Mike Martin, previously promoted on Reading Recommendations Nov. 25, 2013, is back to tell us about his new Sgt. Windflower mystery and a special offer!
Finally!! It’s here!! Beneath the Surface is now ready for pre-order in Canada, the United States and around the world. The third installment of the Sgt. Windflower Mystery series is coming off the press and now available for order from Chapters/Indigo, Amazon and Booklocker.com. E-book versions are coming soon.
Yes, Sgt. Windflower is back on the scene of the crime. He is joined again by his trusted ally Eddie Tizzard, his rock-steady girl, Sheila, and a wide cast of supporters. Together they face down an international crime syndicate operating on the East Coast, and help Windflower deal with the modern challenges of sexual harassment and corruption while re-discovering his roots and inner strength.

It’s been just over a month since I began posting to a new blogsite, Reading Recommendations, where I ask authors to reply to a list of questions, to tell us a bit about themselves and their work, and ask that they in turn recommend an author or book they are reading. I’m very pleased with the response I received from authors – some known to me, some recommended to me, and others who contacted me out of the blue – and have been happy to give all of them some promotion on this site. I thought that, since I was taking a break from this blog over the holiday season, it might be interesting to recap what’s been happening over there on Reading Recommendations, just in case you readers of this main blogsite have not yet gone over there to check it out. I’ve created some handy-dandy lists for you with links to all the authors. I’m hoping this will be of help to those of you who are seeking out your next great read!
