Finding new authors

I don't know about you but I object to paying more than $10 for a kindle ebook.  I think that charging more than that is being just plain greedy and I don't want to feed and encourage that greed.  Feeling in the mood for a good gripping suspense thriller after trying to plough my way through a top-selling badly-written erotic romance and giving up, I looked to see what I could find on Amazon.  Forget Sandra Brown, Kathy Reichs, Faye Kellerman, Patricia Cornwell or anybody of that ilk.  All way too overpriced.  This of course is good for indie authors like Nancy Thompson.  Mostly indie authors set their prices realistically making their books affordable.
The Mistaken by Nancy Thompson was gripping, fast-paced, emotional, full of unexpected twists and turns.  What more could you possibly want from a suspense thriller?

BLURB: Tyler Karras is an honest man, a transplanted Brit living the American dream, but his charmed life takes an unexpected turn when his brother, Nick, is coerced into joining ranks with San Francisco’s Russian mafia. Ty intervenes to secure Nick’s freedom, yet only succeeds in incurring their wrath. With no choice but to accept Nick’s new life, Ty returns to his own, but his dreams are dashed when his wife—pregnant with their first child—is killed, the victim of a reckless crime. Despondent and bitter, Ty macerates his grief in alcohol. From the depths of the bottle screams a voice, howling for vengeance. His target is a stranger, the woman who drew his wife toward her death. He doesn’t know her, but he’ll find her, and when he does, he will make her pay, for a deal has been struck with Nick’s Russian associates, enslaving her into a life of bondage. But as Ty moves forward in a cloud of alcohol, he mistakes the wrong woman for his intended victim and now all his plans have gone straight to hell. With his eyes made clear by the stark reality of his mistake, Ty is driven, compelled by remorse and a relentless sense of guilt to make amends and protect Hannah Maguire, the innocent woman whose life he has derailed. He vows to keep her safe and out of the Russians’ hands, but they’re holding Nick as leverage to force Ty to complete their deal and turn over the girl. Once again, he must fight to free his brother, miring all three lives in further jeopardy. But Ty can’t do it all: Save the girl, his brother and his own soul. One of them must make the ultimate sacrifice.
 BIO: Nancy Thompson makes her fiction debut with The Mistaken. She is an interior designer and California transplant, currently living with her husband near Seattle, WA.

Wow! This is an unexpected surprise. Thank you so very much! I'd love to see this on my Amazon & Goodreads book pages. Debut authors like me need all the help we can get. And I agree, book prices, especially for ebooks, need to remain accessible. Thank you for your time! Happy New Year, Cindy!
