Introducing a Kindle Scout Candidate – Blood Match – By Don Massenzio

Dear Followers:  If you are willing, I could use a little help you could provide with the touch of a finger. A friend and fellow blogger, Don Messenzio, had written a new thriller Blood Match. This novel  is currently a candidate in the Kindle Scout Program. I’m hoping you will give it your vote.

First, a little about the book to tempt you!

     Intelligence analyst Jake Balrich boards his Monday morning flight, as he has so many times, for routine field work. When the plan lands, a passenger fails to wake up. Jake soon realizes that the death was not accidental and that the murderous plot was meant for him.

      The situation soon spins out of control with Balrich running for his life trying to prove his own innocence as he struggles with an unknown enemy that seems to guess his every move.

Blood Match is a terrorism thriller examines how far someone will go to reach the height of power and ambition with little regard for human life.

    Follow Balrich as he enlists the help of Commander Brad Rafferty, to take down an enemy more powerful and dangerous than the United States has ever faced.

Some of you may recognize this story. It originally appeared as a weekly serial on Don’s blog under the name Road Kill. The story has been reworked and many extras have been added to turn it into this novel.

About the Author

Don was born in Syracuse, New York to first generation Italian American parents. He’s an avid reader, with Harlan Coben, David Morrell, Stephen King, Jonathan Kellerman, John Grisham, and Hugh Howey among his favorite authors. He started writing as a way to combat the long hours of travel and numerous hotel stays that are part of the ‘glamorous’ world of corporate life and as a therapeutic outlet to combat his homesickness.

His first published book, Frankly Speaking, rose to the top of the Amazon charts. It was the first in a series of books focused on the character, Frank Rozzani, a Florida private detective. The series is a throwback to the days of pulp detective novels with a tip of the hat to Jim Rockford from the 70’s television show, The Rockford Files. He has also written a non-fiction book, The Ultimate Guide For Independently Published Authors: Tips for Improving Quality and Selling Your Work, now available on as an eBook or in paperback

Don moved to Jacksonville, Florida 22 years ago where he currently lives with his wife, daughter, and three dogs.

What is the Kindle Scout Program?

KSP is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. Selected books will be published by Kindle Press and receive 5-year renewable terms, an advance, royalties and featured Amazon marketing. If Don’s book is selected for publication by Kindle Scout, it can help take his writing to the next level in terms of exposure and recognition.

How can you help?

First and foremost, you can vote to nominate the book. The campaign goes up on September 20th at midnight and will continue through October 20th. You can vote for it and preview the opening of the book by clicking HERE.

How can you help even more?

Spread the word. Don has made it easy for you using something called Thunderclap. Thunderclap is a social media tool that allows you to effortlessly spread the word using your social media accounts with a pre-written message. All of your followers will receive the message. You can help by signing up for the Thunderclap campaign HERE.

And You Get Goodies…

Apart from Don’s eternal gratitude, if his book is selected, you will receive a free pre-launch copy from Amazon and will have the opportunity to officially review it before its launch. That is a free book for you, but it also helps, yet again, by allowing the book to launch with established reviews.

So this is a big win-win for my followers.

Please help Don (and me) out here by voting. And then enjoy his book!
