One slipped by me? I'll be sure to pick up a copy! And I'll keep a closer eye out for the next one, to be sure.

They're in the Mail

Thanks for your interest. The books are in the mail.
Like I said, if you like them, talk them up to your friends. If not...well, use them to level a table or something...

I'll be doing a similar offer with advance reader copies of the next Jericho Quinn Adventure, TIME OF ATTACK, out if February.

And now, I think I'll go ride the Alaska Highway (and work on book #5).

Marc, I just finished your book National Security on my Kindle. All I can say is: Keep writing, it was excellent!!! I've been an avid reader since I was a kid, I've read everything from Pearl S. Buck to Louis L'amour to Tom Clancy. I found your book by chance, I really like that type of book, anything with a military or CIA character in it works for me. Think Jack Reacher or Mitch Rapp. Your character Jericho Quinn works for me. Using the adventure bikes, or any motorcycles in the story lines makes the books that much better. Well done,sir. Keep writing please. Signed, a big fan.

Thanks for the feedback. Glad you found the books and are enjoying them.
I'm working on # 5 now.
Just did a bit of unintentional research earlier today about what it was like slide down the shoulder of the Alaska HWY on my GS... Motorhome 1, Marc's BMW 0. I walked, road away from it, minus a mirror and some plastic parts, with only a sore pinkie finger...so I'm chalking it up to research for crash scenes in future books.......

Sounds like expensive research there, try to avoid that in the future.
Glad you are ok, might have to not drink tea with snobs for a while if your pinkie finger is sore.

Marc -- I picked up a copy of one of your books over the weekend, and am enjoying it a great deal . . . . .

Glad you escaped your research relatively unscathed . . . .

Thanks, guys. I hope you're not disappointed.

After effects of the post-crash adrenaline have worn off enough I can start back up working on book five this afternoon...

Thanks Marc. Book arrived yesterday, can't wait to check it out but it seems I may have to wrestle my wife for it. She's eyeing it pretty hard.
