My Stamp of Approval (part 3)

It’s been a nice ride, folks. Sadly, this is the last of the promotional posts… for now. On the bright side, you should have a really high “to-read” pile by now.  Before you dig in, if you haven’t already, allow me to introduce to you the last, but certainly not the least, five amazing authors on my list.  I should add, there are several great authors in the Prose & Cons clan. After all, we started out with the alias “The gang of twenty-one” and have only grown from there.  I think we have about twenty-four authors now. Don’t quote me on that. But I’m fairly certain that’s the number.

With anything else, certain people tend to flock to others. Their personalities gel and/or they are like-minded.  While others tend to keep to themselves. There’s nothing wrong with being shy mind you.  It’s just harder to get to know the ones who are.  Personally, I like to take care of my own, the authors I’ve gotten to know through Prose & Cons. My post-school clique, if you will.

Let me just say, I feel terrible that this post didn’t make it in for the end of the last week, as originally planned (or was it the week before– yikes!).  I’ve been out straight lately. Polishing my latest manuscript, crafting the perfect query for it, the synopsis, etc. And in the middle of it all, this bronchitis-type bug wiped me out.  “I don’t have time to be sick!” was my first thought. The illness didn’t care, or wasn’t listening.  Needless to say, it has slowed me down a bit.  It hasn’t stopped me because I won’t allow it to.  But truthfully, it has slowed me down, as much as it kills me to admit.

Okay, back to the reason we are here today.

If you love crime fiction as much as I do– as a reader and a writer– you’re in for a real treat with the first two authors on my list.  Drum roll please…

Description of Stalking Sapphire:

Despite the illusion Sapphire Dubois presents to the rest of the world, she is not just your stereotypical 22-year old Beverly Hills heiress; she hunts serial killers. While her fellow heirs spend their nights with trending celebs and drugs at the hottest club, Sapphire secretly spends hers luring, capturing, and anonymously handing over So-Cal’s most wanted killers to the police — just your average Tuesday night.

What Sapphire doesn’t know is that one of her adversaries is watching her every move, aware of both her true identity and her unconventional hobby. Needless to say, he doesn’t approve.
