Present-day nautical mystery thriller 'Final Passage'

Hello all, may I introduce myself and my new book?

I am Tim Frost from the UK. I wrote 'Final Passage' because there are so few contemporary thrillers with a nautical theme.

"When Martin Lancaster was eighteen, his father was mysteriously lost at sea during a yacht race. Years later Martin discovers long-lost logbooks in his mother's attic and vows to find out the truth. But he meets implacable resistance from family, business colleagues and officials, who seem prepared to stop at nothing to prevent him discovering what really happened all those years ago. "

Kindle link:http://www.amazon.com/Final-Passage-...4594231&sr=1-1

Barnes and Noble link with nice reviews: http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Fin...ustreview#TABS

Thank you for reading my post and my book (if you do, which I hope!)
Tim

Hi Tim..

Welcome to MobileRead... Your book sounds really interesting... I was wondering if you could upload it to Smashwords... That would save all international Kindle owners an extra $2 for the right to buy at Amazon.

Hi Lene & Maureen
Thanks for the comments. 'Final Passage' is available at Smashwords:
http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/4561

It's annoying that Amazon charges such a large premium to non-US customers. But at least they now allow us to publish from anywhere.
I hope you enjoy the book.

Thank you, Tim... I've put your book in my cart and will get it down, when I get a few more in there.

Tim ... I am on page 165 and can tell you that I LOVE your book so far...a real page turner. I was even caught reading at work (easy to do with the nook sitting on my desk!). Can't wait to see the ending!

Thank you for making it available on Smashwords! As a Sony user the Kindle and B&N editions are no good for me. I've added it to my library for my next purchasing spree

Welcome to MobileRead, Tim.

Well, I read the sample. How could I not buy it! Just the style of writing I enjoy.

I'm really looking forward to reading it.



EDIT UPDATE: If Smashwords ever lets me checkout, that is!

Thanks Diana. It is so motivating to get feedback from appreciative readers like you. This book got zero interest from conventional publishers in the UK but since posting it as an e-book it has achieved quite a litte following. All from the USA ... I think the UK is a couple of years behind in take-up of e-reading.

I am always pleased to see reviews and ratings. The Barnes and Noble readers are keenest at doing these for some reason.

I am currently working on 'Toby in the Tropics' which is the story of a gap-year student who gets a job working on a Russian oligarch's megayacht. He witnesses a murder on his first night aboard and is promptly framed for it.

Best wishes, Tim
