A Mystery/Thriller Bundle – You Name the Price

All Covers Large


You’ll want to download this mystery bundle before the offer disappears! Not only do you decide what you’re going to pay for the books, you can allocate a portion to charity.

There are 8 available titles and they include authors who have reached the New York Times or USA Today Bestseller lists or are mainstays of Amazon’s bestseller lists. You’ll also find an impressive variety of protagonists and situations, but all continue to deliver beyond the initial punch with stories that get readers invested and continually turning the pages. From rogue detectives to tough-as-nails cops, a mother whose son has been kidnapped to rookies meant for something more, struggling FBI agents to savvy criminal investigators, special ops to private eyes, there’s only one conclusion to draw: the criminals out there don’t know what they’re up against.

Blank – Episode 1 Is Here!


And it’s being released at a special price for ‘The Heard’ Only .99 for a limited time

Today is the day and I couldn’t be more excited. Release day is always a big deal and this one is no different. And with the first in the Blank series comes a special introductory price for a limited time. Usually, promo pricing is reserved for later, after the initial flood of readers, but I wanted to continue to do things differently. I wanted to give my loyal readers a chance to enjoy the story at a price that expresses my thanks for supporting me.

I love my peeps and I hope you’ll take advantage of the deal before it ends and tell a few friends who might be reluctant to try a new author.

Blank is a serialized story broken up into shorter novels of approximately 80 – 100 pages. They’re meant to be read in one or two sittings and are complete adventures within themselves, not some whole novel chopped up. People’s lives have become busy and it’s difficult to find time to sit and enjoy something for long periods and this type of story is becoming popular with the hard working folks of the world. I had a blast writing this way and it comes across very well with little cliffhangers at the end of each story.

The release schedule should keep you enthralled with a new episode coming out every 2 to 3 weeks, so expect the next installment around April 16th, 2014.

Here’s where you can get Blank Episode 1:

Barnes & Noble

Here’s the blurb for Blank Episode 1 to give you an idea what it’s all about:

There’s a violence in me.

My name is Lincoln Delabar. I was born without a face. Yes, you heard that right. Smooth, clear skin from my forehead to my chin.

I see the world differently, yet it is still a place that holds wonder. At least most of the time.

With my uniqueness comes a burden. My mind is powerful. Very powerful. And I have an obligation, a purpose, to see things in my own special way. Some of the things I see are frightening.

The evil in this world is beyond anyone’s control. Or so you might think.

There is a violence in me. I’m not afraid. I can control it.

But should I?

Thank you all for your support. It means the world to me.

Be well, and embrace the thrill.


P.S. If you should get two emails regarding this announcement, then you are subscribed to my blog feed via email as well. I apologize as I can’t separate the two. It’s not my intention to flood your inbox with my ramblings, it’s just a byproduct of the technology. Thank you!

I’m proud to show off the cover for my upcoming serialized thriller BLANK. Its simplicity is what makes it stand out and though different than anything I’ve put out before, I really like it. Thanks to David ‘Spanky’ Tyson for the great idea. Midget Magic, baby.

In one sentence, this is what it is about:

“A child born without a face discovers that his mind is a powerful thing, and as he learns to use it, he must decide if the violent side of him will rule his life.”

Stay tuned for Release date announcements and sneak peeks of the books. I’m excited.

Do you ever do anything just to do it?

I was thinking about this the other day and I had to think hard to find the truth in it. When was the last time I did something just to do it? I’m not talking about going fishing, or flying my little RC airplanes, or even going to a movie. I’m talking about doing something nice for somebody without any expectations in return.

I don’t really consider myself a selfish person. Most don’t, but am I a giving one? Do I go out of my way to give the shirt off of my back or the shoes off of my feet to someone in need? Have I ever given something of myself just to give it, without any expectations of a return of even a thank you? I had to think hard. It’s been a while.

And that bothers me.

I know we all get caught up in our lives. Day to day stuff that gets in the way of what really matters. The bills, work, television, the kids’ soccer game, even mowing the lawn, as dreadful of a chore as that is. But what if we even took some of that mundane stuff in our lives and gave someone else an opportunity to get away from it?

I tried it and it was kind of cool. I was mowing my yard, dust and grass flying all around me, my stupid little dust mask on my face and my favorite FSU hat on my head. I’m a sight to see, I know. My neighbor across the street was mowing their’s also, but was struggling with a little push mower in high weeds and turf. She was not having a fun time.

Now, I have this big ‘ol zero-turn radius thingy to mow my one acre lot and it plows through some pretty hefty stuff with ease. Each time I would pass her  as my mower made it’s trek through my yard, I’d see her struggling. So, though I was in  a hurry and really not enjoying the chore, I still drove over there and shut my mower down. I climbed off of it and waved at her. She gave me a look like ‘What the f*%$ does this guy want?’ She walked over.

“That grass is pretty high,” I said, like an idiot.

“It is.”

“That little mower you have there is sure having a hard time.”

“It is.”

“How about I knock it down for you with mine?”

Her face lit up, the smile so big I thought her skin would crack. “That would be awesome.”

“Okay. It won’t take me long.”

I climbed back up on my machine and cranked her up. I had it knocked out in a few minutes as she sat and drank some water. When I was finished, I waved and drove back over to my yard and finished up there. She waved back and shouted something to me, but I didn’t hear. It really didn’t matter what it was, I was just glad to help her. Not only did it take just a few minutes out of my schedule, but it felt pretty good to help her too and gave me a boost for the day.

With that in mind, will I continue to do things like this to get that warm fuzzy feeling again? I’d like to think so, but maybe that’s giving with conditions again. What if she hadn’t really been appreciative or had given me a hard time? Would I still feel all warm and fuzzy?

Probably not, but the point is I would still do it. I like the idea of giving without expectations. The world needs a little more of it around. I’m not trying to bolster me up or brag about being a good neighbor, I just thought it would be cool to share how one little act of kindness can mean a lot to somebody’s day. And if we could all do that, just once, every day, the world would be pretty dang cool.

I’m in.
