Sitting with cell phone in hand, I breathed a sigh of relief when the door of the Pinto opened; the crazy driver must be okay since he was climbing out. I watched with open-mouthed, wide-eyed shock as Joseph got out of the car, clearly drunk. He weaved back and forth, hunched over, threw up several times, stood up, looked around, and stumbled off. I wondered whose car he’d been driving. His last two or three cars had been impounded, and the court had revoked his driver’s license months ago.

Favorite Place to Write: The joy of a laptop means I can write wherever I am and it’s the process of writing I enjoy, so it doesn’t matter where I am.

Favorite Music: When listening to music, I prefer bands such as Korn and Rammstein, but I will listen to anything. When running, I listen to lots of dance music to keep me motivated.

Favorite TV Show: My favourite TV show is probably Dexter.

CARMEN DESOUSA

As an avid reader, I’ll read about anything I can get my hands on, but I love romantic-suspense novels. The only problem was I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted. I yearned for stories filled with a fifty/fifty split of romance and mystery. I craved meaning and purpose and for the writer to sweep me off my feet without trying to shock me with graphic or violent scenes. Since it was becoming more difficult to find the perfect tale, I decided to write it. Three years later, I have two bestselling romantic-suspense novels and two bestselling short stories. And now I’m addicted to writing as much as I am reading. I have enough stories in my head to fill a small bookstore, so I hope to continue sharing them with all my avid-reader friends who enjoy reading stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

Favorite Food: Blueberry muffins and Pizza, though, not at the same time.

Favorite Place to Write: I have a home office that looks out over my Florida backyard, while not large, I love watch the pool water as it reflects off the ceiling.

Favorite Music: Pandora is almost always tuned to my favorite station, Yiruma, modern-day piano.

As an author, I don’t follow trends. All my work is my own and never created off another author/authors work. To compare it would be’ to compare apples to oranges’.

I love to read as much as I love to write. I rarely watch TV, but my favorite movies are anything Julia Roberts or Susan Sarandon in them and of course, Johnny Depp or Leonardo Decaprio Titanic is an absolute favorite.

This is available for $0.99 on May 1 on Kindle and Nook.

EXCERPT:

 A man’s arm steadied her. She turned and faced his neck and tailored shirt. A whiff of magnetic danger, woodsy with a hint of spice, drew her gaze up. The corners of the CEO’s panther grey eyes wrinkled. A jolt of panicked adrenaline shot through Jen. What if he recognized her? Jen’s cheeks simmered. “I, uh, have work to do. My backpack…” She reached for it, but he grabbed it and held it behind his back. “You just checked a minute ago. It’s okay to have fun with your family. I’m not that much of a slave driver, am I?”


RACHELLE AYALA

Rachelle lives with her husband in California. She has a nonstop imagination and loves drama. While her real life is calm and satisfying, she puts her characters through pain and torture while dangling the promise of a love so rich it is worth risking all for. “I love challenging plots and crossing boundaries. You’ll find characters striving for victory while overcoming physical and emotional obstacles. I sprinkle humor here and there, and of course there is romance and the sweet hope of forgiveness and love ever after.”

Favorite Food: I love all kinds of food and mix it all up in my cooking: soy sauce with chili powder, lemon grass and oregano, ketchup and fish sauce, turmeric and sage. So you might just call it international or fusion creative cuisine.

Favorite Music:  I don’t usually listen to music, but my tastes range from classical violin to salsa to bluegrass to Bollywood to rap and hip hop. My playlists are similarly fused from around the world. I think it all goes back to living in the International Living Center while in college. I’ve lived within multi-ethnic communities all my live and delight in sharing the food, traditions, music and emotions of the people around me.

This Mystery Will Keep You Awake With The Light On For Less Than $1 – May 1

Within the landscape of a quiet, sleepy village in Ontario, Canada, the murder of the school caretaker horrifies the townspeople. For Emily Taylor, the principal, her discovery of the body and the violence of Nathaniel’s death bring back memories of a time and place that she would rather forget. 

THE BRIDGEMAN is a mystery that combines both intriguing story lines and twists and turns that aren’t expected with amazing characters and subplots that keep you hooked. Readers of The Ice House, A Taste for Death, and Kiss the Girls will enjoy THE BRIDGEMAN. 

