Our 5* Review for A Thousand Yesteryears by Mae Clair #ParanormalSuspense @MaeClair1

It’s been a while since I’ve stumbled upon a new review for A Thousand Yesteryears, the first book in my Point Pleasant series. Anita Dawes and Jaye Marie made my day with this fabulous review. The Mothman and I are delighted!

“Masterful, bone-chilling fiction…one intense thriller. A Thousand Yesteryears will keep you guessing, gasping and turning the pages for more.” —New York Times bestselling author Kevin O’Brien

Behind a legend lays the truth…

As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real . . .

Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of…

Whatever It Takes NOW AVAILABLE BANNER by EEVA

Hello everyone and welcome to the Release Day for my latest Psychological Thriller “Whatever It Takes”.

Whatever it Takes Book Cover for all posts.

BLURB:

James Kincaid had it all.

He’d made it to the ‘A’ list in Hollywood, a town that prized and idolized winners above all else. Three golden statuettes currently graced the mantle of his Los Angeles mansion. Next year’s Oscars held the sweet promise of more.

Then life began exacting a price that no man could be expected to pay as the people he cared about began dying and dying badly.

He couldn’t move on with his life or the dream without knowing why.

Andi O’Connor is the woman he’d hired to do ‘whatever it takes’ to find him the answers.

Could this disenchanted, street-hardened, ex-homicide cop uncover the truth without adding to the growing list of those already sacrificed on the altar of one besotted human’s insanity?

From Hollywood to New York, the…

Joan Hall (Blog)

Hello readers! It’s hard to believe four years have passed since I typed the last words of my first full-length novel, Unseen Motives. Even longer since the time I first conceived the idea, but on April 30, 2015, I finished the first draft of final scene.

What began as a planed stand-alone novel turned into my three-book Driscoll Lake Series. The third book is scheduled to release later this month.

In anticipation of the new release, you can pick up a copy of the eBook version of Unseen Motives for only .99 this month.

And you like to read mystery, suspense, or crime fiction here’s an opportunity to pick up some other .99 titles this month. I’m joining with Felony Fiction for a group promo. Just click this link or the graphic below for a complete list of available books.

And now, here’s the blurb:

New Pen Name and New Cover

I hope you are seeing this cover all over the blogosphere today, because this is the first glimpse of what is surely going to be an exceptional series by a highly talented author. I’ve already pre-ordered my copy. Check it out, go forth, and one-click!

Staci Troilo

Ciao, amici! Life’s been busy, and it just got CRAZY. My publisher moved the release date of my new book from October to May 7. May 7! That’s less than a month away! I’ve got so much pre-release work to do. Starting with a cover release. So… ta-da!

It’s it stunning? I’m so excited about it.

Let me back up a step. First, you’ll notice it does NOT say “Staci Troilo” on the cover. We’ve talked about this before, here and there or in passing. I’m writing under a pen name (D. L. Cross) for this series. We can talk more about that later, though.

Second, you’ll note an alien ship on the cover. Aliens, as in sci-fi. It’s not a genre people associate with the name Staci Troilo, which is one of the reasons I’m writing under a pen name. If you’re interested in science fiction and aliens, this…

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Like many bloggers do this time of year, I’ll be disappearing (mostly) offline until 2019 arrives with bright, shiny expectations. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I am now thoroughly entrenched in festivities. From listening to Christmas carols (Noel, O Holy Night, and Oh, Come All Ye Faithful rank as all-time favorites) to watching Christmas movies, wrapping presents, and even baking cookies, I’m enamored of the season.

I’m looking forward to spending time with extended family and celebrating long-standing traditions. However you celebrate your holidays, I wish you and your loved ones a magical Christmas, Happy New Year, and peace that transcends all.

Tortured Soul Available for Preorder

Staci Troilo’s TORTURED SOUL from her Medici Protectorate series is now available for pre-order! Don’t pass up the opportunity to reserve your copy of this phenomenal book. I had the pleasure of reading it during critique stage and it’s fabulous. I love this entire series and can’t recommend it highly enough. Check out the deets from Staci, then go forth and one-click!

