Hot Topics

I have been trying to think of different ways to diversify the blog and something popped into my head this morning. We should have a Hot Topics section. I would love to hear what sort of topics that you want to talk about and/or hear about. I think that it is possible for us adults to talk about something without name calling and being hurtful towards someone if they don’t agree with your side of the topic.

So if you have a Hot Topic that you want to talk about, can be about anything (And I mean anything), either comment below or email me at mommieventures@gmail.com and put ‘Hot Topic’ in the subject line!

I will also be making a post with rules and will continue to add them as I think of them or if something happens and it needs to addressed.
Don’t be afraid to speak your mind and say your opinion! We do live in America…..Freedom of Speech!!!!!!!!!!!

Midnight Caller

First-time suspense writer Leslie Tentler’s new Midnight Caller (Chasing Evil Trilogy) is being compared to the #1 NY Times bookselling author Lisa Jackson – it’s that much of a thriller, and with the romantic storyline, it’s a must-read among women who like mysteries, a good thrill when they read plus that love story woven in! A quick synopsis follows:
 
MIDNIGHT CALLER centers on the chilling obsession of a sadistic killer, the handsome federal agent with a secret past who’s after him – and in the middle, a late-night radio psychologist whose mother’s long-ago murder still haunts her and makes her the killer’s ultimate target. The story is based in New Orleans.

PRESS RELEASE
 
Leslie Tentler Authors New Series
of Romantic Thrillers for MIRA Books
 
MIDNIGHT CALLER, first book in the Chasing Evil trilogy, to be released February 1
 
 
ATLANTA, January 5, 2011 – Growing up, Leslie Tentler had a big imagination and a gift for writing. As an adult, the Gwinnett County resident now has a three-book deal with MIRA Books. MIDNIGHT CALLER, her debut mass-market romantic suspense novel, will be available February 1, 2011, through online booksellers and bookstores everywhere.
 
MIDNIGHT CALLER is the first in a series of romantic thrillers penned by Tentler and based around a fictional unit of the FBI. Two additional books in the Chasing Evil trilogy will be released in 2011 and 2012, respectively. 
 
Prior to signing with MIRA, Tentler worked as a writer and editor in public relations in metro Atlanta for nearly two decades, specializing in high technology and non-profit healthcare clients. Her first fiction manuscript won multiple Romance Writers of America chapter contests, including Georgia Romance Writers’ prestigious Maggie Award of Excellence.
 
MIDNIGHT CALLER centers on the chilling obsession of a sadistic killer, the handsome federal agent with a secret past who’s after him – and in the middle, a late-night radio psychologist whose mother’s long-ago murder still haunts her and makes her the killer’s ultimate target. The story is based in New Orleans.
 
 
In its review of MIDNIGHT CALLER, Publisher’s Weekly said, “A smooth prose style and an authentic Big Easy vibe distinguish Tentler’s debut.”
 
“I’m thrilled to be writing for MIRA Books,” said Tentler from her Lawrenceville home. “It’s the opportunity of a lifetime to be a debut novelist and to be able to immerse myself in the creative aspect of storytelling. At the heart of any good romantic suspense are characters you care about and fast-paced plots imbued with a very real element of danger and passion. I hope readers will go along for the ride with me and come to love these characters as much as I do.”
 
Tentler is agented by Stephany Evans, president of FinePrint Literary Management in New York. “Though this is her debut novel, it’s no surprise that Leslie has been the winner of whole handfuls of Romance Writers of America chapter contests,” said Evans. “Her gripping story and utterly believable and compelling characters grab you from the first chapter. Leslie Tentler will undoubtedly become a ‘must read’ author for any fan of romantic suspense.”
 
Tentler is a member of Romance Writers of America, International Thriller Writers and Mystery Writers of America.
