Author contest

For 10 days, Badass Book Society is running their quarterly contest to give a 1-year membership to a Badass Author. This also serves to announce two new programs they will be implementing; inclusion in the quarterly Badass Sampler Anthologies and a new book-specific audio/visual short ‘podcast’ that will help promote each book the author has and will be shared and marketed to national media programmers.

During the running time of the contest, the normal application process is suspended and anyone is eligible for membership. Also, anyone who wants to purchase a membership now is automatically entered in the drawing to have their next year’s membership fee waived.

I can Hear them: Into The Light By Darcia Helle

I can hear them: Into The Light by Darcia Helle
I really enjoyed this story! We have humor, romance and ghosts. The mystery is a murder, Max Paddington’s murder. Max was killed outside of Chili’s on the same day his wife Rachel asks for a divorce, coincidence? Max doesn’t think so. He hovers over his body and realizes no one can see him, he’s screaming to ask his wife about the murder. He feels a sizzle up his spine and sees his grandfather with his hand held out asking him to go into the light, Max explains why he can’t go yet, another sizzle and he’s in Joe Cavelli’s car, Joe is a sleuth, but Max doesn’t know that. When Joe hears Max they flip out. Max can’t figure out why Joe can hear him, but Joe’s not surprised. Can Joe help this clumsy ghost figure things out so he can go into the light? Read this book to find out, it’s hilarious. There is a message about life, don’t miss it.

When Tristan tries to go on with his life, Arianna makes a horrifying discovery about Tristan. Read this awesome story to find out if their able to be just friends.
