IMG_2957.GIF

This evening  I’m soooo excited to be one of the many bloggers taking part in the cover reveal for Vanishing Girls by Lisa Regan. This is definitely one book I MUST read, the book description plus the fabulous cover are screaming at me “read me now”, unfortunately Vanishing Girls is Not available just yet, so I’m just going to have to be patient like the rest of you. In case you were wondering Vanishing Girls will be published by the amazing Bookouture on the 18th January 2018.

Before I reveal the cover in all its glory here’s the book description.

Vanishing Girls: A totally heart-stopping crime thriller (Detective Josie Quinn gripping crime fiction series – Book 1)

She was close enough to see that the girl had written a word on the wall in bright, warm red blood. Not a word, actually. A name…

Everyone in the small American town of Denton is searching for Isabelle Coleman, a missing seventeen-year-old girl. All they’ve found so far is her phone and another girl they didn’t even know was missing.

Mute and completely unresponsive to the world around her, it’s clear this mysterious girl has been damaged beyond repair. All Detective Josie Quinn can get from her is a name: Ramona.

Currently suspended from the force for misconduct, Josie takes matters into her own hands as the name leads her to evidence linking the two girls. She knows the race is on to find Isabelle alive, and she fears there may be others…

The trail leads Josie to another victim, a girl who escaped but whose case was labelled a hoax by authorities. To catch this monster, Josie must confront her own nightmares and follow her instinct to the darkest of places. But can she make it out alive?

Fans of Angela Marsons, Helen Fields and Robert Dugoni will be utterly gripped and sleeping with the lights on once they discover the first in this unputdownable new crime thriller series.

Impressed? I think this book sounds fantastic and without further ado here’s the fabulous cover…..

Before we get to the big reveal, here’s the book description

There are some secrets you can never tell.
The last thing to go through Dominique Thomas’s head was the image of her teenage daughter’s face and her heart lifted. Then the shot rang out.

They were the perfect family. Successful businessman Ben Thomas and his wife Dominique live an enviable life, along with their beautiful children; teenager Ruby and quirky younger daughter, Mouse.

But on Christmas Day the police are called to their London home, only to discover a horrific scene; the entire family lying lifeless, victims of an unknown assailant.
But when Ruby’s diary is discovered, revealing her rage at the world around her, police are forced to look closer to home for the key to this tragedy.

Each family member harboured their own dark truths – but has keeping their secrets pushed Ruby to the edge of sanity? Or are there darker forces at work?

About the author

Barbara is the author of psychological thrillers INVISIBLE and FLOWERS FOR THE DEAD. Both have been Amazon best sellers. Her latest book, THE DARKEST LIES, was published by Bookouture on 12 May 2017

Much of her success is thanks to her twenty-odd years’ experience as a national newspaper and magazine journalist. She’s interviewed the real victims of crime – and also those who have carried those crimes out. Thanks to people sharing their stories with her, she knows a lot about the emotional impact of violence and wrong-doing. That’s why her novels are dark, realistic and tackle not just the crime but its repercussions.

When not writing feverishly, she is often found hiding behind a camera, taking wildlife photographs.

**Cover Reveal** Murder Game by Caroline Mitchell @Bookouture @Caroline_Writes

Eeek I’m absolutely thrilled to be part of the big cover reveal for the awesome Caroline Mitchell and her latest book Murder Game. I love, love the Detective Ruby Preston crime series and I can’t wait to read the third book in this highly gripping series. Murder Game is published by the fabulous Bookouture and will be published on October 31st 2017 – and will be available for pre order from 3rd August 2017.

Before I share the cover I’m sure you will want to know more about Murder Game.

Book description

To catch a killer, you must first think like one …

A killer is playing a twisted game of life or death with his victims. After he captures them, a countdown begins. He marks the time by sending clues to the whereabouts of the women he has taken in three disturbing images: alive, tortured, dead.

In a race against the clock, East London Detective Ruby Preston must play the killer’s terrifying murder game and decipher the clues before more women die.

But this isn’t the first time the police have seen such a sickening crime. The notorious Lonely Hearts Killer, Mason Gatley, was put behind bars ten years ago for murdering six women in exactly the same chilling way. Desperate for more information, Ruby asks her gangster boyfriend, Nathan Crosby, to set up a dangerous meeting to allow her to see into the twisted mind of a murderer.

But the closer Ruby grows to the dark and charming Mason Gatley, the more worried her team becomes. Is he really helping her catch the killer? Or is he lining her up to be his next victim?

And here’s the cover……

IMG_2491.JPG

I’m really excited about Murder Game now I’ve seen the cover and read the book description and I hope you are too. If you haven’t read this series it’s one that I would highly recommend, and you still have time to read the first two in the series before Murder Game’s publication in October.

This evening I am thrilled to be part of the big cover reveal for one of my favourite authors on the planet Robert Bryndza.

When a battered suitcase containing the dismembered body of a young man washes up on the shore of the river Thames, Detective Erika Foster is shocked. She’s worked on some terrifying cases but never seen anything like this before.

As Erika and her team set to work, she makes the link with another victim – the body of a young woman dumped in an identical suitcase two weeks ago.

Erika quickly realises she’s on the trail of a serial killer who’s already made their next move. Yet just as Erika starts to make headway with the investigation, she is the victim of a brutal attack.

But nothing will stop Erika. As the body count rises, the twin daughters of her colleague Commander Marsh are abducted, and the stakes are higher than ever before. Can Erika save the lives of two innocent children before it’s too late? She’s running out of time and about to make a disturbing discovery…there’s more than one killer.

#CoverReveal The Detriment by David Videcette @DavidVidecette #TheDetriment

 

IMG_1350

This evening I’m thrilled to be able to share the cover for The Detriment, by David Videcette. This is his second detective thriller and launches on 29th June, but you can pre-order it on Kindle today. I’m so excited about this book as it follows on from The Theseus Paradox which I loved, but before I reveal the cover here’s a post from the author himself.

A COMPELLING DETECTIVE THRILLER BASED ON TRUE EVENTS

Today, crime fighter turned crime writer,  David Videcette is very excited to share with us a cover reveal for his second thriller, The Detriment. David says: “After twenty years in the police, I’m used to unmasking criminals, but today I’m delighted to be revealing the cover of The Detriment for the very first time.”

“A detective thriller, it follows on from  The Theseus Paradox my first novel, which was set against the backdrop of the 7/7 London attacks. In this second outing for Detective Jake Flannagan, he sails close to the wind as he struggles to thwart a nightclub bomb plot and a burning Jeep attack on an airport. I use my detective knowledge in my books and The Detriment is once again based on true events and actual police investigations.”

Here are David’s top five tips for creating a cover:

1. Remember that we all judge a book by its cover, even if we say we don’t! Give the cover as much thought you would your writing.
2. Kickstart the process by throwing together a ‘mood board’ of things which appeal – and even things which don’t!
3. Design should always reflect your book’s content, otherwise it’s just decoration.
4. Have an outline idea of what you’d like, but try and stay flexible.
5. Engage with the professionals, because you’ll need their design expertise to make your book look as good as it can.

The Detriment, David Videcette’s second detective thriller launches on 29th June, but you can pre-order it on Kindle  HERE

**Weekly Wrap Up**

image

I’ve only managed to read one book this week, I haven’t lost my reading mojo thankfully. I’ve had a week off and been far to busy to read. I might have only read one book, but it was a gripping one and very different to my normal reads, part history and part thriller.

I will be taking a regular social media free break one day every week as it certainly helps me to concentrate on my reading, and  I’m so easily distracted once I start trawling through Facebook and Twitter 🙈
