So, the blog below is posting links to a pirate site. Your DCMA is ridiculous. You don’t need my home address and my phone number nor the rest of the page of information. It’s OBVIOUS that this person is breaking the law. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Simply searching your site for the word DOWNLOAD should be enough. If an author isn’t offering their own work then it’s piracy. This isn’t that hard.

Coming June 25th from Wilde City Press

Martin Dixon’s carefully constructed peaceful life is turned upside down when his super Christian eighteen year-old nephew Carter shows up unexpectedly on his doorstep and announces that he’s gay, Martin’s first impulse is to send him back to his parents. But when he discovers that Carter has been in a mental hospital to cure his gay-ness he realizes he’s stuck with the boy. Unfortunately, the two get on each other’s nerves, each driving the other to distraction. Independently, they each arrive at the same conclusion. The other would be much less annoying if he only had…a boyfriend.

ImageIt’s winter 1984, Private Investigator Nick Nowak has allowed his life to fall to pieces: he’s stopped taking cases, given up his apartment and taken a job as a bartender at a sleazy joint tucked under the El. All he wants to do is stay hidden and lick his wounds after the death of his lover, Detective Bert Harker. But, when the least likely person in the world shows up at the bar and asks him to take a new case he finds himself investigating the very un-suspicious heart attack death of a priest. Nick is convinced he’s wasting his time until the clues begin to add up to something entirely unsuspected. Release date: May 23rd, 2014.

LammyFinalist_Small_Web_v3 “Thornton’s crisp, terse style and smart, cynical observations make for a refreshing change in the current crop of tough guys and private eyes.” — Josh Lanyon, author Adrien English Mysteries

“The character of Nick Nowak is strongly developed, the story being told from his perspective as he reasons through all the data

WinnerSMhe has and moves the case forward. And the manner in which he comes to realize what Harker was doing — and why — is dramatic and very effective storytelling. Overall, Murder Book works well as a period crime novel…” –Mysterious Reviews
