WRiTE CLUB 2022 - A Call For Volunteers


After ten years of organizing WRiTE CLUB, I realized something — I NEED HELP!

Apart from our wonderful Slushpile Readers (which I'll get to in a minute), my wife and I pretty much do everything...and it's a lot. My wife would like to step away and help out only if needed, and the growth of the contest has brought it to the point where bringing other people is a necessity.   

What kind of help am I talking about? Here's a description of the roles I need help with - 

Contest Registration Coordinator - Logs all submissions into a database and sterilizes them (removes real names and email addresses) before depositing them into a file for Slushpile Readers to access. Also communicates back and forth with contestants.

Social Media Coordinator - Creates posts across various social media platforms to spread the word about the contest and then subsequently spur voter participation as the contest is ongoing.

Slushpile Readers (minimum of 12) - narrow down all the submissions to just the top 30. This is a big commitment!  First, a SR must be open to installing and using Dropbox (a free file-sharing program that I will provide complete instructions on how to use). Then once the entries start pouring in (July 1) the SR will have approximately a month to read what could be 200+ entries, each one approximately 500 words long -- which equates to the length of a small book – select 30 of what they believe are the best ones and rank them. Most importantly – a Slushpile Reader cannot be a WRiTE CLUB contestant. 


So, what do you say?  Interested in helping shape how the competition plays out this year – without officially participating?  If so, email me at and I will be in touch shortly.


Thank you in advance.



Cover Reveal - FALLEN KNIGHT (available July 29th)


Pre-orders are being taken NOW at Wild Lark Books. Release date: July 29th.



I held my first book signing event this past weekend at Wild Lark Books in Lubbock, Texas, and it was awesome! By the end of the day, I had sold ALL MY BOOKS and met lots of wonderful readers. I only hope that any future events I schedule are half as successful.

The city of Lubbock really came out to support Wild Lark Books...and me...and I couldn't be more appreciative.  The folks there really seem to get what Brianne van Reenen is trying to do with her independent bookstore/publishing business, and it warms my heart to see it blossom.


I'm already looking forward to returning to Lubbock sometime after Book Two comes out this summer. If there's an independent bookstore in your city that might be interested in hosting a similar event, feel free to contact me at dlh(dot)hammons(at)gmail(dot)com.
