Kate O’Keeffe Presents, No More Bad Dates

No More Bad Dates (High Team #1) (Cozy Cottage Café, #5) by Kate O’Keeffe
Publication date: September 5th 2019
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Synopsis

Three friends form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones – weirdos and jerks need not apply.

Twenty-five-year-old Sophie McCarthy’s career is virtually nonexistent, her family expects her to “do something important” with her life, and she’s totally sick of dating the wrong guys: the self-absorbed, the arrogant, the borderline criminally insane.

After she’s unceremoniously dumped during the vows at her boss’s wedding, she and her two equally disappointed-in-love best friends agree to help each other find decent guys to date. Together, they form the No More Bad Dates Pact: stop dating the wrong guys and start dating the right ones–weirdos and jerks need not apply.

When Sophie’s roommate Jason Christie–a.k.a. doctor-in-training and serial nurse-dater–joins the pact, he vows to weed out the bad ones for her. But with his rejection of every guy Sophie meets, she begins to wonder if he’s got an ulterior motive. And anyway, why does she always have so much more fun with Jason than with the guys she’s actually trying to date?

While desperately seeking her “happy for now,” could Sophie stumble into her “happily ever after?”

Ronald S. Barak Presents, The Puppet Master

The Puppet Master by Ronald S. Barak
Genre: Thriller, Suspense

Synopsis

What would YOU do if they took everything you had, your family, your home, your business, your dignity, even—perhaps—your sanity?

Barak’s latest, The Puppet Master, prequel to The Amendment Killer, and the second in the Brooks/Lotello Thriller Series, is a gripping story of a political system gone awry—and those who feel compelled to fix it. “Have you ever killed anyone? I have. I’ll do it again. If I need to.”Three prominent political leaders in Washington, D.C., murdered in as many days.

Not a plausible story premise? What about the real world villain who recently mailed a series of pipe bombs to a number of prominent political figures? Ripped from the headlines? Barak gives new meaning to the word “timely.” The Puppet Master isn’t ripped from the headlines; written first, it forecast the headlines that followed!

The Puppet Master begins with a bang. Literally. Three of them. Not a page wasted. Capitol Hill panics. Who will be next? Others whisper that our political leaders are only getting what they deserve. Anxious to see who will be next. And why.

Crafty D.C. homicide detective Frank Lotello is tasked to find the killer. Cliff Norman, a local businessman with ample motive, is arrested. Politicians breathe a sigh of relief. However, when Lotello discovers a disturbing White House connection, he suspects Norman may not be what he appears to be. Things may not be what they appear to be.

Norman’s trial commences in the courtroom of savvy D.C. trial court judge Cyrus Brooks. An angry nation rallies behind Norman. The jury debates whether Norman’s actions may be legally justified by a rampant abuse of political trust, and threatens to unravel the very fabric of our dysfunctional government.

In an unprecedented and questionable manner that may destroy their respective careers, Lotello quietly approaches Brooks and they form a secret alliance to uncover the truth in this classic whodunnit mystery. Before it’s too late.

Blurring fiction and reality, The Puppet Master will have you dangling from the first page to the very last.

“One of the year’s best thrillers!” Best Thriller Magazine

“First The Amendment Killer, now The Puppet Master, whenever Barak brings it, the result is always the same, tense, timely and terrific!”Lee Child, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of the Jack Reacher novels.

Memoirs of a False Messiah

Get to know Pamela Becker, author of Memoirs of a False Messiah.

Author Pamela BeckerWhat inspired you to write this book? 

I first moved to a small desert town in Israel in 1994, as part of a writer-in-residence program. I was living in New York City at the time, struggling with working a day job, writing short fiction and getting them published in tiny magazines. The clean, dry desert air was invigorating.

I had several projects in the works at the time and became introduced to the Black Hebrew community in a nearby town. The founders were originally from the US, and they had created a community of like-minded people. This caught my imagination.

What drives someone to create a community so completely different in belief and location from the one they came from?
Like my main character, I was educated in the New York City yeshiva world but was never comfortable with the “different but equal” role of women in Orthodox Judaism.

