Sneak Peek: No Lulluby for Tommy

Today, we get a sneak-peek from Charles Hardman’s book, “No Lulluby for Tommy.”

Tommy has lost his wife, children, job, savings — basically his whole world. Nothing seems to go his way. Trying to change his life, he becomes a poker player. Tommy wins a very heated poker game against the son of a Chicago Mafia kingpin in Lake Tahoe. Then he joins up with the son’s hooker, who knows a few too many dirty little secrets about Chicago. A hit man is sent to kill the woman by the son’s father. After he fails and is killed, she and Tommy are forced to flee to Las Vegas. But the mob has placed a huge bounty on their lives. They team up with the hooker’s pimp and a police detective from Tahoe. Will they outsmart and escape the mobsters or are their lives fated to be ruled by Murphy’s Law?

Nicole Storey is Turned Into a Bean – an Inknbean!

Friend and author Nicole Storey shared some very exciting news: She has signed with Inknbeans Press for her first book, Grimsley Hollow-The Chosen One. Her exact words were, “SQUEE!!!”

She says she still smiles every time she thinks about it and is now in the process of having the e-mail framed. Okay, maybe I added that last part.  Inknbeans is a publishing company with an excellent reputation among indie authors.

I caught up with Nickie while she was out shopping for a new Ferrari (as far as you know). She said, “Am I a lucky girl or what? I know in my heart that I couldn’t have found a better bunch of people to help me take my book to levels that I have not been able to achieve on my own and I am so thankful!”

Nickie is a great friend to fellow authors, and I know she will not forget her friends down here in the trenches, what with Christmas right around the corner. (Ahem)

We wish Nickie the very best success, and look forward to hearing more from her as her work with Inknbeans progresses.

Meet the Author: Siobhán C Cunningham

Author Siobhán C. Cunningham

Author S.C. Cunningham writes with film in mind, as she says she worked in the music to film industry. She describes her work in movie styles,  “Think ‘Silence of the Lambs’ meets ‘Basic Instinct’ meets ‘Sex and the City.’ Terrifying thrills with intense sex and naughty chuckles.”

Siobhán says agents compare her style to that of Martina Cole, Karen Rose, and Jilly Cooper with added sex and laughter.  She says, “What sets me apart is that I throw the book at the readers, mixing fear, romance, sex, giggles and thought provoking questions.” Continue reading “Meet the Author: Siobhán C Cunningham”
