Fans of Janet Evanovich and Carl Hiaasen, get ready. If you haven't yet discovered wisecracking sleuth Stewart "Hoagy" Hoag and his faithful basset hound, Lulu, you're in for a sharp, hilarious treat. Once upon a time, Hoagy had it all: a hugely successful debut novel, a gorgeous celebrity wife, the glamorous world of New York City at his feet. These days, he scrapes by as a celebrity ghostwriter. A celebrity ghostwriter who finds himself investigating murders more often than he'd like. And, once upon a time, Richard Aintree was the most famous writer in America - high school students across the country read his one and only novel, a modern classic on par with The Catcher in the Rye. But after his wife's death, Richard went into mourning...and then into hiding. No one has heard from him in 20 years. Until now. Richard Aintree - or someone pretending to be Richard Aintree - has at last reached out to his two estranged daughters. Monette is a lifestyle queen à la Martha Stewart whose empire is crumbling; and, once upon a time, Reggie was the love of Hoagy's life. Both sisters have received mysterious typewritten letters from their father. Hoagy is already on the case, having been hired to ghostwrite a tell-all book about the troubled Aintree family. But no sooner does he set up shop in the pool house of Monette's Los Angeles mansion than murder strikes. With Lulu at his side - or more often cowering in his shadow - it's up to Hoagy to unravel the mystery, catch the killer, and pour himself that perfect single-malt Scotch...before it's too late. 1.

A sequel to a fifty-year-old book puts Hoagy on the scent of a long-cold murder case Few American novels are as beloved as Alma Glaze’s Revolutionary War epic, Oh, Shenandoah. Although Glaze died before she could write a sequel, she left behind an outline for one, along with instructions that it not be written until 50 years after her death. The deadline has passed, and the American public clamors for the long-promised Sweet Land of Liberty. Only one thing stands in its way: Glaze’s heirs. Her daughter, socialite Mavis Glaze, is writing the novel under guidance from her mother, who she claims has been appearing in her dreams. As Mavis’s writing spirals farther into madness, her brothers hire Stewart Hoag, a ghostwriter famous for dealing with troublesome celebrities. When he arrives at the family’s Virginia manor, he finds that Alma’s is not the only unsettled spirit. Blood was spilt for Oh, Shenandoah, and more will die before the sequel hits the best seller list. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.

Dr. Sue Ann Parrish, cherished by two men in her life only to lose both, has remained alone until she admits to loving Custer, the mountain dweller who befriended her in her sorrow and sees her through her greatest challenge, breast cancer. As she fights for her life, her daughter Betsy becomes a ghostwriter for her mother’s autobiography and thus learns the truth about her father. When ghosts from the past arrive and turn her world upside-down, Sue Ann must make a life-changing decision: stay with Custer or marry a man she thought lost to her years before. Dressed in an antique lace dress once worn by a pioneer woman, Sue Ann walks down the aisle, her eyes smiling at the two men waiting. Whose hand will she take? The Beartooth Mountains cast shadows of approval as a raven and an eagle dip their wings symbolically overhead. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kathleen Miranti.

With the burst of independent authors vying for a position in the world's self-publishing arena, everyone is trying to find their best genre and niche for the greatest success. If you find a lucrative genre and a niche that you can be competitive in, the sky is really the limit for earning royalties and becoming self-sufficient. This audiobook is written to show you how to find your voice in this genre and find a reader base that you can grow with as a writer. I have written over 130 books that have been published on Amazon, and that has made me instant cash through ghostwriting and daily royalties. Royalties are awesome because they allow your books to constantly generate passive income while you are living your life. I sold five books this morning alone, even before my lazy butt climbed out of bed. I am here to tell you that it can be done if you set your goals and always keep your reader in mind while you are writing. As a best-selling author, a ghostwriter, and a publisher, I have seen terrible erotic fiction come across my desk. Clients purchase this fiction from another ghostwriter, and it is so bad that they bring it to me and ask me to fix it. I can tell that the story was written probably while the writer was serving cold cereal to her infant in her kitchen instead of finding a time where she could be creative with the story and the characters. Don't do this to your readers. You won't maintain a readership and build an audience by giving them garbage. In this book I will explain a few things that make great erotic fiction. Then it is up to you to implement those changes with your own writing in order to start generating great stories for your audience. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Barry Eads.

In the next novel in David Handler’s Edgar award-winning series, Stewart “Hoagy” Hoag and his beloved basset hound, Lulu, investigate a murder in a fabled Connecticut summer playhouseHollywood ghostwriter Stewart “Hoagy” Hoag has chronicled the rise, fall, and triumphant return of many a celebrity. At last he’s enjoying his own, very welcome second act. After hitting a creative slump following the success of his debut novel, Hoagy has found inspiration again. Ensconced with his faithful but cowardly basset hound, Lulu, on a Connecticut farm belonging to his ex-wife, Oscar-winning actress Merilee Nash, he’s busy working on a new novel. He’s even holding out hope that he and Merilee might get together again. Life is simple and fulfilling - which of course means it’s time for complications to set in....When the police call to ask if he knows the whereabouts of a man named R.J. Romero, Hoagy learns of a dark secret from his ex-wife’s past. It’s already a stressful time for Merilee, who’s directing a gala benefit production of Private Lives to rescue the famed but dilapidated Sherbourne Playhouse, where the likes of Katherine Hepburn, Marlon Brando, and Merilee herself made their professional stage debuts. Her reputation, as well as the playhouse’s future, is at stake. The cast features three of Merilee’s equally famous Oscar-winning classmates from the Yale School of Drama. But it turns out that there’s more linking them to each other - and to their fellow Yale alum, R.J. - than their alma mater. When one of the cast is found murdered, it will take Hoagy’s sleuthing skills and Lulu’s infallible nose to sniff out the truth…before someone else faces the final curtain call. 1. Language: English.
