Rick Alan Rice (RAR) Literature Page

ATWOOD - "A Toiler's Weird Odyssey of Deliverance" -AVAILABLE NOW FOR KINDLE (INCLUDING KINDLE COMPUTER APPS) FROM AMAZON.COM. Use this link.

CCJ Publisher Rick Alan Rice dissects the building of America in a trilogy of novels collectively calledATWOOD. Book One explores the development of the American West through the lens of public policy, land planning, municipal development, and governance as it played out in one of the new counties of Kansas in the latter half of the 19th Century. The novel focuses on the religious and cultural traditions that imbued the American Midwest with a special character that continues to have a profound effect on American politics to this day. Book One creates an understanding about America's cultural foundations that is further explored in books two and three that further trace the historical-cultural-spiritual development of one isolated county on the Great Plains that stands as an icon in the development of a certain brand of American character. That's the serious stuff viewed from high altitude. The story itself gets down and dirty with the supernatural, which in ATWOOD - A Toiler's Weird Odyssey of Deliveranceis the outfall of misfires in human interactions, from the monumental to the sublime. The book features the epic poem "The Toiler" as well as artwork by New Mexico artist Richard Padilla.

Elmore Leonard Meets Larry McMurtry

Western Crime Novel

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am offering another novel through Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing service. Cooksin is the story of a criminal syndicate that sets its sights on a ranching/farming community in Weld County, Colorado, 1950. The perpetrators of the criminal enterprise steal farm equipment, slaughter cattle, and rob the personal property of individuals whose assets have been inventoried in advance and distributed through a vast system of illegal commerce.

It is a ripping good yarn, filled with suspense and intrigue. This was designed intentionally to pay homage to the type of creative works being produced in 1950, when the story is set. Richard Padilla has done his usually brilliant work in capturing the look and feel of a certain type of crime fiction being produced in that era. The whole thing has the feel of those black & white films you see on Turner Movie Classics, and the writing will remind you a little of Elmore Leonard, whose earliest works were westerns. Use this link.

 

EXPLORE THE KINDLE BOOK LIBRARY

If you have not explored the books available from Amazon.com's Kindle Publishing division you would do yourself a favor to do so. You will find classic literature there, as well as tons of privately published books of every kind. A lot of it is awful, like a lot of traditionally published books are awful, but some are truly classics. You can get the entire collection of Shakespeare's works for two bucks.

You do not need to buy a Kindle to take advantage of this low-cost library. Use this link to go to an Amazon.com page from which you can download for free a Kindle App for your computer, tablet, or phone.

Amazon is the largest, but far from the only digital publisher. You can find similar treasure troves atNOOK Press (the Barnes & Noble site), Lulu, and others.

Media Outlet LOCATION DESCRIPTION

Internet and Newstand PASTE is one of the fastest-growing independently published entertainment magazines in the country, receiving "Magazine of the Year" honors at the 2007 and 2006 PLUG Independent Music Awards. We pride ourselves in being the premier magazine for people who still enjoy discovering new music, prize substance and songcraft over fads and manufactured attitude, and appreciate quality music across a broad stylistic spectrum--indie rock, Triple-A, Americana, folk, blues, jazz, etc.

We strive to bring readers thoughtful analysis on the best in film, books and other aspects of popular (and alternative) culture. PLUS, every issue of PASTE contains a FREE sampler CD (packed with 20+ songs). The Paste Sampler CD is an invitation-only CD we treat as a glorified office mix-tape, not something to listen to once and rip the two or three good songs. What more could you want? (OK, maybe a free subscription. We'll try to get it bundled in with universal health care, how's that?)

Ryman Auditorium

Nashville Live Music Clubs

Bluebird Café
4104 Hillsboro Road, Nashville, TN
Places like the Bluebird Café are the reason that "Music City, USA" can keep its title and dignity. While the average tourist gravitates towards big name shows at the Ryman, locals and industry vets know that the heart of country music is located in intimate clubs like the Bluebird, which feature little known and amateur singer-songwriters performing seven nights a week. Most recognized is the legendary new songwriters showcase every Sunday. Kathy Mattea and Garth Brooks both played the Bluebird before making it big, but the bar stays true to its down-home musical roots, providing a place to dream for the most heartfelt, honest strummers in a town full of city-slickers with demo tapes.
Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar

Robert's Western World
416 Broadway, Nashville, TN
As the “Home of Traditional Country Music” you will not find another like Robert’s Western World. Merle Haggard, Tom Petty, Tracy Byrd, Kid Rock, Allison Kraus and Rascal Flatts all have one thing in common with the folks that sometimes make the dinner bell at the Nashville Rescue Mission. They have all bellied up to the bar at Robert’s Western World, ordered a PBR and a burger and listened to the best traditional country music Nashville has to offer. Robert’s Western World draws everyone from the stars to a few homeless fellows who in the glow of the flashing neon guitar and the signature Red Cowboy boot reminisce as the haunted sounds of Hank Williams pierce the night.
Station Inn
402 12th Avenue South, Nashville, TN
