As avid book readers, reviewers, bloggers, we know that there is a big discussion taking place about this new era of technology and publishing. What do the consumers, authors and publishing houses want? What does the future hold? What is the answer? Is there one?
I was recently contacted by an author on this very subject asking if I would read and review one of her books and “possibly participating in a new experiment to examine how powerful blogging and book reviews might be in helping a small press book to gain attention”. Her experiment would be in the time frame of March 3-7, 2011. Both books sounded like my “type of books” but was honest and said I was back logged and knew there I couldn’t promise a review in that that time but invited her to come and visit so that maybe you could and would share your thoughts with her on this subject. I will be providing all links so that you can contact her and leave your comments. She is also generously offering the chance for three (3) of my visitors the chance to win an EBook edition of Twenty-Five Years Ago Today. So please help me welcome Ms. Stacy Juba.
Kris Langley has always been obsessed with murder. She blames herself for the violent death of her cousin when they were kids and has let guilt invade every corner of her existence. Now an editorial assistant and obit writer, Kris stumbles across an unsolved murder while compiling “25 Years Ago Today” items from the microfilm. Determined to solve the case and atone for the death of her cousin, Kris immerses herself in the mystery of what happened to Diana Ferguson, a talented artist who expressed herself through haunting paintings of Greek mythology. Not only does Kris face resistance from her family and her managing editor, she also clashes with Diana’s suspicious nephew, Eric Soares – until neither she nor Eric can deny the chemistry flaring between them. She soon learns that old news never leaves the morgue and that yesterday’s headline is tomorrow’s danger, for finding out the truth about that night twenty-five years ago may shatter Kris’s present, costing her love, her career, and ultimately, her life.
