The Best Book Deal You'll See This Year

A couple of months ago I was asked if I might be interested in joining a group of like-minded mystery/thriller authors with the goal of promoting ourselves - both individually and as a group - as well as pushing each other to be better writers.

I thought about it for awhile, and -- ah, who am I kidding, I didn't have to think about it at all. I said "Hell, yes" before they could change their minds, and just like that I became one of The Twelve.

The Twelve consists of New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors, award-winning authors, journalist-authors, traditionally-published authors, and…well…me. Our goal is nothing less than world domination (or World Domination, depending on how you look at it).

We have a lot of cool stuff planned for the future, but our very first project as a group is something any reader of genre fiction should be able to get behind: DEADLY DOZEN, a twelve volume ebook set of mysteries and thrillers, one book from each author, for the ridiculously low price of $9.99, or less than a buck per book.

BUT WAIT, as the infomercials say, THERE'S MORE! The special introductory price for this twelve-book set (some people call them "box sets," but as the whole thing is electronic I can't really get behind that description in any meaningful way) is just 99 cents for a very limited time.

Now, I don't have to tell you that's less than eight-and-a-half cents per book. And these aren't just any books, these are gripping tales from some of the most talented genre writers around and…well…me. 

Check out this lineup:


DON'T KNOW JACK - Diane Capri
CRY WOLF - J. Carson Black
NIGHT WIDOW - Carol Davis Luce
GUARANTEED JUSTICE - M.A. Comley
STRANGER IN TOWN - Cheryl Bradshaw
BREAKING STEELE - Aaron Patterson
MOONLIGHT SONATA - Vincent Zandri
TERMINUS - Joshua Graham
ONE DAY IN BUDAPEST - J.F. Penn
DEAD CELEB - Michele Scott
FINAL VECTOR - Allan Leverone
THE GIFTS - Linda S. Prather

The individual books in this collection have racked up nearly seven hundred five-star reader reviews at Amazon, and if purchased separately, would cost more than $46, even for the electronic versions. So let's face it, you're going to kick yourself in the ass if you miss out on getting this amazing collection for less than you'd pay for a small coffee at Dunkin' Donuts.

So here are the links for what will be an indispensable collection for any genre reader:

DEADLY DOZEN at Amazon

DEADLY DOZEN at Barnes and Noble

DEADLY DOZEN at iTunes

DEADLY DOZEN at Kobo

By the way, if you'd like to hop on the express train that is The Twelve, you'll definitely want to sign up for our email newsletter. That way you'll be the first to find out about new releases, promotions, giveaways, etc.
