Dead and Dead For Real“ Fantastic! Wow what a crazy ending! Actually the whole book was pretty great, but I literally could not stop reading once after the 60% mark. I almost feel like I just read 5 different books instead of just one – So much happens, it would be impossible to sum up (I don’t do that anyways). This is an impressive effort from author R.L. Clayton, and it is quite clear that he is an author to watch."” - Jenna Brewster— Indie Book Reviewers

R.L. Clayton's Joseph's Side of the Story

So far, the cover with Kiki is the favorite. We may tweak it a little, but it will probably be the new cover. I'm still hopeful that the book will be out in Sept. There will be flourishes and a band playing.

I just finished the second edit of Dead Prey. With the help of Alexis Powers and her editing pencil, I probably only have 3 or 4 more to go before my other editor sees it. I am moving along.

I had to change the name of one of the cartels in my new book. If Los Zetas took offense, I'd be gone. Writing scared is new for me.

Nearly finished with second edit. Yes, it is better. I have Alexis Powers doing a third edit. It always helps to have another set of eyes looking. August still looking good.

I'm into the second edit. I'm focusing on one character to give him a unique voice. Alexis continues to help me with editing. Thank you Lexi.

I finished the first edit on Dead Prey.  more edits to come. I'm actually enjoying this. I did get some help on my first 2 chapters from Alexis Powers. Thanks. Steve is working on the cover now.
