Teaser Tuesday

My good friend Gina, from Hott Books, recently interviewed me and today she posted it on her site.  It was an honor to be asked .  Let me tell you a little about Gina,  she has a huge, caring heart.  A great Mom!!   Even though we have not met face to face,  we have become close friends via the internet.  If you haven’t visited her blog, (btw she designed it), take a look around, read her interview, say hi, and once you see what you have been missing, become a follower.  I’m headed there now.  Hope to see you there too.

Arianna gasped slowly for air.   She didn’t cry.   The pain she felt in her side wasn’t bad enough to give her husband the satisfaction.
“When I say it is time to leave, it is time to leave.   There is no room for negotiation in this marriage.”

Progress:  
Pitiful…just pitiful.  Whenever I sign up for a Read-A-Thon, I just can’t seem to accomplish my goal and that is to read.  Yesterday I worked at the computer, thinking I would get a lot of items taken care of, then get snuggly in the recliner in my recliner and read.  Good plan, right?  WRONG.  For some reason, yesterday I was in slow-mo, got hardly anything done, kept getting interrupted by phone calls,  real life chores, etc and only got a whopping 2 hours of reading time in.
Today my goal is the same except that I will be off the computer by noon, even if my work is not completed and will start reading.  And oh yes…I just may be screening my calls  lol.

Terrified.   What did you do?   I called 911.   Why?   She was afraid of Wael.   He had threatened her before.   The responding officers had found Rahim, covered with her blood, trying to stuff his sister’s body into the building’s incinerator.

Synopsis:
Nationally bestselling author James LePore has established a reputation as a writer whose vividly drawn characters and morally complex plots have kept readers up to all hours turning pages. His new novel promises more sleepless nights and more nonstop thrills.

Matt DeMarco is an accomplished Manhattan attorney with more than his share of emotional baggage. His marriage ended disastrously, his ex-wife has pulled their son away from him, and her remarriage to a hugely successful Arab businessman has created complications for Matt on multiple levels. However, his life shifts from troubled to imperiled when two cops – men he’s known for a long time – come into his home and arrest his son as the prime suspect in the murder of the boy’s girlfriend.

Suddenly, the enmity between Matt and his only child is no longer relevant. Matt must do everything he can to clear his son, who he fully believes is innocent. Doing so will require him to quit his job and make enemies of former friends – and it will throw him up against forces he barely knew existed and can only begin to comprehend how to battle.

If this sounds like something you would enjoy reading and reviewing, this novel is touring with Partners In Crime Tours February-Aril 2012.  Email me and I can provide you with more details (CMash@Partnersincrimetours.net)

“I haven’t heard from Beau. Is something wrong?’ Mrs. Fulan dropped her gaze, her eyes damp and red, tissues clutched in her hands. Mr Fulan cleared his throat, “May we come in, please?”

“By 1940 we couldn’t buy shoes or clothes. Then we couldn’t have cameras. Then we couldn’t buy coffee, chicken, fish or vegetables. We couldn’t buy coal to heat the house.

At the end of the day, many of the steps forward you take, you take by yourself. Sometimes you get a little help along the way. That’s why God invented your mother, sisters, daughters and girlfriends. (Sometimes I think God should have quit while he was ahead).
