"And if the big-name author has made lots of money for the publisher already, they feel obligated. But let's face it, the fans will buy anything."

"It is true that the first manuscript submitted must be polished because many editors are looking for reasons to reject. On the other hand, seasoned writers have had practice and don't make the mistakes novices make."

"Description isn't necessarily needed, as the dialogue and an occasional introductory sentence will move the story along. Some feel the details should be filled in by the reader, using one's own imagination to help create the story. Of…"

"Of course you try to make the changes they want once they've come through with the contract, but have you looked at editors lately? Most look like highschool seniors. (Though I daresay they have a B.A.)"

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.
