Proxy, Medical Kidnap Files #3 and other new releases!

Release of Proxy

mito-series-mockupProxy, book #3 of the Medical Kidnap Files has just been released!

I’ve been getting great feedback from readers who are enjoying Mito and EDS, and who are super-excited to see medical kidnap, mitochondrial disease, and Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome featured in thrillers. Pick them up and see what the excitement is all about. And get ready for a new twist in Proxy!

Fourteen-year-old Seth Wilcox has been admitted to the hospital forty-eight times, according to his mother’s latest social media posts, when Social Services steps in and takes Seth into care, believing his mother suffers from Munchausen by Proxy and Seth is not safe in her care.

Gabriel Tate is now a veteran in dealing with medical kidnap and reuniting children with their families. He knows Seth and his mom, Leva, a tireless mitochondrial disorder advocate. He knows he needs to get Seth back to Leva as soon as he can.

With the authorities hot on their trails, Gabriel and Renata face increasingly difficult challenges. Can they stay one step ahead of the authorities? Can they finally get Seth somewhere he will be safe?

Get it now, and scroll down for more new releases!

—You bring great awareness to the issue of “medical kidnapping” – an issue some friends and I do advocacy for as well as the troubled teen industry in general, so I am DELIGHTED to see an author using the thriller medium to bring awareness to this problem… Sometimes fiction and thrillers are the best way to reach out and educate people and let people know they are not alone.
—Oh my goodness!!!! I need more!! I’m freaking out over here. This was my favorite out of the three.

—I didn’t want to put any of [the Medical Kidnap Files] down.

—Although [P.D. Workman’s] books are fiction, they hold a remarkable amount of information.

More new releases!

Of course, I have more than just one new release for you. Here are some other new faces (covers) on the block:

chemistThe Chemist, by Stephanie Meyer

Here is one that I am excited to read by the author of The Host and the Twighlight series.

In this gripping page-turner, an ex-agent on the run from her former employers must take one more case to clear her name and save her life. She used to work for the U.S. government, but very few people ever knew that. An expert in her field, she was one of the darkest secrets of an agency so clandestine it doesn’t even have a name. And when they decided she was a liability, they came for her without warning. Now, she rarely stays in the same place or uses the same name for long. They’ve killed the only other person she trusted, but something she knows still poses a threat. They want her dead, and soon. When her former handler offers her a way out, she realizes it’s her only chance to erase the giant target on her back. But it means taking one last job for her ex-employers. To her horror, the information she acquires only makes her situation more dangerous. Resolving to meet the threat head on, she prepares for the toughest fight of her life, but finds herself falling for a man who can only complicate her likelihood of survival. As she sees her choices being rapidly whittled down, she must apply her unique talents in ways she never dreamed of. In this tautly plotted novel, Meyer creates a fierce and fascinating new heroine with a very specialized skill set. And she shows once again why she’s one of the world’s bestselling authors.

natureThe Nature of Man, Life and Humanity, by Joseph Stadtmiller (freebie!)

The Nature of Man, Life and Humanity tells the story of the cosmos, Sun and Earth: the evolution of mankind expanding across the continents, the tools that aided us, the cultural networks that brought us together, the spirituality that answered what we didn’t understand. Along the way we began thinking that technology could solve all of our problems; our nature connection became a thing of the past. Mankind began a struggle against nature as brutal as the wars we perpetrated amongst ourselves, a war taking place in the air and water with the degradation of the land, the annihilation of ecosystems and biodiversity, concluding with the consumption of Earth itself. Climate stability is collateral damage as the human population continues to explode. While much of the environmental discourse currently focuses on climate change, this story is also about the issues regarding air, water, topsoil, biodiversity, energy and natural resources, and how mankind is attacking each of these areas with equal disregard.

tearsNo Tears Tomorrow, by Tony Nash (freebie!)

From Norfolk to Normandy – a family goes to war.

The 16-year old twins, David and Emma, in the carefree world of the mid-30s, joke about becoming spies.

To Commander Gregory, head of what will become the SOE, espionage is no joke, and he already has his eye on them.

Despite strong opposition from their father, they and their younger brother, James, and their Belgian friend, Nicole, become major players on the great stage that was the Second World War.

Emma’s rape hardens her resolve and she finds her niche in life is that of a highly accomplished assassin.

Life becomes a stampeding kaleidoscope of horrific hardship and daily danger; of incredible courage and unbelievable achievement, of daily death and ghastly disfigurement, and of moments of incredible joy and of hot, despairing tears.

pooDaddy and the World’s Longest Poo, by Brydie Wright

braveBrave Vulnerable, by Sheen Francis Reyes

This collection of poetry is a story about love, abuse, loss, and longing. It’s the product of over a year and a half of unbelonging, of tear-drenched pillows, and of euphoria and pain that won’t let you sleep unless turned into ink.

This book will definitely touch anyone who is drunk in wanderlust, has a quivering heart, and has been separated to the one and only person they have a unique connection with by distance, wrong timing, and misjudgment.
