Northern Heat, the novel

Post by elliott70 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 1:30 pm

My book, Northern Heat, is now available on KIndle Select, for those cheap 'bored' members that have not read it.


:D


Sorry for the cheap promotion, Lee, but if I don't do it who will?

You're a well rounded guy, Elliott. Someone who crunches numbers but can also write. Bit of a rarity.

(now, when do I get that tasty beverage of my choice for the props?) :P

Aside from Sats81, Westmetro, Karl, and a few others who among us; bored members aren’t well heeled. For cripes sakes we spend our free time hanging out on an outdated message bored!

5 or so chapters in it is pretty good, Prairie Lakes substitutes as as a good southern Minnesota town. Tim O’Brien stuff. I struggle with the possible motive as an easy way out.....but I haven’t finished it yet. I read it every day at lunch!

The premise is good. The legal ramifications of the Sara Wrd character are too much to overcome. Beyond what would be admissible in court....she clearly would lose her nursing license and the hospital would probably lose accreditation by allowing such actions. Pillow talk would be allowed, the huge conflict of interest is beyond reproach as a medical professional.

Thanks, Goldy, but remember it is fiction.

I know it is fiction. I work in medicine....same as people who work in law enforcement would take issue with law enforcement or soldiers take issue with fiction in war books. Dan Brown takes heat by historians....

It is not a slight just an observation, even Mark Twain wasn’t beyond reproach in subject matter.

I usually read non fiction as history intrigues me as the truth is usually stranger than fiction. I had to put it down to read “Sledge Patrol”. 90% of what I read is non fiction so it is hard for me to separate the two.

You have written a good book, doing what I do the Sara Ward character bothers me but doesn’t take away from the story you tell.
The whole setting reminds me a whole lot of Waseca and is very familiar which makes it a good read.
