The process has taken longer than I expected. Last week I was told by Kindle Press that it had been sent to the layout folks to format for the Kindle. My guess is that within a week it will be available for pre-order and those folks who were kind enough to nominate Ant Farm in the Kindle Scout process will receive their free books at that time. As soon as they put up the preorder button, I'll make the print version available as well (it's all ready to go.)

I enjoy the interplay and tension between Eve's cop role and Rourke's extra-legal past and current business dealings. They are two strong characters, independent, but linked in so many ways. And even after a gazillion books in the series, they can still get it on.(less)

A month ago my blog Free or Not to Free—THAT is the question addressed my assumptions about what would happen when I offered the Kindle version of the first in my Seamus McCree series for five days for free. Here is a summary from that blog:
My hypothesis goes something like this: For every 1,000 downloads, say 10% read the book. Of those, say 10% become fans and read the entire series. At curr... Read more of this blog post »

I chose this book as my monthly free Kindle Read based on its description. Lucky decision for me as I really enjoyed the story. I would have given it five stars except the prose sometimes got in the way of the story.

It's well written. It's relevant.
