Excerpt: Uncle Dust by Rob Pierce

    Rico didn’t like nice places. “The drinks cost more, and the women all say no.” So we met at Sparks, which was not nearly as well lit as the name implied. It was dark and it was nothing but a bar. If you wanted to eat, you’d better like pretzels. We strolled to […]

All Due Respect Books gets a Beetner

Freaking Eric Beetner is one of our favorite writers. He is one of our favorite cover designers. He’s cute.  And, he’s written another gritty/clever crime novella called 9 Toes In The Grave and he was nice enough to offer it to us (complete with cover) because he’s smart enough to know that it was a perfect […]

Excerpt: Jedidiah Ayres interviews Steve Weddle in All Due Respect #5

  Call it grit-lit, rough-Americana or rural noir—it seems to be a genre unto itself complete with established tropes. Did you find yourself fighting against any in Country Hardball? Well, I wanted to avoid the alcoholic, meth-addled criminal with a good heart who goes up against a bad cop set out to destroy him. I’ve […]

Story excerpt: THE FACES OF THE DEAD ONES, by Joe Sinisi

From All Due Respect #5, coming any day now:   A pair of metal doors blocked our way, one to the left, rust creeping over its hide, and one to the right, holding a small plate with illegible letters hiding behind red blackness. Tre pushed open the right door and beyond was a large chamber […]

All Due Respect books snags two kick-ass William Wallace novellas!!!!!!!

He creates incredible, original, fascinating characters from the wrong (right) side of the tracks, always caught up in compelling stories with life or death stakes. Sounds like just the shit for us, right?  Luckily, Bill is letting ADR Books publish two of his new novellas in one book: Legacy, […]

The Story Behind A Pack of Lies

I wrote this very short book (long short story? I don’t know, I get tired of labeling fiction) about a sleazeball reporter, Lionel Kaspar. It’s called A Pack of Lies and it’s one half of Two Bullets Solve Everything, along with a shorty by Ryan Sayles. This is the most autobiographical thing I’ve written. I took […]
