    (Thanks to those of you who helped me out with advance reads. ACT OF TERROR is now in book stores and available in e-books through major distributors.)


    Many thanks to all the inmates who did reviews and helped get the word out about NATIONAL SECURITY last November.

    I have TWELVE (12) advance review copies of the second book, ACT OF TERROR (May 2012) also featuring motorcycling hero, Agent Jericho Quinn.
    I'd be happy to send a copy, at my expense, to the first twelve who let me know they're interested on this thread. If you like the book, talk it up to your friends on Facebook, Twitter, with your riding buds or around the water cooler. Later, when the book comes out, I'd appreciate a review on Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, etc.

    While this is a mainstream Action/Adventure series (praised by Publishers Weekly) the characters are motorcyclists and ride a variety of bikes in each story. The first two books see Quinn and his partners aboard BMW GSAs, a Chinese knockoff, a Harley Night Rod, a Ducati 848 and Royal Enfield Bullets. So far, I have a deal for four books with the third coming out March of 2013. My hope is to integrate motorcycling into these stories the way Clive Cussler does with scuba diving.

    My 21 year old son probably best described the feeling of this book: "Wow, Dad, I hope someday I can wheelie a Royal Enfield into oncoming gunfire to save the girl..."

    So, reply if you're interested and I'll ship you an advance review copy--
    And...if you've read NATIONAL SECURITY, I always like to hear from other riders. My Facebook and Website links are below the image.

    Stay safe,
    Marc

    I am very interested. I read the last one on my iPad in less than 48 hours. A very enjoyable read.

    Thanks for the quick replies. I'm two over the number I have on hand but last time the publisher sent me some a couple of weeks after the first batch. If I can get a handful more, I'll post again. They are fairly tight with these though.

    Also, while these look just like the book that will eventually be on shelves in May (apart from a big yellow band around the cover), they're early copies, printed and bound before final editing. The price of a free review copy is more typos than usual.... sorry.

    If everyone would now kindly send me a PM with their mailing address, I'll get the books in the mail next week.
    Stay safe,

    Count me in if you can spare a copy, or PM me Paypal info and I'll snag a copy... Though I'm heartbroken and shocked that you didn't include a DR650 in your story,jk

    Thanks dogjaw. The twelve advance review copies have been spoken for but I'm keeping a list in case the publisher sends me a few more.
    The first book, NATIONAL SECURITY is doing very well (up to #8 on Amazon Action/Adventure) in no small part because of word of mouth from inmates on this forum.

    I don't sell the books direct but this one is available for pre-order on Amazon and B&N. It hits stores, e-books and audible on May 1.

    The DR650 is a great bike and since I'm signed for four books so far, I'm sure Jericho will run across one at some point.:wink:
    Working on Book 3 now that puts Quinn on a KTM during the Dakar...

    Thanks for your interest.
    Stay safe,
    Marc

    Extremely fast paced - loved every minute.

    Placed a pre-order for a copy on my e-reader.
