Reviews Are Coming In!

“[In this] intriguing debut . . . clear crisp prose . . . morphs from a western into a detective story with an overlay of conspiracy theories.” —Publishers Weekly

“Sparkling 1940’s dialogue, wry humor, an unpredictable yet coherent storyline, and a breezy style all his own, make Colin Holmes’ somewhat spooky novel, Thunder Road, a winner. I’ll be on the lookout for his next novel.” —Rob Leininger, author of Killing Suki Flood and the Mortimer Angel “Gumshoe” series

“. . . one of the best mysteries I’ve ever read. The plot, characterization, timing, setting, dialogue, and tension was spot on. Love the noir feel of the past. Have to admit the ending twist caught me by surprise. Well done..” —Larry Enmon, author of Class III Threat, City of Fear and The Burial Place


I’ll be at the Granbury Writers Bloc on Monday, July 25th at 6:30 talking about What I Learned While Getting My Book Published.

I’m zooming in on a panel discussion May 24, for the Library Journal’s Day of Dialog. we’re talking thrillers and summertime beach reads!

Wow! Thunder Road received some embarrassingly nice reviews on our recent Blackthorn Book Tour. Thanks to everyone who took the time to read and review! The book’s at 4.5 stars on Amazon and 4.3 on Good Reads!

We had a great panel at the California Creative Writers Conference. I was among several CamCat authors discussing deception as a means to add depth to a story. Fun stuff.

The Fort Worth Business Press highlighted Thunder Road recently. It’s mostly that it took me a long time to get it written and published, but I really appreciate the coverage.

I really enjoyed talking to Allen Crowley on the What To Read Next podcast. It’s on Facebook now

Had a great time speaking at the DFWCon Writers Conference. This year, it was all virtual and online.

There was a solid turnout for my Screenwriting 101 presentation on how to get started and the things people should tell you when you think writing a movie sounds like a good idea. Maybe we’ll do it again.
