Yesterday, I serendipitously went to The Curt Jester and came upon the following post.
"David Athey the author of “Danny Gospel” let me know that his book is free today on Amazon for Kindle/Kindle App users. This is a quite excellent first novel. My original review.
His latest novel is “Christopher”, which I reviewed here."
Needless to say, cheapskate that I am, I went to Amazon.com and downloaded the novel. Good thing. I went back today and the price has gone up to $5.38.
I've read about 20%. I was nearly put off by the first few pages, but hung in there. Now, I'm glad I did. It took Athey a bit to get into the groove, but the novel picks up. I'll write a bit more about the novel when I've finished reading it.
