Anna Walls (AnnaLWalls) Well, if I could find a publisher, I'd be posting a fiction story that might fit in here too.


Steven (TBones) | 392 comments http://www.stevensaylor.com/RomaSubRo...

Hey I thought I should share this author's website link. He doesn't have a spot on Goodreads right now but is a very good author. I just finished a short story of his and found it most entertaining to read. So I hope you all enjoy this link.


Connie Gotsch (ConnieGotsch) | 8 comments I'm Connie Gotsch and my mystery Snap Me a Future from dlsijpress.com mixes romance with cozy and psychological thriller. It's set in New Mexico and the heroine is a newspaper reporter. She finds herself on a pueblito in the backcountry facing a knife wielding antiquities hunter. Fortunately her Setterdor comes to the rescue. This is not a mythical animal. I actually had one. Snap Me a Future is available in paper and in e-format at dlsijpress.com


James Thane (JamesLThane) | 8 comments Hi all. I'm Jim Thane. I'm new to Goodreads, but I think it's a great concept and I'm looking forward to participating in the discussions. My new book, "No Place To Die" is a thriller set in Phoenix, AZ, and will be published by Dorchester in August. If you'd like a sneak preview, you can find an excerpt on my website, www.jameslthane.com.


J.R. | 167 comments Hi. I'm J. R. Lindermuth and I write the Sticks Hetrick mystery series set in small-town Pennsylvania. There are currently three books, Something in Common, Cruel Cuts and Corruption's Child. I have a contract for the fourth, Being Someone Else, and am awaiting publication date. The novels are available in print and electronic form. Check them out here: http://whiskeycreekpress.com/authors/...


Caroline Shearer (carolineshearer) Hi!
My name is Caroline Shearer, and I am the author of Adventures of a Lightworker: Dead End Date, which is the first in a series. I'm working on the second book now. The lightworker element plays out through the series, and each book functions on its own as a mystery.

Adventures of a Lightworker: Dead End Date
A woman named Faith is jolted from her simple existence when she learns she is a lightworker, an evolved soul sent to Earth to increase love. Complicating this startling news is the revelation that she hasn't been fulfilling her life's purpose and has one year to prove herself - or be pulled from her assignment! As Faith confronts this daunting task, she faces very human concerns, including releasing her own negativity, searching for love, and even a dead blind date! How will Faith fare as she begins her spiritual journey and finds her gifts tested beyond anything she's known?

Wendy Webb (WendyWebb) | 10 comments The Tale of Halcyon Crane: A Novel by Wendy Webb

The Tale of Halcyon Crane is the eerie, gothic mystery involving a woman whose life is upended when a letter arrives in the morning mail. It regrets to inform her of the death of her mother... but she was told her mother died in a fire 30 years earlier. She soon learns that the whole foundation of her life has been a lie — her mother didn't die all those years ago. Instead, her father abducted her as a child, changed their identities and moved across the country. She travels to her mother's home, a beautiful and remote island in the middle of the Great Lakes, to find answers to what happened all those years ago. She finds secrets, betrayal and some otherworldly twists along the way.

Halcyon has been selected as an IndieNext Pick, a Midwest Connections Pick, a Great Lakes Great Reads pick, and is a finalist for the Michigan Book Award.

Reviews:

"I love a good, spooky ghost story that carries you deep into the darkest night and raises goose bumps and neck hair. First-time novelist Wendy Webb’s book, The Tale of Halcyon Crane, does all those things with the seamless intricacy of a clockmaker and the silky smoothness of a baby's cheek. Webb hits every note just right.
It’s hard to read a story like this and not compare the author to Stephen King, so I'm not going to do much of that, other than to say Webb carries a lot of the same power in her words." — BlogCritic; Seattle Post Intelligencer


Mark Cotton (MarkCotton) | 2 comments Two Bits Four Bits by Mark CottonTwo Bits Four Bits by Mark Cotton

Hi, I'm Mark Cotton and I'm the author of Two Bits Four Bits, which is available in paperback at Amazon.com and as an eBook at Amazon.com and Smashwords.com. The eBook is currently priced at $.99.

Buddy Griffin, a recently retired homicide detective, returns to his hometown of Elmore, Texas to attend a high-school reunion and becomes embroiled in a murder investigation when his high school sweetheart finds her husband, the president of the local bank, shot dead in their swimming pool.

Rumors of the dead man's infidelities lead Buddy to a missing female bank teller and a safe deposit box full of dirty money linked to the local mob. As he digs deeper, Buddy discovers the real motive for the murder may stem from a struggle for control of a twenty-year-old videotape of a United States Senator with an underage prostitute. And, he stirs up trouble when he pays a visit to a crime boss with a connection to the case. Buddy is forced to broker a deal with the devil to prevent more innocent people from being killed.

