Re-Pricing Books

I am working on my fourth book, and I should have it published for consumption July 24, 2017. Here is a synopsis of that book:

Who killed Mickey Phillips?
Jonas Watcher went to the docks for some clam chowder and sourdough bread. He became aware of two men who showed an unusual interest in him. He played cat and mouse with them and finally led them back to his office.
The confrontation wasn't what Jonas expected. After a discussion with the two men over some coffee laced with
Irish Whiskey, Jonas learned a shocking truth. A truth that sent him on a journey to Sacramento with his newly acquired girlfriend Mei Lin Fong and her family butler Charles,
In Sacramento, Jonas made a phone call that resulted in them being put under surveillance that took an ominous turn.

In the 1930s, political isolationists had an agenda focused on keeping the United States out of the current conflicts in Europe. And, they added one item to the top of their list: killing Jonas Watcher.
Jonas needs the wisdom of Solomon to get out of this alive, and he finds it wearing a rumpled fedora and coat.


The eBook is being offered at a  sale price of $0.99. On July 25, the price will be $1.99. Until I have a working copy, pricing is not available until the number of pages is known. Shortly after the eBook and the paperback are available an audio edition will also be made available.


My other books are being re-priced to reflect my analysis on pricing for both eBooks and paperbacks. Additionally, I will be looking into providing a hard bound edition. 



It Began with a Simple Accident, or was it an Attempted Murder?



A femme fatale. Her missing husband. A dead private detective. And a dangerous game of mistaken identity...
It all started when Jonas Watcher found a business card along with some keys – curious... some money – a really good thing... and a gun...

It's the nineteen thirties and Jonas Watcher must solve the mystery of the dead PI if he wants to stay alive.

“The Case of the Running Bag” is the first novel of the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. It features a traditional P.I. dealing with extortion, kidnapping, and murder. Author Gene Poschman brings back the hard-boiled detective novel, featuring the romance and humor reminiscent of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.

Pick up a free copy of the first book in the Jonas Watcher series and step into the exciting age of the 1930s gumshoe.


The Paper has been reduced to $6.99, the price provides me with a modest royalty, and gives readers who like holding a book in the hand a 22% discount. A win-win. The eBook won't be reduced, free is tough to beat. I will continue to keep the first eBook in the series free.


Murder in the Bayou!

New Orleans, the Crescent City... An armed standoff between Louisiana State Troopers and New Orleans Police... An art swindle that will end in murder... Smugglers working the Bayou...


Jonas Watcher arrives to determine if a dead man is really dead. Someone is dogging him to make sure he doesn't find out. The investigation takes him from the French Quarter to its surrounding Bayou where Jonas discovers that all the criminals aren’t in the city. 
If he's going to stay alive, Jason will have to rely on “Invisibles” that aren't his own and a Colt 44 that is.

“The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler” is the second novel in the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. The story is picked up from the first novel, though it stands on its own. Author, Gene Poschman, takes Jonas out of his element and drops him into the Crescent City during political turmoil between New Orleans police and Baton Rouge troopers. He mixes in an old love interest, the New Orleans underworld, and friends from San Francisco for a heady brew of murder, mystery, and mayhem.

Purchase “The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler” and take a journey back to the 1930s New Orleans and the Bayou, where the most dangerous reptiles walk on two legs. 


The price of the eBook is on sale at $0.99 for about two months. At the end of July, the eBook price will revert to $1.99. The paperback is being set to $6.99 which is $2.00 off, $6.99 is the new permanent price.


Who said Weddings Couldn't be Dangerous?



When PI Jonas Watcher sees a Chinese couple being kidnapped; he sighs, grabs his gun, and goes to help them. This selfless act involves Jonas with the Chinese underworld. He is hired to unite two families by bringing a prospective bride from St. Louis to San Francisco for an arranged marriage. There are several factions who will kill to keep him from succeeding. His mission is complicated even more by his employer's beautiful granddaughter. She's the only one who knows where the bride is and she insists on going with him. A girl, his Colt 44, and diplomacy; Jonas will have to use all three if he wishes to complete the mission, end the feud, and live to tell the tale.

“The Case of the Jade Dragon” is the third novel of the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. It's the 1930s in San Francisco’s Chinatown, where old traditions conflict with the new, and Jonas gets caught up in a world of mysticism, a deadly family feud, and a potential underworld war. Author Gene Poschman brings a new slant to the noir hard-boiled detective by introducing him to a world out of his comfort zone and adding an exotic love interest.

Purchase “The Case of the Jade Dragon” and travel by train, plane, and automobile to learn the fate of the Azure Dragon.


The paperback price has been reduced to $6.99 and look for more changes as time goes by.
