Hello. My name is Susanne Leist.

A career in writing has been an enormous leap for me. Accustomed to the number-crunching field of budgeting and the hectic commodity markets, I left my first career and M.B.A. in Finance behind to pursue my dream. However, I do not regret my foray into literature for one moment. I write every day and have even tried my hand at poetry. So don’t let anyone tell you it’s too late in life to try something different. It is never too late to follow your heart.

THE DEAD GAME SERIES brings fantasy and surrealism to the classic murder mystery with dead bodies, suspects, and clues. In addition, it offers vampires and a touch of romance to spice the motley mix.

Blogs, websites, and social sites like Google and Twitter should be ready and waiting. Summaries and bios should also be prepared in advance. After the book is released, it should be announced everywhere with bold pictures and words. People will be ready and eager to read it. That's my goal for my next book, which will be the second book in The Dead Game series. Good luck!(less)

I wanted to incorporate all of this into my book. My mind moves quickly and so does the plot. It has twists and turns. It ends with a cliff hanger. But there will be a second book. I hinted at it by ending with "The end for now..." (less)

(via RRBC 30-DAY BLOGGING CHALLENGE - DAY 8)

I am dedicating today’s article to Tony Vaccaro, the famous photographer. The first picture is Tony in 1945, holding his beloved camera.

This week, I learned that the famous photographer Tony Vaccaro died at 100. A sad day for the world. He had photographed my brother in 1981, the year of my brother’s car accident, and two years before my brother pass

Susanne Leist Hi,
I'm pleased to meet you. I'll check your sites. I can use the help as my books fight to swim in the mire of books available. Sorry. I was writing poetry today.

Hi, I'll try my best. I'm in the middle of reviewing three books and writing my second one.


Susanne Leist Hi Clare,
I've been reading a lot of books this summer but just forgot to add them to Goodreads. I read the trilogy by Deborah Harkness. They were great except for the last book. Now I'm reading Brad Meltzer's latest book. I'm waiting for Linda Fairstein's new book to come in the mail.
Thanks for pointing this out for me.

Mary Simmons I am an muse to a fantasy writer. I promote him and learn as much as I can about the art of publishing these book series. Your search has ended. Moonwarriors is the very best Vampire vs werewolf series on the market. You may be interested in this werewolf writer, which is on facebook/goodreads and he is very down to Earth kind of man. Send him a friend request to Rusty Nugent and you can like Author Rusty Nugent group. Take it easy and let me know if you like Rusty's book series. You get many transformations of heroic werewolves vs evil vampires, and many battles between the both of them. There is a lot of blood and guts. The books are Dark Fantasy with Horror and Romance elements. Thank you for your support. Lets become friends, send me a friend request.


Daniel Pearson Susanne: Really enjoying your book and almost finished reading it.
I am on Florida at the moment with almost no communication. I will contact you this Friday to send you my review to look over before I post it. My apologies for the delay.
Best regards
Daniel
