For those of you who have Kindles and who enjoy a good murder/mystery, it's called "Dealing With Tomorrow" and is published under Lynn McMahon Anstead.

Lynn is no other than our own Skunkee so if you have a Kindle, or would like to use a free App on your PC you will be able to read her first book.

To get the App search the Amazon website for Kindle for PC and it ought to come up for you.

And the beauty of the Kindle is, I am now the owner of a copy "just like that" - I love my Kindle. Hopefully I'll like the book too, and I have almost finished the one I am reading so was just starting to think about what to read next.

Is there a way to get it (for a price) for those who do not have a Kindle? I would gladly buy it in paper, but will not read non-paper books. smile

Thank you all - you are all very sweet. Rowena I am so flattered and I do hope you like it.
Postcards I'm sorry but there isn't a paper version. I think there is an app for your computer, but no paper copy will likely exist.

Oh well done, it is so hard to get books published if you are a new author.

Did you know it is possible to self-publish on Kindle? Worth considering for anyone who has a completed novel but no publisher yet.

Congratulations, Skunkee.

I have just downloaded it to my iPad.
I'm going on holiday next weekend so it will be waiting for me. You are in good company on my holiday reading list: along with Lee Child, Albert Simon, David De Lee, Robert Stelijes, Lawrence Block and Nelson DeMille.
(And I'm taking an old fashioned Gerald Seymour paperback for those times when the stewardess says "switch off all electronic equipment now".

Hi all,
Just thought I'd let anyone who was interested know that my second book is now available on Kindle. It's called 'Missing My Mark' and has the same characters as the first book.
Book 3, 'Twin Harvest', which I am dusting off and polishing up, is a very different read than the first two. It's much darker, more like 'Criminal Minds' and 'Silence of the Lambs'.
It won't be available for a few months though.
Cheers

You know, I feel just awful. I never downloaded the first book because I was having problems with the Kindle on my phone and them I promptly forgot about it. HOWEVER, I bought a Kindle Fire recently and now I have downloaded both of your books. After I finish the current one I'm reading, I'll get right to reading yours. Congratulations!
