About the Book

Author Robin Mahle is pleased to bring you her latest novel, Landslide. A corporate suspense/thriller that will pull you in fast and keep you holding on tight until the very end!

Cover_Landslide

In the sprawling suburbs of Seattle, Claire McKenna finds solace in her perfectly ordinary life. With the daily struggles of raising a family and climbing out of debt, she and her husband Colin, work hard to hang on to what they’ve got.

So when Claire is offered an incredible opportunity to rise in the ranks of her firm, she jumps at the chance. Her joy, however, is short lived at the discovery that her close friend and colleague, Beth Graves has just been accused of embezzlement.

Compelled to see Beth’s name cleared, Claire soon stumbles on a larger, more dangerous conspiracy at the firm. One that involves people she once trusted.  One that threatens to destroy her ordinary life.

Excerpt

Claire booted up the desktop and logged into her work email. As she waited for the files to download, a flash of lightning appeared through the window, followed by a startling clap of thunder. Sleep would be elusive for her tonight if this storm continued. A light sleeper anyway, Claire would be hard pressed to block out the noise.

The desk drawer below contained her reading glasses that were a necessary evil, although she was only thirty-seven. Most likely the result of spending much of her time staring at computer screens. Sliding them onto her face, she clicked on the email attachments and began reviewing the reports Beth had sent over.

Claire began to see a pattern that had not presented itself prior to this month’s figures as she scrolled through the file. Comparing her hours with that of her junior colleague’s, it wasn’t adding up.

It was her responsibility to review the timesheets and expense reports for Sea-Tech each month before handing them over to Beth, which she had already done a few days ago as per usual. So why were these reports showing additional hours posted against her client? Was it possible she’d missed something in Lucas’ submittal? Anything was possible, but this error would have been a serious one had Beth not brought it to her attention. Sea-Tech wouldn’t have been happy about an additional several thousand dollars in consulting fees.

A final attempt to make sense out of the numbers came when she accessed the main server and retrieved the original account files, comparing her notes and timesheets against Beth’s report.

What the hell?

Interview

It is my pleasure to welcome Robin Mahle, author of Landslide, to Room With Books!

What do you do when you are not writing?

My family keeps me pretty busy. I’ve got two kiddos, 8 and 10 and a husband (who some might consider my third child). We’re usually going back and forth between soccer and Youth Theater. I’m afraid I don’t get much time to do anything else but write and take care of the family. Don’t get me wrong. I’m grateful that I get to devote my days solely to writing when everyone’s at school or work. I feel very fortunate and wouldn’t have it any other way.

Is there any particular author or book that influenced you in any way either growing up or as an adult?

I’ve been a long-time fan of Stephen King ever since I read his book, Christine, when I was sixteen years old. Although I don’t write horror, his influence is prevalent in much of my work. He is, in my opinion, the King of Suspense. There have been others that I admire greatly. As an adult, I would say that I’ve grown especially fond of JK Rowling. Of course, I’m a great lover of the Harry Potter series, but now with her stories for ‘adults’ I’ve become an even bigger fan.

Can you tell us about your challenges in getting your first book published?

Well, there certainly were quite a few. First of all, it took me a very long time to write my first book, Redwood Violet. Eighteen months to be exact. Then I had to learn all about e-books, formatting, royalties; my gosh, it was overwhelming! Not to mention that I had to figure out how to actually sell my books. I still haven’t mastered that last part. So yeah, there were tons of challenges. Still are. The world of self-publishing continues to evolve and we, as indie authors, must change with it.

If you could have any superpower what would you choose?

Mind-reading. Hands down, that would be the best superpower ever! I guess you could say it’s the insecure artist in me. Needing to know what people think of my work, honestly think of it, not just what they tell you.

What was your first job?

I was a junior in high school, so I was about 16. I worked part-time through a cooperative office education program in a car dealership. I answered phones, filed papers, you name it, I did it, except actually selling the cars J It was a good experience and those types of programs are really invaluable in shaping the minds of young people.

What types of books do you write?

I love mysteries. Writing them and reading them. I include elements of suspense, verging on thrillers in much of my work. I enjoy exciting, page turning stories and I think that’s how I write.

Who’s your main audience?

I would venture to say women, probably from about their late twenties all the way up to fifties and even sixties. I don’t know if it’s because female protagonists weigh heavily in my books, but I believe mostly women are drawn to my work. Funny thing is, I have some awesome, tough male characters as well. I think there are men who do enjoy my books, just a much smaller percentage than women.

