My new book STREET LIGHT will be available on Amazon this week.

Doesn’t seem like much of a headline, does it? I’d like to be running full-page ads in every major newspaper. Alas, no budget. So, instead, I’ve sent most of them a press release that I’m sure they’re busy ignoring.

After all, who am I?

J.K. Rowling has sold more than 200 million copies of her various Harry Potter books. J.R.R. Tolkein sold 150 million copies of Lord of the Rings. Dan Brown sold 80 million of The Da Vinci Code. Mine are near those totals only in my dreams. (sigh)

 
However, here’s what some of the review sources have said about the first two books in this series:

        REICHOLD STREET_250px   one way 250px

    KIRKUS REVIEW – REICHOLD STREET
    “…the characters are bold, the plot twists surprising, and the point—that we never fully know a person or his or her story—heartbreakingly clear…Skillfully written and emotionally charged.”

    TBR BOOK REVIEW – REICHOLD STREET
    “This is one of those books that makes you laugh, cry, reminisce, want to run into the novel to try and save the day and much more…an indie novel that you want everyone to hear about…Don’t let this one slip under the radar!”

    READERS FAVORITE REVIEW – REICHOLD STREET
    “an extremely moving account…Herron is a master of the art of character development. You can hear each voice clearly as they relate their experiences…For a work of fiction this brings to life some of the real tragedies that had occurred during that time. I believe this book will appeal to a vast audience…a great piece of literature…”

    TBR BOOK REVIEW – ONE WAY STREET
    “…part of Herron’s charm as an author is that he writes a story that many relate to. The way (he) flips back and forth in time and from character to character is a gift. There are few writers who are able to pull that off, keep you engaged in the story and then give you the sense of complete enjoyment…This author has proven his accomplishment…He is here to stay…”

    READERS FAVORITE REVIEW – ONE WAY STREET
    “…an engrossing and complete stand-alone novel…Herron’s coverage of Vietnam in ONE WAY STREET ranks up there with some of the best war-related literature…Herron’s characters, both in war and peace, are finely drawn, and his writing style is accomplished and flowing…a memorable book…”

I’m proud of those reviews. Which is why I took a moment to toot my own horn (since I’m afraid no one else is going to do it).

Still working on some earned media (see ‘Tags’ below)…and the promised podcast answering your questions about writing. Also planning some other author interviews…stay tuned.
