News Day

Hey everyone! I know that I usually do News Day on Tuesdays, but I had some Internet issues over the weekend that put me days behind yet again.

But here we are.

For those of you wondering about what I'm talking about, I share news I pick up around the bloggosphere (or that gets sent to me) once a week, usually on Tuesdays. The news I cover can be anything, from celebrations to cover reveals to requests for help. If you have something you think I should share, please feel free to mail me at mishagericke(AT)blogspot(DOT)com

News from This Blog:


A to Z Challenge

I'll be taking part in the A to Z Challenge, sharing snippets from Endless as I count down to release day on 30 April. 

As such, there won't be a News Day until May, but please send in news snippets ahead of them if you want me to post it then. 

Thursday Feature

For those of you who missed it, I have a regular space open on the blog for other writing bloggers who want to get exposure to my blog's audience, regardless of whether the writer is published or not. If you'd like to book a Thurday, please mail me at mishagericke(AT)gmail(DOT)com. 

The first available Thursday is 26 May.

Coming Soon: 

The Thing That Turned Me

I'm fortunate enough to be part of this fantastic anthology with some amazing writers. Check out this trailer to see who's participating...

Parallels: Felix was Here

Enter the realm of parallel universes!

What if the government tried to create the perfect utopia? Could a society linked to a supercomputer survive on its own? Do our reflections control secret lives on the other side of the mirror? Can one moment split a person’s world forever?

Exploring the fantastic, ten authors offer incredible visions and captivating tales of diverse reality. Featuring the talents of L. G. Keltner, Crystal Collier, Hart Johnson, Cherie Reich, Sandra Cox, Yolanda Renee, Melanie Schulz, Sylvia Ney, Michael Abayomi, and Tamara Narayan.

Hand-picked by a panel of agents and authors, these ten tales will expand your imagination and twist the tropes of science fiction. Step through the portal and enter another dimension!

Out Now: 

Murder & Obsession by Yolanda Renée

Published by Curiosity Quills Press, Murder & Obsession is the third book in the Detective Quaid Series but also a stand alone mystery.

Flames burn between a hardboiled cop and a gifted artist, but soon extinguish as another man’s obsession ignites into an inferno of desire, driving him to destroy the object of his madness…

As wedding bells echo like the ring of toasting champagne glasses in the ice carved mountains of Anchorage Alaska, detective Steven Quaid rehabs his grandfather’s cabin into a honeymoon cottage for his new bride.

When he returns from a hunting trip, Steven’s faced with five police officers, who “Want to talk.” Plagued by two unsolved murders, the Department is searching for answers.

The conversation comes to a deafening halt as the team finds a bloody crime scene in the bridal suite. "Where's her body?" is a question Steven cannot fathom.

Steven’s jaw clenches and his heart races. Images of Sarah streak through his mind.

The silence breaks as an explosion of accusations vibrate through every fiber of his being.

Steven bolts…

Although running is never the smart thing to do, Steven’s not thinking clearly and his escape into the wilderness of the Brooks Range proves almost fatal.

This Steven Quaid mystery is both personal and heartbreaking.
