The new, revised edition of my novel, A Favor Returned, was named a finalist in the New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards in the Fiction (Other) category.  The director of the awards informed me that at least three judges read the book and it earned it’s finalist designation based on the points awarded by these judges. Although the book did not win the top prize, I will confess to feeling that my writing was somewhat validated by these objective judges whom I did not know.  To celebrate that validation, I am offering a free hard-bound copy of my second novel, Agent for Justice, to anyone who purchases a copy of A Favor Returned in paperback from any source between December 9, 2013 and  December 20, 2013. Simply send a proof of purchase receipt to me at 1077 S. Paseo del Prado, Green Valley, Arizona 85614 and I will forward your copy of Agent for Justice. NOTE-Agent for Justice is no longer in print so this offer is valid only while supplies last.)
