So, here’s the thing…

On August 13, 2019, Combustible Punch will be hitting shelves. To make this new thriller a real smash, I need your help to break through the summer noise.

Interested in helping?

If you vow, right hand raised to the heaven above, to write an honest review on Amazon or Goodreads, I will give you an Advanced Reading Copy / Advanced Review Edition (ARC or ARE) for your reading pleasure.

Here's how it works:

#1 Sign up.

#2 I send you the digital version for review.

#3 Read the novel.

#4 After you Leave Your Review, Amazon or Goodreads or both, I send you a signed paperback copy.

Pretty simple.

Before you raise your hand, please keep in mind that this thriller is about a serial killer. Its content is adult. There are naughty words and evil deeds you should never try to emulate or copy. If you are sensitive to bad people, sexy talk, and curse words that include variations on four letters, please do not sign up and tell people it was too vulgar.

Thank you for getting this far. Thank you for considering this ARC. Thank you for your continued support of my work.

Rick Philips isn’t a fighter – but he is a survivor

Haunted by memories of a high school shooting, not even the bottle can wash away the gnawing guilt and creeping feelings of inadequacy that batter Rick’s conscience daily. 

His life has been a mess of broken marriages, writer’s block, terrible choices, and the morbid pity of others.

When he meets Harriet at a writer’s conference, the record doesn’t scratch as he falls back – only this time, he may not get up.

Harriet Bristol Wheeler is a dark temptress – and self-confessed serial killer

Harriet has no problem killing – and even fewer issues blending back into the background after the act with the cool, calculating eye of a practiced social chameleon.

Manipulative, unpredictable, and exceptionally intelligent, she’s Rick’s worst nightmare – and the ideal subject for his next book.

A book that they are both desperate to write. 

Time is running out – but the sadness will last forever

Rick has no choice but to enter the cracked twilight of Harriet’s world and confront the history of her murderous choices up close.

As Rick starts to gather the evidence for his long-anticipated book, he finds himself looking into answers that put him in even more danger than before – but this time, he may not survive at all.
