The Legend of Shamus McGinty's Gold on Kindle

The first Fergal O’Brien novel The Legend of Shamus McGinty’s Gold is now available on Kindle, meaning the entire six book series has been published in e-book format.


When Amazon bought Thomas Bouregy, the publisher of the Fergal O’Brien series, they acquired the rights to books 2 to 6, but the first book came out before anyone had thought of adding e-books to the contract. So I kept the e-rights to that one with the intention of self-publishing.

It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally published the title. It sure was a fun task typing the entire novel out again using my only remaining copy of the original hardback, while all the time forcing myself to resist the temptation to rewrite the story. Anyhow, the book is now available on amazon at a bargain price of £0.99 or $1.49, and next year I’ll publish the 7th book in the series.

There's enough gold to make you think you can live forever, but Shamus McGinty has hidden it where no one can ever find it. The only way to find the gold is to stop looking, but once you find it, you won't even realize it. So goes the legend of Shamus McGinty's gold.

After forty years, Morgan Armstrong thinks he's close to solving the legend, but he's at death's door. He offers a share of the gold to the ruthless outlaw Quinn Rogers in return for finding a cure to save his life. Quinn looks no farther than Fergal O'Brien, purveyor of a “universal remedy” he claims will cure anything and everything.

Too bad for Morgan that it hasn't cured anyone yet, and too bad for Fergal when Quinn finds that out. His ultimatum to Fergal is simple: cure Morgan or die. To avoid the wrong end of Quinn's gun, Fergal and his trusty bodyguard, Randolph, must find a way to help Morgan. Their treatment just might be the key to solving the legend of Shamus McGinty's gold.

Available from Amazon.
