    99 Cent Nookbooks - Authors Please Promote Your Novels Here

      Hello Authors and Readers,

       

      My name is Charles Shea. I'm a self published author and I'm starting this discussion in an effort to bring readers and authors together. Authors, please join me in posting your novels here. Readers, I hope you'll enjoy discovering these inexpensive novels.

       

      I'd like to introduce my Legal/Thrillers:

       

      The Shrunken Head Murders  

       

      Insanity – noun:  A defect of reason as a result of mental illness, such that a defendant does not know what he or she is doing or that it is wrong.

       

      Amy Strong is a young Criminal Defense Attorney and it’s her job to convince a jury that her client was temporarily insane when he committed murder. If she knew what would happen to her after the trial, she never would have taken the case.

       

      In the Amazon, the sewing of the lips of a shrunken head traps the spirit of the warrior. In Atlanta, the sewing of a murdered Criminal Defense Attorney’s lips is symbolic of a mouth that has been silenced for eternity. Trial lawyers make a living with their mouths…a serial killer is enforcing the ultimate Cease and Desist Order. Detective Tom Brikler must hunt down and stop the Shrunken Head Killer before another attorney is brutally murdered and mutilated.

       

      Defending Evil 

       

      Have you ever wondered how a trial lawyer can sleep at night after helping a client he/she knows is guilty, beat the legal system? I have. Have you ever wondered how an attorney would feel if that same recently acquitted client kills a second time? Again, I have, and these very questions prompted me to write a dark mystery/thriller about just such an attorney…I call it DEFENDING EVIL.

      Travis Knight is an extraordinary Criminal Defense Attorney winning high profile cases in Atlanta. One of his recently acquitted clients kills again, which has Travis and his wife Julie, questioning what he does for a living. Travis is shaken to his core, but being a consummate lawyer, he is able to move past his feelings of guilt; Julie isn’t.

      In a bizarre twist, a mysterious vigilante begins executing Travis’ clients after he wins them an acquittal. This righteous vigilante decides that the clients Travis is helping to put back into society are guilty, and don't deserve to live--the vigilante delivers ultimate justice.
       

      I hope you’ll take a look at my novels.

          Your books sound interesting.  Do you have a legal background or just a strong interest?

            One of my three suspense novels is currently priced at .99 cents. The title is Suspicions

             

            What it's about: When a neighbor boy is kidnapped for ransom, Stacey Hunter is stunned to discover that circumstantial evidence points to her husband. Not able to believe he could be involved in such a horrifying crime, she sets out to discover who is really behind the kidnapping.

            Complicating Stacey’s efforts is the odd behavior of her supervisor, Patricia Summers, who has taken a keen interest in Stacey’s husband. Though uncertain of her husband’s faithfulness, Stacey presses on with her investigation to flush out the kidnapper and is faced with losing everything she loves, as well as her own life.

                Wizard Heights Book 1 The Vengeance of the Wraith King 

                 

                "Just a few miles from a normal neighborhood there lies a place that you can only imagine in your most magical dreams..."

                When Charlie Goodfellow's family moves to a new neighborhood, the last thing the eleven year old is looking for is adventure. But one day when he is exploring a secluded, hilltop retirement community called Wizard Heights, he finds it.

                Up there, old folks glide about in flying recliners, and sip tea to the dulcet tones of string quartets on moonlit nights. But there are more sinister forces at work, too.

                A strange, pale boy called Whitstable befriends Charlie. After Whitstable tells Charlie about a sinister plot involving his cryogenically frozen wizard grandfather and a mysterious Egyptian Idol of Thebes, Charlie is plunged headlong into an adventure that will take him deep beneath the cobwebby catacombs of the retirement community, and into the palaces of the eclectic luminaries of Wizard Heights.

                The story gallops along at an unstoppable pace, taking many fascinating twists and turns along the way. Wonderful characters are to be found here—action, adventure, magic, and mystery too.

