Tim Jackson (timwjackson) | 4 comments Hi, All!

I'm seeking readers interested in reviewing my latest novel, Blacktip Island, a comic adventure set on a small Caribbean resort island. I can gift a copy via Amazon, provide a Smashwords coupon code, or send a physical copy - PM me with your preference. Thanks!

About Blacktip Island:

Blacktip Island by Tim W. Jackson

"Inadvertent embezzler Blake Calloway high-tails it to the Caribbean, a step ahead of the Feds and desperate to restart life as an anonymous divemaster in a tropical paradise. On Blacktip Island, though, Blake quickly discovers “tropics” doesn’t mean “paradise,” and rookie boat hands stick out like a reef at low tide.

The locals are quirky: a landlord who swears he’s Fletcher Christian reincarnated, a boss who likes fish better than people, a sloshed resort manager with a sex-crazed wife, a possibly ax-murdering neighbor, and a girlfriend who just might turn Blake in for the reward money. Blake steers a ragged course between them, trying to straighten out the mess he’s made before the cops can track him down and haul him away.

Blacktip Island is an irresistible comedy for anyone who’s ever dreamed of trading the rat race for a hammock under the palm trees."

Tim Jackson (timwjackson) | 4 comments Hi, Rishit,

Thanks for your interest in Blacktip Island. If you live in the United States, Canada or the Caribbean I'd be happy ship a physical review copy to you. If you live in another region I can gift you an e-version of the book via Amazon or Smashwords. Let me know which you would prefer.
