New announced publication schedule:

The Years of My Day: Renowned peace activist Floyd Schmoe's post mortem memoir

Late January, 2023

Our original plan - and announced publication schedule - for Floyd Schmoe's memoir, "The Years of my Day," was to make the book available to the public in late 2020. We hope and trust that our delay in publishing Schmoe's book until January, 2023, due to CoronaVirus closures of libraries on the University of Washington campus (where Schmoe's works are archived), will make sense to those following the progress of the book. Our new publication schedule will see the book become available January 24, 2023. Thank you for your patience.

Milo and Meg are Solid

Wick's first book for kids...or is it for adults who are still kids?


Drawings are coming to life, and they know when they are being erased! 13 year-old Milo, and his 12 year-old sister Meg, have discovered something strange in their hometown of August; a strange world called Icarus where they become pencil drawings. The world around them is a watercolor painting.

"Skillful tongue in cheek humor." -Kimberly J. Benart, Readersfavorite.

"A book that never overstays its welcome, and leaves you wanting a little bit more." Manahattan Book Review.

The history of the 20th century is all wrong. Please, time travelers, don't make it worse! The Past is Going to Suck breaks the century down decade by decade, until eventually the century itself...breaks down.

It is What it Is

"Readers will follow the flow and enjoy this tale." Dick Weissman, Portland Book Reivew

It Is What It Is (2015) is Wick's 'riff' on The Dude (The Big Lebowski). Seventeen years ago Zenny Zeller was the drummer of one-hit wonder band "Gupperfish." Now he rents space in his house to the beautiful Stella and her band. Stella's drummer IQ has disappeared...again. Zenny and the band bumble through one possible lead after another, hoping to find IQ before their big club show for industry mogul, Glazer-from-Polymorph. Inspired in part by Wick's own history on the fringes of the 'grunge' music scene.
