I’m head-down in the plotting/writing of my next SEPTEMBER & SHADOW THRILLER #7! Lots of “schtuff” keeps sidetracking me from finishing DARE OR DIE, but hope to get the next story into your hands this spring. Meanwhile, here’s a reminder that I’ve lined up some more great books for your reading pleasure. If you love crime and thriller stories with dogs (hey, you’re reading mine, right?) check out Emily Kimelman’s gritty Sydney Rye Mysteries, too. Oh my doG, tail-waging grrrreat fun.
The tagline of the series gets me every time: Sydney Rye and her dog exact justice with a vengeance. The dog doesn’t die, but the bad guys do.
I get that question a lot about my September & Shadow thriller series, too. So I borrowed (stole?!) the line from Emily and include it whenever folks ask. I also loved what she says about the dog “aging out” in the book…that it’s FICTION so the dog can live forever! (Heck, I just may steal that, too…don’t hate me, Emily!).
New Direct Sales Option
Emily is a fellow independent author with MANY more books in her series than mine. She sells directly to readers from her own bookstore, which means she can offer amazing deals not available on Amazon or anywhere else. The books are delivered by BookFunnel which many of you are familiar with already. Emily recently started an author affiliate program so fellow writers (like me!) can recommend her work and earn a percentage. Yee-haw!
I just attended a fantastic webinar with Emily, her biz partner Jamie Davis, and the founder of Book Funnel Damon Courtney. The innovative book delivery system means YOU, the readers, get books at a discount and EARLIER than from other platforms, while the author keeps control of …well, everything.
So I’m seriously thinking about following in Emily’s paw-steps with my thrillers. And with the pet nonfiction. That won’t happen for a while, but if you’re interested it just might get me off my ass-ets if’n ya commented about your interest.
But more about the Sydney Rye stories…
(Note: You should not read the Sydney Rye books if you have issues with “strong” language, sex out of wedlock, or LGBTQ+ characters. 👈 Top 3 things Emily’s one-star reviews complain about.)
Sydney Rye Series
Of course, I would never recommend a book I didn’t think you’d love! But it’s pretty awesome that when you take advantage of this offer, you’ll be supporting Emily and me directly. Now for the best part…
