    Default Introducing myself and Boomerang

    Hi everyone, and thanks Rachel!

    My name is Alan Hutcheson and I have a novel called Boomerang.

    Here is Boomerang's first Smashwords review. Five Stars!:

    Great fun from start to finish. The various antics of the characters had me laughing out loud as I visualized the situations. I loved following the old lady sisters, Amelia and Doreen (they were so real that I could almost hear their conversations) and Ted and Jerry (that guy had more stuff he was into than poor Ted could keep up with). If that wasn't enough, add in the alphabet soup of government agencies and “the clothing optional former onion festival queen". I had no idea how it was going to end and couldn't wait to find out. This will definitely be on my to-be-read-again list.

    Boomerang is a comic novel that brings a wide range of characters together as they all try to retrieve a hollowed out boomerang containing a secret that should have died with J. Edgar Hoover in the early 1970's. The eventual and inadvertent heroes are a couple of constantly down their luck jazz musicians who are involved only because they desperately need money to get their instruments back. This isn't a Good Guys vs. Bad Guys sort of story, because nobody is without a blemish or three to their character, but I can promise that all of the characters are memorable, and you never know who you might find yourself cheering for before the whole thing ends.

    Boomerang is available as an ebook from Smashwords, Barnes and Noble or Amazon. I offer autographed paperbacks through http://boomerangthenovel.blogspot.com/ and unsullied copies can be had from any online bookseller.

    Half of all royalties earned (and may I mention that the $1.99 ebook on Smashwords generates better royalties than the ten dollar paperback) are going to the Mountain View High School Toro Band.

    Hi everyone.

    I wanted to let you know that the coupon for a free ebook download of Boomerang at Smashwords just has three days left. The response to the ebook version has been tremendous these past several weeks, but I will be shifting gears and doing a promotion relating to the paperback version (heresy!) after the ebook coupon expires.

    Of course, if you have already gotten your free ebook and think maybe a friend who hasn't made it fully into the electronic age would like an autographed copy of Boomerang (I'm telling you, it's going to be valuable one of these days, probably put somebody's kid through college) I will post info on the paperback promotion here. And when that's done, we'll see about another ebook special!

    Wow, I'm sorry about the problem the first time. And I'm so glad you gave it another try!
