Shameless Promotion of My Fellow Writers: Michael Infinito, Jr.

Just wanted to bring to your attention a newly released book by my good friend, Michael Infinito, Jr.  Mike is, in a word, awesome.  We have the same agent, and we were on submissions pretty much the entire time together and every time I wanted to crawl into bed, cry my head off and never come out again, Mike would send me an email that would make me laugh and sigh with relief that I wasn't alone.  Anyway, I had the privilege of reading his new book way, way back before he even had a contract with our agent for it, and I remember even then, before it was all revised, edited and polished up that I could not stop reading.  It was late, late, late at night and my husband woke up long enough to tell me, "You better go to bed or you won't be able to function tomorrow" and I said, "Sure, sure, just one more chapter."  Yeah, right.  Anyway, this is a fast, short, suspenseful, shocking read.

In fact, the very first chapter will make your toes curl.  I just love when that happens!

So here's the skinny:

The book is called 12:19


12:19…The time has been set…

Violet and Johnny Dotson pull up stakes and relocate to the beautiful countryside near Asheville, North Carolina in an attempt at starting their lives over after series of miscarriages. Unbeknownst to them they have actually been summoned there by a higher power.

Locked away in a mountaintop mental institution, J.C., a mysterious man who was the only survivor found at the scene of a brutal murder/suicide, will only utter five words… “I am the son of God.”

Strange events centered around the unknown patient spur Detective Tom Drayton to connect several bizarre deaths to the time of 12:19.

Armed with an old priest’s advice and a touch of new found faith, Tom follows a path that could very well lead him to the destruction of all mankind. But is he doing God’s bidding, or could he in fact be the dreaded serpent himself?

12:19…The clock is ticking….


So check it out!  You won't be sorry!

You can get it here.
