    Reader's Entertainment Radio Presents: Heather Graham

    in Books

    Reader's Entertainment Radio welcomes NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, Heather Graham to the show on Thursday, March 26th at 6pm EST!  With over one hundred and fifty books and novellas to her credit, her latest novel, The Dead Play On, continues the tradition of excellence for which Heather Graham is well known!


    Book Blurb:


    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.

    Authors of Children's Books: Why Do They Do It ?!

    in Culture

    There is more to being the author of childrens books than you know.


    By Mary Rodd Furbee


    1. Consider why you want to write children's books.
    If you want to write books for children, it helps to be a little crazy. I developed a passion to write nonfiction biographies for middle-school children about four years ago. My daughter's experiences made me realize that there were hardly any children's books on America's founding mothers. It hit me, hard: This was what I had to write. There was a need. The subject was fascinating. I knew I could do it, and found the prospect exciting. If you have a similar passion, perfect. If not, perhaps you are meant to do something else. It's hard to write books, harder still to write books for children. It's difficult to get published, and you'll face a lot of rejection.


    2. Don't expect to make big money or make it quickly.
    Writing books for children is like starting a business. You must invest both time and money. I hoped to make money writing my first books, but I didn't. Four years and six published books later, I still haven't made as much money as I could have in most professional writing or editing positions. It's the rare children's book that hits the bestseller list or wins a Newbery Award, and the rare full-time children's writer who makes a living.


    3. Read children's books.
    When I decided to write biographies of women in American history, I read biographies, histories, books about writing biographies, and lots of middle-grade fiction and nonfiction. It's amazing what you can learn by reading the books you want to write - be they board books for infants and toddlers, picture books, early readers, middle-grade novels or young adult nonfiction. Read the best authors - over and over. If you can, take a class in children's literature or writing for children.

    Critical acclaim has greeted Alan Russell's novels from coast to coast. Publisher's Weekly calls him, "One of the best writers in the mystery field today. The New York Times says, "He has a gift for dialogue," while the Los Angeles Times calls him, "A crime fiction rara avis." Russell's ten novels have ranged from whodunits to comedic capers to suspense, and his works have been nominated for most of the major awards in crime fiction. His novels have garnered him a Critics' Choice Award, The Lefty (awarded to the best humorous mystery of the year), and two San Diego Book Awards. A native and long-time resident of California, Alan Russell is a former college basketball player who these days barely can touch the rim. A proud father of three children, Russell is an avid gardener and cook, and fortunately is blessed with a spouse who doesn't mind weeding or washing dishes.  Visit Alan's Amazon link to purchase his books at  http://amzn.to/1MKnpuX.

    Author Nick Pirog on "Henry Bins", "Thomas Prescott" on Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes author Nick Pirog.  I read 3:00a.m., Nick's novella and was completely captivated.  I read his "Thomas Prescott" series too and was sold on his funky writing style.  Here is what I learned about Nick.  "Many authors have shaped my writing style, but I put three writers on a pedestal; John Grisham, Nelson DeMille, and Michael Crichton. The first two authors are basically the antithesis of one another.  John Grisham's stories are so good  that you don't care that his characters don't jump off the page. Nelson DeMille's characters are so grand and hilarious that you don't care what happens in the story.  And last, M.C. (RIP), who somehow carved out a genre all his own and for that alone, I cherish his works."  To purchase Nick's books go to http://amzn.to/1JE9Kco  or visit his website at http://www.nickthriller.com/.  THIS IS A LIVE INTERVIEW SO JOIN US BY CALLING 347-633-9609.
