    The Mercy of the Tide - Keith Rosson - ARCs available to WF Members

    Hey peeps,

    Meerkat Press is publishing an incredible (IMHO) debut novel by Keith Rosson (a former WF interviewee) on 2/21/17. This book is available for review on NetGalley and has a whopping 65% of reviewers on Goodreads giving it 5 stars!

    For a limited time only, Meerkat Press is offering digital ARCs (.mobi, epub or pdf) to WF members. We would ask that if you read the book, you post an honest review on Goodreads now and Amazon once Amazon opens it for reviews in February. So if you'd like a copy, go here and request a copy and in the notes add that you are a WF member:

    So without further achoo (sorry, allergies are crazy right now, I meant "ado")...

    Description:
    Riptide, Oregon, 1983. A sleepy coastal town, where crime usually consists of underage drinking down at a Wolf Point bonfire. But then strange things start happening—a human skeleton is unearthed in a local park and mutilated animals begin appearing, seemingly sacrificed, on the town’s beaches. The Mercy of the Tide follows four people drawn irrevocably together by a recent tragedy as they do their best to reclaim their lives—leading them all to a discovery that will change them and their town forever.
