Sweet Success for David Slayton

by: Darby Karchut

David Slayton is pleased to announce that his contemporary fantasy, WHITE TRASH WARLOCK, will be published fall 2020.  Here’s the official announcement from Publishers Weekly:

“#OwnVoices David Slayton’s WHITE TRASH WARLOCK, in which estranged brothers from rural Oklahoma must reconcile or fall prey to the immortal powers using their family as pawns in a game Death herself is determined to win, to Rick Bleiweiss at Blackstone Publishing, in a very nice deal, in a three-book deal, for publication in fall 2020, by Lesley Sabga at The Seymour Agency (world English).”

Congratulations to David!

David grew up in Guthrie, Oklahoma, where finding fantasy novels was pretty challenging and finding fantasy novels with diverse characters was downright impossible. Now he lives in Denver, Colorado and writes the books he always wanted to read.

In addition to writing, David has taught workshops and appeared on panels at Denver Comic Con, the Pikes Peak Writers Conference, the League of Utah Writers Quills Conference, and the Seymour Agency Winter Retreat.

By day he’s a software implementation consultant.

You can learn more about David on his website or follow him on social media at Twitter and Facebook.
