TRAGIC LOVE by Tammy Rockett Box and Mary Rockett[www.publishamerica.net]
My mother and I began investigating the tragic and untimely death of my son in 2008. We were frustrated and unsatisfied with the investigation of local authorities after they overlooked critical information and quickly ruled the death a suicide. Tragic Love was a book collaborated by Tammy and Mary Rockett, it is an electrifying story of a young man who becomes involved in a forbidden love affair only to find himself in an abusive situation and he eventually succumbs to his untimely and tragic death. This is a dramatic story that we'd like to share with others.
Prologue to Tragic Love
I’m lost,” I said. “Where are you, I will find you, just stay put,” my
husband calmly said from his cell phone. I was almost frantic now.
I realized that I had never been to my son and his girlfriend’s new
apartment. How many times since they had moved out had Tim asked
me to come see their new place, and how many times did I respond by
saying, “I’ll come over one of these days.” Now it was too late! The man
on the phone said my son had shot himself. Surely this was a sick joke,
a mistake of some kind because my son was not dead. Yet, deep down
I knew something awful had happened.
I called my husband back on his cell phone to tell him where I was.
“Where is Tim,” I asked? He didn’t say anything, but not realizing that
I was still holding on the line, I heard him ask the coroner “is he gone?”
“Yes, the coroner said, your son is dead.”

Okay, the wrong cover is loaded for my book...no, I don't know why. I'm told it will be fixed shortly, but for now, if you download my latest release,
Executive Lunch you will actually own what, in the bygone printed books era, would be a collectible!!!
Here's the story:
Sedona is given the opportunity of a lifetime: play an up-and-coming executive with all the trappings of wealth with someone else footing the bill. The catch: find out who is stealing company funds before the criminals find out that their program is being debugged.
Sedona runs into danger, the corporate glass ceiling, and an occasional chance at romance in her quest to figure out who is stealing money from Strandfrost. Unfortunately, Sedona is better at writing computer code than deciphering political vitriol, and if she doesn’t find a way to wade through the red tape and red herrings, she could lose both her job and her quarry!

My name is Alan Hutcheson and my book is called Boomerang. It is a comic novel of international intrigue played out by characters operating way outside their comfort zones.
Ted Hogwood's beloved Sarah, a jazz guitar, is in the window of Topp Dollar Pawn. The only way he can get the money to rescue her is to accept an assignment from the AABC, a not nearly official branch of the United States intelligence community. He is partnered with Jerry Kwiatkowski, master of the Hammond B-3 organ and chronic flatulence sufferer, to steal a boomerang containing secrets that should have died with J. Edgar Hoover over thirty years ago. It would be a simple job if only they knew what they were doing. And if a crossbow wielding assassin, two unemployed Australian women, The Director of Central Intelligence and a clothing optional former onion festival queen were not also hot on the boomerang's trail.
And here is what one reviewer on Smashwords has to say about Boomerang:
Loved this book! Hutcheson does a great job creating a host of wacky characters all after the same object. I really enjoyed seeing all of the different plot lines and watching them all converge. I will definitely be recommending this one!

Thanks for the opportunity. I just released my debut novel is called The Bum Magnet. It's a romantic comedy--laugh out loud funny.
Real estate agent Charisse Tyson seems to have it all-a great job, a dream car, and a McMansion in high-and-mightyville. Everything in her life is just right...except the Mister. While lamenting the break-up with her most recent "the one" during a holiday meltdown, Charisse realizes she has a type when it comes to men-players, players, and more players. A magazine article motivates her to swear off men and examine the complex roots of her romantic fiascos.
Just five simple steps to turn her life to the stuff of legends, right? Life is never that easy...
Charisse commences her do-it-yourself therapy project and barely cracks open her emotional toolbox when she encounters the monkey wrenches: an irresistible new beau, two persistent ex-flames, and an FBI agent with life-altering secrets threatening to turn her world upside-down.
A tug of war ensues and Charisse is dead center, trying her best to distinguish the Don Juans from the Romeos. As her love life is propelled into unpredictable twists not even she could imagine, will a twenty-seven-year-old secret keep Charisse from finding the right "one"?
Laugh loud and often as Charisse discovers whether her choices in men reflect more than a penchant for good looks, great sex, and bad judgment.
