Richard Bard Inks Book Deal for Self-Published Thrillers

Thriller writer Richard Bard has landed a three-book deal with Amazon Publishing’s Thomas & Mercer imprint for his Brainrush series.

Bard wrote on his site: “I couldn’t be happier with the new relationship. The team at T&M has an author-centric philosophy that is refreshing and inspiring … It’s an exciting time for this new author!”
