A funny story on the Graveyard Shift blog...

Reminded me of my career as a crime fighter. Sort of. For 21 years I was married to a small-town cop. A really, really small town. Let's call it Windy Point. That's not it's name, but I was windy ,so...

This town was so small it only had 2 1/2 cops. That meant that the town was "unprotected" about 8 hours a day as the half cop worked the other two cops days off.

My ex was a scrappy little banty rooster type.Think a Hispanic looking Barney Fife. Although he wasn't Hispanic, some Native… Continue

Don't they employ copy editors anymore?

OK, in this day and age of text messaging and l33t speak, I am probably a Luddite, but it annoys me when I read a book that looks like it was copy-edited by Spell-Check. You know the errors I mean. Do for due, to for two, now here that is supposed to be nowhere. Don't human read these manuscripts anymore? Is the book biz so marginal that they can't take some pride in their work? OK, I mostly find these types of errors in mystery fiction, and face it, these books are probably not going to be… Continue

Early Endorsements for “A Circle of Souls”

Linda Fairstein, NYT Bestselling Author: "A fascinating debut - this novel takes the reader to the darkest places in the human soul, from a writer with the authenticity to lead us there. A stunning thriller and an important read."

Judge Judy Sheindlin, star of the Judge Judy Show: "The seminal work of this fine author kept me glued to my chair until the adventure was over and the mystery solved. A great read!"

Book Synopsis:

The sleepy town of Newbury, Connecticut, is shocked when a little girl is found brutally murdered. The town s top detective, perplexed by a complete lack of leads, calls in FBI agent Leia Bines, an expert in cases involving children.

Meanwhile, Dr. Peter Gram, a psychiatrist at Newbury s hospital, searches desperately for the cause of seven-year-old Naya Hastings devastating nightmares. Afraid that she might hurt herself in the midst of a torturous episode, Naya s parents have turned to the bright young doctor as their only hope.

The situations confronting Leia and Peter converge when Naya begins drawing chilling images of murder after being bombarded by the disturbing images in her dreams. Amazingly, her sketches are the only clues to the crime that has panicked Newbury residents. Against her better judgment, Leia explores the clues in Naya s crude drawings, only to set off an alarming chain of events.
In this stunning psychological thriller, innocence gives way to evil, and trust lies forgotten in a web of deceit, fear, and murder.

Hi Eileen
I'm an editor so these things jump out at me too. It's distracting. And it takes so long for a book to be published, you know they have time to thoroughly edit it.
I'm sorry to hear of your pain. I'm glad you have books to give you some comfort.

Ah you touched upon Norse Mythology, which I enjoy greatly. I even have the plans for a novel setting Ragnorok in modern times with the Gods awakening for the great battle. Now I must go and find my notes for the muse has struck

A good book as regards dependents on steady electricity and recharges is Arthur Haley's Overload, about the consequences to a rolling blackout. In writing it he was more than a little prescient.

after reading your "About Me" I must say.....Wow... I thought 'I' read a lot! But according to King reading is the best way to improve your own writing. Therefore I still have a lot of reading to do before I ever find a way to make money off this gig.

P.S. thanks for the comment on my page!
