Welcome to KindleBoards, Fred, and congratulations on your book!
Please note that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.
A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference. )
--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).
--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
--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. . . follow the directions there to be listed.
Ace is on the run from everyone! He's running from a busted Witness Protection Program assignment, an international collection of gangsters and arms-merchants he p*ssed off working undercover, and worst of all-from his own scarred self-image and the nightmares that haunt him.
After two lonely years on the road he risks a short visit with his old friend, Granville Tubbs, who lives in the sleepy small town of Ferris' Bluff, Arkansas. He hasn't even had a tingle that anyone has been on his trail for almost a year. What could go wrong in a few days?
Plenty, it turns out. But some things go right, too…shotgun ambushes aside.
The ultimate loner, Ace is soon brought under the spell of the quirky small town and its residents. Some are funny down-home characters you just want to hug. Some are crafty and mean as junk-yard dogs.
I don't want to spoil any of the story for you, so all I can do is ask is that you read the samples available and if you like them, cough up a whopping 99 cents (on sale for a short time so don't dawdle too long!) for your Kindle copy of Ferris' Bluff.
Oh, and check out both the Kindle US and UK reviews! I'm honored and humbled with what folks are saying.
Just to get you started, here's a taste of the opening chapter:
The roller coaster ride through the heart of the Ouachita Mountains on the two-lane twisty goshdarm no-shoulder snake of a road was scenic as all hell-but it had been a brutal frightening thing.
Regiments of towering deep-green pines slashed through with scarred gray-white granite wounds and mystical fog shrouded mountainsides demanded his attention. Dark shadowed valley views beckoned. The vista was like a siren's song-beautiful and haunting, a soul-soothing panorama, primordial…and d*mn near deadly.
He barely survived the life-or-death battle between the lure of the bewitching scenery and the sudden switchbacks and cliff-side curves. A shaggy big-eared deer played chicken with him. That was exciting-in an adrenaline spiked, holy-sh**, gravel slinging kind of way. A mommy hauling *ss in a mini-van full of kids, hell-bent for somewhere, wasn't scared a bit by the cliffs or the deer or anything, it seemed. She laid on the horn, yelling at him to pull over and get the hell out of the way.
Where? Off the d*mn mountain side?
And then, as if God flipped the scenery switch, the land and his heart rate leveled out. The mini-van mommy gave him the finger when she sped past.
Ferris' Bluff, a suspense filled thriller with a July-hot romance tucked inside!
Thanks for taking a look
