Press release from Shelf Unbound magazine
Last Stop: Paris by John Pearce has been honored as one of six finalists in the 2015 Shelf Unbound Competition for Best Indie Book. Held annually, the competition, hosted by Shelf Unbound magazine, receives about a thousand entries and is, according to publisher Margaret Brown, “a highly competitive field.”
“Last Stop: Paris exemplifies the best of independently published books and we are thrilled to spotlight it and include an interview with John Pearce in the December/January 2016 issue of Shelf Unbound magazine,” says Brown.
John Pearce is a part-time Parisian who lives quite happily most of the the year in Sarasota, Florida. He worked as a journalist in Washington and Europe, where he covered economics for the International Herald Tribune and edited a business magazine. After a business career in Sarasota, he spends his days working on his future books – The new one, Last Stop: Paris, is a 2015 project. It is a sequel to Treasure of Saint-Lazare.
For several months each year, he and his wife Jan live in Paris, walk its streets, and chase down interesting settings for future books and his blog, PartTimeParisian.com. They lived earlier in Frankfurt, Germany, which gave him valuable insights for several of the scenes in Last Stop: Paris.
Thanks to Shelf Unbound for the honor. Last Stop: Paris and its prequel, Treasure of Saint-Lazare, are available in Kindle, paperback and audiobook editions from Amazon.
