I had quit writing in January and thought I was through with fiction for a while. Suddenly Diamond woke up and nudged me into 3000 words. I decided to take off for a road trip. It has been several years since I did that and am getting no younger. Plan to visit some of my favorite places on the Pacific Coast, redwood forests, the Sierras, the Rockies and Taos as well as a few places I've never been. I should come away with a lot of scenery for Diamond to operate through. Plus, I usually write copiously when I travel. The last trip to Reno I averaged 4000 words a day.
I fell like a kid with a new toy. I am 69 and half year's old today and just found out that my books are widely available. There are 14 separate sites in the U. S. where various of my books can be purchased. There are 2 sites in England, 4 in Australia, 3 in India, and at least one in New Zealand, Ireland, the Isle of Guernsey, Canada Hong Kong. I guess my blogging and joining some social media have begun to pay off. I am doing a slideshow with scenes from each of the foreign countries where my books can be purchased
This is a reading from the latest Diamond Novel.
Native-American detective uses intuition, advanced technology to save world from Mayan Revenants
Dewey W. Dempsey reintroduces Diamond, a detective with strong Native American roots, in “Diamond: Psychotic Psychiatrists and Mad Mayans”
FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. – Dewey W. Dempsey brings back the daring Diamond Rising Star Adair in the third title of the “Diamond” series, “Diamond: Psychotic Psychiatrists and Mad Mayans” (ISBN 1456474138). Diamond, a strong, intuitive and well-educated woman, applies her talents toward solving crimes and saving lives.
After feeling demeaned and belittled in the first novel, “Diamond and the Bridger Mountain Butcher,” a vengeful psychiatrist has his sights set on Diamond and her lover, Jim Sullivan. The psychiatrist enlists the help of two colleagues to help commit serial murders. They begin by planting evidence at the crime scenes that will lead investigators directly to Diamond and Jim. Once the couple’s reputation is ruined, the psychiatrist plans to kidnap, torture and kill the couple.
Something seems amiss, however, for Diamond and Jim – one his former associates within the government’s serial-killers unit appears overly eager in seeing them convicted. Using her detective skills and superior intuition, Diamond discovers that the old colleague belongs to the Mayan Revenants.
Searching for the ties behind the man’s desire to kill her and her lover, Diamond finds two other members of the group, which plans to infiltrate the United States as part of the looming 2012 prophecies. With redesigned ancient Mayan-Toltec laser-like weapons and communication techniques, Diamond, Jim and America are in danger, and the couple must now outsmart the psychiatrist, the government and the Mayan Revenants.
“Diamond is different than most lead female detectives in mystery novels,” Dempsey says. “She’s a blend of Native-American mysticism and advanced technology.”
Fans of Dempsey’s “Diamond” novel series will rejoice over his latest installment. This time the intelligent, instinctive detective travels across Central America, the United States and Canada to save herself, her lover and her country.
“Diamond: Psychotic Psychiatrists and Mad Mayans” is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.
