Devil Wind by Deborah Shlian & Linda Reid: Keep fear alive

Anyone who went to or watched today’s Washington, DC Rally for Sanity and/or Fear appreciates what Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are trying to say: when you inject fear into a society, all rationality disappears. Actor Sam Waterston read a poem by Stephen Colbert (I’ll try to get a copy) that essentially listed every possible imagined fear in one’s life: from dirt in the food you eat, to potential muggers, to terrorists, to STDs, to bears (Stephen’s worst fear) and on and on… The point is, it’s time to bring “reasonableness” back into public dialogue- especially after an election “season” that hit new lows in terms of negativity.

This is 2010, but ironically, Devil Wind by Deborah Shlian and Linda Reid, which takes place just before Y2K (2000), addresses this very issue. Read what happens when a rogue CIA operative tries to inject fear into the upcoming presidential election in an effort to influence the outcome.

Devil Wind will be out in hardback, eBook and audio in April, 2011. Check out my website for the countdown. As the time gets closer, you’ll be able to pre-order at a discount from Amazon. Bestselling authors, Donald Bain (Murder She Wrote), Gayle Lynds (Book of Spies), Dennis Palumbo (Murder Image), Susan Arnout Smith (Timer Game); nationally known radio talk show host, Barbara Whitesides and two-time Oscar winner for Hurt Locker, sound engineer, Paul Ottosson, all give the book a thumbs-up.

I can’t wait to hear what you think…
