2018 Maxy Awards, Podcast, busy month, exciting month.

It has been an interesting few days for me. The Tracker won an award and that was awesome. The Maxy award is an annual award dedicated to awarding only excellence for indie and self-published authors. My publisher, Black Rose Writing, entered me and to my surprise and happiness, I won. The award seal is now on all print and ebook copies sold. If you want to more about the Maxy award backstory, because it is heartwarming, you can read about it here: Maxy.

Then the fine people at Literary License Podcast invited me on their show to talk about Jaws the book, Jaws the movie and my two novels and part of the process I go through writing them. Click on the link to see more. It gets interesting and the hosts, Keith, Jon, and Vicki are very entertaining.

So…cool. It’s nice to be surprised by life. The good surprises anyways.

Well, I’m here and always available to engage in conversations so, leave a comment, contact me here or on Goodreads or Twitter.

Have a great day.

John

The worst social media person ever…

Is me. So, it is clear I am unable to, or won’t, get better utilizing social media. I know I should and I could say I have a full time job, four kids and blah-blah-blah, but in the end they are just excuses. I could and I should and maybe one day I will. And maybe today is that day! But probably not.

This post is for the purpose of shameless self-promotion.

DOLL HOUSE, on Goodreads has generated 1,058 ratings and it is still a four star.

On Amazon.com it has received 294 ratings and is rocking a four and a half star. Holy hell!

Because of the reception of DOLL HOUSE, my publisher, Black Rose Writing offered me a contract for my second book. And here it is…

Oh, and for those of you wondering, it is not a sequel to DOLL HOUSE. It is a standalone novel.

Take care.

Clues and Reviews

Screen Shot 2017-01-04 at 5.43.21 PMConfession time: I am a bossy book reader.  I read books and  then force people around me to read them make subtle and kind recommendations to others.

I cannot help it, I want to share the book love. I want to chat about what I’ve read.

My “Hey, You!  Read This!” feature will hone in books I have read and would recommend in different genres and subgenres.

This week, I have decided to kick off my newest feature with one of my favourite sub genres in the thriller category: abduction thrillers. Call me crazy, but I am a sucker for an abduction thriller.  Anything that involves a kidnapping, a psycho holding several people in their basement or people rising like a phoenix from the ashes to wreak havoc on their captors have me pretty much glued to the pages.

Interested?

Keep reading to see what made my top picks….

Lots of stuff going on…

Holy cow! John’s posting something? It’s true. I neglect this blog with irregular regularity. I have no excuses other than a full time job, four kids, one of whom has a job and the other three are active in sports and working on my next book, but yeah, I could actually make time…I suppose.

Anyways, I’m writing this because lots of awesome people have been enjoying my book, talking about it and sharing it with their friends. If you happen to be one these people: thank you.

To business. A blog called With Love for Horror Books, has reviewed my book and put it on their site. During this time there is a free giveaway for my book. Three ebooks, one paperback and one paperback signed by me. So, if you wanna, check it out and enter to win here:

Secondly, the fine Goodreads group Psychological Thrillers have chosen my book as the June book of the month! For real! On May 30th, 2017, I will be live on their thread so if you have any questions, save them. I will post the time when it is known.

Thanks. Have an excellent day.
