Hello, I'm Larry. I'm a writer, poet, author - creator of worlds. My books have been described as Twilight Zone meets L. Ron Hubbard. All my books are a shared universe with elements of horror, the paranormal, fantasy, the supernatural, and sci-fi. Sprinkled with my own twisted humor and world perspective, my books are truly unique.
I take my writing very seriously, but I don't take MYSELF too seriously, if you can understand that meaning.
I do have a set of unusual beliefs, and though I don't claim to know the truth of the universe, I do blend what I actually believe into my stories. What parts do I believe and what parts I don't? Well, you'll just have to use your imagination on that.
I've got books published and am currently working on more stories. This site is for people who enjoy books and would like to learn more about my particular stories and how to get copies of my books.
I am always working on things to amuse and abuse the public.
Just to make sure it is understood:
All writings on this website, including the blog, as well as my published books and any stories or poems that I've written but not put in a book yet are copyrighted © and owned by me (Larry Yoakum III) and may NOT be sold, copied, stolen, plagiarized, duplicated, reprinted, distributed, or posted online or even on a bulletin board or a signpost or any other physical location without MY permission. Any violation will be dealt with in accordance to the laws of the United States of America including fines AND possible jail time. However, if you happen to want to turn my books into a movie or television show or graphic novel or whatever, then contact me and we'll discuss it. No guarantees, though. I can be reached at [email protected]
Check out my bookshelf to see what I currently have published.
I've gotten back into writing on my blog, Yoakum's Ramblings, the link to which is at the top of my page here. I plan on writing in it once a week on Sunday evenings. It will be a good way to get to know the man behind the books. On this blog, you'll be able to comment to my entries. I rarely edit them but don't be abusive or threatening. That will not end well.
In addition to that, I have a YouTube channel where I do video reviews on other author's work, readings of my own stuff to give you a taste, and other related topics. Please remember to subscribe to the channel for notifications on new videos. You can find my YouTube at:
The links below are to things pertaining to my writing and the promotion of my work. For links to other cool stuff (such as other author's sites or things I just generally find nifty), see the top of the home page for that info. I figured I'd put all my social media right down here so that it is all together and you can go to them all to friend, follow, or whatever else the kids are calling it these days.
