Blue Ice by Mark N. Cahill (yeah, that’s me) is now released. You can find it on Amazon.com, at Createspace.com, on the Kindle, and on the Nook. Additionally, it’s up on Goodreads.com and I’ve been accepted into their Authors Program.
There will be a book release party on 4/6 at Sakura Tokyo in Worcester at 7:30 which is open to the public. Cash bar, and there will be a band in the lounge at around 9, so join us for dancing and fun with friends.
So the book…
I started writing it a long time ago. It was pretty much complete in 1998, and was on the publication list for Little, Brown and Company that year for a little while, but it got bumped by James Patterson, if I recall correctly. It was then picked up by Vantage for their summer list, but dropped due to budget cuts. No one seemed to want to give a first time writer the love in those days.
So I recently decided I was ready to start writing again and I decided it would border on criminal not to release Blue Ice before I started on anything else. So I have.
Blue Ice is a story about a pair of US Treasury agents on the trail of diamond lasers that are being illegally shipped out of the country. IN the process they meet an engineer, Jim Anderson, who becomes involved in the development of synthetic diamonds. That puts everyone around him in mortal danger as the diamond cartel ruthlessly attempts to protect their monopoly.
It is a fast past techno-thriller which will keep you on the edge of your seat. I certainly hope that you get as much enjoyment out of reading it as I did from writing it.
