Happy 4th of July!

I hope everyone is enjoying the 4th in a safe manner. I’m at home with my family, trying new recipes, playing board games, and reading. I’m currently reading Dark Energy by Addison Brae.

Addison is published by Tirgearr, as I am. We sometimes share emails as a group and I picked up Dark Energy because of something she said in one that moved me very much. She had this to say about the book —

“This has been a bittersweet launch. One where fiction and reality collide. Becker Circle and Dark Energy are set in the service industry, in bars where workers have been hit hardest since the world shut down. Smart young people who party way too much I’ve met inspired some of the books’ characters and events. Some of these real young people have passed away recently—not from a virus, but from conditions related to mental illness and substance abuse that the virus worsened. I dedicated Dark Energy to the service industry as a reminder of how important human lives are. The situation is serious. If a friend is suffering, please, please encourage them to seek help.”

I asked her if I could share that, but here’s the book blurb too. It’s half priced on Smashwords.com, where you can get tons of great books (including mine) for half price during July. Happy Reading!

Cybercrime doesn’t talk. It creeps in and destroys lives right under Gillian’s nose when a cryptojacking scheme lands her boss, Pinkie, in jail. Gillian had just started over with a new career, boyfriend, and confidence after escaping a vicious murder investigation that shattered her ability to trust. Then Pinkie’s arrest leaves her struggling to run his two bars while also unraveling the conspiracy.

Gillian will not let her mentor and friend go down for something he didn’t do. Neither will Jon, the most talented musician on the bar’s stage and the perfect boyfriend…until his good fortune sends her reeling. Gillian forces herself to trust the cops, people who hurt her, and known criminals. Will it be enough to free Pinkie and save her life?

    Thank you Melora for spreading the word so maybe we don’t lose more lives from what I call “the other virus”. Happy Independence Day! Happy reading!
