Dystopian Thriller Gene Cards

Congrats to my friend Elena Giorgi on the release of her new thriller Gene Cards!


 To celebrate the release you can purchase Gene Cards on Amazon for 99¢ for a limited time. Quick! October 21st is your last day!

Gene Cards is a dystopian, near-future thriller set in the fictional city of Liasis: When the cure for some means death for others, how far will you go to save your own?


Yulia Szymanski is a murderer and one of the best hackers of the century. Her mission: break her brother out of a high security jail before he dies of a rare genetic condition. On her trail is Biothreat Agent Skyler Donohue, a decorated Muay Thai fighter with a strange fascination for corpses. The obstacle to overcome: an invisible, deadly disease that strikes at random and has the city of Liasis locked in a bioterrorism siege.

When the latest to fall ill is Skyler's best friend's daughter, Skyler wants to drop the Szymanski case to chase the baffling pathogen that nobody is able to isolate. What she doesn't know is that finding Yulia is the only way to stop the epidemic and save the child's life.

In a world where identities are based on gene cards, and privacy no longer exists, survival is only granted to the rich, the healthy, and those who've learned to become invisible to the system.

 ***
You can't ask for more in a thriller about genetics than one written by a DNA scientist like Elena. I beta read this story and I have to say, the way it was woven together, it kept me guessing who the real bad guy was in an imperfect world. To tell you who I ultimately routed for would spoil the story. Action packed, yes, but the whole genetics thing really makes one wonder what is possible, it makes for some scary realistic sci-fi.

You can find Elena and her other great stories over at her blog CHIMERAS

Waiting for Harvey

Alone, in a cabin in the woods, with a ghost. Who could ask for more in a ghost story? Harvey starts right out with a hint of foreboding in a conversation between brothers John and Erik. Already my curiosity is roused as to what happened...

I randomly downloaded this on my iPad when I hit the wrong button being a bumble fingers, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never read fanfic before. It was pretty good. But like many other people, it still can't compare to J. K. Row...
