New Book Release: A Bittersweet Science

16 Aug

Happy to announce the release of my new novel (actually wrote it several years ago but, hey, I’ve been busy) A Bittersweet Science. Lengthier and a bit more serious than my previous novel, Pascal’s Wager, A Bitter Sweet Science is an epic look into the world of big-time boxing from the perspectives of the many individuals who make up this frequently brutal, yet often entrancing sport. But more than just a boxing story, it examines the profound philosophical question of whether the ends really do justify the means in a world without objective morality. If you want to see more, you can go to Amazon here:

You can purchase the book now, which is much appreciated, but I will be having a giveaway day on Amazon SUNDAY, AUGUST 19, 2012, when the book can be downloaded for FREE. If you do not have an e-reading device, Amazon will download a free ereader to your computer. So I’d encourage everyone to go pick up a copy at some point this Sunday and let me know what you think.

Below is the cover photo. A special thanks to:

    I’ll be interested to read this. I used to fight full contact martial arts (not boxing I know) but the winner was usually the person still conscious at the end. I gave it when I realised that most of my friend’s were becoming brain dead. I wasn’t a rocket scientist before I began, so I knew it was time.

      Thanks, Roger. Definitely safer to write about than to do, though there are a few editors I’d sometimes like to take a swing at.
