is Facebook for readers. If you love to read, this is the place to learn about all the upcoming books in your favorite genres. In fact, many authors giveaway books to Goodreads readers to build readership and gain reviews–that word-of-mouth buzz that can help books by new authors (like me) get discovered. Even the established best-selling authors giveaway books on Goodreads. I won an advance reader copy (ARC) of one of Jody Picoult’s books once. *Fan squeal*

Soooo, I’m hosting a giveaway of ten signed paperback copies of West of Famous to readers in the U.S. and Canada. To win one, simply enter the drawing in September and Goodreads will select ten winners. The winners will receive their books in early October.

To my readers in the U.S.–thank you! To my readers in Canada–Thanks, eh?

To my readers in Japan:

Doumo arigatou gozaimasu! If you are a fan of my Compass Crimes books and you live in Japan, add your name to my newsletter so I can let you know when there will be giveaways of digital copies for you. At this time it is a logistical and cost issue to run a giveaway of paperbacks from the U.S. to Japan.

Why would you want this book?

5-Star Reader's Favorite Rating

The action and mounting tension in West of Famous doesn’t stop till the end. This is a book you won’t want to set aside for later. Coupled with a touching rendering of family love and values, along a belief in God, West of Famous will appeal to all who believe in the ultimate goodness of human beings. Don’t hesitate to read this one.

Reader’s Favorite 5-star review by Viga Boland.

Fisher also packs the pages with a supporting cast of FBI agents, investigators, Florida retirees, and eco-tourists that add intrigue and subplots which propel the story forward. The author expertly develops fringe characters to add another layer of relationships and unpredictability to this riveting crime story. With an emphasis on following the evidence and clues to find the kidnappers, crime fiction fans will appreciate the details of the investigation. Fisher’s ability to anchor the story with a strong sense of place makes this a memorable story with a unique Floridian flair.”

Author Linda Fairstein

WEST OF FAMOUS is a terrifically smart, strong thriller from Joni Fisher, whose crime novels get better with each entry in the series.

In researching this book, I lived on a trawler named Seeker for a week. What an amazing way to live! This was the view one morning.
