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.
I'm practicing living on no money too. I was recently laid off an editing job and took it as a sign to finish another novel. Why is everything fun also scary?
I'd been happy to participate in an interview.
How are your interviews going? I've read quite a few, and my favorite question tends to be "What is your writing process like?" I find it fascinating to look into how other writers go about the process of turning their ideas into a finished product. Because sometimes when I look back on one of my finished books I think magic must've been involved somehow.
thanks for reply to the discussion.
There were two things I had always wanted to do: be a novelist and a reporter. Life got in my way. so now I'm trying publishing what I write from the safety of my home! all the best.
The writing workshops and panels are LIMCON are all about the writing, both in Boot Camp and in the Master Classes. You'll hear much about mystery, suspense, and so on, but you'll hear more about dialog, characterization, process, description, plotting, and so on.
Hi Bethany...good for you...writers need advocates like you.
My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite www.beatitudesinneworleans.blogspot.com describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…..it’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.
Easter Egg? No, I guess I haven't seen it. Or maybe I have and I've forgotten it. I adore Adam Baldwin. Jayne started out as my least favorite character on the show and quickly became my favorite. It was obvious Baldwin loved playing him.
I've been rewatching Buffy for the third time. I'm just finishing up season 6. As for Firefly, that's a tough one. Maybe Out of Gas. Or Objects in Space, with the crazy bounty hunter. "I can't keep track of her when she's NOT incorporeally possessing a
spaceship." Or maybe, Our Mrs. Reynolds. It's pretty funny, as is Jaynestown (the song is hilarious). Do I have to pick just one? I think I could pick fifteen favorites, maybe fourteen if you count Serenity pts 1 and 2 as one.
