What is BITS? We start with the varied definitions of bit. A bit can be a small portion, degree, or amount such as a bit of lint; a bit of luck. On the other hand a bit can be a brief amount of time, a moment as in Wait a bit. Or how about a short scene or episode in a theatrical performance? Or a bit part? Keeping with our theatrical theme, a bit can be an entertainment routine given regularly by a performer; an act. Let’s take our definition of bit further. A bit can be the sharp part of a tool, such as the cutting edge of a knife or ax or a particular kind of action, situation, or behavior as in I got tired of the macho bit. How about a matter being considered as in What's this bit about inflation? The Brits consider a bit a small coin: a three penny bit. BITS for our purposes are an amalgamation of all and is about our bit to contribute and share by bringing you a bit of knowledge as information and entertainment, and as a matter to be considered. So have a listen to our brief, daily dose of BITS where a little knowledge goes a long way brought to you by the artist of communication Halli Casser-Jayne, host of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
Topic: Fitting Into Your Genre
As a child, Rob Kaufman was always fascinated by the stories recited by those around him and the words used to tell them. As he got older, his need to tell his own stories grew, as did his ability to share them in exciting and captivating ways. However, he wanted to share more than just stories. His primary desire was to create characters with whom people could relate, while at the same time bringing them through a journey from which most would crumble.
His degree in Psychology was the first step toward getting beneath the surface of the people in his life. What followed was a lifelong search for what makes people tick - what forces them to become evil when deep down in their heart of hearts, they are yearning for love. Rob's characters walk this search with him, deep into the human psyche, creating psychological thrillers from every day events.
Rob's first book "In the Shadow of Stone" continues to receive great praise and is selling well in both electronic and paperback formats. His current book, "One Last Lie" is much darker than his first, with characters who hold bits and pieces of strangers he's known, friends he's had and lunatics he's only read about.
"This book hits home for me," says Rob, who has been with his partner for 25 years. "There were a few pages that made me laugh out loud as I wrote them... and many that made me cry. And the great thing is, I'm finding that many readers of this book are experiencing the same emotions."
Through social and other media, Rob hopes to get "One Last Lie" into the hands of millions, so that they, too, can experience the ups, downs, twists, turns and final tragedy that has helped make this book a Five-Star contender.

Suspense Radio is back with another action packed show. 90 minutes and three author interviews await you.
First up we have James Ziskin, then we have Allen Eskens, finished up with Mark Pryor.
James Ziskin: Stone Cold Dead
December 21, 1960, the shortest day of the year: Fifteen-year-old Darleen Hicks slips away from her school bus as it idles in the junior-high parking lot, waiting to depart. Moments later the bus rumbles away without her, and she is never seen again.
Allen Eskens: The Life we Bury
College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same.
Mark Pryor: Hollow Man
Dominic is a prosecutor, a musician, and an Englishman living in Texas. He's also a psychopath. His main goal is to hide his condition and lead a seemingly normal life in hopes to pay off his debts and become a full-time musician in Austin's club scene. But on one lousy day his carefully-controlled world starts to shatter: he's demoted at work and accused of stealing a fellow musician's song.
He also meets a beautiful woman in a lime green dress--perhaps the biggest threat to his safety of all. At her urging, Dominic hatches a plan to steal a van he knows will be filled with cash. He picks two friends as accomplices, insisting on no guns and no violence. But a security guard catches them in the act and simple theft turns into capital murder.
Suspense Radio is pleased to bring you three great authors today in this 90 minute show.
John Papernick: The Book of Stone
Jonathan Papernick's The Book of Stone is a psychological thriller with a complex soul. In the tradition of writers like Robert Stone and Ian McEwan, he describes the quest to save oneself by redeeming history, and the perilous consequences that arise from confusing the two tasks. It's a harrowing, distinguished book.
John Connell: Ruins of War
A chilling novel of murder and madness in post-World War II Germany…
Winter 1945. Seven months after the Nazi defeat, Munich is in ruins. Mason Collins—a former Chicago homicide detective, U.S. soldier, and prisoner of war—is now a U.S. Army criminal investigator in the American Zone of Occupation. It’s his job to enforce the law in a place where order has been obliterated. And his job just became much more dangerous.
Allan Topol: The Washington Lawyer
My eleventh novel, The Washington Lawyer, is a fast-paced political thriller. I have taken a one book interlude from Craig Page to delve into Washington intrigue.
In the high-stakes world of Washington politics, hot shot lawyer Andrew Martin is being put to the test. When long-time friend Senator Wesley Jasper calls, it's with explosive news-a sex tryst at Martin's beach house in Anguilla has gone awry and former model Vanessa Boyd is dead. Just how far will Martin go to secure the Chief Justice nomination he's built his entire career on?
