This weekend stop by Let's Steep at Peddler's Village in Lahaska, PA to meet authors K. Edwin Fritz and Mary Ellen Springsteen on Saturday and James Hockenberry on Sunday. Here's a taste of what you're in store for:
Excerpt from "Man Hunt" by K. Edwin Frtiz
"I am sorry for my crime, woman. I beg for your forgiveness. I - "
The rope was yanked higher, and he screamed. "Do not ask for my forgiveness, pig," the woman crooned in her chandelier voice. "I was not your victim." She tugged the rope again, and something in the man's shoulder popped as his body twisted like a corpse on a gallows.
Excerpt from "Cyber Match" by Mary Ellen Springsteen
Sammy Jo Turner wanted to swallow ... or scream for help, but the sock covered by duct tape prevented her from doing either. Wrists and ankles padlocked to a chair, pain trickled through her body with every move. Squirming in her seat merely enhanced her fatigue. The shackles would not budge.
Excerpt from "Over Here" by James Hockenberry
The big man in the black hat and coat stood alone and watched the Kirk Oswald sail out of New York Harbor. His mouth turned up in his corrupted version of a smile. He was confident the Kirk Oswald, loaded with food supplies, would never reach its destination in Archangel, Russia. He knew what no one on board the ship knew - his agents had buried powerful incendiary bombs inside four sugar bags. They were timed to explode when the Kirk Oswald neared Archangel.
