Happy Happy Birthday!

Today is an incredibly special day! 

Today is Erin's birthday!


Erin is the love of my life. She's the lub to my heart's dub. She's the dance partner of my soul. She's my Ideal Reader. She's my best friend. She's my person. I can't even begin to tell you all the really special things about my bride.

Take a stroll with me and I'll give you a glimpse into what an incredibly lucky fella I am.

Erin makes every minute special. On our dates...




Or just climbing into the car...



Erin's always trying to express herself in different looks. But whether she's got purple hair..
Erin Rhew - Purple and Mysterious


Different styles...
Erin Rhew - Dark and Brooding


Grey hair...


Or blonde...
The Blonde putt-putt smack down!

She's still the same person, just showing a different facet of her amazing personality. For instance, she's always making me laugh with her zany hilarious antics.
Erin Rhew - Save a Horse...

A lot of the time I don't even know what she's going to do, but I can guarantee that it will be fun, kind, sweet, amazing, astounding, or all of the above.

A few months ago we posed together as Sam Bradford (the main character from 122 Rules) and his girlfriend. I have to say that Erin pulled off the bad chick thing!
Erin Rhew the criminal
I'd rob a bank with this woman anytime! Hubba! Hubba!


Erin can pull of the Portland Rocker Chick vibe...
Erin Rhew the rock star


Or the horticulturist surprised by her ginormous blooms...
Erin Rhew the flower farmer


She pulls off Ms. Agent Smith without the tiniest misstep...

As a lifelong fan of The Matrix, she's had a lot of time to study the characters. Nailed it!


Of course everyone knows that Erin is a brilliant author.

If you haven't gotten to read one of her books, start with The Prophecy. I guarantee you will NOT be disappointed!

In fact, just recently I was lucky enough to get to do a book signing with her!
People come to see the beautiful woman. Is there a man in this pic too?

Of course, you don't want to tick her off. She's the daughter of a Marine after all, and knows how to handle dangerous situations.

Do NOT mess with this chicka!

From danger to fun in 2 seconds flat!



I'm beyond lucky that she makes "us" a priority...



And even luckier that she agreed to be my bride!

OMH Did you ever see a more beautiful bride?!!!


Erin makes the mundane fun and the unbearable bearable.


At the end of the day, no matter what's happened, the troubles we've faced or the foes we've battled, it is just the two of us.

Erin and me, #Always

Erin, you are my best friend and the best person I've ever known. Thank you more than words could ever express for sharing your heart and your life with me. I want you to have the happiest of birthdays ever and to know that you are loved beyond beyond beyond.

#Always your j

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.

First the cover!

Synopsis

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)

Blurb:
I’ve fallen hard for an alien, but he’s harboring secrets.
Massive secrets that threaten the very essence of humanity.

Sadie Owens has been slowly dying inside. Bit by bit, piece by piece, day by day. Trapped in a life she hates, she relies on only one person—herself.

Despised by her family and betrayed by an unscrupulous government, Sadie dreams of a different life. When she is chosen to participate in the government’s new social experiment, she is ecstatic at the prospect of spending six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea.

Immediately drawn to Logan Chandler, Sadie is captivated by the beautiful boy with the ocean-blue eyes. Logan seems to embody everything that has been forbidden, but he isn’t all he appears to be.

Confused over Logan’s true intentions and concerned when best friend Jenna starts transforming in front of her eyes, Sadie partners with newcomer Jarod in a bid to uncover the government’s real agenda. The truth is more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined.

When Sadie finally understands why the Saven walk among us, will it be too late to save her heart and the human race?
