Friday Feature and Two Book Giveaway

A New Thriller Series

Today I am pleased to feature a new series by indie author Samuel Marquis and an opportunity to be one of the first to read the books.

“Indie crusader Samuel Marquis doesn’t just talk about doing things on his own terms – he’s publishing seven novels in the next year and has also written the outlaw attitude into his stories. The author’s thrilling debut novel “The Slush Pile Brigade,” chronicling the adventure of an unknown author’s quest for an apology for his stolen manuscript, releases Sept. 15, 2015, and his second book, “Blind Thrust” on Oct. 6, 2015.”

by Samuel Marquis
Publisher: Mount Sopris Publishing
Publication Date: October 6th 2015
Format: Paperback | 307 pages

Earthquakes are plaguing the Front Range between Denver and Colorado Springs – land that has never known seismic activity. Joe Higheagle, a geologist, serves as project manager for the Fortune 100 green energy company Quantrill Ventures. He witnesses a pipeline rupture that could very well be the cause of the earthquakes devastating the area. Quantrill, the CEO, is Higheagle’s biggest client and the reason for his career success – but after discovering the real truth behind the company’s actions, the Native American scientist questions whether his loyalty is to his career or his land. More importantly, once he solves this terrible dilemma, can the earthquakes even be stopped and those responsible even be brought to justice, or has time run out?

About the Author

Samuel Marquis believes in the stories of Nick Lassiter and Joe Higheagle. Having worked with agents and publishers previously, he has made the choice to indie publish his novels. He lives in Colorado with his wife and three children and holds the position of Vice-President – Hydrogeology with a national environmental consulting firm. His second novel, “Blind Thrust,” the actual book stolen in “The Slush Pile Brigade,” is inspired by his work as a professional hydrogeologist.
