The Almagre Review on The GAIAD

rock-cairn

I’ve had the privilege of getting to know two extraordinary gentlemen, who are rapidly becoming pillars of the Colorado literary community. John Lewis and Joe Barrera are in this game for the right reasons. Their literary journal, The Almagre Review, seeks to make a difference — to add a powerful, honed and beautiful voice to the often cacophonous choir that can be modern literary media. Thank you guys for being you, for being present, and for producing your Review — A bright and shining light.           John recently published his thoughts on The GAIAD. I’m impressed and truly grateful that he made it through the entirety of the novel, knowing his workload and the train-loads of submissions The Review receives. Please keep it up, you warriors for good. Your work is noticed and appreciated. -Will Will Burcher is a former police officer and current author of “The GAIAD,” … READ MORE…

A special thanks to Judith McKay for a strong, intelligent interview on “The GAIAD” aired on KCMJ in Colorado Springs for her show, Voices and Views. Judith goes right to the heart of the book, something I avoid typically in my marketing thinking that it’s a “spoiler” for people. It’s not. It’s what the book is about, and a powerful statement on our relationship with our planet and each other. The Earth is alive. The Earth is a thinking being. It could also be a communicating one… Take a listen!   Will Burcher is a former police officer and current author of “The GAIAD,” a story of ancient secrets not quite forgotten and the positive power of global perspective.

My friend Noel and I head out for a hike and discuss the topic of my recent (written) blog post—Resistance, or writer’s block.  Be warned: Sunglasses will be worn awkwardly, all dogs (regardless of sex) will be called “buddy,” and there might be a graphic story of horrible injury and something about Kevin Bacon toward the end.     Will Burcher is a former police officer and current author of “The GAIAD,” a story of ancient secrets not quite forgotten and the positive power of global perspective.
