The Last Deception by DV Berkom

I’m over at Bookbrowsing today talking about the next Leine Basso novel, The Last Deception. Come on over and join me!

bookbrowsing

What is The Last Deception about?

The Last Deception is the latest Leine Basso crime thriller, which pits the former assassin against a Russian general in the GRU, with help from a billionaire arms dealer. As with the other books in the series, the settings are international with scenes in Moscow, Athens, and Washington, DC. This time, though, instead of working a case for the anti-trafficking organization, SHEN, Leine learns of a deception that could lead to nuclear war, and must try to convince the powers that be to take her warning seriously. Here’s the blurb:

Lies. Deception. A nation on the brink of war.

In the Cold War, you knew who your friends and enemies were. In war today, there’s no difference. Just when Leine Basso thinks she’s free from the business of murder and deception, a desperate call from a friend drags her back into the dark world…

The Secret to Writing That Nobody Tells You

Found this via Dylan Hearn’s blog Suffolk Scribblings. The ‘secret’ to writing we’ve all been searching for 🙂

WORD SAVANT

When I coach people, there is an ugly truth about writing that I often hold back from them. It’s something you can only learn through gut-wrenching, razor’s edge, shard of broken glass experience.

There is no magic to writing, none at all. It’s nothing but grueling

No magic, no easy formula, no genius algorithm. There is no “secret” that is going to make everybody love your work, buy all your books, tell their friends about you, and get stars in their eyes when they hear your name.

It is simply monotonous, repetitive work.

I recently finished the manuscript for my first novel. For eight years I struggled to finish it. And do you know what finally helped me finish it?

Monotonous, repetitive work.

I did it by sitting down (almost) every day and writing a minimum of 500 words.

Some of those days were pretty good days. I would say…

Aiming for the NYT Best Seller List

This is a GREAT deal–only .99 for a ton of indie pubbing info. Yowza–wish I’d had all this information when I started out…

David Gaughran

NYTlistUnless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the last week – with no wifi! – you are probably aware we released The Indie Author Power Pack on Monday, with the aim of hitting the New York Times Best Seller list.

We won’t know the result until next week, but I’ve had a few tweets and emails asking how we were doing, so I thought I’d give you an update.

Before that, if you somehow missed the blanket promo we have been conducting, The Indie Author Power Pack is a stonking deal – only 99c – and contains three top rated writer’s guides:

  • indie-power-pack-blogWrite. Publish. Repeat. by Sean Platt & Johnny B. Truant
  • Let’s Get Digital (2nd ed.) by me
  • How To Market A book (2nd ed.) by Joanna Penn
  • PLUS exclusive content.
