Peeper by Paul Chandler



Here's the synopsis for my novel Peeper:


Andrew Ash can read your mind. With very little effort, he can peek into your head and see your memories. And with only a small measure of guilt, he will steal your secrets. Andrew has used his special talent to make himself and his business partner very wealthy. But the money has come too easily, and the prospect of becoming wealthier still has lost its appeal.

David Martin is the host of a wildly popular late night talk show. He's also on trial for the brutal murder of his wife and two daughters. Despite overwhelming evidence of his guilt, a star-struck jury is determined to set him free. Andrew, by virtue of his extraordinary ability, knows the truth and he's willing to risk everything to convince a sympathetic jury to look past the fame and see the monster.

Paul Trask, the greedy CEO of Micro-Delta Corporation, has stumbled onto Andrew's amazing talent. He quickly realizes Andrew's money-making potential and hatches a scheme to exploit him. Trask, driven by dreams of limitless wealth, will stop at nothing to secure Andrew's cooperation.

Re: Imaginar Friends By Yolanda Jackson


   My new book is Imaginary Friends,this is my second novel, my first was Peter Carrot-top all available right here at Barnes and Noble





Everyone has or had an Imaginary Friend in their lives one time or another,But what did yours tell

you to do? Does yours tell you to cheat,kill,or destroy? or do they simply talk to you at night?

Many are affarid to answer these questions, but if one choose to ignore them, sometimes they can

become so real,They will surely over power your mind and every rational thought you ever had; so

take sometime to investigate the voices that are talking to you, the longer you ignore them, the

stronger they will become.

Take a look into the life of a small town girl who was constantly abuse by her mother and complete

strangers,she was hid away from the public by her mother in an old cellar, it was there that she first

discovered her ability to create Imaginary friends,And once the Imaginary Friends where formed she

send them all out on a revenge killing,But was it the Imaginary Friends doing the killing or her?

New Here

[ Edited ]

Hi Everyone.

I am not yet familiar with all the rules here.

I am the author of the fantasy novel KnorraSky the Deception.

I would like to let everyone know about something special I have going on.

On the knorraSky home page (not on this site) I am giving away the first three chapters of the book as an e-book.  That is the first 63 pages of the 384 page total.

I do not consider this solicitation since I am doing a give away.  If I am wrong.., Oops  Sorry!:smileyhappy:

As a new, unknown author, it is difficult to inform people about your work.  So this is one way I am doing it.

If you have any questions about the book, please ask.

Thank you.

R.A. Knowlton
