So I'm touring author, E.J. Simon, one of the most accommodating and fun authors to work with. He is the kind of author who loves to connect with his readers. You know, the kind book bloggers love. Let me tell you about his books, his giveaway and his offer to book clubs.
E.J.'s first book Death Never Sleeps, published on August 15, 2013, achieved a #2 position on Amazon Kindle and entered numerous bestseller lists in the U.S. and abroad. Initially self-published, Simon/Zef began publishing Death Never Sleeps after it moved over 80,000 copies within the first year. Don't you just love success stories like this?
E.J. Simon's fast-paced, unexpected thriller, Death Never Sleeps, begins at the end of Alex's life, gunned down in his favorite restaurant in Queens, N.Y. It looks like just another Mob hit--or was it? Alex's death forces Michael to return to his borough roots. Colorful characters and frightening business "partners" reach out to him as Alex's questionable past begins to surface.
Trouble is clawing its way toward him when Michael gets a message from someone he never thought would contact him--Alex himself. Convinced it must be a trick of the Internet or some malicious hacker, Michael ignores it. But as the death toll continues to rise and a disembodied voice invades his bedroom, Michael starts to suspect his brother was more than a former athlete who fell in with a bad crowd.
Could Alex's gamble to live forever have forged a link between artificial intelligence and something--more? As Michael races the clock to solve the mystery of his brother's murder and keep himself and his family from being killed he falls deeper down the rabbit hole. Will his virtually resurrected brother be a force for good as Alex's ability to manipulate our technological world grows? And if he grows too big, will there still be time to hit the escape key?
Although the story tackles many serious issues, the scenes take place not only in New York City but in exotic locations such as Paris, Saint-Tropez, Rome - and in some of the world's finest restaurants.
