Okay, this is the big announcement you’ve been waiting for. Or maybe it isn’t.
The Mushroom Shift, the police novel I wrote way back when during the mists of 1985, is officially available for you to read. You can get the Amazon Kindle version here, or for those of you who still love the feel, smell, and tactile experience of a real paper book, you can get the trade paperback version from Amazon here or from me through Amazon here.
(A Trade Paper version of A Death of Honor is also available here, but is not yet available on Amazon for some reason. Call it delay by dinosaur?)
The Kindle version went online in the middle of December, but I wanted to wait to make the official announcement until the paper version was available. Of course, if you’d liked my Facebook Fan Page, then you already knew about all of this stuff weeks ago.
If you’re interested in the book, make sure you read the propaganda I wrote about it before buying it. The book is not at all politically correct (but since when are cops PC?) and is rather profane (but since when do cops talk like choirboys?). If you decide to take the plunge, I think you’ll be rewarded with a novel that contains some of my best writing – not bad since it was only the second novel I wrote (I have a theory on why it turned out that way, but that’s a topic for a future post).
There you have it. The chronicle of Clarence Raymond Monmouth, Badlands County Sheriff’s Department, ready to come to your home and entertain you in whatever format you choose.
So buy early and often. And remember… I get paid whether you read the book or not!
Alright. I have been a fan of JCF for over 20 years. We talk occasionally on facebook. Do not buy into his self effacing talk. If you like his other stuff, you are going to love this. In fact, having read most of what he writes, this was instantly moved to #2.
Don’t read the propaganda, don’t pass go, don’t collect $200. Buy the book.
Full disclosure: I did some of the editing, and if he sells a million copies, he will buy me a 911. So tell your friends to buy it too.
Well… you heard the man…
