Product Description
Where is Adam?

Julie Raynes’ husband has been missing for six months. Devastated and confused, she refuses to believe that he would leave her voluntarily, though her best friend thinks differently. However, her Aunt Alice, a psychic, tells her Adam has been murdered, and when she reveals how she knows this, any hope that Adam is still alive, dissipates.

The police are also beginning to believe that Adam Raynes was murdered. And Julie is their prime suspect. Her life in ruins, Julie vows to hunt down whoever is responsible for Adam’s murder and make them pay for their crime.

In the meantime, David Gray, a young man who was pulled from a lake by a fisherman when he was 9 years old, wakens from a coma after nearly two decades. Unknown to Julie, Adam and David share a dark connection, a darkness that threatens to devour both of them, in a terrifying race with death.

Thank you so much! I just submitted my final draft (and new cover) for publication. It's exciting.

I like this new cover so much better. Well done.

Writers' Cafe / Re: Your Opinion?
« Last post by Jena H on Today at 05:28:21 PM »
I'm guessing the book is non-fiction, perhaps a memoir?  She-la-ti-da is on the right track:  whatever your genre is (what YOU think it is, anyway), look at all the books already in that category and get the vibe of what they look like.  Your cover already suggests that it's not fiction, so that at least is a step in the right direction, but you may want to find other images that are more indicative of the topic of the "last day."  (I'm also not sure if you mean the person's last day on earth, or the last day of all life on earth.)  Either way, you can probably find an inexpensive image that denotes something spiritual or inspirational, or whatever concept you want to convey.

Also, I don't think I've seen too many book covers, even non-fiction or self-help, that have the author's picture on them.  So you may want to re-think that.  (Unless you feel very strongly about it, of course; after all, it's your book, so you can do it if you want.  But since you asked....)

Writers' Cafe / Re: Amazon wouldn't lie to me, would they?
« Last post by dancing squirrel on Today at 05:21:23 PM »
YES YES YES! They absolutely lie in cold blood and openly and when you catch them in the act and point it out, they lie some more.

This is a fact.

Writers' Cafe / Re: When Amazon removes a legitimate review
« Last post by dancing squirrel on Today at 05:00:56 PM »
I disagree.

As a reader it's up to me to decide how much stock to put in any given review, and it's not at all hard to figure out which ones are worth paying attention to. Sometimes the low rating ones are the most helpful as they're very specific about what the reader didn't like. I don't think it's at all fair to say they are 'rarely' legitimate. I think glowing 5 star reviews by someone who has skin in the game are just as frequent as retaliatory 1 star reviews.

FWIW, while I don't leave reviews on Amazon, I have, for the past couple of years, been rating and reviewing on GR every book I've read. There are definitely some one and two star ratings that I consider completely legitimate. They're rated low because either the story, or the writing, or the technical aspects (formatting etc.) of the book were so poor that I couldn't find it in me to even finish the book. I don't think I need to finish a bad book to know it's a bad book and to say so.
You are free to disagree, but what I said was true.

Writers' Cafe / Stanley Williams on moral premises
« Last post by WHDean on Today at 04:59:27 PM »
I must be out of the loop because only recently discovered Stanley Williams. I can't recall his name being mentioned here either. Whatever the case, a lot of useful craft stuff on his blog once you dig a little:

http://moralpremise.blogspot.ca/
 
The thing that struck me about his big idea, the moral premise, is that it all the characters should mirror the moral premise in their own ways.
Another interesting bit was his take on the film The Pledge. I used to think it was the paradigm example of a failed tragedy (even though the twist was interesting as a device). The MC ends up miserable and seemingly insane because of his virtue, not because of his vice. Williams uses it to show how a bad moral premise can destroy a film, despite the stars involved:

Anyway, I share because I care. :-*

1-stars are fake but 5-stars are genuine? Oh please...  ::)

Funny how we see numerous threads complaining when a 5-star "genuine" review disappears yet we don't see authors starting threads stressing about critical reviews that are removed.
I didn't say that. Please read my comment again and respond to what I really said instead of what you imagine I said.

There are so many I could binge on.  Looks like it's ER on Hulu.  I'm on season 1, episode 2.
