http://www.lockdownpublishing.com Glenn Langohr: In Prison on Drug Charges for 10 Years, Now Author Of 5 Books, Roll Call, Upon Release and the Series, A California Pelican Bay Prison Story
“For the last 6 years of my incarceration I woke up at 4 AM every morning to write, before the on-rush of prison life took over, to finish my drug war novel Roll Call.” States Langohr, “I felt compelled to write, to open the eyes of the community, that the drug war is a spiritual war.”
Roll Call, available in print and e-book retailers, follows Glenn Langohr’s path portrayed as B.J.; from being raised by the Angelic mother he is torn from, to becoming a drug dealer, always trying to find a way out of the dark life of an addict.
In another thread the path of three large Mexican cartel members have a hungry quest to obtain U.S. money and delves into how the Sinaloa and Michoacán cartels commit thousands of murders and deceptions for control of the drug trade.
The cartel paths inevitably meet B.J. in Orange County, California leading to a roller coaster ride of excitement through drug smuggling cartels, to street gangs, to outlaw bikers, all trying to get their piece of the action. Add a good detective squeezed out of the loop by an overzealous narcotic detective; a robust prison union trying to call the shots; and a handful of other drug criminals trying to hold on to their conscience; and, you have the perfect recipe for a revolutionary uprising, bound by blood; all leaving the reader wondering, who are the real criminals?
Kirkus Discoveries Nielson Media Review “A Harrowing down-and-dirty depiction of the U.S. War on Drugs, sometimes reminiscent of Soderbergh’s Traffic, by former dealer, California artist Langohr.”
Upon Release from prison, Glenn Langohr finished the sequel to Roll Call, Upon Release, along with A California Pelican Bay Prison Story, Lock Up Diaries and Gladiator. He started Lockdownpublishing to help other prisoners turn their lives around through writing and art. See his u-tube video

Brand new GIVEAWAY announced.
The Chosen by Chaim Potok has been on my TBR pile for a very long time and I am so glad I finally read it. I was going to wait until my son read it and have him write a review but I decided that there’s no harm in both of us writing one since it will be a while before he’ll be able to read it and write his review. And then I’m going to read this wonderful book again. I’m sure there’s a lot I didn’t catch this first time.
For the first fifteen years of our lives, Danny and I lived within five blocks of each other and neither of us knew of the other’s existence.
So states the first paragraph of the book, The Chosen, by Chaim Potok. It’s spoken by the protagonist Reuven Malter. It’s through Reuven’s eyes that we experience the story. It’s a pregnant sentence. Are Reuven and Danny going to be fast friends? Life long rivals? Ardent enemies?