Out of all of your characters, which is your favorite?

Katie Reid, from my Redwood Violet series. I feel as though I know her the best and she is probably more like me than any of my other characters. Of course, I’ve written now three books where she is the main character, so I’ve really developed her personality and know her so very well, it makes sense. But, I suppose there is a little of me in each of my characters and I have a personal attachment to all of them, including the men.

What does your writing schedule look like?

Kids are off to school fairly early, husband goes into work about 9. From that point, I shut off the TV and turn on my laptop. I don’t stop writing, except to use the bathroom and eat, until 3:30 when my kids get home. I sometimes use the early morning to work on marketing or my blog and weekends usually consist of at least some marketing, but not much writing. That’s about it. I treat it like a job with a set schedule because that’s what it is. It’s a job I happen to love, but it must still be treated with dedication and taken seriously if I hope to continue earning a living from it.

Do you use your OWN experiences?

I haven’t yet, no. Well, let me restate that. I did to a very trivial extent in my book Beyond the Clearing. Some of the banter between the women and the location in which the book takes place, those things happened to a degree. I can’t say though, that I came across any evil forces during that particular trip!

Was it easy to pick the title for your book?

No. It never is. I never know what my book will be called until I’ve written almost the entire first draft. It’s very difficult for me, actually. The title must convey the tone of the story. It has to mean something. I’ll usually bounce a few ideas off of members of my family to see which one they like the best. Sometimes that’s the one I’ll go with, but not always.

If you could pick one profession which would you choose if you were not an author?

Well, I spent twenty years in the construction industry prior to becoming an author, so definitely NOT that! I’d be a baker. I’d own my own bakery and make lovely cakes and cookies! I still might someday, when I’m older and I’ve run out of story ideas.

What are you currently working on?

I’m working on book three of my Redwood Violet series. In fact, I’ve just made Law of Five available for pre-order on Amazon. It’s due to be released on December 1st. I’m really excited about this one. I think fans of the series will be in for a big surprise.

FUN FACTS:

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? Baskin-Robbins chocolate/peanut butter

Night owl, or early bird? Early bird, definitely.

Red, or white wine? Depends on the time of year. Red in the winter, white in the summer.

Roller Coasters or Water Rides? Water rides. Can’t handle roller coasters any more.

Swimming in the ocean or a pool? Well, I have a pool, so probably the ocean.

Walking or fitness club? Walking. Don’t like gyms. I feel too self-conscious.

Any last words?

Well, I’d like to thank you very much for hosting me. I thoroughly enjoyed answering your questions and I hope that your readers have had a chance to get to know me a little. And I hope they’ll like me enough to take a chance on my work. :-)

Thanks you for chatting with our readers and for allowing Room With Books to be part of your tour!

About the Author

AuthorPicRobin Mahle lives with her husband and two children in Arizona. She found her passion for writing, which later became her second career, after spending 20 years in the construction industry.

Having always been a lover of books, Robin attributes her creativity to the wonderful overseas adventures she has shared with her husband of 15 years. Traveling throughout Europe and having lived in England, opened her mind and with that came a steady stream of story ideas inspired by her author-idols in the suspense/thriller genre.

Robin published her debut mystery/suspense novel, Redwood Violet in March of 2013. And in September 2013, the much-anticipated sequel, All the Shiny Things (Redwood Violet II), was released. Both have become Amazon Bestsellers! Now, Beyond the Clearing has also joined the list!  Her latest novel, Landslide, was released in July, 2014. This exciting corporate thriller reveals Robin’s unique voice yet again.

Project Firebird Super Book Blast

Project Firebird

by Nick Green

SBB Project Firebird Tour Banner copy

About the Book

Don’t ask Leo Lloyd-Jones. Ask him how to steal a car, or why he got excluded from every school in Salford, but don’t come to him for help. This whole thing must be a daft mistake – and if anyone finds out, he’s done for.

Earth is on a deadly collision course that nothing can prevent. The only real hope is Project Firebird, deep inside a blast-proof bunker that shelters the brightest and bravest young people. Leo has got mixed up with the likes of Rhys Carnarvon, the celebrated teenage polar explorer, and other child prodigies chosen to keep the flame of civilisation.

Among them is the streetwise Paige Harris, a girl Leo likes a lot (but not in that way). Paige is desperate to rescue her little sister from London before the catastrophe strikes. But no-one is crazy enough to try that. Almost no-one.

Excerpt

‘That which you have there, is a frog.’

