Counting Down to the Release of ‘The Prince Madoc Secret’

Don’t forget that The Prince Madoc Secret will be released in as few weeks. Check in on our website for information on various book events. If you have a bookstore near you that you think might like to host a book signing, please share this email with them and have them contact me direct. If you set up a confirmed book event, you’ll receive a free copy of the book.

Here’s what one early reviewer said:  I kept reading and telling myself, “okay, just half an hour more and then take a break”.  No breaks.  You’re a very good storyteller.  I really got pulled in.  I have found many authors have one or two good books in them, but they continue to write more. You, however have improved.  While I thoroughly enjoyed the first two, Madoc is clearly the best”.  

If you have the opportunity to visit your local bookstore, here’s what two bookstores think about the books!  Share it with your bookstore owner.

“The Oak Grove Conspiracies series by Barrie Doyle is an excellent foray into adventure and history. Beginning with The Excalibur Parchment the reader follows character Stone Wallace as he tries to save his mentor from Wales. The Lucifer Scroll follows suit with a second gripping adventure that traverses the globe. The release of the third in the series Prince Madoc has been hotly anticipated by fans worldwide.  In the two years that we’ve been running our bookstore, we have recommended Barrie’s novels highly to fans of Dan Brown, Bernard Cornwell and Wilbur Smith. When they return for the second in the series we know we’ve got them hooked!”

And from The Reading Room in Penetanguishine, “At The Reading Room Bookstore in Penetanguishene, we look forward to the arrival of Barrie Doyle’s third book in his Oak Grove Conspiracies. We held events for his first two books in the series, The Excalibur Parchment and The Lucifer Scroll. Both signings were well attended, and sales were terrific.

Barrie, after a long career in journalism, corporate communications, and public relations does a great job of promoting his books and events on social media and through his vast professional networks. He also shows up with props (the Excalibur replica is a huge hit) as well as terrific printed material.

His books deal with the universal themes of good vs. evil, and religious beliefs used for control and power (sound familiar?). They will appeal to readers of historic fiction, fantasy and nail-biting thrillers. One customer compared Barrie’s books to those of Ken Follett. “

Those are just some of the comments we’ve been receiving. We have also found out that Waterstones (a major bookstore in the UK) now carries the books online. If any of you have friends or relatives in Wales or other parts of the UK who’d like to read these nail-biting thrillers, let them know about Waterstone’s. They can order online and pick it up at their closest store.

If, like the early reviewer, you enjoyed any of the books, please consider leaving a review and rating on Amazon or Goodreads and recommending them to family and friends (or, better yet, buying copies as gifts for special occasions!)

I can always be reached by email (excaliburparchment@gmail.com) or you can follow me on Facebook or Twitter to get the latest info, photos, reviews and news.

Looking forward to hearing from you and seeing you again at various events.
