Rallying 'Round "Round Robin"

If you'll indulge me, I'd like to engage in a bit of hard sell here. I've written a book I think is absolutely wonderful. I'm not the only one who holds it in high regard. The book has twenty reader reviews on Amazon; sixteen are five-star reviews, four are four-star reviews. They range from enthusiastic to gushing approval. Problem is, this book isn't close to being part of the mystery/thriller genre in which I usually work.

"Round Robin" is described on its cover as an epic love story. If it were a movie, it would be a romantic comedy. Compared to the stories I usually write, it's a book without a body count. What it has in common with my other books is a large cast of interesting characters, smart dialogue and more than a few laughs — way more than a few laughs. It also has heart, by the ton.

The two principal characters are Robin Phinney and Manfred Welk. Robin is described as 230 pounds of bad attitude. Manfred is as big as an NFL lineman, and stronger to boot. You'll love both of them; you won't be able to help yourself.

I want to sell a lot more copies of "Round Robin" than I've been selling so far, and then I want the new readers to tell everyone they know. Then I want those people to tell everyone they know. Get the idea? The book is that good.

Don't take my word for it, though. Below are the headlines from the reader reviews on "Round Robin" and a link to its Amazon Kindle page, its B&N Nook page and its iTunes page too. Check it out. You thank me later.

  1. I love Round Robin. What a great book. I may be a little biased but I've read the book about six times, and I get sucked in by the characters every time!

  2. I think I'm gonna read 'Round Robin' again too.
