I received two additional blurbs for the cover of my upcoming scientific mystery-thriller “The Allston Variant.” Many thanks to Greg and Luke for their kind words:
“The Allston Variant, Phil Temples’ frighteningly plausible new novel, enthralls with its breathtaking pace and complex heroine, scientist/undercover agent Carrie Bloomfield, while elucidating the latest advances in biotechnology. A smart, steamy thriller! —Gregory Wolos, author of Women of Consequence and Turnpike
“Thrillers are my guilty pleasure, and The Allston Variant is the guiltiest of guilty pleasures. Temples not only spins an excellent yarn, he can write!” —Luke Salisbury, author of The Answer Is Baseball and No Common War
Robin Stratton at Big Table Publishing Company produced this catchy little video for Helltown:
I couldn’t resist reposting this. There’s a scene in The Allston Variant where the two main protagonists visit Sullivan’s on Castle Island. http://bit.ly/2Vi50AY
I’m excited to announce the official book launch for “The Allston Variant”, the second in the Carrie Bloomfield Novel series, will happen on Saturday, May 11, 2019 from 2-4 PM at New England Mobile Book Fair, 241 Needham St, Newton Upper Falls, MA. Light refreshments will be served.
I’ve begun writing the third book in the Carrie Bloomfield series of scientific murder-mystery novels, with the working title Uncontacted Frontier:
Scientist-turned-entrepreneur Carrie Bloomfield is caught up in adventure and intrigue when she goes on an expedition to the Amazon in Brazil to collect fauna and flora for potentially promising pharmaceuticals.
I’ll sit down face-to-face with a literary agent, pitch my manuscript and obtain feedback at the upcoming Muse & the Marketplace Writers Conference.
I’m attending the Muse and the Marketplace writing conference at the Park Plaza in Boston at the beginning of April. The Muse is billed as “the number one writing conference in North America” with over 140 well-known authors and “more than 800 people on some 100 panels.”
