I’m pleased and excited to announce the publication of my third novel, TIME LOST. The actual book “launch” – promotional campaign, etc. – is scheduled for early October, but the book is quietly available now in Amazon stores world-wide. You can pick it up as an e-book for $2.99 or in paperback for $12.99 USD. Or you can wait for the “launch”, when it will be free for a couple of days. (I’ll let you know when that happens.)
TIME LOST was born from a chance encounter one Saturday morning in Montreal. I have a part-time job as an instructor for prospective taxi drivers, and that day a young woman sauntered into my class who bore a striking resemblance to some-one I knew from another life years ago. She didn’t just look like my old girlfriend – she talked like her and acted like her. It was uncanny. And it set me thinking: what if…
Eventually, beginning with that experience that day, TIME LOST took shape. It’s a mystery and a love story. It’s also a look back at the Sixties, which was a hell of a time to be young and alive. I think it’s the best book of the three I’ve written so far.
As you know, my second novel, FLASH DRIVE, was quite successful. More than 11,000 readers downloaded the book, and so far it’s picked up 119 ratings and 49 reviews on Amazon and Goodreads in three countries. The average rating everywhere is more than 4 stars out of five. I’m hoping this new book will also find an audience.
Because that’s what it’s about for me at this stage in my life: reaching an audience. I’m not dreaming of building a career as an author. I don’t care if I make any money with my stuff. (I’d prefer not to lose money, of course.) If I find some readers, and they write a few kind reviews, that’s reward enough.
So that’s it for me. I hope you’ll like TIME LOST. If you do, I hope you’ll find the time to post a review online. And thanks in advance for your encouragement.
