With the same gripping tension of The Girl on the Train and The Good Girl, The Child Snatcher tells the suspenseful story of a mother trying to save her lazy son from himself and then from an enigmatic woman of dubious character who seems determined to systematically destroy her small family. Claire Wilkins is at her wits’ end with her son, Brandon, a college dropout who spends his time lounging around the house. Claire, tired of seeing him waste his life playing video games and trolling the Internet, gives him an ultimatum: get a job, get back to school…or get out. Brandon decides to move in with a total stranger that he met in an online porn chatroom. This mysterious young woman, Ava, abruptly leads him down a dark path into a dangerous world. Terrified for her now distant son, Claire tries to entice Brandon to return home and discovers the true nature of his toxic and abusive relationship with Ava. But her world explodes when Brandon does the unthinkable. Her only glimmer of hope is discovering that Brandon and Ava are expecting a child. Claire believes she coddled Brandon too much and that she was a terrible mother. But maybe she can get a second chance and be a much better grandparent. Unfortunately, Ava’s plan for hers and Brandon’s child does not include Claire. In fact, Ava’s plan is so nefarious that Claire is willing to risk everything, including her life, to save her innocent grandson. A spellbinding race against time, The Child Snatcher is a timely and terrifying thrill ride that will haunt you long after you’ve turned the final page.
Bart was a poor college graduate without a job and buried in debt.
Author: Gary Turcotte
Bart was a poor college graduate without a job and buried in debt. Things changed when he inherited his uncle's property. It came with a strange farm hand named Alan. The farm didn't provide typical vegetables or animals. Instead it produced marijuana, and wolf-dogs bred for professional dogfights. One dog gave him winnings of eighty thousand dollars in a single match. The dogs were a mix of great dane and wolf. They were fed live animals and shot with steroids to increase their size and anger. They were the ultimate fighting dogs; super sized wolves. Bart had been bitten by the gambling bug. He paid off his debts, but things took a turn for the worse. One dog escaped, and since he was bred and trained to kill he terrorized the town. Brutus swam across the lake and took a baby from the arms of a camper. Wolves were protected and it was difficult to find and trap the individual doing the killings. Bart and his farm hand dressed as game wardens and went after the super sized wolf. They hunted Brutus, but he knew their scent and hunted them.

“Razes, Razes, the Wolf’s prey … Razes, Razes all betrayed…” The Wolf is patient. He is the master of games. Especially when the prize is so attractive. To claim the original Raze for himself. While the Raze gang must stay true to their goal; busy waging war on people traffickers, the Wolf can play to win each of his own desires. The Wolf will stop at nothing to sink his teeth deeply into Raze, into Raze’s boyfriend Kiddo, and into all of the Razes that the underworld market hungers so desperately for. A gritty urban backdrop, gang warfare, a vigilante hero, a corrupt system, and a bisexual awakening. Join the action and enjoy the ride. Interview with the Author: Q. What could readers compare the ‘Raze Warfare’ series to? A. It has a similar tone to ‘The Outsiders,’ with a gang like a family of very different people who need each other. Q. What makes this series different? A. Girls are kick ass members of the gang. Sexualities are open (there’s a bisexual triad romance – why choose?). There are diverse racial backgrounds. There’s some gender bending. The enemy is more covert, but widespread – a corrupt underground system. And the gang members enforce vigilante justice, while battling their own demons – ranging from trauma to learning difficulties. Q. What do you love most about this series? A. I love that Kiddo and Raze are so different – opposites attract. Their deepening, first time gay romance felt so intimate and sweet and real to write.I especially loved including so many diverse kinds of people without feeling the need to centre the story on their race/gender/sexuality/difficulites, because people are people. I loved having them there, as they are, rolling with the punches as people do – rather than the storyline centring on any stereotypes. Q. What do you want your readers to know? A. Hearing from you feeds my soul. Feel free to reach out on Facebook or shelleycass.com. Read, read my pretties! And enjoy.

Th e Frugal Alpaca FarmerA Holistic Approach to Success defi nes the authors mission and purpose for writing the book. Ingrid Wood gives the reader important information on how to structure and manage an alpaca farm. The content of her book is wellorganized and off ers valuable insight based on her research, experiences, and lessons learned over more than two decades of owning a small farm. Ingrid candidly discusses thought provoking issues and clearly spells out positive as well as negative aspects of alpaca farming. I especially liked her exploration of various management styles and care protocols. An open mind, common sense, and frugality must prevail if you wish to build and maintain a viable farm business.
