Introducing Novelist Patrick Balester

I got an email yesterday from Patrick Balester. He's published his first novel! This is quite an accomplishment. I've heard so many stories of people who have had great difficulty publishing their works, but Pat got it done. You can check out the first chapter of the book on his website linked below. I read it and couldn't stop. I even entered the contest so that I might win a coveted autographed copy of this murder mystery. The prose really come to life and it's easy to put yourself in the action. Please, check out the website linked below and read the first chapter.

When Pat is touring the country, appearing on Oprah, having his books turned into screen plays featuring Matt Damon or some other big Hollywood star, we can point to it and say, "I went to high school with the guy who wrote the book!" Great work, Pat and congratulations on getting your first novel published!

Here's the email from Pat:

Hope your summer is going well. Looking forward to it myself. I'll try to make it to the July 18th celebration...I'll be in Kingston around the fourth of July at least, so I'll probably see Chuck and Mike and a few others.

Just wanted to give you my new email address and website. The old one still works, but I built a new one to celebrate my first novel being published. In the Dismal Swamp, a murder mystery, which comes out June 24th.

Can you add this new email to our list at the BOR web site? Thanks!

By the way, I'm giving away five autographed copies of my book to anyone who visits my website and submits the form on the Book Contest page. It's not too late to enter the drawing.

Thanks! Hope to see you sometime this year.

Pat Balester

Was it an accident...or was it Murder?
