Lyon Book and Social Media Promotions Welcomes Author, Vinnie Sorce and His New Book ‘Jersey Justice.’

Hello and Welcome Readers,

I am happy to welcome Author, Vinnie Sorce to our promoted authors lineup here on my book promotions blog. This man of mystery, and the prolific writer of his new book release titled; Jersey Justice is now available on Amazon and Smashwords Books online. He is getting some wonderful book buzz already!

Vinnie and I have seen each other on many social media sites, as he caught my attention with his fabulous sense of humor, which is something we have in common. I also found that he lives in the same state I do in Arizona, USA.  However, he lives in an area of our state that is a wee bit cooler than where I live.

So, Vinnie reached out to me about how I could help him promote his new book,¬†and of course¬†I¬†got right to work doing a little research about this mystery¬†man, and here is what I have learned. I’m honored to have him here as part of our “Family of Authors!”

About The Book:

That night‚ÄĒI 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. The attacker raised his club, but he was too slow. I kicked him in the knee and heard a loud pop just before he let out an ear-piercing scream and fell hard to the ground.

I grabbed for the club and gave his buddy some unexpected dental work before he could even reach for his piece. He dropped to his knees and then fell face first to the pavement unconscious.

I felt under Tubbo and removed his weapon. I‚Äôd never held a gun before. It molded to my hand like it had always belonged there. Suddenly‚ÄĒI felt like I should never be without it again. The feeling was overwhelming and calming at the same time.

Without thinking twice, I stepped behind my unconscious mugger and fired two shots into the back of his head. It was easy, no remorse at all. I couldn’t believe how simple it was. The Puerto Rican kid tried to get up and run on his shattered knee after he saw this, his eyes wild with fear. He didn’t get far. Two shots to the back of his head made it a very short trip.

What had I done?

Product Details

Preview:

My name is Jimmy Vincent;

I ‚Äúfix‚ÄĚ 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.

A scumbag I helped put away eight years ago has come home to roost and to take me down for revenge. To complicate matters, my baby sister, Carmen, unwittingly got involved by marrying (her fifth time) into the problem and not knowing her new husband was a Miami drug lord who she stole ten million dollars from. Oh, and she shot his brother. Double oh, she brought the money, and the gun, to me. Did I mention she was blonde?

My dearest childhood friend Marci has been by my side since 7th grade. Until now, we’ve always remained just friends, but one small slip (translated: we hit the sheets) during the chaotic events following Carmen’s return changed the rules. Had I fallen in love with her while I wasn’t looking? If that was the case, I’d have to stop almost getting her killed so often.

I have to save my sister, save me and possibly save a new relationship.

What the hell? It’s just another day in Jersey  .  .  .

Jersey Justice, By Vinnie Sorce Available now on Amazon & here on  Smashwords Books

Now my readers know I only ask a few questions of my Author Guests. And of course I’m no ‘James Lipton’ of the Actors Studio, but¬†here is how Vinnie answered my questions . . .

1.) What made you decide to become a writer and published author?

“Well, to be honest, at first it was money. We were moving cross-country from Jersey to AZ and I was going without a job. I was reading Janet Evanovich at the time and I said to myself, “I can do this.” Of course it’s not easy or a money-maker, but I fell in love with my characters. Now I just feel like I have all kinds of things to say that I just want to keep going.”

2.)  What do you enjoy the most about writing?

“The creating, being able, literally, to make anything I want.
The lines that make me laugh or cry. The passages that I share with another writing friend because I know she’ll send back, “I love that!”

3.)  What book are you reading now?

“I am reading Devil’s Gate by Clive Cussler. I tend to not read new books because they’re just so darn expensive. I get my books for a quarter at the library, so I’m always behind.

Reviews:
5 Stars for such descriptive, exciting writing style!

August 5, 2015

I love how Vinnie’s personality seeps through into his writing. I feel as though I “Know” him, and I think that is the mark of a very talented writer. Or maybe it’s not even his personality. He very well may be a shy little gentleman who would never say the f-word. Either way, I Felt like I knew the writer and that’s what ever reader wants from a book. It’s the reason we will buy absolutely anything written by JK Rowling or George RR Martin.

Because we feel like we know them just from reading their completely fictional works. Anyway, I almost docked him a star because of umm…”unsavory language” but I figure it’s not his fault I’m a Christian mom so I won’t punish him for it! Ha! Anyway!!! Absolutely wonderful read!! Action, excitement….it does have “adult themes” & “adult language” just a little warning or heads up.
But I loved it and I Love Vinnie Sorce!!
He’s got a fan for life right here! ūüôā¬†and can’t wait to read more from him! . . . .

Action Soaked Silliness!   5 Stars!

August 11, 2015 By: Matt

With tongue firmly planted in cheek author, Vinnie Sorce welcomes us to the world of ‚ÄúJersey Justice‚ÄĚ. This is a novel for those looking for a mental vacation, a chance to step away from their own lives and immerse themselves in a world where existence is a thin veil between a cartoon and reality.

