My name is Chris Tusa, and I'm a writer from New Orleans. My debut novel, Dirty Little Angels, is now available for pre-order from Amazon.com, and I am writing because I was hoping you might be willing to read it and post your thoughts on Shelfari (or on Amazon.com, or on some of the other book-related sites). If you're interested, I'd be more than willing to send you an e-book version by e-mail. Just let me know. I've included a summary of the novel below:
Dirty Little Angels
Set in the slums of New Orleans, among clusters of crack houses and abandoned buildings, Dirty Little Angels is the story of sixteen year old Hailey Trosclair. When the Trosclair family suffers a string of financial hardships and a miscarriage, Hailey finds herself looking to God to save her family. When her prayers go unanswered, Hailey puts her faith in Moses Watkins, a failed preacher and ex-con. Fascinated by Moses's lopsided view of religion, Hailey, and her brother Cyrus, begin spending time down at an abandoned bank that Moses plans to convert into a drive-through church. Gradually, though, Moses's twisted religious beliefs become increasingly more violent, and Hailey and Cyrus soon find themselves trapped in a world of danger and fear from which there may be no escape.

I'm glad I gave you a little nudge. Welcome aboard ITW. Sorry I won't get to meet you personally at Thrillerfest this year. Can't manage to make it across the pond this time. And New York's my favorite city! If you haven't read it yet, check out my wife Jean's article about our visit last July: IMPRESSIONS OF THRILLERFEST:
Dear Janice: Good luck with VENGEANCE. I am also a member of ITW. Mt debut HUNTING THE KING was published in April and I've been promoting ever since. Spamming you is just part of my promotional arsenal. I also sing and dance at book stores. Have a great holiday season, and best of luck in 2009. Peter
Impressive resume'! But it was the "Freezer Burn" book by D.H. Dublin that got me. I love clever titles, that one especially reminds me of my mother who used to raise her own beef and still sticks every possible food group (along with the meat!) into the freezer with Freezer Burn the inevitable results! Ridiculous, I know, but then I'm weird.
