August – September Updates:
As of 1 August, Amazon made some changes to its ebook files. Older Kindles, such as the Touch and DX models, will continue to use the .mobi file format. I’m told that newer Kindles now support the ePub format, which is the format they require us to use in supplying an ebook file to them. Please make sure you order the correct format for your eReader.
Still Shadow-banned on Amazon . . .
In the summer of 2017 one of my books received a 1-star review for being “right-wing propaganda.” It wasn’t, and to show that, all of those involved in the real-life event I used as a model for the plot were acquitted in court. But Amazon’s algorithms didn’t care. A couple days ago, I did another search for my books in the category they’re listed under. After 50 pages of books–1,200 ebooks, some displayed multiple times–not one of my books showed up. And I still won’t show up in any “You might like . . .” or “Also bought . . .” or “Authors you might like . . .” lists. BTW, if you find me in one, I’d love to see it, lol.
So, why do I bring this up? Well, not for sour grapes. It is what it is. However, to try to compensate for Amazon’s ill-will, I’m starting to pull some of my books from their platform. They’ll still be available on my website and elsewhere. Please look here, on this website, if you don’t find it on Amazon.
That said, a lot of time and money goes into producing a book. If, by the end of the year, I don’t see some changes, I’ll have to decide whether or not to continue writing. That, too, is what it is.
What is the MedAir Series?
Based upon current events, the series features detective Lynch Cully and Amy Gibbs, RN, a flight nurse for MedAir, a fictional med-evac service in eastern Missouri. It’s a mix of medical, police, and political thrillers that take on various issues of our day, some more controversial than others: identity theft and electronic eavesdropping, human trafficking, medical kidnapping, conspiracy “theory,” vaccines, and more. All of the topics have been extensively researched, so I hope you keep an open mind as you read. One way or the other, I hope that you’ll enjoy the story.
Still Here! Surviving the End Times
For Christians, the Bible talks of the “End Times,” a period of great turmoil preceding the return of Christ. We’re taught about the tribulation, a rapture of believers, an Antichrist, and more. But what if most everything you’ve been taught is wrong, or at least partially so. Will you know the signs of the times? My first non-fiction book, this study looks at the traditional teachings of the evangelical church and weighs them against the truth of the Scriptures.
His daughter’s kidnapping destroyed his marriage, ripped apart his family, and nearly killed him. But, when his never-ending search for her uncovers dark secrets of one of Washington’s most powerful men, he finds himself in that man’s cross-hairs. Now Adam Afton, broken and alcoholic, has to quicken his pace to find his missing daughter, while staying one step ahead of the most dangerous killers in the world.
For Aric Afton, the disappearance of his older brother is an enigma that is eating away at their family. The last time Adam fell off their radar, he had taken refuge in an alcoholic stupor, but was quickly found. Not this time. So, when Aric receives a cryptic, anonymous postcard, he knows he has to act—Adam is in trouble . . . and Aric will be there to help, calling on his faith, just as he had the first time.
Seamus O’Connor Thrillers
The Militant Genome was my debut novel, and many readers asked for a series with those characters. But I had already started The MedAir Series and put that request on hold. Finally, in 2017, I was motivated to write Ten Seconds ‘Til as part of a ten-author set, and I’m slowly getting around to more.
The story of an 18-year old girl who gets pregnant out of wedlock in the late 1960s. Her moonshiner father warns her not to bring “that baby” to his house, but she has nowhere else to go. She awakens one morning to find her baby gone. Her father has made good his threat to take and sell her baby . . . and her search begins.
