Lawrence Short

More than 5,000 copies purchased, downloaded or borrowed on Amazon Kindle!

Cover: Fountains of the Deep

Larry’s first novel was published to the Amazon Kindle Select platform in January 2016. In the first week we sold or gave away nearly 500 copies, and many more have read it since then. A dozen reader reviews are available here, and following are some early reader comments:

"Couldn't put it down until my Kindle died. I should have fully charged it first."

"Larry's brain is full of really interesting things."

"Fountains was hard on the heart. In a good way. I had to stop reading it right before bedtime."

"My boyfriend's reading it on his phone. I couldn't get him to put it down."

When you've finished Fountains, please return to Amazon and give it your honest review. Thank you!
