Each author will be giving away a free copy of his or her book to one lucky person who comments at a blog during his or her tour, so pick your favorites, follow their tours, and make sure you leave them a note to tell them you stopped by!

Andrew Feder, author of the mystery adventure novel, The Heretic, will be stopping off at The Dark Phantom! “The Heretic” is both a thrilling mystery adventure and a powerful cultural commentary, because though Feder’s fictional war hero Aias’ religious and sexual practices would be typical today, in ancient Greece, where polytheism and homosexuality were the prominent cultural mores, he was considered an outright heretic. This thought-provoking novel whisks readers back in time with an intriguing story of war and romance, but it actually begins set in a futuristic America.

Jean Hackensmith, author of the romantic thriller, Checkmate, will be stopping off at The Book Connection! A victim of spousal abuse, Caryn’s ex-husband bound her children hand and foot, locked them in the bathroom, and set the house on fire.

Please give me one solid reason not to convert.” This desperate cry for help from a visitor to an interfaith website inspired Joel Richardson and Susan Crimp to find that reason, but instead of one, they found many, put forward by former Muslims who dared to speak out about the oppressive religion that held them in thrall.
