This month's Fight Card release is my own Swamp Walloper (the sequel to one of the original Fight Card books, Felony Fist)  featuring the return of LAPD cop/boxer, Patrick Felony Flynn ...


Paul Bishop (writing as Jack Tunney) ... The long anticipated sequel to the original Fight Card novel, Felony Fists ... Patrick 'Felony' Flynn is back!  And this time he's in way over his head ...

New Orleans, 1956 ... When the battered body of boxer Marcus de Trod turns up on the edge of the Bayou Sauvage outside New Orleans with the words ‘Get Felony Flynn LAPD’ tattooed in his armpits, Hat Squad detective, Patrick Felony Flynn, knows he is in for the fight of his life. 

Far from the hardboiled streets of Los Angeles, Flynn and his partner, Tombstone Jones, are on a two-fisted rampage to find a killer.  But hiding in the swamp, deep inside the walls of the Bayou Sauvage Federal Penitentiary, the killer patiently waits to crush his prey with razor sharp teeth and deadly jaws. 

After taking down gangster Mickey Cohen’s championship prospect Solomon Kane in Felony Fists, Patrick Flynn triumphantly returns in Swamp Walloper, facing an even more dangerous foe – a killer fueled by voodoo and revenge ...

Any blog posts or social media mentions would be appreciated.  

Later this month, we will be releasing the first title in our new Fight Card Now imprint, featuring contemporary boxing tales.  Nik Korpon gets the imprint's debut spot with Punching Paradise

Hot on its heels will be our highly anticipated December release, Fight Card Sherlock Holmes: Work Capitol, in which Andrew Salmon magically transports us back to Victorian England and illegal bare-knuckle boxing bouts as the world's most famous detective gets ready to rumble.  If you haven't yet seen the beautiful cover painting by Carl Yonder (lettering by David Foster), you can check it out here:

December will also bring publication of our first anthology of Fight Card short stories, the proceeds of which will go to authors in need or literacy charities.  The Fight Card team members have all been so generous with their talents by lending stories to these causes, and we anticipate at least three further Fight Card charity anthologies in 2014. 

2014 is shaping up as another banner year for Fight Card ... Along with our monthly traditional Fight Card titles (from both new and returning authors), we have several more Fight Card MMA titles lined up, a new Fight Card Romance in the works, a second title for Fight Card Now, and (if that isn't enough) we are anticipating the launch of Fight Card Luchadores - our new imprint featuring masked Mexican lucha libre wrestlers.

It's an interesting process as Fight Card continues to face the changing challenges of modern publishing, but I'm personally grateful for the ongoing interactions I have with all of our Fight Card team and continue to believe in the brilliant and fun stories being produced across the spectrum of our Fight Card imprints.

Keep Punching ...
