Loren Christensen (LorenChristensen) | 30 comments After writing 45 nonfiction books, I signed a deal with YMAA Publishing for a fiction series of at last three books about Sam Reeves, a Portland, Oregon police detective and martial artist. The first one, Dukkha, was released this week as an Amazon e-reader (Kindle and the like). The paperback will be out next month.

Hey Carl. Mondo sounds familiar but not the other. Good?

Carl | 5 comments At the time it was good, i was going through my Bruce Lee phase, prob very dated now. You read any Jonathon Mayberry? Also a good martial arts cop series by Richard Laplante, not many books but good.


message 9: by Loren (new)

Loren Christensen (LorenChristensen) | 30 comments No on both. I just Put them on the list.
While I read in the same genre Iin which Im writing, I try not to to get to specific. For example, I read a lot of Robert Crais, Michael Connely and Lee Childs, but I rarely read other martial arts fiction. I don't want to accidentally pick up on something a MA writer is doing.

Carl | 5 comments I love Crais as well but he mostly alludes to Cole meditating MA style.
Reacher is just a big tough blunt instrument.
There is not a lot of MA books around at the moment I think.
