Book Blitz: Asleep from Day by Margarita Montimore

 

Contemporary/General Fiction

Date Published: January 10th, 2018

Astrid can’t remember the best day of her life: yesterday.

 A traumatic car accident erases Astrid’s memories of September 9th, the day she spent with an oddly charming stranger named Theo. Ever since, she’s been haunted by surreal dreams and an urgent sense that she’s forgotten something important. One night, she gets a mysterious call from Oliver, who knows more about her than he should and claims he can help her remember. She accepts his help, even as she questions his motives and fights a strange attraction to him.

 In order to find Theo and piece together that lost day in September, Astrid must navigate a maze of eccentric Boston nightlife, from the seedy corners of Chinatown to a drug-fueled Alice-in-Wonderland-themed party to a club where everyone dresses like the dead. In between headaches and nightmares, she struggles to differentiate between memory, fantasy, and reality, and starts to wonder if Theo really exists. Eventually, she’ll need to choose between continuing her search for him or following her growing feelings for Oliver. Astrid might go to extreme lengths to find what she’s lost . . . or might lose even more in her pursuit to remember (like her sanity).

 

 “A compelling and original take on the classic amnesia tale . . . The narrative bursts with detailed, vivid characters . . . The dialogue is expertly crafted.” – The BookLife Prize

 “Simply riveting from start to finish… a captivating, literary piece that winds a path somewhere between mystery, romance, and psychological thriller.” – D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

About the Author

Jackie Ladbury was desperate to become a journalist when she left school but was ousted within minutes on the day of the exam at her local rag because she’d forgotten to bring a pen.

Short and sharp lesson learned.

Her budding writing career was not on hold for long, though, as Jackie found herself scribbling love stories of pilots and ‘hosties’ while she flew in aeroplanes of various shapes and sizes as a flight attendant herself.

Fast forward a good few years and, after being short-listed in a couple of prestigious romantic writing competitions, Jackie decided it was time to discard her stilettos, say goodbye to the skies and concentrate on writing romantic novels, where the only given is a guaranteed ‘happy ever after.’

Book Blitz: Strong Ambitions by GP Hutchinson

 

Emmett Strong Westerns, Book 3

Western Historical Fiction

Date Published: 1/4/2018 

Tiny, yet prospering Benficklin, Texas, wants a clean, respectable town marshal to safeguard their pristine community from the kind of riffraff that turned neighboring Santa Angela into a raucous string of blood-spattered saloons and bawdy sporting houses. Former Texas Ranger Emmett Strong seems to be just the man Benficklin’s town fathers are looking for, once they’re satisfied that his Chinese wife, Li, is “sufficiently civilized.”

Reputations aside, Benficklin—not Santa Angela—is the town with the next scandal on its hands, when the ravaged body of a young, murdered Mexican girl is found lying in the middle of Main Street.

Initial signs suggest hard-drinking cowboy Quirt Langdon may have done the deed. Emmett, however, senses that things aren’t exactly as they appear. Nearby Fort Concho’s Captain Roderick Prentiss seems peculiarly interested in what is clearly a civilian case. And Santa Angela’s most eccentric resident gambler, Nate Chaffin, gives the impression he knows things he’s not telling. To top it all off, two of Benficklin’s leading citizens end up assassinated in their own backyard.

While local officials pressure Emmett to hastily hang either a suspect or a scapegoat, honor drives the former Ranger to seek true justice for the poor murdered girl, as well as for the two prominent citizens. Ill-tempered townsfolk, pilfered evidence, and somebody taking potshots at him and his wife make Emmett wonder whether he’ll live to unravel the mystery or become the next corpse folks find in the dusty streets of Benficklin.

Strong Convictions

Emmett Strong Westerns, Book 1

Published: February 2015

In 1876 the seemingly impossible happened in San Antonio, Texas–Emmett Strong, a prodigy of a pistolero, accidentally shot his own young wife in a showdown gone awry.

