club Series Book 3 Title and Cover Reveal

“Yeah, see, it all started when this dame walked into my office, see. Nope, just kidding. This isn’t that kind of detective story. I’m not classy or elegant enough for all that mess.”

The return of Will McGee! He’s toppled an outlaw motorcycle club, crippled a drug distribution ring, and dealt with crushing personal blows along the way. So what do you do when you reach the end of the road? You turn around and ride back where you came from.

When a new black and blue patch begins popping up around Rough River Falls, along with some all-too-familiar faces, Will is confronted by his past. Whether he’s ready for it or not. Throw on a rain suit, because the sunshine is over.

Cover reveal: Crossfire

The much-anticipated sequel to Crossroads is nearing completion, so it’s time to start sharing some sneak peeks!  The first three drafts are out-of-the-way, and the graphics have been completed.  I’m waiting for the last round of notes from my proofreaders before shipping the finished manuscript off to the publisher.  While the official release date is still pending, I’m excited to share the synopsis and finished cover art with you, so check it out!

“Once upon a time, in a far away land, there was a knight who tried to save a princess. That’s an example of how this story doesn’t start. This is no fairy tale folks, so if that’s what you’re looking for then you’ll have to keep looking. This is more of a nightmare. My nightmare.”

Will McGee is back! Just when he thought he could take a breath from infiltrating and toppling an outlaw motorcycle club, he realized just how much his tiny hometown of Rough River Falls, Kentucky truly needs him…even if it appears that they don’t want him. The town is imploding as a direct result of his actions against the Kings of Chaos Motorcycle Club, and the impact is starting to rear its ugly head in multiple ways. The lawman’s battles have left him scarred and weary, but he’s never been one to leave things alone. Can he restore order to the chaos he created, or will he get caught in the Crossfire? Grab a helmet, this ride could get a little out of control.

Crossroads Deluxe Photo Tour Hardback Edition available now!

Including all the action-packed fun that you loved from the original release of Crossroads, the Deluxe Photo Tour Hardback Edition (that’s not a mouthful or anything) provides a glimpse into the actual world of Will McGee and the Kings of Chaos Motorcycle Club.  While the story is set off the banks of the Rough River in Central Kentucky, the locations behind the story are actually based off of real locations from my childhood.  Though Rough River Falls doesn’t technically exist as described, I wanted a setting that was placed in a real geographic location with the freedom of creating the environment to best suit the story.  Subconsciously, as the world was created around the Kings of Chaos Motorcycle Club, I realized that the settings that were being described were directly inspired by locations I was familiar with through my adolescence.
So check out the Store page and order your copy of the Deluxe Photo Tour Hardback Edition today and get a real feel for Rough River Falls!

Crossroads officially available on 8/2/2016

I am ecstatic to officially announce that the release date for my first novel, Crossroads is August 2nd, 2016!  It’s been a long time coming since the original file was first created four years ago!  I never expected this process to be so drawn out, but I also never would have guessed when I started writing this story that I would change jobs, move to another city, get married, and have two kids.  Life happens that way sometimes and I wouldn’t change any of it.  So check back on my Store Page at midnight on 8/2/2016 and be one of the first people to order a copy!  See what some of the early reviews are saying:

Crossroads cover art

“F***ing awesome.  This has movie deal written all over it, even though we all know the movie versions are never as good as the books.  Charles Kelley has bolted on a modern storyline to the timeless soul of the 60s – 70s outlaw biker films.  With characters recognizable to anyone who’s filled their teeth with insect corpses and their butt with saddle sores, this is a fast-paced read that’s the literary equivalent of taming the dragon.” -Andrew Miller, author of If Only the Names Were Changed

“The pace picks up at the right times and it’s all around a great read.  I fell in love with the characters and story overall.  I had to tell myself to stop reading so I could get some sleep.” – Christian Scully, author of The Chronicles of Erika Lorenz series

“Crossroads is a biker-classic that will leave the smell of gasoline and gun smoke in your nostrils.  If you like mayhem and motorcycles, grab a copy of this book!  With a cast of characters you can almost smell, and enough action to keep the pages turning, you can hear the bullets whiz past your head as the story unfolds.  You have to check this one out!” – Adam K. Moore, author of the CompendiumTwenty-Three series

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have a sequel to get started!  Thank you, that is all.

Book update: Blogumentary

(Okay, so I may have just made up a word in the title of this post.  If you wanted to write a commentary or documentary on a blog, then what would you call it??)

First, a little background.  In case you’ve missed it, I’ve declared several times that I am starting to write my first book – like here, here, here, and here.  (If you were already aware of that, then thanks for checking back with me!)  I have no clue what to do, how to do it, or where to even start, so I had some meetings with a couple published authors.

I’ve been a little intimidated by the enormity of such a daunting task.  So much so, that I still haven’t completely committed myself to it.  I insist on saying things like, “I’m THINKING about MAYBE TRYING to write a novel.”  I’m basically just running in place, even right now, by simply recapping posts that I’ve already written.

Anyway, once I stated my intentions, I heard from a lot of family and friends that they have had a very similar idea and to let them know how it goes.  With that in mind, when I started to come to the realization that I would finally commit myself to writing a book, I also decided that it might be cool to write about the process itself and track my progress.  Continue reading
