#GuestPost from Diane May Debut #author of EVO #CrimeFiction @dianemaywriter

I’m delighted to welcome Diane May, author of EVO, with a guest post, but first heres the book info.

A covert CIA operation that involves genetic engineering.

A serial killer nicknamed “The Hypnotist”.

What if someone could take complete control over your mind?

And what if that someone was a serial killer?

Langley, Virginia, twenty years earlier:

John Blake, a CIA special agent, stumbles upon an illegal genetic experiment within the agency, conducted on unborn babies and officially presented as a fertility program designed to help couples get pregnant. When he realizes that his very own daughter is a product of this sinister plot and that she is in grave danger, he vows to do everything it takes to make sure Maya will be safe and the people behind the experiment will all pay. With their lives.

Verona, Italy, present time:

Livio Marchiori, a homicide detective with the highest rate of solved cases in Verona, is faced with The Hypnotist, a serial killer the likes of which he’s never seen before. He never touches his victims and he leaves no evidence behind, except for the detailed videos of his murders. And what Marchiori and his team see on those videos is more disturbing than all their other cases combined. Because this one is different. This one defies all rational thinking and borders the impossible.

Then The Hypnotist gets personal and threatens to kill Dr. Abby Jones, the chief medical examiner and the woman Marchiori is in love with. Caught in a cat-and-mouse game with the elusive killer, Marchiori knows he is quickly running out of time.

So when Captain Victor Miller from Interpol walks into town, Marchiori is more than happy to partner again with the man who two years ago helped him put an entire mafia clan behind bars. But Miller has his own agenda, and Marchiori soon discovers that there is more to these crimes than meets the eye, an entire thread of things way beyond his pay grade – illegal experiments, secret agencies, and the most terrifying threat humanity has to face.

Blog Tour #GuestPost from Richard Williams #author of Mostyn Thomas and the Big Rave @Graffeg_books #DebutNovel

Im delighted to be joining the blog tour for Mostyn Thomas and the Big Rave, and sharing a guest post from Richard Williams…

Time and Space in the Writing Process

I think it’s always good to deliberate the impact of ‘distance’ (time and space) and its benefits in enabling a story (particularly those based on real events) to become far richer than if it had been written at the time of the novel’s setting. Hindsight can be a wonderful thing. To see how places and people evolved over time after the novel setting can give a more informed perspective on the real significance of those events brought to life in the novel, and their lasting impact on their environment.

Birthday Blog Blitz for Visions of Zarua by Suzanne Rogerson #GuestPost @rararesources #FridayReads

I’m delighted to be part of the birthday blog blitz for Visions of Zarua, courtesy of Rachel’s Random Resources.

Suzanne Rogerson tells us about Visions of Zarua’s unexpected route into traditional publishing….

First let me share a little of the history behind Visions of Zarua. It’s my debut novel, though I do have a couple of unsuccessful fantasy attempts hidden away. Back in 2013, I submitted it to a few agents and a publisher. Without finding any success with them, I decided to use a critique service to see where it was going wrong. The critique was spot on with the various issues in the book and I rewrote it into its current form.

#GuestPost from J. Lee #author of Debut Thriller The Hubley Case #Extract @JLeeauthor #TuesdayBookBlog

I’m delighted to welcome Justin Lee with a guest post about writing and publishing his debut novel with a full time job and a young family. First, though, here’s what the book is about…

American businessman Peter Hubley lays sprawled across the floor of a Brazilian airport, cappuccino dripping down what remains of his forehead. Within an hour, his killers are dead and their bodies stolen. When an organized crime syndicate claims responsibility for the savage murder, questions are raised and the case is assigned to Special Agent Nikki Benton.

To Benton, a straight-laced FBI veteran, the Hubley case is an unusual and much-anticipated opportunity to prove herself and get out from under the thumb of her misogynistic boss. But she quickly realizes that nothing about it adds up and she may be in over her head. Her instincts prove true when her prime suspect Ben Siebert, a rebellious ex-Marine with a questionable past, is pressing a Glock 27 to her temple.

The two are forced to work together when they learn that everything – the death of the killers, the public’s assumption Hubley was hiding something, even the case being assigned to Benton – was part of a carefully orchestrated plan…and that they are the next targets. But to stop a formidable perpetrator intent on killing thousands of innocent people, they must risk everything and reveal the shocking truth behind the Hubley case.

The book is due for release on November 6th on Amazon UK and Amazon US 

Now over to Justin….