                  The Mysterious Case of Doctor Octavius Plum's Incredible Ever After Machine

                   

                  When British children, Jennifer and Timothy Goodhew visit their grandfather on the isle of St. Mary's, they are surprised to find him missing. In his place they find a wily, old pirate captain, who has taken control of their grandfather's manor and its servants.

                  The captain puts the children to work—Timothy in the tumbledown graveyard at the end of the garden, and Jennifer within the manor itself. Naturally, the children are concerned about their missing grandfather and begin to investigate his disappearance.

                  In the course of their investigations, they discover that the garden surrounding the manor has become wildly overgrown. Furthermore, they are told that entrance to their grandfather's laboratory is strictly forbidden. Undaunted, the children continue their investigations, and in so doing, discover a remarkable secret and a diabolical plot that will change their lives forever.

                  This novel will, in turn, warm your heart and send chills down your spine. It leads the reader on an unforgettable journey through an eerie manor, an overgrown garden, a tumbledown graveyard, and to a gripping conclusion. An adventure story and a mystery, it is a page-turner through and through—one that is enjoyed by children (ages 9 and up) and adults alike.

And they will start murdering these women—one every twenty-four hours—unless Shell meets their demands. Just one demand, actually: kill Roger Coke. However, killing Coke, a brutal gun and drug trafficker, is no easy task. Making the job even more difficult is the sudden presence of Coke's girlfriend, a stunning beauty in desperate need of a savior. But why must her greatest moment of need come just as Shell is set to make his kill?

                        Thank you for the opportunity!  My novel Black Diamond Death is .99 right now on the Nook.  Here's some information about it :smileyhappy:

                         

                        "IN A PANIC I GASPED FOR AIR, BUT THERE WASN'T ANY. I TRIED TO CRY OUT, BUT I WAS ALONE, AND IN MY HYSTERIA IT HIT ME. I HAD FELT A SIMILAR FEELING BEFORE--LIKE MY BODY WAS GIVING OUT ON ME, AND I KNEW WHAT IT MEANT. I WAS DYING."

                        Enter the world of Sloane Monroe in Black Diamond Death...

                        A SKIER CRASHES

                        On the slopes of Park City, Utah's newest ski resort a woman is found dead. At first glance, it has all the makings of an accident. The victim, Charlotte Halliwell, collided with a tree as she schussed her way to the bottom of the hill. But what if her death wasn't an accident at all--what if she was murdered?

                        A SISTER IS ON A MISSION

                        In Black Diamond Death, Audrey Halliwell faces a problem: finding someone who believes her story.

                        Enter Private Investigator Sloane Monroe.

                        When Audrey marches into Sloane's office with claims her sister's death was no accident Sloane is skeptical at first, but agrees to take the case. With little to go on, she questions the people in Charlotte's life and discovers Parker Stanton, a jilted ex-fiancé with plenty to hide, and as the son of a prominent businessman, he will go to any lengths to protect his secrets.

                        A SECOND BODY IS FOUND

                        Just as Sloane feels she's close to solving the case she stumbles on another dead body and is forced to re-examine the clues from the beginning, but she must tread lightly. With the killer aware that Sloane will stop at nothing to find him, her life is in danger and her every move is being tracked. Will Sloane uncover the truth before he strikes again?

                                Possum Dance  

                                By Maddie Broome

                                 

                                 

                                Contemporary Romance / Quirky Romance

                                 

                                 

                                When you believe in the impossible, wonderful things can happen.  (And okay, so sometimes something weird happens instead.  Whatever.)

                                 

                                After reviving the fortunes of her hometown of Possum Dance, Texas – thanks in large part to an ALF wannabe named Bubba spotted roaming the local Piney Woods – Riley Dare has it made. She owns and operates her own store specializing in the weird and wonderful – Alien Autopsy videos, Bigfoot slippers, and plush Bubbas included. She's a respected member of her community. She's even become something of a local media darling. And okay, so the highlight of her love life in recent days was the blind date with a guy who was expecting his date to be a guy. Still, life is good. If somewhat safe and predictable. And maybe a little boring. Or possibly even a lot.

