Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Kickstarter - Down - A New Reid Hollow Novel

Down - A new Reid Hollow Novel's video poster
The ultra-violent detective Reid Hollow is back in the second novel in his series. Donors will get this Kickstarter only cover edition.
We are trying to raise funds for the newest Reid Hollow novel DOWN, by Matt Madigan. The first installment HER NAME IS VIOLENCE sold very well in book stores, and and gathered a loyal audience.
Much of this is due to our successful Kickstarter initiative. This time we are trying to raise at least $3,000 to cover production, shipping, marketing and art work costs.
The book offered here has an alternate cover which will ONLY be available to those participating in this Kickstarter initiative. We will only print enough to satisfy donors. All other books sold online and in stores will have a completely different cover, painted by artist Robert Jaz, (
Please check out our website at If you have not read the first book in this series HER NAME IS VIOLENCE, you can pick up a copy there or in any of the major booksellers online.
The text of this book is 90% complete and is ready to go into copy editing. This part is expensive, as is having the cover completed. We are quite sure everything will be ready to be sent out to participants in this drive by December, 2014.
If we reach our stretch goal of $3,000, anyone donating $50 or more will receive a free t-shirt with the logo of Reid Hollow’s place of work, the KING ROBINSON DETECTIVE AGENCY.

Risks and challengesLearn about accountability on Kickstarter

As with the last title we funded through Kickstarter, there is almost no risk. The book is very close to going in to copy editing, and the alternative cover is completed. There is no possibility this book will not be released.
