Hi Jess, I want to introduce you to you my debut novel "A Circle of souls" which is a murder, mystery, psychological thriller and a tale of justice and hope. I was wondering if you would like to review my book for your blog or sites such as Amazon. Do visit www.acircleofsouls.com to read more about the book. If you would like to read it I can mail an advance readers copy to you. Thanks for your time in advance.
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!"
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 Jess, happy to be your new friend. You're just a hop skip and a jump from N'Awlins, right? I've lived here 8 years after relocating from Boston. My first crime thriller just came out, Absolution, set in New Orleans. You can check it out at my website if you like, along with some neat bios of terrific women instrumentalists (I'm a trumpet player and music historian). The website is at www.susanfleet.com
Tks Jess, well, DownUnder we spell embarrassed with two of everything... LOL. Tks for your greeting. I'm working on getting the outline/flow of my novel right now - as DADavenport says (she's a great friend) it's very difficult. Whatever possessed us to try? Hmm.... :)
What I like about Dorothy L (yeah, there's wisdom, but you've got to separate if it from the egotistic chaff from time to time) is the information I can get from READERS. Some of those people are prolific readers (I've decided that's all they do) and to learn what they like and they don't? Wonderful information.
Thanks for asking to be my friend. Since you are from Texas, I am going to be a Head Queen at the Pulpwood Queen and Beauty and the Bookclub extravaganza in January in Jefferson, Texas. Will cook Cajun for 60 media types. My book, The Beatitudes, is getting 5 starred reviews, and available at Amazon.

You can try. When did you send it? Why don't you go to the paper online and email the Life Editor. That might be your best bet. Life Editor is Pamela Seal. If you want to call her it's 337-494-4065 but you might find her email address if you have the patience to search. :)
