THE LITTLES, a psychological thriller, delves into the mind of a deranged serial killer as it follows the twists and turns of an FBI manhunt. Action packed and filled with suspense, THE LITTLES takes readers on a thrill ride they will not soon forget.
Readers who enjoy Iris Johansen, J.D. Robb, and Julie Garwood will like THE LITTLES.
The author was inspired by her background in psychology and a fascination with serial killers combined with her love of an impacting story heavily influenced her decision to create this series.
This fast-paced and heart-wrenching novel is also available on Nook.
With more pleasure than he’d anticipated, John ripped away the linens covering her body and simultaneously placed one hand over Kelly’s mouth and the gun barrel against her temple.
After a long moment Kelly registered the new sensations and her eyes flew open. She heard the low chuckle and smelled the noxious aroma of sweat and dried blood. The gloved hand covering her mouth and the cold metal pressed against her head caused her to freeze in fear.
“Get up.” The voice was low, but menacing. When Kelly didn’t move, he cocked the gun, letting her know she had a choice.
“Now.” He insisted.” “Raised in the foothills of the mystical Blue Ridge Mountains, I attribute my love of beautiful landscapes and fascination with all things paranormal to my environment. The settings and characters in my novels reflect my appreciation for natural beauty as well as a desire to explore the what-if’s of things unseen. Throw in a degree in Psychology paired with a strong interest in the workings of the criminally insane mind and you have a breeding ground for a psychological thriller.
Becoming an author was not a conscious decision; I’ve always been a writer. Channeling a passion for story-telling into my livelihood required a giant leap of faith, one that I’ll never regret as I truly love what I do.
When I’m not writing, I enjoy antiquing, bead-weaving and sharing time with my incredible daughter and our two spoiled-rotten cats.” “My favorite food is anything Italian; what’s not to love about cheesy pasta? Dining on lasagna while watching any of a half-dozen reality shows or listening to Adele belt out something poignant is my idea of a good time.
When I write, I do so in an office designed with lots of light, surrounded with accessories that make me smile. Stained glass lamps, crystal baubles, colored glass flowers and images of my family all encourage my creative process. As necessary as a beautiful atmosphere is, I really think that it’s the Pringles that help take my writing to a new level. Gotta have that salty snack when things get tense.

Readers who enjoyed Gone Girl and She’s Come Undone will like THE GIRL FROM LONG GUYLAND.
The author’s inspiration came from reflecting on different periods of her life and examining what she learned from them.

The author was inspired to write the AFTERLIFE series after reading the book ‘Heaven is for Real’, about a child who died, went too heaven and came back.

My hand slipped from the doorframe and I was pulled into the apartment.
For a second my right arm was free.
I pulled Sallie’s knife from its leather calf holster. The body on top of me, with the apparent instincts of a wrestler, reached for my free hand.
He gripped my wrist, but not before I cut deep into his leg.
A massive blow thundered down on my chest; his fist, in turn, smacked the side of my head.
Everything went dark. But I could hear. Hear my own death. Like prison doors slowly slamming shut in my head.

PIKE PLACE is a coming of age novel set in 1971 Seattle. Mystery surrounds the disappearance of a teenage girl while out with her family at Pike Place Market. PIKE PLACE is uniquely told through the eyes of a young ten year old, Bobbi Johnson, as she tries to help with the investigation where the police can’t.
Readers who love To Kill a Mockingbird, Stand by Me, and Angela’s Ashes will enjoy PIKE PLACE.
“Bobbi, come here,” Scottie whispered. “Look at this,” he giggled. Scottie was looking at a painting of a mermaid on the window in the front of the shop. The mermaid was buck naked and her mermaid tail was split in two. She was holding both ends of the tail with out-stretched arms. Scottie was staring right at her bare breasts. I grabbed his arm and pulled him away from the window and told him to close his eyes. “That’s disgusting,” I said, but he just grinned at me. I frowned back. “Scott Johnson. Sometimes I worry about you.” I walked over to my parents. Zev was talking to them. “How would you like to buy a pound of some of these freshly roasted coffee beans? And could I interest you in a coffee grinder, or do you two already have one at home?” Zev asked. I guess he wanted us to buy something; after all, we had just drunk eight cups of his coffee, for free. My mother looked interested, but then she noticed the price. “A dollar and seventy-five cents for a pound of coffee?” she whispered to Daddy. “I can get five pounds of Maxwell House for that on sale at Safeway!” My father put his arm around her shoulder and then smiled at the man behind the counter. “I think we’ll pass today,” my dad said politely. “This was sure good coffee, though. Thank you for the samples, Zev.” Daddy always used a person’s name when he talked to them. I liked that about him. The man just nodded his head and looked over my dad’s shoulder at the next person in line. We followed my parents out of the store, and I stole another look at the logo on the window. The name of the store was spelled out around the naked mermaid. It said ‘Starbucks’.

