Wretched Fate: Book Two of the Sam Osborne Mystery Series

Wretched Fate: Book Two of the Sam Osborne Mystery Series

by Kelly Kobayashi The first case in the Sam Osborne mystery series, Twist of Fate, introduced readers to private investigator Sam, his newest client Casey Lewis, and their unlikely ally Danny Jones. Barricaded into the bull’s eye of danger by a blizzard, the trio worked together to unmask the shadowy assailant who was stalking Casey with intent to kill. While Sam focused on evidence and alibies, Danny found himself bound to Casey as an amateur bodyguard… and gradually much, much more. Now our heroes return in the greatly-anticipated second installment, Wretched Fate! This case has Sam sleuthing out the disappearance of treasured Kuan Yin statues from the home of romance novelist Jacob Hardy. These statues have been Jacob’s solace and inspiration, and their disappearance has unsettled his very structured life. Rosalie McGovern, a recently-hired typing assistant, has also disrupted his surroundings, causing Jacob to question his novels, his life’s purpose, and his sheltered heart. Sam Osborne has been described by his creators—mother/daughter writing team F. Sharon Swope and Genilee Swope-Parente—as an ‘old-fashioned gumshoe,’ a sort of ‘tidy Columbo.’ Their books feature solid detective work and richly-developed characters with relationships that readers want to root for. Always an element of romance and a dose of danger, Sam Osborne is definitely on the case! Both Twist of Fate and Wretched Fate are available in paperback and ebook through Amazon and Barnes & Noble!

Starving for some summer sci-fi? Here’s your all-inclusive pass to a new tomorrow. Sun: Queens of Earth is a hot new release from author Yen Ooi and SPMG. This much anticipated sci-fi epic is now available in print and eBook editions from Amazon! Sun – Queens of Earth by Yen Ooi “Even though our children are beyond our reach now, we have faith that the future will be a better place than what we know. A faith that people had previously placed in the trust of religion and God, we now place in ourselves, in humanity.” A Great War has ravaged the Earth and left humankind a shadow of its former self. Faced with the mortality of their race, those who remain press on with a new found humility and strive for equality in their drive to advance the species. Hope lies on the frontier for humanity as new technologies and a profound discovery push them out into space. The chance to begin again is at hand, but will the old fears and the old ways return and hamper mankind’s progress once again? Two girls, the seed of humanity’s greatest aspirations, must find the courage to choose.  Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...

Join us in Kidtropolis!

“So Matilda’s strong young mind continued to grow, nurtured by the voices of all those authors who had sent their books out into the world like ships on the sea. These books gave Matilda a hopeful and comforting message: You are not alone.” Roald Dahl wrote great books, and like many children’s authors who came after him, the stories imprinted on children a world where anything was possible. We swam with Ariel, traveled with Max to where the wild things were, caught a train to the North Pole, shed a tear with Wilbur, and we joined Alice in her adventures…oh the places we went! Now as adults, we can’t wait to introduce these special characters to our children, to see in their faces the delight we experienced not so long ago. This summer, SPMG wants to introduce you to a new children’s book that will without a doubt be a staple in your children’s book collection. Just like the little engine who knew he could, six year old Mya blasts through the pages of Ray Lenard Brown’s new book, Kidtropolis. No ordinary girl, Mya, born with cerebral palsy, learns to overcome great difficulties and obstacles, not unlike the heroines we grew up with. One day, her grandfather, noticing how Mya routinely sits by the window watching the neighborhood kids play, decides that it is time to introduce her to an old family book called The Book of the Imagination. In it is a place inhabited only by children, a magical place where kids rule everything and all your wishes come true, and the place is called Kidtropolis. One evening, while Mya was being tucked into bed, she asked her grandfather “Where do babies come from?” Not knowing how to answer, her grandfather turned to the old family book and began reading. The magic begins as soon as you open the door to Kidtropolis, but you must make sure to keep it open, as while all your dreams can come true, “everybody who smiles and says hello may not be people you want to get to know.” This proves to be valuable advice for Mya when she wakes up the next day…trapped in the book. Buy Kidtropolis on Amazon or Barnes & Noble   Spectacle Publishing Media Group (www.spectaclepmg.com)  was founded in 2011 with a mission to change the publishing world.
