Outrageous October by Florida novelist Barbara Levenson


Outrageous October by Florida novelist Barbara Levenson Released:Levenson’s latest Miami Murder Mystery Now Available Nationwide

MIAMI, Florida -- Outrageous October, the latest mystery by longtime Miami resident Barbara Levenson, is now available nationwide.

The third novel in Levenson’s critically-acclaimed mystery series featuring plucky Miami lawyer Mary Magruder Katz,Outrageous October is available in both a trade paper edition ($11.99) and an eBook edition.

About Outrageous October:   Outrageous October finds Mary Magruder Katz at a crossroads in both her professional and personal life. When she discovers her sexy Latin boyfriend sneaking away to rendezvous with his ex-, Mary promptly packs up her SUV, along with her trusty canine sidekick Sam, and hits the road.  Destination:  High Pines, Vermont. A change of scenery would do her good—and an offer to stay at a friend’s summer home is too tempting to resist.

But Mary soon discovers that her temporary residence was the scene of an unsolved murder just a year before. Never one to leave well enough alone, Mary starts to investigate the cold case—much to someone’s dismay.

Following a few chilling circumstances that are almost enough to send her packing, Mary meets Dash, an appropriately dashing local attorney who persuades her to do some legal work—and angles for some overtime with her.

Meanwhile, Mary reconnects with her wealthy client Lillian Yarmouth under horrible circumstances. It seems Lillian’s daughter Sherry, a student at Dartmouth, has vanished into thin air and Lillian needs Mary’s help to find her missing daughter. 

And if that weren’t enough, Mary gets a trial-by-fire taste of small-town legal work when a neighbors’ spat turns into all-out warfare. At the root of the battle:  tree removal. It sounds innocuous enough—until the local “tree Nazi” is murdered.
There’s something sinister afoot in this sleepy little town—and amidst the falling leaves and blustery autumn winds of Vermont, Mary Magruder Katz faces an extraordinarily colorful Fall. But if Mary doesn’t watch her step,  this Fall could turn deadly…

An outrageously charming—and supremely suspenseful—new read from Barbara Levenson, a judge-turned-author hailed as “John Grisham in spiked heels,”  Outrageous October is a delectable, delightful, to-die-for tale.

Visit Barbara Levenson online at:  www.barbaralevenson.com.

Outrageous October (CreateSpace, ISBN: 978-1480093669, 306 pages, Category: Mystery) is now available nationwide. For more information, please contact Maryglenn McCombs by phone – (615) 297-9875, or by email –maryglenn@maryglenn.com.

Backcountry Lawman by Bob H. Lee
(Available in hardcover and eBook March 12, 2013)



In the underbelly of Florida, hardened poachers operate in the dark, out of sight and away from residents who sleep soundly through the night. But poachers are not the only midnight hunters. In the state’s public wilderness tracts, cattle ranches, and water courses, wildlife thieves are stealthily and silently tracked.
Most people have never imagined the often dicey, comical, and sometimes bizarre job of a Florida game warden. Backcountry Lawman tells what it’s like to catch an armed poacher in the act--alone, at night, without backup or a decent radio to call for help. These stories describe the cat-and-mouse games often played between game wardens and poachers of ducks, turkeys, hogs, deer, gators, and other species. Few people realize that "monkey fishing"--electrocution of catfish--had the same outlaw mystique in the rivers of Florida as moonshining once did in the hills of Georgia and Tennessee.
With thirty years of backcountry patrol experience in Florida, Bob Lee has lived through incidents of legend, including one of the biggest environmental busts in Florida history. His fascinating memoir reveals the danger and the humor in the unsung exploits of game wardens.



Lt. Bob H. Lee (ret.) spent over three decades as a water patrol officer on the St. Johns River and a land patrol lieutenant in Putnam, St. Johns, and Flagler counties. Before retiring in 2007, he taught man-tracking classes through the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Close-Up Talk Radio spotlights author Janet Horton



Posted on February 15, 2013 at 10:20 AM EST

Lake City, FL -Everything we do in our life is our choice. How you perceive those choices determines your happiness. If we can’t come to terms with the choices we’ve made, we can’t find peace of mind.

A self-described work in progress, Janet Horton is the author of Me, Myself and I Surviving, a pictorial journey through her remarkable life with descriptions as well as thoughts culled from her journal. First published in 2010, Me, Myself and I Surviving is the result of Horton’s trip around the world, a desperate act of survival.

“I’d gone my whole life up until writing this book believing I’d accomplished nothing,” says Horton. “When I sat down to write this book, I came to terms with all the things I had accomplished and learned I had really come a long way from where I started. For the first time in my life I began to feel confident.”

Raised in a dysfunctional family, by the time Horton was eight years old she was caring for her two baby siblings, keeping a house for six people, cooking meals and doing laundry. Everything a wife or mother normally does fell to Horton.

“I was born an old woman,” recalls Horton. “It wasn’t my burden to bear. I never had a chance to grow up. I never had a chance to learn. I didn’t even know who I was. I had no idea how to properly cope with life and function.”

Tragedy struck in July 1991 when a car accident left Horton severely injured. Wheel-chair bound and destined for a long-term care facility for the rest of her life, Horton rebelled and booked herself an around-the-world plane ticket. That trip provided the foundation for her catharsis. She’d faced death; whatever else life might throw her way had to be easy.

“When I traveled around the world, that’s when I started healing. I kept a daily journal of my frustrations and aggravations, the things that made me happy, made me cry,” says Horton. “You get to go on that trip with me and experience what I went through.”

Close-Up Talk Radio will feature Janet Horton in a four-part interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 18th and February 25th at 2pm EST and with Jim Masters on March 4th and March 11th at 2pm EST.

Listen to the show www.blogtalkradio.com/closeuptalkradio. If you have a question for our guest, call (347) 996-3389.

Janet Horton’s book, Me, Myself & I Surviving, is available for purchase at Fine Images Printing, fineimagesprinting@gmail.com, 352-222-4118 and Amazon.com.

Of Guilt and Innocence by John Scanlan



ABOUT THE BOOK:
The abduction of five-year-old Ashley Wooten from her own front yard rattles everyone in the quiet, upscale community of Boca Raton to their core, but no one more so than the little girl's father, Tom Wooten. As the grieving father and successful businessman becomes desperately entrenched in the stalled investigation into her disappearance, he will be forced to reveal secrets from his past, at the cost of his once comfortable life, in an effort to jumpstart the search to bring her home.

Meanwhile, in a seedy neighborhood in the town of Davie, an elderly murder victim is discovered and linked to the long-dormant South Florida Strangler. As clues breathe new life into the dwindling task force responsible for hunting the serial killer, a suspect finally comes into focus. As the task force zeroes in, the detectives searching for Ashley Wooten unearth clues of their own, bringing the same suspect into their purview. With both investigative teams certain the same man could not be responsible for all these crimes, yet neither willing to budge, it becomes a frantic race to discover which theory, if any, is correct before Ashley or another victim runs out of time.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
John Scanlan is a police officer on the picturesque island of Palm Beach in South Eastern Florida. After moving south from the small, Western New York village of Le Roy in 2005, he subsequently fell in love with South Florida's tropical beauty and laid back lifestyle, which is the backdrop for his first novel, Of Guilt and Innocence.

A graduate of Brockport College, John's previous endeavors include training with the United States Border Patrol in Charleston, South Carolina, and working as a legal aid for the former Immigration and Naturalization Service in Buffalo, New York. He currently resides in Palm Beach County, Florida, with his wife and two small daughters.