Lenka stood in the doorway, smiling. Dressed in a casual blouse and vaguely military trousers, she looked wide awake and not surprised to see them. Leo managed to get his head to stop swimming. Puking on her boots would not be attractive.

‘What is going on here?’ she asked. ‘The midnight feast?’

Rhys wrung the hem of his t-shirt awkwardly. ‘I’m sorry, Doctor Mironov. We couldn’t sleep.’

‘A North American wood frog.’ Lenka nodded at the frozen thing. ‘Rana Sylvatica. A very special animal.’

‘Why –’ Leo coughed. ‘Why have you got dead frogs in your ice box? You’re not French.’

Lenka giggled like a schoolgirl. ‘No, Leo. I’m from St Petersburg.’ She took the lolly in her hand. ‘And this frog, he’s not dead. He’s sleeping.’

‘It’s frozen solid,’ Paige protested.

‘That’s how wood frogs hibernate,’ said Lenka. ‘They’ve evolved to stay alive inside a solid block of ice.’

Rhys made an odd strangled noise. Now he was the one who looked green in the face.

‘We keep these specimens for demonstration purposes,’ said Lenka.

‘Demonstration?’ Rhys spluttered. He seemed unable to take his eyes off the frog. ‘Demonstrating what?’

Lenka tapped her capped teeth with one perfect fingernail.

‘You weren’t supposed to be told this yet. But since you ask, let’s strike while the ironing’s hot. Come. I’ll show you.’

Chapter 1 – One Year Ago

Dan

My hand shot left and landed on the alarm clock, silencing its incessant beeping. There was no point even setting it. I’d been awake for hours, anyway, but inside my nerves were having a hay day. Heartbeats thudded against my chest as I sucked in deep breaths trying to calm myself.

“Fuck it,” I muttered, kicking my heavy comforter off.

I swung my legs over the edge of the bed and ran a hand through my messy morning hair. My eyes traveled to the phone on my nightstand. I picked it up, sent a quick message to my brother, then tossed it beside me on the bed and made my way to the kitchen in nothing but my boxers. After dumping coffee grinds into the maker and setting the machine to brew, I braced my arms against the white countertop and stared down mindlessly while I waited. Your brain knew when something was important. It wouldn’t let you think of anything else. It was all-consuming. Today, it might just be the death of me.

I filled my lucky Denver Bronco’s mug and paced my way through the house. Wearing a path in the floor was the only thing slowing my thoughts. I downed a few sips and stopped in front of a tall bookshelf. A covered box containing all my letters from Jase was nestled there.

It had started out as a joke, but neither of us could stop writing. I told him I had a mailbox at college and then every week I had a letter waiting for me. And every week I’d write him back. I saved them all. His latest had me smiling hard. He was happy. Really happy—thanks to her. I needed to meet that girl. My eyes caught a glimpse of the clock; it was nearly time.

I took a shower and slipped on a pair of worn jeans, a plain tee, and my Nikes. Sucking in a deep breath, I grabbed my keys and left, bracing myself for the day ahead.

I was only an hour into my drive when the red engine light caught my eye. It came on every once in a while, so I pushed it to the back of my mind. My foot pressed a little harder on the gas pedal. As the needle on the speedometer crept higher, a new light on the dashboard lit up. And then it happened—my car started to shut down. “Fuck.” I banged my fist at the wheel as the car slowed. But no amount of banging or cursing helped. I veered to the shoulder of the highway, dodging car after car. Finally, the piece of crap stopped dead.

“No, no, no. Don’t do this to me now.” I pounded the steering wheel again, ready to beat it to death. “Not today. Damn it!” I reached for my phone in the cup holder, dialed the number for Triple A, and within minutes the rep said a tow truck would be on its way. Estimated time of forty-five minutes. Great.

It was too important of a day to be starting out like this. I only prayed things turned around.

Excerpt

“Alright.” He raised his brow as he walked over to the nightstand, writing something on the notepad. “Here’s my cell number, call me if you need anything. I only live about ten minutes away. Seriously, if you need anything, just use the motel phone.”I took the ripped piece of paper he handed me. “Thanks.” I knew I needed it so I could talk to him about my car, but that’s as far as it would go.“I mean it, anything,” he said as he walked to the door, resting his hand against the frame. “Can I get you something before I leave? Dinner?”

“No, I’m not hungry at all, but thanks for offering. I think I’m ready to get some sleep,” I admitted.

“I’ll keep you posted about your car,” he said.

