Glasgow Kiss Episode 1 eBook-final.jpgGlasgow Kiss Episode 1.
(Publication Date: February 7th, 2019)

Genre: Thriller/ Serial Killer

Author: C.S. Duffy

Haunted by the fact that he never got the chance to tell best friend Lorna that he loved her before
she was murdered, Ruari sets out to track down the man he saw her with the night before she was
murdered – the man police are certain was her killer.

Forensic psychologist Amy Kerr has been watching prominent Glasgow lawyer Alec McAvoy for
months, certain that he is the so-called Dancing Girls Killer who evaded capture in London five years
previously.

Now Ruari and Amy are closing in on the same man – but every step they take draws them deeper
into the killer’s web.

“…completely addictive. Very fast paced with the short punchy time-stamped
chapters adding to the sense of a fast-moving investigation.”
– Joanne Baird, Portobello Book
Blog 

“…full of the Glasgow banter and humour laced with a good old-fashioned murder
mystery. Lots of twists and turns and little pools of red herrings kept me engrossed all the way
through.”
– Sharon Bairden, Chapterinmylife Blog

LC Conn - Sentinels front.pngBook Title: Sentinels

Publication Date: February 14th, 2018

Genre: YA Fantasy

Publisher: Between the Lines

The world is new, created from a great explosion caused by Chaos in a childish rage. Order is born from the intense light of the explosion, sent as a balance to the Dark One. As the world is created around It, Order realises that It cannot stand alone and creates the Sentinels. Extreme beings with amazing powers, they shape and mould the world, creating creatures and plants to inhabit it. A world of light and love.

Chaos cannot understand why these beings will not bend to his will and worship him. He tries to destroy their work and riles against them. In answer, Order forms a plan. A being; born of two of the Sentinels, with abilities stronger than their own. A child in human form, who must be raised by The People in order to understand their race. The One True Child.

Carling is that child. Raised in the sacred valley in secret, along with her four brothers. Raised by Tarl’a, the Keeper of the Stones and her husband, Mailcon. Her life is quiet and uneventful, until she turns thirteen. It is then she learns of her true identity and purpose on earth. Now she must come to terms with this great change and prospect of finally being able to leave the valley to be taught her skills by the Sentinels. She must do this before Chaos can find her and attack before she is ready.

This is a story of learning and growing, of making mistakes and building on them. It is good vs evil, light vs dark and love vs hate. Carling’s very life depends on the love of her family and her soul-mate. It is also a story about how the world will only survive if we can control hatred and learn to love.

Her backyard encompassed the surrounding farmland, river, hills and mountains which she wandered with her brothers and fed her imagination.

It was not until much later in life that L.C. turned what she thought was a hobby and something fun to do, into her first completed novel. Now married, L.C. moved from New Zealand to Perth, Western Australia, and became a stay at home mum. While caring for her family and after battling breast cancer, a story was born from the kernel of a dream. The first book of The One True Child Series was begun, and just kept blooming into seven completed stories.

Author Interview: Jonas Salzgeber

Bookies! We have been busy over here at the blog connecting with authors and chatting about their favorite books. We recently posted about Jonas Salzgeber and his new book The Little Book of Stoicism so you should check out that post. But today we will be conducting an author interview with him!

Author-Photo-Jonas-Salzgeber

Jonas Salzgeber is a writer and blogs for a small army of remarkable people at njlifehacks.com. He’s an expert in Stoic philosophy and passionate about self-made dark chocolate and buttered coffee with collagen.


Author Interview

Erik: What was your top read of 2018?

Jonas: Hard to say. There were some I liked a lot. I’d say Aubrey Marcus’ Own the Day, Own Your Life.

Erik: What is your favorite book friendship?

Jonas: It’s either Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss because there are many invaluable tools I want to implement one by one. Or it’s OSHO’s Living on Your Own Terms for mindfulness and inspiration.

Erik: Most anticipated book release of 2019?

Jonas: How to Think Like a Roman Emperor by Donald Robertson. His book Stoicism and the Art of Happiness was a massive help when writing The Little Book of Stoicism.

