My guaranteed promise to you...

All surrounding scenery will change completely soon enough; nothing lasts for ever, no matter how bad or good it is.

Be sure to investigate the author site of Rowdy Living Press ( https://rowdylivingpress.home.blog/2019/06/20/example-post/) in reply to the press master's call for those interested in making submissions to our first literary journal, The Periodic Pen.  

Plans are developing for publishing an anthology. Your best poetry would be greatly appreciated. Later on following the poetry anthology, we are scheming of how we are going to design and publish our first short story collection. Read our site for more refined instructions and details. Let us know right here if you want in.

 American individualism is a dying philosophy of life in the USA, since individual liberty at large is on its way out, unfortunatly. Be a part of this great legend in living free, while the opportunity still yet endures!


My latest publishing successes were with three literary journals; The Fear Of Mokeys, Short Story Lovers, and The Leaves Of Ink, CC&D Magazine in three additional magazines sponsored by CC&D, and in three anthologies. Frontier Tales has published some of my work, and so has the Scarlet Leaf Publishing Company, respectively.  I have had success with two volumes of nonfiction on American History published by Algora Publishing.

My 150 page epic poem, "March Of The Divine Magnificent," has been accepted by a traditonal publishing company that specializes in publishing thought provoking work. March of the Divine Magnificent by H. L. Dowless, Paperback | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com)

Recently I placed a manuscript into submission, and I was offered a contract. The novel is titled “Southbound To Angel Island.” This novel is a unique work of escapist literature. It deals with a very realistic description of social deterioration covering America’s landscape. The protagonist is falsely accused of a crime, where he flees to a mysterious elusive island he was informed of as a child by sailor elders in his family. Here on this island, his every dream of wealth and individual liberty is fulfilled. This island is what America once was, and established to be, an oasis of individual choice.

I truly enjoyed writing this novel, although I did so some ten years ago. I have edited it and rewrote it more than five times over the years, submitting it more than one hundred times, until I finally landed a traditional publishing contract in 2021. I certainly hope readers enjoy this work when it comes out, much as I have writing it.

More of my most reacent publications are linked on my blog. Getting published in a literary journal is not an easy task, but I managed to do so inspite of any obsticals.