                                 

                                Enter then Bren Reynolds, a former high school nemesis who'd spent the four months of their shared senior year looking down his nose at the local hicks from the sticks, holding illicit keg parties at the mayor's house, and coming up with new and better ways to convince Riley he was a jerk. The bad news then gets worse – he's Riley's blind date for the local Bubba Festival. And not only does he not remember her, he thinks she's weird – and not particularly wonderful.

                                All, however, is not lost. A near-riot, a close encounter with a Conspiracy Nut, a dancing Tribble, and a few dozen cookies later, the weird proves to be more than a little wonderful.

                                  Slice of Life/Family Life/911 Dispatch

                                  Chris Allen, a 911 Dispatcher and part-time online columnist, is about to have a busy twelve days. For starters, there’s that pesky 911 call he took that’s probably going to send him to court. On the upside, though, Chris gets to meet the cute new receptionist at the Sheriff’s office. A hint of romance may cheer things up, that is, if his ex doesn’t keep hanging around and playing her usual mind games.


                                  And it's only $0.99.

                                      Hi there,

                                       

                                      Ancient Awakening, the first in "The Ancient Series" is still on sale for 99 cents.  Here's the pitch:

                                       

                                      Hell comes home to Jersey.
                                      Seven ancient demons known as the Fallen have awakened in New Jersey after a hundred years. Fortunately for Mike and Ann, so has the one man who can stop them, Joseph Miller. Trapped in a hospital filled with mythical monsters, only together can they unravel the mystery of the Cursed and escape with not only their lives but their very humanity.

                                      Ancient Awakening is a Horror/Action novel with just the right touch of comedy. It is the first book in the series "The Ancient" which follows the adventures of eccentric demon hunter Joseph Miller. His job is to defend the human race against seven mythical demons and their offspring. Unfortunately for us, he has been dead for the last hundred years.

                                      After the Snowfall  My thriller novel After the Snowfall is on sale for 99 cents all summer long.

                                       

                                      It's the story of a small town in Illinois buried beneath feet of snow in a blizzard.  The next morning, three men, dressed in black, are seen heading down the middle of the road and into town.  They bring fear to everyone who sees them.  It is a day the town of Darrick, Illinois, will never forget.

                                       

                                      I wrote this novel, originally, as part of NaNoWriMo in 2008.  I wrote it in 20 days, the fastest I have ever written a novel.  For some reason, not long after, I sank into a weird depression.  I think I actually exhausted myself writing it.  Anyway, I got help, the book was published and it has a special place in my heart. 

                                       

                                      I hope you enjoy it.

                                        Hello Readers,

                                         

                                        I’d like to suggest the following Noir and Dark Crime Thriller:

                                         

                                        THE SHRUNKEN HEAD MURDERS – One in five war veterans suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Former Marine Lieutenant Donny Snelling came home from Afghanistan without any wounds you could see…but he was severely damaged. The horror of watching helplessly as two of his men died a slow, ghastly death in Kandahar was too much for him.  He’s not the same man anymore and he’s doing things the “healthy” Donny would never have done. Should a returning veteran be able to get away with murder because he suffers from PTSD? Donny’s murder trial will answer this very question. Amy Strong, his attorney, must convince a jury her client was temporarily insane at the time of the murder.

                                         

                                        At the conclusion of every murder trial there is only one winner…either justice or injustice, but there can be many losers. This cast of losers includes family members, lovers, friends, attorneys, and law enforcement officers. This is a story about a very angry loser seeking sweet revenge. In the Amazon jungle, sewing the mouth closed of a shrunken head traps the spirit of the fallen warrior. In Atlanta, sewing the mouth closed of a murdered Criminal Defense Attorney is symbolic of a mouth that has been silenced for eternity. Trial lawyers make a living with their mouths…a demented serial killer is enforcing the ultimate Cease and Desist Order. This macabre story follows Detective Tom Brikler with the Atlanta Homicide Unit as he races to hunt down and stop the savage killer before another lawyer is brutally murdered and mutilated.

                                         

                                        The Shrunken Head Murders is available for only 99 cents.

