"The Couple Next Door"

This New York Times bestseller mystery by Shari Lapena has four-star reviews.  I'm thinking of putting it on my reading list.  Has anyone read it yet?

And, I just finished "The Girl on the Train" by Paula Hawkins.  It was a good read...I'd say three and a half stars.  Anyone else read it?  

What do you recommend?

I want to thank everyone who helped make last week's "Meet the Author" presentation at the Oak Island library such a huge success!  It was a full house, and I enjoyed chatting with everyone about Zeke Traynor and his adventures!

I'm grateful to all who attended!  Thanks!

4th Annual Writers Digest e-book Awards

Posted on January 31, 2017 at 1:00 PM Comments comments (0)

I just heard from a Judge in this year's Writers Digest e-book competition.  He rated Lilac and Old Gold at 4.5 out of 5, and said the following:


"Zeke Traynor is my favorite new bad boy 'Jason Bourne' styled leading man who will keep you turning the pages and begging for more. I was so happy to see that the author plans on making this character into a series and I definitely plan to read more.


...the author has the perfect voice for the genre and with a smart, fast-paced writing style—he has a great entry here.


I was hooked, entertained, and with a satisfying ending…who could ask for more in an entry? Great job!


I can’t wait to read more from this author and from Zeke. Write on!"
