I am a first time author whose debut novel, "Improved Lies" opened to good reviews. My wife and I and our four big dogs live on the north coast of Jamaica. I drew from a 26 year trial pracitce, which included multiple murder trials, to create a mystery-legal thriller. My struggles as a lifetime 18 handicapper inspired the milieu for murder, acountry club tounament.
Hi Brian, Good to meet you and hope to get to know you better. Will check over your books as well. I just had a traier done for my latest book, A Mothers Torment and hope it helps in the sales. If it does, I'll have one done for the other books I have.....I think it came out pretty good and they did a good job with it. It's on this site and also on www.amotherstorment.com Let me know what you think of it if you get to see it. Shirley
I have two dogs and you have four dogs and I know how much care they need each day. How about a story I heard on radio and you may have heard it too about a lady in Arizona, I believe. A lady lives in a triple wide trailer and she has about 800 dogs...I think I heard that they were mostly small dogs and that she took pretty good care of them. My two keep me on the run during the day and I can't imagine having that many dogs.
We had an instance close by where a couple was trying to take care of 100 dogs and it didn't turn out well. There were many very malnurished and sick.
Just thought I would give you some news from the mainland.
Charles Dickens got a boost from his novels serialization in London papers. Bay City Times is giving "Improved Lies" a similar lift. The paper is running an excerpt each Saturday with podcast read by yours truly. Try a free taste http://blog.mlive.com/baycitytimes_extra/featured_stories/
