About SACRIFICIAL LAM
When English professor Lam Corso receives a death threat at
work, he laughs it off. A liberal activist at a small Southern
conservative college, he's used to stirring up controversy on campus. It's
just part of the give and take of life. Even when violently attacked, Lam
is convinced it must be a mistake. He can't imagine anyone who would want
to kill him for his beliefs. When his home is broken into and his
wife's business vandalized, Lam is forced to face the truth. His wife—a
passionate anti-gun crusader—is outraged when Lam brings a gun into the house
for protection. The police can't find a single lead. Left to their own
devices, Lam and Susan are forced to examine their marriage, faith, and values
in the face of a carefully targeted attack from an assailant spurred into
action by his own set of beliefs. What will it cost to survive?
In the silence immediately after Susan
screamed, Simon’s high wail came from upstairs. Billy’s voice broke through, “Mom?
What happened, Mom?” His voice moved to the top of the stairs. “Mama, I’m
scared. Where are you?” Simon was sobbing.
Susan grabbed the flashlight and scrambled
to her feet. The darkness of the room pressed in on her, weighted with threat,
the silence in the downstairs smothering her voice. She shined the flashlight
toward the stairway, heading that way, and yelled, “Boys, can you see the light
from the flashlight?”
She flicked the light around the room, and
seeing nobody, she yelled again, with less panic this time, “Nothing to be
afraid of, Billy. I’m sorry I scared you. You and Simon come on downstairs
right now.” She shined the light on the stairway steps, fear crawling up her
spine from the darkness behind her.

But he never took baths...he was also good friends with President Kennedy. Vikki's quest is to find out who murdered her husband...was the entire thing a conspiracy? Today, the blog Teatime Tattler is featuring the book and an interview with Vikki. Stop in, say hi, and meet Vikki. http://bluestockingbelles.net/category/teatime-tattler/
My friend and fellow Ricardian author Joan Szechtman has written the 3rd book in her time travel series in which Richard III comes to modern times, STRANGE TIMES. I also wrote two time travels involving Richard, one in which he comes to the 21st century. It was very amusing to see that in both our books Richard encounters a few mishaps with modern conveniences. We each wrote those books before we ever met. STRANGE TIMES just went on sale for Amazon Kindle.

THIS WEEK'S BEST SELLING AUTHOR...
CD Reiss is a New York Times, USA Today, and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesnâ€™t pick up, sheâ€™s at the well, hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her masterâ€™s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did give her a big enough ego to try her hand at books.
Sheâ€™s been nicknamed the â€œShakespeare of Smut,â€ which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think sheâ€™s some sort of braggart whoâ€™s too good to chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
