Politics as Unusual


Some have said, regarding this crazy election season, “You can’t make this stuff up.” Well, you can, and a number of authors did, and we’re all featured in a great new StoryBundle right now!

I’ll let the bundle’s curator tell you all about it:

Four years ago I published Endgame, about a reality show star running for President. An agent told me, “Way too over-the-top. And totally unbelievable.”

(Which makes me wonder if Mister Trump read it and got the idea to run.)

You can’t argue with reality often being stranger than fiction this year. That said, it’s only fitting that we put together a bundle of political thrillers which are fiction… well, for now, anyway.

These days everything is political… while some of the books in our bundle touch on the race for the Oval Office, politics is not just exclusive to the electoral process. Our bundle kicks off with a classic Pulitzer Prize winner by Allen Drury, Advise and Consent, about the Supreme Court. A timely topic in light of Justice Scalia’s unfilled seat.

Speaking of award winning authors, we’ve got a novel from Hugo & Ellery Queen award winner Kristine Rusch, The Enemy Within, a cool alternate history book set in the turbulent sixties. What if there was yet another assassination of a legendary Washington figure?

New York Times & USA Today bestselling author Joshua Graham offers Latent Image in which a picture is worth more than a thousand words to the Secret Service… and the photographer is worth even more.

Michael D. Britton comes up with some of the most clever plots I’ve ever read. His novel AssassinWare deals with electronic security and might have you disconnecting your computer from the Internet by the time you’re halfway through the book.

You’ll also find riveting stories on everything from contract killers to submarines, all with political intrigue. I love a good page-turner, and trust me, these books hit the ground running.

So if you need a break from the strange reality of the 2016 election, our political thriller bundle should be just the ticket. Our “campaign” runs through election day, and in this case, I think we’ve got ten winners. I promise no TV ads, no robo-calls, no direct mail appeals for money. I only ask that you read early, read often.

I’m Nick Harlow, and I approved this bundle. – Nick Harlow

6 Goals for the New Year

My goal for 2013 was to publish a blog post a week here at my website. Well, as of today, I can check that one off!

For 2014, I have the following 6 goals:

1) Publish CARRIER – the novella sequel to my 2011 novel ASSASSINWARE. This one is pretty much good to go; it just needs a reading by one of my First Readers, a cover, and a blurb.

2) Publish a novella called DECEIVE THE PARADOX. This one’s almost ready, so this is a nice easy way to start off my goals and give myself momentum as the year gets started. Needs a read, a cover, and a blurb.

3) Finish the novel I started last year – it’s a collaboration with my friend Aaron Edson. Called THE FISHERMAN’S SON, I expect to get that wrapped up by April, then begin phase two: film adaptation!

4) Publish at least two short stories. I have a couple that are close to ready, so that should be easy.

5) Complete the first six episodes of THE IMMORTALS, an episodic story I believe would be ideal for BYU-TV.

6) Post my crazy serial graphic novel RISE OF THE CHYKYNS here at the website; at least get the first few of them up. (P.S. I need an artist for these!)

So, 2014 will be a great year for getting more products out to market.

What are YOUR goals for 2014?


Joseph of Nazareth Release Day

My long-awaited novel, JOSEPH OF NAZARETH finally has a release date: 12/23/2013.

That’s Monday! Just in time for Christmas!

Here’s the blurb:

For two thousand years, his name has been known throughout the world – though very little is known about his life. His crucial role: husband of Mary, and the most important step-father of all time. What was it like to help deliver the baby Jesus, to raise the Savior, to witness His suffering in Gethsemane and upon the cross? Experience a first-hand account of the man called to be the father of the Son of God, in JOSEPH OF NAZARETH – a work of inspirational historical fiction.

And here’s the fabulous cover, by awesome graphic designer, Sue Gagnier:


I look forward to hearing all of your thoughts about the book in the reviews you leave on Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, or other sites.

I hope this book moves you and touches your heart, and I hope that it does some good in the world. If it brings just ONE person closer to God, then it was all worth it!


New Novel Coming Out

It’s been a year since I published anything.

It’s okay, though, I needed a break. But I am glad to be back in gear again – NaNoWriMo helped with that. It’s my sincere hope that I’ll have a new novel out for you by Christmas…though time is getting short!

