Post Review Interview With Lynette Sofras

The 131 Preview Review is pleased to welcome 

Author Lynette Sofras.

Until two years ago, Lynette worked as a teacher, running the English Department of a busy London secondary school. Prior to that she spent several years living and teaching in Greece. She gave up teaching to focus on the writing and has published three contemporary romances. The Apple Tree (December 2011), which won the grand prize in Inspired Romance Novels' writing contest; Wishful Thinking (April 2012), and Shopping for Love (June 2012). In Loving Hate (November 2012) was her first Romantic suspense. Killing Jenna Crane (January 2013) is a slight genre departure for Lynette- a psychological drama/ suspense.
Lynette lives with her family in an early Victorian cottage in a historic village on the Surrey/London borders. When not writing, she is an avid reader, loves catching up with friends, films and theatre, or trying to tame her garden and the family's rather eccentric cat.

The 131 Preview Review presents Author Lynette Sofras' Unworkers

      Ahh, the world of women’s fiction. Strangely, this is not a genera that I have been particularly exposed to over the years. To say that I stay far away from it would be an understatement likened to “The Atlantic is a big pond.” My reasoning is simple, I am not a woman concerned with marriage and children. I don’t have either as a concern in my life so there is no draw for me, to the concerns of its dramas and woes. But as a reviewer, I must leave my preferences at the door, and put on my Professional Reader Hat. I’m rather glad that I did.
       The book is a work in progress, a tale from Lynette Sofras, which she herself calls, “deeply personal.”

Post Review Interview With Author Mitt Winstead

Bio: Mitt has two books published - Evil in the Mirror and Day Stalker. When not writing, Mitt likes to spend quality time with his wife, three dogs and an evil parrot named Pickles. He also likes to ride Harleys and prospect for meteorites in northern Arizona and Quartzsite, Arizona.

Quote: "I am in the process of finishing my third book, The Phoenix Code, which will complete the trilogy. As you can tell from my books and blogs, writing is my passion. I measure success by the feeling I get inside when I read my own work. I say this with modesty and humility because if you don’t like your own work, how do you expect others to like it?"

My 3 Favorite M’s Maniacal, Meticulous, Murderous

Evil In The Mirror
A murder mystery from Author Mitt Winstead

: A note to readers: Be advised this is a murder/mystery; there are strong elements of death, torture and carnage. If this is not your scene, do move on. But if like me you have a love for horror, then I would most certainly say this is right up your alley "with a side of Fava beans and a nice Chianti.”

Read with SNACKS! Review of "The Secrets Of The Ghosts-- The Sleeper."

     Good Evening Readers of the wee hours! And Thanks for joining me for the first installment of the 131 Preview Review.

     I had the great opportunity of sampling “Secrets of The Ghosts- The Sleeper” Book one of "The Secrets of the Ghosts Trilogy". Brought to us by Author Solease M. Barner.

     The first thing I will say is a word of caution, be ready for a world full of action, turmoil and internal struggle. And Food! Lot’s of food. It is our Heroine’s great relaxer, and if you read this woman’s menu on an empty stomach, you are sure to be starving and raiding the fridge by chapter five! I know I did!
