Can You Help Me Launch Twenty-four Days?
I’m finally ready to publish the next in the Rowe-Delamagente series, Twenty-four Days:
A former SEAL, a brilliant scientist, a love-besotted nerd, and a quirky AI have twenty-four days to stop a terrorist attack. The problems: They don’t know what it is, where it is, or who’s involved.
I have a cover:
…a good Kirkus review:
A blistering pace is set from the beginning: dates open each new chapter/section, generating a countdown that intensifies the title’s time limit. Murray skillfully bounces from scene to scene, handling numerous characters, from hijackers to MI6 special agent Haster. … A steady tempo and indelible menace form a stirring nautical tale
…a review from a valued reader:
“This is great!” — from my sister
…a second-level blurb
A female Naval officer assigned to the cruiser, USS Bunker Hill, is deployed to protect the US and its allies from a nuclear threat spearheaded by North Korea. Before she finishes, America will become embroiled in a dramatic naval battle, a hunt for two hijacked submarines, and preparation to defend against space-based weapons.
And someone unexpected will fall in love.
…successful upload to Amazon Kindle.
…ten questions potential readers want to know about my book:
…and a modest amount of courage, but I need your help. As a self-pubbed Indie author, ‘how we roll’ is by spreading the news via word of mouth. I’m looking for bloggers who will help me by participating in a blog hop to celebrate the launch of my new book:
Feature Twenty-four Days on your blog between May 15th-31st. This can be posting my blurb (summary, book’s availability, excerpt), one of the ten interesting questions I’ve put together with insider knowledge on the story, or a creative approach you prefer that will help me launch my book. If May 15th-31st doesn’t work for you, any time is fine.
The sign-up form below includes space where you can include your published book. If you will add a review to Amazon on Twenty-four Days, I’d be happy to return the favor with your book.
I will start the party by including a list in my post on May 15th of where I’ll be during the blog hop, with a link to your site.
If you’re willing to help me launch Twenty-four Days by sharing the excitement with your community, please complete the form below, telling me how you’d like to participate:

BTW, here’s a preview provided by Kindle.
