Book Release: A Long Ways from Home … Share the Good News

A Long Ways from Home, the new Sgt. Windflower Mystery is now available for sale across the country and around the world. It will be trickling into bookstores far and wide over the next few weeks but it is not available for order from your favourite retailer. Please share this post and the good news with your friends and family.

A Long Ways from Home continues the adventures of Sgt. Windflower as he tries to solve crime and experience the joy and the sadness of life in small Newfoundland communities. Here’s what a few early readers had to say about it:

“I am a huge fan of this series, and this entry does not disappoint. I love the dialogue, the sense of place, Windflower’s devotion to Sheila, his strong sense of right and wrong, his belief in community policing, his love of his Cree culture, his fondness for peanut butter pie, and his love of a good book.”

Denise Zendel Santa Fe, New Mexico

…………………

“I’ve already read the first few drafts of this book and it is the best so far. Mike Martin really did a great job on this one. Be sure you get your copies when they came out!”

Elliott Youden Montreal, Canada

………………..

“This book has some action, a little suspense, and warm and mature love story. It has something for everyone. Do read it!”

Janet Sun Vancouver, Canada

a-long-ways-from-home-cover1.jpg

 

For those of you who are just discovering the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series here is some more information about the first four books in the series. They can be read as stand-alone stories, but if you want all of the flavour and colour of Sgt. Windflower’s adventures you can pick up the rest of the series anytime. They are all available online through Amazon all over the world and through Chapters/Indigo in Canada.

Here is a snap shot and a cover shot of the first three books in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series.

The Walker on the Cape (Book 1 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series)

Novel - The Walker on the Cape

A man’s body is found in a small fishing community on the East Coast. First everyone thinks it’s a heart attack or stroke but then it’s discovered that he was poisoned. Who would do this and why? Finding that out falls to Winston Windflower and his side-kick Eddie Tizzard.  Along the way they discover there are many more secrets hidden in this small community and powerful people who want to keep it that way.

The Body on the T (Book 2 in the Sgt. Windflower Mystery Series)

bodyonthet_featured

Sgt. Winston Windflower is enjoying an idyllic life in the small town of Grand Bank, Newfoundland when a mysterious and very dead body washes up on a nearby beach. Follow along with Windflower and his team as he tries to solve this mystery and uncovers a whole lot more lurking under the fog on the southeast coast off Atlantic Canada. Windflower is the ultimate outsider, an RCMP officer and a Cree from northern Alberta, yet he feels right at home with the rich culture, food and history of this part of the world. But his world is shaken by a series of events that threaten his new-found happiness. And it all starts with the discovery of The Body on the T.
