Here’s What’s New!

A Special Sale of Canaan’s Secret on Amazon is happening Sunday, February 17. This is the first day and lowest price of the novel (#6 in the Zack Tolliver, FBI series) of a Countdown Promotion. Be sure to take advantage.


Look for a special surprise in the final pages of our new e-book prequel THE DARK ROAD, now for sale at Amazon. It is an excerpt of LAS CRUCES, book #7 in the Zack Tolliver, FBI series, expected April 1.


Narrator Thomas Block has completed the audiobook of THE OTHER and you can have it FREE. This is the first book in the Zack Tolliver, FBI series and special to me. I know you will enjoy it. We’ve arranged for you to read it on trial with ACX for 30 days. At the end of that time you are free to decline membership. Click Here!

I’ll be at the Corner House Cafe in Los Olivos on February 2 at 11 AM selling books, listening to performers, eyeing work of local artists, and watching for groundhogs. Join me.

Our own local Art-Deco hostelry, the Skyview, has ordered another 40 Los Alamos Valley books from us. I love the way this establishment is integrating with the town of Los Alamos. You can borrow a bicycle to ride down the hill into town and read all about the historic buildings (don’t do both at the same time).

R Lawson Gamble latest interview by AllAuthor

Author R Lawson Gamble spent his childhood in central New Jersey on 50 acres of land with a book in his hand. It was not until 2011 after two prior careers he took up writing. The first book he ever wrote was THE OTHER which was published in 2013. The author finds writing fiction more enjoyable than reading it. He does not emphasize physical appearance when introducing his characters. R Lawson Gamble is an ardent historian and recently appeared in a documentary on Invitation Au Voyage for ARTE Europe.

  1. I have enjoyed reading the first three Tolliver novels, and look forward to reading the others. That being said, as a veteran of 30+ years in Santa Barbara County law enforcement it was confusing to me that Barnard changed from Police Chief to a member of the Sheriff’s Department as the story progressed. In addition the ‘State Police’ do not function in a criminal investigation role in California. The DOJ lab could well have been on the scene though. Obviously most readers of fiction would not have noticed this. I myself enjoyed the read and offer my kudos.

    • Thank you , Donald, for your comment. I had not realized Barnard was so loose with his job description, nor understood the limitations of the State Troopers. I shall correct these things in the next edition. I am grateful. R Lawson Gamble

    • Hi, Dwayne,

      Thank you for your inquiry. The paperback is not yet available, we expect it late summer. The audio book is in the works as well, due in September. We’ll keep you posted at the site.

    • When is ‘Canaan’s Secret’ going to be published in book form? I did not see a reply to Dave’s question. Anybody there to answer the question?
