A few weeks ago, I mentioned I’d been invited to contribute to the new action series, The Dead Man. I know, talk about whippa! (That’s Maine-speak for “nifty beyond all reasonable belief.”) But it gets better….

Dead Man CoverI can hear you saying, “How, Matt? How does it get better?” We’ll get to that. But first, a recap: What is The Dead Man? It is, hands down, the most exciting new slice of manly/horror/action/adventure to come out since Don Pendleton first typed the word “Executioner.”  Since Caine decided to roam the West, doling out his own brand of Kung Fu justice. Since Bruce Banner flipped up his collar and took to the road, trying to figure out the whole Hulk thing….

The first book in this series of short, gut-punch novels, The Dead Man: Face of Evil, came out little more than a month ago, and it’s been selling like hotcakes. The rave reviews are stacking up–which proves lots of things, among them: Your average Joe and Josephine want and need their quick-read, escapist fiction. And if traditional publishers won’t offer it, writers will. Ebooks rock.

So, back to the “even better” part: If you’re intrigued and you haven’t yet given the series a serious perusal, it just became more affordable than ever to do so. For a brief period, the first book in the series, The Dead Man: Face of Evil, is marked down to a meager 99 cents. That’s less than the price of a bear claw and a coffee (though no less tasty)!

The Dead Man: Ring of KnivesThe reason for the modest price? It’s to celebrate the release of the second book in the series, The Dead Man: Ring of Knives. And it’s a corker. Check it out here. You don’t have to read the first to enjoy the second, but at 99 cents, you’ll be crying the blues if you pass up this limited-time-only bargain….
