Darwin Winters, reluctant pet psychic, is determined to leave her family’s paranormal past behind and lead a normal life.

When a local homeless man she befriends is found dead, and the police assume it’s a suicide, Darwin has no choice but to use her gift to help collar the killer.

Read Sample

Shannon Esposito lives in a magical gulf coast town with fluorescent sunsets, purple dragonflies and the occasional backyard alligator. Her mysteries transport readers to Florida without the hefty price of airfare. Although she knew from the age of five she wanted to be a writer, she briefly entertained the idea of being a scientist, until she found out it involved math, which gives her hives.

She shares this little corner of paradise with her husband, twin boys and dogs. If she’s not writing, you’ll find her coddling one of the above, hiding with a book or daydreaming with her toes in the sand.

Darker By Degree by Keri Knutson

Book Description

Darker By Degree by Keri Knutson

The Indie Book of the Day for 17th of October, 2012!

Genre: Suspense, Women Sleuths

A missing girl. A mysterious break-in. A brutal murder. Struggling actress Maddie Pryce is looking for her big break and a way out of her day job at a crumbling movie palace from Hollywood’s heyday, but finds herself at the center of a series of seemingly unrelated crimes. Soon she’s tangled up with a persistent detective, a driven director, a playboy producer, and an unstable ingenue. Can Maddie unravel the clues before her next role is as a serial killer’s victim?

If it wasn’t for a steady supply of criminals, actress Maddie Pryce’s razor-sharp wit might be West Hollywood’s most dangerous weapon. Whether meeting up with junkie burglars or snide corporate theater owners, sadistic murderers or snarky homicide detectives, she manages to hold her own.

The situations are intense, the descriptions vivid, the action vibrant, and the twisting plots are always driven by headstrong, curious Maddie. Detective Kyle Oberman says, “An angry Maddie is like letting loose a bouncy ball in the housewares aisle.”

As Maddie moves impulsively through everything from vandalism to serial killings, she manages to keep her instincts honed, calling to bear something her mother noticed in her, even as a young child. “My mother used to tell the story of my first swim lesson, when I walked right past the instructor and the water-wings in her outstretched arms and jumped right in to the deep end of the pool. She called it the look-before-you-leap syndrome.”

That’s Maddie . She’ll have you on the edge of your seat while she comes up with the most resourceful way to extract herself from a killer, then have no concept of how to deal with a romantic entanglement. She’ll draw beautiful pictures of Southern California, then uncover the dark underbelly of crime. You may feel at times like you’re in the great Golden Age of Hollywood until Maddie opens her mouth, then you know for sure where you are. Just one more way Maddie has of putting people in their place.

Keri Knutson has been writing since she could hold a crayon, and reading nearly as long. She writes inside her head constantly, and some of that makes it to the page.

Other than writing, she loves hockey, beer, zombie movies, the Whedonverse, Doctor Who, and being the keeper of archaic words nobody uses and all obscure character actor knowledge.

She grew up idolizing Matheson, Bradbury, Ellison, Lovecraft, and King and her favorite childhood memory is grabbing the newest edition of The Year’s Best Horror Stories off the spinning rack at the Duckwall’s, because, man, that was a ticket to absolutely anywhere.

She is the co-author, along with Susan Branham, of the novels Darker By Degree and Director’s Cut in the Maddie Pryce mystery series, and also the author of numerous short stories, the novel Running Red, and the upcoming novels A Willingness of Witches and Lost Things.

She lives in New Orleans with her husband, five kids, three dogs, two cats, and one zombie goldfish.

Dead to Writes by Cathy Wiley

Book Description

Dead to Writes by Cathy Wiley

The Indie Book of the Day for 22nd of August 2012!

Genre: Mystery, Women Sleuths

Cassandra Ellis is a soon-to-be published author, days away from achieving her lifetime goal. But before she can celebrate, before she can even have her first book signing, she’s brought in to Baltimore City Police Headquarters for questioning in connection to a real-life murder.

It seems she’s the last person to see the victim alive, since she had just met with the former arsonist to conduct research for her next book. Most damning, her day planner was found next to the body.

When another of her subject matter experts is killed– again right after meeting with her– Cassie decides to investigate things herself, rather than leaving it in the hands of the police. Although she’d love to get her hands on the homicide detective assigned to the cases.

Using all the tools available to her, including her research skills, her knowledge of murder and murderers, and… psychic parrots, she tries to solve the case before another friend is killed. Along the way, she finds out that murder in real life is different than murder on the page.

And don’t miss “Two Wrongs Don’t Make A Write”, the second book in the series, available in paperback and Kindle.
