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.
Congrats on finding the time to get so far into your next book. I just read your description of yourself as both cynical and optimistic: I'd say that pretty much describes myself. I'm also told I'm unrealistic to expect our baseball team here in Seattle, The Mariners, could actually have a better season this year, but with a new GM and Manager, I remain hopeful. Take care.
Hi. You find more time to write this winter? My NY resolution: write more (bought a new headphone with 90% sound filter so that'll help me concentrate). Hope that you're doing well and have a very happy and prosperous 2009.
It still feels strange to be called an Oregonian. As much as I enjoy living in Oregon, I'll always be a Kentucky girl at heart. Thanks for the warm welcome, and I apologize for the long delay before responding. Maybe we'll run into each other sometime.
Some proven advice. Never throw away anything you write. About ten years ago I did a horror novel that never circulated because my agent said, "I wouldn't know who to send it to." So it went into an MS box and gathered dust until a former writing student from Georgetown University connected me with a production company in LA looking for horror scripts. Now it's slated for production in Feb, 2009.
Howdy, thanks for the encouraging word. I'm probably about a month away from buying the scooter. I'll wait until the first cold snap hits San Antonio and the prices on bikes will drop like a rock. We don't do cold well down here. New blog tomorrow, drop by.
Hope you are having a great holiday weekend! Say I have a great giveaway going on at my website -- a free download of DEAD ON. Have you ever tried such a thing? Trying to get word of mouth going on this before it becomes toooo late which is like the day after a book is published, right? Any rate, have been asking around if anyone's tried anything of this nature to get buzz going on a book. You ever try anything similar? The site is www.robertwalkerbooks.com
