I am pleased to announce the publication of my first novel, Walkabout.

 

Walkabout is a thriller set in Australia. The main character, Jake, is an American who fled to the Outback in the 1990s and has been living since then as a cattle rancher and part time tour guide.

While out on a job, he discovers that the FBI has finally caught up with him. A manhunt ensues across the wilds of Australia as Jake races to meet up with his Australian wife, who is also being pursued by American agents.

 

It's available from Amazon in both print and paperback formats. There are links to the book on the blog post below, or you can simply search author name "B. Scott Christmas" at Amazon.

Thanks in advance to anyone who buys it!

 Way to go, Mr Schmoo. Can't be easy writing a novel. I remember liking the short story you posted a few years ago.

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.
