Hello all

Just want to squee about the fact that my two forthcoming mysteries from MuseItUp now have release dates!

The first book DEATH SCENE will be released on 22 September. The second, DEAD COOL, will follow on 25 November.

They are both e-book only, but it is possible to put in a pre-order - at a special sale price - if you go through the publisher's book store.

I believe that if you put in your pre-order, upon release the e-book will be emailed to you in all available electronic formats.

Am feeling quite excited about this...

Wow, so many great things happening for so many. That's what I love about this site.

Congratulations, Lucie, that is awesome.

The book looks great, Jessie.

That is fantastic news, Shara, I know that you're happy. (Yes, it's okay to squee about something like this. )

Keep it up!

Thanks, Liz, it was fun to do. Trying to pin down more interviews.

I wouldn't say that I'm damn good, but I do okay.

New review for Storm Rising - A Kelli Storm Novel

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read like being there!!, August 29, 2014
By
CaptJake - See all my reviews



Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Storm Rising - A Kelli Storm Novel (Kelli Storm Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
“Storm Rising - A Kelli Storm Novel (Kelli Storm Series Book 1)” by Kenneth Hoss, while not a typical genre that I read; it however is a wonderful read from beginning to end.

I have read few books that I want to read from beginning to the end in one sitting (“Red Storm Rising” by Tom Clancy being one) but this book is another. Tightly written, great character development, that by the end of chapter one you are in the story with the characters. Very similar to the police shows on NBC, "doink doink" and the addition of date and time prompts put me in the story with the characters. Kelli Strom isn’t just your typical hard as nails, female detective, but a woman who isn’t afraid to show her feminine side. However she’s not someone you would want to be on the wrong side off. Not to give away anything, but the ending has me ready to pick up the next “Storm Warning - A Kelli Storm Novel (Kelli Storm Series Book 2)” immediately.

If all of his novels are this well written I have my next 3 books already picked out. Time to start “Storm Warning - A Kelli Storm Novel (Kelli Storm Series Book 2)”!!

To the author, Great Job looking forward to the follow-on books!! Well Done!
