Hello,

Please check out my new book Megalodon Lives.

Here's the Amazon product description:

In the chaotic, racially charged summer of 1992, a failing New York aquarium attempts a bold effort to capture a Great White Shark to lure more customers. The crew takes advantage of a terrible tragedy to capture a fantastic beast, a Carcharodon Megalodon. The supposedly extinct ancestor of the Great White is very much alive. Finding the monster was only half the battle.

A fun summertime read.

While I love the Jaws-type shark novels, I did something different here. The summer of 1992 was a tough one for the United States including racial tensions after the riots in Los Angeles, a Presidential election year and Hurricane Andrew. I attempted to capture the feeling of that summer in my, well, fish out of water story. There are plenty of two-legged monsters reacting to the presence of the shark.

Thanks,
Flash

Welcome to KindleBoards, Flash, 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 a great week of sales! Megalodon Lives is currently ranked
#54 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Fiction > Drama > United States!

Here's an excerpt:

"What are you doing? You idiot! Give me that damn thing!" I grabbed the scoop out of Grimshaw's hand. He looked up in surprise and pushed his glasses back up.
"What does it look like I'm doing? I'm throwing the chum out!"
"Do you remember me telling you to?"
"What's the problem? You said chum attracts sharks so I threw the chum in the water. I don't want to spend the rest of my life on this boat looking for a shark so I decided to start. I should be asking you what you've been doing while I've been working!"
"You moron!" I pointed to the slick. "Do you see that line in the water? That's the chum you've been throwing out. Do you see where it leads?"
"Over there. So what?"
"That's Jones Beach, you jackass! There are going to be thousands of kids on that beach today and you attracted every shark in the area right to them! That's what!"
"I didn't know! How was I supposed to know?"
"You weren't supposed to know! That's why I'm in charge! From now on you do what I say! Understand?"
"Yeah."
"Good. Now pray nothing happens on that beach today."

Check out Megalodon Lives today! Only $2.99! Thanks!
