Advanced Reader Opportunities (1).jpg

We are looking for readers! I have several clients who are looking to launch their new books. One crucial element to help their launch is to have honest reviews in place when the books launch and shortly after. 

Are you interested in getting a free eBook in exchange for being part of their exclusive Advanced Reader or Review Crew Team? You'll be asked to leave a review on Amazon and other sites the week the book launches. We provide direct links to the sites review pages to make it easy. 

Sign up for one or more of these books. When they're ready, you'll received the book in your email ready to read! 


The Russian continues Thomas Nichols’ fact-based novels of the border wars along the southern boundary of the United States. Beginning with Color of the Prism, continuing with We Were Young Once . . ., and concluding with the third of these spellbinding stories, Nichols’ readers experience an insider’s view of the cartel-controlled human and drug trafficking.

In The Russian, New Mexico State Trooper Enrique (Ricky) Basurto joins other local, state, and federal agents in the Multi-Agency Human and Controlled Substance Interdiction Task Force. Focused along the desolate NM Hwy. 9 from Columbus to Animas, Ricky and his colleagues face the dangers of the powerful cartels, their heavily armed militias, the Russian Mafia, and the innocent men, women, and children who are their victims.

The near-ghost town of Hachita, New Mexico, is the bull’s eye in the war. It is here in the remote Chihuahua desert where life and death intersect, bringing about unexpected challenges to Ricky and his colleagues’ professionalism, ethics, and personal goals and fears.

Multiple award-winning author Thomas J. Nichols continues his fact-based accounts of the Border War Series with “We Were Young Once …” Following the success of “Color of the Prism,” this second in the series continues the Castenada/Basurto families’ dedication of stemming the flood of human and drug trafficking.

Centered in the near ghost town of Hachita, New Mexico, “We Were Young Once …,” brings the reader into the Chihuahua desert where the federal/state task force comes face-to-face with the victims and perpetrators of the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels.

A Writers’ Digest review described Nichols’ writing “…what impressed me was the verisimilitude, the sense of being taken into a story by an author who really had been there and done that.”

Patrick Hanford - The Creation of Marla Adams - Front Only - FullRes JPG.jpg

Someone is killing the citizens of Hildebrandt, Texas, and carving perplexing numbers on the bodies. Police Officer Marla Adams has never wanted to be the lead investigator of a major crime, but when her father, the police chief, struggles with mental illness and second in command, her husband Detective Crosby Adams, battles his own demons with drugs and alcohol, she is pressed to take control. Everyone expects her to fail.

Marla charges headlong to save her community from destruction and chases leads near home, across Texas, and halfway around the globe to Montenegro. But Marla is losing the battle and her will. The town is right. They're doomed. She doesn't stand a chance of finding the killer.

Until a secret is revealed. One that might break the case wide open and place her squarely in the sights of the monster taking lives in her backyard.
