I’m proud to announce that my new novel MAXIMILIAN STANDFORTH AND THE CASE OF THE DANGEROUS DARE is now available! And to celebrate, it is being offered as a FREE EBOOK for a limited time (June 11 through June 15). You can get the free eBook from amazon.com here- http://amzn.com/B00CXSDEBE
It is also available as a paperback for the low price of $10.71, which you can find on amazon as well (http://amzn.com/1484034287). The book is also available via amazon in other countries, many also taking part in this one-time deal.
If you have ever enjoyed my blog or my writing or have ever been curious about my novels I hope you will take this opportunity to discover my fiction with this surprising new book. Also, I ask that you please tell other readers. I would love for more people to discover my work, especially during this special limited deal. Here is the back cover description for the book:
“For now, let me warn you of the morbid and sad tale ahead of you. This is a tale filled with horror, dark passages, ghostly apparitions, and deaths I would give my last shilling to forget.”
The cursed and foreboding McGregor Castle is the most terrifying and haunted location in all of the British Empire. Only a brave (or foolish) soul would consider visiting it, let alone staying within its walls for five days. In other words, a perfect dare for a man like Maximilian Standforth!
Maximilian Standforth, famed playboy aristocrat and private detective, is a genius with dangerous tastes. With Bob (his trusty carriage driver, biographer, and bodyguard) and Maggie Collins (actress, spy, and maid) by his side, Maximilian will experience horrors and madness unlike any seen before. For it is at McGregor Castle that the team will discover more than they ever could imagine in this very experimental and genre-breaking thriller.
I hope you enjoy my new, surprising, and unpredictable novel!
Great Scott. Your production is amazing. congrats.
Thanks! Are you reading it now? I hope you continue to like it!
Looking forward to reading it.
Thanks! Personally, I’m a bigger fan of the print version, but the eBook is a great opportunity for people to discover my fiction (well, at least that is the hope). Please be sure to tell your friends and fellow readers!
It’ll be a book group pick, so I’m getting you at least six other readers along with me.
Before or after it is free? LOL. Personally, I would recommend the print copy. I actually created this for a book design.
Well, during, ideally, but I suppose it depends on how quickly they react. (>^-‘)>
And I’d naturally also prefer folks get my print copies, but I’m certainly not going to scoff at getting more readers any which way I can!
Thanks, Scott! Very generous of you — who could possibly refuse such a deal?
Looking forward to reading this one … especially since it boggles the mind that an author could jump from Jane Austen’s world to a playboy aristocrat in no short order!
Note: McGregor Castle sounds deliciously foreboding. I trust there will be no Red Weddings there 🙂
Eek! No Red Wedding. (That scene still irks me. Robb was my favorite character in the series.)
I hope you like the new book! (And check out Jane as well too, of course.)
Reblogged this on T. W. Dittmer and commented:

Well done post and a great cover! Look forward to reading your latest.
FYI- The free eBook sale was only through June 15. But the eBook is only 3.99 and the paperback (which I recommend since I designed it more for book format) is about 10 dollars.