Staci Troilo

Tortured Soul coverBittersweet. That’s the only way I can describe it. I’m proud to have completed the final installment of the Medici Protectorate series, but I love this world so much, I’m sorry to see it end.

Tortured Soul is the fourth novel in the series. It follows the final member of the Brotherhood (Roberto “Coz” Cozza) and the youngest Medici descendant (Antonia “Toni” Notaro) as they prepare to fight the ultimate battle between good and evil.

The Notaros want nothing to do with their legacy or the power at their disposal. The Brotherhood wants only to keep them safe. And the evil mastermind and the nefarious organization he represents want to use the Medici lineage in their quest for world domination—or kill the girls and their protectors for standing in the way. This fast-paced, emotional journey wraps up in a dramatic way. If you like passion, intrigue, and international mystery…

It’s been a whirlwind, but my tour for Cusp of Night ends with today’s stop at Julie Holmes blog. Julie is a fun and friendly writer who will be celebrating with her debut release soon.

Julie, thank you so much for inviting me to your blog today. I’ve been making the rounds with my latest novel, Cusp of Night, the first book in my new Hode’s Hill series. Although the first book in a three-book series, Cusp of Night is also a complete standalone read offering two mysteries in one. It features past and present timelines that ultimately converge at the end, tying both plots together.

Lucinda Glass, my main character in the past, becomes a renowned medium in the late 1800s. She’s lauded by the elite of society for seances and producing “automatic writings” in which she…

Greetings, everyone! ♥

Today I have the great pleasure of shining the spotlight on one of my favourite authors. After reading Eclipse Lake by Mae Clair, I became an instant fan of her work and brilliant writing style. Her writing is flawless, as she weaves elements of paranormal, mystery, suspense, and a dash of romance, taking readers on an always impressive journey.

After finishing the masterful Point Pleasant Series, I was thrilled to discover another supernatural suspense series was in the works. And, in true form, Mae delivered another can’t-put-down thrill ride. I’ll share my review in a future post!

In Cusp of Night, book one of the Hode’s Hill Series, Mae bridges past and present, mystery and urban legend in a supernatural suspense thriller you don’t want to miss.

Please join me in welcoming Author, Mae Clair!

Hello, and many thanks for allowing me to be your guest…

Fiend Fest

I’m visiting with Judi Lynn today and sharing a short excerpt from Cusp of Night set in the present. Most of my posts have been about the past and spiritualism, but this one focuses on my creature, “the Fiend.” If you get a moment I hope you’ll pop by and check it out.

I also highly recommend following Judi’s blog when visiting. She’s one of my sister authors with Kensington, and has written cross genre in urban fantasy and romance. She has a new cozy mystery series coming out this fall that eagerly I’m looking forward to and has an entertaining blog. Click “follow” while you’re there! 🙂

Judi Lynn

Today, I’d like to welcome Mae Clair as my guest.  I read Mae’s blog every week and enjoy it.  I’ve read a good share of her writing, too.  She writes paranormal suspense with a mix of eerie happenings and strong characters.  Her novel, CUSP OF NIGHT, came out June 12th.  I bought it and, for me, it was a five-star read.  I’ll let her tell you about it:

Thanks so much for having me as a guest on your blog today! I’ve been making the rounds with my newest release Cusp of Night. This is a book that blends past and present in a mystery/suspense theme, laced with paranormal elements. I’ve set the story in a fictional river town called Hode’s Hill. In the latter part of the nineteenth century, a devil-like creature terrorized the town and committed several horrific murders. The beast was never caught, but the legend remained.

I’m a huge fan of creatures and things that go bump-in-the-night. In 2013 and 2014, I took two trips to research the Mothman, a cryptid that featured into my POINT PLEASANT SERIES. For my HODE’S HILL SERIES, I needed a new creature. Rather than use…
