Latin Lessons Free On Amazon:

Latin Lessons, the latest young adult romantic thriller by Dora Benley, will be free on Amazon for the next five days. You can download it on your Kindle device or your computer just in time for the holidays. But hurry! The suspense thriller will not be available again this year which is now coming to a rapid end.

Vincentia had just returned from a summer at Bryn Mawr College where she was studying Latin to keep up with her boyfriend, Lyle, the class valedictorian. But when she lands herself at the train station the night she arrives home again Lyle isn’t there as promised to pick her up. He sends her messages on her cell phone about how she should mind the ablative case. It will do her in every time if she doesn’t watch it when she is translating Cicero. But at the same time he keeps telling her he is being mobbed by his father’s legal clients. They are massing on his office in downtown Tucson with complaints and dark looks. Lyle’s father is bogged down in court. Lyle cannot reach him. And somehow Vincentia can’t reach her boyfriend as the shadows deepen at the train station and everyone else leaves. She is left all alone waiting for Lyle. And when she finally sees his car and runs for it, it starts up. And it isn’t Lyle at all. It is some strange boy driving his car taking her somewhere other than home.

Edward Ware Thrillers Newsletter November 2017:

During the past month Cheops Books LLC published a number of young adult thrillers and romantic thrillers by Dora Benley. We have published Silver Wolf Moon, Dark 1, Dark 2, and Dark: A Trilogy. It has been mostly a month dominated by the Dark Series. But Silver Wolf Moon was also entered into the RITA contest in the young adult romantic category.

 

Cheops Books LLC has also posted the new cover for the Paris Peace Plot to be published next November 11, 2018 on the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War.

On December 15 Cheops Books LLC will publish part 1 of Captive at the Berghof in German, its first foreign language edition. You can find it on Amazon under Kindle. It is intended to be of interest mostly to amazon.de readers in Germany.

Adolf Hitler threatens Colonel Sir Edward Ware and Dora, Lady Ware, that if they do not hand over the Lawrence maps, key to world domination, he will kidnap their daughter. The late Lawrence of Arabia has drawn these maps for the British military to prepare for the next European War. Hitler guesses this, and wants to tip the scales in favor of Germany instead of England. Churchill, Edward’s best friend, and the Colonel are running their own foreign policy under the noses of first Baldwin and then Neville Chamberlain and the British government. Tension does nothing but build through Nazi rallies, through the Munich Accords in 1938, but does not stop with the first shots fired after the Polish Invasion in 1939. Finally the war itself will be won or lost depending upon what Edward and Dora do next. Will it be their country or their daughter? They must choose.

Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 is book three of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series.

Cheops Books LLC: 10 Years On Kindle:

Did you know that this autumn marks ten years of Kindle? I looked it up in my journals, and I bought the first Kindle the first month it was being sold in November of 2007. I hadn’t read any news stories about it. I just came across the device suddenly being marketed on Amazon. I knew that for years manufacturers had been coming up with various e devices, none of which caught on.

I said to myself when I read about Kindle, “This is it! It seems like it will work.” And this was before I read a single news story. And I was right, of course. The real key, of course, was that Amazon already had all these books to sell.

We here at Cheops Books LLC started to list titles on Kindle almost right away in 2008. It took us four years until the late spring of 2012 to get all our titles listed. We even did hardback collections of all the young adult novels. We also started to publish Edward Ware Thrillers at War on Kindle. Now all our titles are Kindle exclusives. You can’t buy them any other way except on our own website: http://www.edwardwarethrillers.org.

Ever since we have been continuing to list our titles on Kindle under two authors: Linda Cargill and Dora Benley. We have just published Silver Wolf Moon. On November 1 we will be publishing Dark 1 by Dora Benley.

Point Horror: The Surfer and Pool Party

As Halloween gets nearer and nearer, we think not only of Horror Week on Goodreads but of the old Scholastic Point Horror Line and its wonderfully scary books for teenagers and adults who like good, clean fun and big scares that make you scream. Cheops Books, LLC has republished several of these classic Point Horror titles by Linda Cargill such as The Surfer and Pool Party. Soon under her pen name, Dora Benley, we will be republishing Dark 1 and Dark 2, which were Point Horror titles in Great Britain.

Jessie had never seen her before. The beautiful girl who seemed to get a thrill out of surfing on a stormy sea. Maybe she’d been lucky in the past, but Jessie saw the girl’s luck run out. Jessie saw her drown.

So who’s the new girl in town? The one who doesn’t know who she is — or where she came from. The one who seems to cast a spell over everyone else she meets? Has the beautiful surfer come back from the dead? Or is it something else?

This young adult horror novel by Linda Cargill was originally published in the Scholastic USA Point Horror Line and the Scholastic UK Point Horror Line. It was also published by Cora Verlag in German as the Sea Witch. There was also an Italian edition. After selling 200,000 copies worldwide this bestselling novel is now available in a Kindle edition, published by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC.

Mary’s Gone On Promotion:

Mary’s Gone is on special promotion on Amazon Kindle starting today and continuing for the next five day into the weekend. Download your free copy of Dora Benley’s young adult thriller set on St. Simons Island today. But hurry! A promotion this good won’t occur again this year.

Chill Out On St. Simons Island. Creepy St. Simons Island is the setting with the live oaks with drooping moss and big roots that jut up out of the ground and look three hundred years old. Mosquitoes the size of your fist buzz near your leg and vampire-like drive you back into your car. Alligators with yellow eyes spy you from the nearest swamp, and this is the land of swamps. You won’t be able to find your way around the black water with reeds growing out of it any time soon.

Judy has the creeps. Nothing like this brutal stabbing and strangling has ever happened on St. Simons, a peaceful island off the coast of southeast Georgia. She’s seen such things only on TV. But here it is, staring straight back at her from her iPad!

There’s been an attack on a teenage girl her own age at Dunbar Creek, near Ebo Landing in the swamps. It’s a site often visited by ghost tours because of its ghoulish history. Legend has it that a girl from plantation days often appears with a lantern in hand searching for her lost love.

Whether there’s a ghost or not in Mary’s Gone, Judy has no idea. All she knows is that she’d better figure out what’s really going on. The voice that calls her on her cell phone, the one claiming to be the girl from long ago named Margaret the Wanderer, promises that Judy will be her very next victim.

Mary’s Gone is a young adult thriller published by Edward Ware Thrillers YA, an imprint of Cheops Books, LLC. Stories out of the past. It is one of several novels set on St Simons Island. If you enjoyed this book, you will also enjoy other young adult novels by Dora Benley including Rose Red, Latin Lessons, Dark 3: Special Edition, Murder on Spirit Island, and Back to Venice.

The Mystery: Point Of View in Cheops Books LLC:

A first person mystery such as “I dreamed I went back to Manderley” in Rebecca, yes, you can certainly have it. But most mysteries and almost all thrillers are third person limited nowadays. If your heroine is called Jan Friedman, everything in the story is what Jane knows and nothing can be admitted that she wouldn’t know. This is the “limited” part.

If you have just third person you have Charles Dickens and writers like that. And of course when it suited Dickens he would break into omniscient and tell you all about his characters, too. Moralize. Stuff like that which contemporary readers wouldn’t like.

All of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series and all the Edward Ware Thrillers YA novels are third person limited with a handful of first person stories thrown in for good measure. The Dark Series by Dora Benley coming out this autumn is all third person limited. So are Hitler’s Agent and Captive at the Berghof: Part 1 coming out on October 15 and on December 15 respectively. Try them out. You will see what we mean.
