Join the Derek Ciccone email list

I send out emails only when there is a good reason to - such as new books coming out. I won't bombard you every week asking you to buy my book or that I'm doing a signing somewhere you don't live near (and, of course, I don't sell or provide them to any company, person, or organization). But for many, email is still the preferred and direct way to get information. So all you need to do to get on my email list is send me an email at and I will make sure you are on the next mailing.

For updates on other events, and other doings with the books, is to follow me at Twitter (@DCicconeBooks) or Facebook (Derek Ciccone Book Club)  

Below is the email sent out to announce the new books

Subject: New Books by Derek available as ebooks!

The Truant Officer & The Trials of Max Q

Can be found at Amazon, Apple, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, and most places where ebooks are sold

If the images don't work in this email or you're looking for more detailed information on the books, please click to my blog Derek's Novel Ideas
For the "old school" readers like myself, the paperback and hardcover versions will be available soon. I will send an update at that time. I'll also be providing updates on all things Truant Officer and Max Q on Twitter (@DCicconeBooks) and Facebook (Derek Ciccone Book Club), so I hope you'll follow me there.
One final thought:
The reason there is a second (and third) book is the great word of mouth support provided to Painless. Whether it was a review or rating at Amazon, Goodreads, or Apple (At last check, Painless had over 2,700 ratings at Apple!) a post on Facebook or Twitter, telling a friend, getting your bookclub to read it, or forwarding along an email like this. Can't begin to tell you how much that helped, and how much I appreciate the support. Thanks so much!!

And because of that great support, Painless got to go on a great journey that took it everywhere from being the most downloaded Kindle book at AmazonUK for both the "Medical Thriller" and "Political Thriller" categories at the same time (and is still holding its own) to being the "book of the month" at Elliott Books in Austin, Texas. The moral of the story is that you will live a much more interesting and well-traveled life as a book than as an author (-:

Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments

And if you no longer want to receive my book-related updates, just reply to this email and I'll take you off the list

Hope you enjoy the books,
