Why Write About Drones? An Interview With RC & JP Carter

    Check out our most recent interview on author Fredrick Lee Brooke's website.
Why Write About Drones? With Authors RC & JP Carter: http://frederickleebrooke.com/wp/2015/09/why-writer-about-drones-with-authors-rc-jp-carter/ 

 The growing public obsession with drones is a worldwide phenomena. The now peaceful and legal use by law abiding citizens in the largely unregulated arena of drones, is currently untapped by the criminal element. The novel CLONE DRONES explores not only the use of drones, but the potential use of  3D printing to reproduce existing weaponized drone technology.

CLONE DRONES explores that possibility. Jack Magnus said in his Readers' Favorite Review:
     "Clone Drones... is a fast-paced and enjoyable thriller that blends politics, high tech and organized crime. ....Clone Drones also exposes the inherent risks of drone technology as an effective assassination tool."

Warren Bell is an award-winning Indie Author who served almost 29 years as an officer in the U.S. Navy. His debut novel, Fall Eagle One, was selected as a Semifinalist in Kindle Book Review's Best Indie Books of 2012. The Indie Bookstore later named Fall Eagle One the Best Indie Action/Adventure Novel of the Year.

Warren's second novel, Hold Back The Sun, relates the adventures of two U.S. Asiatic Fleet Lieutenants during the opening months of WW2 in the Western Pacific. It appeared on the Amazon Kindle Historical Fiction/Asia Bestseller list soon after publication in 2013 and has consistently remained there. His third novel, Asphalt and Blood, was published late in 2014.

Warren is by nature a storyteller. He gained familiarity with many areas of the world during a long career in the U.S. Navy, which included two deployments during the Vietnam War with a Seabee battalion. He has since traveled in several countries in Europe. A World War II buff, Warren enjoys researching and writing about the exploits of the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Pen Behind the M.D.

 Hi ya'll,

Today we'd like to introduce the real Mason Lucas, M.D. ....Gary Birken, M.D. His new book ERROR IN DIAGNOSIS is featured on our BROWSE for B page and is a Rx for thrills. We'll let Gary tell you a bit about himself:
Before I first set pen to paper as a novel writer, I was a full time pediatric surgeon. Nine years and six novels later, I am still a busy pediatric surgeon. The question I'm asked most often is; how do you find time to do both? The simplest answer is that when you spend every waking hour pursuing your life's passions, you can always find time. Practically speaking, I try to arrange my surgical schedule to leave some time for writing. But even with the best intentions and planning, it's not always possible to write every day. It's the price one pays for having a day job. Fortunately, vacations and weekends off offer a wonderful opportunity to write. When I'm not in the operating room or writing, I utilize whatever time remains to play tennis and basketball. I also hold a black belt in martial arts and try to spend as much time as I can in the dojo.

Thanks Gary. So take a minute to drop in and check out ERROR IN DIAGNOSIS.


That's all for now but stay tuned for new reads and authors weekly...Cheers and blog later...Chris(RC).

A Must Read Mystery -

Hi ya'll,

Just perusing some of our reviews on Amazon and discovered a brand new review! As it's from another published author we appreciate the different angle from which they view another author's work.
They gave FLASH ZOMBIES a 5 Star rating! Here's what she had to say:

A Must Read Mystery!
By TMBorgwardt on September 7, 2015
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase Once again I am thoroughly impressed by this well written mystery. I love Ryan and his team of investigators. The Carter's do an excellent job of composing a compelling and thrilling private detective series that always has an unique flare or twist.

This particular story was incredible as the detectives had a couple of different cases that they were working on that eventually intertwined. The detail and knowledge that flows onto the pages regarding being a private detective and the new advances in technology is well thought out, and detailed enough that I was able to visualize the equipment they were using etc.

It was nice to see the characters develop even more and the relationships evolve and deepen. The storyline is engaging and is a true page-turner. There is plenty of action, some violence, some brewing romance, and of course some mystery to keep you interested.

Excellent job and I can't wait to read the next one!!!

Thanks Trista for your kind input! A note to those who are wondering.....FLASH ZOMBIES is neither about zombies or flashers. Pick up a copy today and see for yourself.   http://www.Amazon.com/dp/B00KGHZE6W
