"suspense that will have you glued to your seats" BookPleasures

Fire Season is an old school aviation adventure. When the communities around the quiet town of Brooke's Vale are threatened by fire, Matt and his flying club volunteer to assist in fire prevention. Unfortunately crop sprayers, no matter how experienced, are not trained fire fighters, and the situation rapidly escalates.

With the town itself now threatened, Matt grounded and in shock, and an inexperienced secondary pilot left in charge, they'll have to find a miracle - or fly one.

    Welcome to KindleBoards, VH, and congratulations on your book! 

    (If you've gotten this welcome before, it's just as a matter of housekeeping. We like to put a copy of the "welcome letter" in each book thread.  It doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it just helps us know that you know the rules.)

    A brief recap of our rules follows:

    --We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

    --Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information.  You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

    --While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days.  Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

    --We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link.  Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

    --Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows.  This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles!  Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post.  For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
    Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

    All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum.  Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

    Oh, and one more thing:  be sure to check out the index threads at the top of the Book Bazaar. . . .there are details there about how you can be listed so that our readers can find you.

    Thanks for being part of KindleBoards!  Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the welcome. I've just got back from the book launch, so I'm absolutely exhausted, but hopefully it raised some interest. There is also a charity deal on for the Kindle edition of Fire Season with Vulcan to the Sky who run and support the only remaining Avro Vulcan, XH558, where the profit from copies sold will go to them for a limited period.

    Fire Season Launch offer - now on Kindle for 99p

    For Easter, Fire Season by VH Folland is now 99p on Kindle on Amazon.co.uk. For US and European readers, it has been similarly reduced on Amazon.com and Amazon.de.

    "Thought provoking, emotional and compassionate, this is a book I could read again. A recommended read." Clover Hill Book Reviews

    The story of a remote airstrip in Fire Season, the novel has been well received. Following the busy paperback launch at ExCel, the Kindle edition is now following suit with this promotion which marks Ragged Angel Ltd's first venture into e-books outside their standard game lines.

    A new review from Bookpleasures, echoed on Amazon.com:

    "Thanks to the expertly voiced narration, the author's story-telling gifts are strongly in evidence, particularly in his masterly evocation of time, place and events that will haunt readers long after the book has been put to rest."

    An interview is to follow shortly.
