Don't read this book if you scare easily...

How does he keep doing it? I lost way too much sleep because I couldn't put Plague down, then I kept having nightmares about the bugs. Don't read Plague if you need sleep. Don't read it if you are creeped out by insects. And especially don't read it if you scare easily. This is not the book for you because it will get under your skin and burrow all the way down into your deepest unconscious and disturb you.  Don't say I didn't warn you if you have a hard time sleeping and keep having the shivers every you see or think about an insect. Sweet dreams..."
~Scott Carroll, MD, Author of Don't Settle: How to Marry the Man You Were Meant For

A demonically driven, bioengineered terror is about to be unleashed and only Adam Dekker stands in the way.

It begins innocently enough with a short holiday on the Caribbean island of Dominica, but the idyllic setting is soon shattered. Dekker and Hannah Ahmed, the beautiful SIS agent, become entangled in an international conspiracy that propels them through a series of heart-stopping and life-threatening encounters.

The unholy creatures, resembling large locusts, are created in a remote island laboratory but unlike normal locusts, these creatures eat the flesh of their victims. The laboratory's head of security steals the seed broods, escapes the island, and sells the locusts to a terror group intent on overrunning Europe and the world.
The engineered locusts are a perfect terror weapon, ideal for eliminating the entire United States leadership in one massive strike, and keep America from interfering with the fulfillment of a jihadi prophesy. The terrorists need only breed a sufficient number of the flesh-eating locusts to create a swarm, and then release it during a special joint session of Congress.

This is Dekker's most difficult challenge yet, one that will require all his skills to stop a plague from forever changing the world.

Interview With Author Aline Soules

May 23, 2012

1) Please tell us about you and your book. What is the genre? What's the book about? (If you have any websites or other links, please post them).

My book is a collection of prose poems and flash fiction pieces that both stand alone and work together to create a universal woman. Each piece begins with "A woman" and a verb and continues from there. My goal was to emphasize the complexity of a woman and communicate that to my readers. The pieces express a range of emotions, stretch from the elements of daily life to the fantastical, and connect a woman to the world. I begin with a piece that breaks everything apart, after which, each piece examines one aspect of the prism that I split. One of the best compliments I received about my book was from a male writer, Al Garrotto, who provided a blurb for my book, but later wrote an unsolicited review on his blog. He wrote: "Every man who cares about a woman at any level of relationship will come away enr…

On Writing Chase Scenes

By Carolyn Howard-Johnson

Author of The Frugal Editor, the winning-est in her award-winning HowToDoItFrugally Series of books for writers

This article is excerpted from some editing I did for a writer of experimental fiction when I was on a Greater Los Angeles Writers Society panel writer of any genre can apply these suggestions to the chase, getaway, or high action scene in your script or manuscript before you send it to an agent or publisher or, better still, while you are writing the first draft. 

Sometimes even the most fascinating, interesting and irresistible detail can slow down the forward movement of your story. So as much as writers are told that detail is important, purge as much as you can from your action scenes and put it somewhere else or dribble it into narrative in other places in your manuscript. In the process, ask yourself if your reader really needs to know the color of the protagonist’s eyes. As important as detail is, some is better left to the imagination of the r…

She found the courage

"The most important investment we can make is in our children; therefore, I'm thrilled my messages are presented to children in The Surprise Circus." –Les Brown, motivational speaker.from the Foreword When the circus doesn't come to her town, six-year-old Aria is disappointed. She calls the ringmaster of the circus and asks him to send the circus, but he doesn't. Instead, the craziest things start to happen!

Every week, the ringmaster sends Aria a package—each containing an amazing circus character. But Aria has to put the circus characters in the backyard because each one does something very silly that upsets her mommy and daddy: the magician hides her baby sister, the strongman lifts all the furniture, and the juggler throws everything, even her baby sister, in the air, and the fire eater burns the curtains.

The circus people ask Aria to become their ringmaster, but she isn't sure she is brave enough to speak in front of lots of people. Aria star…
