I'd like to take this opportunity to mention my novel, Living the Dream.

Kurt’s life has been one dead end after another since he was
convicted of attempted rape thirty years ago.

Inspired by a dream, he thinks he’s finally found the way to
Easy St.
and it starts with kidnapping Vicky, the woman who had him arrested all those
years ago.

Surely Vicky’s husband, wealthy investment consultant Jimmy,
would pay handsomely for the safe return of his wife.

But Kurt soon learns that even Easy Street has its share of
pot holes.

After the road trip from Hell, Kurt arrives in Florida to learn that
Jimmy is planning to leave Vicky and may not be interested in saving her. On
top of that Jimmy’s mysterious mistress wants her own piece of the action.

To make matters worse, Kurt gets on the wrong side of a
biker, a bookie and an ex-Navy SEAL who seem determined to make the rest of his
life as painful as possible.

Meanwhile, Danny Putnam is enjoying life in Florida. He owns a
successful dive shop and has a very comfortable lifestyle until he starts
having bizarre dreams about his murdered wife and a beautiful woman he has
never met. Suddenly his comfortable life becomes very complicated.

In the first novel by Tim Baker the lives of four people
will meet at a crossroads where love, hate, betrayal and honesty converge for
some very surprising results.

Here is a recent review from an Amazon reader;

When I first started to read "Living The Dream" by Tim Baker, I wasn't
sure if I was going to like it. Three of the main characters have no
redeeming qualities and it was hard to care about what happened to
them. Then I realized that I didn't have to like them in order to
appreciate the story and the imagination that went into the writing.
The things that kept happening to Kurt were crazy and creative and I
was impressed with how events unfolded in a way that kept me interested
despite my lack of empathy for the characters. I eventually found
myself turning the pages furiously to see what was going to happen next
and, by the end, felt that the book was well written, creative, showed
lots of imagination and I would definitely recommend it.

Living the Dream is available in paperback and ebook versions paperback

amazon kindle

all other ebook formats

Thank you for your time and happy reading
