Wild Card Final

Well, I pressed the button at 19:30 GMT Sunday and Amazon usually takes about 10-12 hours to put it up.

It’s 171k words.

I had a bunch of clever things to say, but they’ve gone out of my head. I’ll check later to make sure Amazon hasn’t thrown up a problem with the conversion. Sometime tomorrow, I will get to answering all the fantastic supporting posts and emails that have come in over the last couple of days. Thanks guys and gals, I needed them πŸ™‚

I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to hearing your feedback – here, on Amazon, Goodreads or where-ever.


About Mark Henwick

I was born in Africa and left out in the sun too often. An early interest in philosophy and psychology was adequately exorcised by tending bars. And while trying to enroll in a class to read Science Fiction full time, I ended up taking an engineering degree which splendidly qualified me to move into marketing. That in turn spawned a late onset career in creative writing. When not working, I get high by the slightly less conventional means of a small light aircraft. My first book, 'Sleight of Hand' is available on Amazon at http://amzn.to/Sa0D3n

      Ha! Sebastian, we are neighbors. I must get an app on this page to allow everyone to put on their approximate location and display the result on a map of the world. I’ve had feedback from Canada, USA, New Zealand, Hawaii, Columbia, Malaysia, South Africa, Scandinavia, Europe, Brazil, Jamaica.

    Reading now. Half way done. Very good book. Like the plot twists and character development. Very polished.

  17. Colin says :

    Thank-you for the Christmas present! I’m looking forward to reading this one while dodging the evil looks of she who must be obeyed.

  18. Robert Bird says :

    Just finished the book (for the first time anyway). I had to use my cellphone as a hotspot for my Kindle last night to download it – power failure from ice storm here so no regular internet connections. Thanks for another excellent story, Mark. I’ll post a review (very positive of course) after I let everything percolate.

    I loved the cover and once again the editing was excellent. Everything flowed, very few typos. I know that you thanked your editors, cover artists, beta readers and all, but please let them know that their efforts are also very much appreciated by your readers.

    Here’s wishing you all a happy holiday. Thanks for the hard work put in by you and your team getting this out for us readers.

    • Mark Henwick says :

      Hope the power was restored in time for the turkey!
      The typos are being corrected. I spotted a couple and some readers spotted for me. Leiah, as usual, found a fistful πŸ™‚
      I’m delighted with the response – makes the effort well worthwhile.
