GREETINGS FROM THE SUB-ARCTIC!
Who could use a new Kindle? What about signed hardbacks from leading Thriller authors?
The leaves are starting to change color and the air has taken on a crispness in the early morning. The mosquitoes are mostly gone. It is a beautiful time of the year. All kinds of new smells for Stanley to explore in the woods after each rain passes.
Twilight signals the daytime ends
The dark’s nightly veil descends
The last of the waning light
I can finally see the night
The leaves are changing
The air is crisp
Fall is here
Soon, the northern lights will appear
Here’s a picture of our house at 65 degrees north by Wendy Whitehead Martelle taken from our driveway last winter.
With Fall comes the rain and Stanley doesn’t like the rain. He usually does a little bit of business and then works me to go back inside. He hesitates the second he gets out the door and raindrops hit his dog fur, which is thickening up finally. I thought he was going to have a light spring jacket for the rest of his life, but survival genes are kicking in. I hope he gets as shaggy as the horses next door. That’ll help him with our upcoming winter.
Also, Stanley found an ermine living in a fallen treehouse in our woods. Here’s a picture of the little guy giving Stanley the figurative finger. And, please keep reading to the bottom. I have a couple raffles and two books on sale.
How about signed hardback books from the world’s leading authors and a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card?
This is a newsletter list-building giveaway. I know, I know – more lists! But you’ll be able to unsubscribe whenever you want and you’re already signed up for mine, so how can you miss? Do you love a good thriller (rhetorical questions, since, of course!)?
PLUS, I have a couple books on sale this week!
First up is Metal Legion 1 – Scorpion’s Fury for only 99 cents (also in Kindle Unlimited). If you haven’t jumped into this hard-hitting military science fiction series, you are missing out.

Next up is The Darwin Project, also only 99 cents and in KU.
John Hindmash asked me to help his family with his catalog as his health declined. After he passed away in May, I am managing his titles in memoriam and am working on finishing the last two books – I’m a quarter of the way finished writing Book #5 in his Jack Foster Space Opera (see below).
Darwin – Demon or Friend, the Beginning or the End?
That’s Toby’s enigma. When he inherits his uncle’s corporate empire, he discovers it’s controlled by two superintelligences.
Darwin wants to prove he’s more intelligent than humans. For Bronwyn—the other SI—there’s no mystery: she already knows the answer

KING SUMO Raffle – free to enter!
I had one of the links incorrect last week – that is fixed. These are all good links: I’m sorry about last week. I’d love to say that I’ll never do it again, but the best I can say is that I’ll never do it intentionally. I don’t like being jerked around, and I don’t like jerking people around.
The first randomly selected winner from the first raffle never replied, but the second person did. Congratulations to Jessica from New York. Your Kindle Fire HD8 is on its way to you via Priority Mail.
With one Kindle Fire out the door, I have three remaining. A 2020 Fire HD8 (8”, 32GB), one 2021 Fire HD10 (10”, 32GB), and a top of the line Kindle Paperwhite (2022). I’ll give away one every two weeks.
Second up, a Kindle Fire HD8 AND a $50 Amazon Gift Card (US Only). What do you get? A chance to win. What do I get? Your email address, but since you’re clicking from here, you’re already on my list, so I get to thank you for being here.
JJE 16 – Succession is back from editing and will now arrive early: Preorder delivery has been moved forward a month to August 25th!
Battleship Leviathan 5 – Leviathan Rises! is being edited now. Delivery remains Sep 27 since we already set up a bunch of paid promotions to get the word out about this series. Battleship Leviathan #1 will be Free from Sep 27 to Oct 1 during that time. If you haven’t jumped on board this series, that will be the time to dive in. Book #2 will be on sale for 99 cents during those five days, too.
Battleship Leviathan #6 – Leviathan’s Fear, the final book in the Battleship Leviathan series. It came in just over 90k words and wraps the storyline and the series. I hope you like how it turned out. This one will release in October.
And now I’m working on Jack Foster #5. I promised my friend John that I would finish his series. He passed away on May 30th. He had put Jack #5 – You Don’t Know Jack up for pre-order for September 30, so I have to knuckle down and get this book written so we can deliver to John’s final wishes. If you’d like to start the series, to be ready when #5 publishes, click the link below and then go to the series page. You’ll find Violent Graduation at the top of the list:)