Two Bits Four Bits is a mystery set in the flat dry landscape of West Texas where the horizon is defined by pump jacks and oilfield equipment instead of trees and hills, and blackmail is a game best left to professionals.

T.L. Haddix (TLHaddix) | 41 comments Hello, all. I'd like to mention my novel, Secrets In The Shadows. It's a mystery, takes place in a small southern Indiana town along the Ohio River, and is the first in a series called Leroy's Sins, each of which will feature the town's residents (different main characters in each book with some recurring). There are four books as of now planned in the series, with free short stories that will be released in between the books. The second book, Under The Moon's Shadow, is slated for release in August 2010. Here's a little more info about the first book, Secrets In The Shadows.

Everyone has secrets. Don’t you? Most of our secrets are harmless. Sometimes, however, those hidden truths come back to haunt us. Sometimes they even kill…

When long-held secrets come to light in the small town of Leroy, Indiana, death and destruction aren’t far behind. Can the residents overcome their pasts, enabling them to rebuild and face the future, or will the secrets lurking in the shadows rise up to swallow them whole?

Gallery owner Charity Vaughn had a closet full of secrets. Hiding underneath her polished exterior was a terrified girl with a past. When the life she’d tried so hard to make disappear is revealed, Charity won’t be the only one to feel the repercussions.

Lauren Grant didn’t expect her inner demon to rear its ugly head, threatening to destroy everything she had worked so hard to build, but that is exactly what happened. She never expected her secrets to be revealed for all the world to see, but they were. Now the single mother has to try and put the pieces of her life back together. Hopefully she won’t die trying.

Charlie Clark moved back to his hometown to repay an old debt, still looking for that elusive ‘something’ his heart was calling for. He never expected to find that ‘something’ in Leroy, the town he had left years before because of the heartache and memories. Now that hope for the future is being threatened. Will Charlie be able to stop the threat in time, or will he lose everything again?

Come to Leroy, Indiana, and find out who survives…and who doesn’t.

"Secrets" is available at Amazon, BN.com and Smashwords, where the largest excerpt and the free short story "Granny Theft Auto" can be found. Here's a link: http://www.smashwords.com/profile/vie...

Thanks for stopping by!

Christopher S. | 4 comments I'd like to introduce myself and my online crime/mystery novel, Only Money.
Not all debts can be repaid with money. Ex-cop turned attorney Neville Hartley agrees to help Nicky Findlay’s father out of a mortgage scam with a shady lender. Beautiful Arizona Douglas, an aging, down and out exec, assists Neville in an attempt to redeem her shattered life. Arizona helps Neville use his unerring (sometimes) sixth sense to come up with a scam where the bad guys are the marks.

Enjoy!

Susan Albert | 2 comments I have a new mystery series I'd like you to know about. The first book: The Darling Dahlias and the Cucumber Tree was just published and has earned starred reviews from Booklist and Library Journal. The series is set in the fictional southern Alabama town of Darling during the Depression and features the Dahlias, the ladies of the local garden club.

Here's part of the Library Journal review: The author of the popular China Bayles mysteries brings a small Southern town to life and vividly captures an era and culture--the Depression, segregation, class differences, the role of women in the South--with authentic period details. Her book fairly sizzles with the strength of the women of Darling."

If you're reading the book, let me know how you like it!


J.R. | 167 comments Whiskey Creek Press has just published Being Someone Else, fourth in my Sticks Hetrick mystery series, which is set in a (fictional) rural community near Harrisburg PA.

Jeanette (httpwwwgoodreadscomJFratto) | 23 comments Hello Everyone, I'm new to Goodreads and look forward to sharing ideas and books with other readers and authors. My novel, NO STONE UNTURNED, was published at the end of last year. It is a mystery/romance set in southern California and is told through the adventures of probation officer Linda Davenport. I had a 26 year career in the probation system so the reader can be assured they will get accurate knowledge of this aspect of law enforcement, while reading an engrossing story line. Please visit my website: http://outskirtspress.com/nostoneuntu... for a synopsis and bio of me. Hope to hear from others in this group.

Jeanette (httpwwwgoodreadscomJFratto) | 23 comments Hi L.J.,

It was nice reading about you. I'll be starting my second book soon, a sequel to NO STONE UNTURNED. The formation of a plot is slowing me down a bit, although I have a pretty good idea of where I want to go with this book, tentatively titled NO GOOD DEED. You seem to be in a good writing groove and I plan to read one of your books. The reviews sound great. Visit me at http://Jeanettethewriter.blogspot.com

Sharon (SCPennington) | 21 comments Thanks for providing this forum, Vincent! My novel Hoodoo Money was released by the small indie house, Draumr Publishing, in 2008 - and its sequel Mangroves and Monsters in 2009. I'm presently working on the third book in this series.

