Kindle & Nook

I have recently returned from another wonderful visit to Lake George and the Adirondack State Park.  I had a few book signings and got to see a number of great people who had read Desperate Hours and came looking for Desperate Days.  I can’t express how grateful I am that these books are finding an audience and people seem to enjoy them enough to want more of the Matt O’Malley series.

In response to a large number of inquires Eileen and I decided it was time to move into the Twenty-first Century and get Desperate Hours and Desperate Days into e-book formats.  Since I have the technical skills of your average head of lettuce it fell to Eileen to figure out how to accomplish this goal.  I am thrilled to announce that she worked on it while I was away and now both books are available on either Kindle or Nook.

  1. I was delighted to meet and learn about you during your return to Florida on your return flight! Tom, you are a quick read, and I knew that I had to see about this project of yours. You played it down in light of our discussion of the “Unbroken”. Two weeks after returning from Florida, I secured a place on Phantom Island only 100 feet from Glenn Island, where I was able to find your book somewhere between the 5 cent bubble gum and the day old newspaper at the camp store. I don’t read fiction. Now I do.

    This is one of the best books that I have ever read – ever. The story was intriguing and certainly believable. My family kids me about “terrorism” on lake George, where they have been catching little fish and learning to water ski since toddlers. I had my doubts, but am now a believer.

    Most impressive to me is the non-fiction that you bring into the story of the history and framework of Lake George. After some thought, I can tell you that I would have loved the book even if I was not familiar with Lake George. What a story!

    • Ken, thanks so much for writing and for your very kind comments. Thanks also for making the dreary flight to Florida pass so quickly. I hope the referral I gave you was some help, but if not please feel free to contact me again and I’ll make other suggestions. Enjoy the winter and I will eagerly await the coming summer and my return to Lake George!

  2. Just finished both your books. A neighbor in Bolton (Pioneer Village) lent them to me, but they were signed and I dd not want to chance damaging them….so I bought them on Kindle. It’s fun to read about the area since I have a home there. There is a guy who writes about Sanibel Island, FL (Randy Wayne White – I think). I vacation in Sanibel, so I always enjoyed his books.
    I just love LG so much. Started going there before we were even married and now our kids are 33 & 31.
    You probably are aware of this……but I wanted to mention 2 mistakes you made in the second book. While having two different phone conversations with Carol, instead of using her name, you used the name of Erin.
    Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your next book.

    • Barbara, thank you so much for taking the time to write, and please accept my apologies for being so slow to respond, but things have been hectic for me so working the website slipped down on my priority list. I enjoyed your comments although I am embarrassed to say that you are right–good catches on the name. I have a long list of corrections that I will soon make. If you like Randy White you might want to think about trying H. Terrell Griffin. He writes mysteries set on Long Boat Key. I too just love it at Lake George. I hope your children have wonderful childhood memories of the lake and will want to come back with their own families. I wish I could spend more time in Lake George, but I am pretty much just a summer visitor I’d love to see it in the fall. Winter is probably a bit too tough for my Florida blood.
