Manipulated Lives Book Blast and Giveaway

Do you like to read psychological fiction books? Here's the latest from author H.A. Leuschel along with a giveaway for a signed paperback. Open worldwide, you have through 8/20 to enter. Good luck.

Manipulated Lives
by H.A. Leuschel
Genre: Psychological Fiction

Realistic, heart-breaking and utterly gripping!’ - Bookneeders


'A brilliant and important book ... I could barely put it down'- Nerdish Mum Book Blog

You NEED to read this. Your family needs to read this, your friends need to read this, your children … NEED to read this’ - JenacideByBibliophile



Five fictional, compelling true-to-life stories about how people can be manipulated by others.


Manipulators are everywhere. At first these devious and calculating people can be hard to spot, because that is their way. They are often masters of disguise: witty, disarming, even charming in public – tricks to snare their prey – but then they revert to their true self of being controlling and angry in private. Their main aim: to dominate and use others to satisfy their needs, with a complete lack of compassion and empathy for their victim.

In this collection of short novellas, you meet people like you and me, intent on living happy lives, yet each of them, in one way or another, is caught up and damaged by a manipulative individual.

First you meet Tess, whose past is haunted by a wrong decision, then young, successful and well balanced Sophie, who is drawn into the life of a little boy and his troubled father. Next, there is teenage Holly, who is intent on making a better life for herself, followed by a manipulator himself, trying to make sense of his irreversible incarceration. Lastly, there is Lisa, who has to face a parent’s biggest regret. All stories highlight to what extent abusive manipulation can distort lives and threaten our very feeling of self-worth.

Blazing HEEET Hot Cinnamon Vodka from MerryGo Spirits Review

I shared this on Instagram last week but wanted to say a little more about it...
As you've probably guessed from some of my prior posts, I like spicy foods, really spicy stuff, like the Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper tortilla chips. I recently ran across a vodka from MerryGo Spirits that was labeled as hot cinnamon flavored and I couldn't resist giving it a try.

MIT Press Pitchfest Competition

Here's a bit of a different competition. Being an author myself, I found it interesting... If you've ever thought about writing a non-fiction book in the science and technology field... MIT Press is holding their first-ever Pitchfest competition at the next Boston Book Festival in October 2018. Six finalists will be selected to present their projects before a panel of judges. The winner will be given the opportunity to work with an MIT Press editor to develop a full-fledged proposal, plus a $1000 cash prize.
