Favorite mystery author? Giveaways up and running

June 26, 2017 | By Jim Stovall | Filed in: newsletter.

Hi there,

Who is your favorite mystery/thriller author(s)? Do you have a favorite book?

Two of my favorites are Michael Connelly and Ian Rankin, and the book that sticks with me the most is Connelly’s The Lincoln Lawyer. That book was made into a very good movie several years ago. It is more of a thriller than a mystery, but I remember being struck by his concept and its pacing when I read it. It’s one of the things that inspired me to write Kill the Quarterback.

So, who is your favorite mystery/thriller author or book — or both? I’d like to hear from you about this. Just reply to this email.


The book giveaways that I told you about last week are still up and available:

Combat art

One of my interests is the art produced by American wars, particularly that produced on the battlefield. To that end, I have collected all of the Library of Congress drawings associated with the battle of Gettysburg and am publishing them in five short volumes that I can make available free or very inexpensively.

The first, Battlelines: Road to Gettysburg, became available this week. On Amazon Kindle, it is $0.99, but on Barnes and Noble NookKoboScribd, and, Inkterait is free. I have put in a request to Amazon to make it free (that’s what you have to do), but the folks there have not responded yet.

I would very much like for you to download a copy, take and look, and let me know what you think of it. I will be publishing four more volumes related to Gettysburg in the very near future.

Point Spread

If you have read Point Spread, my latest novel, and want to post a review, here is the place to do it.

I hope you have a great weekend.

From the writing desk,


Jim Stovall