Tom Wiseman | 5 comments Hello all,
Good to be here and glad to be able to see so many new faces.

A little about myself.
My first novel, Grey Skies Ahead was published on Amazon on Sep 31st and then published over on Smashwords. The short, short synopsis is it's a mystery about a new private pilot who unknowingly gets involved with a small group of terrorists working in the U.S.

It's a little rough, but what I've learned from it has been applied to my second novel, Humanoids, which is a sci-fi thriller set in the 22nd century and I hope to have ready in early of 2011.

I hope you'll stop by and at least check out the sample chapters, or feel free to stop by my official website: http://home.comcast.net/~vern_49/GSA....

Thanks,
Tom Wiseman


Karen | 7 comments Hi!

My first novel, Take the Monkeys and Run is a humorous mystery featuring soccer-mom and movie lover, Barbara Marr. It is available for Kindle, Nook and in paperback from both Amazon and B&N.com. It was a 2009 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Contest Semi-finalist, and so far is collecting some wonderful Amazon Customer reviews, for which I am both very proud and thankful!

Here is a description:


Film lover Barbara Marr is a typical suburban mom living the typical suburban life in her sleepy little town of Rustic Woods, Virginia. Typical, that is until she sets out to find the missing link between a bizarre monkey sighting in her yard and the bone chilling middle-of-the-night fright fest at the strangely vacant house next door. When Barb talks her two friends into some seemingly innocent Charlie’s Angels-like sleuthing, they stumble upon way more than they bargained for and uncover a piece of neighborhood history that certain people would kill to keep on the cutting room floor.

Enter sexy PI Colt Baron, Barb’s ex-boyfriend who would love to be cast as new leading man, filling the role just vacated by her recently estranged husband, Howard. When Colt flies in from out of town to help Barb, events careen out of control and suddenly this mini-van driving mother of three becomes a major player in a treacherous and potentially deadly FBI undercover operation. It’s up to her now. With little time to spare, she and she alone, must summon the inner strength necessary to become a true action heroine and save the lives of those she loves. The question is can she get them out alive before the credits roll?

As part of the ABNA, a Publishers Weekly reviewer called it "an outright treat: diverting, funny and fast-moving."

If you like funny mysteries, I hope you'll give it a try! And you can always read the first chapter for free at my website: http://www.karencantwell.com.

Thanks!

Susan Gottfried (WestofMars) | 68 comments Clearly, Dr. Alex, I need to spend some therapy time with you, as I'd been fairly convinced you were a fictional character. And thus, I need to apologize for shoving you so haphazardly on my bedside table. That position you wound up in this morning, when I got up to shower, must have been fairly uncomfortable, given where the remotes ended up.

Betty (nightreader) | 56 comments I'm Betty Gelean and I'm a reader, and a beginning writer but I only have a children's picture book nearing publication. But wait! I'm actually published! I am in an anthology called "The Coffee Shop Chronicles Vol. 1: Oh, The Places I have Bean". This was a contest where they called for either a paragraph or a page story featuring the line "over a cup of coffee" and mine was one that was chosen!
Well, what can I say, it's a beginning! It's available through "A Word With You Press".
Susan, I love your humor!


Patricia Rockwell (par2323) | 11 comments Please check out my cozy mystery "Sounds of Murder."

"Sounds of Murder" tells a tale of academic intrigue and death. At Grace University, a small southern college, no one in the Psychology Department likes Charlotte Clark, so no one is particularly upset when she is found murdered in the department’s million-dollar computer lab. But because she discovered the body, Associate Professor Pamela Barnes feels obligated to find Charlotte’s killer, and when she discovers a recording of the murder that was accidentally produced during Charlotte’s struggle with the killer, she begins her own investigation. Along the way, Pamela agonizes with her own conscience, fights her growing fear, attempts to understand her mysterious Department Chair, keeps her curious colleagues informed, placates her protective husband, and avoids antagonizing a local rube detective who belittles her efforts--all while she struggles to make sense of the sounds on the recording. As she gets deeper and deeper into her analysis—trying to connect what she hears in the recording with sounds from people (and potential killers) around her--she gets closer and closer to the killer, who unbeknownst to her, is observing Pamela’s efforts to find the killer, and resolving to prevent her. When Pamela finally identifies the one sound on the tape that positively identifies the killer, she works with the detective to trick the killer into a confession.

"Sounds of Murder" is available at:

Betty (nightreader) | 56 comments Thanks for visiting my blog, Patricia. Someday I hope to be one who writes rather than one who reads. ;-)
For those who are interested in reading my review it can be found here "Sounds of Murder".

