The Free Download Promotion of my second novel, “Hog Valley” has ended



The free download promotion of the Kindle version of my second novel, “Hog Valley”, has ended. There were 1257 downloads during that period, from all around the world.

I got a big kick out of watching the numbers jump while folks downloaded the file.

The number of follow-on sales of my two other novels, “The Big Bend” and “Twisted Key”, are very satisfactory, and I expect that number to increase over the next few weeks as people finish reading “Hog Valley”.

Thank you to everyone who downloaded the novel. Please post a review of the novel for me on Amazon when you finish.

And remember, there are two other novels of mine up there, at very reasonable prices. And very soon my fourth novel “Lonesome Cove”, will join them.

Enjoy the story, folks, and thanks again for downloading “Hog Valley”.


About Gary Showalter

Gary Showalter was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He lived in Aruba, Florida and the Panama Canal Zone before joining the U.S. Army during the 1960s. Following his discharge from the Army, Mr. Showalter picked cotton in East Texas, baled hay in Ardmore Oklahoma, sold light bulbs in Los Angeles, California, and built cattle pens in Fallon, Nevada (during a blizzard, of course). After settling in Atlanta, Georgia, Mr. Showalter worked as a professional gardener before turning his hand to furniture making. In 1981, he moved to Israel, married, and raised four children while working as a furniture maker, silversmith, goldsmith, and ornamental wood turner. He served in the Israel Defense Forces Reserves for sixteen years, and when not on active duty he worked in government and private security. He has also served in senior management positions in two software development companies in Israel. During his time in Israel, Mr. Showalter published articles dealing with international terror and the Israel-Arab conflict in the Jerusalem Post, Israel national News and several political science web sites. Mr. Showalter returned to the United States in the fall of 2003, to care for an elderly parent. He published his first novel, “The Big Bend”, in the fall of 2008. His second novel, “Hog Valley”, is now in print. Mr. Showalter's third novel, “Twisted Key”, was published in the fall of 2011, and his fourth novel, "Lonesome Cove" is now available in Kindle format and should be published in paper near the end of 2012. He currently lives in Deland, Fl, where he is co-authoring "A Silent Star" with Tony Attanasio. "A Silent Star" is the true tale (though novelized, with names changed for security reasons) about the 4-person covert action team sent into Yemen to capture Osama Bin laden immediately after the bombing of the USS Cole in the Aden harbor in Yemen in October of 2000.
