My 2nd Detective Al Warner novel, BORN TO DIE, is on a Kindle Countdown promo, starting at $0.99 on Nov. 29, and going up to $1.99 late on Nov. 30 (usually $4.99. The promotion ends on Dec. 3. Don’t miss a chance to get this 5-Star reviewed novel, where Al Warner, on medical leave after a shootout at the end of DEATH’S ANGEL, helps Casey, a beautiful nurse, investigate a suspicious rash of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) deaths of 6-month-old boys. Casey’s obsession eventually puts her life in mortal danger, and only Warner can save her if he can find her in time. As usua, my readers are in for a surprise ending.

Become a Warner fan. Readers liken him to Patterson’s Alex Cross.

The 3rd Ai warner novel should be out by early Jan.

My award-winning novel, TRAPPED, is now on Amazon at reduced prices: Print @ $10.19 (was $12.95), and Kindle @ $5.99 (was $7.99). Trapped has about 50 reviews, nearly 40 of which are 5-Star & 4-Star. Here’s a link to the Amazon page, where you can read an excerpt:

I hope those of you who read and love it will write more reviews, and tell all your e-mail and Facebook buddies. Here are several of the reviews:

“Trapped” is a wonderful, gripping thriller that grabs the reader’s attention from the first page and refuses to let go.”

“I thought it was very well written and look forward to another book from this author.”

“I was instantly captured by this book because of it’s simplicity yet very complex story. It has a very unique story that you’d totally don’t want to miss out. I was hanging till I get my answers, I was absorbed in every possible way. This book totally caught me off guard with it’s diverse plot and very unique voice. It’s hard to imagine a world like this and I commend the author for writing this book with utmost fluidity and uniqueness.”

“Wow! A woman trapped in a body with only her mind and eyes working. What a dull book that should have been but this author allows us to see the world around her with truly wide open eyes. Exciting, mysterious, intriguing and phenomenal. A must read!”

Today’s Virtual Book Tour stop is at: http://bitsnbobsbooks.blogspot.com/2013/03/author-interview-george-bernstein.html?showComment=1363097499578#c7533470648220136546

It features a Guest Post by me and a feature of TRAPPED. Eventually, they’re supposed to do a review, too.

There was another interesting post by another “touring” author about critics, which I commented on. Withe 23 5-Star reveiws, the few 3-Stars I’ve received because someone got turned off by a few typos (can’t catch them all, no matter how many times one edits!) don’t really bother me. Another complained about “too much sex” (THAT should help sales, don’t you think?), so she missed the point of why it was there. Maybe that’s my fault, though. If someone doesn’t “get the point,” then the author may have failed to properly make it. Luckily, no one else has had that problem.

There are two Book Tour stops again tomorrow, with guest posts and features. I’ll send the links later.

Today’s stop on my Virtyual Book Tour is at “Creating Imaginations:

where the are doing a feature on TRAPPED. Tomorrow’s stop will be at “Brainy Reads:” http://brainyreads.blogspot.com/

where they will post one (or more) of several Guest Posts I’ve written. They are also doing a review of TRAPPED, but may not have it finished yet. By the end of the “Tour,” these various bloggers will have posted at least 13 more reviews, both on their own sites, and at places like Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari, etc. There may be more, too, because 8 of 10 dates are still open in March. Hopefully, some if not all of those will fill up soon.

My Author’s Page with Orangeberry, listing the entire schedule, is:

These are the last 2 days TRAPPED will be free on Kindle (through Sunday, Dec. 30). I really heartened by the response and the great reviews I’ve had. One reader wrote me that “…if your name were Patterson or DeMille, this would be an instant Best Seller.”

I just hope everyone who reads TRAPPED and loves it, will leave a review at Amazon and Goodreads, if possible…and contact all their friends.

I love to hear from you guys, so feel free to post comments or e-mail me at:

Thanks for your support.

Probably much like most authors, I thought I was pretty good. Unfortunately, we’re rarely a good judge of that…but out readers are!

I’ve got to admit, I’m a little awed by the terrific response Trapped has generated. All I’m hearing is how wionderful the book is, that they can’t put it down, and especially…that they LOVE the ending. One reader confessed she read the ending 3 times, she enjoyed it so much. Two nueroligists complimented me on the quality of my research into “Locked-in Syndrome.”

So far, only 5-Star reviews on Amazon, and several readers have bought multiple copies to give as gifts. I hope everyone who loves the book will leave a review at Amazon or Goodreads…or both…and then recommend Trapped to their friends and e-mail list. That’s how best-sellers are born!

Thanks again for all the wonderful support.
