Swimming with the Fishies!

Another buddy of mine over at From the Write Angle is publishing his ebook! Pete Morin's Diary of a Small Fish is now available. Pete has an awesome sense of humour and this is sure to be a great book. Here's the blurb:

When Paul Forte is indicted by a federal grand jury, everyone suspects prosecutor Bernard (don’t call him “Bernie”) Kilroy has more on his mind than justice. Then the FBI agent in charge of Paul’s case gives him a clue to the mystery: Kilroy is bent on settling an old family score, and he’s not above breaking the law to do it.

Paul is already dealing with the death of his parents and divorce from a woman he still loves. Now, with the support of an alluring grand juror, Paul must expose the vindictive prosecutor’s own corruption before the jury renders a verdict on his Osso Buco.
 
Sounds great, doesn't it?
 

Pete Morin has been a trial attorney, a politician, a bureaucrat, a lobbyist, and a witness (voluntary and subpoenaed) to countless outrages. He combines them all in this debut novel.
Pete’s short fiction has appeared in NEEDLE, A Magazine of Noir, Words With Jam, 100 Stories for Haiti, and Words to Music. He published many of them in a collection titled Uneasy Living, available on Amazon and Smashwords.

When he is not writing crime fiction or legal mumbo jumbo, Pete plays blues guitar in Boston bars, enjoys the beach, food and wine with his wife, Elizabeth, and their two adult children, and on rare occasion, punches a fade wedge to a tight pin surrounded by sand or water. He lives in a money pit on the seacoast south of Boston, in an area once known as the Irish Riviera.

Pete is represented by Christine Witthohn of Book Cents Literary Agency.

It's so exciting to have another friend step into the ebook waters. I'm buying a ton of ebooks lately. How about you? Have you been reading more books electronically too?

  1. ...it's such an easy addiction to fall victim to, the e-book purchasing craze...and I'm right at your heels, Jemi, click-click-add to shelf ;)

    This one sounds like fun, will be hopping over to check it out.

  3. The majority of my book reading has been via my kindle. I love it so much.

    This book sounds great. I love the cover too.

  4. Lynda - I love the cover too - matches the title so well! I've used my Kindle and my iPod a TON for reading lately! :)

  5. Hey Jemi,
    "Diary of a Small Fish!" Right then, I shall go and check out those links, just for the halibut. Of course, you might expect, based on the title of the novel, that I might attempt a bunch of predictable fish puns, hook you in, have you reeling with laughter. Mention something about prawn on the internet, but no, I would never do that, because I'm starting to flounder :)

  6. Gary - I kinda knew the fishy puns were on the way! I think you got them pretty well covered!! :)

  7. I wasn't going to carp on. Thought it best to be rather koi :)

  8. Gary - you totally crack me up! :)

  9. It's too easy to buy ebooks. I love the ones with the reasonable price of $2.99.

  10. Sounds like a great book, and yes, I am reading more books electronically!

  11. Diary of a Small Fish looks interesting.

    I read mainly ebooks. But I'm buying more than I can read. The ease in buying is quite addictive.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Susan - it is too easy! I've bought far more books than I would normally buy because the prices are so reasonable!

    Elle - it does, doesn't it? Me too - in fact I'm currently reading yours! :)

    Medeia - it really is addictive. I've bought quite a few of the Amazon daily deals and can't keep up!

  13. That does sound good - congrats to Pete!

    I don't have an e-reader yet. I'm definitely thinking about getting one. My problem is that I share my books with my kids, and I'm not about to give up my e-reader when they want to read one of my books. Sure would be convenient, though. And I'm running out of space on my bookshelves!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Congratulations to Pete! And yes, I read eBooks now exclusively.

  15. Fun stuff! I love crime novels... As for ebooks, I pretty much only read on my Kindle. But it's just so easy. I'll still get a paper book if that's my only option, and I like rereading my old PBs...

    Best of luck to Pete! :o) <3

  16. Sounds like a fun novel! I'd say about half my books are e-books right now. I still like to share my books and unfortunately still need to do this through hard copy books but that may change in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, that one sounds terrific. Don't have a Kindle yet (thinking it will be my xmas gift to myself, lol), but that's going on my wish list!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Can't afford to be buying anything these days, but I would imagine that I might be considering e-books once the money starts rolling in. But I still prefer the regular old-fashioned books made out of paper.

  19. Sounds like a Grisham novel! And when I see that, I mean that in very complimentary way; I love Grisham. The title and the cover are so clever!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Your friend's book sounds like a fast-paced read! And the cover is awesome.

    I'm still a dinosaur and don't yet have an ereader. *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sounds like an interesting read, but I'm not part of the e-reader crowd yet.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Susan - it does sound great! I love my ereader, but that is a down side! I've got some MG books on my Kindle that I'd like to put in my class, but that's kinda hard! :)

    Alex - it's amazing how quickly we've gotten used to them. I still do my library books, but I'm doing a lot more on my Kindle!

    Leigh - I use mine a lot too. It is so easy. I do have some favourite paper books I'll always use to reread, but I'm more and more leaning to my Kindle.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lynn - you're right! It is hard to share those ereaders - I'm not giving mine up.

    Tara - I got mine as a birthday gift and I love it! It's so easy to pick up new books - especially by my blog friends!

    Lee - I have a lot of favourite paper books I'll never give up too. I didn't think I'd love an ereader so much, but it's really nice to read with!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Margo - Pete has a terrific sense of humour. I love the title and the cover too. I like Grisham novels too - I think my favourite was Pelican Brief :)

    Kathryn - I didn't expect to really love my ereader - but I do! :) There are so many of my blog buddies who have books for sale only electronically, so it's handy!

  25. Sounds like great book! I'll have to check it out for sure.

    I read about 1/3 my books on Kindle these days. I love my Kindle but I still love paper books. Especially love the Kindle for traveling. :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sounds like a wonderful book! I haven't hopped on the ebook bandwagon yet, but I do purchase ones to read on my computer to support fellow writer friends :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Jennifer - I originally wanted my Kindle for travelling, but I find I'm using it more at home as well. :)

    Writing Nut - me too! I just can't read on the computer screen. I spend too much time on it as is, and my eyes can't take the strain. It's so nice that that's an option though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. So many books, so little time. *sigh* Another great sounding novel. Thanks for the heads up.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I've joined the e-book craze too. I even bought a book in the middle of the night the other night when I couldn't sleep. It's tooo easy to spend money. Now what did you say the title was... tap, tap, tap

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kari - exactly! It is so hard to keep up with them all. I think I have about 10 waiting on my Kindle for me!

    Rosalind - It's soooooo easy to pick up these books! I've bought a lot more than I usually buy. I used to get most of mine from the library - now I buy!

  31. While I'm a bit too time crunched to read outside my genre, I really love the cover. Did Pete create this himself of did he hire a designer?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Pete's short fiction mentioned above is also incredible! I read my copy in one sitting, quite moving!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Laurel - it is a great cover. I believe he had someone else design it for him. And I hear you on the time crunch!

    Mindy - I haven't read it yet, but it's waiting for me on my Kindle! :)

  34. I feel like I'm drowning in books. But there's nothing better to drown in. Other than maybe chocolate.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lisa - oooohhhh - that's a tough decision. Drown in books or chocolate... or both??? :)

  36. Congrats to Pete. My e-TBR list is growing every week. My Kindle is whimpering with the weight.

  37. Leslie - I know what you mean! It's sooooo easy to add books and there are so many good books to add! :)
