About James Hold

"First you're an unknown, then you write one book and you move up to obscurity." — Martin Meyers

I published my first book in 2004. It became an immediate collector's item. I know this for a fact as I have several hundred copies collecting dust in my attic. Critics everywhere said it belonged right up there between Ernest Hemingway and Robert E Howard—on an alphabetical bookshelf.

My influences include Rocky & Bullwinkle, 1950s sci-fi movies, and silver-age comics.

I live in Texas with my Princess wife, and cats Rocky and Dusty. You can contact me at jamesroyhold@gmail.com.

Review by: Doctor Caronte 6 on July 10, 2017 :
This is a fantastic novel. Mr. Hold till now has written connected short stories but this is a legitimate novel with a single plot. It is hilarious and the Cutie Pie sisters are a hoot, especially in the seance chapter. It contains a hilarious pun concerning the final fate of the villain. But like Aunt Michelle said in her review, the sad ending it makes me wonder what Mr. Hold ultimately has in store for his hero. Viva la lucha and Viva El Hombre J.

Review by: Michelle B on May 4, 2017 :
This is both the funniest and at the same time the saddest book in the series. Will our poor hero ever get a break? A tropical storm floods Houston and three sisters ask J-man to help find their father who they believe had been kidnapped by the criminal N. D. Bag. The story takes place over a 24-hour period during which J-man gets the holy hell beaten out of him many times, yet in the end he pulls through. The three sisters are likable after a fashion but at the same time I really wanted to haul off and smack them for being so insensitive to J's distress. There are so many hilarious scenes here (including a pie fight), but my favorite is when J impersonates an Eastern mystic, the Shah Na Na, and conducts a seance. Highly recommended to all readers. Laughter is guaranteed, along with a few sniffles.
