Make Them Sorry, by Sam HawkenAnd so September comes to a close.  It’s the end of two months of release for Make Them Sorry (link), and I’m pleased to say positive reactions are still pouring into my inbox.  It means a lot to me, especially since Make Them Sorry means a lot to me.  The first two books in the series set the stage for what begins to happen in books three and four.  If you liked what happened in the latest, you’re going to love what comes next.

In the meantime, if you haven’t picked up a copy of Make Them Sorry, do me a solid and do so.  The book is priced to move at various online outlets — whichever you prefer, Amazon (link) or Barnes & Noble (link) — so there’s not much reason not to get it unless you just don’t dig Camaro Espinoza (link).  And if it’s the case that you don’t like Camaro, I totally get it and I’m cool with that.  Not everything is for everybody.  If you’ve absorbed anything from what I’ve written here about writing, you know that being successful is related to money, but it starts with being pleased with the work you produce.  Camaro makes me happy, and that’s more important than anything.

I should also say that The Night Charter (link) and Walk Away (link) are still out there, and waiting for your enjoyment.  Maybe you haven’t gotten through the series yet, or maybe you haven’t even started.  Whatever the case may be, there’s an option for you.

Thank you once again for everyone who’s made Make Them Sorry a success, and Camaro in general.  When I first started writing about her in late 2012, I had no idea where I’d end up six years later.  The journey has been fun.

Camaro

Make Them Sorry (UK)Over the years, The Sunday Times has been good to my books, and while some other papers don’t find Camaro Espinoza (link) highbrow enough to earn their praise, I’m glad to say over at the Times, they get it.  Sometimes books are good when they’re grim and unrelenting.  Sometimes books are good when they’re action-packed and full of twists.  Books don’t have to be one or the other.

With that in mind, it was nice to see Crime Club at the Sunday Times say complimentary things about Make Them Sorry (link):

She can take anyone on for a shots-drinking contest, a bout of cage-fighting or anything else that demands strength, courage and a touch of crazy. Camaro is the kind of gal that trouble seems to find, but she’ll hang on and not let go if it looks like the bad guys are going to get away with it. Fast, furious, funny.

Readers in the UK were the first to warm to my writing, and I will forever be grateful to them for making me so much one of their own that I was repeatedly nominated for the Crime Writers’ Association Daggers.  While the nominations are international, membership in the CWA is for the UK only.  I’m thankful for the recognition, even if I am a filthy Yank.

If you’re still on the fence about Make Them Sorry, maybe the Crime Club has given you the nudge you need?

Camaro

Make Them Sorry, by Sam HawkenAnd so August comes to a close.  This was the release month for Make Them Sorry (link), as you may recall.  The latest and best Camaro Espinoza adventure.  If you don’t believe me about the “best” part, be sure to check out pretty much every review that’s come down the pike.  My publisher makes a point of passing these things on to me, because they know I dont read reviews as a general rule (link), and I’m happy to say they’ve all been top-notch.

I’ve also heard from more readers than ever about how much they love Camaro as a character, which is something I find gratifying in a real way.  Critics are nice to hear from, at least sometimes, but it’s when I hear from readers about how they connected with Camaro that I feel like I’ve genuinely succeeded.  I’ve been writing about Camaro for six years at this point, and I have yet to grow tired of her.  She has a few more stories left to tell — the next book is of critical importance, he said teasingly — and isn’t going anywhere just yet.  If you’re one of those folks out there who really likes what you’ve read, keep watching this space.

My thanks go out to everyone who bought a copy of the book, who told other people they should read it, and for all your support over the years I’ve been on this journey with Camaro.  It truly does mean the world to me.  Without you, I could not spend so much time with such a cool woman, though occasionally I think my wife gets jealous.
