Hi Zach, your offer sounds like a paperback. Though I would love to read your sequel, Cachibache in exchange for an honest review, I don't read paperbacks any longer, only eBooks. If I'm mistaken, and you're offering an eBook for review, I would love See Full Answer

“Anyone is capable of anything given the right set of circumstances”
Zach Fortier, Curbchek

“karma is an evil bitch with a very long memory.”
Zach Fortier, Landed On Black

“Kids that are outside the societal norms look for a place to fit in, a way to be indoctrinated and accepted. Not because they have bad parents, or dysfunctional families, but because humans on a gut level need the traditions, rituals, and myths that used to be a part of primitive culture. We have replaced them with laws, lawyers, and court systems. The modern day thought is that right and wrong are black and white, written in a court document or a book of codes of law set down by the legislature. It is not passed on by accepted norms and ethos.”
Zach Fortier, I am Raymond Washington: The only authorized biography of the original founder of the Crips

“Anyone is capable of anything given the right set of circumstances”
Zach Fortier, Curbchek

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”
Frederick Douglass

“The best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.”
Ernest Hemingway

“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.”
Benjamin Franklin

“Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.”
Frederick Douglass

Eyehavenofilter Thanks for the add.....more books for me to read!

message 8: by Teri

Teri Hi Zack - Thanks for accepting my friends request :)

message 7: by Greer

Greer Noble Well Zach it looks like we could enjoy each other's books! Only mine are fiction and I wasn't in the police force :-) I was in the middle of a bush war though and played a trivial part as a police reservist - small fry compared to you:-) In the light of this you'd probably get a good giggle out of mine.. so would love to challenge you to read them. I'm running a little competition for a free copy Checkmate which you might like to try: Veiled Madness by Greer Noble Would love your comments.

message 6: by Zoë

Zoë Sharp Hi Zach. Thanks for Friending me. I must check out your books - sound like a blast :)

message 5: by R.S.

R.S. Lentin Thank you for the friend invite. Have a great week!

Collette Scott Hi there Zach,

Nice to meet up here. Hope all is well :D

Susannah Morgan Hi Zach!

Thanks very much for the friend invite.
All the Very Best,

P.S. My 2 novels are FREE until midnight tonight. All e-readers.

P.P.S. I did not do the Kindle thing simply because the people at Smashwords have been so good to me and I would have had to pull my books there for the Kindle Free promotion. Smashwords downloads to ALL e-readers.
