The next follow-up to Amazon #1 for Psychological Thrillers, LIES WE NEVER SEE and DEATH ON THE NEW MOON, Michael Lindley’s latest dark and twisting tale of love, betrayal and murder set in the Low Country of South Carolina and the emotional and edge-of-your-seat relationship and travails of attorney, Hanna Walsh, and now former Charleston Police Detective, Alex Frank.

When a twin sister goes missing, the other sister feels her terror, her pain… her death.

Early reviews for THE SISTER TAKEN

-“… hard to put down.”

-“… a real page-turner with many twists and turns.”

-“… you can’t wait to get to the end, but then wish it hadn’t ended.”

-“… and I STILL cannot believe how it all unfolded!”

-“… a series to get caught up on!”

“Totally loved this book!”

In THE SISTER TAKEN, Hanna and Alex again find themselves in the troubled waters of love and commitment. Alex returns to South Carolina with the promise of a new start but with strings attached that Hanna may never be able to live with.

The shocking disappearance of a young woman and suspicious death of the father of one of Hanna’s clients puts both Hanna and Alex back into the cross-hairs of the ruthless Dellahousaye crime family. The story plays out against the compelling backdrop of Charleston, Pawleys Island and the fictional Dugganville, South Carolina. THE SISTER TAKEN can be read as a stand-alone novel, or readers can start at the beginning of the series with LIES WE NEVER SEE, A FOLLOWING SEA and DEATH ON THE NEW MOON.

Stephen King has clarified—or walked back—his comments on the Oscars, calling them “rigged in favor of white folks”

According to Alison Flood from The Guardian, Stephen King is now clarifying controversial comments about diversity, acknowledging that while in a perfect world ‘judgments of creative excellence should be blind’, we’re not there yet… Support our news coverage by subscribing to our Kindle Nation Daily Digest.

Stephen King has rowed back on his controversial comments about diversity in the Oscars, acknowledging in a lengthy essay that the awards are still “rigged in favor of the white folks”.

King provoked anger among authors and fans after tweeting earlier this month that he “would never consider diversity in matters of art. Only quality. It seems to me that to do otherwise would be wrong.” King is able to nominate films in three Oscars categories – best picture, adapted screenplay and original screenplay – and had been commenting on the lack of recognition for women and artists of colour in this year’s Oscars nominations.

“Damn, Stephen. Damn. I thought you were better than this,” said the award-winning American science fiction writer NK Jemisin. “It should be obvious that diversity and quality aren’t separate qualities, or in opposition to each other – except in the minds of bigots”. Writer Roxane Gay agreed. “As a fan, this is painful to read from you,” she told King. “It implies that diversity and quality cannot be synonymous. They are not separate things. Quality is everywhere but most industries only believe in quality from one demographic. And now, here you are.”

King later clarified his comments on Twitter, adding: “The most important thing we can do as artists and creative people is make sure everyone has the same fair shot, regardless of sex, color, or orientation. Right now such people are badly underrepresented, and not only in the arts. You can’t win awards if you’re shut out of the game.”

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

YA Kindle Book of The Day

4.5 stars – 1,961 reviews
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

The first ten lies they tell you in high school.

“Speak up for yourself–we want to know what you have to say.” From the first moment of her freshman year at Merryweather High, Melinda knows this is a big fat lie, part of the nonsense of high school. She is friendless, outcast, because she busted an end-of-summer party by calling the cops, so now nobody will talk to her, let alone listen to her. As time passes, she becomes increasingly isolated and practically stops talking altogether. Only her art class offers any solace, and it is through her work on an art project that she is finally able to face what really happened at that terrible party: she was raped by an upperclassman, a guy who still attends Merryweather and is still a threat to her. Her healing process has just begun when she has another violent encounter with him. But this time Melinda fights back, refuses to be silent, and thereby achieves a measure of vindication. In Laurie Halse Anderson’s powerful novel, an utterly believable heroine with a bitterly ironic voice delivers a blow to the hypocritical world of high school. She speaks for many a disenfranchised teenager while demonstrating the importance of speaking up for oneself.

