September Writers 4 Writers AND Announcing the Murder, Madness & Love Ebook Giveaway Winner!

It's time for another edition of Writers 4 Writers where we help spread the word about fantastic authors and their published works.  Please make sure you take a moment to thank our hosts Stephen Tremp, M. Pax, Christine Rains, and C.M. Brown!  This month we're featuring Helen Ginger and Cherie Reich!

First up is Helen Ginger, author of Angel Sometimes.
Just before her thirteenth birthday, Angel Sometimes' aunt took her 800 miles from her home in Oklahoma, gave her $50 and left Angel on South Padre Island, Texas. Four years later, Angel hitchhiked to Austin and got a job swimming as a mermaid in a bar in the music district. At twenty-two, she has friends and a place to live. When a homeless girl is beaten and a waitress killed, Angel realizes she will never be whole until she confronts her parents. To do that, she needs three things: her high school diploma, a car and a gun. She has a car. She's finished her final test for her GED. The only thing she needs is the gun and she knows where to get one.

You can tweet or facebook-post about it today by using any of the pre-written tweets or posts from Helen posted right here.

Helen Ginger was born in Georgia, but at age ten, her mother moved the family to Texas. Helen's been there ever since, laying down roots and picking up stories. As far back as Helen can remember, she's always written: angst-filled stories in high school; short stories and poetry in college; mysteries, mainstream fiction, even technical books, three of which have been published by TSTC Publishing. Her free ezine, Doing It Write, which goes out to subscribers around the globe, is now in its thirteenth year of publication. She's also an Owner/ Partner and WebMistress for Legends In Our Own Minds®. Helen lives in a small town just outside of Austin, Texas. From her office window, she sees birds, deer, squirrels, road runners, foxes, cats, and rabbits.
'Course, what she gets asked about most often are her three years as a mermaid at Aquarena Springs. Swimming with a shimmery tail, picnicking underwater, performing synchronized ballet, blowing air bubbles ... all year round, even in the winter.

And next up is Cherie Reich, author of The Nightmare Collection and other tales!

 A legend is hungry tonight.

A child monster gets its first taste of blood in Nightmare at the Freak Show. Four friend enter the forest one December night, but can they survive each other and the monster that hunts them in Once Upon a December Nightmare? Almost ten years later, the monster awakens to feed again in Nightmare Ever After.
