I’ll be going to the Cape Cod Writers Center annual meeting at the Lobster House restaurant in South Yarmouth this evening. Not staying for dinner, just dropping in for the networking hour and having a drink. Maybe tell a few people about DEVIL’S REEF.
Every day I click on my various links to see how many books I’ve sold. There was a strong initial response, but then it slacked off a little, to be expected as many friends have already purchased DEVIL’S REEF. I’m working on the next wave of sales, generated by word of mouth and promotion in my various alumni magazines. I know, people are busy, life doesn’t revolve around my book. You have other things on your minds, like paying taxes, and the Patriots playing the Jets, and enjoying the great weather last weekend. Speaking of which, last night was a full moon, and I went on a moonlit hike, 5 miles on Sandy Neck Beach in Cape Cod Bay. What an evening, how great is it to live on Cape Cod!
The book is gaining a bridgehead internationally. Someone in England, I think I know who, purchased it. And here’s something else that made my day: a friend recommended DEVIL’S REEF to his son, a 1st lieutenant serving in the U.S. Army in the Anwar Province of Iraq. His son downloaded the book and is reading it. How cool is that? I hope he enjoys it.
That’s all for now. If you have read DEVIL’S REEF, please give it a rating on Amazon.
DEVIL’S REEF is now available for those who do not have a Kindle or a Nook. If you go to http://www.Smashwords.com, see link below, you can buy a PDF copy of the book. There are other formats available too which I’m not really familiar with… Palm Reading Device, Amazon Digital Editor, Sony Reader, and Epok and Kobo…
For Kindle I think it’s best to go to Amazon.

What do private investigators do between books? Plenty, apparently, and they sometimes wake their authors up at 3 a.m. to tell them.
After leaving Miami, Harry McCoy sailed south to Key Largo, then Key West, and then to the Yucatan. It was relaxing.
But Harry gets antsy relaxing, so after spending most of the summer in Mexico, he dropped Detective Esperanza off in Miami and, word has it, he’s now sailing north to Boston, where he has business to take care of.
What he doesn’t know is he’s going to get frozen-in in Boston Harbor (sorry, Harry). But I’m told a good 0 degree winter sleeping bag will keep a guy plenty warm even in the most frigid conditions. The walk to the marina showers in the middle of January is a bitch, and it’s no fun chipping ice off the deck, but Boston isn’t the worst place to spend the winter.
On the good side, Harry introduces us to a fun group of guys who live at the marina (most of whom have been thrown out of the house by their wives) and I know I’ll have fun exploring Harry’s new hang-outs in Beantown. And, of course, Harry is going to get into a fair bit of trouble, and have a new set of problems.
That’s about it for now. Oh, I almost forgot, Harry’s getting into Facebook, and is starting his own page, more on that later…

I know everyone’s busy, but if you have finished DEVIL’S REEF and would like to give it a review on Amazon, I encourage you to do so. I’m trying to get at least 10 good reviews… Thanks again for ordering the book!!!
