( Author, Vinnie Sorce and his new book, Jersey Justice )

 

One of my favorite book websites to visit is my UK buddy, Mr. Kevin Cooper called, “Kev’s Domain ~ Kev’s Great Indie Authors.”

It is a great place for both authors and readers and has a fresh new look to his site. He showcases indie authors, new books, book reviews and more. And being an author himself, he does a wonderful job in presenting many authors and their books and novels on his website.

Now you are wondering why I would give some love to another book promoter? Well, I have known Kevin a long time, and he did my book and author showcase a few years back when my first book came out. AND? Trust me, there are plenty of new indie authors looking for help to promote their books to go around. I recommend many of my book clients and readers to visit Kev’s site.

Great Indie Authors, Presents, … Author, Vinnie Sorce

A Short Bio

Vinnie Sorce is an award-winning* author debuting his first book, Jersey Justice.

He’s been a writer for over ten years, selling articles and short stories along with blogging.

He grew up in North Jersey and currently lives in Arizona with one remaining child that hasn’t escaped yet. He likes to read, watch too much TV, wear his heart on his sleeve, and over examine situations that haven’t occurred yet.

Oh, and he eventually wants to save the world. No super powers are making that a difficult job, though.

*Now, when I say award-winning, I mean an award I made up and gave to myself. It was a beautiful ceremony. I cried.
.

Kev: What is your latest book about?

JerseyJustice.

It’s about a bullied youth who grows up to help people who can’t help themselves. His life is complicated by his off the wall sister, and his best childhood friend, Marci, who is slowly becoming his lover.

Kev: Who or what influenced you to write it?

Janet Evanovich and her Stephanie plum series was my influence. I grew up in North Jersey and loved the idea of having it set in such a familiar place.

Kev: Did you do any specialised research for your story?

Nope. Since the location was so familiar that was easy, and it’s fiction, so I improvised everything else!

Kev: What challenges did you face while writing the story?

The absolute biggest challenge was finding the time to write. A full-time job, and three kids make that difficult.

Kev:  Who is the protagonist?

Jimmy Vincent is my main man. I came up with his name and the title, Jersey Justice, first.

Kev: What would you say is the protagonist’s greatest weakness or obstacle and why?

His biggest weakness is his want to save the world and knowing he can’t do that.

Kev: What would you say is the main antagonist’s greatest strength?

He doesn’t realize it, but his greatest strengths are the people (characters) around him.

Kev: Could you provide a short passage from your book to give us a taster?

JerseyJustice“What the hell did you do?” he asked in dismay, hand to his head and covered in blood.

“I fought back,” was all I said calmly with a smile as I walked away, tucking the pistol into my jacket pocket. From now on, it would always be with me. This was a message to the scum of the world. From now on, it would be different.

 

Kev: Do you use some kind of formula when you write?

Not even a little bit. I just sit and write and it comes tumbling out. . . .

Kev: Preference for writing: Day or Night? 

Not so much a preference as necessity. I write at night after work and after dinner.

Kev: What is your editing process?

When I have no juice left I start rereading what I already have and go from there.

Kev: Who creates your book covers?

I have a marketing friend who created this cover.

Kev: How do you promote your work?

Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn I also just hired a promoter who is getting me and the book out there.

Kev: What advice would you offer to new authors?

Don’t give up is the biggest advice I could give. Just keep writing and submitting, or go ahead and self-publish.

Kev: Which two social media platforms do you use the most and why?(Include links)

Twitter and Facebook are the two I use the most. I guess because I understand them, and am the most familiar with them.

Kev: Do you have a website?

https://vinster82.wordpress.com/628-2/

Kev: Is there anything else you would like to add?

I am currently 80 pages into the sequel, Jersey Jezebel. Look for it soon!

Vinnie sorce, everyone!

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.

But the kidnappers have a unique request, which takes Jake by surprise. What is even more frustrating is that his client has lied to him, placing him in a life and death struggle to survive.

As things start to unravel, Jake wonders if this assignment’s linked to a previous case – one where the horrific end result kept him awake for months on end?
And who is this mystery man who keeps stalking Jake?

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.

IMG_3977
(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!

HAPPY READING!

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—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.

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’d never held a gun before. It molded to my hand like it had always belonged there. Suddenly—I 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?

Preview:

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.

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! 🙂 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 “Jersey Justice”. 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! . . .
