JET by Russell Blake

JET – the code name of a former Mossad operative who faked her own death to escape the clandestine life. But the past doesn’t let go of its secrets easily, and when old enemies hunt her down she is forced to kill or be killed in a deadly conflict that spans the globe. A breakneck thriller in the tradition of Bourne and Bond, JET is a non-stop adrenaline rush that redefines the genre.

Irretrievably Broken by Melissa F. Miller

Irretrievably Broken features the return of fierce and fearless attorney Sasha McCandless. Someone’s killing the female partners at her old firm, and she’s asked to represent their accused husbands. The cases put a strain on her own relationship, but that’s the least of her troubles, because the real killer is waging a vendetta for a past case gone wrong: and there’s one more lawyer on his list.

Never Go Home by L.T. Ryan

When a woman is found brutally murdered in a small Florida town, Jack Noble breaks his vow to never return home in order to assist the local sheriff with her investigation. As the hunt for the killer intensifies, Jack realizes his past as a government assassin has come back to haunt those closest to him.

The Critical Element by John L. Betcher

The theft of a mysterious meteor leads Beck, Beth, Gunner and Bull to uncover a terror plot that threatens the country’s largest shopping mall. Meanwhile, the FBI, CDC and CIA attempt to defuse a large-scale biological attack and avert a crippling pandemic.

The Dark Path by Luke Romyn

Vain, a man versed in torture and death, is chosen to protect a boy whose sacrifice will release Satan’s lieutenant from the pits of Hell. Armageddon sits upon the horizon and all that stands in its way is a man whose path has always been dark.

Thirteen to None by Claude Bouchard

Home invasions were the new pastime for Butch Kincaid and his criminal crew during their nomadic summer vacations… Drunken orgies of terror, destruction, rape and murder… Until they chose the wrong home…

The Devil’s Cauldron by Michael Wallace

Paralyzed and locked in, Meggie can’t tell anyone what really happened the night of her accident seven years earlier. Now, for the first time, there’s hope for a cure — and there are those who will kill to keep it away from her…

Crazy Days in Big Lake by Nick Russell

Everybody seems to have gone crazy in Big Lake; neighbors are threatening violence, eco-protestors are on the march, flower children are camping in the forest, the grocery store manager has locked himself in his office and won’t come out, bears are chasing dogs into houses, and a retired couple have shot an intruder during a home invasion. By the time it’s over more blood will be shed and the good people of Big Lake will be left wondering just how well they really know their neighbors.

The Delilah Complex by MJ Rose

The Scarlet Society is a secret club of twelve powerful and sexually adventurous women. But when a photograph of the body of one of the men they’ve recruited to dominate is sent to the New York Times, they are shocked and frightened. Unable to cope with the tragedy, the women turn to NYC sex therapist Dr. Morgan Snow. But their grief counseling quickly becomes a murder investigation.

our times

about these things

wourtimes

Our Times are in Thy hand
1. Our times are in Thy hand;
O God, we wish them there;
Our lives, our souls, our all, we leave
Entirely to Thy care.
2. Our times are in Thy hand:
Whatever they may be;
Pleasing or painful, dark or bright,
As best may seem to Thee.
3. Our times are in Thy hand;
Why should we doubt or fear?
A father’s hand will never cause
His child a needless tear.
4. Our times are in Thy hand;
Jesus, the Crucified,
Whose hand our many sins have pierced,
Is now our guard and guide.
5. Our times are in Thy hand;
We’ll always trust to Thee,
Till we possess the promised crown,
And all Thy glory see.

Troll Reviewers

Image

Definition:

1. A person who has no life.

2. A censor whose only goal is a bash any book that may contain content that they disprove of.

3. A grammar Nazi.

4. Generally gives 1 star reviews.

5. Works for or has written a book similar to the one they are bashing in order to lower the books rankings.

6. To make themselves feel as if they have control over something.

7. Uses aliases.

8. Has not read the book they are bashing with the one star review.

9. Uses the same review for all their reviews. Cut and paste, (These are actual one star reviews on books with dozens of great reviews including more then 10 – 5 star reviews. Typo’s and punctuation not altered).

there are too many misspellings in this book to enjoy it. it seems like it was never read before being uploaded to ****** and that’s a shame because I liked the idea behind the story. Unfortunately I don’t think I managed to read more than 10-15 pages before I had to quit out of disgust for the authors lack of understanding of how the English language is used!

Or

I should have figured that I wouldn’t like it from the awkward title. But I gave it a chance; didn’t get very far into it and had to quit. First of all, it was written in the present tense, which to me sounds juvenile. Then I couldn’t get past the need for editing. It was so full of errors in sentence structure, punctuaton, grammar and spelling that it was hard to get past these distractions.