The more I learned about the Black Hebrews, one idea just led to another, and a Jewish woman, who may or may not be a false Messiah, was born…in my imagination and on the page until it all came together as my novel Memoirs of a False Messiah.

Where did you come up with the names in the story? 

What is more narcissistic than writing a memoir? Or thinking that God has singled you out?

The main character of Memoirs of a False Messiah is named MiMi – pronounced MeMe!

Mimi is often a nickname for Miriam, the name given to her beloved aunt. MiMi loves this aunt and could have easily grown up to be just like her if she hadn’t been compelled by a mission from God.

At first, I named all the side characters in the story after my sisters – I have four – just because they were far away, and I missed them. This way I was still “close” to them when I was writing. But then, just before I published, I changed them.

Tell us something really interesting that’s happened to you.

One of the most incredible experiences in my life was accompanying my sister to Moscow to adopt her daughter, then four years old. We had to stay all together in a hotel for a week, as my sister completed all the necessary procedures and paperwork. I was still breast-feeding, so I brought my youngest who was only four months old along with me. My niece didn’t speak any English yet, we didn’t speak Russian, and my baby son helped break the ice.

I had brought wrapped toys for each day we were together. The first time I gave her a box wrapped in pretty paper, she didn’t know what to do with it. She had never seen a wrapped present before, which stunned me, though I guess I should not have been surprised.

Each day she grew a little more comfortable with my sister, who was a first-time mom and adopting on her own. It was like watching a miracle slowly unfold.

Salvaging Truth Author, Joanne Jaytanie

Author of Salvaging Truth, Joanne Jaytanie, shares her writing secrets.

Much to my editor’s dismay, I’m a pantser at heart. For those who wonder what the heck I mean by a pantser, it means I write by the seat of my pants. My process for every story is to write at least half of the first chapter. During my writing and editing process, the first words I put on the page might change five times over. Even so, they serve as an anchor for my plot.

I’m currently working on a couple of novellas. And I’ve ‘attempted’ to succumb to my editor’s instructions and write an outline. I just want to say, I. Hate. Writing. Outlines! Don’t get me wrong. My editor is spot on with her reasons why I need to do outlines for these books – deadlines. And she’s right. When I finally had the outline worked out, I write quicker. Although I still tend to color outside the lines.

I’ve learned a great deal about myself during this process. I don’t immerse myself into the story the way I do when I – just write. I love when a reader says, “wow, I didn’t see that coming…I couldn’t put the book down.” I’ll tell you a secret…I believe it’s because…I didn’t see that coming. Not until I put it on the page.

Chloe Liese Presents, They’re a Match

Match Chloe LieseThey’re a Match (Tough Love #3) by Chloe Liese
Publication date: August 12th 2019
Genres: Adult, Romance, Suspense

Synopsis:

One blazing relational bond formed by two fiery lovers. And a new element just joined the formula.

Chemistry calls it covalence. Shakespeare named it the “marriage of true minds.” Historically speaking, Nairne never liked the impractical notion of marriage, and Zed never thought he’d live to see the day when tying the knot was even an option. After a decade of entanglement in the mafia, Zed’s now free to play the game he loves and love the woman who owns his heart.

Problem is, the spitfire’s been a loner her whole life. Independent, self-reliant, and driven. And she wants nothing to do with marriage, since statistically it fails more than it succeeds, which to her scientific mind is the universally acknowledged definition of an experimental bust. But the elemental pull toward matrimony between the sexy scientist and her dark and handsome soccer star is stronger than Nairne anticipates. Can she risk her heart for her perfect match, even if it’s a gamble rather than a sure bet?

In the game of life,

you win some, you lose some.

“And They Lived Happily Ever After” is theirs for the taking,

but for that pesky little word that so often gets overlooked…

“Lived.”

Book Three in the Tough Love Series—a suspenseful romance, full of sexy Italians, feisty heroines, a house full of friends and family, and an ending that closes the chapter on these lovers, and paves the way for new ones. Continue reading
