My novel “Flagler’s Island” has been picked up by the British publisher Unbound, shortlisted for The Bookseller Industry Awards Independent Publisher of the Year, 2013 & 2014.  The prestige publisher with an impressive list of authors has one of its books longlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

“Flagler’s Island” is a detective thriller set in Palm Beach, Florida.  P.I. Harry Flagler, a distant relation to the founder of Palm Beach, takes on a weird case:  investigate the death of nineteen polo ponies.  Delving into the arcane world of polo leads him to the unseen, not very tourist friendly underbelly of a town that savors its reputation as a haven for the privileged.  Politics, intrigue, family jealousy, and murder creep from the palm trees and tropical flora of Florida’s vaunted “Island” whose motto is “Best of Everything”.

You have a unique opportunity to see the book come to life.  Unbound is the harbinger for the future of book publishing.  Instead of releasing a novel and hoping readers download or buy a hard copy, they developed a plan whereby those of you who want to read my book based on the chapter supplied, the synopsis and my scintillating promotional video, will pledge a few dollars to get it published.  Since Unbound is in England, your dollars will be changed to pound sterling. Everyone who makes a pledge receives a copy of the book.  The higher the pledge, the better the reward.  Share “Flagler’s Island” with friends and acquaintances.  Check it out.  Go to unbound.co.uk/books/flaglers-island
