O.L. Colterabout this book: Many years ago, Rez died - at least, on paper. With the pesky technicalities of being alive out of the way, he spends his time cleaning up the streets. With funding from a local wealthy business CEO, police connections, and a sexy assistant, his job is to use more direct methods of crime fighting, often with his trigger finger. In Resolution, Rez takes on police corruption and a mysterious death which appears to be a message aimed right at him.
I was inspired to write this book because I am interested in street crime and I wanted to build a situation where my character was free to basically handle things however he wanted, but then face whatever consequences developed afterwards. A cop works within limitations and if he or she doesn't, then the consequences are pretty obvious. My character is free from those kinds of constraints and the consequences he faces are more challenging and also more open to where ever my brain takes me.
Primary readers for my book are going to probably be male. One of the goals of my writing is to offer something to reluctant readers. I do that by focusing on the core content and by cutting out the fluff. I have interests in cars, guns, and the conflicts surrounding the main character and the choices he makes. I write for adults, but mature young adults who are tired of teenage sorcerers and vampires are going to finally find something they can enjoy reading with mature characters and situations.
The title will eventually lead the reader to the meaning of Rez's nickname in some way. All of the titles of this series will start with words in the English language beginning with "rez" sound - like Resolution.
I did the cover art. The whole point is YES, judge this book by its cover. If you like this gun, you'll probably like the book. It's a way to turn the old adage about judging a book by its cover on its head and use it to maybe benefit the reader. It makes it easy to get the bottom line of the book's content, and it is also connected to the story because each cover will give you an image of what Rez is carrying or just be a cool firearm.
