POSING FOR PICASSO is Racing the Clock

I’m delighted to be part of StoryBundle package RACING THE CLOCK with my Supernatural Crime Thriller POSING FOR PICASSO (As Sam Stone). The Bundles are selling fast and it won’t be available for long so get over there now and bag your own collection of great titles from
The Racing the Clock Thriller Bundle, curated by Dean Wesley Smith who said …

“I love reading stories that grab me and don’t let me go until I come up at the end of the story, sometimes breathless from the ride the author has taken me on. Those kinds of stories make me want to instantly get more stories from that author, repeat the ride like getting back on a roller coaster for a second trip around. With Racing the Clock StoryBundle, those were the types of books I was looking for to put together in one place. And since I love just about all genres, I didn’t care if the books were science fiction, mystery, fantasy, or thriller, as long as the author could take me on a ride. Fast-paced and gripping can be done in any area. I just wanted the feeling. The thrill. So I went to find writers I knew had the ability (an advanced ability, actually) to take all of us readers on a breathless adventure. And in this bundle are some of the best writers in the business at doing just that. ”

Here are some selected reviews of each of the wonderful titles involved.

Posing for Picasso by Sam Stone
“A novel that is dark, disturbing, and utterly tremendous entertainment.”
– Ken Bruen

Helmet Head by Mike Baron
“This is pure Grindhouse and I mean that in the best possible way.”
– Amazon Review

Conflict of Interest by Lauryn Christopher
“…Christopher turns the hit-man formula on its head, and in doing so gives us a surprising and entertaining read.”
– Big Al, Big Al’s Books & Pals

The Tower by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
“‘The Tower’ is not only a compelling read, but also an informal treatise on social psychology.”
– Tangent Online

The Case of the Claw by Keith R.A. DeCandido
“In conclusion, this is a great book for those who love superhero novels and something I recommend to people who enjoy taking advantage of prose fiction. In this universe, superheroes and villains can die or change or be disgraced forever. It’s not limited by the conventions of the unlimited comic publishing cycle and all the stronger for it.”
– CT Phipps, United Federation of Charles

Until Death – Death and Redemption Book 1 by Kari Kilgore
Until Death is an innovative take on a familiar story, with layers of authenticity stacked on top of love, loss, hope, and death. Kari Kilgore is an author to watch—her lyrical voice a siren song; her insight, conjured voodoo.”
– Richard Thomas, author of Breaker and Tribulations

Missing White Girl by Jeffrey J. Mariotte
“But his true masterpiece is Buck Shelton. In his hero, he’s crafted one of the finest new sleuths in fiction.”
– Tucson Weekly

Fiction River Presents: Racing the Clock by Allyson Longueira
“… fans of the unconventional will be well satisfied.”
– Publishers Weekly on Fiction River: Pulse Pounders

I've been keeping this under wraps for quite some time. But I have been given the go ahead to 'mention' that I have signed a book deal with a new major publisher.

This title will be published in 2020 and is a main stream thriller.

Because this is a different genre to my usual works I'll be writing thrillers under my married name SAMANTHA LEE HOWE.

I can't tell you more about the book at this time, but I will say this I'm incredibly proud of it.

Thank you for supporting me over the past 12 years: I hope you will also be interested in my forthcoming new works too.

I'll reveal more on this when I can.
