Presidential Primary Heats Up Primary Crime

Every four years, big-state politicians mumble and grumble about powerful little New Hampshire as the first Presidential primary in the nation. Primary Crime by Steve Sherman has a different take. In New Hampshire, Presidential wannabees have to get out and about with real people hand to hand and face to face. New Hampshire voters donít ask until they see the whites of their eyes. Then they keep on asking. Thatís the difference between TV politicking in California et. al. and village NH. Primary Crime, set in New Hampshire and part of the Hugh Quint mystery novel series, tells it all with a smile.

This Desired Place Added to List of Best Beach Reads

The national daily radio program Marketplace, produced by American Public Media, recently added Julia Olderís award-winning historical novel This Desired Place; The Isles of Shoals to its online list of "Best Business Beach Books." Joining the ranks of books about corporate dealings and CEO shenanigans, This Desired Place; The Isles of Shoals tells many tales in its sweeping drama of pirates and Puritans. One of the rarely told stories is about how raw, free enterprise was seeded in this country at the lawless 17th century Isles of Shoals off Maine and New Hampshire. This Desired Place received the gold medal award for Best Northeast Regional Fiction (New England and New York) from the 2007 Independent Publisher Book Awards.
