My new novel, Snap Factor, is now available on Kindle. The story and characters should resonate with anyone who has worked for a difficult boss. I would love to get some reviews and reactions from readers. Here's a summary:

Too frequently, we see stories of a frustrated employee picking up a gun to seek revenge. As we probe the murder in Snap Factor we expose the pressures that can build up in the modern workplace until someone snaps.

In Snap Factor, a washed up NYPD detective, "Mac" McCormick, confronts this human resources nightmare head on. His life of easy suburban cases is upended when a corporate vice president, is gunned down in a sniper-style attack.

Because this case doesn't fit the standard profile of an angry employee walking in with a blazing gun, the detective first thinks this is a professional hit. But as he discovers the workplace is literally a boiling cauldron of hate and fear of the maniacal senior vice president, he begins to suspect this is an act of workplace violence. To him, none of the VP's co-workers are beyond suspicion because they are victims of extreme ridicule, bullying, mocking, and even sexual harassment.

Mac has to throw out any preconceptions of a deranged employee as he uncovers the shooter's methodical planning and sophisticated ballistics; a sniper's bullet so novel it could only have come from a secret government program. The unique rifle round attracts the attention of the FBI and builds the pressure on Mac to solve the case before the feds take control.

By the time Mac discovers who fired the shot, we gain new insight into the explosive social dynamics that can make the modern corporate workplace a ticking time bomb.

Reading Snap Factor will help anyone who has suffered with a bad boss realize they are not alone. The book includes a corporate survival discussion guide that can be a great tool for workplace training and discussion groups.

"Having taught corporate management for 22 years, the personalities in Snap Factor were right on. An exciting and very readable novel!"-Kevin Reynolds, retired management instructor, George Washington University

"A believable story of a workplace that holds the reader's interest. It will resonate with anyone who has worked under a bad boss."-Phil Bowie, award winning mystery writer.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

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, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--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.

--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.
