"The Plan" - A Thriller

"The Plan" was published on Friday, November 27th, 2009. "The Plan" is my first published work and I'm happy to admit that it only took three years to finish. Any average writer would have had it done in three to six months, but being I'm employed, married, have a two-year-old son, and am finishing graduate school, three years sounds about right for me.

So what is "The Plan" all about? "The Plan" is about a clandestine effort to assassinate notorious criminals before the dysfunctional justice system mishandles the apprehension and conviction. Or in other words, our hero, Nick Kennedy, is hired by the U.S. government to assassinate people. When Nick finds out that "The Plan" has him killing innocent citizens, Nick wants out. But "The Plan" has rules. And one of them is that you can't get out. Nick and his government liaison, Matt LaPoint, find themselves being targets of the very plan they were hired to implement.

You can order paper copies or an eBook at "The Plan's" portal hosted on my publisher's ( website. The paper copy is going for $20.90 (plus shipping) while the eBook can be purchased for $5. If you're thinking the $20.90 is a bit expensive for a paper back, I do too. Unfortunately, this is out of my control. I'm using an on-demand publishing service and I don't have much control over the pricing. Sorry about that. If it's any consolation, if you buy the book, I'll not only sign it, but I'll also buy you a cold Surly next time we meet.

I also will have a small supply (very small at first) of books that I plan on selling by myself. I get a small discount (compensation for three years of my life spent writing the book I guess) so I plan on selling these for $18. I should have these around December, 15th (or so). They will be sold on a first come basis.

If you end up buying a copy (and more importantly, read it) let me know what you think. You can shoot me an email, leave a review on the book's portal site (recommended approach), or leave a comment on my blog. I'd love to have your feedback, both good and bad.
