We’re In The Home Stretch To Nominate, “THE WRITER”!!!

With your help, my latest novel, THE WRITER has been a Kindle Scout “Hot Pick” since it was entered for publishing consideration last month.

Now just a few days remain and then I and all of you will find out if the publisher will choose to add the novel to its roster.

Am I a bit nervous? Oh yeah…

The upside for all of you who voted is that if the story is selected, you will have an advance, FREE e-book version sent to you very soon after after which you’re urged to read it and leave a review before the story is then released to the rest of the public.

If it’s not chosen, you get a notification just as quickly telling you I failed. (It won’t actually say failed, but let’s be honest, that’s certainly how it would feel! This life of words can be a heartburn-inducing experience.)

At that point I would still self-publish the story and make it available to you for purchase soon after, but it wouldn’t be free. (My novels are how I keep the lights on around here.)

So if you know of anyone who might be interested in a free mystery-thriller, let them know about the link and just tell them to nominate it and in a few days, we’ll all see how the chips fall.

And thank you AGAIN to all of you who have been so supportive of my work. I really-really hope you have a free copy of

THE WRITER in your inbox soon!



Some secrets are better left dead…

College journalist Adele Plank has been granted a rare interview with one-time bestselling author, Decklan Stone. He is a man largely withdrawn from the world following the tragic death of his young wife twenty-seven years earlier. Adele ventures to the writer’s remote, private-island home in the beautiful San Juan Islands, and there begins a journey of dangerous discovery that will have her scrambling to unravel a mystery far more shocking and deadly than she could have ever imagined.
