Happy Friday everyone! Here’s the latest chapter from A Man of the Mountain, the prequel to my first novel, Whiteout, which just released. So far, the reception for Whiteout has been more positive than I could have ever hoped for (4.75/5 on GoodReads, a very positive Kirkus review, and 4.8/5 on Amazon). Order links are below, and if you can share this post or links to the book around. Every like, retweet, share, or rant in a crowded elevator helps!
7. The Busy Bee Diner
Shirley sat at the counter of a local chain diner, sipping a cup of watery coffee. In one sense, it was disgusting, in another, she needed whatever caffeine it might have been providing. Her hands shook, partly from lack of sleep, and partly from the rage induced by the full-grown toddler that was Rick Mansen. In all her years at the tabloid, she had never witnessed such a parade of idiocy. At least when George had brought a UFO convention to town, they had believed in what they were selling. Mansen was just a ratings whore hiding beneath a paper-thin shell of bravado.
