“The book is very vivid and the author
beautifully projects the details to make us not only see but also feel what
Alan was feeling. The fact that a female author accurately presented a male's
point of view is commendable. The end is definitely creepy and gave me
goosebumps . . .” -
Arushi Raj, Novel Worms



 



“A powerfully raw
psychological story about the harsh realities and consequences of exploitation.
I am glad I read it.”
– Anita Hawes, Author

I’m doing a special promotion this weekend on Amazon. For two days, October 18 and 19, you can download your own copy of “The Beach,” a supernatural, sci-fi suspense thriller.

Here are the links:

Amazon US link:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B008X76CD6

Amazon UK link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Beach-ebook/dp/B008X76CD6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1344903419&sr=8-1

And a little bit about the story . . .

Alan loves the beach. More than a weekend respite, it is his home, his refuge, his sanctuary. And for most of the year, he strolls the sand in blissful solitude, letting nature—and no one else—touch him. But spring has given way to summer, and soon, the annual invasion of vacationers and tourists will subdivide the beach with blankets, umbrellas, and chairs, depriving Alan of his privacy and seclusion—the fundamental touchstones of his life.

Resigned to endure another seasonal onslaught of beach-goers, Alan believes there is nothing he can do but prepare for the worst. 

But fate has other plans.

Delivered to him on the crest of a rogue wave, the strange object appears to have no purpose, no practical use—until Alan accidentally discovers what waits inside. Now he must attempt to unravel an ageless mystery, unaware that the final outcome will change his life, and the beach, forever.

In the companion novella “Short Time,” you’ll meet a respectable but bored middle-class executive, who exchanges his future for six months of excess and extravagance, only to find out the price he must pay for his hedonistic indulgence is beyond anything he could have imagined.

                                                             *   *   *  * 

Hope you have a chance to check it out – enjoy the read!

Until next time,

Jaye

The Possibilities of Amy" received a wonderful review today - thank you, David! Here's the link:

www.goodreads.com/review/show/731202077

"Amy" is one of my more personal efforts, and was inspired by a chance encounter that occured while attending a high school class reunion. Here's a short synopsis of the story:

Amy is the ultimate trophy girl—gorgeous face, killer body, and a vivacious personality. But there’s something else about her, something that makes her even more special. Amy is new. A transfer student from out of state, she’s starting her senior year without knowing a soul. And that means she’s up for grabs, available.

Infatuated from the moment he sees her, David is determined to meet Amy, and if the fates are willing, to spend the rest of his life with her. But his shyness prevents him from approaching her—until his friends devise a contest to determine who will be the first to prove their manhood by seducing her.

Ever wondered what might have been, how your life might have turned out differently, if only you'd made a different choice?

Until next time,
Jaye
