Let the Games Begin! The IABS&R Volume 3 Games, that is…

A while back, I made notice that we were going to manage IABS&R Volume 3 a little bit differently than we had the previous two. Seeing how I am knee deep into my Emerson Commitment, and I am slowly, very slowly, putting together a collection of my short stories and flash fiction, I thought it best not to commit to a moderation of submissions and all the this and that it entails and just invite authors to send me print editions of their work directly…

And lo and behold, someone did send me a book directly. How about that…

I am very pleased and privileged to introduce to you the novel HAWSER, a, what looks to be very compelling, work of intrigue and adventure from an author with a name that I happen to think is a very cool and catchy authorial-type-name and one to be reckoned with – J Hardy Carroll.

Now, as I am chock-full of things to do in the present and beyond, it will be some time before I make the determination as to whether to actually read and review the book. In the interim, I will post it on my sidebar for you all to view and consider in a blatant effort of mine to coax and convince you into purchasing it so that you yourself may do the most honorable thing a reader can do for an Indie Author, which of course is to review it!. And during this lag of time between now and when I make my IABS&R Volume 3 determination, as opposed to “selection” since I have but one book to choose from, I invite you to send – as in mail – as in postal service mail (see Contact page for address) – me a polished and ready for prime time print edition version of your book, which may include just about any genre except Erotica and Romance. At which time, once received, I can then properly reclassify this IABS&R volume properly as a “selection” vice “determination.”

You dig?

So, without further ado and nonsense from me, I present to you J Hardy Carroll’s novel, HAWSER.

HAWSER by J Hardy Carroll

A little package of a self-contained world of alternate reality delivered straight to my PO Box doorstep courtesy the author and via CreateSpace and the United States Postal Service…

Despite this poorly presented picture of mine, this is a very eye-catching cover and one that conveys the intense vibe that one would expect a cover for a story about a world war to convey

The back cover is also sharp and blurb-appropriate

I really like the name of the publishing imprint – GRAPNEL BOOKS, with its logo picture of a grappling hook…awesomeness


 

HAWSER by J Hardy Carroll

Weighing in at 337 pages, all of which promise intrigue and adventure

  1. Holy moly, Kurt! Thanks so much for the plug. I surely appreciate it. Small press is a rough go, and I very much appreciate the plug. I am always happy to answer any questions about the novel. Also, I am busy recording an audiobook of it for those too busy to read.

  2. Half assed review…No, the book is top notch. But I’m only half way through so don’t give away the ending yet. I’ll give the other part of the review when I finish. It’s a time thing. I just don’t have the time I need to do everything I need to do. And I’m supposed to be retired! I’m busier now than when I worked full time.

    Seriously, it’s just the kind of book I love to read. Characters that could be sitting in the room with you telling you their story. You can almost taste the moonshine and hear the war coming down around your ears. Buy it! Read it! And when is the sequel coming out? Come on JHC get busy, or are you retired too?
