Austin, Texas is not only the fastest-growing city in the U.S., it’s also home to one of the fastest-writers in the west, the legendary George Wier. Author of dozens of literary works, from the monumental Bill Travis Mystery Series to the science fiction fueled Vindicators Series to the steampunk rocket ride that is the The Far Journey Chronicles, Wier doesn’t just write books, he makes entire book shelves tremble.
Born and bred in Texas, George Wier is not only a Texan, he’s the state’s embodiment as a writer. His work ethic and word production is practically unparalleled, leaving many of his peers in the dust as he routinely makes his way up the bestseller lists. There’s practically a whole book shelf devoted to the author in the mystery section of Austin’s favorite book store, BookPeople. He’s delivered countless talks at book signings and is always filled with stories and anecdotes that keep his fanbase engaged, entertained and educated.
Reading George Wier is like taking a dip in the pool of history after a close call with the hot Texas heat. His thrillers thrill and his action packs but there’s always an awesome dose of nostalgia for all that was and still is glorious about the past. He takes you into the small nooks and crannies of what makes places like Texas great and why you should care about Nikola Tesla’s inventions and shows you the way real people talk.
There’s no Hollywood make-up or staged scenes in a George Wier novel. His stories are as real as life (even when they’re fantasy) and he takes you right up close to the action and into the heads of heroes in a way few do. Want page-turning experiences and light-speed escapism that leads you right into truth, justice and the Texas way? George Wier is more than your man for the job — he’s the architect of worlds you never knew existed.
Go to your Kindle app or Amazon account and stock up. George Wier has more than a good book for you, he’s got a big library waiting. There’s a reason he’s been mentioned in the New York Times, Publishers Weekly, became a Kindle Book Awards Finalist and his novels are getting the attention of people all over the planet. The guy can tell a story. Hell, he is one. And by the looks of things, it’s only the beginning.
Don’t be surprised one day in the future if you see Mathew McConahey starring in a Bill Travis movie. Be one of the cool people that gets to say, “I read the book.” There’ll be one happy Texan watching it all, unless he’s too busy punching away at the next one.
