Tools of Justice --- Total-E-Bound Erotic Romance Ebooks

Tools of Justice --- Total-E-Bound Erotic Romance Ebooks

One cop. One killer. Both dreamwalkers. Not every dream should see the light of day...

Let's talk about comfort zones. Mine is set far back from anything that looks like it might be a horror film or book. I've never read Steven King, nor do I ever intend to. (Well, except for his book on writing, but that's almost a prerequisite for anyone who thinks they're going to try and get published, and it's not really that scary.)

So what ever possessed me to write in this genre? Well, that answer is simple. Srah Masters. She said let's...and I said....Okay. Is the story warped? Maybe a bit, but she's known for that. Is it angsty? Hell yes, but that's my shtick. The beauty is in how well the two styles mesh. Even our editor had to ask who wrote what and that's a huge compliment to how well we worked together on this.

So while book two is in the offing, have yourse;f a read of this first book in The Dreaming universe and the good news, you probably won't need tissues this time around. 

Three very different people have one thing in common-a dreamscape steeped in horror. Barry has had dreams of violent death all his life, and as a cop, he now works to solve the crimes his dreams tell him about in hopes he can save at least one victim from suffering the fate he faces every time he lays his head on his pillow. His ex-lover, Tag—now his boss—has no idea how to help him cope other than to protect his job...and try to protect their hearts from the dreams that could end up killing them both.
Layton welcomes the dream state that shows him his next victim. He's been a killer for as long as he can remember, and the land where he walks in shadow beside the horn-headed man who guides him feels more like home than the waking world. Now, in addition to seeking out those who would kill the innocent and ending their lives in his own special reign of terror, Layton is promised a bride—someone to love him forever. It seems everything he's ever dreamed is about to come true.
Jessica just wants to get her life back after her boyfriend is murdered and she is abducted. Twice. Finding herself at Leyton's mercy is a nightmare she soon finds is only the very beginning. When the horn-headed man visits her, she knows nothing will ever be the same again.
The four of them now have to find a way to navigate the real world while the dream state dictates their very lives and threatens everything they hold dear. If they manage catch a few killers and save a few innocent lives along the way, that will have to be their compensation for the "gifts" given by The Dreaming.

Sunday Entertainment March 4, 2012 (ish)

On Monday. I know. I was editing all weekend, so hopefully, that's some consolation. It means Tools of Justice, co-written by me with Sarah Masters is one step closer t it's release in May WOOT!!!

So, the News:

From the Web:

I haven't spoken up much about the PayPal fiasco. Not because I'm not following or don't have an opinion, but more because I don't know all the facts and I don't wish to spread mis-information. Suffice to say, I think the whole issue is a frightening and dangerous one and we should not let it slide lest we get buried in the resultant debris of lost freedoms. On that note, read this blog by one of my publishers, Loveyoudivine, and think about it. Learn the ins and outs of what's going on, and take a stand. It's important.

From My Publishers:

Read up on their new releases and free stories: Hot Shots, written by some of your favorite TEB authors.

And What About me?

Like I said, been neck deep in edits for Tools of Justice, but that is done and off to Sarah to work on. Next up, I will be working on Lace, another TEB offering being fixed before they make their final decision. I'll keep you posted.

I also spent a good deal of last week reading Bear Otter 
and the Kid. Wow. Monster book. I remember why I had been putting it off. It's looong!! But to me, the character development required that length. I loved the ocean/drowning theme Mr. Klune used throughout the story. The way he built it up to the point where the main character, Bear was feeling helplessly washed out to sea and lost was extremely effective.

I'll admit, the book had me in tears by that point. I also need to point out by the time I got to there, it was well past midnight and I was...overtired....yes. That's just it. Overtired. ;~)

I know I say quite often not many books can actually make me cry, and then every other book I talk about, I end up saying it mademe cry. Keep in mind, I don't talk about the books that didn't really touch me in some way. I read a lot of books. I don't talk about them all. I talk about the ones that matter to me, and this one matters. Why?

Because it's an excellently written book. It explores the very potent world of the family you chose over the family you were born into. It explores responsibility, trust, honesty and forgiveness. And on another level, it will outlive controversy and it has proven to me that all those things that are central themes in the book are alive and well in the real world that published it.

I can only recommend this as a fine book about rising above everything and holding onto the things that matter with both hands and all your heart.
