Spilled Milk – The latest thriller from Michael J. Scott

Posted: December 30, 2011 in Spilled Milk, The Writing Life

is now available through Smashwords.com! I’m very excited about this new release. Spilled Milk started as a NaNoWriMo project almost two months ago, and quickly grew beyond what I’d thought it’d be to the story it is now. Not only did I finish the 50k words in 30 days (that’s the NaNoWriMo challenge), but I kept going with the story until the whole thing wrapped up about a week ago. Seven weeks from concept to completion. I’ve wrapped up the editing (yeah, I know, a week to edit?!) and built the cover art (see? –>), and now it’s up and ready for you to enjoy!

Naturally, I’m releasing it via Amazon as well, but they take a little longer to review their books than Smashwords does, so I’m giving you the address for the Smashwords version. I’ll post the Amazon link as soon as I have it. Also, the book will be available in print through Createspace soon, though I’ve run into a little snag with converting the file for them.

Here’s the back cover blurb:

What would you do to protect your kids? For Gerrold Smith, a widower whose children have been taken from him by the courts, the answer is to hold the city hostage. What starts as a random act of violence quickly escalates into terrorist activity, and as Gerrold discovers the city’s dark secret he must choose between saving his own children, or sacrificing them to save even more.

At any rate, I hope you enjoy it. It’s a little darker than my Jefferson’s Road series, but still enjoyable.

Content Advisory: No sex (some discussion of rape and child pornography), some violence (guns, bombs, and car chases), mild profanity (no blasphemy). About 79,000 words (roughly 300 pages printed).
