Greetings, Fight Card Team!
We have some good stuff happening, which should serve to benefit all of the titles in our Fight Card series. Our very first Fight Card Romance: Ladies Night has just debuted on Amazon, and we are excited about its prospects.
Our Fight Card Romance novels are an attempt to reach out to another audience of readers by crossing the heart of the once immensely popular romance pulps with the current popularity of the romance genre, but with a boxing or MMA settings. While romance will feature prominently, the main story will still center on boxing, the big fight, and a happy resolution to the romance aspects of the tale.
With Ladies Night we welcome the first female author to our team, Carol Malone writing as Jill Tunney.
FIGHT CARD ROMANCE: LADIES NIGHT
Los Angeles, 1954 ...
Gangsters, crime, boxing – and romance ...
Jimmy Doherty, a hard-luck orphan from the south side of Chicago, was mentored in the sweet science of boxing by Father Tim Brophy, the Battling Priest of St. Vincent's Asylum for Boys. Jimmy’s fists were good enough to take him to LA where he has begun his rise up the local fight-cards. He has big plans to be a contender and even bigger plans for Lindy – his trainer’s only daughter, who's sweeter than apple pie and harder to resist.
But when Lindy is arrested for killing a boxer with ties to gangster Mickey Cohen, Jimmy is forced to join forces with the arresting detective – who would like to do much more with Lindy than put her in handcuffs – in a desperate search for the real killer.
Love can be murder – in the ring and out ...
Coming up later this month will be a full two weeks of blog touring and podcasts around the Internet supporting all of the Fight Card titles. This will be followed by another concerted effort in October. Thx to new Fight Card team member Jeremy Jones (who has come on board with a new Fight Card novel set in Alaska for 2014) for his help getting us visibility on a number of high traffic blogs.
The latter part of September will see the debut of Anthony Venutolo’s terrific Front Page Palooka featuring east coast sportswriter and all round gadabout, Nick Moretti, struggling for survival in the dark corners of Hollywood’s film studios.
October will finally see the debut of my long delayed Felony Fists sequel Swamp Walloper. I’m currently deep in the swamps of the Bayou Sauvage outside of New Orleans, and Patrick Felony Flynn is in over his head.
Thx as always goes to David Foster, our Fight Card man down under, for his yeoman efforts with our e-covers and his work with the paperback files and covers.
Hank Brown has beat us to the punch with the first audio version of a Fight Card novel, Tomato Can Comeback, which is available via Amazon/Audible at this LINK ... Other audio versions are in progress with more information to come.
Keep Punching ... Good things are coming ...
