A Callous Murder.
A Calculated Theft.
A Drive for Vengeance.
And Time is Running Out…
Searing with suspense, sex appeal and stunningly vivid action, FATAL FLAW is the thriller of the year!
A masterful must-read for fans of Scott Mariani and Andy McDermott.
Alexander Webb is convinced her death is no accident, yet no one in authority believes him. A Japanese assignment to realise the design of a revolutionary sports coupe, should have been fun. To begin with it was, then one phone call changed everything. Her diary and a crucial photograph are all that he has to track down the truth and exact his revenge.
A blisteringly fast adventure that delves the global art crime underworld, hurtling through the streets of Tokyo, Bangkok and Hong Kong, to the deadly slopes of Mount Fuji where the hunters become the hunted.

Have you been published? Yes
If published, please tell us about it. I am a self published author. My Novel Fatal Flaw is available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk . The ISBNs are as follows:
Paperback: 978-1466497351 eBook: 978-1-908400-87-1
I have not saught an agent so far. I thought it would be prudent to take advantage of the predicted surge in eBook sales anticipated over the Christmas period and the subsequent demand for novel downloads expected in January when readers open their new Kindles etc.
I would love to be represented in the near future and would also like to build a long term relationship with a publisher, preferably with personal contact in the UK.
I released the book at the end of November 2011 and sales are averaging 100 copies per day at present. I am actively marketing at present so the 2nd book in the series may have to be shelved for a couple of months. You can see the first chapter of book 2 on my website http://www.laurencebradbury.com
What are you working on now? Book 2 of the Alexander Webb series. At present it has the working title "HearSay", the header of the first chapter.

What are your thoughts about publishing? I love to have a book in my hands when I read, the smell of ink and paper is part of the experience. That is why I released my novel in both paperback and eBook formats.
I did some extensive research into eBooks before publishing. My findings were astonishing. In the UK, eBooks are outselling hardbacks by 2:1. My local superstore which sells Kindles and the like, reported selling 1 kindle for every paperback book sold in November. If this pattern continues we are likely to see a significant shift away from the printed word in favour of electronic publishing.
Can we quote you? Give us your favorite quote or saying. You can make it up or share one from someone you admire . I read a lot of books set in exotic places. Having travelled a great deal, I can spot if the author has been to a location, it's frustrating to me if it is obvious that he hasn't done his research properly.
My quote is: If you write about a place, you have to get it right!
Its been a while since I last contributed here, and let's face it, it's about time I did again.
For this blog post I've decided to promote a book I've recently read. I have nothing to gain from this other than to say it makes my soul feel good to promote the promising work of another author just getting her feet on the literary ladder.
Richelle Elberg offered her novel "Impunity" as a kindle freebee a month or so back as part of her marketing campaign. Intrigued I…Continue