Or

This very short book is full of typos and wrong words. Plus it doesn’t tell a story that makes sense. Skip this one.

These same reviews, word for word, can be found on two of my books.

10. Trolls turn to stone when the light shines on them.

I guess you could look at these Trolls in two different ways.

1. They are called Trolls, because like their dim-witted cousins, they are dim-witted, cause panic, and raise the stress levels of the authors they review.

2. They are like fisherman trolling about and when they catch a book who is ranked higher than theirs, or one they fear may out sale or out produce their own they bash it.

What can be done?

Nothing really…they use aliases. They set up false accounts and then bash away.

In all fairness to these Trolls…they do a service, sort of. In my case, it made me look a lot closer at how I edit, although I disagree with their techniques. Before I found out these were Troll reviews I panicked. I had a couple of three star reviews that indicated editing issues, so I figured these 1 star reviews were just part of the learning curve. I hired an editor. Believe me I needed one. My books are looking much better, but you know, they really were not bad before and my editor concurred.

So what do I do about those reviews, nothing. What can you do? I pray for better reviews to offset the bad ones.

In Daewoo, Vincent – the Main Character, is a Customer Service Agent who kills angry callers. Maybe I should write a squeal along the same lines, Daewoo – Night of the Trolls. A simple story about Killing Trolls…Hmmm, I’ll have to give that some thought.

The Tube Riders (The Tube Riders Trilogy #1) [Kindle Edition]

Beneath the dark streets of London they played a dangerous game with trains. Now it is their only chance for survival…

Britain in 2075 is a dangerous place. A man known only as the Governor rules the country with an iron hand, but within the towering perimeter walls of London Greater Urban Area anarchy spreads unchecked through the streets.

In the abandoned London Underground station of St. Cannerwells, a group of misfits calling themselves the Tube Riders seek to forget the chaos by playing a dangerous game with trains. Marta is their leader, a girl haunted by her brother’s disappearance. Of the others, Paul lives only to protect his little brother Owen, while Simon is trying to hold on to his relationship with Jess, daughter of a government official. Guarding them all is Switch, a man with a flickering eye and a faster knife, who cares only about preserving the legacy of the Tube Riders. Together, they are family.

Everything changes the day they are attacked by a rival gang. While escaping, they witness an event that could bring war down on Mega Britain. Suddenly they are fleeing for their lives, pursued not only by their rivals, but by the brutal Department of Civil Affairs, government killing machines known as Huntsmen, and finally by the inhuman Governor himself.

Excerpt from The Tube Riders (Chapter One)

“As the others said their goodbyes and left, Marta stood for a moment, looking out across the park towards the huge elevated highway overpass that rose above the city to the south. Half finished, it arched up out of the terraces and housing blocks to the east, rising steadily to a height of five hundred feet. There, at the point where it should have begun its gradual decent to the west, it just ended, sawn off, amputated.

Years ago, she remembered her father standing here with her, telling her about the future. Things had been better then. She’d still been going to school, still believed the world was good, still had dreams about getting a good job like a lawyer or an architect and hadn’t started to do the deplorable things that made her wake up shivering, just to get food or the items she needed to survive.

He had taken her hand and given it a little squeeze. She still remembered the warmth of his skin, the strength and assurance in those fingers. With his other arm he had pointed up at the overpass, in those days busy with scaffolding, cranes and ant-like construction workers, and told her how one day they would take their car, and drive right up over it and out of the city. The government was going to open up London Greater Urban Area again, he said. Let the city people out, and the people from the Greater Forest Areas back in. The smoggy, grey skies of London GUA would clear, the sirens would stop wailing all night, and people would be able to take the chains and the deadlocks off their doors. She remembered how happy she’d felt with her father’s arms around her, holding her close, protecting her.

But something had happened. She didn’t know everything – no one did – but things had changed. The government hadn’t done any of those things. The construction stopped, the skies remained grey, and life got even worse. Riots waited around every street corner. People disappeared without warning amid tearful rumours that the Huntsmen were set to return.

Marta sighed, biting her lip. Her parents and her brother were gone. Marta was just twenty-one, but St. Cannerwells Park was the closest she would ever get to seeing the countryside, and the euphoria of tube riding was the closest she would ever get to happiness.

She gripped the fence with both hands and gritted her teeth, trying not to cry. She was tough. She had adjusted to Mega Britain’s harshness, was accustomed to looking after herself, but just sometimes, life became too much to bear.”
