Christmas and Birthdays Rolled into One!

It’s hard to believe but The Cutting goes on sale everywhere today, June 23rd. It’s been more than three years since I wrote that first line, Fog can be a sudden thing on the Maine coast. Waiting for this day, I’ve felt kind of like a kid waiting for both Christmas and his birthday rolled into one!  And now it’s here.

While I’m sure I’ll be thrilled if the book sells well, I think my greatest pleasure will come from hearing from readers who have truly enjoyed the story.

So please, if you have a chance to read The Cutting, let me know what you think. I’d love to hear from you.

    Just finished reading the Cutting. What a great premise for a first book. I look forward to reading more about McCabe. Thought you might want to know…I found your book listed as new fiction at my local library. The brief synopsis sounded interesting and I requested the book. Read it in two days before going to work, managing to get some breakfast stains on a couple of the pages. I don’t think the librarian will see them, they’re very small. Keep up the good work and I’ll look for you in the stacks the next time I’m in Portland.