The lead character, Jimmy Vincent, is a caricature, not to be taken seriously but a compilation of some of man’s worst traits somehow fused with a soul seeking justice for those who have been betrayed by society. Surrounded by a myriad of extreme characters from his slutty sister, moronic mafia sidekick, best friend girlfriend, and other bizarre manifestations of humanity we are guided by his narration through action packed twists and turns and bedroom romps that are a hybrid between classic Raymond Chandler gumshoe novels and today’s Hollywood heroes. However there is no time to ponder anything deep here, and the author clearly has not written the book with that in mind, instead it is a getaway from reality that is being offered here and for those who enjoy action soaked silliness they will find themselves drowning in it! . . .

.

Picture

The Detective Cole Sullivan Series continues…

Detective Sullivan and his team in Maine, join forces with Detective Tweed and his team in Minnesota, when murders begin happening in both states with the same MO. Each murder victim has a chalk line drawn around their lifeless body.

People are being murdered. The police have very few clues and are running into dead ends trying solve the crimes.

The chalk lines appear messy and unsophisticated… until… it becomes clear that the chalk lines are not messy after all… they are messages. The police have to follow the clues and work fast to catch the killer before another victim dies.

Book 1 of the series it titled, Edge of Redemption

Edge of Redemption
Edge of Redemption
by Russell Warnberg

Finding the old man was a shock but nothing compared to the madness that was to follow.

An experienced detective in Augusta, Maine, Cole Sullivan begins investigating the death of a schoolmate’s father, Joe Winslow. But when suspicion is cast on Winslow’s children, John and Kate, Cole cannot protect John from the evidence stacking up against him. Soon the homicide investigation Sullivan leads becomes even more complicated when Kate’s husband is murdered and a rash of seemingly unrelated killings breaks out. Russell Warnberg’s novel offers readers a glimpse into the killer’s mind as he turns himself ever more fully over to evil. As Sullivan seeks to solve the mystery, his own position comes into danger as the state government works to resolve the case as soon as possible, even though that may leave the true killer free.

Now BOOK REVIEWS always tell us a book is Worth The Read!

Excellence with a unique flair.
June 8, 2014

 This review is from: The Chalk Line Killer (The Detective Cole Sullivan Series) (Volume 2) (Paperback)
This book has everything that may not fit the normal “structured pattern” of the thriller of the week. Yet, it adds so much more, with characters struggling to live, love and survive. Even though you haven’t an idea who the bad one(s) are, you find that they are also fully fleshed beings. You don’t want to meet them, but they are filled with motive and intrigue, as are the ones hunting them. Who is hunting whom? This has a wonderfully colorful landscape with imagination, cruelty and heart. It stands out because it is not the standard, often packaged bestsellers.

.

So, many of you¬†know me as¬†NOT ¬†a “James Lipton” from “The Actors Studio”….LOL,¬†¬†so¬†I only ask¬†2 simple questions to all my ‘Guest Authors’,¬† as I don’t want them to feel any pressure when I share a little about their craft! So here are the 2 questions I asked of ‘Author, Russell Warnberg’ and how smoothly he¬†answered them…

1.) Was there anything in particular that made you decide to become a novelist and writer?

I had wanted to write ever since my college days at the Univ. of Minnesota, but never had the self-discipline to follow through.  Oh, I wrote some poetry and a short novella years ago, but could never quite pull the trigger. It was just too hard to find the time to dedicate to it.  As I was about to retire, I was presented with a laptop computer and that made all the difference.  I had learned to type in high school and found I could still do it rather well.  It was the computer that made it possible for me to actually follow through with my dream.

The first day I had the computer on my lap, I wrote out the first paragraph of my first novel, not knowing at the time that that’s what it would be.¬† After reading it over a couple of times, I thought this might make for a good crime drama, so I dedicated myself to the task, wrote nearly every day and five months later, the rough draft was complete.¬†The rest is history, as they say.


2.) Has there been anyone exciting thing that has happened to you since the releasing of your books you’d like to share?

I can’t say that there has been any thing that has excited me about the release of my novels.¬† Of course, it was a thrill to sign that first contract and then hold a copy of the finished novel in my hands, but aside from that it has been rather anti-climatic.¬†The old saying about it being the journey that is the best part, rather than the destination, I have found to be largely true.
Maybe the best thing is that I have found a second career that can occupy me for the rest of my life, if I choose. Being able to get up each day and have something meaningful to do is the key. To have a lot of people read and enjoy my work would be the icing on the cake.

So I’d like to Thank Author, Russell Warnberg for letting me¬†share his craft of writing and authoring books with all of you¬†today.¬†You can also connect with Russell¬†on Twitter! @RussellWarnberg¬† and on his website here http://russellwarnberg.com
