Trying the Free Book Route
I’ve been reading about all these authors putting a book in their series on Kindle for free, and all the many downloads which resulted in sales of the other books in the series. What made me decide to try it was Sheila Lowe’s article she wrote for this very blog.
Because I’ve never been happy with the sales for my Rocky Bluff P.D. series—not because of the money but because I felt like it should have more readers, I thought I go ahead and try this.
I chose to put Angel Lost up for the free offering because I’ve always loved this book. I enjoyed writing it and according to the reviews, readers enjoyed it too.
So from June 20 to 24 at midnight, anyone who is so inclined, can down load Angel Lost for free:
Here are some of the reviews:
In ANGEL LOST, author

Reading a F.M. Meredith Rocky Bluff novel is like having a wonderful family visit—without having to travel farther than your favorite chair. Once again, Marilyn delivers a story you want to get into, a mystery you want to unravel (several actually), and characters you like and want to root for. In “Angel Lost,” F.M.’s Rocky Bluff Police Department “family” must really come together to save one of their own--with a little help from an angel. A most enjoyable read. Thank you Marilyn!"

ANGEL LOST is the kind of story that hooks the reader’s curiosity from the first paragraph. It is another standalone in the Rocky Bluff P.D. crime series from F. M. Meredith, a pen name for Marilyn Meredith, the prolific writer who, among other her other works, also writes the popular Tempe Crabtree mysteries. ANGEL LOST is an engrossing story of small town police officers, their lives, professional and personal, and the inevitable interactions that their police work, plus living in a small town, provides them. Words and
deeds travel fast in these communities and there are few secrets kept intact in Rocky Bluff. The reader is placed among these insiders hearing the same whispers and gossip.
ANGEL LOST almost reminded me of reading the play OUR TOWN by Thornton Wilder where we become deeply involved with a group of seemingly ordinary characters. Here, we come to care about these people and we care what happens to them, the hallmark of a good story. In ANGEL LOST, Officers Stacey Wilbur and Doug Milligan are again the featured protagonists as the time for their soon-to-be wedding races toward them. But this is a crime series, after all, and the reader is confronted with several story lines that slowly and inevitably converge and climax as the wedding day draws near.
This is a suspenseful story with a bit of religious mysticism thrown into the mix—just enough to broaden the plot and provide added depth to the characterizations. It should appeal to a wide range of readers
and will provide a satisfying reading experience thanks to the author’s smooth and fluid writing style.= Kit Sloane
"A pervert threatens women joggers on the beach, a robber threatens wealthy homes on the bluff, and an angel watches over over the townspeople from a downtown window. F. M. Merediths' latest Rocky Bluff P. D. novel is a gentle human drama about loneliness and change, through which the reader is pulled, page after page, by an assortment of compelling criminal curiosities."
C. N. Nevets is an author of psychological suspense. His stories have been published in Genre Wars and Notes from Underground.
So why not try Angel Lost? What have you got to lose? Only the time it takes to read and enjoy it.
