Missing Scientists & Heroic Hippies ~ Red Tide by EC Ayres Book Tour!


An abandoned research vessel in the Gulf of Mexico. Five dead marine scientists who were tracking a furtive tanker for offshore dumping.

While Government agencies squabble over jurisdiction for the killings no one is taking responsibility for the tanker. That unwanted task falls at last to Tony Lowell: a pot-smoking environmentalist and private investigator who knows the Gulf and knows how to sail. Lowell is laid back as only a former Navy SEAL-turned hippy can be: a nonconformist who refuses to carry a gun. But he is now the last man left with skills and knowledge of the Gulf who is willing to face an unknown terror at sea and prevent a global environmental catastrophe.



Hi guys! Today I’m here with my first ever book tour, and I’m really excited. If you’re not sure exactly what a book tour is, here’s the basic gist:

A book blog tour is a virtual tour to help an author promote their book without traveling. It’s the same concept as going to a store or event signings but instead of physical places, the author is going from blog to blog during the time frame of the tour. It’s just one form of PR that reaches all the readers/followers of the blogs who participate in the tour. Tour “stops” will be a combination of reviews and guest/promotional posts that make the tour interesting and hopefully encourage readers to buy/read the book. Read more at this site.

I was contacted by the lovely Sophia V (she had a signup going on at her Twitter account) about EC Ayres’ new book, and of course I agreed! A mystery/thriller-esque novel from an award-winning environmentalist? Hell yeah.

I personally have not actually read the novel yet (scandalous, I know!), but since I was only given the info for the tour eight days ago, I’m going to let that slide. The premise truly sounds amazing, and I’m interested in reading it. If you would like to, he’s got it on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

(P.S. I promise I’m not getting paid for this, it’s a free and honest tour of his book. 🙂)
