Thanks to all

Thanks for the quick replies. I'm two over the number I have on hand but last time the publisher sent me some a couple of weeks after the first batch. If I can get a handful more, I'll post again. They are fairly tight with these though.

Also, while these look just like the book that will eventually be on shelves in May (apart from a big yellow band around the cover), they're early copies, printed and bound before final editing. The price of a free review copy is more typos than usual.... sorry.

If everyone would now kindly send me a PM with their mailing address, I'll get the books in the mail next week.
Stay safe,
Marc

Count me in if you can spare a copy, or PM me Paypal info and I'll snag a copy... Though I'm heartbroken and shocked that you didn't include a DR650 in your story,jk

Thanks dogjaw. The twelve advance review copies have been spoken for but I'm keeping a list in case the publisher sends me a few more.
The first book, NATIONAL SECURITY is doing very well (up to #8 on Amazon Action/Adventure) in no small part because of word of mouth from inmates on this forum.

I don't sell the books direct but this one is available for pre-order on Amazon and B&N. It hits stores, e-books and audible on May 1.

The DR650 is a great bike and since I'm signed for four books so far, I'm sure Jericho will run across one at some point.
Working on Book 3 now that puts Quinn on a KTM during the Dakar...

Thanks for your interest.
Stay safe,
Marc

Almost read it all the first night...

Extremely fast paced - loved every minute.

Placed a pre-order for a copy on my e-reader.

Thanks, Mike.

And thanks to all for their interest in the books.
The rest of the advance review copies will go out this weekend.

Stay safe,

Thanks!

Marc,

The book arrived yesterday I am going to dig in to it this weekend.

I just wanted to say thanks for the wrist bands, and the personal touch on the inside cover (oh, and the book itself)!


Respectfully,
Jeff

The Last to know . . .

Marc, you dog, if you get a few more than 12, remember an old Marine, tired, worn, almost toothless and with failing eyes, and have pity. Please?

Thanking you in advance, I remain, etc. etc.

Marc-

Mine arrived yesterday as well. I am 100+ pages in already and wishing I had the day off to just dive in.

I well needed distraction from a raft of family drama.

Perhaps we can organize a "pay it forward" program for the advanced reader copies. If you send me the mailing address of the next person on the list I would be happy to mail them my copy after I finish.

Looks like a good read. Read a few reviews on the B & N website for your first book. Looks like I'll be ordering a copy of it for my E-Reader

I enjoyed the first one, though it's a bit outside of my usual genre. I'll be looking to pick up the new one when it comes out!

Jericho Quinn adventures

Thanks, guys. I appreciate you reading the advance copies and helping to get the word out there that this series exists. Since the covers don't have anything to reference riding I'm hoping readers who also ride will spread the word (if you like the book.) The release date for this one is May 1. The next book in the series is schedule for March of next year.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Stay safe,
Marc

Hmmmm...

It seems I lied. I am 200 pages in and its only Wednesday. Oh well. My only regret, aside from a lack of sleep, is that I am "bending up" an advanced proof, signed by the creator.

More to follow soon...

Barnes and Noble has posted a couple of sample chapters for those that are interested. Go to the link: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/act-...ron/1108046247
Then click to read an excerpt at the bottom of the page.
Stay safe.

Finished...

I finished Marc's book last night, and it was a great read. For those of you that are avid readers like me, you know how it is when you discover a "new to you" author that pulls you in and makes you have to search out all their writings. 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!
Jonesy
