Join hosts Tom & Lou Riddell as they welcome co-authors CK Webb & DJ Weaver to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as CK & DJ discuss what it's like to be writers and they will also talk to us about their newly released book: Collecting Innocents- which is book 2 in the 911 Abduction Series.
CK and DJ are quite the writing duo. Their first book Cruelty to Innocents has received 25 reviews on Amazon.com- 22 of those reviews gave the book 5 stars. CK and DJ are best friends from a small town but they are also mother and daughter and they will continue writing thrillers- and killing people; as long as there is an audience for it. From Collecting Innocents: Highway travel can be lonely and treacherous. Broken down vehicles litter the Emergency Lane like corpses on a battlefield. What if you were alone with no one to call when you found yourself stranded? Your only companion; your small child sleeping in the back seat. What would you do? On I-10 in Louisiana the answer is simple…you use the Emergency Call Box. But while you sigh a breath of relief in the knowledge that help is on it’s way, a much more sinister listener has heard your 911 call.
A man, nameless, wakes up in Manhattan in a stranger's apartment with few memories of who he is. He remembers a life in California and the love of a girl named Sarah—memories that don’t match the life he now finds himself in. Losing hold of what he can say for certain about his life, he turns to a doctor who claims he can help recover more memories through hypnotic regression. But when the sessions start to blur the line between what has happened in his past and what merely could have happened, and memories of the past start to occur in the present, his journey to find his past becomes a fight to stay himself and retain his future. "Gallucci builds a remarkable amount of tension in seemingly banal scenes, layering images and psychological states that at times perfectly recreate Lexus’ mind.... A visceral, ambitious debut." – Kirkus Reviews
What would you do if you were imbued with superpowers?
This is the question posed to a group of high school students who are struck with the powers of telekinesis. This narrative interweaves the destiny of multiple teenagers and unravels the mystery of the object that granted them immortality. Clark, and his girlfriend, Sarah, naturally take to fighting crime when they form a group of superheroes. Other characters are more ambiguously motivated as they use their powers, not for the good of others, but solely to benefit themselves. They live comfortable lives until a mysterious stranger comes a’knocking. He knows their secret and will tell the world unless they pay up. And then there is the tragic fall of John, a young man with a heartbreaking back story whose lust for power and vengeance leads him on a downward spiral into madness.
“Ascension” is part one in an exciting and compelling new YA series that takes the superhero genre to new heights by asking how people truly respond to gaining unimaginable power. "Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely."
A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.
Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.
But, those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire draining the blood from her fiancé Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs--not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.
As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning around to face them, Elle discovers that Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart.
SLAPSHOT OF LOVE::
Slapshot of Love by Gary Pearson is a satirical romantic comedy in the tradition of Nick Hornby’s High Fidelity and Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones’s Diary. Geri Halton is a young woman with an all too real life, working in an seniors’ residence in an industrial town, who finds herself thrown into the glamorous, but artificial world of a reality TV dating show called Slapshot of Love. Smart, funny, attractive, but not ‘model pretty’ or remotely glam, Geri must navigate the phony world of television and determine if her relationship with Ryan, the handsome hockey playing star of the show, is real, or contrived for the TV audience. The hilarious circumstances at both a seniors’ residence and the set of a reality TV show propel the characters through a comic story that also has a lot of heart.

DEAD KILL BOOK 1: THE RIDGE OF DEATH:
Horror master Thomas Malafarina is back with the first book of his Dead Kill series entitled The Ridge of Death. Enter a post-apocalyptic world where zombies still roam, but are the quarry of bounty hunters who are rewarded by the government for helping with the "clean-up."
"Thomas M. Malafarina is the kind of writer I aspire to be. Like a visionary painter, creates mood in the landscape of dread, strong emotions with characters you care for, and suspense that causes a reader's nails to dig deep into their own legs. Stories cut from a cloth of originality that is Thomas M. Malafarina." -- Mark Slade – Nightmare Illustrated Magazine
"Malafarina's vision into a world where zombies are nearly eradicated is fresh and savagely satisfying, making this a must read." -- Keith Rommel – Author of "The Cursed Man"
THE SIGMA CONSPIRACY:
Ex-Special Forces operative turned private-eye J.T. Ryan is hired by the FBI to help them thwart a menacing threat to the global economy. Counterfeit currency is turning up in large quantities and is indistinguishable from the real thing. The federal agency has only one lead. Before being killed in Rome, an FBI agent found a name, Sigma. With not much else to go on, Ryan goes to Italy. There he begins to uncover the operation of a secret cabal of industrialists. The shadowy group, known as the Alliance, is bent on dominating the world's currency markets. It appears they are using new, high-tech forging equipment called Sigma. Their plan is to destabilize the U.S. Dollar and the Euro and replace it with their own currency.
Barely surviving several attempts on his life as he sifts through a harrowing maze of deception and death, Ryan follows the leads from Rome to Mexico City and then to Moscow. As he uncovers the final layer of the conspiracy, he realizes the shocking truth: the real power behind the Alliance is in Washington D.C.
Can he blow the lid off the conspiracy before the global economy collapses?
