    Hey, I love mysteries and have yet to read one about either a trucker or an RCMP officer, so I would love to look over your work. I also share an office with a former journalist/editor, so I have a great second set of eyes.
     
    TicketyBoo Thanks this.

    Hey! The more readers and feedback I get, the better! Especially mystery fans who share an office with an editor! Do you have an ereader? You can get my novel at Smashwords or on Amazon, or I can email you a .pdf if you need it. Let me know.

    Just an update since I first joined the forum. I visit here regularly, but don't post much. Two of my mystery novels featuring a truck driver hero are available now as ebooks on most ebook sales sites, and I'm happy to report that my hero (sort of a Lone Ranger in a Freightliner solving mysteries) is getting some good reviews on Amazon.

    Wish I was young enough to try driving truck myself, but alas! ... so I really appreciate any comments or feedback from those of you on the road, if you like to read mysteries on ereaders. (I'm working on getting them into a print edition.) The novels are called SLOW CURVE ON THE COQUIHALLA and ICE ON THE GRAPEVINE by R.E.Donald. Those of you familiar with the west coast will know that the Coquihalla is in British Columbia and the Grapevine is just north of L.A.

    Comments and suggestions are welcome! Think you'd make a good character in a mystery novel? Tell me about it. I haven't decided on my fourth title yet (still writing my third), but it might be TOP OF THE WORLD or YELLOWHEAD.
