Irreplaceable Delayed, But Soon to Come!

Due to some pipeline issues, and quite literally the storm in Colorado that has flooded the entire state, Irreplaceable has indeed been delayed.  However, beginning with the Kindle on October 10th, Irreplaceable will gradually roll out across all the platforms.  iPad, Nook, Sony and Kobo.  You name it, we’ll be there soon.  In the meantime, take a peek at the finished artwork!


Andy Carpenter

Distant Signal’s upcoming release of our first novel, Irreplaceable (formerly Bounty) will have the astounding artist Andy Carpenter designing the cover. Andy’s work has graced timeless covers like Tom Brokaw’s The Greatest Generation, Richard Preston’s The Hot Zone and Carl Sagan’s Billions and Billions.

Being an advocate of small and independent press, and of course great design, we are thrilled to be working with him.

Speaking of, Irreplaceable will be broadcasting its signal through eReaders, worldwide on September 17, 2013.


Distant Signal is proud to announce Irreplaceable, a crime novel written by Mark Gonzales.

Yearning for his dead wife and desperate to pay his father’s crushing medical bills, depressed and restless bounty hunter Alec McKey rushes into a plan he thinks will solve all of his problems. Rather than turn in his latest bounty, Ginger Birns, Alec chooses to help her sell the priceless microchip she has stolen from a corporate titan. The two are hunted by a matchless hit-man through the winding streets of Los Angeles who is less interested in obtaining what Ginger has stolen, than in recapturing his long lost thrill of the hunt.

Though Alec tells himself he is risking it all to score enough money to take care of his father, his true motivation is this fact — Ginger looks, sounds, and feels exactly like his dead wife. God, fate, or whatever he used to call it is finally giving him a second chance at the only future he could ever imagine… the one with his wife.

If Alec can keep Ginger safe for the next 72 hours he just might have everything he’s ever wanted.
