If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you probably know that in my spare time I like to write short stories and mystery/thriller novels. In fact, my second thriller (Pilate’s Key) is coming out next month (visit my Facebook page for updates). It’s the second in what will be a trilogy of adventures featuring the hapless John Pilate and his imaginary pal Simon. (Hey, the reviews are pretty good!)
So, if you haven’t read the first book, Pilate’s Cross–and you’re worried you won’t dig the new book unless you read the first one–I have good news. You can get 25% off the paperback. Just use the coupon code BUYMYBOOK305 at the link below. This coupon expires December 14, 2011. It also makes a nice gift for the readers in your circle of friends and family, if I say so myself.
If you prefer ebooks, no problem–you can get Pilate’s Cross for only 99 cents on Amazon!
So, this Holiday Season, enjoy a cheap thrill from yours truly. (Did I mention it makes a great gift?)
