THE ADVOCATE’S KILLER is released today. It is book number eleven in The Advocate Series. This book was written in the shortest length of time so far. However, it had less to do with an increase in my writing speed, than it had to do with the Covid-19 pandemic. Stuck at home in isolation gave me a lot of writing time.
I have to tell you though, I’m starting to get cabin fever. I miss my walks at the bay and the beach. I miss seeing my family. I miss going to the movies. Heck, I even miss going to the store, and I hate to shop.
I sit here feeling sorry for my self, and then I think about how lucky I really am. My heart goes out to all those families who have lost loved ones. They will forever feel the loss. For the rest of us, this won’t last forever, and if we are all kind and thoughtful of others, we can get through this together.
Stay safe and Covid-19 Free.
MASON’S MISSING is the first book in my newest series. Up until now, I have only written novels in The Advocate Series. In book #6, The Advocate’s Felony, I had a character named Tuper that became a fan favorite. When The Advocate’s Felony was released, I had request after request for more Tuper. Since Tuper didn’t fit in San Diego in JP and Sabre’s world, I started his own series. Tuper is an old cowboy who lives near Helena, Montana. He likes three things, women, guns, and gambling. In the new series, Tuper meets up with an unlikely sidekick, a young computer hacker. The dialog between these two was really fun to write.MASON’S MISSING is available for Pre-Order now and will release on Tuesday, October 3, 2017. Please join me for the Facebook Launch on Teresa Burrell Fan Page from 4:00 to 7:00 PDT. I will also be making a personal appearance to launch the paperback version on Saturday, October 7, at 10:30 a.m. at The Ontario Convention Center, 2000 Convention Center Way, Ontario, California. Come by and say hello if you can. In honor of the release of MASON’S MISSING, The Advocate’s Felony will be FREE on Kindle from 10/2 through 10/6. Download a copy if you haven’t already, and please tell your friends.Keep on reading…
The Advocate, the first book in my Advocate Series, just received a facelift. I just had someone design a new cover and I must tell you it is receiving a huge number of hits on Kindle since the change. The paperback will be released soon with the new cover on Amazon as well.
The Advocate’s Betrayal and The Advocate’s Conviction are also receiving new covers which will be updated real soon.
Please let me know what you think of the new look.
I recently saw a documentary on the plight of Albinos in Tanzania. As you may know my heart is touched whenever I see children suffering. The situation here in Africa effects both adults and children but many of these children never reach adulthood because they are often murdered before they become adults.
|Neglected Child in Public School
The Albinos in Tanzania are hunted for their body parts and their blood. There have been many, many slaughterings and dismemberment of Albino children. A news article reported recently on how young albino girls have been raped as a result of a mistaken belief that it can cure aids.
How can we help? There’s a non-profit organization called Under the Same Sun that has been working diligently to help People with Albinism (PWAs). They accept contributions. Also these children are in dire need of having their eyes protected from the sun. So starting December 1, 2011, I will donate a pair of sunglasses for every one of my books that is sold online (either paperback or e-book form) to these children in Tanzania. I have three mystery novels, The Advocate, The Advocate’s Betrayal, and The Advocate’s Conviction. (The main character is an advocate for abused children.) Any of these books will qualify and they are available in paperback on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and about any e-book form you want. If you purchase a book I will use my royalties to send the sunglasses to help protect their sensitive eyes. Together we can pay forward and help these unfortunate children.
