I’m not going to toot my own horn about this collection, I’m going to let critically acclaimed author Seumas Gallacher do it for me…

‘…for afficianados of clever, solid, pacy action writing, PATH OF A BULLET is for you… a compilation of great short stories dressed up as a loose calendar of events spins around Ike, an improbable, roustabout hero… ex-Seal, six-feet-five, 275 pounds of muscle, carefree by nature, but caring by inclination… a modern off-white Knight in shining armour, likes his beer, his liquor, and his ladies… most of whom seem to have need of the self-dispensing justice and skills that his past has endowed him with… 

…Ike’s principal source of income comes from heavy duty collection work for a local bookmaker in Florida’s Flagler Beach and St. Augustine, and provides a baseline for the stories…

…Tim Baker’s ear for punchy narrative  runs through this rapid-fire collection, in which a few hand-picked author pals have also contributed… Ike is an enduring character you can’t help but take to, although some of his methods will have you wincing…

~Seumas Gallacher, Author of the Jack Calder crime series

Book Giveaway – Eyewitness Blues

According to Mr. Big (the villain in the 1973 James Bond movie Live and Let Die) “when entering a fiercely competitive field one finds it advisable to give away free samples.”

Sounds like good advice to me – so I’m going to give away some books.

Of course, Mr. Big was giving away heroin in an attempt to corner the market…and the heroin trade is a little more cut-throat than the book business…but I still think it’s a good idea.

Mr Big

So to make a long story short, beginning on October 13 and running through November 13 you can enter for a chance to win one of five signed paperback copies of Eyewitness Blues on Goodreads.

The contest is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. You will have to join Goodreads also – but that’s free and easy – and it’s a good way to find some new authors and books. You can see for yourself by clicking this link.

As I said – I’ll be giving away five copies of my latest novel Eyewitness Blues.

Eyewitness Blues final cover

Eyewitness Blues is the story of Martin Aquino – a down-on-his-luck everyman from Rhode Island who has taken one wrong turn after another on the road of life. The icing on the cake comes when he finds himself up to his eyes in debt with a ruthless mob boss.

In a flash of inspiration Martin decides that the Witness Protection Plan will give him a fresh start with a clean slate.

Problem solved.

Except for one minor detail…he hasn’t witnessed anything.

That’s when things get interesting.

The action starts in Warwick, Rhode Island and takes Martin all the way to the small, beachside community of Flagler Beach, Florida.

So far Eyewitness Blues is very popular with readers and is already getting some great reviews.

One reader said Eyewitness Blues grabs “…readers by the collar, taking them through a merry maze of characters and plot turns before letting go at the end.”

At the very least, I guarantee you it’s worth the five minutes it will take to enter the contest!

Click this link to enter…and I wish you the best of luck.

As always – thank you for reading

Making Noise in the Backseat

In April, 2004 my brother-in-law and I drove from Rhode Island to Florida in a 22 hour non-stop marathon. In order to save us the trouble of thinking of stuff to talk about, we stopped at Cracker Barrel in RI and grabbed a couple of audio books to listen to. We made sure they were action-filled spy stories, hoping they’d keep us awake.

It worked…we stayed awake, listened to 2 good books and returned them to the Cracker Barrel in Florida when we arrived.

Prior to that, my only other experience with audio books was during high school English class when we had to read Shakespeare.

Our teacher was a young woman who, I believe, could still identify with our difficulty in understanding old-timey English. She mercifully allowed us to listen to a recorded version of the story (Romeo and Juliet) which made it much easier for us.

Believe it or not, I have a reason for telling you this stuff…

After six months, I am pleased to announce that my novel Backseat to Justice is finally available as an audio book.

BTJ cover

Backseat is the story of Florida Private Investigator Steve Salem who is hired to tail an unfaithful husband, only to have the husband get executed before his eyes.

Needless to say, he figures his fee is history—until the wife of the slain cheater hires him to solve the murder.

Things take off after that and just when Steve thinks he’s solved the case it takes the most bizarre twist imaginable.

That’s all I’m telling you – if you want to know what happens you’ll have to buy the book.

One more thing about this book – as with the print and e-book versions – half of all the profits are being donated to a Rhode Island based dog rescue organization called Golden Huggs Rescue.

So without further ado – here is the link

Download your copy now and please share this link with your audio-book-loving friends!

As always – Thank you for reading.

Pump It Up e-book now available

I am pleased to announce that my fifth novel, Pump It Up, is now available in e-format (the print version is scheduled for release later this month).

Pump It Up is a fast-paced thriller centered on the world of illegal, underground silicone injections—a world that really exists, although probably not to the extremes I write about!

Pump It Up

Ernie Boudreaux performs back room injections at bargain basement prices to women (or men) looking to enhance their anatomy. When a patient dies on the table Ernie tries to dispose of the body, but doesn’t count on a witness.

Dave Ryan is on vacation in Flagler Beach, Florida and suddenly finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time when he witnesses two people throwing a body into a dumpster. The next thing he knows, he’s sitting on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean chained to an anchor.

Ex-Navy SEAL Ike is just trying to enjoy a quiet evening on his boat with friends—but it isn’t meant to be. Before he can say sex-change operation he finds himself caught in a high-speed, high-stakes adventure with the lives of his friends hanging in the balance.

 

Like all of my books, Pump is a quick, easy read with a few good laughs thrown in as well.

I invite you to enter my version of Flagler Beach and join Ike, Brewski, Didi and Ralphie as they operate on the fringe of legal to keep the community safe for the rest of us.

And if you’re planning a vacation to Flagler Beach, don’t worry…I eat at Finn’s all the time and hardly ever see people running around with guns!!!

Pump It Up can be purchased for $2.49 on Amazon for Kindles and the same price on Smashwords for all other e-readersImage.
