Lyon Media and Raven South Publishing Announces a New Mystery Suspense Novel Series of Kim Carter…

Murder Among The Tombstones (Book 2 – A Clara and Iris Mystery) by Authoress, Kim Carter

A Clara and Iris Mystery

When Atlanta homicide detectives are called in to investigate the murder of a nineteen-year-old girl found dumped in historic Oakland Cemetery, they immediately begin working the case. But with no leads to follow, and their case log growing larger by the day, the murder quickly grows cold.

Desperate to keep the investigation of her deceased sister going, Ginger Baines hires two novice sleuths to solve the case. Widowed, well into their seventies, and new to the world of private investigating, Clara Samples and Iris Hadley aren’t your average private eyes.
When a second body is found in a neighboring cemetery, the plot thickens. With two bodies wrapped, almost lovingly, in a soft blanket before being discarded in a cemetery, could a serial killer be on the loose?

Joined by their young apprentice Quita, Clara and Iris are determined to stop at nothing to find the killer before they can strike again. But, will their bodies be the next ones discovered among the tombstones? Available on Amazon


“She’s done it again!”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Jill Lucas

Once again, Kim wove a tale that kept me guessing to the very end. Thought I knew who the murderer was but I wasn’t even close. Loved getting reacquainted with Clara and Iris. Remember Det. Pitts? He’s back, too. Get this book….it’s a great read.

MURDER Among The TOMBSTONES ~  (Book 2 – A Clara and Iris Mystery) by Authoress, Kim Carter

My Spotlighted Blog Pick ~ Author, Adriana Gavazzoni “Talks S.E.X.” Behind The Door…

With her award-winning novel “Behind The Door” Author, Adriana Gavazzoni does not always think about sex. She is thinking what next to write in her next novel that will grab readers attention. She has a unique ability to incorporate many elements into her books like murder, suspense, thrills, and yes, sex.

I feel she is the new “Harold Robbins” of our reader generation. So when I visited her blog to see what is going on, I found this amazing post I am about to share some with you. Her blog is a must visit as she shares as a woman, a writer and she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. ENJOY Readers!


SEX and Behind The Door…

Everybody loves sex, to talk about it, to read about it…and I’ve been receiving many questions about my novels and their erotic content.

Behind The Door and Lara´s Journal are psychological and erotic thrillers, but mainly, they are thrillers. Sex in Behind The Door is open, nonjudgmental, and the characters explore their fantasies and sexuality.

Most of the sex scenes in my novels involve Simone’s patients, or they are between Lara and her various lovers, and Simone learns about them while reading an attorney client’s memoir or while analyzing Lara’s journal. Simone is a psychiatrist who treats paraphilia—abnormal sexual behavior—and she writes books on the subject.

After reading my novels, many readers have written to ask about the sexual content, and I would like to answer here, on my blog, some of the questions I’ve received so far:

Question: Is all the unusual sex I read about in your novels real? Do people do those things?

Answer: Yes, I must tell you I research a lot about the subject, and everything I’ve included in my novels is based on things some people actually do—they are all based on people’s fantasies or actual practices, as reported on and researched by psychiatrists.

As I said in a previous post, research is very important for we authors—we need to give our readers information that is credible, and I put just as much time into researching the abnormal sexual behavior as I did studying every other element in my books.

Okay, did I embellish the scenes? Of course, I did—I added touches of humor or sadness—but the acts, the behavior…all those scenes are based on real-life activities.

Question: How do you feel when writing about sex?
Answer: Well, the same way you readers feel while reading about it…you can only experience feelings when reading because I had those feelings while writing.

Question: What is your opinion about unusual sex?
Answer: My opinion is and always will be that anything goes between consenting adults. People find pleasure is all sorts of ways, depending on their tastes and beliefs, but there are two factors that must always be present. One, the participants must all be adults. And two, the participants must all give their consent.

Question: Do you think you are a bad influence on people’s sexual behavior?
Answer: Nobody has that kind of power, and it’s not my intent because I didn’t write a sexual manual, and I don’t teach about sex. Sex is a part of the story…nothing more, nothing less.

And finally, the most common question I get…
Question: Have you ever experienced any of the unusual sexual activities you’ve written about?

Answer: The answer is no, I didn’t, and I don’t intend to… I’m a writer; I don’t need to kill someone to write about murder, and I don’t need to be a masochist to imagine how someone who is might think or behave…

As with every element in my novels—the sex, the mystery, and the murder—I first study and read, and then I imagine who I could use these things in my stories…and then I write about them. That’s how a writer’s mind works.

About The Novel:
Jake Shaw, ex policeman, now private eye, isn’t too fussy about the kind of cases he handles. His cash flow won’t permit him that luxury.

About The Book:
My name is Jimmy Vincent; I “fix” things.
Some people think I’m in the Mafia; I’m not.
Some people think I’m a hit man; I’m not.
Some people think I’m crazy?
They’re right.”

“I live in Jersey. I was brought up on a strict diet of sarcasm, bullies, and being a disappointment to my father. I help people who can’t help themselves. I’ve turned my bullied past into a one-man private army of retribution for the silent majority, too afraid to speak.”

That night-I still have nightmares. It happened so quickly, so effortlessly. Walking to our cars in the far parking lot one fall night, we were jumped from behind. Eric hit the pavement quickly with a gash on his head. Blood trickled down his ear and he was dazed. I looked up to see the attackers. One was a large Puerto Rican kid, over six feet tall, who had hit Eric on the head with a piece of pipe. Even in the chilly air, he was wearing only a black muscle t-shirt and jeans. An American flag bandana covered his head and a diamond stud decorated his left ear.