                                          Mudflat is a neighborhood where old magic lives, and as it goes through the generations, it weakens, so that now stronger and sometimes wickeder magic is attracted. At the center of the urban fantasy Mudflat series is Claire Carmody, an average young woman working two jobs to pay the bills. And for friends, she occasionally draws horoscope charts and gives advice that people seldom follow.

                                          There are now five novels, and a sixth one should be ready someday. The Mudflat series novels are priced a bit higher by the publisher, nothing I control.

                                           

                                          However, over the past couple of years I have written short stories set in Mudflat and most of these have been published in magazines or anthologies. I have collected 9 of them into a book titled Nine Horoscope in Catsup stories and priced the book at 99 cents to give readers a chance to visit Mudflat and meet the neighbors. - Phoebe Matthews

                                              Earlier I listed Demonspell and Rudy as 99 centers, which they were, but the prices have now gone to $2.99. Sorry. However I do have a new anthology that is 99 cents now as a Summer Promo. I don't know when the business manager will change the price. Probably in August. Anyway,it is the second in the Wicked Good series and includes the title story plus tales of time travel, a trebuchel, a prince of clockword pigeons, and more. The first Wicked Good anthology, Nine Horoscope-in-Catsup Stories, had a 99 cent promo and is now $2.99.

                                              Not Magic Enough  - One reviewer said - If the cover of the book doesn't grab your attention, the first lines will. Valerie Douglas writes a beautiful, moving story that crosses the boundaries of race (Elf and human) and time. Love conquers all in her world and it is a beautiful sight to behold. Very well written, her attention to detail draws you into the world she's created...

                                                Yea! I finally figured out how to get here. A couple days ago I posted through a friend's site and now I have my own site. Hmm. Okay, about that 99 cent book. And me. Usually I write urban fantasy, but occasionally I do historicial romance and that took me to a cluster of stories set in Chicago in the 1890s. They didn't want to be one humongous novel. They wanted to be separate, a sort of Coronation Street saga of a household, and so I decided to write them as a novella trilogy. The first novella is done and available and features Rudy, a young man who knew Marshall Field's motto, "Give the Lady what she wants!" Field had shouted it at a sales clerk and it quickly became famous. Rudy applied it to his personal search for love and the result is the novella. - Phoebe

                                                  I would like to take this opportunity to tell you about my novel The Hambledown Dream which is available both in print and Nookbook from B&N.

                                                   

                                                  The Hambledown Dream is a contemporary fiction novel featuring elements of reincarnation, redemption and a search for a lost love.

                                                   

                                                  Australian, Denny Banister had the world at his feet; a successful career, a passion for the guitar and he is in love with Sonya – his best friend and soul mate. Tragically, Denny is struck down with inoperable cancer & he is destined to die.

                                                  Meanwhile, Andy DeVries has almost nothing; he is alienated from his family, he moves through a dangerous Chicago underworld dealing in drugs, battling addiction & now he’s gone and overdosed - jeopardizing the only thing that matters to him; a place at a prestigious Conservatory for classical guitar.

                                                  Having been snatched from the abyss Andy recovers, but he is plagued by dreams - memories of a love he has never felt, and a life he's never lived. Driven by the need for redemption and by the love for a woman he's never met, Andy begins a quest to find her, knowing her only by the memories of a stranger and the dreams of a place called Hambledown...

                                                  Whilst not specifically 99cents, The Hambledown Dream is a lovingly crafted novel featuring richly drawn characters and settings that I am confident will draw you in.

                                                    "Two guys, one girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart.

                                                    Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her.

                                                    She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life.

                                                    Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too.

                                                    But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything... "

                                                     

                                                    Excerpt:

                                                     

                                                    It was a relief to get out of the crowded house and into the night air. The loud music was still pounding in my brain, although it was much less audible once we were out of the house.
                                                    I followed Van to a shed in the back yard, and he opened the door.

                                                    “Hey, there you are!” Van said to someone inside.

                                                    “Hey, man,” answered the voice.

                                                    The voice was low and quiet, and it had a melancholy edge to it that almost saddened me.

