Breaking News on Caribbean Island



Man Shot Dead Outside Restaurant...

Breathe! It's a Fictional one. 

June 10, Xantrope, West Indies

The island has been thrown into shock with the brutal slaying of a visiting businessman. Orette James was shot to death last night outside The Hummingbird restaurant, on the island’s west end.

His travelling companion, Celeste Davies was also shot in the attack. Ms. Davies remains in hospital. At this time details are sketchy and no motive has been established for the shooting.

The Daily Clarion will be following this breaking story. Complete details have been posted on the Xantrope Daily Clarion website.  Read online or download a free PDF copy.*
 
* Note the account of the shooting is not for the faint of heart or weak of stomach.



This release begins the promotion for the novel, Taming Celeste, scheduled for release on June 28. Yup, this is way, way, late, but please feel free to hop on over and see what the hubbub is about. Also, stick around. There's fun stuff coming up in the next few weeks...even though there's murder and kidnapping involved. In the book anyway.


 Software piracy, kidnapping and murder…a recipe for disaster, with love as the main ingredient.
