  • Hello France:

    I have recently e-published a thriller, “Arctic Meltdown”, that is available on Amazon (for Kindles) and / or Smashwords (see above web site or below – for iPads, iPhones, Nooks, other e-readers, laptops and computers). It is set against the backdrop of the melting polar ice cap and the ensuing international jostling for jurisdiction over seabed resources. It shows how, if our politicians are not attentive, this whole process could get derailed, and at the same time charts a possible peaceful solution to save the Arctic.

    I am wondering if you would help publicize the novel to your readership — perhaps by writing a short review and adding the link. If you do so, I would be happy to extend a coupon for you to download it free from Smashwords.

    Happy New Year to you from a fellow Arctic lover,

    Geza Tatrallyay