                                                    “Kai, let me introduce you to Alice,” Van said, stepping aside. “Alice Wright, this is my cousin Kai Walker.”

                                                    I started to mention the fact that his name sounded like Skywalker without the “S”, but I didn’t want to let anyone know how much of a Star Wars nerd I really was. I got the idea that “nerds” were a group that was often ostracized.

                                                    I peeked into the shed, and there stood a sight that took my breath away. Kai was tall and thin, but his muscles were well defined. He wore a dark gray shirt that clung tightly to his frame, and it was tucked into black jeans. He wore black strappy boots, but splotches of paint in different colors dotted the toes. He had crystal blue eyes and long, striking rich burgundy hair. He was intensely beautiful. I never imagined any human could be so attractive.

                                                    Kai paused with a paint brush in one hand and a palette in the other, and he eyed me suspiciously.

                                                    “Hello, Alice,” he finally said.

                                                    “N-nice to meet you,” I replied, fumbling for words like an idiot.

                                                    He turned his head to the side, looking at me like a puppy with its head cocked to the side as if he were trying to understand me. His crimson hair fell over his shoulder, and I noticed his eyes were piercing into me as he attempted to size me up. I noticed his eyes fall downward from my face, eying the whole length of my body and back up.

                                                    “Hmm,” he said.

                                                    I wasn’t sure what that meant. His face gave me no clue. It was completely expressionless and dull. He stared at me for a moment, then he turned his attention back to his painting. I wanted to see what he was painting, but the easel was facing away from the door.

                                                    I stood there awkwardly for a few moments, and then I started to leave to go back into the house. It seemed obvious he had no interest in talking to me, and I saw no reason to keep standing there like an idiot.

                                                    “Hey, Van!” shouted Zach from the back door. “Dave brought a keg!”

                                                    “Come on,” Van said, slapping me lightly on the arm with the back of his hand.

                                                    I started to follow him, when I heard my name.

                                                    “Alice,” Kai called.

                                                    I paused. I was extremely uncomfortable in the huge crowd of people inside the house, but I also wasn’t sure if I wanted to be around Kai. The way he had looked at me… I wasn’t sure what he was thinking. That made me nervous.

                                                    “I’ll be inside,” Van said, heading back to the party.

                                                    Anxiously, I turned around to face Kai. The golden light of the lamp inside the shed cast a glow onto the grass. It was almost inviting me in – like a red carpet rolled out for me. I took a step toward the door, but I did not enter.

                                                     

                                                    “Come in,” Kai said softly. “Close the door.”

                                                    With some trepidation, I stepped up into the shed and closed the door behind me. I turned back toward Kai, who once again seemed lost in concentration as he painted. He said nothing.

                                                    After several long moments of silence, I was just about to frantically burst out of the shed to escape the awkward situation. Finally, Kai looked at me and spoke.

                                                          Contemporary Romance - 165,000 words - .99 Nook book

                                                           

                                                          Hired by newspaper owner Laura Danilov to run a project aimed at reintroducing wolves into the wilds of Montana, Drew Allison has had little success signing on local ranchers to her cause. Instead, the ranch where she’s headquartered has suffered a string of malicious pranks she suspects is aimed at shutting her project down. When Mackenzie Sawyer falls out of a tree and into a job taking care of the ranch, Drew thinks her luck has changed for the better.

                                                          Things soon go from bad to worse, however, and Drew realizes nothing is as it seems – especially Mackenzie Sawyer.

                                                          When her quest for answers turns up a most unexpected one, she isn’t sure what to believe. She must then decide whether to listen to reason or to follow her heart as she attempts to discover what lies the heart tells and why.

                                                            Serena Murphy was losing her mind. 


                                                            Every night Serena stood on the deck of O'Flanagans Tavern, searching Maine's rugged coast for a sign of her husband's body. Though he was pronounced lost at sea, Alan Murphy still haunted her as only his malevolent spirit could. In the loft above her tavern, Serena hears footsteps pace across her living room floor, yet when she turns, no one is there. 

                                                            Alan would not let a little thing like death stop him from tormenting her. If she could just find his body, surely this torture would stop.

