Book News and Friday 55

Have you read The Dance yet? Are you holding out for the print version? I realize that there are still a lot of people who just can’t bring themselves to read an e-book.

Well, if this is the category you fall in, I have some fantastic news. The Dance is now available in print!

Click on HERE to order a copy directly from the publisher.

It’s also available at Amazon.com You can reach it by clicking HERE

So don’t delay, pick up your copy today (rhyme intended).

The Dance

Here is a blurb:

Nearly a decade ago, Detective Tom Wiley worked a case that continues to haunt him to this day. But while the nature of The Puppeteer’s horrific crimes will always remain in Tom’s memory, it’s the guilt of not catching the serial killer before he vanished that still weighs heavily on his heart.

Eight years have passed since the last victim fell under the blade of that maniac during his vicious killing spree. The time of peace and quiet has come to an abrupt and gruesome end.

The Puppeteer is back.

With the unwanted help of his newly assigned partner, Detective Anna Perez, Tom will stop at nothing to end The Puppeteer’s latest reign of terror. But as the detectives follow the trail of bodies, they quickly realize The Puppeteer may not be their deadliest enemy, and they’re up against something far more sinister than the twisted workings of a serial predator.

Can Tom and Anna survive this world of insanity and death, of love and loss, of myth and magic, where the lines between good and evil are hard to discern? Or will they be forever swept away in The Dance?

And if you are looking for the Friday 55:

Alright folks, the object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. Susie is the one that started it all, but she has passed the torch to G-Man.

Sand burns my eyes, but I don’t dare blink. They’re close, sounds like three of them. My rifle’s useless, a bullet smashed through its chamber in the ambush. The rest of my squad have fallen. The enemy still searchs. I grip a blade in each hand and spring from my hole. No one lives forever.

Also, don’t forget that Monday is my very first radio interview on Romantic Dialogue.The show broadcasts every Monday night at 9pm EST. My interview will be on March 31st, so mark your calendars.

What exciting news about the book. It is no easy feet to get a book to the point of being published. I checked into it (not that I have a book to publish) and was amazed. Congratulations Sir.

What a wonderful 55. It amazes me how completely different everyone is that participates and also amazes me how much can be jam packed into so few words as you have done here. Oops, I see Lime said the same thing only much better. I may not be original but I do mean it just the same.

At 6:01 PM, Blogger James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

Thanks, Barman. Yeah...it took a long time to see one of my books in print. :D

I appreciate the kind words. I do enjoy reading all of the varied 55s. :D

Congrats on the book news! I dont really care for ebooks cuz you can lie on the floor with a cat on your back and read it.....well ok, if you put the computer on the floor, maybe turned it on its side...

That 55 was so good it made me thirsty!
And yes, Galen is the 55 host now! I have retired.

At 7:20 AM, Blogger James Goodman-Horror Writer said...

Hi S! I'm thinking the print copies will do better than the e-books did for just that reason. :D lol, and sorry about the thirst, but I'm glad you enoyed the 55.

Cool, thanks, Mona. If you get a chance to read it, be sure to let me know what you think. :D
