Check out "Blogging - a Lonely Hobby?" my monthly post at The Indie Exchange.
I started a new feature yesterday - The Sunday Sale Page - to highlight free and discounted books. The sales are going on all week. If you are an author who would like their book included email me with the Title, Buy Link, and Coupon Code (if applicable). If it's a discount, please indicate the percentage.
You will see not much reading got done this week, which is killing me because the books are really good. But I've taken on a few clients for GWR Publicity and they are keeping me busy. I've started a Facebook Group for bloggers interested in working with my authors. I would love to have you join.
Currently, I'm working on general publicity with Terri Morgan, author of Playing the Genetic Lottery (learn more here). If you would like to review the book or host Terri on your blog, please let me know.
I'm also organizing a new middle grades tour for Jeff Gunhus, author of Jack Templar Monster Hunter. You can learn more about the book and sign up for the tour here.
November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). It can be a stressful time for a writer, but also a super productive time as there is a lot of encouragement and activities. To limit the stress and to include bloggers, The IndieExchange is hosting NaNoTIEMo. Each week there is a check-in and mini-challenge, plus a book giveaway.
A couple of Christmas themed blog hops are coming up if you are interested:
All Pets Want for Christmas hosted by Vickie Johnstone and David Brown on Dec. 8
Meet the Family Holiday Hop hosted by Terri Giuliano Long Dec. 10 -13
Before Robert Littell vaulted onto the bestseller lists with The Company, The Amateur, which has been long out of print, established him as a contemporary master of the espionage thriller. In this sleek and murderous novel, Charlie Heller is an ace cryptographer for the CIA, a quiet man in a quiet back-office job. But when his fiancée is murdered by terrorists and the Agency decides not to pursue her killers, Heller takes matters into his own hands. The fact that he is an amateur makes him all the more dangerous. Mind-blowing in its intelligence, pulse-pounding in its suspense, The Amateur is a stunner. From Goodreads.com

But wait, wasn’t Ventura the serial killer convicted of killing five children, even though they only found four bodies a few years back?

Clinical psychologist Tony Hill has had a good run. He and police detective Carol Jordan have put away scores of dangerous criminals and have a clearance rate that colleagues envy or resent. But there is one serial killer who has shaped and defined their careers, a person whose evil surpasses all others: Jacko Vance, an ex-celebrity and sociopath whose brilliance and utter lack of remorse have never left Tony’s mind in the ten years Vance has been locked up. Now Jacko has broken out of prison and, with a mind even more twisted and cunning than before, he is focused on wreaking revenge on Tony and Carol for the years he has spent in prison. They don’t know when Jacko will strike, or where. All they know is that he will cause them to feel fear like they’ve never known.
