I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted here – but that’s because I’ve been busy writing! The First Draft of the Fourth Book has come forth! Editing will commence immediately. In the meantime, I can use help from loyal fans and disinterested bystanders who like my posts only so I’ll like them back: I would like you to help me choose a title.

Here is my rough draft of the book’s description:

>>>>>It is generally considered bad form to visit a brothel during your honeymoon, and it’s even worse when you’re a pastor. Even so, at the time, it seems to Jonah Borden like the right thing to do. Besides, it only happened twice.

It all starts innocently enough, with a big tip to an undeserving waitress. Her efforts to thank Jonah and his new bride, Leyla, backfire ridiculously, and soon they have lost their passports in a scam, and are stranded in Greece.

As they try to extricate themselves they find they are only in deeper, and soon the newlyweds are battling hardened criminals just to survive. When they find out that they are not the only ones, the stakes get even higher. <<<<<

Here are some thoughts:

Superior Getaway

Superior Honeymoon

Superior Vacation

Superior Absence

Superior Stakes

Superior Scam

Superior Smuggler

Superior Morality

I’d love your comments, votes, or suggestions for something else. Use the comment section below. If that doesn’t work, or if you don’t want to use the comment section, you can email me here: tomATtomhilpertDOTCOM. The reason I spelled it out like that is avoid scammy-robots. Put in the symbols – don’t use the spelling like I did.

Thanks for your help. Hope to give you something in time to occupy your holidays this year!

In case you are new, here’s the skinny:

It’s wintertime on the North Shore and the snow is thick on the ground. Jonah Borden, the coffee-guzzling, wisecracking, mystery-solving man of the cloth, is about to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Leyla Bennett. But just a few weeks before they do, Leyla decides to go undercover in a new cult to get an exclusive exposé which would make her name as a journalist. However, as time goes on, Borden is worried that her commitment to the troubling new religion and her devotion to its evil, charismatic leader are more than just professional.

When Borden confronts the cult leader, he is turned away and threatened. Meanwhile, mysterious hunting accidents begin happening around the town of Grand Lake. Assisted by his friends, Jonah tries to find a way to get Leyla out. What he uncovers is bigger than any of them had guessed. Now, he’s in a race to save his own life, and those of his friends, before a powerful enemy finds them and destroys them.

Superior Secrets is set amidst the wild beauty of Lake Superior. Featuring a cast of unique, memorable characters, this is part of the Lake Superior Mystery series. None of the books have to be read in order.
