Fresh Frozen was a very interesting book. Not only did it go into the field of medical technology, but it also included a spy and a murder. In Fresh Frozen, Dr. Van Deman owns an Infertility Center in Mississippi. Tinker Murtagh is the spy I mentioned, but who would need to spy on an Infertility Center and who hired him? Police Officer Sarbeck and his wife are desperate to have a family; can Dr. Van Deman help them? And then there are the wealthy mystery women. Why would 2 women who have everything need Dr. Van Deman's help? What is the good doctor really doing within the center besides making money? And who will die?

The intrigue continued as I turned each page and watched the characters all come together forming the story of Fresh Frozen. I was so involved in this book that I couldn't wait to see what would happen next. Fresh Frozen is different from most books I've read. In most books, no matter what the genre, the characters are introduced and "join" each other early in the book. Not in this case. Each character is been introduced with little connection to the others. As you go along, you read the stories that make up the characters, you get to know them and their problems and all of this comes before the real connections are made. It's like a jigsaw puzzle without a picture. You know all of the pieces fit and can't wait to see what the end result will be.

I found Fresh Frozen to be very different as well as quite refreshing to read. And the ending... I would NEVER have guessed the turn of events that make up the last 20 pages of Fresh Frozen. The hiring of the spy will surprise you and the murder will surprise you even more.

So if you love a good mystery, this book is definitely for your. Fresh Frozen is a great book that I highly recommend!

Was the Experiment a Success?

I recently conducted a little experiment in book marketing, placing an ad on FaceBook promoting the release of my three mystery/medical thriller novels as eBooks. The materials utilized for the experiment were no more than my laptop, a little electricity, a high speed cable Internet connection, and a credit card --- as well as some spare time that I did not have. (Perhaps I should have spent the minutes moving past page 100 of my work–in–progress, a fourth novel tentatively titled Wiggle Room.)

The results of my non-scientific experiment are detailed in this essay and presented in the guise of a blog entry on my author’s website. While it is meant primarily to interest other authors or maybe publishers, I hope the piece is clever enough for my book fans as well. I was intrigued when author Jeffrey Marks recently reported his own experience with advertising on FaceBook, publishing an article and follow-up piece in the Mystery Writers of America newsletter. I decided to see for myself.…
