Murder On The Etowah River – New Short Story

I started a short story several months ago titled Murder on the Etowah, once completed it will be available through Amazon – (Kindle).

The story takes place in Cartersville and Rome, Georgia during the winter months. The main plot deals with an ex-drug trafficker Felipe Castillo that is found dead in the Etowah River, along with his wife and son. The reason being Felipe took off with ten million dollars and quit the cartel and that kind of behavior is never allowed by any drug cartel in the world today!

Simon and Santo team up to investigate the murders along with a trouble making DEA liaison based out of Atlanta. The two DEA agents match wits with a deadly troubleshooter for the drug cartel who has been sent to find the ten million dollars. A man known as Angle Cárdenas kills first and asks questions later as he hunts for anyone who can lead him to the ten million dollars. Angle leaves a long trail of human corpses behind him which makes it easier for Simon and Santo to track him by.  

However, there are several major twists for Simon and one of the twists deals with a beautiful Hispanic woman by the name of Delores. Her husband is being hunted by the drug cartel troubleshooter Angle Cárdenas. The lady’s husband was a lawyer for Felipe Castillo and he has the ten million dollars hidden in Bahamian bank accounts. But that’s not all, Felipe Castillo actually had three boys not just one. Delores and her husband have custody of the boys and Angle Cárdenas wants them dead also!

So get ready readers for a great action-thriller short story. You will also meet Cooper the Chocolate Labrador, my real life one year old lab puppy.

November 2011 Update

As you can see the web site has changed, many thanks to CraigP. for his insight and creativity. As you can see there are drastic changes and certain sections from the old site are no longer posted. I will add the Ramirez family tree and its history back to the site sometime in the future. Craig is looking for a way to add back the recipe section, but in a way to make it easier to find a recipe.

My wife and I have finished editing Emerald Tides which is the new name for what was the first “POD” from Authorhouse New Tides. The book has been rewritten and the actual count was 72 additional pages for a total of 284 pages. I am presently looking for a Literary Agent.

The major changes to the book are that I added was how Simon was gunned down in Miami. Who sold him out and his team of field agents? How his boss Christian Bell made the decision to get him out of Miami and who was responsible for his name change. I have also added his earlier life in high school when he was dating Lori.

So get ready, Simon is coming back and soon.

Finishing Up “High Tides”

I have just finished the complete editing of “High Tides”, which of course is the third book.  So far it looks like it will be 433 pages, and should be an enjoyable reading experience. Its now being checked over “edited” one more time by a friend and should be ready for print within a month. I am looking at releasing the book in eBook and Kindle version’s through Amazon and not in hardback or paperback. I will be handling the entire process from this point on. Conversion to PDF, book cover, and whatever else an author does to get his books out to the public. As always its a learning experience.

I am also rewriting the first book “New Tides” and will re-release sometime in the coming month’s. I will be adding over 100 pages and changing the format.

The forth book “Storm Tides” will start going through its first editing and when I am happy with the editing, will release through Amazon as an eBook also.

The fifth book “Low Tides” is half written and my goal is to complete it when the other books are completed and released. My ultimate goal is to have 5 books out for reading by early 2012.

I guess that’s it for now, my thanks and gratitude goes to all those who have supported this dream of mine.