Five years later, death again visits Emmett’s family. And now, want to or not, he’s going to have to overcome his reluctance to draw his six-gun if he’s to catch and bring to justice the crazed gunman who murdered his brother. The pursuit of his brother’s killer takes him all the way to Nevada’s Comstock country where the assassin has taken refuge with rich and powerful kin.

Unforeseen situations abound in Emmett’s new surroundings, none more unexpected than forbidden love when he falls for Li Xu, the fascinating daughter of Chinese immigrants. But before the relationship has time to bloom, Li Xu disappears–kidnapped  along with five other young women.

Can Emmett afford to leave off the chase of his brother’s murderer to search for and rescue the women? Can he afford not to? With success hanging on quick thinking and quick shooting, can he take one last shot at both love and retribution?

Strong Suspicions

Emmett Strong Westerns, Book 2

Published: March 2016

Strong Suspicions, the second Western by award-winning author GP Hutchinson, is a masterfully crafted barn burner of a story, certain to draw you in and leave you thirsting for more.

After pursuing a cold-blooded murderer all the way to Nevada, Texas Ranger Emmett Strong is returning home to San Antonio—but not alone. He’s found a girl he longs to marry. Finding someone to tie the knot for them is proving to be a challenge, however, owing to the fact that she’s the daughter of Chinese immigrants.

Along the way, there’s a ruckus in El Paso’s Wild Hog Saloon, and by noon the next day, folks are convinced it was Emmett and his compadres who robbed the saloon owner and beat him unconscious. They want Emmett on the end of a rope.

Meanwhile, a bested enemy, set on revenge, hires the notorious fast gun “Three-Finger” Ned Cage to dispatch Strong, his amigos, and even his girl.

When the only way out of trouble is to head smack-dab back into the middle of it—beautiful young woman in tow—a cool-headed pistolero like Emmett Strong becomes a force to be reckoned with. But will the vicious array of enemies prove to be too much this time, even for Strong?

About the Author

GP Hutchinson fell in love with the Old West decades ago—the gritty reality of the era, the daunting yet breathtaking scope and scale of the land, and the colorful (if somewhat fanciful) tales of heroes and heroines who overcame the odds. Texas was his home for a few years, and subsequent visits to states throughout the West only served to deepen his enthusiasm for the region and his appreciation of its people. In 2015 he published his first Western novel, Strong Convictions, which won him the Western Fictioneers Peacemaker Award for Best First Western of that year, as well as a National Indie Excellence Award. Strong Suspicions, the second volume in the Emmett Strong Western series, garnered a Gold Medal in the 2016 Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards. Regarding Strong Convictions, Classic Western film star Alex Cord wrote, “GP Hutchinson has the gift to tell a compelling tale, enlighten you without preaching and keep you on the edge of your seat. He takes you on unexpected trails populated by flesh and blood characters of depth and substance.” A graduate of Louisiana State University and Dallas Theological Seminary, Hutchinson has lived in Costa Rica and Spain. He currently resides in upstate South Carolina with his wife, Carolyn. Besides writing, he enjoys spending time in the mountains and horseback riding whenever the opportunity arises.

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Reflections by The Pamlico Writers Group

With a love for poetic words and their meaning, a well respected business owner  and native of Beaufort County had a vision. He wanted others to experience and feel the powerful meaning of words. The birth of the Pamlico Writers Group by Jerry Cuthrell in the late 70’s has made that dream what it is today.

Since its inception, the Pamlico Writers Group has helped many authors achieve their dreams. Some have written and published books of their own. Others have been inspired to resurrect works long forgotten. Many have come and gone, but the Pamlico Writers Group stands as a beacon of hope to future writers and their dreams.

The Pamlico Writers Group’s mission is to help other aspiring writers accomplish their goal in writing. We achieve this through our local critique group meetings, online critique groups, and by offering as an incentive to our young people, a High School Scholarship fund. We’re honored to be a co-sponsor of the Pamlico Writers Conference that helps make funding possible for this scholarship. Our visions, help shape the minds of the future.

