Hi all:

As you know on Friday I bring you new books and authors. J.P. McLean has already been my guest before and her series (initially a trilogy, but these things have a way of growing…) The Gift has featured with pride of place before. I knew that the next novel was nearly ready, and the author has been so kind as to send us her reflections about her writing and where she is now. And here, the floor is yours, J. P.:

Thank you, Olga for once again hosting me on your Friday guest author feature. It’s great to be back.

I’m at an interesting crossroads. Having recently released Penance, the fourth book in the contemporary fantasy series, The Gift Legacy, I’m now ready to start a new project. The decision is whether to take the road that leads to the next book in the series, or take the road not yet travelled, and write a brand new story instead.

On the familiar road, a small but devoted group of readers, who love The Gift Legacy, cheer me on (a writer’s dream!). I know the terrain and the characters and just how to tamper with their brakes to heighten the excitement.

There are no street lamps on the second road and no map. The characters taunt me with their thumbs out, but do I dare pick them up? Will we get along in the tight confines of the car?

What if there’s a curve so sharp we crash?

Hmm. Decisions, decisions. If you have thoughts on the matter, I’d love to hear them.

You can reach me through my blog, on Twitter (@jpmclean1) or on Facebook. And if you’d curious about The Gift Legacy, you can read excerpts and learn more about it on my website.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks so much J.P.!

And here, I had to tell  you a bit more about Penance

The Gift Legacy Book 4. Penance by J.P. McLean

The Gift Legacy Book 4. Penance by J.P. McLean

When Emelynn Taylor chooses a man’s life over a secret, she draws the attention of the wrong people. International Covert Operations wields the secret like a weapon to coerce the Tribunal Novem’s cooperation. And all ICO wants in exchange for protecting the secret is Emelynn’s services.

With a new job, a new handler and no choice, Emelynn goes undercover to unravel a dangerous drug ring. She soon finds herself in a deadly game of cat and mouse in which she breaks all the rules: the same rules that got her into trouble in the first place.

Here the links in Amazon, although you can check J.P.’s website for more links and information:

Hi all:

As usual on Fridays I bring you a guest (and recently also new books). A few weeks ago I shared a new book by one of the writers I know from one of the groups of writers in Spanish who had had her book translated (Blanca Miosi). Today I have another guest from the same group, Jordi Díez (this time from Terrassa, Catalonia), who’s had his bestseller  ‘El Péndulo de Dios’ translated to English, ‘The God Code’. If you’ve enjoyed ‘The Da Vinci Code’ I would have a look at this novel.

The God Code by Jordi Díez

The God Code

Cècil Abidal, an experienced and well-known auditor for a non-profit organization, is asked to organize an auction for an antiquities’ lot of dubious origins found among the ruins of an old chapel. The artifacts’ value is not high but he´s assured the proceeds will fund humanitarian causes. He accepts the job even at the risk of his own reputation. However, what at first appears to be an ordinary sale of illegal antiquities, suddenly turns complicated when, at the last minute, an ancient codex is added to the inventory and a mysterious bidder pays a million euros for it. After the sale, and just as the codex´s falsehood is revealed, one of the auction’s “go-betweens” is murdered in unusual circumstances. In order to remain alive, Cècil needs to find the original codex. His desperate search takes him to Azul Benjelali, an old love and also an expert in ancient languages who disappears just as she is about to discover the location of a more than a thousand-years old relic that has been lost for centuries. Finally, with Mars´s (a mysterious and beautiful woman) help, Cècil races against time and is taken from one clue to the next while tracking the historical events that connect the Romans with the Templars, the Almogavars, Napoleon’s troops and the Nazis. This is a puzzle he desperately needs to solve before the secret falls into the hands of those who have been after it for centuries.
