Free books & speaking on June 13, 2015

PowerPoint PresentationI’m speaking at a literary conference on Saturday about traditional vs. indie publishing. It’s the 2015 Berries, Bridges and Books Writers Conference in Hammond, Louisiana, at Woodland Park Baptist Church. Giving away my new novel all day on June 13. Hope you like Zion. Free download. No strings attached.

Security_CVR_SMLTo sweeten the pot, I’m making “Security,” a long short story, FREE, too. I wrote “Security” in February 2001. It was my first short story that really sang. I created my alter ego Peavy “Peebo” Grizzle, a lovable but dangerous log truck driver from the pine barrens of Southeast Louisiana. The story was recently published by “Big Muddy.” It’s FREE on Sat., June 13. Enjoy. Download here.

Let me know what you think about these books. Review on Amazon, and share if you have time. Thanks for reading.

Free book offer on May 28 & 29, 2015

PowerPoint Presentation

On Thursday and Friday, May 28 and 29, my newest novel will be a FREE ebook. Please enjoy and share. Zion: A Novel. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00OWN9S5Y/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_pX8yvb01R30N5

Read a recent review below from the prestigious Image journal in Seattle:

Tom Hardin, the main protagonist in Dayne Sherman’s new novel, Zion, is a man of conviction. It’s that conviction—and perhaps it should really be called obstinacy—that drives the plot, which twists and turns across the back roads and small towns of rural Louisiana. Hardin is struggling to keep connected to his wife and son, but also the rest of the world, which seems to be leaving him behind. The more he digs in his heels, the tougher it gets for Hardin, who will remind readers of characters from the stories of O’Connor, Faulkner, and Welty. In these characters, Sherman truly shines. They come to life in back rooms and church pews, making for a strange déjà vu—these are people you know. These are people who make you wonder if they actually exist somewhere in the swamp. Those familiar with the south will immediately recognize old friends, old haunts. And those who haven’t spent time in that part of the country will be taken on a tour of a place that has influenced Sherman’s work deeply. He pulls off what many writers can’t: a literary novel that is also a compelling read.

All of my books and many of my story collections are available online.

Thank you.