A lot of people think of forensic studies as simply what the coroner does or what they see on "Bones" and "CSI", but there are many forms of forensic solving of cases, including in this case, sound. Others I have read are forensic geology, handwriting, skeletons, cadavers, and various others. I find them all very interesting. Anyone know of any others that have been used in cozies?


Jeanette (httpwwwgoodreadscomJFratto) | 23 comments Hi Patricia, "Sounds of Murder" sounds like my kind of book and I'll add it to my bookshelf. I like your bio as well. I'd like to invite you to visit my blog. It is: http://Jeanettethewriter.blogspot.com
I'm trying to develop it into a forum where we can share ideas about writing, publishing, and promoting. If you wish to follow it you'd be welcome. Good luck in your writing.


Patricia Rockwell (par2323) | 11 comments Hi, Jeannette,
I did indeed check out your blog and "followed" you too. Please keep in touch. I agree that newbie mystery writers should stick together.


Jeanette (httpwwwgoodreadscomJFratto) | 23 comments Thanks Patricia,

I look forward to us sharing ideas. I'm also interested in your publisher. My novel NO STONE UNTURNED is a cozy mystery too. I've written to them for submission guidelines for my second novel, which will be a sequel.


Thomas (Merlyn74) | 34 comments Hi Jeanette,

I agree. My first novel-length fiction (Piety and Murder) will be published by LazyDay on Dec. 1. The publisher is working on book cover and trailer now. I can hardly wait--
Your idea is great. I think we newbie authors can help each other by reviewing books and posting reviews to our blogs/websites and Facebook pages. My blog: brinson1.wordpress.com.

By the way, there's a dynamite recipe for White Chili there...

Lorena Mccourtney (LorenaMcCourtney) | 15 comments After 39 print/published books, I'm going with a Kindle only release this time. This is "Here Comes the Ride," second book in my Andi McConnell Mysteries. (Although it stands alone, without reading the first book.)

Andi's new limousine service business with her inherited limousine is humming along. Now she has a five-day, live-in gig transporting wedding party and Hollywood guests to the "wedding of the century." Not exactly a friendly gathering, because there's blackmail, betrayal, and enough hot hostility to melt that life-sized ice sculpture of the bride and groom. And murder.
Like most killers, this one objects to being brought to justice. Objects very strongly.

Available for $2.99 on Kindle. Read Chapter 1 on my website http://www.lorenamccourtney.com


Lorena Mccourtney (LorenaMcCourtney) | 15 comments "Invisible," the first book in my four-book Ivy Malone Mysteries series, has just gone up on Amazon as a free download from Kindle.

Tristi | 12 comments My name is Tristi Pinkston, and I'm about to release my sixth novel in January. My first three books were LDS historical fiction, then I wrote a contemporary romantic suspense, and then I started writing LDS cozy mysteries. They've all been a whole lot of fun.

Let's see if I can do some linking here:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14328...

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/35221...

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/64562...

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/78694...

The sixth book isn't up on GoodReads yet.

I'm also a book reviewer, so for those of you who are looking to have your books reviewed, we might have something to discuss. I prefer light mysteries, sweet romance, historical fiction - no erotica, horror, overt sensuality.

I look forward to getting to know each of you better!


Shakir Rashaan (shakir_rashaan) | 4 comments Hello everyone,

My pen name is Shakir Rashaan, and I am sort of new to the Goodreads site.

I have one mystery novel to my credit, which is Obsession (Deviant Intent) by Shakir Rashaan. It is an erotic mystery novel, based out of the streets of Atlanta.

Here is a description of D.I.:

“Hate me or love me, I get results…”

When Dominic Law left the force for a more lucrative offer from a childhood friend to run his private security firm, he thought that his days of suffering as a police detective were over, and he could sit back and finally live the “good life” and take the cases that he wanted, when he wanted.

Was he ever wrong…

Before he could settle into his cushy new office and flirt with his sexy secretary, simultaneous cases that the firm accepts finds Dominic in the midst of a different set of politics and rules that he thought he escaped when he left the force. A sexy detective assigned to the first case seems to keep his eyes and hands) full, while the other case involves a victim close to his heart and unexpectedly reunites him with a former partner that never forgave him for leaving the force… and her.

From the lustful scenes within the fetish and swingers night clubs, to the relentless heat of the streets that he used to walk as a rookie cop, Dominic is engrossed with solving the cases in a libidinous underworld where the rules are different, and nothing (and no one) is as they seem.

Deviant Intent: Obsession introduces fans of Chronicles of the Nubian Underworld to the former APD detective as the main man in the first of this new “Kink Detective” series, where you never know who or what might turn up next.

I hope to get to know you a little better!
