Here’s the set-up:
DEATH BEFORE FACEBOOK, formerly NEW ORLEANS BEAT, is the FOURTH book in the Skip Langdon series by EDGAR AWARD-WINNING author Julie Smith.

Murder most viral!

Twenty-year-old Geoff Kavanagh should never have posted about seeing his father murdered…because way too many people on the TOWN, his online community, knew things about his family he didn’t even suspect. Decades-old skeletons start falling out of closets after Geoff’s untimely death, thanks to New Orleans Detective Skip Langdon. Langdon finds Geoff’s gorgeous mom strangely uninterested in her son’s fatal fall, but Mom’s apparently the only one. It seems the post has gone viral. Suddenly all the TOWNSpeople have theories—and ambition as cyberdetectives. What’s a murderer to do but kill his way out?

Calling the windup “a virtuoso spin on Rashomon,” Kirkus noted that, along the way, “Smith worms her way deeply and painfully into her cast’s layers and layers of past relations, getting deeper than ever into Skip as well.”

Reviews

“…reader-friendly from log-on to log-off.” —The Orlando Sentinel

“A poisonous bouquet from a still-rising star.” —Kirkus

“A peek into the sometimes dangerous world of the computer-obsessed, set in the sultry heat of New Orleans and tempered with just the right dose of Southern humor.” —USA Today

“Smith not only gives us the lowdown on the Big Easy but also take us into the often weird world of computer bulletin boards….” —The Orlando Sentinel

Here’s the set-up:

Two victims. One sociopath. Lots of terror.

Fifteen-year-old Lisa Duncan has attracted the interest of serial killer Conrad (Rad) Sanders. At an isolated resort in Utah, he watches as vivacious Lisa begins an unlikely friendship with another teenager, Lu Jakes, the strange and introverted daughter of employees at the resort. Lu enters Rad’s fantasies as well. He learns Lu is being abused by her stepmother and toys with the notion of freeing her from her sad life and keeping her awhile as his captive. Lu seems like an easy conquest who could be persuaded to act out his fantasy by killing her new friend.

But Lu has an ally with powers beyond Rad’s imagination.

Here’s the set-up:

Project Moses is a high-tech, bioterrorism thriller in the Grisham mode with romance, suspense and humor.

Enzo Lee, 37, a burned out reporter, has forsaken investigative reporting on the East Coast to churn out feature fluff in San Francisco. He likes his North Beach apartment, steps away from his Chinatown roots. Running, tai chi, great food, women who are attracted to his exotic looks. Life is good.

Then, Lee’s comfortable life is shaken when he is ordered to cover the unexplained deaths of a local judge and prosecutor. Intrigued by the connection, and the judge’s attractive niece, Sarah Armstrong,  Lee begins to uncover a bioterrorism scandal whose perpetrators – including government officials and Silicon Valley titans – will kill to conceal.

When Lee and Sarah become targets, the question becomes whether the pair can evade their hunters and piece together the story before their time runs out. Project Moses is set in San Francisco, New York and Silicon Valley. By a Pulitzer Prize-winnng author.

Here’s the set-up:

May I pray for you? Five words that would forever change my life. No, I am neither a priest nor rabbi, but I was the recipient of those words from a doctor several years ago when being told that I was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and had a small chance of survival, and included the phrase as the opening passage in my book, A Call to Faith. Although surviving cancer is a recurrent theme, it is weaved throughout the text in the genre of inspirational and religious bodies of work, similar in vein to The Shack or 90 Minutes in Heaven. The struggles are real and give expression to both grief and hope. The events encountered in the story are true. The story is my story and expressed from a third person point of view.

The story is set in Charleston and finds its characters meandering throughout the Lowcountry. Young and handsome, beautiful wife and children, and a small fortune before the age of thirty. He had it all – or did he? Skip Sibley (main character) never knew his marine aviator father who died in a plane crash when he was young. Struck with the tragedy of a younger sister who committed suicide in college and who continued to pay apparitional visits to Skip in times of need. Encounters with God at just the appropriate time when giving up on life was more than a thought. But his toughest battles may still lie ahead of him; finding his faith in God through cancer and divorce.

This faith-based work takes its readers on a tour of the South from churches to hospitals. Southern flavor is established as the Sibley family seeks help from Gullah native Ms. Janie, who cares for Skip and the children during their time of need. The story attempts to show resilience in the face of adversity that comes into each of our lives, and that only through finding a relationship with God can we ensure that life will continue beyond death. It can touch the hearts of those who have lived or visited the Lowcountry, or who have lost loved ones to cancer, suicide or accidental death.

Here’s the set-up:
In the third book in this series, US Grant and his wife visit Cincinnati, just down the road from Georgetown and Bethel. At a gala political function, Grant thinks that he sees an apparition. When the ghost disappears and a reporter stumbles on the scene, Grant knows that he has to solve the mystery of the ghost and why it would appear to him. Taking on the issues of 19th century spiritualism and the recently freed slave, this book looks at the ways the nation changed in the months following the end of the Civil War.

Here’s the set-up:

The biblical indictment to Eve that states: ‘Your desire shall be for your husband . . .’ rings all too true for Goldie Benelak, a woman that stalks her estranged husband, only to become embroiled within the machinations of the CIA in its use of her as an unwitting assassin in the killing of her love rival.