This novel has actually been a really long time coming. I first conceived it in November 2009, and felt a compelling drive to write and release it. I truly felt that I had to write this book – that I could not move on with my career until I did. So, I committed to the project, and then spent a couple of years (on and off) researching, because it was my first historical fiction, and I wanted to get it right.

I am pleased to say that I have become very well acquainted with the world of ancient Israel (Jerusalem and environs, about 2,000 years ago). I immersed myself in the culture and a deep study of the records of the time, and how we got those records. Fascinating, educational, enlightening.

I then wrote the book in a couple of short bursts, finishing the actual writing relatively quickly (much of it being completed in the 2012 NaNoWriMo, actually). I then handed off the manuscript to three of my trusted first readers. The first two got back to me in a timely manner. The third (my lovely wife, who I can count on for brutally honest feedback and great ideas) took rather longer – it can be really hard to get an appointment with her!

We finally got through the feedback session this past weekend, and I’m making final edits now. I’m also completing the appendix portion of the book.

I hope to get the cover designed this week by a professional with whom I work (using photography I custom-shot last December), and then go through the publishing process this weekend.

Look for JOSEPH OF NAZARETH in time for Christmas – it should be great timing, since the first Christmas is an important part of this story!


 Jerusalem, part of the setting for my new novel!

Forget What?

A few years back I wrote a sci-fi mystery short story about being able to delete unwanted memories with a pill. Last week, Popular Science published an article about how we are getting closer to that very reality.

As appealing as it may seem at first blush – the ability to simply rid yourself of some of your most unpleasant recollections – it opens up a lot of intriguing questions. For example, in my life, I have had some truly horrible experiences that I would rather not think about – really traumatic stuff. But those very experiences – those trials and afflictions – are an important part of what made me who I am today. So, if I decided to selectively erase those experiences from my mind, how would that affect who I am? Is not the entire composite of our past integral to who we are?

In other words, what might be the unintended consequences of removing the bad? Might it end up ruining the good? Would it possibly short-circuit the whole point of opposition? How could I develop and grow as a human being and gain strength from enduring difficulties, if those difficulties vanish from my brain?

Given these questions, I ask you: if there were a safe and effective pill for deleting specific memories, would you take it? If so, do you know which memories you would erase? Discuss!

My story, REMEMBER, is available at Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords (all other e-reader formats). Or you could pick it up as part of my mystery anthology, ICE MAN.

11 Things To Do To Celebrate a Successful NaNoWriMo

I did it! I completed the NaNoWriMo! 50,346 words in one month. Wow.

It finished up a little weird. Rather than work on one piece, I ended up completing three.

I wrote the vast majority of the month on one novel project, but that finished up a couple of days ago, so I finished a novella yesterday, and then today managed to crank out the tail end of another novel that’s been sitting around for way too long (a sequel to AssassinWare). So, the great bonus is that I not only kickstarted my fiction writing, but I got three newly-completed products out of the deal.


So, how do I celebrate this sweet, sweet victory?

1. Post my success on Facebook.

2. Post my success on Twitter.

3. Post my success as this week’s blog post.

4. Enjoy all the LIKEs and COMMENTs I get on Facebook the rest of the evening.

5. Put away the laptop.

6. Stretch my legs.

7. Go grab me some yummy Thanksgiving leftovers – especially pie!

8. Go spend some time with my family, and thank them for their support these last 30 days!

9. Publish my work! (not today, though – I’ll work on that next month!)

10. Relax!

11. Sleep.

See ya!

Here is your winner !

10 Ways to Write a Successful NaNoWriMo

With so many writers participating in NaNoWriMo, you’ve probably seen a few tips on how to cram those words in each day. But, every writer is different, so you may not have found all the best ideas yet.

So, here are mine.

This list is really specific to me, and I don’t expect everything on here to work for you, but you may find that some are adaptable to you, your writing style, and your lifestyle:

1. Commitment. When I decide to write a novel (50,000 words) in one month, I mean it. I do not make excuses; I make sacrifices. I do not accept failure; I accept that I made a decision and I will stick to it. I do not doubt myself; I confirm to myself that I can and will do what I set out to do.

