The Haunted Heist - Angie Fox, Author

 

The Haunted Heist - Review by Martha A. Cheves

Frankie had the power to show me the supernatural world.  With his help, I'd been able to see and interact with some of the ghosts here in town.  We'd saved my house; we'd solved a murder.  Two of them, actually.  We'd made some positive changes in Sugarland, not that he cared about helping anyone but himself.  And I had been trying to free him.  It was just that nothing had worked yet.

So who is this Frankie that has the power to take Verity Long into the supernatural?  Why is she trying to free him and from what?  These are just some of the fun questions that you can find the answers to by reading the Southern Ghost Hunter Mysteries Series.  I will tell you that Frankie lives in a trash can and Verity lives in a house she inherited from her grandmother.  But the fun part was learning how Frankie ended up in the trash can and why Verity is living in a house with no furnishings.

From the very first two books in this series - Southern Spirits and The Skeleton in the Closet, I found myself caught up in the suspense of a murder with a touch of humor.  I've laughed at the very odd pet that lives with Verity and how Frankie tends to get her into trouble in a world that most would never dream of visiting.  I feel for her as she struggles to make ends meet after her almost mother-in-law took everything away from her.  I feel joy for her as her feelings for Ellis grow.  And I hold my breath as she risks her own life to bring justice to those who need it.  This is a series that I hope will never end and I'm really looking forward to reading Book 4 in the series - Deader Homes & Gardens.

The Mystery Behind Artifact Theft

Ancient American artifacts are being sold to the highest bidder. When an ancient ruin is discovered, it doesn’t take long for thieves to find out about it.

In one of my blog posts, I wrote about the challenge of writing mysteries. This time we're going to talk about the mystery behind artifact theft. Archaeological thievery is becoming more and more of a problem every year but Utah’s vandalism is the worst in the country. Theft at the Four Corners area of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona is still a big problem. The damage to these sites is estimated at almost $42,000 in two year’s time. An ancient funeral pit can be sold for as high as sixty thousand dollars on the black market, not to mention pottery, baskets, and pendants found by looters.

Who's stalking Negative Man?

Who is that not-so-subtle government agent following Negative Man in Doom Patrol episode 2? You see him back there with the sunglasses, watching ever so closely? Can he be trusted? Who does he work for? Why does he seem so familiar? (hint: he's me) Should DC have him appear again? (the answer to that last one is a big ol' YES!)

Thanks to Earth Station DCU podcast host Drew Leiter for sharing the screen capture. I haven't been able to watch yet. Speaking of ESDCU, I'll be on their show next week talking Snow Falls, which was just released as an audio book as well as my appearance in this episode.

I'm not in the last photo, but this was the location. I'm standing beside the bus on the right.

Six years ago, Police Detective John Bartlett and journalist Benjamin West were instrumental in the capture of a notorious criminal mastermind. Their story played out in the media, rocketing both Bartlett and West into local celebrity status.

That was then.

They thought they had put their game playing days behind them, but now, their hated enemy has returned with a brand-new deadly game where the stakes are life and death for not only Bartlett and West, but for all those Darrin Morehouse felt betrayed him. It is a long list and Detective Bartlett's name tops it. With time running out and an army of killers on their trail, it is up to Bartlett and West to win this game. The cost of losing is death.

Deadly Games! is a fast-paced action/thriller featuring action, suspense, murder, and the occasional gunfire from award-winning author Bobby Nash.

I'm often asked why I promote my books as much as I do. This recent NY Times article might shed some light on the answer. Does it pay to be a writer? Sometimes the answer is no. A timely article for me since I've recently been screwed out of pay by a publisher and a bookstore where I did a signing.

I'm not looking for pity or encouragement here. Just sharing the article. However, if you'd like to buy a book or three, that would be cool too. :)

New #Review - Where the Rain Is Made (Paranormal)

Foreword (from the book)

The Cheyenne Dog Soldiers

 Of all the typical Plains tribes, the Cheyenne were most distinguished for warlike qualities. Few in number, they overcame or held in check most of the peoples who opposed them, and when the westward movement of European civilization began, they made more trouble than all the rest combined. In short, they were preeminently warriors among peoples whose trade was war.

As in other prairie tribes, the warriors of the Cheyenne were organized into societies or orders. These societies were fraternal, military, and semi-religious organizations with special privileges, duties, and dress, usually tracing their origin to some mythical culture hero or medicine man. Each society had its own songs and secret ritual, and exacted certain observances and standards of its members.

Of these organizations, none has played such a part in the history of the Plains as the "Dog Soldiers" of the Cheyenne.

About Where the Rain Is Made

* Nominated for a Bookie Award by Authors After Dark

* Best Romance of the Year Nomination

A decadent-looking savage has captured Francesca DuVall and her brother Marsh. These days, she spends every waking moment planning escape from the brutal Dog Soldiers' village.

Ethan Gray is a curator at a national museum . . . until he travels through time to help his beloved People. In the Cheyenne world he’s known as Meko, leader of the most revered and fearsome tribe of the plains.

Two cultures and two hearts battle. Violence and death haunt their troubled roads, but when kindred souls collide, love prevails against the greatest odds. From the windswept plains of Colorado to the placid life of a curator, their love is fueled by passion and kindled by destiny.

New Five-Star Review: Highly Recommended by Wendy Wanner 

A love that transcends time — a compelling, time-traveling romance poised between modern day and the gut-wrenching conflict between the Cheyenne and the Blue Coats.

Where The Rain Is Made had a fantastic and well-developed plot. The book opens with Ethan Gray, bruised, battered, and in a jail cell, and we don’t know what to think. Is he a good guy we’re supposed to love, or a criminal? But when the shaman Stands-In-Light visits him, calls him I Am the Wind, and says he is needed back in time, that his People, the Cheyenne, are involved in a bloody conflict, he accepts without hesitation.

His mission is to save as many Cheyenne as possible and convince Black Kettle to move his village. The shaman cautions him not to get sidetracked by chasing his vision of “a woman with hair the color of the magpie and eyes greener than pine needles.” One thing is clear though, if he is to return to his present life, the decision to come back must be made with “the whisper of a breath” before he dies.

By invoking a chant, he transforms into a raven, soars to the place where the rain is made, and then dives into the past where he is known as Meko, or leader.

It’s not long before we are introduced to Cesca, the woman of his vision, and the story unfolds. One of Cheyenne savagery and White Man's lies and brutality, but also ones of tenderness, love, honor, and devotion.

Where The Rain is Made was a surprising blend of genres. While solidly building on a foundation of romance, it is so much more. The paranormal aspect of time travel and shamanism is painted realistically and establishes the authenticity of the story while allowing modern-day influences to be brought into a past time through the hero's modern perspective. The reader is swept along with the emotions of the characters; fears of impending war, devotion to culture, love of family, horror at the necessary brutality of the Dog Soldier. The plot and characters are well developed and their ties to history and each other ebb and flow logically, but not predictably, securing the reader’s interest until the end.

The writing itself flows with an artistic mix of vivid depiction, intense emotion and every-day challenges that lets the reader say, “Oh, I’ve been there!” Also, the juxtaposition between the necessary goods in the historical scenes versus the present-day way of life made me stop and consider what is really important. Keta Diablo answers that question clearly: love, family and safety.
