David Daniel – Noted for his Alex Rasmussen series, Dave has established himself as a mystery pro. He’s also got excellent standalone novels, such as Reunion, and story collections, as Coffin Dust.

T.Stephens – A new writer with his debut novel Dante’s Cypher.

Chris PhilbrookAuthor of Adrian’s Undead Diary and many other books.

Debbi Mack – Debbi’s got a series starring the character of Maryland attorney Stephanie Ann “Sam” McRae, a hard-boiled, tough-gal lawyer who helps the downtrodden, and “Least Wanted” is a slam-bang action ride. In the classic vein, the book opens with the arrival of a troubled (and troubling) client. Sam starts off on a simple matter, and soon becomes entangled with a batch of baddies, bodies, bruises, and blood.

Katherine Tomlinson – Former Editor of Dark Valentine, she’s also a talented and prolific writer in her own right. Hers was my first ebook purchase, and I was pleased to discover that along with publishing the kind of story I like, she also writes the kind of story I like. The collection “Just Another Day in Paradise” is superb, well worth the purchase price and the time spent devouring all the stories. This will be a hit with fans of Stephen King, tales in a similar vein, but given a personal stamp by the author. So when you’re in the mood for a shiver of frisson, or “exploring the dark heart of urban living,” pick up this collection and settle in for some chills.

Leigh Perry/Toni Kelner – Toni is another fun mystery writer, with the Where Are They Now series, as well as the Laura Fleming series. She also puts together fun anthologies, like Wolfsbane and Mistletoe and Many Bloody Returns.

Ray Daniel – Ray launched his debut novel, Terminated. Read my interview here.

Thomas Pluck  – Tom is a tough guy with a heart of gold, and his Blade of Dishonor is a wild ride, with ninjas, guns, and martial arts. Read my interview here.
