Brand new #poetry #audiobook – get it #free with Audible 30 day trial

FreezeFrameAudioMP3Well it’s finally here – the FREEZE FRAME international poetry anthology has been re-mastered and is now on sale on Amazon, iTunes and Audible.

The brainchild of the poet Oscar Sparrow, he invited 5 other poets from around the world to write a collection of poems that would ‘freeze the frame’ on our bustling lives.  In addition to their written words, each poet recorded a performance of each poem.  To complete the project, a talented young pianist composed a theme for the anthology with individual motifs for each poet.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to hear works read aloud by these poets, in their own inimitable styles that really bring the poetry to life.

If you would like to get this audio book for FREE here are two suggestions ( you could do both of course!):

1. Sign up for a FREE 30 day trial membership on Audible and get FREEZE FRAME for FREE too. CLICK HERE FOR DETAILS

Double #1 Best Seller for Emma Calin’s Romance Novel & Companion Cookbook

Image

Shannon's Law & Cop's Kitchen

Four weeks after the launch of Emma Calin’s steamy action-romance SHANNON’S LAW and its companion cookbook COP’S KITCHEN, we are pleased to announce that both books hit #1 slots in their best-seller categories on Amazon and reached the top 10 in several others.

SHANNON’S LAW still sits at #1 in Kindle book category British>Humor & Satire and reached #7 in Women’s Fiction>Mystery,Thriller & suspense>Crime and #9 in Literature & Fiction> Erotica>Humorous.  At the same time, the cookbook reached #1 in Food & Drink>Regional & International>UK & Ireland.

With more than 50 reviews worldwide and an average of 4.5 stars Emma is delighted that readers are enjoying the mystery, loving the romance and entering into the social comedy implicit in Emma’s work. She says this is why she writes.

Reviewers say:

“Move over Mr Grey there’s a new Earl in town”

“It’s unusual to find a steamy story that also has good plot and characterization, normally you have to sacrifice one to get the other – the fact that Shannon’s Law had both was one of the key selling points for me. The plot was fascinating and developed well, without being predicable or obvious. The author even managed to throw in a few plot twists that I wasn’t expecting.”

“This is a funny book; the heroine cop is mouthy and hilarious and someone quite new in police-lit.”

“The police side of the story is wonderful, as good as any crime writing that I have had the pleasure of reading and reviewing.  If you are like me just skip about 60 pages of steamy sex scenes and the book is a hit. If you like steamy sex scenes then guess what, you are going to love the book also.”

“This book truly had a little of everything. There were steamy sex scenes (not too bawdy), action & some hilarity, murder, soaked cats & a horse trampling the vegetable garden.”

“There’s a ton of action, a good dose of humor and more importantly, a fun, twisting plot that will hold your interest.”

SHANNON’S LAW Blurb…

Wild child inner city cop Shannon Aguerri walks a dangerous line between her methods and justice. When the bosses lose their nerve, after yet another maverick mission, she is transferred to green pastures to play out the role of a routine village cop. When she encounters signs of people and drug trafficking she homes in on serious millionaire criminals. As a loner she has attracted men but nothing has stuck. She meets Spencer, the hunky and widowed Earl of Bloxington and there is an immediate rapport between them. Their social differences mean nothing to their passion and need. Already in the mix however, is an upper class female rival – who has long plotted her way into the Earl’s bed. The jealousy is an evil shade of green and the anger is a violent scarlet. Often inhibited by a sense of duty and honour, Spencer is slow to reveal his feelings. When Shannon confronts him with the need to choose between her word and that of her rival, he does not immediately support her. All the same, when they are forced together to carry out a desperate rescue mission, their love is stronger than everything ranged against them.
