Newly created children's story blog

Well, since I've contracted for the state stories, figured I needed to create a blog about the stories and the characters themselves. So I have created a new blog that will be dedicated just to the state mystery stories themselves. Check it out at http://jgdsseries.blogspot.com - Leave a comment, let me know what you would like to see as the stories progress towards publication - E :)

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 Elizabeth, have to agree with your commments. I have been on MySpace for a while now and have to say that there is a very purile element to it.I have had to look twice at some of the comments, invitations and emails that have made their way to me. It is very worrying and certainly should be more tightly regulated. I am a great believer in free speech but there needs to protection afforded to people who are vulnerable and open to exploitation. I am contacting my other reader and writer friends on MySpace to make sure they are aware of Crimespace.

Hi Elysabeth. I remember you said you wanted to read the book some time ago. It will be out in paperback and available to order by the end of the month if you prefer it in hard copy.I'm very flattered that you still want to get your hands on a copy of 'A Study in Red'.

Thank you.
