In this workshop, Bernadette Pajer will share her hard-earned “aha” moment that led her to coin the term “Triggers” and will show how you can use this powerful tool to engage your readers and create a loyal readership.
This thriller’s premise of international corporations controlling the food supply and sacrificing human health for the sake of profits is so plausible that it is horrifying. Readers will find themselves rapidly turning the pages to see what happens next in this disturbing “OMG this could really happen” novel. A strong debut novel by Lawrence Verigin that adeptly tackles the pertinent and socially relevant topic of GMO’s with tight writing and fast-paced action.
What would it be like to discover two connected galaxies that The Big Bang theory says are impossible? Not many people have even imagined facing this question, but in "The Falling Sky" Pippa Goldschmidt takes readers into the mind of an astronomer whose research presents these findings. This conundrum creates a human drama as fraught with turmoil and heartache as any found in the best novels of any genre.
"Fatal Induction" is a captivating, classic mystery featuring Professor Bradshaw that takes place in the time of Tesla and Edison in the burgeoning city of Seattle. Pajer's vivid writing takes readers to this exciting time that is in the crossroads of scientific investigation and innovation, when automobiles and horse drawn carts compete for the same streets, and the United States reels with political unrest and social upheaval. Readers will warm to the curmudgeonly and reserved professor who has a heart of gold and a penchant for investigation.
Cars, trucks, and planes grind to a halt as an oil-eating bacteria (similar to the one used to clean up the Exxon Valdez disaster) consumes fuel, while free hydrogen gas causes explosions and fires around the city of L.A. Amy Rogers, M.D. Ph.D. grounds her science-based thriller in fact until the last possible second when she expertly blends "what if" with "what is" making "Petroplague" a page-turning thriller.
An intimate glimpse into the lives of scientific researchers, Jennifer Rohn's beautiful and touching story "The Honest Look" is an eye opening experience. Love triangles, unexpected findings, and ostracism all add up to potentially change the way readers understand the scientific method and what scientists must do in their pursuit of ground breaking research.
