My friends! Big to-do’s at ALBTALBS today! Big ticket item up for grabs too, which is only fitting for a book launch. James Fox has visited with us before, which he mentions below. He’s awesome. And he’s here to guest and tell us about his book. Dust Pan Girl.

BOOK LAUNCH + $50 GIVEAWAY

Hi ALBTALBSers!

My name is James Fox. You might remember me from one of Lime’s “Men Who Love Romance” Series.

I have a brand new book out on Kindle, and I’d like to tell you about it. It’s called Dust Pan Girl and its a Suspenseful Thriller. I know that it is a little out of the ALBTALBS wheelhouse, but Lime likes me. (I just sent Her a box of cherries from my family’s farm in Oregon.)

[He did. It + they were really awesome. Apparently I can be bribed with fresh produce. … And cupcakes. >.> For those of you taking notes.]

This is a book that looks at young love’s most horrific conclusion. Janet and Cort were High School sweethearts. Janet got pregnant and had a little girl. She named her Comet since she saw a shooting star the night she was born. 8 years later Janet runs a small bakery. She is constantly being harassed by Cort for drug money. One night she says no to him and he pulls out a knife. Instead of stabbing Janet he looks down to see his knife in Comet. He runs off as Janet rushes Comet to the ER. She’s OK! She saved herself by carrying her most prized possession in her coat. An old metal Dust Pan.

A reporter happens to be in the ER at the time and takes a picture. The story quickly becomes big time news, and it brings to town a masterful con man. He goes on exacerbating the situation for his own profit.

This is a story about manipulation, threats, exploitation, and the incredible bond between a mother and daughter.

A young girl is stabbed in the dark by her own father. Her mother races her to the hospital only to find out she is okay. She saved herself by carrying her most prized possession. An old metal dustpan that she loves to play with in her coat. The story brings to the small town of Hood River Oregon a con man of unquestionable skill, who will exploit the situation for money.

So for my giveaway I just want one thing from you guys. Comments to this post. That’s it. No purchase necessary. No need for posting of reviews on Amazon. (But that’d be neat too.)

Lime will choose the winner herself on Monday, and send me your mailing address. You’ll need to check back on the comments page to see if you won. I will then snail mail you a $50 Visa gift card.

Thanks everyone and feel free to post as many times as you’d like. Posts can be about anything regarding my book.

So do you read suspense or thrillers? What questions do you have for James? He’s giving me carte blanche for picking the winner, so I have to let you know, I like comments with substance! I included the official book blurb for you as well, just to get things going. đŸ™‚
