David-KovachWhen Ames, IA author David Kovach released his debut novel, Five Days of Fear, in November 2012, he received much acclaim from reviewers and independent booksellers. But now, Kovach's suspense novel has caught the national attention of bookselling giants Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

Five Days of Fear will be featured as one of Amazon's Hot 100 Kindle Books for the month of March. The Hot 100 is reserved for a few select titles in each genre and almost guarantees a place on the best-selling list. Throughout March, the Kindle book version of Five Days of Fear will be available for less than $3.99.

At the same time, Kovach's debut novel has been selected for in-store placement in Barnes and Noble, an honor reserved for only a very small percentage of titles published annually.  Kovach and his publisher, Light Messages, are working on scheduling an author event with the Barnes and Noble stores in the towns of Ames and Des Moines, IA, as well as other cities where Kovach will be visiting throughout the year.

Five Days of Fear has received rave reviews from book bloggers, billed as "the epitome of a suspense thriller" (A Bookish Way of Life) "with plot twists ripped from today's news headlines" (Lavish Bookshelf). In this exciting suspense novel, Jessica Britton's well-ordered world is slammed against a brutal reality and her faith is tested when her mom is kidnapped, her dad is shot, and authorities can find no clues to begin their investigation. Jessica's own anxiety and fear for her mother's life compels her to help FBI Agent Dan Hamilton look for motives and clues that would lead to rescuing her mom. By chance, clues begin to emerge, and the once floundering investigation speeds to a hectic race against time and criminal minds in a desperate attempt to save Jessica's mom and the lives of many in San Francisco's business district.

With the all the positive attention Kovach's novel is garnering, Light Messages has also begun a national campaign to target book clubs. Bookclubs can enter to win 10 free copies of Five Days of Fear by visiting tlcbooktours.com/book-clubs.
