I have had a book on my Reminder List since 2012.   I was going to upload a cover photo .Now, the book is not listed in Amazon, Fantastic Fiction, or Barnes and Noble.  Also, on the author's website, it does not list the book.  It is like the book doesn't exist.

The Trigger: A Novel :: Boyd Morrison

Did you see it on the authors website? It's possible an outside source attributed the title to the wrong author

My next thought is maybe the working title changed?

Next I'd wonder if it's a work thats been cancelled. I've seen that happen a few times. Linda Howard and Linda Jones did it recently. Notice went out about a sequal to Blood Born I had it on my wish list for quite a while. and about a year later we learned that they werent going to write it

No, it is not on the author's website.  I guess one of those things could have happened.

Yeah I was going through my WL recently and came across a Sarah McCarty book that had been on it for years.  I was checking various WL books to see how cheap they were to acquire on my own and this one was nowhere to be found.  I think someone had shelved it on goodsreads or put a tag on here that it had been cancelled. 

About Blood Born: I have that on my IPOD from cds I downloaded from the library. Wondering if I should bother with it now.

The Trigger by L.J. Sellers might be the book you want.  When I searched for The Trigger and Boyd Morrison, one of the results mentioned his friend L.J. Sellers new book The Trigger.

I have a book on my WL that was cancelled when the publisher went under.  Rumors are that the book was just about ready, in it's final edits.  The new publisher has not released it, even though they do handle eBook only manuscripts.  

I just cannot take it off my WL.

Jean, that might be what happened.  The description is nothing like Boyd Morrison's type of storyline.  Just might never know.

This is interesting:

https://www.facebook.com/BoydMorrisonWriter

Boyd Morrison says :

Book sale alert! My friend LJ Sellers has come out with her new book THE TRIGGER.

And the link leads to an Amazon listing for Trigger, by LJ Sellers.  Sellers appears to be a real person rather than a pseudonym.

Interesting.  So, somehow the book got put into the PBS system under the wrong author.  At least I know for sure now that the book is not by Boyd Morrison.  Thank you.
