HEX-RATED! AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER!

Hex-Rated COver

The debut novel of my new series THE BRIMSTONE FILES is now available for pre order! Check it out!

Fall, 1970. Los Angeles has always been a den of danger and bliss, but even darker tidings brew in the City of Angels. Cults, magic, and the supernatural are leaking into the worlds of glamour and dives of the gutter. To the spectators walking down Hollywood Blvd, it’s just more proof that La La Land is over the cuckoo’s nest. But to former child magician and Korean veteran turned newly-licensed private investigator James Brimstone, it means business is picking up.

After attending his mentor’s funeral, Brimstone signs his first client: Nico, a beautiful actress with a face full of scars and an unbelievable story of sex, demons, and violence on the set of a pornographic film in the San Fernando Valley. The cops chalk it up to a bad trip from a lost soul, but Brimstone knows better.

He takes the case, but the investigation goes haywire as he encounters Hell’s Angels, a lost book of Japanese erotica, and a new enemy whose powers may fill the streets of L.A. with blood. He’ll have to us his Carney wits, magic tricks, and a whole lotta charm to make it out of a world that is becoming . . . Hex-Rated.

Buy it today so I can can afford the illusion of stardom with an ounce of reality!

Ladies and Gents, I give you the sneak peak of CARAVAN.

See you in the funny pages, true believers!

A TRIUMPH FOR SAKURA IS HERE!

And here’s what Nancy Kilpatrick, Canada’s Queen of Vampire Fiction Had to Say!

“A Triumph for Sakura is Hunger Games, Fight Club and True Blood rolled into one bloody good novel. It’s non-stop action laced with hope and pathos as a mortal fighter, guided by a washed-up blood drinking trainer, carries the potential to alter the balance between the undead elite and a broken enslaved humanity. If you think vampires have been done to death, think again; Jason Ridler’s page-turner will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat.”

A BLOOD AND SAWDUST EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW!

And now, a few words from Malcolm and Milkwood, stars of the hit novel BLOOD AND SAWDUST!

MILKWOOD: “Hey, looks like our book is selling well.”
MALCOLM: “Like I give a shit? We don’t see any of that fat cash. Besides, I got us a fight in Alaska.”
MILKWOOD: “Uh, Alaska? Why?”
MALCOLM: “It’s the only state next to Canada.”
MILKWOOD: “What? No it isn’t! Holy flying fuck, kid, have you ever seen a globe?”
MALCOLM: “Well, have you ever fought a bear?”
MILKWOOD: “Yes, Malcolm. All Canadians get the right to vote after we defeat our first grizzly. OF COURSE I’VE NEVER FOUGHT A BEAR!”
MALCOLM: “Well fuck, sorry PETA-Boy. Look, folks, unless you want Milkwood here to fight a bear-”
MILKWOOD: “I AM NOT FIGHTING A BEAR!”
MALCOLM: “Then buy BLOOD AND SAWDUST off us here so we can get bus fare to a decent fight town. Like Stone Mountain, Georgia.”
MILKWOOD: “I already regret this but . . . why Stone Mountain, Georgia?”
MALCOLM: “Because there’s this guy who has a puma that knows karate and-”
MILKWOOD: “Faaaaaaaaaaaaaantastic.”

BLOOD AND SAWDUST IS HERE!

Happy Halloween everyone! And what better way to celebrate than with a novel that can justly be described as “Fight Club . . . with a Vampire!” BLOOD AND SAWDUST IS HERE!!!

Just click the cover and check out the book for 2.99 on kindle!

 

“With wicked, playful prose that blends the best of pulp with the supernatural, Jason Ridler’s Blood and Sawdust creates an unholy, hell-raising hybrid, the kind of tale Christopher Moore and Jim Thompson might swap after a long night of drinking, trying to one-up one another with acerbic absurdity.” Joe Clifford, Author of CHOICE CUTS and JUNKIE LOVE

Hope you all enjoy it as much as Joe did!

Quickie Thinks

When my energy sags, and I need a pick me up, some authors inspire me more than others. Something about not only what they write, but how they write, how they approach their work, acts like a catalyst in my own mind. These tend to be writers who enjoy the act of writing more than others. I know for some, writing is agony, and I’m sorry for them, but if I don’t love it, I can’t make it work. So, here’s some folks you should read because I like them.

Jeffrey Ford, Steve Tem, Melanie Tem, Elizabeth Hand, Joe Lansdale, Neal Barrett, Jr., Jack Cady, Nelson Algren, Charles Willford, and Charles Bukowski.

Now go write an essay about why all of them are amazing. Due in two weeks. No extensions.