Erik: How many books are in your TBR Pile?

Jonas: There are seven of them. They are:

  • The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene
  • A Random Walk Down Wall Street by Burton Malkiel
  • The Epic of Gilgamesh by Penguin Classics
  • The Writing Life by Annie Dillard
  • The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp
  • Heart of the Mind by Connirae and Steve Andreas
  • Skin in the Game by Nassim Taleb which I’m currently reading.

Erik: Who is your favorite author?

Jonas: It’s a tough call. But I have to go with Mark Manson. I love his writings. I can learn a lot from him.

Erik: How did you start writing?

Jonas: My brother Nils and I started a blog. So I had to start writing 🙂 This was in 2015. Before that, I wrote for university and in my journal.

Erik: Where is your favorite reading spot?

Jonas: Currently it’s the couch in the living room where I live. But I preferred the beach in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, where Nils and I lived for seven months.

Erik: How long have you been an author?

Jonas: The Little Book of Stoicism is my first official book. As said before, I started writing in 2015 and wrote a book called Wake Up on Fire, but that’s not available anymore.

Erik: What do you like about reading?

Jonas: Learning. I believe in getting better every day. Books are my No 1 source of wisdom. I love that I can read in an afternoon what others have been studying for years, or even their whole lifetime.

Erik: If you had to describe yourself in a book title, what would it be?

Jonas: Cool question. Something like that: Try Hard, Struggle, Get Up, Dust it Off, Try Harder, and Repeat.


And that wraps up our interview with Jonas! Stay tuned for more book reviews and blogger news. If you would like to participate in an interview with us at Breakeven Books or if you have any questions you think we should ask, say hello in the comments.

Author Interview: Jay Cadmus

Hey there bookworms! I did another author interview with a gentleman I have been conversing back and forth with for a while. His name is Jay Cadmus and he is the author of Constable Outreach 35. I am currently reading his book and will be posting a review of it in the near future. But for now, check out the interview I conducted with Jay!

AUTHOR INTERVIEW


ERIK: What is your top read of 2018 so far?

JAY: Just finished reading a resurrected copy of The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra, Second Edition. With another in the TBR list of Scarab of the Black Vatican by E.R. Robin Dover.

ERIK: What is your favorite book friendship?

JAY: Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill.

ERIK: How many books are in your TBR Pile?

JAY: Periodically, I cull my book holdings, based on interests. As I grew – and, those I’ve outgrown. However, I’m left with thirty books. Think: …Re-Read. A picture would probably be best.

ERIK: Most anticipated book release of 2018?

JAY: Most anticipated release? Back in April 2018, I anticipated the release
of my book, Constable Outreach 35. Now, my next book. Don’t feel it’s appropriate to make this about me. So, I’ll leave it at that.

ERIK: How did you start blogging?

JAY: WordPress.com. I felt there was something inside I needed to get out.
Seeing the words that came out, where I fit into society. Based on what
I’ve been taught. Opening lines of communication. Learning from alternate
points of view.

ERIK: How long have you been a blogger?

JAY: With such a sporadic record, the start was near 2012. Consistently? In
linear fashion? Sixteen years condensed into three months. Learning as I
went. Most postings deleted. With the changes in the situation.

ERIK: Who is your favorite author?

JAY: Hard to pin down one of many. But, one author I follow today is
Steven Pressfield (The War of Art.)

ERIK:  Where is your favorite reading spot?

JAY: Grabbing a minute or three while waiting… wherever that may be.
Other than that, at my desk so I can make notes on my thoughts from
reading.

ERIK: What do you like about reading?

JAY:  Learning. Experiencing the thoughts produced by the words of others.
My reading and following action have made me change. I like who’ve I
become.

Sidenote: How great was that last answer! It gave me chills when I read how he responded to this question. Such a beautiful way to express his love for reading. OK, back to the interview.

ERIK: If you had to describe yourself in a book title, what would it be?

JAY: Chameleon – Novice who learned from every ‘You’.