2. First things first. I have a lot going on in my life, and when I commence on a task of this magnitude, I have to make sure that I maintain balance and keep my priorities straight. While it may make sense for some people to wake up and write those words immediately; for me, I have to do certain other things first. To ensure that I am successful, to make myself ready, to assist with strength and inspiration and endurance, I choose to put other things on my to-do list ahead of the writing. It may seem counter-intuitive, but I just know that I am less effective and less blessed with the ability to manifest my talents if I neglect my prayers or my scripture study. I’ve never had a problem with praying morning and night, but my scripture study has been patchy over the years. But not right now. Just when you may think I would have a great excuse to drop that ball, I make sure I do not write a word until that chapter of scripture is read. (I also make sure that other important things are taken care of, like personal hygiene, nutrition, and exercise; though some of those items sometimes tail behind writing in my daily order of operations.) Also, I never write on Sundays – even during NaNoWriMo. Yes, that alters my daily quota because I only get 26 days instead of 30 to write my 50k, but so be it. It’s more important for me to keep the Sabbath and write a couple of hundred extra words on the other days.

Bottom line: there may be something else that’s important to you; if it’s something that gives you strength, don’t make it take a back seat when you need your strength the most.

3. Enjoy the challenge. You gotta have fun with this. There’s no point unless there is some joy in the process.

4. There is no such thing as down time. If you are not eating, sleeping, working, or taking care of other essential tasks, you are writing. At least, until the word quota for the day is reached. If you want to get ahead, great. But until that point, there is no TV, no movies, no games, no Facebook, no Twitter, no web surfing, no YouTube, no shooting the breeze, no time wasting. You write until you’ve reached that number.

5. Reward yourself. You are not a robot. You are not a machine. Once you’ve reached the word quota for the day – once you are totally caught up and on track – feel free to get ahead if you want. But be sure to take a break first (unless you are on a major roll) and kick back with some mindless entertainment for a little while (but not at the expense of sleep!) or say hello to your spouse and children. They probably miss you.

6. Sleep well. Yes, you have to make some sacrifices, but your health is not one of them. You can’t function very well if you are not well-rested. Your schedule may change a little during this heavy writing month as you stay up late to write after the spouse and kids have gone to bed, but be sure to catch up on that sleep either with a later start in the morning or some good naps at other times (like at the day job).

7. Do the math. If you ever feel overwhelmed, just do the math, and it doesn’t seem so bad at all. For example, if you write at the leisurely pace of 750 words per hour, and you are writing for 30 days (see #2 for why I write 26 days), then that’s only two hours and 13 minutes a day of writing. Most people waste that much time each day on Pinterest. Come on, folks. It’s no big deal!

8. Keep track. Do whatever it is you do to measure your progress, but measure your progress. I love spreadsheets. A lot. So, I created one in which the only thing I need to do each day is enter my current total word count from Microsoft Word into a certain cell, and the sheet calculates how many words I have left for the day to stay on track, how many words I have written cumulatively, how many words will be required tomorrow if I stop now, where I stand as a percentage of the task and a percentage of the month, and draws a couple of pretty graphs of my progress. All from entering one figure. And it does this while accounting for my odd word quotas based on Sunday-less writing. It’s fun! It’s also encouraging and allows me to very easily see where I stand and be motivated to work harder if necessary. If you don’t like building spreadsheets (what’s wrong with you?) then I guess you could just use the system they have set up at the NaNoWriMo website. Or a notepad and a calculator (boring!).

9. Let others know. Talk about your NaNoWriMo experience. Not to brag, but to let people know why you’re so focused right now (and that you’ll have another book out soon), and also to let those closest to you know that you need their support. That support consists mainly of staying out of your way, which means altering their expectations about your availability to do other things for these 30 days. I’m a man on a mission, and those around me know it!

10. Make it a habit. If you are a writer hoping to make a career of it, NaNoWriMo should not be a one-off, or once-a-year thing. Yes, after November 30th you may give yourself permission to slow down a bit; especially if, like me, you have a full time day job and lots of other obligations. But the writing habits you form during NaNo should be the foundation of your writing life going forward. Don’t stop. Keep writing regularly and keep writing fast. Writing quickly, for me, produces the best work. And writing regularly, for me, produces story after story and novel after novel – it’s the way it’s done.

Keeping Up

As I mentioned last week, the idea of writing 50,000 words of fiction in one month is not, in itself, much of a big deal. If you are a writer, you write. And if you write, putting down a couple of thousand words a day is a no-brainer. It only represents maybe a couple of hours a day (at most) of effort. For a full-time fiction writer, the whole idea of NaNoWriMo is somewhat of a joke – writing a novel in a month is something you likely do every month, not just in November.

