Dark Series Kick Off September 15:

Starting this Friday, September 15 we have the fall kick off for the Dark Series at Cheops Books, LLC at http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org. Dark 3: Special Edition will be published. Right after it is published we will hold a special promotion or kick off on amazon.com. For five days you will be able to download the new young adult thriller title for free. As a special extra, this edition will be illustrated with Andrew the artist’s ideas of the major characters.

On November 1 Dark 1 will be published followed by Dark 2 on November 8 and finally by Dark: A Trilogy on November 15.

Bianca mourns for her old friend Doc who helped her overcome her fear of the dark after being the only witness to a brutal murder on St. Simons Island. He was driven out of town two years ago when the locals concluded that he must be the killer. She last saw him parachuting from a plane escaping from the law, a fall he couldn’t have survived. She’s moved to California with her employers, the Shipleys, and taken on a permanent babysitting position with Little Katie. Suddenly there’s a kidnapping attempt on the rich little heiress that Bianca is employed to protect. To the rescue comes a tall, dark young man who reminds her of somebody she’s lost. But it just couldn’t be . . . After all, he’s dead. And after all . . . he’s supposed to be the bad guy.

Dark 2 by Dora Benley

In Dark 2 Bianca Winters thinks she has lost the love of her life, Doc Ernie McCollough. He used to be her medical advisor when she was recovering from the shock of witnessing a murder. Now she must try to cope all by herself while serving as the live in nanny/permanent babysitter for St. Simons Island little heiress, Little Katie Shipley.
Suddenly there is a new man in town, Byron Kingsley, fresh from England. He begins to serve as her new medical advisor while she tries to recover her memory after the shock of the killing two years before while she was babysitting her charge. And he shows up just in time as the Island’s infamous criminal, Mike Fellini, tries to kidnap Little Katie and hold her for ransom.

But just as Bianca, Byron, Little Katie, and entourage are ready to flee to safety in England, a controversy breaks wide open about Byron Kingsley. Mysteries are associated with her new love as they lead to the horrendous, spine tingling conclusion to Dora Benley’s new young adult thriller.

A brand new edition of the Scholastic Point Horror young adult thriller novel is about to be published on November 7. Soon you will be able to preorder the novel with a brand new cover drawn by Andrew the artist.

New Book Cover For Dark 3: Special Edition:

The new book cover for Dark 3: Special Edition will be unveiled on September 15, the publication date for the young adult thriller novel by Dora Benley on Amazon Kindle. But you liked the old Dark 3 cover with the image of the screaming girl? We are incorporating a new background and keeping the same screaming girl image in the foreground. Instead of a graveyard with mountains and bats in the background, look for a scene from the Dark 3 story. If you study the new cover closely you will find the Pacific Northwest Coastline. Look for sea lions, in fact a whole colony of them just as in the novel where Bianca confronts Harry Fellini who is trying to kidnap her and Little Katie. You might also be able to distinguish small human being climbing about the mountainside and perhaps at the top of the cliff a parked Mercedes, Doc’s vehicle for transporting Bianca and Little Katie to Vancouver. Right now the cover artist, Andrew, is putting the finishing touches on the new book cover for Dark 3: Special Edition. Look forward to a treat.

On October 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish Hitler’s Agent, volume six in the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

The villainess, Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chief spy, struts boldly from page to page of this thriller with Europe at her back and all sorts of ambitious notions in her head during the lead up to WW2. As far as she is concerned it isn’t Hitler’s Reich. It is Helga’s Reich. She will wrap the hero, Colonel Sir Edward Ware, Churchill’s spy, around her little finger to prove it. Nor does it matter what Edward’s American wife, Dora, says.

On November 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish Dark: A Trilogy, a collection of three young adult thriller novels in the Dark Series: Dark 1, Dark 2, and Dark 3: Special Edition. Teenager Bianca Winters had no idea what was in store for her in the next few years when she took on a babysitting assignment across the street with Little Katie Shipley. That night her whole life was to change forever as a killer roamed around in the dark upstairs. She had to save the baby while the housekeeper, Mrs. Ingersoll, fell to her death.

In the months that followed the murder, Bianca comes under the wing of her new medical advisor, Doc, who helps her recover from the horrible experience. She falls in love with the young man only to have doubt cast on his motives by circumstances that hint that he himself is the killer. When he goes on the run, she has to still believe in him somehow. How could she love a murderer?

Katie Shipley’s parents move to California and take Bianca with them as her live in babysitter. Bianca thinks that Doc is dead, killed trying to escape from the authorities. But then just as a strange gentleman from England appears and tries to kidnap Little Katie, a young man who reminds her of the one she has lost materializes in her life again. He shows her what has really been going on all these years behind the scenes, why Mrs. Ingersoll was killed, and what the bad guys want with Little Katie. The trilogy ends with the biggest surprise ending of all time.
And finally on December 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish Captive at the Berghof part 1 in German translation, the first such work in a foreign language. This is the third volume of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series. Hitler has found out about Colonel Sir Edward Ware’s secret undercover activities for Winston Churchill, and he’s playing hardball. He kidnaps Thomasina, Edward’s daughter, and won’t give the child back unless Edward and his wife, Dora, hand over the key to world domination – the Lawrence maps. They’d better do something fast before Thomasina truly becomes Hitler’s daughter.

On September 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish Dark 3: Special Edition, the concluding volume of the Dark Series started by Scholastic UK. It is a fitting ending to Dark 1 and Dark 2 and lets you know what finally happened to all those YA characters such as Bianca Winters and Doc and their doomed love affair. Does she finally marry Harry Fellini or what? Does Little Katie, the heiress of St Simons Island finally escape to some place where she doesn’t get kidnapped? What about her wealthy parents, the Shipleys? And what happens to the low life of St. Simons Island such as Marianna Haynes, who was always after Bianca, or even Harry Fellini’s jailbird brother, Mike Fellini?

And when all these loose plot ends finally get decided for good, what about the long promised trilogy: Dark: A Trilogy? Why not publish the Dark as a series? Dark: A Trilogy will be published on December 15. We here at Cheops Books LLC even have a brand new cover in mind. We don’t have the final drawing yet. But we have a rough sketch which we will share with you today along with this blog post. We are about ready to hand it over to Andrew the artist to put his finishing touches on it.

Cheops Books Goes To The ALA And Frankfurt:

This summer has been an unprecedented season of marketing here at Cheops Books LLC. We have had our books all over the place. Last month Hitler’s Agent, soon to be published on October 15, went to the American Library Association Convention in Chicago. It was displayed at the IBPA Cooperative Booth. Just this past week in July Cheops Books LLC sent an eblast to K-12 librarians to announce the publication of Dark 3: Special Edition to be published on September 15. Next month Cheops Books is to be part of a cooperative catalog to be sent out to independent bookstores advertising Dark 3: Special Edition.

In October we will be sending booth Hitler’s Agent and Dark 3: Special Edition to the Frankfurt Book Fair in Germany. The titles to be published this autumn will be at the IBPA booth.

In addition we have just had an audio book recorded for Salisbury Plot. We used an exciting new voice never to be repeated again but special only for this one Edward Ware Thrillers at War novel. This edition will soon appear on audible.

For Dark 3: Special Edition we have been working with an artist in Ukraine named Andrew. He has illustrated the book for us with his black and white sketches and drawings of the characters.

Work also continues on the German translation of Captive at the Berghof: Part 1.

Stories out of the past.
