"Good point, Charles. It could be fun though so far the FBI is just a minor player in my writing. for me, it's more interesting to have the protagonist be less predictable. But this file was just a hoot."

Charles Harvey replied to Lucie Smoker's discussion Blotted out FBI file
"I wonder would that be legal if you built an entire book around such file. I know you would have to make up fictional names. But that would be cool"

DISTORTION #14 in Kindle Murder Mysteries

I'm so grateful to Buzz Books USA and my entire community for pushing my first book, DISTORTION, up the ladder on Amazon. It was just featured in Ereader News Today and was the focus of a grassroots FB campaign. All from a tiny publisher. I'm so grateful.
