I read it and want to review it. Where do I go?
Thanks in advance for reviews and ratings; indie authors couldn’t survive without them! (Reviews and ratings apply to both print and digital editions…no need to do two.)
In the late nineties, a bad cop killed a good woman and DC Homicide detective Marty Singer got to watch as the murderer walked out of the courtroom a free man.
Twelve years later, the victim’s daughter comes to Marty begging for help: the killer is stalking her now.
There’s just one problem: Marty’s retired…and he’s retired because he’s battling cancer. But with a second shot at the killer–and a first chance at redemption–Marty’s just found A Reason to Live.
A Reason to Live is a full length novel of 88,000 words and includes an excerpt from the second book in the Marty Singer series, Blueblood, due out in Summer 2012.
This is a moment that’s been a long time coming and I have a lot of people to thank for getting met this far. You can read just how many in the Acknowledgements section at the back of the book.
But I also want to thank you, the followers and visitors of this blog, for reading, commenting, and participating in my writing career. It’s what makes things like releasing a novel a real pleasure…and keeps me wanting to do more.
