Yes, my loyal readers, you saw right. Austin Macauley my publisher from my first two books, A Man’s Passion, and I Albert Peabody, has agreed to republish Edge of Darkness. As you recall I had my good friend Tyson edit and format the first edition back in 2018 and got it published through Amazon in 2019.
It is the beginning of the Four Seasons series that introduces you to Mark Marteau, Dave, Nicole and Dylan Baker, and Hector Gonzales, along with others who will come in later books. I signed the contract Saturday and will probably have to look for ways to start paying on this investment too.
I agreed to format it as eBook, audio, and soft cover print. I have found that hard cover doesn’t sell that well, unless you are buying it as a gift for someone.
If you hadn’t read the first edition, Mark is a retired FBI agent fishing on his private lake near Glacier, Montana, when his partner and friend Hector Gonzales arrives in new Dodge Challenger that’s supposed to replace the Plymouth Barracuda, he wrecked back in 1987.
Hector informs Mark that his godson Dylan Baker might need their help to rescue him from Che Lopez and his drug cartel. The story flashes back to a day back in 1977 when he and his first best friend Dave Baker solve a murder of Old Joe Murphy at a salvage yard in Pasco, Washington. He leaves Montana to help out Dylan, but his wife Charlotte gives him an ultimatum to return in 48 hours or she’ll leave him.
Now, the whole point of this series is how Mark has managed to make the Lopez Cartel and Che Lopez his numero uno antagonist, and how events, not necessarily of Mark’s doing has caused certain incidents in Mark’s life to come about.
I believe I have their interest at Austin Macauley piqued and they will agree to do the entire series that ends in spectacular fashion. I’m certain you will agree when you finish reading the last page of the concluding chapter in Desperado.
But first, getting these books done and, in your hands, to read and enjoy.
