A Few Lines From Deadly Consequences by Jude Pittman


A shot rang out from the direction of the stables. Kelly leapt out of his chair, grabbed the gun out of his jacket pocket and slapped the screen door open.

“What the damn hell?” He yelled as he raced towards the brood barn, where Jake, alerted by the gunshot, stood in front of the closed doors barking like a beast gone rabid.

“Easy boy,” Kelly said, approaching the door with his weapon drawn. “Gilly, you okay in there?” Kelly reached the door and pulled the handle. It held fast. Someone had apparently locked it from inside.

“Gillian?” Kelly called in a voice laced with fear and Jake once again started his frantic barking.

“Okay. Stand down.” Kelly spoke to the dog, then placed his ear against the door and listened.

From inside came the sounds of sobbing.

“Gillian.” Kelly yelled again. “For God’s sake, open the

BLUE LIONESS in now in paperback as well - by Vijaya Schartz

Now the CHRONICLES OF KASSOUK series is available in paperback as well as all formats of eBooks. BLUE LIONESS, Book 4, just came out today in print. If you prefer paperbacks, or if you like to keep your favorites on a physical shelf, here is the link to get it.

Black Sword Captain Ariela of Kassouk suspects the king’s death is no accident. And the tyrant who usurped the throne looks guilty as hell. In the face of Human slavery, Ariela must do the unthinkable. Rebel against the Mutant regime. But she cannot do it alone.

Desperate for help, Ariela hopes Lord Starro, the handsome Crown Prince of the Star Children, can provide the technology the Human faction lacks. But can Ariela trust a spoiled, arrogant foreign prince who never fought a battle, and thinks he is destined to rule the universe? No matter how kind, handsome, or fascinating, Starro has frightening mental abilities. And this alliance is not safe, especially for Ariela’s heart.

A few lines from JEWISH SOUL – By Rita Karnopp


Book #3 of the Tango of Death Series
By Rita Karnopp

Mayla watched the girls head for the bushes. She turned toward the men. “If nothing else, everything will be worth it if we manage to save their lives. If any of us is captured, we must die before breathing a word about the twins.”

She stretched out her hand and Chester placed his on top and Stane placed his below. “In the midst of all this evil . . . this is our one good.” Mayla smiled as they nodded in agreement.

A few lines from Exposure, by Lisabet Sarai....

The back door, I discover, is unlocked. I’m one hundred percent certain I didn’t leave it that way. Carefully, keeping my body behind the door, I scan the yard. The light filtering from the kitchen windows is bright enough for me to see that there is no one in my little square of turf. It also shows me crushed tomato plants and bean vines torn from their trellises, clearly marking the intruder’s escape route.

At that point, my rage finally overwhelms my fear. I pour myself a finger of scotch and sit at the kitchen table, simmering in helpless anger and vowing some kind of revenge.

Then a horrible thought crosses my mind. Jimmy knew I would be out tonight. He was the only one who knew. Was it possible that he was involved in all this, somehow? Is it possible that smiling Jimmy might have betrayed me?

The balance shifts again. Shudders shake my body. Sitting alone under the fluorescent lights, gripping my drink, I am paralyzed by the realization that I don’t know who I can trust. If anyone.

A few lines from The Color of Seven by Gail Roughton

The Dark Series:  The Color of Seven

He walked up to a little backwoods Alabama black Church. Seven Cedars Baptist. It stood right outside Seven Cedars, Alabama. He laughed. “Be you de sebbenth son of a sebbenth son, boy?” Well, maybe he was, maybe he wasn’t. Sounded good, though. He went inside to join the ongoing service. Within a month, he’d collected a group of ten or so of the black community’s finest young men. He met with them down by the banks of Seven Cedar Creek.

“My name be Cain,” he announced. “An’ my color be sebben.”
