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.
Yes, I received the magazine and we loved your story; it was awesome! The article that you wrote was very professional and well-written, too. You have a very delightful, pleasing writing style and I predict that you're going to be very much in demand from now on. Keep up the good work, Charlotte!
Did you ever get signed in to Book Place yet? (I'm sorry I didn't answer you sooner, but Dion took his vacation from work and I haven't been on the computer much. We just got back.) Let me know and if you still need help, I'll be johnny-on-the-spot!
Much love, Cynde
Oh thanks so much Charlotte. I haven't gone back to finish all the editing for my NaNoWriMo story; the excerpt is on the website though.
I'm trying so hard to get thru all the editing phases with the story I'm co-authoring. It's been written for a long time, but then we discovered there were "rules", of all things! LOL. But I definitely appreciate your time and your expertise. I'm blessed to have made a friend named "Charlotte".
Charlotte, your comment made me laugh and sniffle...both good emotions, especially if you're a writer! I think our engines still rev at about the same rate! Lucky person who bought your Camaro; hope he appreciates her like you did. I know you're a busy lady, but if you have the time, I'd love for you to visit my web site, jeanniebarber.com. I'm a novice writer so feel free to make any kind of suggestions, ideas or thoughts to correct it. I’m co-authoring a novel with Patty Wiseman, another friend on Goodreads. We’ve known each other for over 30 years. While you're there, please sign the guestbook, too! There’s also a link to our book you can click on…firstname.lastname@example.org. This site is brand new and in the editing stage as is our story. Please visit it as well. We’re both very green, but like Crimespace, I’ve met so many people willing to reach out and offer advice or a guiding hand. I've love for you to join. We can never have enough friends and I'd LOVE to be in FL with you. Cheryl Norman is also from FL and she invited me to Goodread.
OH...P.S. Charlotte has always been one of my very FAVORITE names!
Good morning, Charlotte. I know exactly what you mean by not having enough hours in the day. Happily, most of my time is filled with things that I love doing like reading and writing, working and working out. I feel I am truly blessed to be able to do what I do. I'm sure you feel the same way.
You are such a dear heart! Of course I realize that it was the editor's idea to split the story into two parts--it's a brilliant marketing strategy! From that point of view I think it's a great idea, but when I'm the one reading the story and I have to wait, I hate it! A lot like a spoiled brat, right? Well, I've lived through much worse, so I think I'll live through this alright. And besides that, the conclusion to your story is definitely worth waiting for!
Your messages are always perfect as far as I'm concerned!
Yes, I did receive the magazine and thank you! I was waiting until my husband had also finished reading the story before I posted my comment to you about it.
We both absolutely loved it! It was awesome and we can't wait for the conclusion--(that's why I detest it when they split the stories like that!) It drives me crazy--especially when the story is as excellent as yours is!
Much love, Cynde
