MORE New Releases From Trestle Press !
"HAMM IT UP SOME, BEAN!"
Marissa Hamm and Mike Bean are at it again. Two personalities too acerbic, too opinionated for anyone to stand to be around. So the lieutenant assigns the two Homicide detectives to be partners. Hamm's blunt talk and Bean's sarcastic smirk play off each other like gasoline on a hot fire. Sooner or later someone is going to get shot. Or stabbed. Or clubbed up the side of the head with a brick. Or all three, one after the other.
Yet they're good at their jobs. In their own fashion they find the bad guys. Come along for the ride and have a few laughs. And thank your lucky stars you witness these two and their antics from afar.
B.R. Stateham is a fourteen year old boy trapped in a sixty-one year old body. His enthusiasm and boyish delight in anything mysterious and/or unknown continues.
Writing novels, especially detectives, is just the avenue of escape which keeps the author’s mind sharp and inquisitive. He’s published a ton of short stories in online magazines like Crooked, Darkest Before the Dawn, Abandoned Towers, Pulp Metal Magazine, Suspense Magazine, A Twist of Noir, Angie’s Diary, Power Burn Flash, and Eastern Standard Crime. He writes both detective/mysteries, as well as science-fiction and fantasy.
In 2008 the first book in the series featuring homicide detectives Turner Hahn and Frank Morales came out, called Murderous Passions. A Taste of Old Revenge is the second book in the series. At the moment we’re in a searching pattern to find a publisher.
Also in 2008 he self-published a fantasy novel entitled, Roland of the High Crags: Evil Arises. The novel, the first in a complex fantasy series, is about to be re-issued through
a new ebook publishing house, Trestle Press.
In 2009 he created a character named Smitty. In 2010 a collection of Smitty stories, and a two-novella set came out featuring this dark eyed killer, again by Trestle Press.
Married to a long suffering wife for a quarter century, B.R. Stateham is the proud father of three and doting grandfather of five.
"SON OF MINE"
The Son Shines: Part I
What dark secret plagues John DeAngelis from his past? Guilt and shame so heartbreaking, he buried it away for years, allowing it to tear at the family who loves him and turning him to alcohol to numb his pain?
Sonya Fredericks carries a burden. Seventeen and pregnant, with a mother whose wild ways and addictive behavior threaten to overtake her, Sonya struggles to better herself while keeping her mother’s habits from harming her before it is too late.
Aaron DeAngelis, who once knew only rage and pain, finds himself a changed young man. Caught up in the troubles his loved ones and friends carry, he is pushed to the breaking point. Will he be able to maintain his newfound faith and confidence while so much sorrow is going on around him? Will he get caught up in the drama, perhaps losing himself once again?

"REPRISAL-VOLUME 6-SUGAR AND SNAILS"
Trestle Press presents Sam Lang’s Reprisal, a digital short story series.
Reprisal is a dying town built on secrets and haunted by a mysterious shadow since its beginnings.
Eddie Newport must survive one night in this town with his oldest friend as a bus full of escaped murderers breaks down on Main Street.
Little girls are made from sugar and spice. Little boys from puppy dog tails and slimy snails. Danny Lurton is an odd combination of sugar and snails. Maybe Danny could have been a TV game show host in a different life, but in this one, things turned out for the worst. Destined to spend the rest of his life a prisoner, Danny is visited by his child victims while waiting to board the bus.
Sam Lang lived a cold, dark life. Ignored for most of his existence, he developed a fascination with things of a macabre nature. His writing explores the dark recesses of human behavior. Lang writes with heavy thematic elements and symbolism, creating harsh, hyper-realistic characters. Lang currently resides in Florida where he spends his time thinking of new ways to delight and horrify his readers.
Trestle Press has brought him out of the shadows with his series, Reprisal, a murderous tale of escaped convicts in a deserted town haunted by a mysterious shadow. The first four episodes are available as digital short stories from Trestle Press, starting with Making Plans, Making Memories followed by The Impeccant, Shadow Boxing and She’ll Get Your Engine Started . More chapters are yet to come.
Sam has participated in the Author’s Lab collaboration series with Giovanni Gelati on The Two Johns. He also has the upcoming one-shot A Vampire’s Guide to Sex, a short tale about (you guessed it) vampires and sex.
Currently, Sam has teamed with Darren Sant to create Severed, an on-going short story zombie series.
Not much else is known of this reclusive author.
"AN AMISH JOURNEY-SET FREE-VOLUME 3- THE BARN INCIDENT"
His last chance was their only hope.
In this new, best-selling, periodical short story series from Trestle Press, a man on the brink of self-destruction is given the opportunity to start over.
Walking into a freezing river in January may not have been Allan’s best idea, but the consequences give his family time to make some choices of their own. Tina plays caregiver to her husband while their children learn about their new way of life. This proves to be challenging for Brett, a fourteen year old boy used to video games and internet. His decisions lead to The Barn Incident.
George Michael Loughmueller is a descendant of German heritage. Finding joy in being a husband and father, he is known by his friends as “Laughing George” because of his cheerful disposition and the pronunciation of his last name.
Born in the Midwest, George has spent time both in Omaha, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa. He works in retail, but has long had the dream of being an author. With the support of family and friends, George decided to write a story inspired by his grandfather.
“Set Free: An Amish Journey” is a work of fiction. However, some of the events are based on facts and stories told by George’s late father about the unusual life of his grandfather. In George’s mind, the fictional church district of Karsten Field is set in the small communities of eastern Iowa.
