The 2nd in the Thailand’s Sickest series. Read it and let me know what you think…

The second book in the Thailand’s Sickest series has been released and is doing pretty well at Amazon, Apple, and other online marketplaces. There are links to buy it at the bottom of this page.

Hell To Pay came out of nowhere, as a guy emailed me about the first book, and I didn’t know what to make of his email. He seemed a bit too interested in me, and I was wondering whether he might be psychotic. I cranked out the entire book in just a couple of months because the story basically wrote itself. It’s fiction, and yet there are some elements of truth woven within the pages. See if you guess what is fiction and what is true.

If you’re enjoying this series, let me know through email what you liked or didn’t. I’m considering a third book in the series, and I’ve had some great responses from readers of the first two books. I could always use more feedback.

Note – this second book – Hell To Pay – is only available at Amazon for the moment.

Short description
A guy in Thailand, haunted by the ghosts of his past, lives on a diet of booze and prostitutes – and milkshakes. To redeem himself, he needs to help the scarred young woman at Dairy Queen, and maybe the ghosts will leave him in peace. But there’s no peace for a trained killer whose inner beast demands vengeance against those who victimize others. He’s in a death spiral to get it done.

This is Book 1. Read this first.

Jim Boedeker and I were first introduced online through email a few years back. His background was intriguing as hell, and we met in Patong Beach, Phuket, Thailand one weekend. Jim’s life story is flat-out amazing. Though this, his first book, is all fiction, I am hoping to read his biography at some point. He undoubtedly has had the most interesting life of anyone I’ve ever known.

Pick up a couple of these books from JB and keep your eye out for more coming up in the near future. Jim is a writing machine, and is cranking out books a couple times a year.

Thailand’s Sickest – a Mike Fook Thriller

Same great book. Better title.


Here is “Thailand’s Sickest” for purchase. I’ve not changed the book title at all the distribution channels yet, it will be month to get to all of them.

Thailand’s Sickest – is a full-length vigilante fiction novel, set in Patong Beach, Thailand.

Here are some reviews:

“What a fantastically action packed, scary and realistic story! I really, really enjoyed it – I read it in one day because I just couldn’t put it down! My only criticism would be that it needed a touch more editing, to get rid of some repetition of facts and quite a few grammatical and typing errors. Other than that little quibble, which really did not detract from the book at all, it was spot on. I love that the author has left things open for another book with some of the main characters, although it didn’t feel at all unfinished as some books can when they have more possibilities in the storyline. I will definately be looking for more fiction books from Mike Fook.”

And this review:

“Sir for a first work of fiction wowowowowow. This book isn’t for the feint of heart. If you struggle with the reality of what really bad people do then this book will upset you. If you you want a look at what evils this world really has to offer, if you want to see something that isn’t sanitized, or sugar coated, then read this book……

I have been all over the world and have seen my share of the dark side. This book captures the horror.

I liked that Mr. Fook was able to show the difference and varying degrees of bad guys. He was able to show that even the good guys are flawed and that too is a reality.

Readers this book will shock you like a dip into an ice filled pool of water. It will make your blood boil and you will want to rage. The sad part is that it is all too real. Just like in reality sometimes not all the bad guys are caught and sometimes even those we save are never saved.”

This vigilante fiction novel is not likely to appeal to people with a weak stomach. Anyone with a soul might not enjoy this book. If you enjoy payback stories – this is one of the most hard-hitting you’ll find.

This book is sold exclusively at Amazon.com for the time being.

Why Thailand Authors Should Embrace Ebooks…

I started out with the goal of getting published – a paperback book, I thought, would be the ultimate ego boost. At least until the movie was made… After looking into it more and asking myself what was more important, money or fame? I came to the conclusion – money is more important. Money is far more important.

The publishing contracts authors sign with traditional paperback book publishers are quite restrictive on present and future acts. For instance, most paperback publishers will insist they own the digital rights to your book content as well – for distribution! Meaning, if you write a book, sign a contract with Bangkok Books, or Asia Books, Lotus Books, whichever company – you are probably signing away your digital rights to market your OWN book on the internet on your site, eBay, Amazon, anywhere.

In order to sell your book online your publisher must sell it for you… which results in a pittance of an income for you – regardless how many ebooks they sell. Not only that, many publishers don’t have agreements with Amazon or other major distribution channels – so, your digital ebooks go nowhere. This very important channel goes unused because traditional book publishing companies are not excited about ebooks – nor are they set up to sell ebooks.

Wouldn’t you rather retain all the rights to your written works?

I decided a year ago that I wanted all the rights. Similar to music industry performers that are tired of selling an entire music CD and making a dollar… I want to retain as much money and rights to distribution of my own material as possible.

Not only this – but, I want to help other authors retain their rights by giving them an outlet for their digital ebooks here at ThailandeBooks.com.

Sign on here and you’ll give up nothing of your rights – we’re just another outlet that you allow to market and sell your ebooks for a commission. You might sell your ebook 50 other places online as well. You might self-publish your book in paperback form on your own as you make enough money from ebook sales to do so. Or, you might give up caring about selling a paperback book.

Ebooks are more than just another way to get your book out there – ebooks are here now – and give authors the chance to retain all rights to their content in the present and the future.

Do you have books already written about Thailand or Asia topics that you couldn’t find a publisher to publish? If you’re a writer based in Thailand – of course you have. It’s very difficult to match up a story with a publisher and actually go through and get published. It’s an exercise in futility often times.

Now you have an outlet for these books – assuming they are decent books and will have an audience – sell them here and everywhere else you possibly can sell them online.
