Hello and welcome to another edition of Digital short Saturday. Today I am going to have two posts and they both deal with stories that are part of a series. I like the series most of all because I enjoy the character development and the wanting more part of it. Business first though today: Laurie Bowler will be our guest on our blogtalk show The G-ZONE on Thursday Feb. 24th at 8am EST. Yes, for those of us that live in the USA I have 8am written there, Breakfast with Laurie. She…Continue

Things are getting intense around here at Gelati’s Scoop. We are getting involved in much and have much more to do. Sound vague, yes but I have a few things going and can’t reveal all at this time. Next week I am going to drop in something neat, at least I hope that you like it. Anyway, we got a nice compliment from author Irene Hannon on our blogtalk show the other day. Irene was nice enough to point out that the guest we have had and will be having on the blogtalk show are some pretty…Continue
The battle is over, the bombs dropped, the shots fired, the smoke cleared, the dead lay scattered across the battlefield, the wounded picked up and carted out to the mobile hospitals. Me, I sit with my back up against the trench, face hot and dirty from the soil that sticks to my sweat, my breath beginning to even out, lit cigarette danging from trembling fingers.

Justice Rules is his first novel and was nominated as a finalist in the Pacific Northwest Writers Association 2010 Literary contest.

Well, it's more than a push...I'm doing a signing tonight at the Albany B&N for THE REMAINS, but I want to see at the same time, how many digital copies of THE INNOCENT I can sell at the same time. The I will blog about the results. THE INNOCENT is in the midst of a Virtual Tour right now so StoneGate is offering it up for $.99 which is pretty much free. So hope you can help and download a copy ans see what happens....

Our blog has almost been around for a year and we…Continue

A little about the story – He calls himself ‘The Wolf’ and he is cunning and ruthless and has gotten away with murder until he finds himself doggedly pursued by a most accomplished homicide detective – a man half-Cajun and half-Sioux, a predatory hunter of murderers, a man named John Raven Beau. Which one of these killers will kill again?…Continue
