Bottom line: free on Kindle today and tomorrow.
Next to the bottom line: I’m cruisin’ hard for reviews and think you’ll enjoy this enough to give me some stars.
BAILIN’ started life as a screenplay. But if there is one thing harder to sell than a novel, it’s a movie script. So, on the advice of TVwriter.com guru Larry Brody, I started “reverse adapting” my scripts—novelizing the plays—and this one has worked out the best. What started as an attempt to get a quickie ebook blossomed out and I like the writing and augmented characterization a lot.
The cover subtitle “Comic Crime Romance” gives you an idea (though it’s not a “real romance” in the RWA sense—just two lovebirds working it out while robbing banks and trying to collect for the embezzler they rescued/kidnapped. Cole and Bunny, smooching their way across Texas and parts of Mexico with help from some rocket-flying bike bums. And much cuter than Bonnie and Clyde.
I’m seeing this book as a breakthrough thing for me, an attempt to get on the boards with something of wider appeal. And don’t flip out when I say this, because I’m a huge fan of the man, but I think BAILIN’ would go over well with fans of Donald Westlake.
My first task, of course, is building up a body of reviews and I hope you’ll help me out with that. Especially since you can get BAILIN’ for FREE today and tomorrow, Feb 21 and 22, on the amazon Kindle store:http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AVZJXGG
Thanks for your attention. I hope you’ll grab a copy of BAILIN’ and enjoy it’s blend of wild action, financial hanky-panky. humor and lovey-dovey.
