RIGHTING WRITING, an exploration into the madness of writing, editing, and publishing by Michael Bailey, is a nonfiction book for those who want need to write. Writing is a disease without a cure. Once infected, the virus is in the host for good, until death. Something first sparked a need to create, so what was it? What does it take to survive publishing and continuously improve the craft?

Coming first quarter 2023!

OUR CHILDREN, OUR TEACHERS, a standalone novelette by Michael Bailey, nominated for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Long Fiction. Children are often our greatest teachers, but what happens if the lesson is too heavy to hold? A high school in rural Brenden, Washington is taken hostage by a gathering of unlikely students trying to teach the world a new lesson … a foreshadowing, perhaps, to darker times ahead for the American education system, if gun control is not addressed properly.

In a far future Europe, following a four-thousand-year Dark Age, of which man retains little record or memory, a scroll is found in a train car deep within the snow and ice of Scandinavia, buried since the cataclysmic end of the First Age.

AT THE LAZY K, a novella by Gene O’Neill, is the first book in the Allevon series of illustrated paperbacks by Written Backwards. Features artwork by L.A. Spooner. Once a brothel, and later turned into a rehabilitation center, a place called The Lazy K survives a century-spanning curse following the wrongful hanging of an innocent man on the branches of an old California oak. This haunting novella by legend Gene O’Neill is part western, part ghost story, part drug-rehabilitation, and is a literary, multi-genre exploration into the rich cultural history of northern California.
