“Quintana Roo, Yucatan”

Quintana_Roo_Yucatan_Cover

Rikki Breitenberg is an archaeologist in charge of the first team of American documenters allowed by the Mexican government to explore newly discovered Mayan ruins in the Yucatan. However, shortly after their arrival in Mexico, things go awry. Treacherous jungle, inclement weather and dangerous wildlife are only the beginning. When Rikki and her team run afoul of members of an ancient cult devoted to the worship of a bloodthirsty god, things take a terrifying turn for the worse. During their struggle for survival, the team makes a startling discovery that may rewrite the whole of human history. Will they survive to bring their amazing find back to civilization?

Here are some things readers have said about my award-winning, critically-acclaimed, bestselling action/adventure novel “Quintana Roo, Yucatan”:

“This book was my first introduction to the action/adventure genre, but if all of them are like this it won’t be my last.”

“The author does such an amazing job of telling about the trip through the jungle, that at times you feel you are there.”

“This is a novel of pure action and adventure. There was never a dull moment, even for a minute.”

“There was no stop in the action, and if you are into good action this is the book for you.”

“I really loved this book. It was a page turner i couldn’t put down.”

“Once you start you won’t be able to stop reading.”

“I would recommend it to adult readers though as it gets cruel and bloody at times.”

“A classic adventure story.”

Please Do

Quintana_Roo_Yucatan_Cover

Before, I’ve been asked by models or photographers about using one of my books in a photo-shoot as a prop. By all means, please do. The only thing I ask is that you share the photos in which my book(s) appear.

Of my books that are currently available, I would suggest that the best one to use for such purposes is “Quintana Roo, Yucatan“. The paperback edition is large – 564-pages – and the book is an award-winning bestseller. The latter point would make it better known to anyone seeing the photo(s) in which the book appeared – if that matters to you for photographic reasons.

Book Cover Designs

More and more I keep seeing lesser-known authors modeling their books’ covers after cover designs of major bestsellers. Personally, I don’t like this trend. It’s something that I sincerely hope you’ll never see me do. If you ever do see that on any of my books, it’ll only be because a publisher has completely overruled me on the point, and forced the cover through against my wishes and arguments. And, I ask that if such a thing ever does happen, that all of you contact said publisher, and complain and protest the cover, please.

Why do people copy such well-known covers? Do they think that people will think they’re buying a huge bestselling title, and buy their book by accident? Or are they just trying to link their release to something that’s far better known to the general public? I truly don’t know. But, again, I don’t like seeing it. It strikes me as a cheap trick to try and con readers into buying their book.

What do all of you think about this tend in book cover designs?

How Absorbed Do You Get?

When I’m reading, I tend to get very absorbed in the book. I’m talking to the point where I’m simply not aware of anything else going on around me. It’s sometimes as if we rest of the world has faded away. Or maybe I have – into the book.

Other people tend to do this, too, but I don’t know just how common it is. How absorbed do you get in a book when you’re reading? How normal is it to be so into a book that it’s as if the rest of the world has gone away?

What Are You Reading?

Book_Stack

As an avid reader, and as a bestselling, award-winning author, I’m always curious about what other people are reading. At the moment I’m reading one book, and re-reading another. I’m reading “Dracula: The Un-Dead” by Dacre Stoker. I’m also re-reading “The Witch’s Coin: Prosperity and Money Magick” by Christopher Penczak.

What are all of you reading right now?
