Winter is coming…

Okay, well, it’s pretty much already here where I live.  I almost biffed it on the ice today on my walk. But the sky is clear and the sun is gorgeous, so I’ll take it! 

Today I wanted to let y’all know about some special deals just in time for the holidays:

cover for Serial Date

First up, Michael over at Free Kindle Books and Tips is running a contest for signed paperbacks (the first Leine Basso thriller, SERIAL DATE, is included in the lineup) and a new Kindle Paperwhite.  There are some amazing reads by fabulous authors, including M.A. Comley and Debra Burroughs. Click here to enter. (contest ends Friday, 8 Dec.)

 

Next, 50 fast-paced, page-turning thrillers and a brand new eReader are up for grabs over at Booksweeps. (And you get free ebooks just for entering, so a great deal all the way around). An e-copy of the latest Leine Basso, THE LAST DECEPTION, is one of the prizes, so if you haven’t read it yet, get yourself on over there and enter the contest! (ends Sunday, 10 Dec.) Click here to enter.

 

FREEBIES: Two of my novels, THE KATE JONES THRILLER SERIES, Vol. 1, and CARGO: A Leine Basso Thriller, are FREE! Kate’s only available on Amazon, but you can download the app and read it on just about any device (free through midnight tomorrow, 8 Dec.). CARGO is available wherever eBooks are sold, and will be free through next week. See links below:

Click here for Cargo: A Leine Basso Thriller (link goes to my website which lists all retailers)

 

And last but definitely not least, I’m honored to have THE BODY MARKET: A Leine Basso Thriller, included with 24 NYT, USAT, and Amazon bestsellers in a fantastic box set of 25 full-length thrillers, with 100% of royalties going to One America Appeal for hurricane relief. The charity was spearheaded by five former US presidents in response to the devastating hurricanes that ravaged Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands this fall, and 100% of all donations go straight to supporting these hard hit areas.

 

 

There’s something for everyone in the set; crime, espionage, sci-fi, post apocalyptic, you name it, we’ve got you covered. I downloaded my copy and believe me, you’re going to love what’s inside. It’s available on Amazon through the end of December for $9.99 USD before it disappears forever. It’s definitely a “great deal wrapped in a good deed,” since the books combined are worth over $100. Like one of the organizers, R.E. McDermott, explained, it’s like donating $10 and getting over $100 back. Click here to download.

That’s all I have for now. Good luck with the contests, enjoy the free eBooks, and a huge, heartfelt thank you to those who decide to donate to such a worthy cause. Here’s wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and wonderful holiday season. Thanks for being here!

More about The Last Deception

cover for the last deceptionLies. Deception. A nation on the brink of war…

That’s the first line of the description for my latest Leine Basso thriller, THE LAST DECEPTION. This one’s a bit of a departure for Leine, since it primarily deals with espionage and terrorism. I’ve been a huge fan of spy thrillers for as long as I can remember and thought it would be fun to write what I loved to read.

Turns out, it was much more difficult than I thought.

My first draft was all right according to early readers, but it felt like there was something missing. I sent it off to my weapons and operations guy, but he was out of pocket and wouldn’t be able to take a look for a couple of weeks. So I took a chance and sent it to a writer friend who has experience with security operations and arms dealers and such, and asked him to take a look to see if he could identify what was off.

Well, I asked for it 🙂

One month and several pages of detailed, no-holds-barred notes later, and The Last Deception finally felt like the novel I’d been longing to write. One more round of revisions (2 pages of notes this time, and my ops guy got back to me with some great ideas), and I sent it off to my amazing editor, Laurie. The result is a book that I’m very excited to share with you all. Yes, it took 3 months longer than my usual 6-month turnaround, but I’m indie–I have no hard deadlines. The book gets published when the book is ready.

It’s currently available for pre-order at all retailers and you’ll save 50% if you get it before launch day (20 September). Click here for more information.

Here’s a short video I created to go with the novel. Let me know what you think in the comments:

I’d love it if you’d let all your thriller-loving friends know about the book, and especially about the pre-order sale. Advance reader reviews have been fantastic, to say the least, so you can rest assured it’s readable 🙂

That’s it for now. I’ll post sometime next week with an excerpt, so come on back.

Have a thrilling weekend!


Vigilante Dead is Live! (And other news)

cover for Vigilante Dead

 

I’m thrilled to announce that VIGILANTE DEAD is now live! You can get it for the super special launch price of 99c (ends 12/11). Here are the links:

KOBO

iBooks

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

And here’s the description:

Death. Lies. Revenge.

After years of running, Kate Jones is finally putting her past behind her. Between restoring ties with her younger sister, moving in with Sam, a cop-turned PI, and working as a PI herself, she’s learning to live life without looking over her shoulder.

Then Kate lands a case that changes everything: a young college student with no history of drug abuse dies of an overdose, and the parents come to Kate demanding answers. Soon, Seattle is reeling from dozens more deaths, all with the same chemical markers. At first, police assume that the victims are closet junkies who got hold of a bad combination, but after someone close to her becomes a victim, Kate believes something far more sinister is going on.

The deeper Kate digs, the more she uncovers about the deadly drug’s origins, forcing her to choose between doing what’s right…

…and getting revenge.

What are you waiting for? You could be reading this book right now  🙂

In other news…

cover for Thriller13‘Tis the season…I’ve joined forces with 12 bestselling thriller authors to bring you THRILLER 13, a set of 13 thriller novellas and short stories, just in time for the holidays. I consider it an honor to be a part of Thriller 13not only because of the fabulous writers who are involved but because we’re donating 100% of profits to fight the exploitation and human trafficking of children.

As most of you know, human trafficking (especially children) has figured heavily in the Leine Basso series, and is one of the main reasons I wrote Bad Traffick, The Body Market, and Cargo. All of the authors in this set are committed to fighting human trafficking, and I’m stoked to have been asked to participate. For a limited time, you can pick up the set on most retail sites for 99c (once this set is gone, it’s gone). Here are the links:

Amazon

iBooks

Barnes & Noble

KOBO

And, last but not least…

15 free thrillers banner

(*Edited link–it should work now!) How about some FREE ebooks? In another awesome collaboration, I’ve joined 14 other fantastic authors and Instafreebie to bring you 15 free thrillers. NYT & USA Today bestsellers, Amazon bestsellers, you name it, they’re in here. Download 1 or all 15–they’re all free (just click on the image above). You’ll be asked to enter your email address so Instafreebie can send you the free books. The address is then given to the author, which will allow them to send you infrequent notices about new releases and such. A fair exchange for hours of free reading, I think, and a risk-free way to try new authors 🙂

Well, that’s all I have for now. I’ll be back on Friday with another post and a chance to win something. Until then, have a fabulous week!
