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!"

Book Synopsis:

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 notice you're a Barry Eisler fan? I love his writing! I organised a signing in the UK for him recently in the bookstore I work in in Finchley, London and he was a great speaker.

Take care,

Graham

Yeah, Charlie's an ace. Maybe someday we'll get a story out of him...someday...

The interviews are always fun. You'll have to stay tuned in the coming weeks. I got someone I would categorize as "big name" writer to agree to participate! (No more hints than that though...)

I love the writing process question as well to see how other authors make it happen.

How goes the WIP?

Hey! If a author writes a novel in the forest, and nobody reads it, did it make a sound?
I'm newt, slithering from the shallow end of the gene pool, into the open ocean. Sharks are likely to eat me before the salt water kills me, but who wants a quiet life?

It's post apocalyptic, something I've always wanted to write. It's going very well. Thank you for asking. This is probably the fastest I've ever written a first draft.

Hi Carla. Thanks for the congrats. That's right, I forgot that the paperback of Living Room of the Dead is supposed to come out today. I've been concentrating on the new book, GRAVE IMPORTS, which is coming out in both paper and hardcover at the end of September. Hope all's going well with your new one. What makes it sci fi?

My pleasure. Thanks for writing enjoyable books.

On the fourth disc, in the special features section, there's a way to highlight the squiggly symbol on the side of the screen. It's Adam Baldwin wearing the Jayne hat and singing the song. It's pretty great.

Jaaaaayyyynnne. The man they call Jaaaaaayyyynnne. He steals from the rich and he gives to the poor....

You do know about the easter egg on the DVDs right... with Adam Baldwin?

You got it on Joss Whedon fans! I've been watching the third season of Angel on DVD recently... somehow I missed part of it the first time around. It's good stuff.
So, I gotta ask: What's your favorite episode of Firefly?

Hey Carla--Welcome to CS from a northern neighbor in OK, but I grew up in San Antonio. Best wishes and glad you're here.

Oh, and yes, I enjoyed the conference a lot.

We sat beside each other at lunch on the second day. (Don't worry; I wasn't entirely certain you were the same person, which is why I asked first.)

In my book, my heroine is hired to protect a popular television star after all her co-stars are murdered. My beta reader said it reminded her of Stephanie Plum and Ranger but with a Matrix attitude. :-)
