my-grl-front1

Hello Everyone,

Today is the re-launched of a book I am in the process of reading. It is a thriller by John Howell, entitled My GRL, and it will keep you turning the pages.

The cover is new and the book edited once again to enhance the experience. What is really nice is the price has been cut for the introduction. You can buy the kindle version for a special introduction price of

$0.99

 

 

 

Here is a blurb about the book.

John J. Cannon successful San Francisco lawyer takes a well-deserved leave of absence from the firm and buys a boat he names My GRL. He is unaware that his newly purchased boat had already been targeted by a terrorist group. John’s first inkling of a problem is when he wakes up in the hospital where he learns he was found unconscious next to the dead body of the young woman who sold him the boat in the first place. John now stands between the terrorists and the success of their mission.

John began his writing as a full-time occupation after an extensive business career. His specialty is thriller fiction novels, but John also writes poetry and short stories.  His first book, My GRL, introduces the exciting adventures of the book’s central character, John J. Cannon. The second Cannon novel, His Revenge, continues the adventure, while the final book in the trilogy, Our Justice, launched in September 2016.  All books are available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle editions.

 

John lives in Port Aransas, Texas with his wife and their spoiled rescue pets.

For those of you living in Germany, I have checked to see if the special price applies for Amazon Germany, and it does. So, hurry and get your copy now. I’m sure you will enjoy it.

Book Launch! FORBIDDEN By Feather Stone

fullsizeoutput_c03

 

Forbidden by Feather Stone is a romantic suspense book that I consider simply excellent. It conquers you. I opened the book and started reading.  By the time, I had reached the last sentence on the first page, my heart was saying, ‘this is a winner.’ You hear and feel the culture of the Middle East. My attention, captured, my curiosity grew.  I forgot whatever I had planned to do and found myself walking deeper and deeper into the world Feather Stone had painted.

 

Her main protagonists had me sitting on the edge. I say, protagonists, because I saw Eliza MacKay and Captain Sharif both as main characters caught up in an intrigue that could take both of their lives.

 

Eliza MacKay, the paramedic, is the PTSD woman suffering from immeasurable loss and Captain Sharif, the devout Muslim who tries to keep them both alive. Both commit repeated centripetal actions which make them suspicious of each other before they realize only trust can save them both.

 

Forbidden is not one of those sloppy, soapy, unrealistic romantic suspense books that use bang, bang, boom in the bed to cover up for a weakly developed structure or plot. No, Forbidden is well-structured. I didn’t find any character situations that were unresolved. Think, Daphne Du Maurier, and you will see the same qualities in Stone’s Forbidden.

 

A writer’s ability to craft a story determines whether the reader will enter the writer’s world, and Feather Stone shows how well she masters her craft. She drew me in. She has woven together suspense and romance and has presented us with a well-written, well-structured and well-crafted story.  Forbidden will keep you on edge until the last sentence in the epilogue.

Congratulations Ms. Feather Stone on an outstanding novel that kept my mind engaged. I enjoyed every reading minute. All the best for the future.

Shalom aleichem,

BACKSTAGE with Author Eric Thomasma

Hello Everyone,
Happy New Year! Wishing each of you an awesome year.
, I discovered through Twitter that Eric Thomasma’s new book will be coming out soon. I do not know if any of you as my readers know about him. So, this is a excellent opportunity to get to know him.

Enjoy the interview. He makes some excellent points, and he is an excellent writer.

By the way this is a reblog from Camilla Stein’s blog.

Today on CSReview, author Eric Thomasma is sharing his love for science fiction, and being part of a wonderful world called children’s literature.

CS: Welcome to CSReview, Eric. Let’s start with something I ask every author of the genre – why do you write sci-fi?

fw-profile-imageEric Thomasma: As a young boy I was captivated by those now iconic words, “Space, the final frontier…” I was fascinated by the concept of faster-than-light space travel and the possibilities of life on other planets and the contrast/comparison with our own societies. I remember watching the moon landings and the early development of NASA and looked forward to the days of being able to be a passenger on a flight to Alpha Centauri or other seemingly unreachable destinations. In time I came to realize that the reality of our world politics would keep us from achieving such goals within my lifetime, so…

Cover Reveal! ABDUCTED LIFE BY PATRICIA JOSEPHINE

To all of my readers, here is an engaging book you don’t want to miss reading by Patricia Josephine. It is coming out soon, and I will keep you posted.

S

abducted-life-cover_1

Blurb

Savannah Janowitz’s perfect life was destroyed the night she and her boyfriend vanished without a trace. When she reappears a year later––alone––she’s a shell of her former self. Robbed of her popularity and her boyfriend, she has no memory of what happened to her. Savannah struggles to move forward as strange, new abilities manifest.

Evan Sullivan never gave extra-terrestrials much thought until the night he and Savannah were abducted. While Savannah’s memory was wiped clean, he remembers every horrific detail. Constantly reminded of the experiments that made him less than human, Evan hides in the shadows and watches Savannah rebuild her life without him.

But neither can let the other go. When their paths cross, Savannah and Evan finally see a glimmer of their old lives return. As they face what happened to them, they soon discover they aren’t safe. There’s more to fear than what’s hiding in the stars.
