When I was a kid, I would find the many wonderful cheap paperbacks of the 1980s left behind by tourists who just wanted a cheap and entertaining read while they sat, covered in suntan oil, baking on the beach. The books were inexpensive, smaller than today’s books, in those great classic cream colored trade paperback pages. I wanted to do a tribute to those books and the stories within, which drove me to write The Unmerciful Sea. This version is a slightly smaller print and book size, more in line with those great paperbacks of yore, but it includes the same story as in the larger book. Look for a little secret hint near the end of the book in this one!
The links provided currently use Bookshop.org and Amazon. Bookshop is an alterative to the Big A that provides both a trustworthy site to buy books, as well as helping to support independent book stores and authors, such as me. Bookshop uses Ingram, the major distributor to book stores, to fulfill the orders. Amazon offers the ease of purchase for its many users, and pays authors a high commission. As much as I would prefer you to order from local shops, I know that there is a need for convenience in purchases as well, and have provided links to both options.
Please note that at this time, the Retro Edition of The Unmerciful Sea is only available through my site or through the single online retailer. This is due to its particular size and layout. I will be working on getting that book version available through Ingram soon. Nag's Head is only available through Amazon as well, for similar reasons. Both books can still be ordered by your favorite book store.
