Harm’s Way enters Top 10 in hard-boiled mystery at Amazon

6 Sep


It’s a mini-milestone! HARM’S WAY has just entered the Top 10 in Amazon’s hard-boiled mystery category. Originally published by St. Martin’s Press in 1992, I revised it extensively in 2012 (see backstory here) and republished it with Amazon and Smashwords.

Since December of last year I’ve offered it FREE on Smashwords to allow people to sample my writing, and thus promote my three other mystery thrillers. During this period, Amazon has toggled the price of Harm’s Way back and forth between free and $0.99. To date, there’ve been almost 15,000 downloads.

So if you like a very fast-paced mystery with a dose of hard-boiled action and dialog, and you don’t get your knickers in a knot over the occasional references to astrology (see that other story here), then scoop up a copy sooner than later.

Have a great day. As for me, I’m celebrating over breakfast with mimosas and — what else? — hard-boiled eggs !