The trouble is, for me, it can be hard to keep up that pace every day with all the other things in my life. For example, I have to spend 40 hours a week (give or take) at my day job. On top of that, there’s family responsibilities, church roles, my son’s karate classes (a 25 minute drive from home), the community choir, extended family visits, a wedding this month (it’s over now), my wife’s birthday and Thanksgiving (both yet to come), continuing to get my daily pedometer steps (to qualify for a great prize in January from my employer), and a ton of other stuff.

I know it sounds like excuses – but since I am actually keeping up with my writing, it’s not excuses, but it is an explanation for why it’s not quite as easy as it could be to knock out this novel-in-a-month.

But I am keeping up. Today marks the halfway point, and by the end of the day, I will be at 25,000 words – I guarantee it. Even if I have to stay up until midnight!

Several of you have asked me what I am writing about. The project is top secret, but let’s just say it’s a sci-fi political thriller of sorts – a kind of Atlas Shrugged meets National Treasure with a healthy dose of inter-dimensional quantum physics – all set in the very near future. I even throw in a little of the three Rs – romance, religion and revolution.

The best part? It’s a collaboration. That is, the concept was the product of a brain storm & development session with one of the coolest people I know (Aaron Edson), and although I am handling the writing, he continues to provide creative consultation and overall direction, with the plan of adapting the novel into a feature film later on (he’s an awesome director and composer). Look for the book to come out in 2014, with the movie some time later.

If the general concept of the novel sounds interesting to you, and you think it would be a good idea to run a Kickstarter project to help get the movie rolling, comment below!

Why am I doing this thing called National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo? Well, I have my reasons.

It’s not that I think writing 50,000 words in one month is that challenging. I mean, it is when you have a full time day job, family and church responsibilities, and other things you need to do. But that’s not really the point. For me, this time, it’s just about getting started again.

Yep, my main reason for doing this is that it’s time to get back on the wagon. Unfortunately, I’ve barely written any fiction this year – aside from a few pages here and there to get some ideas recorded for later – and it’s high time I get back to this writing thing. Since, after all, I am a writer.

And writers write.

I’ve not been a writer this year. I have my reasons and my excuses and my explanations – but in the end, they’re useless. What matters is what you do. I cannot publish or sell “good intentions.”

I tend to do well when challenged, when faced with external motivations. So NaNo is the perfect opportunity to kickstart my writing again. And the good news is, I’m keeping up, so far. Yeah, it’s only a week in, but so far, so good. In fact, not bad at all for being so completely out of practice.

Thankfully, fiction is like riding a bike. Your butt gets sore, you sometimes get bugs in your face, but the scenery makes it all worth it.

Ride on! (Er, I mean, WRITE on!)

P.S. If you’d like to follow my progress, I’m posting updates to Facebook and Twitter most days. Other than that, I am avoiding the social media at any time when I could be writing instead. Probably a good rule for when it’s NOT November, too.



I have no idea how this happens. Each week I write this blog, I have one of my short stories in mind, based on a list in a spreadsheet. My goal this whole year has been to work my way down the list, in order, and tie a piece of current news to the story of the week.

And somehow, no matter how bizarre or outlandish the topic of this week’s short story, there is almost always some sort of easy way to tie it into a current news story. It’s uncanny.

Take, for example, this week’s story, SOLE SURVIVARRRGH. It’s about a pirate who abducts two Americans. And what was in the news last week? Pirates abduct two Americans. Seriously, it’s like I live in the Bermuda Triangle or something. Which, by the way, is where all this happens in my story.

I usually like to tie this story in with International Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19), but it also works pretty well for the day after Halloween, since, after all, the guy in this short story looks like a trick-or-treater on steroids.

Anyway, let me know if you enjoy SOLE SURVIVARRRGH, matey! It’s available on Amazon (Kindle) and Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else).

A Matter of Life and Death

Two years ago this month, the paperback version of Canceled: The Story of America’s Least Wanted came into the world.

I distinctly recall doing the final fine-tooth-comb edit of the proof copy, in July of that year. Not oblivious to the irony, I did most of that edit while sitting in McKay-Dee Hospital, on the maternity ward.

