WATKINS GLEN, NY - The Kickstarter campaign is underway for Fracking Justice - the sequel to The Fracking War.
Some folks who contributed to The Fracking War have already signed up for Fracking Justice.
My apologies for not getting this word out to you sooner... I've been bouncing back and forth between NY and California and at this moment, I might be hard pressed to say which state I am in!
This time the Kickstarter rewards include an inscribed copy of Fracking Justice and an e-book as before. But we have added an audiobook - which I am recording in New York next week. In addition, we have T-shirts designed by NY artist Amy Colburn, the same artist who did the cover for Fracking Justice. They will be Seneca Lake blue.
Here is the link to the Fracking Justice Kickstarter. LINK: FJ Kickstarter.
And below are the book endorsements from that will appear on the back cover: Filmmaker Josh Fox, author Will Potter, mystery writer Elle Ashe and Finger Lakes Times editor Mike Cutillo.
As always, thanks for all your support.
And in about a year, look for the third book in this fracking trilogy - Fracking Evil.
---------------COMMENTS FROM REVIEWERS--------------
Josh Fox, director of the films Gasland and Gasland 2
At a time when fracking and other forms of extreme fossil fuel development threaten to destroy everything we hold dear, Fracking Justice is there to remind us of the true cost of fracking. It may be fiction but it shows how the fossil fuel industry is fracturing not only our land but our communities. Read this page-turner, then pass it on.
Will Potter, author of Green is the New Red
"This isn't just a good read—it's grounded in a very real ecological crisis, and a backlash against those who dare to speak up. Fracking Justice captures exactly what is at stake, both for the planet and for our freedoms."
Mike Cutillo, executive editor Finger Lakes Times newspaper, Geneva, NY
Michael J. Fitzgerald has the uncanny ability to write in the meaty,
fact-filled manner of a veteran hardscrabble journalist while also weaving
a deft and enjoyable storyline befitting a seasoned novelist. In Fracking
Justice — just like in The Fracking War — he puts his knowledge about the
environmental and social issues associated with hydraulic fracturing to use
in crafting a real page-turner with characters you feel for and care
about. This is a must-read whether you want to learn more about fracking
or are simply a fan of good writing.
Ellie Ashe, author of Chasing the Dollar
Fracking Justice is a smart, powerful page-turner! Michael Fitzgerald’s Fracking series is leading the way into a genre we need more of—environmental thriller. It’s exciting, edge-of-your-seat writing, and is all the more scary because it’s so timely.
