FICTION FLAME FRIDAY

               The Good Sister
           by Wendy Corsi Staub


The Good Sister is about a gentle mother named Jen Archer that had dreamt that her oldest daughter Carley would be amazing at the school she used to attend when she was her daughter's age: Sacred Sister's Catholic girl's school. That dream didn't come true as her daughter is stuck in a bullied environment.
But Jen Archer doesn't realize that Carley isn't 100% alone. She's been chatting to an online person identified as "Angel". And she tells Angel everything, including the death of her past best friend. Carley trusts Angel. Maybe a little too much.
When another student is murdered, Jen begins to worry. The deaths are too coincidental, too close to a past memory. And everything tells her that her daughter, Carley, might be next to lose her life. Someone out there is hunting down the guilty. Teaching them how to fear and how to die.

Let me just start off by saying that this book was very slow in the beginning. Not that the scenes were drawn out too long, but more like nothing was happening. And when something DID start to happen, I felt the scene wasn't written well. There could've been stronger suspense and better reactions/behaviors from the characters.

BUT all was forgiven when I discovered what was really going on and who the killer was and the WHY. The why was what surprised me. I believe the reason for the kills and the "villain" was crafted perfectly. I had no idea! And I hate having no idea but it was a great surprise. I was so wrong on discovering the mystery that it told me I need to get back to reading my Nancy Drew novels. Some people said it was like the book/movie Carrrie. I wasn't able to disagree or agree because I haven't seen nor read it. But by watching the commercials, i think it has more depth or more secrets than Carrie. But I wouldn't really know.

So this book isn't on fire but it did spark a flame. Especially at the end!

I am posting this a lot later than I had wished, but today was a very busy day. But I wasn't going to let you guys down. So here's the cover for the next book in The Gifted Series:

The Ruthless Race

Read what it's about::

Eighteen-year-old Suwelly Tate is a normal girl. A normal girl who has the power to turn invisible, heal people's wounds, and, once in a while, rob a house or two for a way to pay for college. But a ‘normal’ girl all the same.

Until the day when one of the burglaries goes wrong and three unexpected visitors catches Suwelly turn invisible. Now someone is after her ability and everywhere she turns she’s running into danger. She doesn't know whether to call the cops on the hooded men watching her or the mysterious boy following her around. Suwelly has to make a decision whether to fight or flight. Only, she doesn't realize the problem she’s facing is literally out of this world. 

At this point, Suwelly really wishes she is normal.




It will be available to purchase in October!

TWO BIG ANNOUNCEMENTS

I have two big announcements for you guys! Well, more like three but one part of the announcement goes with the other. Anyway, let me start by saying that I thought I would never ever get to this point and that my stories would stay an eBook for the rest of my life. But i was wrong. Because now, not only is it an eBook, but it's a PAPERBACK as well.

A box of them came in just yesterday! And here's the other half of the 1st surprise:: the cover is different. I know I know, this is the third time this has happened. But I promise it is the last time. I seriously LOVE this cover and i will not be changing it for anyone. I hope you guys like it too!

You can buy the actual paperback from Amazon. It will be available on Barnes & Nobles very soon, but they have to do some fixing with it first. As soon as Barnes & Nobles is selling them, I'll make sure to tell you guys. So please go to Amazon website instead- they will definitely have it in stock. The book is not in stores yet. Be patient, I'm working on it.

The SECOND announcement is that I have a recorded interview about The Callous Catcher on
