The Blackguard is Official

My mother, Kathy Garrido, holds the first ever physical copy of The Blackguard.

Eleven years, thousands of hours and enough time grimacing at mutilated notebooks to scare off an entire congregation of nice old ladies. The Blackguard, my first novel, that monster collection of revisions and one-more-things and insecurities – it’s done. I hope you take a moment to consider the new release on

If you wish to know more about this, and I sincerely hope you do, I’d invite you to read the story behind the story – the origins of The Blackguard.


To all of you who have and will support me in this journey, I thank you from the bottom of my heart,

– Ben Garrido
