When I started “Best-Bart” I thought it would be just a quick throwaway piece, maybe short story or novella length. But the characters and their derring-do attitudes quickly grew on me and it ended up at my personal standard length for a novel, just over 200 pages.
The second and latest story sprang from an article on art stolen by the Nazis in World War Two. I combined that with concepts from the “war on drugs” and a possible cause for the disappearance of Malaysia flight 370. These elements, mixed together, resulted in ‘The Ice Cold Art Show.”
Now the free books. There is a painting used as an inset on the cover of “The Ice Cold Art Show.” I will send a copy of each of the “Best-Bart” books to the first two people to correctly identify the artist, first and last names please, responsible for the painting.
There may or may not be a third. That will be dictated by economics. I have invested more than a year getting the first two written and published. Whether a third will be created depends entirely on the sales numbers for the first two.
