Welcome to Edward Massey Books!

Here is what to expect in Edward Massey Books:  my books and the books that interest me and the lives my books lead and the way books lead my life.  With breath and luck, we can both expect more books.


I am hoping we will find together the news and information that accumulates in a conversation  we might have in a bookstore, a signing, an interview, a reading, even after a speech or teaching event, or over a meal or a drink.

Fugitive Sheriff

My publisher, Five Star, has now made my third novel available on Amazon.com for pre-publication order in both hardcover and e-book. The publication date is April 17, 2019. Order now.

Every Soul Is Free 

My second novel is available at the publisher, Pen-L.com, on Amazon.com,  and B&N.com.  The e-book is also available for Kindle, iPad, and Android users.  Android users should make sure they have the Android Kindle app installed, and then browse to Amazon and download the book.

Reader’s Guides

For each of my books, a partially structured guide to our conversations and discussions will emerge as more of our community join in.

  • To start, a little comment on each book, something of an introduction but by no means designed to be a summary.
  • Discussion topics: Questions that bring together various groups because of their mutual interests, not just because they are a book group.
  • Some background notes on each book – and they may or may not have anything to do with the story you read in the book.

About Edward Massey

It starts with a biographical sketch I still don’t know how to write.  It’s a skill I hope to develop and I am honestly asking for your suggestions. It will also include a little collection of notes about what I’m doing as a writer.  You will notice these notes change from time to time, not because what I’m doing changes so much, but my ability to see and to describe what I am doing sure does.

Future Work

A dangerous subject to introduce into our conversation.  It has to be there.  edwardmasseybooks has a history of two and a future of five.  I’m pretty sure that will change.  Those five haven’t always been there.  One of them took its place in the lineup about a year ago; two of them stepped up about two months ago.  I’m not going to do much talking about what those future works will be, except to tell you what I am working on right now and to acknowledge some information that is already public knowledge.  And there will be my musings on books that I am not yet committed to write (that commitment is to me, no one else) but that I think about a lot.

The Blog

It’s the big competitor to my daily writing and, currently, I think its main purpose is to give you a forum and as much space as you want.  I will post to it, frequently and regularly, but what I hope is that you will take advantage of the forum and write what interests you about the books and the writing.

Get in Touch

All of the modern, social media (that I am not yet competent to handle) are there as well as the tried and true method of just exchanging e-mails and letters.   At each book and here there are links to allow you to get in touch with your preferred bookseller and buy the books.
