Kindle Summer Book Club

I'm delighted that Black Heart High is part of the Kindle Summer Book Club, a really rather super reading and discussion group to take away the summer blues (well I get summer blues, anyway - I like dark and dank myself :)), featuring books by some of the bestselling independent authors on Kindle.

Coming very soon will be an anthology featuring all the writers, but the hub of the group is the FRABJOUS FACEBOOK PAGE. CLICK HERE TO LIKE IT. Each week we'll be discussing a new book - there's a list below. It'll be like Richard and Judy/Oprah (delete as approporiate - for those in the US, Richard and Judy are like Oprah but without the love-hate relationship with James Frey; for those in the UK, Oprah is like Richard and Judy only without the shoplifting beef).

So here's the books! Links are to UK Kindle but they're all available everywhere.

THE SHOP, JCarsonBlack. The murder of a celebrity inAspensets the table for an orgy of death, destruction and infamy, involving a shadowy conspiracy that goes to the heart of Government, in the heart-poundingUSbestseller .
