New Novelette: The Breath of Life

My latest book in the Kindle chapbook series has just gone live. It is an 11,000 word novelette entitled The Breath of Life. Hope you check it out. The buyers link in the left-hand column will be active within twenty-four hours.

Here’s a synopsis:

1939, deep in the heart of the Egyptian desert archeologist Winston Smith has made the discovery of a lifetime. An old kingdom Mastaba tomb. But Smith suspects, from the markings on the door, that this tomb contains relics from the period of the new kingdom, the eighteenth dynasty. So begins an adventure that takes Smith deep beneath the Egyptian desert, while on the surface a storm is kicking up and a child is about to be born. As each adventure unfolds simultaneously and at breakneck speed the reader is taken along on a dizzying thrill ride of wonders and horrors, while elsewhere the architects of the future are making plans for an important arrival.

The Breath of Life is a fun, fast paced thriller steeped heavily in the tradition of the pulp novels of the early twentieth century.

    Would you be interested in a short interview for my blog to help promo The Breath of Life? I’d like to have it up while it’s still free. It would be 5 short questions with a link to your website, book and book cover pic.
