A Particular Darkness

A PARTICULAR DARKNESS 
by Robert Dunn
Genre: Thriller
Pub Date: 9/12/2017
 
 
From the author of A Living Grave
comes a gripping police procedural featuring sheriff’s detective
Katrina Williams as she exposes the dark underbelly of Appalachia . .
.
 
Dredging up the Truth
Still recovering from tragedy and
grieving a devastating loss, Iraq war veteran and sheriff’s detective
Katrina Williams copes the only way she knows how—by immersing
herself in work. A body’s just been pulled from the lake with a fish
haul, but what seems like a straight-forward murder case over the
poaching of paddlefish for domestic caviar quickly becomes murkier
than the depths of the lake.
Soon a second body is found—an
illegal Peruvian refugee woman linked to a charismatic tent revival
preacher. But as Katrina tries to investigate the enigmatic
evangelist, she is blocked by antagonistic FBI agents and Army CID
personnel. When more young female refu-gees disappear, she must
partner with deputy Billy Blevins, who stirs mixed feelings in her,
to connect the lake murder to the refugees. Katrina is no stranger to
darkness, but cold-blooded conspirators plan to make sure she’ll
never again see the light of day . . .

The
advent of retirement opened a whole new world to me and now that it
has come to pass, I am turning my artistic bent from graphic design
and illustration to that of writing.
To
date I have published three books, KILLING SOFTLY (an erotic mystery
thriller), and begun an action crime series centered on two
characters, Captain Kramer, USMC and his Anatolian Shepherd dog, Sgt.
Shadow, USMC. Book One of the series is THE PITS, Book Two is YOU CAN
RUN, and at the time of this bibliography rewrite, I am working on
Book Three, LEX TALIONIS.

 

The
Kramer and Shadow series is an action, adventure, crime thriller
series that encompasses the world and has our two Marines fighting
hard against organized crime at many levels – but always involving
do-or-die confrontations.

 

My
hope is to establish a fan base for my writing so that my readers can
have an active role in helping me grow and develop as an author in
the years to come. I invite you to join me in this adventure.

Captain Hawkins
The Jamie Hawkins Sage Book 1
By H. Peter Alesso
Genre: SciFi ,Action, Adventure, Thriller
About the Book
Action packed battles – plus an alien mystery with an original twist
Jamie Hawkins was living on an obscure planet in the twenty third-century when on one fateful night–his life changed forever. His heroic effort to save the lives of innocent women and children, caught in the cross-fire of war, placed him squarely in the cross-hairs of avenging soldiers.
A former marine, Hawkins was stunned when his rescue effort was seen as treachery. Unfairly convicted of treason by a corrupt judge, he was sentenced to life imprisonment at hard labor on an infamous penal colony.
Once in prison, his courage and perseverance won him the admiration and trust of his fellow convicts. While he was plotting his escape, an enemy attacked the planet–giving this daring warrior his chance. Together with his fellow prisoners, he launched a bold assault and high-jacked an enemy warship.
From then on, Captain Jamie Hawkins on his ship, the Indefatigable, fought in ship-to-ship and fleet actions against the government–only to discover that something insidious was behind the war–a mysterious alien presence with a original twist.

Dark September tells us about the horror of war

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Brendan O’Brien author of Dark September

Q1 – Brendan where were you born and where do you live now?

I was born and grew up in Tralee, Co Kerry, on the west coast of Ireland. I now live in Newport, South Wales, with my wife Jennifer and daughters Shelly and Sarah

71DGIguDf1L._UX250_

Q2 – I bet is beautiful there. What makes you passionate about writing?

When I won my first writing competition I was so excited I ran all the way home. I was about eight years old. The Fun Fair was coming to Tralee – our little town on the West coast of Ireland – and apart from Duffy’s Circus which came in September, this was the highlight of our year. Our English teacher asked us to write an essay about it, and I won the only prize – a book of ten tickets for the fair. There were eight kids in our family so everyone got a ride on something. So writing was in my blood from a very young age. I’ve always loved essays and English literature. I love it when a character pops into my mind and I can manipulate it, make it come to life and embark on an exciting adventure.

 

Q3 – How exiting. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? (more…)

Mind control…do you believe in that?

Corsonia by Susan Berliner

Susan, what is your typical day like?

I write in the morning before breakfast. First, I review the scene(s) I wrote the previous day and make changes. (My work is never “finished” in one take; it always needs editing.) Then I sit at the computer and compose a new scene. I’m very focused during this creative time, which lasts for about an hour. Later in the day, I usually edit and/or promote my novels. I also go on Facebook, where I have a group and pages for each of my books. Twice a week, I blog about writing on my website’s “Blog” page.

Final Pix - Portrait - Rachel Leib

Do you write with music or not?

I don’t write with music. In fact, I need complete quiet when I write. Before I begin, I remove the phone and close the door of the den. I get very angry with family members if they interrupt me during my creative time. But since I only write for about an hour each day, I’m not really much of a diva. (more…)

After photographing an abandoned gold mine, Loren swipes a bottle of water from an eerily robotic man stocking bottles in the only occupied store of an otherwise deserted shopping center. The water’s effect on Loren leads the pair to investigate the strange little town of Corsonia—despite threats from the local sheriff. And when Loren and Tracie befriend a child named Boy 11, who tells them about his curious life and upcoming fate, the girls become even more determined to figure out what is going on.
As the relentless teens uncover a horrifying trail of evil, they put their own lives in dire jeopardy. Will the girls be able to rescue the people of Corsonia—or will Loren and Tracie become the town’s next victims?