Now Brett was in Victory Cove, not to declare his feelings for Serena, but to discover the truth about his brother's death. In doing so, he must battle Serena's ghosts, both real and contrived.

                                                                        I really enjoyed Pam Richter's "The Living Image" and pretty much devoured it! It was fun, fast-paced,smart, and it was funny.

                                                                        A kindly, brilliant scientist develops a supercomputer that to implant into into a human.

                                                                        What ensues involves the CIA, the KGB, a Japanese ego-maniacal mogul, the Yakusa - all looking for this stunning, superhuman and her look-alike. They are identical, but one gulps pancake syrup, likes Creme de Menthe w/soda, & enjoys crunching roast bones. One of them bites when angry. The other is a smart, part-time model, a full-time fashion designer, and boutique owner.

                                                                        Did I mention the KGB agent is smokin'? So is the investigative reporter. So, there is romance: both sweet and sexy.

Recruited by the enigmatic director of the Museum of Art and Antiquities, Mitch is sent to Guatemala, the last location the shipment was tracked to. Acting as the museum staff photographer, Mitch joins a group of archaeologists. His goal is to locate the artifacts as swiftly as possible so that he can collect his compensation and get the hell out of the jungle.

                                                                                  Alexandra Langley is about to run out of funds.

To achieve her grant, she will accept the museum's latest nuisance, Mitch Hasslet, and any other obstacle that is sent her way.

                                                                                  As Mitch and Alex discover romance, will their bond protect them in a jungle filled with deceit?

                                                                                       Chuck had gone ahead to check the trail one last time. It was almost a relief to have him out of her hair. Between him and Wes, their disapproval of her intended destination was stifling. It wasn’t as if she was crossing that barrier—that unseen line where people had gone missing over the past few years. No, they would be a good forty miles from the sector labeled No Man’s Land on Chuck’s map. 

                                                                                      Alex would never jeopardize the safety of her crew, particularly considering most were college students, too young to know any better on their own. Maybe she was barely ten years older than most of them, but it might as well have been a lifetime. Youth was something that fascinated her, but she felt a strange disassociation with it. 

                                                                                      Again Alex’s gaze returned to the photographer. He swiped a hand through hair made darker by perspiration. The hair was nice to look at, but her focus was on that hand. Big and scarred with nicks. A man’s hand. 

                                                                                      That rogue thought spurred Alex to slam down the trunk of the Jeep. The sound drew the photographer’s attention her way and she met his eyes. 

                                                                                      Midnight blue. 

                                                                                      They reminded her of the ponds that provided sanctuary from the rigors of this dig. Cloistered by palm fronds, those small bodies of stagnant water discharged curls of steam on sultry mornings. Each pond was a temple to her. Each a retreat.

                                                                                      Well, she couldn’t say that was true.

The good news is that each of them has found the man of her dreams, unfortunately this is not news easily broken to their traditional mother.  Further complicating their lives, they find themselves in the middle of a serial murder investigation; worse still, Cara may have come to the attention of the murderer.   With their lives spinning slightly out of control, some of it good, some of it not, Cara and Teagan depend on each other, humor, their family, and their not so common sense, to keep them going.

The serial murderer, if there is one, is still out there. The new guys are supportive, as is the family, but there is a limit to how involved Cara and Teagan want the people they love most to be.  Knowing there is a serial murderer in your sphere of influence is disorienting.  What you do has consequences, but that doesn't mean you see them in advance.  The crazy cop is around more than ever.  There is a wedding to be planned and although Cara has always been the organizer of the family, she's not even kept in the loop.  Life has been spinning out of control for some time and now it's up to Cara and Teagan to put it to rights.

What he doesn't know, is if the current timeline can change when something is changed in the past. The US government wants him to find out. The theme being to make right what once went wrong.

                                                                                                      Hawking's invention only works with a spaceship, so one is renamed the USS Albert Einstein, and he goes on time travel adventures with military members assigned to the ship. They go back to Wounded Knee in 1890, the Titanic in 1912, Anne Frank and her family in 1940, President Kennedy in 1963, and various NASA spacecraft from 1970 to 1986.

