BestsellerBound, for the Indie book lover

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

If you love to read Indie books—or are a passionate writer— is a great place to hang out. There are many talented and undiscovered writers lurking about at any given time.

For the writer there’s a great wealth of valuable information on the craft of writing, publishing, and otherwise promoting your books. I’ve personally struck up relationships with the great people who founded it, Darcia Helle, Maria Savva, and Stacy Juba and have found them to be extremely generous of their time to their members.

If you’re not a writer, but love a great read, you can easily find something in almost any genre. Authors are always willing to join in on an interesting conversation, so why not start one? There’s also a monthly book club where you can connect with other readers for some lively conversation.

So, come on by and meet the crowd, we’ll be expecting you.

One of my favorite reads of the year

Monday, December 20th, 2010

Digger’s Bones is a thrilling adventure and great read. The book was well researched and almost felt as if it were a true story.

The likeable characters combined with an awesome plot make Digger’s Bones one of my favorite reads of the year. I really loved Angie, she’s trustworthy and dependable. The supporting characters were awesome and complimented the main character.

The ending was not a disappointment and the epilogue added the cherry on top.

Comparing Digger’s Bones to a Dan Brown Novel

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

The lastest reviewer of Digger’s Bones, Rob Steiner, compared my novel to the writings of Dan Brown. Would you agree? Here’s some of what he said about it:

Paul Mansfield Keefe’s Digger’s Bones is professionally written and fast-paced, evoking the thrills and conspiracy theories of Dan Brown.

Keefe does a good job spacing out the clues to the mystery of Digger’s bones, keeping the reader guessing as to where the next clue will lead Angie.

(Keefe) also throws in several plot twists that turn the story in a completely different direction…the stakes exponentially rise with each new revelation.