Reflections

By Sherri Hollister

Chair, Pamlico Writers Group

Reflections, like the face of the moon’s silver glow on the Pamlico or the sunlight’s dappled drops of golden light, we along the river’s edge can view the passing of time through the ebb and flow of the tides. Our native history lives on in our farmers, loggers, watermen, and hunters. Though times have changed all around us, many things here in rural North Carolina have stayed the same. Like our tar-heeled ancestors, we often dig in and remain—even when change might be easier, even preferable.
 
 When I first started with the Pamlico Writers’ Group over fifteen years ago, I was unsure of my craft, believing it only to be a hobby. On and off again, I returned to the group over the years, gleaning information and struggling to write amid the chaos of a busy household. As my children grew and left home, I devoted more and more time to the dream of writing professionally. A few years ago, I came out to friends and family, announcing “I am a writer!”
 
Once the gauntlet has been laid down, it is challenging to then produce a work worthy of publishing. I have been on the cusp many times, struggling to have my work recognized. With
the birth of the Pamlico Writers’ Group 2016 Anthology, “A Carolina Christmas,” my dream of being published finally came true.
 
The effort to produce a book worthy of being published takes time and effort, and dedicated people. This year’s anthology, “Reflections” was a labor of love. Louis Edwards, Pamlico Writers’ Group assistant chairperson, designed the cover. The theme was chosen by a committee vote with the hopes that the stories and poems would be varied and reflective of each authors’ individual interpretation of the idea.
 
The Pamlico Writers’ Group has evolved from a group of friends getting together to discuss their writing, to a serious group of talented writers sharing information, their work and assisting each other to become the best writers they can be.
 
When Doris Schneider first brought the idea of the Pamlico Writers’ Conference to Jim Keen, the chairperson of the Pamlico Writers’ Group, they could not have conceived of the changes the conference would have on the group. With each conference we challenge ourselves to greater diversity and expansion. We have hosted some of the greatest writers and poets in North Carolina as keynote speakers and presenters: Jill McCorkle, Sharyn McCrumb, Zelda Lockhart and Shelby Stephenson, just to name a few. We have met writers, agents and publishers who have led workshops and spoken at luncheons. We have had award winning presenters who have given blurbs for our anthologies, acted as judges, and served as mentors to our group. As the conference grew and morphed into a state-respected conference, our group has become the place to be in Eastern North Carolina if you are a serious writer.
 
February 3rd, 2018 the Pamlico Writers’ Group will announce their first Heart of the Pamlico Poet Laureate at the Turnage Theater with live performances by the top five finalists.
 
March 23rd, 2018 will launch our Sixth Annual Pamlico Writers’ Conference with Keynote Speaker, Shelby Stephenson, 2015 North Carolina Poet Laureate.
 
March 24th, 2018 our Sixth Annual Pamlico Writers’ Conference, “Shape Shifting Your Writing: Transforming Your Writing for Other Successful Markets”

New Release: Messy Love by Stephanie Witter

 

It was messy.
It was raw.
It was love.

The first time I laid eyes on Wyatt Burton was outside of my biological mother’s house. Abandoning me twenty years ago, I never knew that meeting her would change my life so completely. In fact, there were many things that I never expected that day, but there were a few things I knew for sure. Nothing would ever be the same–not even me. And it was all about to get very MESSY.

WYATT

Marissa Thornton deserved so much. She was beautiful beyond reason and never took my shit. She drew me.

In HORROR PICKERS Howard Jackson examined and dissected forty horror films. This time in MEAN AND DARK, he also adds a few film noir favourites to the mix. All the selected movies have baffled people in trouble. But in examining the films Howard Jackson makes a bold attempt to explain what really haunts and perhaps inspires us. The combination of gloomy ideas, defiant opinion, perceptive analysis and sly humour makes MEAN AND DARK an addictive read and a must for film fans.

As before, the collection of films that Howard Jackson probes for meaning and ideas ranges from 1945 to the present day and includes dark and chilling cinema from the USA, Europe, UK, South America, Scandinavia and Asia. The list includes familiar favourites and some surprises.
