Book Release: The Found Child

Hey everyone,

I’m delighted to let you know that The Found Child is available for purchase. After many years of hard work, and countless plot lines explored and discarded, Shelby’s story is complete. As I mentioned in a previous post, it’s a bit dark, but it does make for a good read. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Private Investigator Shelby McDougall is out for revenge.

Repeated miscarriages have caused Shelby’s marriage to disintegrate. Financial ruin lies ahead. A cheek swab sent to an online ancestry service turns up a surprise child: Shelby’s genetic offspring — found in the misty ether of the internet.

The only way Shelby can hang on to her shredding sanity is to take things into her own hands and, once and for all, locate and apprehend Helen Brannon — the woman responsible for hijacking her fertility … and her future.

As Shelby closes in on her target, the stakes get higher and higher. But when Shelby finds Helen Brannon … how far will she go?

It’s available from the usual places: Amazon, Lulu, Barnes & Noble, Apple Books, or Smashwords. To see all formats, get a sample, or order a signed copy, go to the Paper Angel Press website.

The book, in paperback, is 359 pages pages. Compare to Due Date, at 424 pages and The Stork at 343 pages. All in all , that’s over 1,000 pages covering fourteen years of Shelby’s life!

If you haven’t read Due Date or The Stork, it’s okay. I’ve written the books to be read stand-alone, as well as in order. I had to pay particular attention to continuity since there was such a gap between Due Date (first published in 2012) and The Stork (first published in 2018). If you want to give Due Date or The Stork a read first, you can pick them up for just 99 cents through mid-October.

Thanks everyone! I’m looking forward to your reaction to the book!

Oh, and before I forget, Paper Angel Press will be hosting a book launch party (on Zoom, of course) on October 17th at 10:00 am PST. Find out more on Facebook: The Found Child – Virtual Book Launch Celebration

Until next time,
