The End of Crimespace..please read

I see on Ning's homepage that they have decided to end free web hosting. This will of course mean the end of many fine communities that have arisen here over the last few years. The paid thing is going live May 4th or thereabouts. I know that paying for this service isn't an option for many of our members, and I can't really see paying for it myself, since I already have a hosted website to promote my work.



I must say that it has been tremendous fun and a growing experience belonging… Continue

Finishing up #6

Roland Longville is back in the sixth installment of the series, The Burning Day. Back, that is, just as soon as I can finish editing and reworking the manuscript. Events in the last part of last year completely derailed me, and I have been out of the loop for a bit, but I've dusted myself off, and I'm back. So wish me well; here I go again.

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.

Tim,
Thanks for the comment regarding my interview. Hope you have the opportunity to listen on June 9.
Regarding your comment: I'm seeing you as an older Rhett Butler: white suit, gold headed cane.(sans mustache) Only Rhett (the Margaret Mitchell character) was from Savannah. But I suppose LA (lower Alabama) would be close. In accent, anyway. As for me, I was born, bred, and raised in Cobb County Georgia. Spent the first fifty-somenthing years of my life there. My husband and I retired and moved to S.W. Florida, but have our home for sale, and am planning to move back to N.W. Georgia soon. We miss the seasons. Down here in Florida, we have only two seasons: Spring and Summer.
I like the music on your crimespace page. A new discovery I can play while I work.
What accomplishments! I am in awe. One day I hope I can achieve your heights. Good luck.

Busy, busy. Next book (the gatekeeper) is due in 2 weeks, so I'm killing myself revising it and trying not to panic. Argh.

Hi Tim,

Good to hear from you. The book is doing really well and is now Number 1 in the UK Jack the Ripper Fiction chart at Amazon UK. I'm over the moon with it.

My forthcoming novel 'The Nemesis Cell' is nominated for the New Covey Cover Awards for December. Could I ask if you'd mind placing a vote for me there at The New Covey Awards

I'd really appreciate it.

Hope all's going well for you right now and that you have a great Christmas and New Year.

Best regards

Brian

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the blog comment. It's always good to meet a fellow ripperologist. I hope you enjoy the book if you do end up getting a copy. I've spent 36 years studying the case, but I will admit that the suspect who I've used as my model for the novel is not in fact the person I really believe to be the ripper. He wouldn't have fitted my fictional profile I'm afraid.the book is doing well and picking up some wonderful reviews, and I can't hope for much more than that.
Will look forward to hearing from you again and hope all's going well for you too.

Best regards

Brian

Tim-

Wow, it sounds like there's a lot more to that story- which jobs have you wandered through? My resume is really a testimony to me not being able to hold down a job, sadly.
