Newest Novel: A Very Fine Line

Announcing the newest Novel from Timothy Freriks

A Very Fine Line

Data is the world’s fuel, and data runs through a spaghetti plate of fiber optic cables that span the globe on the bottom of every ocean. It’s a simple concept: Control the cables and you control the world’s political and economic systems.

Five unlikely and powerful men become partners in a ruthless plot to do just that, to force their view of the future on the nations of the world. But not all the partners are on the same page.

A brilliant programmer/hacker accidentally discovers the sinister scheme and risks his life and freedom to expose the perpetrators.

He may be the world’s last hope.

Available in eBook and print at Amazon

People on a Plane

I wrote something new—a stage play!

An endangered Indian Reservation. A corrupt U.S. Senator and his indentured assistant. An Activist who is pledged to stop a deal that would crush his tribe. A crusty old couple. A heroic pilot and the flight attendant who loves him.

This fast-paced stage play threads its way through emotions and challenges on a hilarious flight plan.

Email me if you’re interested the play.

Mithra Conspiracy

The Mithra Conspiracy

The most action-packed and high-stakes thriller yet from Timothy Freriks

Could a venture capitalist buy a country? A country where it makes the laws and nothing its clients can do is illegal?

When an American private equity firm orchestrates a devastating war between two powerful drug cartels and forms a partnership with two others, a new nation is born.

But when the sinister purpose behind the primary investor is revealed, grave mistakes may destroy America.

Only two young FBI agents can stop it in time.

Book Signing Tour

HeadingOut

HEADING OUT

Kathy and I are heading out for a three-week BOOK SIGNING tour of RV parks in SEVEN states.

Now, for those of you who have read The Robbins: old farts gone bad, I want to assure you that Kathy and I are NOT crooks. We are not using the RV to cover perfect heists. We just want to meet fans and sign a few books.

Honest… we are not thieves. We’re just trying to promote The Robbins.

I’ll be sending pictures from the road of some of the great people we meet.

My laptop will not be idle. Julia—now that it is a murder/crime mystery—awaits my renewed attention. For those fans who have been asking, I’m working on it. Just chill! I have to launch the next novel in the Robert Curry series, Three Legs of the Caliphate first. That’s one scary book.

I’ll also be making a few of my books free downloads over the next few weeks, so keep an eye out.

IslamicMan_Triangle_WebSiteANNOUNCING MY FAN PAGE

As I grow and gather a fan base, I have been told I needed to set up a Facebook Fan Page, @authortimfreriks. So I did.  This is the new link. Definitely, follow me.

Three Legs is my latest novel, and it is the most frightening. Why? Because this story is happening. If anybody is interested in reading an ARC, please email me at tfreriks@timothyfreriks.com .

The proposed release date is August 15th. Let me know what format (ePub, MOBI, or PDF) you want. I also have a few hard copies if that’s the only way you can read it.

When you email me, I’d love permission to put you on my mailing list, too. Every once in a while, I’ll send news and notices about free copies of new stuff I do. In fact, if you haven’t read the rather intense short stories in my Collection 1, here’s the link for that. Enjoy! Sorry, but they might be a little disturbing.

Banana – a short story

BANANA

A short story by Timothy Freriks © 2016

 

After all of this time, now I’m trash. No, sorry… I’m garbage. The newspaper I find myself uncomfortably snuggled up to—almost wrapped up in—is trash. He seems proud of that like it’s an important distinction and somehow better than being garbage.  I honestly don’t know the difference, but I respect his right to think that as I try to be proud of being garbage.

The cherry tomato with whom I share this tight, dark space, seemed to agree with me, but of course, he had to identify with garbage. Inanimate objects are trash, he had said. I’m not. He was awfully wrinkled and squishy at the time—old and maybe senile—so I don’t know if I trust his perception. A little later, when I tried to get some clarification, I got no response. I’ll have to assume he has died.

That fate awaits me as well as I feel myself turning darker, inside and out. My meat is soft to the point of being called ‘mushy’, and my once beautiful yellow skin is dark brown and, in spots, black already. I have to accept that final decay is inevitable, but… Continue reading

Startup Assembly Manual Nominated for Small Business Book Awards 2016

From Small Business Trends:

“The focus of “Startup Assembly Manual” is squarely on the product in the “startup” process. Most “startup advice” books focus on the marketing and inspiration needed to launch a product, but only a few focus on the product, which drives the whole thing. Without a good product (or service), your startup will not successfully launch. The book, in particular, embraces its own self-developed methodology, “ACE methodology” (Assess, Confirm, Execute), which focuses on analysis validation, and constant feedback to refine marketing and product design. It features one of the simplest and most straightforward formulas for pricing that a reader will ever see.”

Do you have a brilliant idea for a product or a business and you want to start your own company? SAM is a book for aspiring entrepreneurs who have a great idea and no clue how to go about bringing their dream to reality.

It is focused on the foundation of any successful business: proving you have a saleable product first.

SAM is built from Mr. Freriks’ ACE Methodology, which embodies three basic steps: Assessment, Confirmation and Execution. It is a process of Assessing yourself, your customer, your product… Continue reading
