Runaway Train



With these words, the TV news ‘train’ officially ‘ran off the rails’.  New reporter Bill Stacy arrives at KEGT in August of ’87, the same month the FCC rescinds the Fairness Doctrine.  No longer forced to report news in an “honest, equitable” manner, Bill (whose name is as fake as the news he covers) finds himself in the middle of the biggest story to ever hit ‘Texomaland’—a serial arsonist is terrorizing the community.  


The big question: Can the investigative journalist find the ‘Torch’ before his ratings-hungry boss gets him killed?  


Coming October 5, 2021


D. X. Varos is a boutique publishing company that produces works of fiction. Because of our smaller size, we are under no pressure to produce mass quantities of titles and are able to be very selective in our acquisitions. Therefore, all of our titles will be at the pinnacle of their genre.


We only take on a few new fiction authors each year. We also accept nonfiction works about royalty and royal families or biography n general through our House of Willis Publishing imprint. Click on House of Willis in the menu for more info.

Being a small publisher does not mean we don't offer the same services as the big guys do. And yes, we are a REAL publisher. Our authors pay nothing to have their books published. We handle all aspects of perfecting, producing, and distributing your work. We also do promotion, but expect our authors to do the same. To learn more about how we partner with our authors, please see the Expectations page.


About the name: The owner of the company is author Daniel A. Willis. Dano Varos is the main character of his first novel, Immortal Betrayal, and D. Xander Varos is a pen name he uses for certain writing. Many of Daniel's friends are convinced that novel is his autobiography (making him about 600 years old!). So the company was named in homage to this fragment of the owner's complex personality.
