Ivan’s Books

Thrillers are my favorite kind of novel, although I read many other genres as well. I thought it would be a good idea to write one or two. After years of researching the writing practice and re-writing the manuscript, I produced Homicidal Tendencies. I followed that with the novella Toe-Cutter which is available at no charge. See the link below.

MOBI and EPUB: The epub and mobi versions are now available for free in my Google Drive Toe-Cutter folder. If you don’t have a google account, send me an email telling me which version you would like. My gmail is my author name with no spaces, 4444, and it’s at gmail.com.

POD: Deferred until I have enough novellas to make their own book.
