Warning! Danger! Shameless Self-Promotion Today

I’m not one of those people who visits hourly to see how many copies of my books have been sold or if my ranking has changed. There’s simply too many other things to do. Still, I do pop in now and then to post a blog and make sure my books haven’t disappeared from the pages of Amazon, which has been known to happen. So, imagine my surprise when I discovered three new reviews posted in January, and all of them good. Here’s excerpts from two of them.

From a reader named Betty Gelean:

“A cyber-mystery with a cast of characters many of whom I would like to give a good shake and others whose foibles I find myself laughing and shaking my head over. Debra Purdy Kong is an award-winning author and with this book she has gained another fan. The book is well-written, the characters interact exactly as they should. With three previous computer experts prior to hiring Alex, there are lots of opportunities for diversions, misdirections and straight-out lies. The book picks up momentum as it goes along until a flat out race to the end. An easy and enjoyable read, I expect it will be an interesting and exciting series, This is the second of the Alex Bellamy mystery series. I'll be curious about what he will get himself into next. 4 1/2 stars.”

And this from someone named Susan P.:

“I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, computers or perhaps a combination of the two. It is a page turner with more than one surprise coming at the reader, that not only were unexpected, but make one shake one's head in disbelief. The author keeps the reader glued to the book until the final sentence, and to this review, that is reason enough to get this book and immerse yourself in it. Read it and see for yourself what makes Fatal Encryption one electrifying read!”
