If Amazon is your better option, or e-book more your style, grab a copy HERE. The paperback might be listed as out of stock, but that's most likely incorrect and you'll receive the book without delay. BURN CARDS is also listed on Goodreads.

A huge thank you to everyone for their support throughout the publication process. 280 Steps is nothing but superb (thanks, Kjetil!) and I had a fantastic time at my first event at Papercuts J.P., my (new) local bookstore in Jamaica Plain.* Kate, the owner, and Katie, the event coordinator, did a wonderful job setting up the event, and showed how special a local bookstore can be to a community; the support I've witnessed over the past few months demonstrates the hard work has paid off. That's why I list links to IndieBound first in this post. Unlike FEDERALES, whose distribution is fairly limited to Amazon (and me), 280 Steps is distributed through Ingram, so you should be able to find/order BURN CARDS, and any other of their other titles at brick and mortar stores.

*My partner in crime for the event, Zachary Klein, has done a nice write up of the event on his blog.

Reviews are trickling in - here's a favorite from Angel Luis Colón over at My Bookish Ways.

About BURN CARDS:

Mirna Fowler believes she has been cheated in life, growing up in a broken home alone with a drunken and gambling-addicted father. Now she works at a small hair salon in Reno, doing her best to survive while she saves money for school. Hoping to get a degree that will take her places.

But in the wake of her father's death, Mirna inherits his extravagant debt, an amount of money she can never repay. As her fractured world begins to crumble, the search for the truth sets her on a path where life hangs on her every move.

Advance Praise for BURN CARDS:

“With a character you care about and a momentum you can't avoid, BURN CARDS is aces. This fast-moving novella pulses with enough energy to power all the casinos in Nevada.” - Steve Weddle, author of Country Hardball

"the shit-kicking streets of a dead end desert town have never been meaner." — Joe Clifford, author of Lamentation

"This bare-knuckle noir pulses with energy and punches hard." — William Boyle, author of Gravesend

"Irvin illuminates the city of Reno itself, casting the flickering glow of his sharp observations into every dark corner of the city and bringing forth a rogue’s gallery of gamblers, dreamers, and burnouts who are all heading for the same bitter end." — John Mantooth, author of The Year of the Storm