The author’s fascination with very ordinary-appearing people who are able to hide a monstrous evil within was the inspiration for THE BRIDGEMAN. Gwyneth Paltrow would make a good Emily.

This is available for $0.99 for Kindle on May 1.

EXCERPT:

Discovering a dead body in the basement of a small school in the midst of a quiet village is not something anyone would expect, but that’s exactly what happened to me. Not that most people ever envision finding a dead body at all. But I, Emily Taylor, was not exactly most people. This sleepy little town was our haven, our sanctuary, to which my husband and I had escaped from a notorious, tragic past. Not to mention, I was the school principal.


CATHERINE ASTOLFO

I have been writing since I was seven. Really (fair tales). I love books that are challenging (smart), with lots of twists and turns, have great characters and settings, and which explore the human condition. So that’s what I write! My books are not classic mysteries – they’re more focused on character and setting than usual – but I can promise they are page-turners nonetheless. Once a reader gets involved in an Emily Taylor Mystery, they don’t want to put the book down.

Favorite Food : My favourite food could probably include everything but liver – however, I have a weakness for pasta and carrot cake.

Favorite Music: My musical tastes are eclectic too, though I haven’t listened very seriously to any songs written since 2000.

Favorite TV Show: My absolute all-time favourite TV show is Dexter. (Now that last one is very revealing!)

From bestselling mystery author, David Bishop, comes THE BEHOLDER, the beginning of a new mystery series. Maddie Richards is a capable homicide detective who wishes she could handle her messy personal life as efficiently as her work life. She is assigned a serial killer case described as a career maker or breaker.

Readers who like James Patterson’s Alex Cross, Books by Catherine Coulter, and Janet Evanovich will love Maddie Richards Mysteries.

THE BEHOLDER was inspired by the author’s love to write complex mysteries with leading characters readers will not only like, but relate to. Ashley Judd would make an awesome Maddie Richards. 

 This is available for $0.99 on April 30.

EXCERPT:

After shutting off her engine, Maddie could hear the cries of coyotes, scattered in the bordering hills, voicing their objections to the static coming from the squad-car radios. As she stepped out of her car, she noticed that the lining of her size-ten beige, linen blazer had begun to fray from rubbing over the short-barrel Smith and Wesson .38 she carried on her hip. She had tried a shoulder holster, but rejected it after Jed said, “It makes you look like you’ve got three boobs.”


DAVID BISHOP

I invent victims, villains, and heroes. I make these people fun and interesting so you will welcome them and introduce them to your friends. Primary characters are given the habits, tics and talents which bring them to life and make you love them or hate them. You’ll want to see them humiliated or hunted down, be sucessful or seduced.

Take a journey with me. Laugh. Hold your breath. Cheer. Boo. The characters are rich and the plots are grabbers. I promise that you’ll be glad you came along.” I’m a chocolate and ice cream lover. Why couldn’t those have been the things which were good for us, with vegetables and vitamins not so healthy?  Flowers prolific and weeds hard to  grow? I love to write outdoors where my senses are more engaged. For viewing I enjoy mysteries and comedy, with a touch or taste of the romance that supports smiles and laughter. Then there are books, ah, yes, books, those magical things which allow my imagination to become part of the story, part of seeing the characters.

If she is conversing with anyone, it is the devil himself. Mrs. Fuller, do you think you could help me? I am at my wits end. I fear so for her sanity, for her very soul.”


M. LOUISA LOCKE

I have spent my entire life trying to make the men and women of the past come alive, first as a college history professor for thirty years, and now as a writer of historical fiction. I found comfort in books throughout my life, in works that take me to another time, or place, or universe, and I have find enormous satisfaction in this second career when readers tell me I have given them a similar experience when they spend time with my characters in Victorian San Francisco. I can’t think of a better way to spend my retirement years.

My favorite food is cheese! I love the variety, and the low carbs!  I write up in my office, surrounded by pictures of family and friends, with historical books from the Victorian period at hand, and one of my cats, Mila, sitting at my shoulder. I listen to mostly classical music when I write, but have pretty eclectic musical tastes in general. And my husband and I seem to be watching a lot of British TV, including police procedural and stories about small towns.

EXCERPT:

He equated his past deeds to shades of gray with no distinction between black and white, right and wrong, good and bad. He knew others would see things differently, but it didn’t matter. Few people possessed the ability to intimidate and influence him. The man he was meeting had the power to do both.
