Want to discover a great new mystery writer from MN? Then be sure to download Chow For Now by Mike Faricy. Not only is the book an incredibly fun read but it’s free this weekend only.
Mike is a local Minnesota author. Minnesota is home to many varied writers, some of the more notable writers from Minnesota who have had success are F. Scott Fitzgerald, Garrison Keillor and John Sandford (John Camp). While I have met all of these writers, except for F. Scott (though I have met his dead wife Zelda who haunted the house across from mine…go ahead and ask me about that), I actually know Mike and we are planning coffee when he returns from Ireland. TMI? Probably. Mike writes these quirky mysteries set in the neighborhood I grew up in, not unlike John Sandford. Mike’s books are more fun to read because he captures the absurd aspect of Minnesota characters and he doesn’t dress as well as Mr. Sandford’s characters. Mike has probably been served lutefisk at a family gathering, though I doubt he would have actually eaten it. Eww.
Mike is only offering his latest book (and he has many) for free this weekend so be sure to visit Amazon to get your copy. You can also purchase it from the app. If you don’t have a Kindle you can still read the book on your computer or on your mobile device, all you need to do is download the Kindle app.
