“Man in the Middle” now available

Man in the Middle, by Jim Nelson

A quick note to announce that my latest novel, Man in the Middle, is now available!

This novel of suspense follows a security guard who, during the first week of the pandemic lock-down, begins to see things he suspect he’s not meant to see: Men working underground on Internet data lines in the dead of night. Neighborhood patrols enforcing the shelter-in-place order. And a conspiracy to steal millions of dollars in BitCoin.

Meanwhile, he is left to wonder if he’s contracted COVID-19, and whether he will have to submit himself to hospital quarantine.

Man in the Middle is now available in Kindle and paperback editions. Kindle Unlimited subscribers can read it free. The Kindle edition is still on sale for 99¢, but not for long, so get it now.

Interview with Sarah Meckler at GSMC Book Review

Recently I spoke again with Sarah Meckler of the GSMC Book Review podcast. It has been a couple of years since we last spoke, which was shortly after the release of Hagar’s Mother.

It was a pleasure to catch up with Sarah. Since then, I’ve published In My Memory Locked, which we discussed at some length, and Stranger Son, which we also touched on.

If you’d like to hear the full interview, you can download the episode at Apple Podcasts or listen to it on YouTube. I heartily recommend subscribing to Sarah’s ongoing podcast series, where she interviews a wide variety of writers and genres.

“Man in the Middle” now available for pre-order

Man in the Middle, by Jim Nelson

I’m pleased to announce the upcoming release of my next novel, Man in the Middle.

The story takes place during the first week of the pandemic lockdown. Suffering from insomnia, a furloughed security guard starts seeing things he’s not supposed to see.

Men working underground on Internet data lines in the dead of night—neighborhood patrols enforcing the shelter-in-place order—the upcoming Presidential election looking bought and paid for—and a conspiracy to steal millions of dollars in BitCoin.

All the while, he shows worrying symptoms he’s infected with COVID-19. It’s only a matter of days—even hours—before he’s taken into emergency care and quarantined in an isolation unit.

All signs point to something amiss in his affluent suburban town, and the further he digs into it, the more he discovers nothing is as it seems.

Man in the Middle will be released November 16, 2020 on Amazon. You can pre-order a Kindle edition today for only 99¢. A paperback edition will be available on or shortly after the release date.

And, as always, thanks for your time and support.

“Always Be Publishing” at Substack

I recently started a new site at Substack, a blog platform with email subscription service. I call it Always Be Publishing.

What’s it about? Why did I start another blog? Some answers are in my introductory post:

Always Be Publishing is about the business and practical side of being a self-publishing writer.

Six years ago, I wouldn’t have dreamed about offering advice to anyone about self-publishing, other than “You might look into it.” Today, I feel more confident about what I know and what I don’t know. I’ve also learned from the various mistakes I’ve made.

That’s why I started Always Be Publishing. It’s for people interested in the independent publishing revolution, but don’t know where to start, writers already self-publishing and seeking perspectives on how to grow their readership, and people who are looking for encouragement to keep writing and not give up…

You can find a list of the posts I’ve made so far at the archive. If you’re interested in subscribing, here’s where you can start.

Seeking advanced reviewers for MAN IN THE MIDDLE

Man in the Middle, by Jim Nelson

I’m seeking ARC (Advanced Review Copy) readers for my next novel.

Man in the Middle is a suspense thriller set in the first week of the COVID-19 lockdown. While sheltering-in-place, a security guard sees people working at a manhole in the dead of night. He goes to investigate, and uncovers…

Well, that’s what you’ll learn by reading the book.

If you’re interested in reviewing a FREE advanced copy, the next steps are:

  • Send me an email at jimbonator@gmail.com with the Subject: line ARC for Man in the Middle
  • I send you an advanced copy (in EPUB or .mobi)

    (Reviews on Goodreads, social media, etc. are also appreciated!)

And that’s all there is to it!

I ask that you not share this ARC with anyone without my express permission.