Speak was a 1999 National Book Award Finalist for Young People’s Literature.

Dorothy Must Die

by Danielle Paige
4.3 stars – 935 reviews
Text-to-Speech: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

The New York Times bestselling first book in a dark new series that reimagines the Oz saga, from debut author Danielle Paige.

I didn’t ask for any of this. I didn’t ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado—taking you with it—you have no choice but to go along, you know?

Sure, I’ve read the books. I’ve seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can’t be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There’s still a road of yellow brick—but even that’s crumbling.

What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.

My name is Amy Gumm—and I’m the other girl from Kansas. I’ve been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I’ve been trained to fight. And I have a mission: Remove the Tin Woodman’s heart. Steal the Scarecrow’s brain. Take the Lion’s courage. And—Dorothy must die.

Power Sex and Shame: Overcoming Sexual Exploitation

by Peter Mosgofian
4.7 stars – 10 reviews
Here’s the set-up:

In this book, survivors and their advocates (friends and family) will learn to identify how exploitation occurs and recognize the various ways people in power can manipulate others to compromise their sexuality. Readers will also explore the powerful impacts of shame and vulnerability and how to overcome those significant forces. The author provides specific steps toward healing from the abuse of power and introduces practical, every day actions to take on the misuse of power at a systemic level in all areas of our lives.

“Serving in my counseling practice for forty years has impacted me deeply as I have worked with women and men who have been or were currently being exploited by men (or women) misusing their power. This book provides a balanced, compassionate approach to help survivors and their advocates heal. – Peter Mosgofian

The facts show that untold (and it isn’t really a fact if the numbers are “untold”) millions of women (and a large number of men) have been victims of some type of sexual exploitation, often beginning very early in life. Sexual exploitation by men and women in positions of power at every level of our society is big news because it is a big, pervasive problem—in the numbers of victims, the severity of the harm, and the adverse moral and ethical impact on every level of society.

It’s Only the Dream that Counts: Short stories all over the world

by Arye Dreyfus
4.6 stars – 3 reviews
Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

Israeli French born author / teacher Arye Dreyfus has extended his career for long years as an envoy to Africa and Europe. He describes unique people as dissimilar as people can be without condoning or condemning but with an evident empathy.

At first stories revolving around such at odd characters do not belong together but in this curiosity piquing book they do as they all share an essential characteristic, they never give their dreams up. Each of his cases delves with a peculiar issue, together they are a bunch of human beings unflinchingly chasing their dreams in a bitter struggle against the misery and the complexity of life. They do not belong to the high society or to the wretched and poor, just ordinary people trying to come to terms with the resistance their struggle inevitably raise. Their twisted trails take us among others from Berlin to the jungles of Africa, from an empty airport in New- York to a Nazi celebration in Paris during the Second World War and to an evening under shelling in Haifa.

Love, all kinds of love, is characteristically a main component especially love in situations of alienation and distress. Faith and nationalities aren’t relevant but the Jewish background of the author is never in doubt.

Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled
Here’s the set-up:

The lost souls of Eastport, Maine struggle for Providence and tolerance. Can a stranger deliver salvation?

THE SHIPBUILDER is moody and somewhat grim. It has a deep undercurrent of fate and magic at its core, strongly reminding this reader of the work of Daphne du Maurier and Emily Brontë. With her passion for history and the accurate portrayal of the period, author Salina Baker brings this time and place to harsh, vivid life. In doing so, she’s crafted a resonant and compellingly readable novel. — Susan Rooke, author of The Space Between

In the summer of 1869, beleaguered for-hire killer Zach Dimitru arrives in Eastport, Maine, bearing an amulet and searching for absolution. His salvation is dependent on the Benoit Family, who are also pitiless and tormented. Zach’s deliverance is reliant on Juliette Benoit. The young woman is grieving the loss of her soul mate, whom she believes has reincarnated without her. Miraculously, the amulet imparts messages to Juliette. The fate of both Zach and Juliette, as well as the town, depends upon her ability to learn and convey those lessons before the arrival of a hurricane—one with the force to devastate Eastport.
