What's New from Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers?

For your reading pleasure, these Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers authors announce their new releases:


Fogg in the Cockpit by Richard and Janet Fogg has a new cover and a new release date. The novel has been selected as a featured novel by the Military Book Club.

Casemate, hardcover $21.75
June 2011. 256 p. (978-1612000046)

Renowned for decades as the world's foremost railroad artist, Howard Fogg's career spanned half a century and some twelve hundred paintings.

However, while his art has been welcomed for decades, few of his enthusiasts have been aware of his prior career, as a fighter pilot in the U.S. 8th Air Force during World War II. Fortunately Fogg left behind a detailed diary of his experiences, which illuminate this brief but exciting aspect of his life, as he flew 76 combat missions in bomber escort and ground attack roles in P-47 Thunderbolts and P-51 Mustangs.

You can find more information at the blog, Fogg in the Cockpit, and Janet's website.

Set against the turmoil of late 70's Bay Area California, Karmafornia spins the latest incarnation of a love triangle. When ambitious Laura, new to grad school and Berkeley, and her go-with-the-flow boyfriend Walt, meet bright arrogant fruitarian Cob at a party, she strikes sparks with him while Walt sees trouble coming. Their struggles with history and desire play out against the backdrop of Proposition 13, the Jonestown tragedy, the SF City Hall murders of Mayor Moscone and Harvey Milk, the rise of "new wave" punk rock, and the Twinkie defense.
