The Last Friend Gets a Deal!

MeetAfter thirty sleepless nights, The Last Friend ended up earning a spot as one of the Kindle Press’s publication choices for 2017. For me, this is a huge achievement. Between convincing current and potential readers to nominate my novel for publication, and then, finally, to receive notification from Kindle Press that my novel will be published…it’s […]


The Last Friend – My Take

“Fifteen years after his daughter’s abduction, her last friend knocks at his door.” This quote from the cover blurb still spooks me out. Part of the reason is that I know what this “last friend” is all about (you’ll find out too, and even more in The First Friend). But another part of me is […]


Why all the different covers?

If you’re a Harvey Church fan, you’ve likely noticed the change in covers on a few of my novels. In particular, Blackmail Broker recently had a change in cover. This was for testing purposes only, and I was curious to see whether or not I could generate more interest in the second novel of Edwin […]


Cold Memory & a Cool Contest for Readers

I just revealed the cover for my next series on my Facebook page. Although that series currently has no name (more on that a little later), the first novel is titled Cold Memory. Currently slated for publication in mid-July 2017, Cold Memory is substantially different than the Edwin Burrows Mysteries. This new series involves a bigger mystery, which […]


Blackmail Broker

As I  approach the publication date for Blackmail Broker, I find I’m a little anxious. Yes, the reviews so far for Alibi Aficionado have been incredibly supportive. But Blackmail Broker is…well, it’s different. In this novel, Edwin Burrows has to find Rachel super-quick because he is tasked with solving a different kind of crime. When one of […]


The Edwin Burrows Mysteries

When I finished writing Blackmail Broker (book 2 in the Edwin Burrows series) I felt I needed a break. I started a new novel, Never Get Caught, about a modern-day bank robbery that brings the main character back to a robbery that changed his own life forever, and not entirely for the good. Roughly halfway through Never […]

Two Weeks Before Alibi Aficionado Is Live!

With two weeks left before Alibi Aficionado introduces millions of people (okay, maybe a handful) to Edwin Burrows, it’s probably worth making a mention of what I’ve been working on. I say this because it seems to change from day to day, depending on where the creative mojo is flowing. At this very moment, I just finished […]

Alibi Aficionado

Coming on February 1, 2017!!! Edwin Burrows, CPA, can’t do anything right. Not marriage, not office etiquette, not saving his boss’s daughter, not even public accounting. So when he’s tasked with constructing an alibi for the firm’s biggest client, everyone has low expectations…Including Edwin. In Alibi Aficionado, Edwin is an accidental investigator, a cross between […]

Harvey Church

Hi, my name is Harvey Church and I’m a self-published mystery novelist. My novels are different than others in the genre because I take a different approach to my stories. In my Edwin Burrows novels, some might say that different approach is absolute hilarity (most would probably say they’re childish in an endearing way). I don’t believe we’ve […]