A snake tattoo on his right arm completed the picture. His accomplice was an overweight black man of medium height with no distinguishing features. He wore a Yankees cap and a black leather jacket. His pants were riding low, and his boxers showed in the rear. I didn’t know what kind it was, but a gun of some sort was stuck in his waistband. As they came at me, I just stood there, frozen. I wasn’t terrified like I thought I should be. My breathing was calm and easy, my eyes focused on the six-footer first. I was angry. I was sick and tired of the world being this way for me, and for others like me.
It had finally become time to fight back .. .. ..  JERSEY JUSTICE.

Now my last new writer and author has shared his true story in ‘Memoir’ form, and what a journey he has been on.
Meet my friend, Author Andrew Branham.

(Amelia, Andrew Branham & DJ)
Now that sweet little one is what Andrew’s book is all about. A personal journey he wrote of the adoption process, including the huge obstacles he and DJ had to overcome to start a family and adopt Amelia. As it got titled, “the most difficult adoption in U.S. history” by adoption experts. Here is more about Andrew.

About The Author:
Andrew C. Branham was born in the culturally rich town of Lorain, Ohio – a few miles West of Cleveland and on the shores of Lake Erie. He is the son of two educators and has an older sister that lives in Michigan.

Andrew attended Lorain High School and then proceeded to get his bachelors degree from Bowling Green State University. He majored in environmental science with a minor in business administration. He graduated at the top of his class and earned a cum laude degree.

Upon graduation, Andrew entered the business world working for a major food company. He quickly climbed the corporate ladder and was soon promoted. As his career continued to flourish, he relocated to different cities 12 times (all over the United States).

About The Book:

“Hit #1 on Amazon’s LGBT Memoirs & Biography section!”

A true story of the challenges endured by two gay men who had the desire to adopt a child.

When Andrew and DJ decided to adopt and bring a child into their lives, little did they know what they were about to endure; yet never did the thought cross their minds to give up. The horrific, pitilessly, and beyond comprehensible hoops one woman would make them jump through demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that little Amelia was going to be much better off in the loving home that Drew and DJ could provide her. Just when you think, how can two people survive such a nightmare and the journey is just about over when little Amelia is born and will be safely in the arms of her loving dads, Sandi decides to pull one more shenanigan that could change their lives forever.

“This Memoir is not just about a gay couple’s desire to adopt. This book is for all couple’s who have the desire to start a family through the adoption system.”

More than 10 million adults have been adopted or fostered in their childhood. Along with spiraling increases in adoptions comes a growing need to disclose the significant flaws in adoption laws that open the doors to fraud, manipulation, and abuse of the system. AMELIA is the first book to explore this dark side of the adoption process through the true story of one couple’s journey through hell. Called “the most difficult adoption in U.S. history” by adoption experts, the book appeals to nearly all families (traditional and non-traditional) interested in adoption, foster parenting, or surrogacy.

An amazing book filled with tips, advice, and eye-opening first-hand accounts, this is one feel-good story that serves an important purpose and fills a critical gap in adoption literature. – D. J. Herda .. ..

A Reader Review by an Anonymous Attorney:
“The best adoption memoir currently on the market. Why is it the best? Because it is 100% transparent and honest. No other book will give you such a candid look at the darker side of adoption. This is a must read for all adoptive or soon to be adoptive families.”

Now I had just finished Andrew’s book and I myself gave it an Amazon & Barnes and Noble 5 Star Book Reviews!
So there you go readers. These are just a few of the Fine Men and their books and novels I have the privilege of book promoting for! Please support these wonderful writers and grab a copy of their new releases today!

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Even though I spent more time sobbing during my reading about Anna and Louis, I am still happy that their love endured. Anna still has her baby daughter to love and reminds her of the passion she shared with Louis. I look forward to reading more of your work.”

Five Stars”  January 9, 2015  By  Julia Kirk

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your book,  September 20, 2014  By Steve Layton (COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, US). . .
Rosie, my dear friend, I remember the day you shared your plans about writing a novel. You never lost your enthusiasm, and over the years I witnessed your dream grow, your passion take shape and the birth of “Echoes from the Oasis”.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your book, you have done a great job and I highly recommend this novel. You transport the reader to your island home, through vivid descriptions, and your depiction of characters is amazing. You have captured the Seychelles Creole culture and painted an amazing picture of life on the islands during colonial times, as your characters from all social background and different ethnicity interact with one another.
Bravo! I can’t wait for the sequel.

Congratulations, your work has its rightful place at the archives of The Seychelles National Library, along with the work of many of your fellow authors from the Seychelles.

5 Stars! November 16, 2014 ~ Author, Catherine Townsend-Lyon

Rosie has done a fine job in promoting her new novel where she had been born and raised, which in opinion, is one of the most beautiful places on earth, The Seychelles Islands.

Not only has Rosie written a beautiful fiction romance, she also shares many of the traditions, ways, and cultures of this beautiful part of the world. And the about a young woman, Anna who blossoms when she finds love. Even one of Rosie’s written characters has my first name, Catherine. Now that made me feel special. But I’m pretty confident that was well planned in her book before we had ever met.

I also have to warn you about this read, when you start reading Rosie’s book, be prepared to have a few late nights as I did. One night I didn’t turn out my reading lamp until almost 2 am. Now that’s a great read! I was so drenched into this storyline, the well written historical sites tells me the author did some research. But then again, when your born and raised where your storyline takes place, it is the past historical background Rosie really shines. She has a wonderful writing style I enjoyed as well.
That’s why I gave this beautiful read a 5 Stars! It truly is worth your time to purchase and read . . .