‘The Watchers’ is a tale of social mores and changing identities that should initiate the reader into the inner teachings of the cabala. It is also a book that delves in part into the realm of non-fiction with regards to US covert operations: the program in mind control, the war on terror and the special virus program.

One Reviewer Notes:
Lowe's taut thriller is fronted by a likable protagonist who retains his sense of humor. The story's long-reaching conspiracy is elaborate but never overwhelming, so readers can appreciate the stockpiling of secrets, elusive characters and murders committed to preserve those secrets. A thriller with an ideal fusion of wile and wit.
Kirkus Reviews

Evoking Anne Rice, Dante Alighieri, Stephen King, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, Samuel Peralta’s Poetic Sonata Vampirica is Our eBook of the Day at just $1.99, with 5.0 Stars on 8 Straight Rave Reviews, and Here’s a Free Sample

Here’s the set-up for Samuel Peralta’s Sonata Vampirica, just $1.99 on Kindle :

Sonata Vampirica traces the final days in a vampiric liaison – from desire to perdition. A novella-in-verse, each chapter alternates perspective between the fiend and his victim, and marks a return to the essential horror at the heart of vampire lore.

Evoking equal parts Anne Rice, Dante Alighieri, Stephen King, and Gerard Manley Hopkins, the narrative finds in the allure of the vampire a metaphor for the reality of violent relationships, and within that framework explodes the myth in all its sensuality and brutality.

Sonata Vampirica has been hailed a landmark work in the new media literary renaissance. Conceived by award-winning author Samuel Peralta, the cycle was serialized on Twitter and Google’s Blogspot over the course of three months, to online acclaim.

Classical in approach, innovative in thematic ambition, Sonata Vampirica is a tour-de-force, a re-invention of the genre, an imaginative discourse on the extremes of love, the horror of abusive relationships, and the struggle for redemption.

Sonata Vampirica was #1 on the Amazon Kindle Hot New Releases in Poetry, and was a #1 Best Seller in Poetry. Sonata Vampirica was also ranked in the Top 10 in GoodReads’ List of Great Small Press Books and Chapbooks.

From the reviewers:

Stunning, brilliant… Truly becoming one of my favorite poets. Ever.”
– Ellen Hopkins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Perfect

“[Peralta] writes of things that matter, so beautifully and simply, he can reduce you to tears.”
– Julia Williams, Amazon bestselling author of The Summer Season

“What power in these concise, muscled lines.”
– Hannah Stephenson, The Huffington Post

“Poetry has power that no other writing possesses. This book is evidence.”
– Christopher Reilley, Poet laureate of Dedham, Massachusetts and author of Grief Tattoos

Pool of Deceit (An Inspector Fortnam Mystery)

by John Kemp

Here’s the set-up:

Pool of Deceit features Alistair Fortnam of New Scotland Yard, a brilliant detective who has extensive training in Behavioural Sciences.
Fortnam’s had a gilded upbringing, a car-wreck of a marriage (now many miles behind him) and an upwardly rising career.
We find him in Florida on assignment and leading an investigation into a sudden death at the Blue Heron Hotel, on the idyllic Anna Maria Island.
Diane Lewis is a top sales manager for a pharmaceutical company who has died after eating a calorie-loaded hamburger at the hotel’s swimming poool. It was not a cholesterol induced heart attack that killed her, but poisoning of a kind.
After Fortnam interviews the thirteen suspects, the investigation quickly becomes indigestible to him as well.
Interestingly, some witnesses have quite different motives as to why they may have wished the deceased harm.
Unfortunately, identifying their secrets and the guilty party is as tricky as untangling an old set of Christmas lights in a dark attic.
Fortnam attempts to sort it all out and make the connections…

Four Seasons of Romance

by Rachel Remington

4.6 stars – 7 Reviews
Or currently FREE for Amazon Prime Members Via the Kindle Lending Library
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

Four Seasons of Romance is the story of Catherine and Leo, a sweeping account of epic feelings, tough decisions, and unkept promises. Choices will be made, lives changed, and hearts broken; but will love triumph in the end?

“In the gentle spring of 1935, Leo Taylor first laid eyes on Catherine Woods and their journey began. Theirs was a love that coursed strong and dangerous, eternal and eternally unpredictable. It’s a story of love, but not a perfect love story; the good ones never are.

Neither Catherine nor Leo imagined the first spark igniting a fire that would burn for more than seventy years—a fire that neither the Connecticut River nor the Ammonoosuc River could wash away. A fire that went through the pouring rains to burn until Catherine and Leo took their last breaths. And while they are both gone, the flame that fueled their hearts is not extinguished. It burns on in each of us through this story—forever.”

Reviews

“It’s a beautiful story. I was definitely moved by it but I most especially appreciated the fact that it seemed realistic in that it portrayed through the main characters, Leo and Catherine, how life and romance run their course with the most unexpected turns and it is very fitting with the analogy of the rivers that framed the story so nicely at the beginning and end of the novel.” –Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars

“The story was awesome! I especially loved the ending; real tear jerker and very satisfying. It was extremely beautiful. The characters were very alive for me and I enjoyed their transition from the beginning of the story to the end. They really drew me in. A very dynamic and interesting journey of love. I really enjoyed it.” – Amazon Reviewer, 5 Stars