“Thanks,” I said, thankful that I would get to see him again, but feeling like a mixed up basket case for not trusting him. I was a freaking mess.

“Goodnight Cassandra,” he said quietly before closing the door and walking away.

Yeah, right. Goodnight in this place was going to be hard to come by. I locked the door after he left and walked over to the bed. I drew the covers back and found exactly what I’d pictured… Stains. Gross. I pulled the covers back over the bed and decided to sleep with a towel over me instead. I walked into the filthy bathroom, quickly grabbed a towel, and ran back to the room like a scared child. I put on a pair of yoga pants and a t-shirt and was ready to get some rest. It had been an unusually long day between the long drive, the accident, and the hospital. Too exhausted for continued thinking, I let my brain off the hook and laid down on the hard mattress. As I pulled the towel over my body, I noticed my feet were going to be hanging out all night. Great.

I gently laid my sore head back onto the pillow and blinked my eyes a few times. I was right. Sweet dreams were extremely hard to come by in this place, but I tried. I closed my eyes and fell asleep.

Based on the way I felt the next morning, I’d gotten only a few hours of sleep at the most. Between the noises, the creaks, and the foul smell, I didn’t know which was worse. That was, by far, the worst night’s sleep I’ve ever had. The morning sun shone brightly through the yellowed curtains, and I decided to give up on trying to get any more sleep.

I ripped the towel off of me and was about to put my feet on the floor and there it was. Staring back at me as if I were invading his turf was an over sized, nasty, grey rat. “OH MY GOD!” I screamed as I jumped up and stood on the bed, unsure of what to do if he were to start climbing up. I let out another loud scream as it raised itself up with its beady little eyes staring, making it scurry off under the bed. This was even worse; now I couldn’t see the damn thing.

I jumped off the bed and collected my belongings faster than I even realized I could. I threw on a jacket before making a mad dash for the door, slamming it behind me. “Holy shit, that was gross,” I said breathlessly. I took a moment to compose myself, and to think about what to do next. I was not going back into that room. That was for certain.

“Are you looking for a place to stay yet?” I heard his familiar voice from afar. I peeked over the railing, and there he was standing with his arms crossed, wearing a sexy grin, faded jeans, and a tight white tee.

Zoey and the Nice Guy Cover Reveal

Cover Reveal

Zoey and the Nice Guy

by Carter Ashby

zoey-cover

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 18, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions

About the Book

For Zoey Odell, the definition of family is her two best friends, Maya and Addy. So when Maya makes the decision to leave her abusive husband, Zoey is only too happy to lavish her with support and a temporary home. Unfortunately, taking in her best friend also means seeing more of that no good do-gooder, Kellen Bradley.

For Kellen, the definition of family has just been shattered. After finding out that his brother is an abusive monster, he can’t help but question himself and his parents. The one thing he knows for certain is that he’ll do anything to take care of his sister-in-law and her children. For them, he would walk into gunfire, pass through the flames of hell…even go head-to-head with Zoey Odell.

Zoey has no intention of letting him in, but Kellen is done taking her crap. Life has just gotten real and he’s more than ready to shed his nice-guy image. When he finally stands up to her, Zoey starts seeing him in a new light. As the attraction turns mutual, she finds it more and more difficult to hide behind her carefully formed walls. And Kellen is finding himself more and more driven to tear those walls down.

Excerpt

He opened his eyes and for the first time ever, there was fire in them. He stepped toward her and pointed at her. “Here’s how it’s going to be. I’m going to visit my sister and her kids whenever. The fuck. I want. And you’re going to keep your goddamn mouth shut about how much you hate me, especially around those kids. You got no right badmouthing me where they can hear. You understand all that?”

She pressed her lips together to keep from grinning. “Yeah, I understand.”

He stepped back, the fire in his eyes replaced by stunned confusion. He blew out a breath and rubbed the back of his neck. “I’m sorry to have to talk to you like that, but you’ve left me no choice.”

She did laugh, then. She couldn’t help herself. “What’s next, Kellen? Are you gonna spank me and send me to bed?”

He actually blushed.

She stopped laughing and arched her brow. “Is that what you want, Kellen? To spank me?” She was possessed of the desire to flirt. Like a warrior who’d finally met her match on the field of battle, she found a kinship with her enemy. And in her case, a sudden and exciting attraction.

About the Author

Carter Ashby is a hardworking housewife and homeschool mother by day, and a romance reader and writer by night. She lives in rural Missouri with her husband, three children, and two dogs.
