Newest Review of Death’s Door

I try hard not to inundate readers of my blog with books I’ve written and my lack of marketing skills, but this review from Jo Robinson is something that made my day. I know Jo from the great blog she has about writing, life in South Africa and her great support to other writers. She is a very talented writer, so this review means so much to me.

Reviews are so important to writers if only to know that their works are being read by others. They also help us be better at our craft.

I hope you will check out Jo Robinson’s blog and books because she has a very easy way with words and her stories are interesting, touching and so well written.

Sells of Death’s Door have had a slow start because, I think, I’m not known in the thriller genre. Recently it ranked at number 2 for Terrorism at Amazon and I nearly fell on the floor. If you haven’t read it please give it a go and let me know what you think.

Jo’s review:

The things that most struck me in this book were the descriptions of the lives of the people in the Middle East, as well as Muslims in the USA. With all the hatred in the world today, books like this are needed, and will go a long way to create a better understanding of those nations and the realisation that they are loving, feeling, and proud people just like everyone else, and deserving of our friendship and respect, rather than painting them all with the same brush.

That being said, even without that, it was a brilliant rollercoaster ride to read from beginning to end. From the minute I met Dell and Bill, slap bang in the middle of a vision and a bomb about to go off, I couldn’t put it down. Their journey to stop a catastrophic event that would inevitably lead to world war takes them from the States, to Israel, and Lebanon and back again. The desert scenes and the words of love are beautifully written, and took this book to another level for me. And the laughter will catch you unawares – I didn’t see any of it coming, and at the risk of a tiny spoiler, I have to say that Bill’s gas had me laughing so hard I had to stop reading for a little while.

At the end of this book, I loved all the characters, including whacky, crazy Captain Teasdale. A beautifully crafted story combining elements of emotion and humor skillfully with some seriously hair-raising action. I definitely recommend it

 

 

Does This Mean I’m Normal?

The gracious and lovely Laurie Jenkins interviews me at her Non-Paranormal Thoughts and Reviews site. Does this mean I’m normal?? There must be some mistake, lol.

I really enjoyed this interview because Bill Anders- New Jersey State Trooper- came with me to answer a few questions. I may have to take Bill with me everywhere I go. He’s funny.

Please take a look at my latest interview with Laurie and make a comment. This is the last in the series of interviews so help a brother out. I’m trying to sell a couple of books here.

Honestly, I want to thank everyone who gives me hope and support! I truly love you!

Well, I went back to my old computer and can now link on words and add pictures. If I could only figure out what the deal is with my newer computer.

I’ve been exposed! Take a look- Interview with IBP

Me doing another interview? Hard to believe, but it’s true. The great people at IBP– Indie Book Promo- do a wonderful interview with me to help promote my latest novel, Death’s Door. I even reveal a few secrets on what inspired me to write this great thriller. You might be shocked.

On this somber day of 9-11 we all remember the terrible attack on our western way of life that took so many lives. My novel, Death’s Door,  takes a look at a similar style attack with a different outcome and a different aspect of the possible victims.

I hope my friends, peers and readers will stop by IBP and leave a comment. You know how I love a good comment. Thank you for all your support. You do make an old writer smile!

A New Book is Born!

I want to introduce my latest novel- DEATH’S DOOR– A Thriller filled with action, suspense, humor and a touch of romance.

To a writer a newly published book is akin to the birth of a child. The writer spends hours and hours writing, nurturing, rewriting, getting input from First Readers and others and like a child; we then send them off to let them grow and improve and return to us to see what the editors have done. And don’t forget getting the perfect cover designed! I’ll write more about this process at another time, but for now I want to tell you that this book I present to you is a great story that has been professionally prepared just for you—the reader.

Of course, most writers will gush and exclaim about how great their book is—it’s expected. But I have read this book in manuscript form at least 50 times in preparing it for you and I enjoy it each time I read, even while looking for errors. Death’s Door is my fourth published book and I learn more from each manuscript I write. I will make you a promise: Read Death’s Door and you won’t be disappointed. If you don’t like it I will send you another of my works—your choice—at no charge! I don’t expect to give any book away with this claim. And by the way, my Muse is well pleased.

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen. I present to you Death’s Door:

Back cover description:

 When a terrorist’s dirty bomb threatens to contaminate the United States heartland, only pure American courage can disarm and disassemble the threat of Death’s Door. 

New Jersey State Police Detectives Dell Sharpton and Bill Anders have been supporting the state’s Terrorism Task Force by using their Arabic language skills to gain trust and solve crimes within the tightly knit Arab American community.  When officials at the National Security Agency learn of Dell’s remarkable courage and odd but proven ability to “see” the immediate dangers facing his tactical operations team, he and his partner Bill get caught up in a secret government run counter-terrorism mission that leads both men—and the ones they love—directly to Death’s Door. 

Death’s Door is a fast paced thriller with non-stop action, suspense, humor and a touch of romance.

Due to contractual agreement with Amazon Books; Death’s Door is only available as an Ebook through Amazon.com for the next 90 days. As a paperback it is available everywhere—just ask for it by name and author.

Have I told you lately—the readers—that I love you!
