Shipping to United States: $5.00

In Less of Me, we meet Andrew Boyd, a Bay Area author riding a string of best selling spy novels featuring a retired Senior Intelligence Officer, Rance Broadback, who now serves the country as a top secret General Contractor, a spy / private investigator with both the highest security clearance and the highest daily rate.

Andy is under pressure to deliver the first draft of the next Broadback thriller, set in the mountains of eastern Kentucky entitled, Appalachian Malady. But Andrew Boyd is hurting. His weight is at an all time high and his self image is at the other end of the spectrum. He is depressed, and, as he describes in his daily blog, he has even considered what the world might be like with one less novelist.

Take a personal journey of discovery with Andrew Boyd and, along the way, look over his shoulder to read the entire text of the first draft of Appalachian Malady as it comes to life on the screen of his iBook.
