My book of the week is my supernatural thriller ROAD RASH. It’s 99c/99p at Amazon in the US and the UK for this week only!!
It’s the story of James Straley, a bank robber on the run with the proceeds of a botched bank robbery. It’s all he has. His crew is dead and his getaway car just died on him. He’s on foot with the cash when he comes across a two-car pileup. There’s no saving the drivers, but he can save himself by taking one of the wrecked cars. But he boosts the wrong set of wheels. Within an hour of driving off, he develops a rash that eats away at his flesh. No doctor can help him–only the car’s original owner. If Straley wants his skin back, he must journey on the road to redemption.
I have a real soft spot for this book. It was inspired by a trip to Guatemala and a run-in I had with Santeria. You can read all about my adventure here.
There’s also a great audio edition read by Ed Hunter. I love Ed’s voice and it’s probably my favorite reading that anyone has done of my books.
It’s available from iTunes, Kobo, B&N, Audible as well as Amazon. You can find all the links here.
Anyway, I hope you’ll snap up a copy. I think you’ll enjoy it.
Similarly to Kobo, a bunch of my ebooks and audiobooks are now on iTunes. I must admit I feel like a bit of a rock star because I have an artist’s page on iTunes. So if you’re an Apple iTunes person, you can find all my titles listed here. Just make sure you get the correct “Simon Wood” books. While there are a number of my foreign language titles, please note that I am not the author of the German BDSM erotica…that’s some other guy…really it is. 🙂
My Simon Janus titles are also on iTunes here.
Any questions or issues, let me know. Also, feel free to share with others. I won’t stop you.
I hope you can support me. Thanks!
POSTSCRIPT: Apple have made one of their never-ending updates and unfortunately, my author page no longer shows all my titles although they are on the site. Just to confirm, my titles on iTunes are: DID NOT FINISH, HALF-INCHED, HOT SEAT, THE FALL GUY, FAST CRIMES, WORKING STIFFS, CRESTFALLEN, LOWLIFES & SHORT SHARP SHOCKS. You can find direct links on “BOOK” pages of this website.
I’m happy to announce the release of POURRITURE, the French edition of ROAD RASH. After the success of my first French book, L’évadée, it was only natural to give French readers something else to chew on. I’m looking forward to see their response to this story.
For those who read French, the storyline goes a little like this:
James Straley peut bien penser que son existence est maudite, mais elle n’a rien de comparable avec ce qui l’attend sur l’autoroute de la vie. Il est en fuite avec le butin d’un vol de banque loupé. C’est tout ce qu’il possède. Ses acolytes sont morts et sa voiture vient de tomber en panne. Il est à pied, avec l’argent, quand il aperçoit deux voitures impliquées dans un carambolage. Il lui est impossible de sauver les conducteurs, mais il peut se sauver lui-même en s’appropriant l’une des épaves. Manque de chance, il vole la mauvaise bagnole. Après une heure derrière le volant, il commence à développer une urticaire qui dévore sa chair. Aucun médecin ne peut l’aider – seul le propriétaire initial de la voiture en a le pouvoir. Si Straley veut récupérer sa peau, il doit entreprendre un long voyage sur le chemin de la rédemption, un voyage qui s’achèvera au cœur de l’Amérique Centrale.
So if you’re French or know someone French, I hope you’ll give this book a shot.
