The Glorieta Pass

March 16, 2012 — 6 Comments

Chris and I are super proud of this book. It was a title previously published waaaaay back in 2004 as an ebook. Can you imagine an ebook published eight years ago? Wild.

The Glorieta Pass is a full length novel starring the character Dan Wilder.

Dan Wilder's one bad mother-

Well, Chris and I are incredibly enthused over Glorieta because of three things:

  1. We LOVED the story. I love old crime-noir stuff, and The Glorieta Pass totally fits the bill.
  2. It’s Twit Publishing’s first novel.
  3. We took a lot of care with the PRINT book. Long form ebooks are fine and dandy, but they’re mainly utilitarian. Text flowing after text flowing after text. There’s no style to it. It’s sooooooo…. texty. We let ourselves go wild with the print book because, well, we handle a book fromstart to finish. We don’t outsource much of anything (on this one we outsourced photography and editing for our super cheesy 70’s crime pulp style cover).

Here’s the snyopsis:

Dan Wilder is a professional criminal with no past, no ties, and no responsibilities.

When Wilder shows up a day late for a knock-over job on an underground gambling parlor, he decides to spend his time in the arms of the lovely Glorieta Duncan. But she is a kept woman and her keepers are the most men in Thomaston. Before long, worse gets worst, and someone pins the murder of a cop on Wilder. Now he’s gotta stay one step ahead of Johnny Law while he looks for revenge.

He may be thief and a stick-up artist, but Dan Wilder’s no cop killer.
