Dust Up, coming April 2016

Dust Up, coming April 2016

description: Join me Thursday night at Inkwood NJ, a brand-new indie bookstore in Haddonfield. I'll be doing a meet and greet with local book clubs, and hosting a special early release of Crazy Love You in paperback -- where you can pick up a signed copy before it officially goes on sale (Aug. 11th.) I'm really looking forward to visiting the store and hope to see you there!
Jon said: A great new book and a great new book store! What's not to like?
Deadout by Jon McGoran
"What an intriguing subject to package into a thriller novel! I must admit, I did not know how significant bees were to the environment, but by the time I was done reading Dead Out, I feel quite impressed with what I had learned.

I enjoyed Jon McGo..." Read more of this review »
Deadout by Jon McGoran
"I think I liked McGoran's first book, Drift, a bit better but, in Deadout, his likable character Doyle Carrick is still figuring out his relationship and stumbling onto eco-disasters. This time, it's the potential demise of the bee colonies on Mar..." Read more of this review »
Deadout by Jon McGoran
"In this second book featuring many of the same cast of characters, Deadout, is tighter than the first book, Drift. Detective Doyle Carrick, returns as the protagonist and is the typical tough cop that has a heart too. This time he takes on the ver..." Read more of this review »

A gripping tale of a fantastically imagined realm populated by fully realized characters who pull you in and whisk you along as they learn the stunning truth of the world they thought they’d known. Great read.

Zoë Sharp Hi Jon

Thanks for Friending me. How did you get on with the Cormac McCarthy? And how did work on DRIFT go?

Jon I hope so, but I don't know. Depends on how Freezer Burn sells, but it can be tough getting the word out. Right now I'm working on a stand-alone thriller called DRIFT. I just finished the first draft, so I'm afraid it won't be out for a little while yet.