It's a sweet little tale about loss and acceptance.

And even ones not quite so normal, like Bartholomew or Ambrosia. They also have the most interesting tales behind their deaths. But one particular death guide has a few problems: she cannot remember her name or the details of her demise, and thus has no story of her own. One fateful night, she meets a young girl that may change her death forever.

                                                                                                                          Inspired by the works of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman, and in the style of Children's tales of old, The Death of Death is a tragic, yet sweet little tale about loss and acceptance.

The author uses a poetic prose as he pulls you into not only the story, but also the characters. Written against the backdrop of death this story (ironically) is full of magic. Opposites of life and death come together, giving context to the full spectrum of the human condition. This story touched me in many ways, and I am so glad that I stumbled upon it."

Very well thought-out. In fact, the story has an essence of Tim Burton-esque, in the terms of creating beauty from tragedy, that sets the tone from the onset and is one of my favorite aspects. The whimsy and tragedy combined were carefully written with a beautiful plot that succeeds in building a sort of suspense throughout the story. The characters were well written, thoughtful and eccentric..."

Instead of a right hand made of flesh and blood, she was born with a hand made of ethereal energy.

                                                                                                                                            How does Olivia handle being the girl with the ghost hand? Well, she's a little bit morbid and a whole lot snarky. 

                                                                                                                                            Her mother thinks her obsession with death, black clothing, and the local cemetery is a bid for attention. But when Marcus, the new guy in Olivia's calculus class, stares at her like she's a freak, Olivia doesn't like it. And when her hand goes rogue, doing things she never imagined possible, Olivia finds herself running for her life with Marcus from a group of men bent on taking the power of her hand for their own nefarious purposes.

                                                                                                                                              Seattle defense attorney, Mac Brodie, has a beautiful wife, two young children, and lives in tony Mercer Island on Lake Washington. He made a fortune back east so now has the luxury of picking his clients by their need, not their paycheck. His wife wants Mac to use his looks and charm to run for congress, but he loves what he does and with whom he does it. His investigator, Seth Ivarsson is a 6’7” pony-tailed behemoth ex-cop who lives on a houseboat, and describes himself as more loyal than moral. The third and last member of Brodie’s team is a thirty year-old legal assistant, Brooke Fletcher who’s in her third year of law school. Though immensely attracted to her, Mac values his family too much to mess around – and she doesn’t seem interested.

                                                                                                                                              Mac’s latest client, Earl Richards, is on death row and guilty as sin. But Mac doesn’t believe in the death penalty and will do whatever it takes to get the sentence commuted. Little could he predict the nightmare that leaves everyone he loves in imminent danger and his life forever changed.

                                                                                                                                              New England is known for its history but someone is willing to do whatever it takes to keep a part of it buried forever. From the streets of Boston to the underworld of Providence to the lakes of New Hampshire, Deadly Favors is a taut legal thriller ripped from today's headlines of racism and the modern growing threat of the super rich with frightening agendas.

                                                                                                                                              It’s the eve of the 2012 election. Super Storm Sandy is ready to blast the northeast. Seattle Defense Attorney Mac Brodie and his investigator Seth Ivarsson travel to Boston to look into the racially charged thirty-year-old murder of a white coed. Meanwhile new law partner Brooke Fletcher, minding the shop back in Seattle, finds herself immersed in her own case involving a missing juvenile and the juvenile who may have murdered him.

                                                                                                                                              When strange things start happening on the streets and subways of Boston, Mac is unconcerned but Seth is sure that the events have something to do with the case. After an evening of festivity, the unthinkable happens and blaming themselves, the survivors seek solace in revenge. With Sandy about to hit, an unlikely pair teams up to try to save one of their own, but as the night wears on, they find themselves in the eye of an entirely different kind of storm that promises untold devastation.

When Michelle is betrayed by her very own son, this already fractured family will be damaged in an almost unimaginable way. Can they find forgiveness in the midst of so much sorrow and guilt, or will love give them the strength that they need to let it be?