Favorite food: anything Middle Eastern!
FavoritePlace to write: I converted a windowed closet into a small writing room — it’s cozy and bright.
Favorite music: I grew up playing classical music (flute, piano and stand-up bass guitar), so I love to listen to that.
Favorite TV Show: It’s old, but I love the dialogue and characters (and the town) in Gilmore Girls.
THE REMORTAL is a culturally diverse urban fantasy – think Highlander meets Training Day.
Book Description: Telly is a homeless kid with not much going for him until he meets a charming and mysterious man named Van. Van reveals that he is actually an immortal, with abilities and wealth beyond Telly’s wildest dreams. Van offers Telly the chance to inherit his powers and his fortune if Telly can just do one thing: find a way to kill him.
Those who enjoy Corey Doctorow, Dean Koontz, and Interview with the Vampire will like THE REMORTAL.
Author’s Inspiration: I’ve always been intrigued by the concept of “mentorship gone bad”, and I also like exploring concepts of death and what may exist beyond death (if anything). I combined the two interests and came up with a story about the cruel tutelage of an immortal who isn’t too happy about the idea of eternal life, and who believes that the most important lessons are learned through pain.
This will be available for $2.99 on April 13th.
For much of my life, I was one of those quirky folk known as a “coder”. I wrote computer code, not stories. I was fairly successful at it, and I had a lot of fun doing it. But my true passion was writing books and stories that would inspire and ignite the light of creativity in others, just as my favorite storytellers had inspired me in my youth. I’m still in the early phases of my journey as an author, but it has been quite an adventure so far.
My favorite things include Japanese food, gadgets, comics, and cats.

JUST LIKE HEAVEN is a heart warming and sometimes tear jerking story, that follows the lives of 2 young adults fresh out of high school. From different worlds, but their lives intertwine with each other and touch those around them, finding true love in each others arms. With promises hard kept and ultimately coming to grips with the difficult decision on what is truly the most important thing in life.
The author was inspired to write JUST LIKE HEAVEN through a friend who was just like Demi. Who would play Demi in the movie version? Jessica Alba, of course.
Ever since high school had begun, Demi had faded into the background. She failed to do things which would make her stand out; wearing tight sweaters, make-up and dating boys. Instead she preferred to focus on her studies, much to her father’s delight. Even though she was now seventeen, she still had sleepovers with her best friends every other weekend. She enjoyed foreign films, sushi and had never dyed her hair. At high school, Demi had never fit in. To a guy like Arthur, a jock, she would be just another nerd.
I’m now out of my “new adult”-hood but still enjoy young adult and new adult stories. I’ve enjoyed writing ever since I could hold a pencil and with the advent of ebooks and technology I enjoy it even more. My books are full of emotion and romance, sometimes silly, sometimes tear-jerking. I’m currently working on a new adult romance series due out later this year.
My favorite food would be Italian or Thai food. Yumm.. I enjoy spending time in the library or coffee house. I really enjoy Gilmore Girls for their wit and sense of humor, but can’t get through an episode of The Simpsons without a good laugh. 🙂
BAD WAY OUT is a novel about redemption of a moonshiner set in the Tennessee mountains. Readers who enjoyed selections such as Winter’s Bone, The Silver Linings Playbook, and True Grit, will like BAD WAY OUT.
The author’s inspiration for BAD WAY OUT was his misspent youth, or well-spent youth, depending on how you look at it. He doesn’t really write with actors in mind, but he would go with Ryan Gosling as E.R. Percy.
This book will available for $1.99 on April 12.
Maiden Falls is situated at the shit end of Tennessee. It’s a hill town. More hill than town, but town nonetheless. We are cursed by the corruption of lawmakers and peacekeepers just as much as any town or hamlet or metropolis built on the trampled dirt and dreams of this fine country of ours. We’ve got high unemployment, near nonexistent economic prospects, and endless misery. The one thing we ain’t got is falls. Never did, as far as anyone can tell, and no one knows nor cares how the name came to be.
C HOYT CALDWELL
C. Hoyt Caldwell is a writer with an aggravating affinity for the South, and the people it creates. The characters in his stories are loosely based on folks that both inspired and troubled him growing up in a tiny Tennessee town. He’s not smart enough to be subtle, so his work tends to be tasteless and gritty. He’s not out to offend anyone, but he’s also not out to win anyone over either. His stories are full of sex, violence, heart, and attempts at humor.
His favorite food is pizza. Hoyt loves to write in his cluttered office. The Avett Brothers and Punch Brothers are on a constant loop. He feel like there’s nothing better than Breaking Bad on television.
PROMISE COVE is a tender story of love and redemption. It takes place on the idyllic central coast of California. The characters spring to life in this well drawn and believable tale.
PROMISE COVE is an uplifting read that readers of Nora Roberts, Nicholas Sparks, and Debbie Macomber will enjoy.
This novel is available for $2.99 on April 12.
Nick came awake, trembling. Sweat beaded on his body. He ran a shaky hand over his face before glancing at the clock by the bed. Three-fifteen a.m. He’d gotten less than four hours sleep. Insomnia was proving to be a bitch. Living with the dream was even worse. Every night to be taken back in time to that day, as if watching the same scene play out, burned in his brain, he had to relive it over and over again.
I like to write about everyday people, putting them in difficult, real life situations, and have them rise to the occasion using their wits and strong will to overcome the obstacles to bring down their foe. And I especially like to give my readers a resolution and a happy ending.
