"...a dizzying adventure. One that deals with life, death, humor, loss, prejudice, love, and of course, music. I very simply loved it." - Eric Church It's the 1800's, a time when the Wild West earned its name. Young brothers Audie and Shane DeVine have settled into life with their missionary father at an Apache camp when they barely escape a brutal massacre by the US Army. Swearing vengeance, they spend the next decade of their lives with the Apache, honing their skills in music and in fighting with deadly accuracy. The DeVine Devils unwittingly become the most famous band of their time, thundering out a rhythm on guitar and drums that brings them notoriety, whiskey, women, and trouble. Will the brothers abandon their promise of revenge for a life of fame and fortune? Or will they use their talents to execute savage retribution? Follow the DeVine Devils on their dangerous and dark journey filled with colorful characters and compelling music. This adventurous tale will have you hoping the words and music never stop. "Jeremy does an amazing job of using that [musical] bond as a backbone to a dizzying adventure--one that deals with life, death, humor, loss, prejudices, love, and of course music. I very simply loved it." -Eric Church, Country Music Artist "The DeVine Devils is an exceptionally well-written and fantastically entertaining novel. Jeremy Spillman shines as an author with this release, pushing forward a fast-moving and wholly engrossing narrative, particularly in the dialogue of his characters. The plot is original, something that's not easy to find when talking about Western literature. "-- Readers' Favorite "Prolific country songwriter Spillman moves into narrative fiction with a unique spin on the Wild West genre, combining outlaw violence with rock-star fame. . . Nonstop action, with two murderous heroes that Western fans will love."--Kirkus Reviews "I read Jeremy Spillman's book because I know him and am a fan of his as a songwriter and as a man. I also love westerns although they usually disappoint me as they are often formulaic and have no interesting female characters. I may have opened Jeremy's book with a sigh of trepidation, but I closed it with a sigh of true disappointment that it was over. It is funny, unpredictable, musical, mysterious and yes! There are strong female characters! Badass even! You will not have read another Western like it! Enjoy!" -- Mary Steenburgen, Academy Award Winning Actress and Film Producer "I've been a fan of Jeremy Spillman as a songwriter for as long as I can remember. Like his songs, his debut book illustrates the perfect landscape across the imagination. You can almost feel the midwestern heat on your skin. The DeVine DeVils is a fresh new story, yet reads like an American classic we've all grown up with." -- John Osborne, Country Music Band Brothers Osborne "I grew up in Arizona and I devoured every Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour book ever written. Jeremy has taken that genre which I loved so much and added a new exciting energy! The characters were so dangerous and likable all at the same time. I never quite knew where it was going, which was so appealing to me as a reader. I was blown away. I seriously loved it."-- Ted Danson, Emmy Award Winning Actor "Spillman has managed to take the classic Wild West genre and deliver an absolute page turner with a brand new spin. An intoxicating journey with two brothers who must learn to navigate love, lust, vengeance, violence, and even religion all with the only companion they know to trust . . . music." -- Brandon Lancaster, Country Rock Band LANCO Available where music is streamed and sold, the Devine Devils EP features songs written and produced by author and award-winning songwriter Jeremy Spillman and performed by the DeVine Devils. Also available is the full cast audiobook as narrated by Hall of Fame songwriter Dean Dillon. For more on this extraordinary literary and musical experience, visit www.jeremyspillman.com.

Devil’s Gate—the name conjures difficult passage and portends a doubtful outcome. In this eloquent and captivating narrative, Tom Rea traces the history of the Sweetwater River valley in central Wyoming—a remote place including Devil’s Gate, Independence Rock, and other sites along a stretch of the Oregon Trail—to show how ownership of a place can translate into owning its story. Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, Devil’s Gate is the center of a landscape that threatens to shrink any inhabitants to insignificance except for one thing: ownership of the land and the stories they choose to tell about it. The static serenity of the once heavily traveled region masks a history of conflict. Tom Sun, an early rancher, played a role here in the lynching of the only woman ever hanged in Wyoming. The lynching was dismissed as swift frontier justice in the wake of cattle theft, but Rea finds more complicated motives that involve land and water rights. The Sun name was linked with the land for generations. In the 1990s, the Mormon Church purchased part of the Sun ranch to memorialize Martin’s Cove as the site of handcart pioneers who froze to death in the valley in 1856. The treeless, arid country around Devil’s Gate seems too immense for ownership. But stories run with the land. People who own the land can own the stories, at least for a time.

Make it up, dammit! Just lie! How can you expect to become a physician if you don't learn how to lie? I used to recommend to junior medical students the first day they walked into a ward. I shared the wisdom accumulated in more than thirty years. I had survived thanks to a carefully woven web of lies. The mother of all lies holds there is an objective good, such as money, power, or prestige. We are expected to pursue it at the cost of denying ourselves, our unique living truth. This book narrates the journey of Lodovico Balducci in his discovery of the living truth: the ability to give and receive unconditional love. Agape is purposeful, determined, and committed love inspired by our own mystery, the most intimate needs and inspiration. Agape allowed Balducci to convert his worst liabilities, such as depression, into his most valuable assets when ministering to the suffering. Agape showed Balducci that he was sacred, that is, endowed with a mission only he can accomplish, that sacrifice (the recognition of one's sacredness) is the meaning of existence, and that redemption (the paying of somebody else's debt for the common good) is the goal of personal sacrifice.
