Fool’s Gold Rush is coming – Doomed to Repeat is FREE!!

Remember me?

It’s been a while, I know.

About five months to be specific.

The last blog post I wrote was entitled “How I Spent My Corona Isolation (so far)” and I posted it on April 18th.

At the time I, like many of you I’m sure, thought this virus thing would be over in a couple of months and life would get back to normal.

So much for that – right?

Here it is, September, and any hope for a return to “normal” is wishful thinking to say the least.

So – what have you been up to? (Feel free to share your experiences in the comments below)

As for me – I tried to put the time to good use.

Aside from doing a little SCUBA diving (there are no viruses under water) I also managed to finish my latest novel.

It has been read and critiqued by my beta readers, edited (twice) and is being formatted for release as we speak. The only task remaining is the cover.

The working title of the book had been “Rising Tide” – but I was never thrilled with it. After lots of thought I have renamed it Fool’s Gold Rush.

In this story Ike, Brewski and friends are dealing with three knuckleheads who come up with the brilliant idea of stealing two-million dollars’ worth of gold during a Cat 4 hurricane.

Coincidence that its release will coincide with hurricane season? You decide.

As usual it’s a pretty fast-paced adventure with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humor.

What else would you expect from me?

So – in celebration of the fact that the release of my twelfth novel (A Baker’s Dozen I guess you could call it) is imminent I am going to give away some more books – very much like I did back at the beginning of the COVID situation.

Starting off this round of giveaways will be my last novel – Doomed to Repeat – free from Sept2 thru Sept 6 (kindle version only. Sorry)

Who knows…maybe things will be back to normal before I go through the entire lineup this time!

(Yeah – I don’t think so either)

 

As always – thank you for reading

    And what I’ve been doing during the pandemic, besides beta reading and critiquing for friends, is to continue my Authors-Readers International series of promotions for authors like you, Tim!
