Writer Nicholas Ryan Howard’s Mercenary at Midnight – A Collection of Gutsy Verse was released on Valentine’s Day and has skyrocketed to the Amazon #1 Best Seller spots in American Poetry, Love and Erotic Poetry, and Poetry About Love free charts for Kindle. It currently holds steady in top rankings in all three categories.
Crafted in the moments of utmost vulnerability—and always after the midnight hour had struck—the poet journeys without allegiance into the harrowing land of introspection armed only with a combination of daring, desperation, and mettle.
The 100 poems, tales, and reflections within showcase the author’s rebellion against complacency, rage against submission, and insurrection against resignation. Packed with vigorous wordplay and a razor-sharp wit, the writing burns like a shot of whiskey and sparks like an exposed wire sizzling in the rain.
Mercenary at Midnight comes hot off the heels of the author’s popular, independently-produced science fiction / dark fantasy novel and full-cast audio experience Mortal Enemy – Legends of the Grim Reaper #1, narrated by an all-star cast including Reid Scott (Veep, Venom), Devin Kelley (Frequency) and starring Eric Christian Olsen (NCIS: Los Angeles), Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars), Patrick J. Adams (Suits), Keegan Allen (Pretty Little Liars, Walker), Sarah Wright (American Made), Chris Pine (Star Trek, Wonder Woman), Brett Dier (Jane the Virgin,” Schooled) and many more. Recently, “Mortal Enemy” was released as a podcast, and is celebrating a milestone of 100,000 downloads.
The books and audio versions are now available on major platforms including Kindle, Apple Books, Google Play, Nook, Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Audible, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble.
