I suffer from the opposite affliction: too many book ideas and not enough time to write them all. I attribute this to an overactive imagination and it is also the reason that I am putting out 6 suspense novels in 2015-2016. These six books are all suspense novels that have been thoroughly edited, vetted, and previously handled by my two literary agents (Cherry Weiner Literary Agency and James Fitzgerald Literary Agency), but I am putting them out independently in 2015 and 2016. Who says that the glacial pace of modern fiction publishing has to be the status quo?(less)

“Calling themselves the Slush Pile Brigade as a nod to the unsolicited writings sent to publishing houses, four friends take on the publishing industry and get caught up in dangerous events beyond their control in Samuel Marquis's The Slush Pile Brigade. This high-energy, rollicking misadventure will change the way you look at the publishing industry forever. The plot--complete with car chases and the requisite gun play--is unpredictable and sometimes turns violent; twists and turns and counterturns abound. So, too, does the humor. Numerous references to classic movies, songs, and literature are sprinkled throughout...The dialogue is superb, especially the rat-a-tat round robin responses given when the Slush Pile Brigade members are in discussion. Be prepared to never look at the publishing world in the same way again."
Foreword Reviews - Five Stars (******)”
Foreword Reviews Magazine

“Blind Thrust' kept me up until 1 a.m. two nights in a row. I could not put it down. An intriguing mystery that intertwined geology, fracking, and places in Colorado that I know well. Great fun.”
Colorado Governor Roy R. Romer

“Samuel Marquis's earth-shattering thriller, Blind Thrust, excels at making a mystery story, with geology as background, an exciting yarn. With believable, intelligent characters, there is a fine thriller on these pages that could shake things up.
--Foreword Reviews - Four Stars (****)”
Foreword Reviews Magazine

“Blind Thrust makes good use of Marquis' background as a professional geologist. It is the novel's characters, however, that really stand out. Charles Quantrill is far from a cardboard villain, and as for the heroes, Joe and John Higheagle have a particularly endearing rapport. For suspense fans who enjoy science mixed with their thrills, the novel offers page-turning pleasures.
--BlueInk Review”
BlueInk Review

“Twists, turns and double crosses in literary theft quickly expand to threaten the globe in: THE SLUSH PILE BRIGADE. At its core, the book is a solid thriller. It has clearly defined stakes and goals for the main characters. Marquis has laid the groundwork as a thriller writer and hopefully his following novels build up a James Patterson-esque empire. A promising debut from an up-and-coming thriller writer."
