Watch: The 'Front Page Palooka' Book Trailer

Read the pulp novella that one reviewer called 'A potboiler in the style of old school writers like Mickey Spillane, Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler...'

My inner-noir tough guy when I spoke with crime writer Paul D. Brazill.

As part of the rollout of my FIGHT CARD novella 'Front Page Palooka,' I chatted with prolific blogger and crime writer Paul Brazill (author of the great 'Roman Dalton, Werewolf, P.I.' among others).

In our zippy interview, we chat about my Bogie-inspired newshound, Nick Moretti – charming, yet cynical, burned-out, whiskey-sodden – the kinda old-school guy who makes sure the right hand knows exactly what the left hand is doing.

We also talk about the creative process I used while writing the book and some uncommon forms of inspiration.

'Front Page Palooka' has it all... dames, dives, and hard-punching attitude so if you're in the mood for some serious hard-boiled pulp, this tale drips more whiskey than a busted Prohibition hooch barrel.

It's finally here's folks... It's been a looooong time coming and the primary reason that I haven't kept this godforsaken blog updated. MY BOOK HAS ARRIVED. I hope it was worth the wait. If you dig pulp fiction, noir and anything hard-boiled, than this boxing tale is for you.

The e-book  cover for FRONT PAGE PALOOKA
"FRONT PAGE PALOOKA" is my entry into the writer's cooperative FIGHT CARD BOOKS started by Paul Bishop and Mel Odom. While the book trailer is above, here's the official skinny:

Newark, New Jersey, 1954

Years of fight halls and newsrooms have East Coast sportswriter, Nick Moretti, looking for a change. When a sloppy hustle goes bad, and Nick takes a bullet in the shoulder, it’s time to go west. Hired by Pinnacle Pictures to write a boxing movie about troubled heavyweight champ Jericho ‘Rattlesnake’ McNeal, Nick joins forces with sexy public relations gal, Dillian Dawson, for a cross-country tour to give an everyman boxer an unlikely shot at the world title – what could go wrong?

From the crackling neon of Hollywood and Sin City, through the steamy Delta, and on to Chi-Town, the glitzy dream becomes a noir nightmare, and newshound Nick Moretti is about to commit a reporter’s greatest sin – becoming a Front Page Palooka … Another great two-fisted Fight Card tale!

The e-book will have the unifying pen name of Jack Tunney. A print edition (arriving later will have my name). Who else has written a FIGHT CARD book? Authors such as Eric Beetner, David Foster, Kevin Michaels, and Heath Lowrance have all penned entries in the series alongside more established names in the field such as Wayne D. Dundee, Robert Randisi and series creators Paul Bishop, and Mel Odom. Also included in the Fight Card series are two spin-off brands, Fight Card MMA and Fight Card Romance.

The books in the Fight Card series are 25,000 word novelettes, designed to be read in one or two sittings, and are inspired by the fight pulps of the '30s and '40s - such as Fight Stories Magazine - and Robert E. Howard's two-fisted boxing tales featuring Sailor Steve Costigan
