We are looking for readers! I have several clients who are looking to launch their new books. One crucial element to help their launch is to have honest reviews in place when the books are published and shortly after. 

Are you interested in getting a free eBook in exchange for being part of their exclusive Advanced Reader or Review Crew Team? You'll be asked to leave a review on Amazon and other sites the week the book launches. We provide direct links to the sites review pages to make it easy. 

Sign up for one or more of these books. When they're ready, you'll receive the book in your email ready to read! Advanced Reader Teams are prior to the book being published, and the Review Crews are for books that are already out in the world. 


Kilborn Review Crew.png
Wayne Hughes - Kilborn - Full Res - FRONT JPG.jpg

Kilborn focuses on a third-generation native son, Drake Kilborn. Under his father’s tutelage, he learned to pilot spray planes in his youth. Although it was generally understood he’d inherit the business, he felt the lure of moving to a nearby city so that he could continue flying, but for higher stakes and higher rewards, rewards from hauling illicit herbicides used to defoliate cotton—and cause cancer for those who handled it.


Kilborn was lured back to Jerrod by the death of his mother and the impact it had on his father. He took over the business, but his mother’s demise caused a growing depression, leading to a careless, terminal madness and flirtation with suicide. Freddy Paz, an undercover Texas Ranger working for Kilborn, travels with him to Jerrod and builds a case for his arrest. He finally reveals himself to people close to the Kilborn family and works—in vain—to bring Drake to justice. His final hour ends in a bizarre, other-worldly way fans of carefully-twisted horror stories will appreciate.Kilborn is told in the spirit of Faulkner and Grisham with a nod to Erol Stanley Gardner and Stephen King.


The Russian continues Thomas Nichols’ fact-based novels of the border wars along the southern boundary of the United States. Beginning with Color of the Prism, continuing with We Were Young Once . . ., and concluding with the third of these spellbinding stories, Nichols’ readers experience an insider’s view of the cartel-controlled human and drug trafficking.

In The Russian, New Mexico State Trooper Enrique (Ricky) Basurto joins other local, state, and federal agents in the Multi-Agency Human and Controlled Substance Interdiction Task Force. Focused along the desolate NM Hwy. 9 from Columbus to Animas, Ricky and his colleagues face the dangers of the powerful cartels, their heavily armed militias, the Russian Mafia, and the innocent men, women, and children who are their victims.

The near-ghost town of Hachita, New Mexico, is the bull’s eye in the war. It is here in the remote Chihuahua desert where life and death intersect, bringing about unexpected challenges to Ricky and his colleagues’ professionalism, ethics, and personal goals and fears.

Multiple award-winning author Thomas J. Nichols continues his fact-based accounts of the Border War Series with “We Were Young Once …” Following the success of “Color of the Prism,” this second in the series continues the Castenada/Basurto families’ dedication of stemming the flood of human and drug trafficking.

Centered in the near ghost town of Hachita, New Mexico, “We Were Young Once …,” brings the reader into the Chihuahua desert where the federal/state task force comes face-to-face with the victims and perpetrators of the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels.

A Writers’ Digest review described Nichols’ writing “…what impressed me was the verisimilitude, the sense of being taken into a story by an author who really had been there and done that.”
