Is it going to be on audible? Probably a great book for the long road we travel

Amazon link goes to Amazon's Canadian website where Graceless costs CND$1.99. For $.99 preorder price you must go to the Amazon American website.

Just a reminder…I have a surprise for y'all. Back in the spring, me and a few friends came up with an idea to showcase our characters in a different way. We decided to write a short novel together. But totally separate, with each of us writing one section in which our characters appear. It's been hard for us to keep this under our hats. But now we don't have to.
The story starts in Key Largo, but quickly moves to the Cayman Islands, where the main character, Nathan Fitzgerald meets Nicholas Harvey's characters, AJ Baily and her friends, as Nathan searches for his missing wife, Grace.
Then Nathan moves on the Cozumel, where he gets help from Nick Sullivan's characters, Boone and Emily.
After that, Nathan is off to Key West, where he meets John Cunningham's characters, Buck Reilly and Ray Floyd.
Finally, after Buck crash lands in Marathon, Nathan gets help from Jesse, Rusty, and the gang.
This is the first of hopefully many of this kind of book that will be coming from the creative minds at TropicalAuthors.com. We're hoping to match up four more storytellers for more great sea adventures.
As it happens, Hurricane Grace recently passed through the Cayman Islands on her way to Cozumel. This was purely coincidental, since the book's been finished for over a month now.
Anyway, Graceless is now, or very soon will be, available for preorder anywhere eBooks are sold. The price will be permanently priced at $.99 with all the proceeds going to Tropical Authors to help offset website and advertising costs. Click on the cover for the links in the image comments. I'll add them as they go live in all the different stores.

Preordered on Amazon for January 31 delivery. Going to be interesting because I read all of you, so I'm looking forward to this being a successful, and ongoing endeavor (after all this does say "prequel novella".

Just ordered it, too.

Haven’t read all the authors but will get it to maybe open me up to some new and I’m sure interesting characters
