Late-breaking book bargain

I can't believe I forgot to put this on my blog until now. DUKE CITY DESPERADO, my latest e-book written as Max Austin, is on sale for only 99 cents. But the sale ends Saturday, 10/3, so you must act quickly!

DUKE CITY DESPERADO is the third book in a loose trilogy of crime tales set here in Albuquerque, aka Duke City. In this one, two lowlifes try to rob a drive-thru bank and things go very wrong. It's a punchy, funny thriller and I think you'll like it. The other two Max Austin books are only $2.99. All are published by Alibi, the new crime imprint at Penguin/Random House.

I'm deep into the first draft of a new crime novel about a woman who bails out of the federal witness protection program and lands in trouble. Fun book so far.

A storm front is moving into New Mexico, just in time for the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Bad weather for the balloons, but good weather for writing.

Keep looking up!
