If you wrote a letter to your MC, what would you say? #Giveaway

I'm a day late getting to this...major apologies to Mr. Nader!!

Better late than never, says I. 

What is it? Burdin of Choice, the 2nd installment in the Beasts of Burdin series. I asked Mr. Nader for a personal letter to his MC, Ty Burdin. hehehehe



He-hey Ty, my man, how’s life? Everything is pretty good with me, just chilling out with the family and scratching away at these novels, but enough about me, I’m writing this letter because I want to talk to you, Ty. You’re a good dude, I know you are. Yeah, I’ve seen your BS tough guy act, but I know you’ve got a gooey core at the middle. It’s just buried under layers of cigarette smoke, scotch, and snark.

I’m writing this letter to give you a little advice. I know I’m not some hard ass demon hunter working my way through past tragedies; my life isn’t some episode of Grimm or Supernatural. I don’t know what it’s like to have killed or gotten people killed. I’m also not drinking myself into an early grave, well, not too early of a grave anyway. So, if you’ll stop with the babble and rhetoric I’d like to tell you something.

You need to calm down. Seriously, man. Take it freaking easy. I know you’ve got a lot on your plate and the Agency gave you the raw end of the deal a while back—I was there, I remember. You’ve put the world on your shoulders and you don’t have to. Take a day off. Take a week off. Kick your shoes under the desk, lay back, and watch some Netflix or something.

You need to get your rest. It’s good for your health and on top of that, I’ve gotten a glimpse into your future. That saying, it’s always darkest just before the dawn? Well, hunker down because it’s barely even midnight and you’re going to have to keep the wolves at bay a bit longer.

That’s all I’ve got for you. I decided to write it out and send it to you. What says care more than a hand-written letter coming from the mailbox? Besides, this way you’re too far away to kick my ass when you don’t like what you read in here.

Have a good day, Ty. Take care of you and your family. This goes without saying, but I imagine they’re all in danger.

Burdin of Choice (Beasts of Burdin #2)
Author:  Alexander Nader
Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing
Release Date:  November 10, 2014
Keywords:  Urban Fantasy

Ty Burdin is back. Back to drinking and back to avoiding demons. He is, of course, the leading expert in his field. In both subjects. 

That’s probably why, when a customer offers him way too much money just to locate a missing car and some mysterious cargo, he readily agrees. The dude is human after all—Ty’s prime target client base. 

Along with the money comes a slew of disappearances which Ty tries to ignore while tracking down that car, because, of course, those missing people might be demon related, and as he’s said before, that’s agency business. Not his. Period. 

Until today. 

Ty Burdin is to back drinking as well as everything he vowed never to get involved with again. 

Question is, which one will kill him first? The booze, the demons, or the Agency?

Alex lives in the tourist infested hills of east Tennessee with his amazing wife/muse and three superb children. He would tell you more about how awesome they are, but you probably wouldn’t believe him. When he’s not hanging out with them he’s making pizzas and occasionally he jots a few words down. He’s a big fan of good music, good storytelling, and fun, lots of fun. 

He once wrote a short story about pirates to his wife via text message that blossomed into a full length novel and never stopped after that.

  1. That was entertaining! You sure gave him a scolding/pep talk. I'm intrigued now about Ty. ;)

    1. Ty is a great character, Chrys. I loved the 1st installment. Still trying to find time for #2. Soon!!!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I'm sure Ty will find great solace in this letter.
    Or ungratefully burn it with the end of his cigarette.
    One of those.
