Timothy Smith Hello Sean,

I see that you gave a high rating to The Quiet American. Goodreads’s synopsis of it opens with the line: “The Quiet American is a terrifying portrait of innocence at large.” The same could be said for my novel, Cooper’s Promise, the coming of age story of Cooper Chance who’s ended up in a darker heart of Africa than Joseph Conrad could have imagined.

Cooper's Promise tells the story of a soldier who vows to save a young girl who's been trafficked to redeem himself for another promise he couldn’t keep. It's exciting, fast-paced, and literary at the same time. It was twice shortlisted for the prestigious Faulkner-Wisdom Competition, and the screenplay adaptation has won numerous grand prizes and first places, including Best Original Drama and Best Male Lead.

Here’s a link to the Nook version:

Thanks, and keep on reading -- it gives us writers hope.
