Play a song for me…
Musicians are being murdered in New Orleans. But Arnie Watson apparently died by his own hand. When Tyler Anderson plays the saxophone he inherited from Arnie, a soldier and musician who died soon after his return, he believes he sees visions of his friend's life—and death. He becomes convinced Arnie was murdered and that the instrument had something to do with whatever happened, and with whatever's happening all over the city…
Tyler knows his theory sounds crazy to the police, so he approaches Danni Cafferty, hoping she and Michael Quinn will find out what the cops couldn't. Or wouldn't. After all, Cafferty and Quinn have become famous for solving unusual crimes.
They're partners in their personal lives, too. Quinn's a private investigator and Danni works with him. When they look into the case, they discover a secret lover of Arnie's and a history of jealousies and old hatreds that leads them back to the band Arnie once played with—and Tyler plays with now.
They discover that sometimes, for some people, the line between passion and obsession is hard to draw. Only in uncovering the truth can they hope to save others—and themselves—from the deadly hands of a killer.
We have two features tonight on this great show

Hello Everyone, my name is Michelle Cornwell Jordan one of your hosts and my co-host Jamie White is also joining me. Today we will have the opportunity to chat with the talented author Christopher Stone regarding his latest release Frame Of Reference as part of his Premier Virtual Author Book Tour!
Christopher Stone created Re-Creating Your Self. A Blueprint for Personal Change that he first developed for himself, the journalist went on to teach the principles and processes of Re-Creating Your Self to others – first, in private sessions, later, in workshops and seminars, and, finally, for California State University Extended Education. Eventually, one of his students suggested he write a book version.
Re-Creating Your Self was first published in hardcover by Metamorphous Press, and subsequently published in a trade paperback edition by Hay House. It has since been published in Spanish, Swedish and Hebrew language editions.
He went on to co-author, with Mary Sheldon, four novellas for a Japanese educational publisher, and then, also with Mary Sheldon, the highly successful The Meditation Journal trilogy of hardcover books.
Nicety was born and raised on the south side of Chicago. She began her love of writing in the third grade. Many teachers pushed her to expand her knowledge of words, teaching her how to put them together to make them flow like melted butter. During her teen years she put her creative writing on hold and had an affair with another, graphic design. It wasn't until college that she began writing again, taking advanced creative writing and English classes. One professor caught on to her gift. He began to encourage her to publish her work and share her literary talent with the world. Upon graduating from Kennedy King College in 2010 with an Associates in Arts, that's exactly what she did. She now has several shorts, novellas and full-length novels under her belt. All of her books have topped the charts of one or more Amazon Bestsellers Lists at one point in time. Her goal is to bring that accomplishment over to the New York Times Bestseller list as well. To date, Nicety's most honored award is receiving the 2013 AAMBC BREAK OUT AUTHOR OF THE YEAR. She has also been nominated for Best Erotica Novel 2014 by DJ GATSBY BOOK CLUB.

She will go to the end of the earth and back to see that the love of her life, Carter, is the one who takes her there. But there are just a few obstacles in her way in the form of two devious brunettes, Salina and her daughter Nina. If she can get past those two the world will be her oyster. A new love threatens to make life complicated for her and Carter as well. But when secrets come into play and one of her enemies finds out and tries to blackmail her and Liv reaches her breaking point. Could this be another episode of Snapped or will Liv be able to make it to the alter unscathed and keep her secrets hidden in the process?
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan never thought she’d be a writer. Not really, but she has written over twenty novels and novellas, including the very popular Redwood Pack, and Montgomery Ink series. Join me on Thursday, January 29th at 6pm EST, as I chat with Carrie Ann about her latest novel, Wicked Wolf: A Redwood Pack Novella (1001 Dark Nights).
The war between the Redwood Pack and the Centrals is one of wolf legend. Gina Eaton lost both of her parents when a member of their Pack betrayed them. Adopted by the Alpha of the Pack as a child, Gina grew up within the royal family to become an enforcer and protector of her den. She's always known fate can be a tricky and deceitful entity, but when she finds the one man that could be her mate, she might throw caution to the wind and follow the path set out for her, rather than forging one of her own.
Quinn Weston's mate walked out on him five years ago, severing their bond in the most brutal fashion. She not only left him a shattered shadow of himself, but their newborn son as well. Now, as the lieutenant of the Talon Pack's Alpha, he puts his whole being into two things: the safety of his Pack and his son.
When the two Alphas put Gina and Quinn together to find a way to ensure their treaties remain strong, fate has a plan of its own. Neither knows what will come of the Pack's alliance, let alone one between the two of them. The past paved their paths in blood and heartache, but it will take the strength of a promise and iron will to find their future.
The Fairy Tale Series - from Gail Pallotta
Mildred Colvin’s son, Jonathan, suggested his mother and each of her critique partners write a fairy tale and self-publish them.
We all agreed, saying we’d be there for each other if any of us got stuck during the process.
Mildred, who’s self-published over twenty books, spearheaded the effort. Vanessa Riley, who’s a talented designer as well as writer, volunteered to create a cover for each story.
We’re a laid-back group, so no one set rules about which fairy tales we chose or what direction we took with the retelling. We wanted and needed to make them consistent though.
First we discussed length and decided on novellas. Considering several options on how to tie them all together, we chose the location. June Foster had already started her story in a town called Fairwilde. We all agreed to put our characters there, but instead of having them in a particular town and state, we created Fairwilde Kingdom. I think this was important because it gave us a way to use more than one setting for our stories. Vanessa suggested the same size for the covers along with a title, sub-title and series name. We call each book A Fairwilde Reflection Novella.
We started writing and critiquing immediately. Working in our fantasy worlds for a year brought us lots of joy. We hope the novellas will do the same for our readers.
First out was At the Edge of a Dark Forest, a retelling of Beauty and the Beast by Connie Almony; next, Red and the Wolf, a version of Little Red Riding Hood by June Foster; third, Mirror on the Fall, an adaptation of Snow White by Mildred Colvin; fourth, Swept Away, a twist on Cinderella by Vanessa Riley and lastly Mountain of Love and Danger.
Hal Bodner is the author of the best selling gay vampire novel, Bite Club and the lupine sequel, The Trouble With Hairy. He tells people he was born in East Philadelphia because so few people know where Cherry Hill, New Jersey is located. The first person he saw ever saw was the doctor who delivered him, C. Everet Coop, the future US Surgeon General. Thus, Hal was ironically destined to become a heavy smoker.
He moved to West Hollywood in the 1980s and has rarely left the city limits during the past several decades. Hal is so WeHo-centric that he cannot find his way around Beverly Hills, the next town over. Hal has been an entertainment lawyer, a scheduler for a 976 sex telephone line, a theater reviewer and the personal assistant to a television star. He once owned Heavy Petting, a pet boutique where all the movie stars shopped for their Pomeranians. He also owned an exotic bird shop.
Hal has also written a few erotic paranormal romances -- which he refers to as “supernatural smut” -- most notably In Flesh and Stone and For Love of the Dead. His comic gay super hero trilogy will debut in 2015 with Fabulous in Tights to be followed soon thereafter by A Study in Spandex. He has recently agreed to write a series of mystery novellas featuring a gay detective and his sidekick, the madam of a bordello.
Hal recently married a man roughly half his age who had no idea that Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland were related. He believes that the use of hair dye is rarely an adequate substitute for .
