5...4...3...2...122 Launch!

The 122 Rules Book Launch!

Bought some advertising space to celebrate and get the word out!

This officially marks the closing chapter of a five year journey. Today 122 Rules officially launches! It has been an incredible journey: I learned a whole new trade, discovered who I am as a writer, and found my way to being published.

But of all these trials, tribulations, and victories, the most significant thing to happen along the way was meeting Erin Rhew. That writing lead me to her means that I'll be a smashing success even if I don't sell a single book. She's my best friend, my partner, my person, my soulmate, and my Ideal Reader.

So today, we celebrate something that took me as long to write as it took Captain Kirk and crew to explore the galaxy. Those two things are equivalent...right? LOL!!!

Ceeeeellllebrate good times!

Woo! Woo! Woo!

But, really. We're chill about it. We're cool. We'll even show a little 'tude!
Whaazzz up! Party on!

Erin's launched THREE books, and this isn't even my first one...
Deek and Birth of an American Gigolo
But this is my first novel and one that I've been working on forever, and it's the one where Erin and I spent the most time talking in the margins of the manuscript and falling in love. It's the kick off of the 122 Series, and, hopefully, the gateway to many more books.

Okay, so what's coming? Well, for starters, Erin and I are on blog tour for the next couple of weeks. Her publisher decided to use April to promote the Fulfillment Series, so we decided to make it a Book Blog Extravaganza!

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill had a Soul 2 Soul tour, so we thought why not do a Rhew 2 Rhew tour! Starting on April 11th and running through April 25th, watch out for Erin and I as we blog tour around the world. There's interviews, top 10s, spotlights, fun, drama, and a chance to WIN!!! Wut? Yep, we are giving away a $50 Amazon gift card! So watch out!

In fact, if you join the Rhewination you can enter for a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. This contest is open NOW, but only available to the ruling class of #Rhewvians. So join the Rhewination today!

Okay, so 122 Rules. Let's talk about that for a minute.

In his black and white world, Sam Bradford--former Marine turned government assassin--finally sees a speck of grey. He has always followed orders without question, but his latest assignment threatens to disrupt the precision of his universe and may either severe or redeem his last remaining sliver of humanity.

Using his mastery of the 122 Rules of Psychology, Sam hunts down everyone The Agency sends him to find and eliminates them. Just as he has his rifle scope focused on his latest victim, Monica Sable, a SoCal girl entangled with the mob, his long-dormant conscience reappears for a final performance...one last ditch effort to save the sinking ship of Sam’s soul. He’s killed innocents before, but tarries on pulling the trigger this time.

When Monica escapes his crosshairs and fumbles her way across the country in a pathetic attempt to elude capture, Sam gives chase. But he’s not the only one after her. Ruthless henchmen, hired by the mob, froth like bloodhounds and nip at Monica’s heels. Now Sam is faced with a choice: turn his back on the rules and jeopardize his way of life by helping her or join the pack and rip her to shreds.

What are readers saying?

122 Rules is a fast-paced thrill-ride, filled with rich characters living in an expertly woven world of mystery and suspense. Deek Rhew’s debut novel will take readers by storm, and keep them coming back for sequels.

​~Michelle K. Pickett, Bestselling and award-winning author of PODs and Unspeakable.

The perfect, fast-paced novel for fans of kick-butt heroines, creepy killers, and getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. An absolute must-read!

With a pinch of humor and multiple twists of violent action, 122 RULES is a page-turning thriller where law-upholders, law-enforcers and law-breakers co-exist in a fuzzy line that makes you wonder: Who is enforcing the law, who is breaking it, and who are the victims of this uncertainty? Monica, a feisty and irreverent law student, is caught in the middle of it all when she finds herself in the wrong place, at the wrong time, overhearing the wrong conversation, one that changes her life forever taking us on a warped path where, what we think is real, might not be true, and what is true, is clearly debatable. Yes, Deek Rhew keeps you wondering until the last page!

~Leonardo Wild, author of THE GALAPAGOS AGENDA, a Paradigm Shift Thriller.

This is a moment in your life without comparison or equal because you are about to embark on a journey that will undoubtedly become one of those memorable experiences you tell all your friends about. And that’s why it is your Rhewination. From this point onward, everything else you read will be measured against your first reading Deek Rhew’s 122 Rules.

~Elgon Williams, author of Fried Windows (in a Light White Sauce)
