First, I'd like to extend gratitude to Giovanni Gelati for allowing me to yap to ya'll today, and to ask ya'll to bear with this southern gal, as this is the first guest post I've ever written.
I started blogging in August of 2009 with no intention of taking it as far as I have. I simply read a book one day, loved it so much, and hoped on Amazon to post a review of it. While there, I looked at some of the other reviews, and…Continue

Starting today just about every author involved with Trestle Press will have a QR code for their work, not just their novels, novella’s and digital short stories, but also their own blogs, websites….What exactly is a QR Code? Here is a little something from Wikipedia I hope that will help to explain it and then I will go into how and why we are implementing this immediately:
“A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that…Continue

The “Drunk on The Moon” series has quickly become a fav of mine. The installments are slated to hit once every three weeks, next up for the fourth installment is B.R. Stateham;it is a barn burner, and it comes in at about 11,000 words. But I digress, sorry. Allan Leverone was nice enough to helm the third installment and he does a great job dancing between the noir and the horror. He uses a deft hand in continuing the series and giving us another facet to the character and better…Continue

Paul D. Brazill has become a very popular guy this summer. Today, Weds. August 17th I am going to be handing my blog over to the man’s work to highlight it. He has penned the “Drunk on the Moon” series that has just been on fire since the first installment and has not let up at all. Now he has put out a little something he calls “Brit Grit”, a group of short stories. Both words in the title are very appropriate. The wording has a decidedly British feel and it does…Continue

Blood, suspense, mystery, intrigue what are you looking for in a good read? Well, this one has them all. Molly Edwards goes for broke in her debut effort and delivers the goods, in spades. I can say I was NOT surprised when I got a chance to read this. Her ability to write is evident in the first paragraph. She knows how to create a universe and draw us into her characters’ lives and make us care about them very quickly. I think you have gathered by now that I really enjoy the digital short…Continue

It’s interesting how we can see things more clearly when we look back at events, how it shapes the present and even the future. Here’s the real story behind my recent thriller novel Silent Partner.
Sometime during 2002, I had an idea for a…Continue
We know that psychopaths lack remorse, empathy, ethics, and a conscience. They lie with absolute clarity for whatever appeases them and their lifestyle. They are almost like an unscrupulous chameleon showing their mask of normalcy for most of the world to see, but wait for the opportunity to strike out against unsuspecting victims.
Crime seems to be a logical choice for many of…Continue
I own a French Blog on crime fiction and thrillers (http://leblogdupolar.com) I'd like to open an international section, the basic idea being that every month, bloggers from all over the world would pick their favorite post of the month to be translated into French and appear on the Blog du polar with link to the original blog, of course.
If you like the idea and would like to participate, you're welcome to contact…Continue

"Intricately layered, Harvest of Ruins works well on several levels. On the surface it’s a taut legal thriller that interweaves the proceedings currently unfolding in the courtroom with the events that brought McKenna to this point. On a deeper level, however, Harvest of Ruins is a psychological study of the devastating effects of guilt, both for actions taken as well as those not taken.
"Author Sandra Ruttan’s writing is some of the smoothest and most realistic you will ever…
