5a.m. Flash 141112 – Free cosy mystery eBook by Mike Bove 14 & 15 November

I’m pleased to announce another free eBook, this time Mike Bove’s cozy mystery, Willowtree, which is free today and tomorrow. The links are:

Mike’s book is normally only £1.30 so even if you miss this free offer, it won’t break your bank. 🙂

A little about Willowtree, a Bruce DelReno Mystery:

Bruce DelReno plays a lot of golf. Well, he’s retired because the Postal Service drove him to it. His wife, a nurse, still works. A lot. So, Bruce frequents the Mesquite Hills Golf Club in the fictitious town of Willowtree, Arizona.

One day he finds bones near the course. This discovery begins his pursuit of the killers of three individuals whose bodies were found nearby, but 30 years apart. This mild mannered ex-postman is emboldened by the police’s slow progress, and encouragement from his wife, and best friend, an Apache Indian. Bruce’s investigating centers on a group of locals who grew up together in Willowtree.

There is murder, humor, golf, food, and local color in this tale, as well as twists and some interesting characters. Beautiful desert willows grow wild in the area around Willowtree, contributing to the stability of the land and the sustenance of wildlife. So does a certain weed that can be used in sinister ways.

And about Mike…

Mike Bove is a Vermont native who taught in public schools and coached high school track and soccer. He was involved as an actor and director in high school, college, and community theater. He adapted a folk tale, The Nosebag, for the stage, produced and directed it. Mike left teaching and worked for the Postal Service after moving to Cape Cod. There he became an avid golfer and fisherman. He and his wife, Jane moved to Sedona in 1994 where he retired in 2010. He is currently working on Stinger Maguire, the second Bruce DelReno Mystery.

Thank you, Mike. 🙂

Unfortunately, as I post an interview a day (amongst other things) I can’t review books but I have a feature called ‘Short Story Saturdays’ where I review stories of up to 2,500 words. Alternatively if you have a short story or self-contained novel extract / short chapter (ideally up to 1000 words) that you’d like critiqued and don’t mind me reading it / talking about and critiquing it (I send you the transcription afterwards so you can use the comments or ignore them) 🙂 on my ‘Bailey’s Writing Tips’ podcast, then do email me. They are fortnightly episodes, usually released on Sundays, interweaving the recordings between the red pen sessions with the hints & tips episodes. I am now also looking for flash fiction (<1000 words) for Flash Fiction Fridays and poetry for Post-weekend Poetry.
