Well that is what Marc just did for me. I'll be buying all his past and future books.

I recommend Marc's book(s) to any reader that is a fan of the action / adventure genre.


Thanks again Marc!

Thanks for the kind words, Jonesy. I really appreciate it.

Sounds like a great book. I wish I had gotten in on the free deal. Are you going to do any audio books? I really love to listen while I travel.

Thanks for the advance copy, Marc! I'm about half way in - and as much as I liked your first book, your second one is showing a quantum leap in background research and improved style. I'm looking forward to getting further into it (I peeked ahead a bit), and the excitement will very obviously be building.

What I like about your writing is that you are a good writer, looking to tell an interesting and exciting tale, while using a couple of interesting instruments (motorcycling and firearms) to help embellish the story. There are a few other writers out there who seem to rely on the props to generate interest from a particular community (gun enthusiasts, for example) but don't really deliver the goods as far as providing a well-written, logical story progression. You're not like that at all - the stories would be great even if you substituted a Volkswagen for an R1200GSA - well, maybe not quite as good.....

Thank you, sir. Such kind words keep me typing away at book three.

Thanks to those inmates who helped me out with an advance read. ACT OF TERROR is now in bookstores and available in e-book from major distributors.
Stay safe,
Marc

Hey Marc - I just finished reading your 2nd book. Well written and WOW - what a scary premise! Looking forward to the further adventures of Jericho Quinn and his Cajun friend.

Thanks, Cheryl. I've been off the grid a bit (working on a deadline for the fourth Jericho Quinn book) and just saw this post.

Number 3 STATE OF EMERGENCY comes out today. It puts Jericho chasing bad guys at the Dakar. I had a lot of help from folks on this site.
