Release Celebration~Flight For Control

Happy book birthday to Flight For Control by Karlene Petitt! I've been waiting for this one for so long and I'm so excited that it's finally out! I remember the first time I read part of it, years ago when I met Karlene at a writer's retreat. I immediately knew it was something special. And now, finally, all of you get to read it!

As I am a YA author and often recommend YA reads, I have to let you know though, Flight For Control is NOT a YA novel. It's very adult, thriller genre in fact. But it's oh so good! So, for all of my adult readers, here is a bit about Flight For Control:
After a ten-year leave, Kathryn Jacobs has been invited back to the N.T.S.B to investigate a series of unexplained airline crashes. But her husband, Captain Bill Jacobs, has his concerns. While her twin daughters are off at camp, and Bill is actively campaigning for the Pilot Union Presidency, Kathryn secretly begins her investigation. What she learns will shock the nation.

Flight For Control is a thriller that reads like a mystery. But to Kathryn, there is no mystery on the condition of the airline industry—it’s broken. Planes are crashing. Pensions are lost. Pilots are financially and emotionally bankrupt due to fatigue, furloughs, and loss of seniority.

It’s time that someone takes control before it’s too late—unless it already is.

Your life is in your pilot’s hands. Do you know who’s flying your plane?

Flight For Control can be found at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other major retailers. You can get a signed copy from Karlene at this link

  2. Wow! That got my attention. My dad was an commercial airline captain for years and years. When he retired, he went to work for the FAA and was a certified crash investigator. And I love to read thrillers.

  8. I'm a YA reader and writer but the premise for this novel is just, wow. I got a few chills, especially given the way things have been going for the airline industry of late. Sounds like this one is a gripper, bound to hook the reader and never let go.

    1. Thanks Angela, yes.. this is definitely not YA. Thankfully my protagonist sent her daughters away to camp before all the bad stuff happened!