Why was I there? We had just lost another baby. One who was so deeply wanted. It was a very hard time for our little family. I won’t tell you that story here today, but to get a taste of what it was like, you could read about what happened the previous time we lost a baby, in a story I originally wrote for a magazine. It’s called THE LIFE OF THE MOTHER, and I still can’t read it without my eyes watering.

Check it out, on Amazon (Kindle), or at Smashwords (Nook, iPad, & everything else). It’s only 99c.

Out on a Limb

An inspirational story out of New Jersey this week…a teenage amputee – that’s quadruple amputee – just scored his first goal in a soccer game. You really should check out the story.

It made me think of a story I wrote about an amputee – and the power of positive thinking. My main character only lost one arm, but what he had to go through to save a bunch of people’s lives makes for a fascinating tale of heroism.

How to Go Viral

As of this writing, this short video of dogs crawling with a baby has garnered almost a million views on YouTube. (You can’t see me, but I am shaking my head.) Look, if I could invent some kind of virality-predictor, I could make a million dollars. And it would, of course, go viral.

Speaking of dogs, this week’s blog post points you to a story I wrote a while back about dog races. Well, they’re not really dogs, exactly; and the story isn’t really about the races, exactly. Eh, you’ll see.

It’s more about blowing up an entire planet, all Alderaan-style, because you can only take so much of being jerked around by a scam artist.

Oops, Sorry!

Ever get it really, really wrong? Like, you thought you saw something, but you really didn’t? Or thought maybe a person was someone they weren’t?

Mistaken identity cases usually don’t end well. In recent news, a guy in Texas attacked a father and son with a power saw and an ax, only to realize he had the wrong people. Oops, sorry!

Meanwhile, this Welsh dude totally got locked out of his home by the government…only they had the wrong house. Oops, sorry!

Then there’s this chick, who keeps getting arrested for crimes she did not commit! Oops, sorry!

Something like that actually happened to me, back when I lived in Oregon. While I wasn’t arrested, I was detained by police on more than one occasion because I happened to look like some other guy who was a local thief. Oops, sorry! (Stinking criminal doppelganger!)

My short story, BALLS, also deals with a case of mistaken identity – sort of. It’s actually based on something that happened to me in Italy one time back in the 90s. This wry tale has a great twist…check it out and let me know what you think!

You can find it at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else). Enjoy!

Stewards of History

A news item this week tells of a level-headed lawyer who soberly claims to have traveled through time and teleported to historical events, including the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln. You can decide for yourself just how level his head is.

That reminds me of that old TV show “Quantum Leap,” which I used to love back in the 80s. A guy who has to “set things right” in history in order to move on. And THAT reminds me of another great 80s show along a similar premise: “Voyagers.”

And of course THAT reminds me of a fun time travel tale I wrote a while back called BROKER, that involves making sure the right people die at the right time in history – and a bitter rivalry between two travelers who are tasked with the job.

Check it out and let me know what you think! You can find it at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else). Enjoy!

Ancient Records

Many world faiths are based in ancient records (and/or the modern translation of such records). From the papyrus fragments that comprise copies of copies of writings of disparate and disputed origin, translated and re-translated, pruned and amended, until it forms the basic canon of post-Nicene Christianity; to apocryphal scrolls discovered hidden away in caves; to the direct translation of engravings upon thin leaves of gold called “plates” that provide the scriptural basis of Mormonism; to the study of the words recorded in antiquity that inform the Muslim religion – these faiths rely on messages written down and preserved centuries and centuries ago.

In another universe, the leaders of one world’s religion seek after a long-prophesied volume of ancient records that can only be found on the other side of a wormhole. Check out THE FINAL TESTAMENT and let me know what you think!

You can pick it up at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else). Enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Deadly Business

The mobile device industry is a pretty high-stakes world, as the Samsung-Apple lawsuit from a couple of years back shows. In fact, just last week five HTC executives got nabbed and charged with stealing trade secrets as they departed the company’s employ.

Yep, corporate espionage is a big deal.

In fact, it can be deadly. In my short story ROYAL FLUSH, a seemingly chance encounter in an airport men’s room takes a turn for the worse for one businessman.

You can pick up ROYAL FLUSH at Amazon (Kindle) or Smashwords (Nook, iPad, Sony, Kobo, and everything else). Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
