The Abigail Affair - contemporary nautical mystery/thriller by Tim Frost

Hi everyone,

I am pleased to annouce that my new nautical thriller The Abigail Affair is now available on Smashwords and Amazon Kindle.

The regular price is $0.99 but Mobilereads members are invited to download from Smashwords free until the end of September using coupon code HM22M at checkout. All formats available including Kindle.

Blurb: Toby Robinson is 22 and broke. He lands a job as junior steward on a Russian oligarch's yacht in the Caribbean and feels his luck is about to change. It is, but not in the way Toby hoped. On his first night aboard he is framed for a brutal murder. Armed only with a winning smile and a flair for mixing cocktails, can Toby clear his name, stay alive – and foil a sinister international conspiracy that threatens the entire western hemisphere?

http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/23907

Thank you for considering my book!

UK Kindle owners buying indie

Good news for indie authors - the UK Kindle site is proving a hit with new writers (partly due to the artificially high e-book prices currently imposed by many mainstream UK publishers).

At this hour 6 of the top 10 thrillers are from independent authors.

I'm at 5 in Thrillers and 19 overall. Quite exciting.

UK bestseller seeks American/Canadian/Australian friends

'The Abigail Affair' has been in the UK Kindle Top 100 for a month, is currently around No 20 and has sold 1,000 copies in December so far.

American/Canadian/Australian readers are warmly invited to join the party, admission $0.99!

The story starts on the day after Christmas and ends on New Year's Eve, and would make a good festive download for anyone who likes a fast, fun read. With its Caribbean setting it might even warm you up if you live in cold climes.

Happy holidays,

Tim

That's fantastic news, Tim! Congratulations.

I highly recommend The Abigail Affair. From my review:

Quote:
Twenty-two-year-old Toby Robinson joins a Russian yacht as crew, clueless to what he's signed up for. Ruthless Russians, subterfuge and dead bodies abound.

The Abigail Affair is an action-packed and enthralling contemporary nautical thriller. There's no fluff or flat spots and the story is always moving. What stood out most about this book, though, was Toby's voice and larrikin sense of humour - distinctive yet not contrived.


Happy holidays.

Cheers
Vicki

Free? Now that is a bargain!

I really enjoyed Final Passage, but of the two, The Abigail Affair is my favourite.

My Smashwords review:

Thanks Vicki!

'The Abigail Affair' reached 815 in the US store today and is selling strongly (almost 10,000 copies). Meanwhile I see you are going great guns in the UK with 'Brittle Shadows'!
