$0.99
Such a Deal!



I am proud to announce the third novel in the Detective Tony Alfano thriller set, 
CHICAGO FIX

It’s 1933 Chicago, the Century of Progress Fair draws over a million people a week to the city. And not all of these people are looking for fun. It’s the politics, the night life, the rackets, and the mob that draw them. Does the city turn away from this evil and dissipation – hardly. Often, they are willing participants. Detective Tony Alfano, a righteous cop in an unholy land, is the corrupt mayor’s sword of truth and justice.

Pre-orders until December 31, 2018. It’s on Amazon for only $0.99.

Click on Tony and he'll take you there.

Click me baby!

ONE STAR OUT OF FIVE

Well this is a first, and sadly probably not the last. My coming of age novel, The Cherry Pickers, got a ONE STAR review - - - and I'm thrilled. This is what the review said:
This had the potential of being a great story. Then a little over halfway it had to bring a homosexual relationship into the mix. Also some weird non Biblical evolution bs but I can overlook some ignorance in a novel. Trying to "normalize" a homosexual relationship. Ended the story for me.

Two slaps in the review, one for the "normalized relationship" and the other for some unstated slant on evolution (no idea about this one, but I'm intrigued). I've received many tearful reviews and letters about this novel, how it affected my readers and made deep, long lasting impressions. For many it was a return to their youth, to family, to a time almost forgotten. It's not sugary, or gooey, but an honest look at one summer in the life of a fourteen year old boy and the dying of another man - an honest man.
It's sad that we approach life in ways that only substantiate what we believe, and not take a stroll on paths not normally taken. And since I know the person who made the review downloaded a free Kindle copy, then felt it necessary to post this very personal (their's of course) review, I'm saddened.
I read dozens of books from many genres every year, I look for the challenge that the writer imposed on themselves, and I look for the humanity (sometimes dark, sometimes enlightening), but always human.
My fist is held high for the ONE STAR review.

Thanks to All

Thanks to all of you for downloading your free copy of 12th Man For Death. The promotion was a huge hit, over 2500 copies of the book were downloaded from Amazon. And almost 50 other books in the Sharon O'Mara series were also downloaded.

If you would be so kind to sign into my mail list that would be even better. I'm trying to get to 5000 names and I'm woefully short. Once you sign in looks for special treats later int he year, who know what it might be.

I'm also announcing the release date for the next Alfano thriller, Chicago Fix. It will be published as an e-book on December 11. Pre-orders will be soon. I'll let you know.

Saigon Red is available for pre-order so click the image on the right and get it. It will magically appear on your device March 6, 2019.

All else is good. Sfi-Fi novel is through initial production and will now go into deep space looking for a publisher. The next Sharon O'Mara is in editing, pub date to be announced this fall.

Just a few requests please:

Please post a review for any of my books, this is so important these days to independent publishers.

Please buy a copy and fall into the worlds of Sharon O'Mara, Tony Alfano, and Howie Smith.


More to come . . . . .
