Children of the Fog

Cheryl Kaye Tardif

You have 10 seconds to make a decision: Let a kidnapper take your child, or watch your child die. CHOOSE!
PUBLISHED: ebook & trade paperback

Sadie O'Connell is a bestselling author and a proud mother. But her life is about to spiral out of control.

After her six-year-old son Sam is kidnapped by a serial abductor, she nearly goes insane. But it isn't just the fear and grief that is ripping her apart. It's the guilt.

Sadie is the only person who knows what the kidnapper looks like. And she can't tell a soul. For if she does, her son will be sent back to her in "little bloody pieces".

When Sadie's unfaithful husband stumbles across her drawing of the kidnapper, he sets into play a series of horrific events that sends her hurtling over the edge.

Sadie's descent into alcoholism leads to strange apparitions and a face-to-face encounter with the monster who abducted her son--a man known only as...The Fog.

Lancelot's Lady

Cheryl Kaye Tardif (writing as....

*PUBLISHED* - Available in ebook and trade paperback editions

When palliative care nurse Rhianna McLeod is given a gift of a dream holiday to the Bahamas from her dying patient, billionaire JT Lance, Rhianna has no idea that her 'holiday' will include being stranded on a private island with Jonathan, an irritating but irresistibly handsome recluse. Or that she'll fall head over heels for the man.

Jonathan isn't happy to discover a drop-dead gorgeous redhead has invaded his island. But his anger soon turns to attraction. After one failed marriage, he has guarded his heart, but Rhianna's sudden appearance makes him yearn to throw caution to the wind.

To live fully in the present, Rhianna must resolve her own murky past, unravel the secret that haunts JT, foil the plans of a sleazy, blackmailing private investigator and help Jonathan find his muse. Only then can Rhianna find the love she's been searching for, and finally become...Lancelot's Lady.

LANCELOT'S LADY ~ available in ebook and trade paperback editions from Amazon.com

There is something very appealing with this first chapter, but I can't get past the overuse of "telling". Show us what's happening. This can be done with more detailed description showing us how they feel or how they express their feelings or how they look even. And with more active dialogue or pass... view book

This story has a lot of potential, which is why I'm going to offer some advice. It started off good, with action, dialogue and intrigue. After the first scene, though, you slipped into too much tell and not enough show. This makes a reader want to scroll down for a break of whitespace. Try adding... view book
