About Jeff Swesky
Author Jeff Swesky primarily writes literary fiction where the characters balance a razor sharp line between redemption and destruction. Jeff is a member of the Rogues Gallery Writers, who published a short story collaboration, "Writing Is Easy," and a group novel, "The Method Writers." He also ghostwrote the Holocaust memoir of Rabbi Samuel Cywiak titled, "Flight From Fear," and released a collection of his short stories titled, "Fell on Black Days." He's currently working on several projects, including his literary, coming-of-age novel, "Such a Dreamer," and the crime noir serial, "The Awakening of Kenny Black."
Today is the day. The Method Writers paperback has officially been released! To celebrate, the Rogues Gallery Writers with cooperation from our publisher, Dreamer Publications, are continuing with the promotional giveaways.
This week, the Rogues of the North, Bridget Callaghan and Jeff Swesky, will be giving away free copies of The Method Writers paperback by way of the Little Free Library charters in Traverse City, Michigan. The first copy was placed into a Traverse City area Little Free Library this morning. We’re not going to tell you which one, of course. Consider it an Easter egg hunt, but for books. If you do find/win a copy, please let us know what you think of our novel.
In learning that many of the LFL charters have become somewhat depleted following last week’s National Cherry Festival (seems there had been much more taking than returning,) Dreamer Publications gave us surplus copies of Rabbi Samuel Cywiak’s award-winning and best-selling Holocaust memoir, Flight From Fear, to distribute to the LFL locations as well.
If you’re not familiar with the Little Free Library program, please visit their website to learn more about this wonderful global movement that promotes literacy, community, and the love of reading.

We’re only days away from our official paperback release date (July 11th, 2016) of The Method Writers. The promotional copies just arrived, and damn they’re looking good:
The Method Writers paperback is now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others soon to follow. This weekend we aim to stand up our book launch page, methodwriters.com, which is currently pointing to our blog. The new site will be a responsive book launch page, which will include the option to download the first six chapters as an ebook sample.
We’ve all worked very hard on this paperback edition and are extremely proud of it. Thanks to our family, friends, and fans for all of your love and support; past, present, and future.

That’s right, as Dorian stated in her last post, Georgie Mae and I (or our alter-egos) will be at the 2013 Florida Writers Association Conference this weekend in Lake Mary, FL! Georgie Mae and I are Royal Palm Literary Awards finalists for a stage play that we co-authored, so we’re extremely excited about the prospect of winning. Regardless, we plan on having an incredible time this weekend. We can’t wait to reunite with Dorian and our other writer friends. And hopefully we’ll bump in to Marty during the weekend as well.
Dorian also mentioned a possible Rogues contest during the conference, so here it is:
Below is a photo of someone wearing a Yoda mask. During the conference, approach one of the Rogues and answer one of the following two questions: A) Who is modeling the Yoda mask? B) What is the plot significance of the Yoda mask in our group novel, The Method Writers?
Answer one of these two questions correctly and win a free autographed hardcover copy of the Rogues group novel, The Method Writers!!! Prizes are limited to the first three people who answer one of the two questions correctly, so don’t delay!
Who’s behind the mask??

Okay, okay, so I’m a day late (and much more than a dollar short) on my blog post. I should’ve known going into the 3-day Florida Writers Association Conference that I wouldn’t have the energy to turn on my laptop, let alone the urge or desire to blog Sunday afternoon. Especially not with a comfy bed in sight and football on TV. But I had too much to prepare leading into the conference to write the post and schedule it beforehand, so here’s your Monday morning dose of Method madness.
Now faced with the dreaded work week (back to life, back to reality,) I’m already missing the excitement and creative energy that surrounded me during the FWA conference. In case you’re not familiar with it, it’s the annual writing conference for the Florida Writers Association where hundreds of FL scribblers get together to geek out, share their ideas and projects, gush about their dreams and passions, network with others in the industry, learn about craft/publishing/marketing, eat loads of food, pitch projects to agents and publishers, win awards and door prizes, and eat some more. The best way for me to pay homage to the experience is to take all that positive energy and redirect it into my writing projects. And that’s what I intend to do. The Rogues are all busy with various personal and collaborative writing efforts, so stay tuned, because you’ll continue to hear exciting news from us.
We now have a new way you can follow (literally) along and stay informed on Rogue news. We have a Twitter account under the username of “MethodWriters”:
So please check us out, Follow us and we’ll Follow you back. And don’t be afraid to “@ Connect” us or send us a direct message–we’d love to hear from you.
Have a great week and go out and get your Method on!!
