“The Diary of a Broken Father” Cover Reveal by Sylvia Stein ( @sylvia_stein07 )

The Diary of a Broken Father

by

Sylvia Stein

 Cover DiaryofaBrokenFatherFINAL-Amazon-2

Expected release date: June of 2016

Hello everyone,

I am so happy to be able to reveal the cover to my upcoming book, “The Diary of a Broken Father.”

This is a prequel to my novella Closure which was published in July 31, 2014.    This details the story from Garrison James point of view and this story will deal with his struggles through AA and direct the story from his own eyes. 

The main reason I wanted to write his story is because I did have readers ask me about him and felt they wanted me to have expanded on him more. This is his story and all the laments he has for what he is done. 

For now, I hope you enjoy the amazing cover designed by the awesome Natasha Brown.

Chasing Clarity

by

Sylvia Stein

 ChasingClarity-Amzn-2

“What happens when you lose the person most important to you and are left to pick up the pieces?

Mia Gerard had always wanted to be a trained dancer yet she has just lost the love of her life in a tragic accident. Leo Dancy was her best friend and soul mate. As she tries to deal with losing him, she finds his absence unbearable and she feels lost without him.

But then a great opportunity arises for Mia that she just can’t turn down.

She is accepted into the New York Dance Academy of performing arts.

At first she is overwhelmed but once she gets there she begins to allow herself to heal.

This is when she comes across Henry Watson a painter with aspirations of acquiring his own exhibit one day. While she ponders her feelings for Henry, will she be too late? or will she find the clarity she needs and chase after him?”

About Joyce T. Strand

 040erinkatephoto

Joyce T. Strand is the author of who-done-it mysteries set in the San Francisco Silicon Valley and Napa-Sonoma wine regions of California.

Her most recent novel, HILLTOP SUNSET, is the first of a new series featuring protagonist Brynn Bancroft, a financial guru in transition to winemaker from corporate executive. Brynn Bancroft is a minor character in Strand’s novels ON MESSAGE, OPEN MEETINGS, and FAIR DISCLOSURE—three mysteries solved by Jillian Hillcrest, a publicist whose boss was Chief Financial Officer Brynn Bancroft.

Much like her protagonist Jillian Hillcrest, Strand headed corporate communications at several biotech and high-tech companies in California’s Silicon Valley for more than 25 years. Unlike Jillian, however, she did not encounter murder in her career. She focused on writing by-lined articles, press releases, white papers, and brochures to publicize her companies and their products.

Strand lives with her two cats and collection of cow statuary in Southern California, and seeks out and attends as many Broadway musicals and other stage plays as possible.

She received her Ph.D. from the George Washington University, Washington, D.C. and her B.A. from Dickinson College, Carlisle, PA

HILLTOP SUNSET is available November 12, 2014 on Amazon (Paperback and Kindle) and Barnes and Noble’s Nook. For a peek, check out an excerpt at: http://joycestrand.com

Meet New Protagonist and Mystery

By Jillian Hillcrest, Character  

 

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce you to Brynn Bancroft, a new protagonist in Joyce T. Strand’s most recent mystery, HILLTOP SUNSET.

I’m Jillian Hillcrest. I solved the murders in Strand’s first three mysteries ON MESSAGE, OPEN MEETINGS, and FAIR DISCLOSURE. In those books, Brynn Bancroft served as Chief Financial Officer of my company and also as my boss.

Strand’s newest book, HILLTOP SUNSET, features Brynn Bancroft as the star. Oh, I’m still around, but Brynn dominates.  A shapely blonde with a MENSA IQ, Brynn had an affair with the CEO of the company. Unfortunately for Brynn, the CEO’s wife figured out that the two were involved and asked Brynn to leave the company, which she agreed to do.

In the meantime, her husband of 14 years, Liam grew tired of waiting for Brynn to commit to their relationship and asked for a divorce, even though He understood that Brynn grew up in an abusive household. At the same time, he solicited her assistance in developing his new winery in Sonoma County, Calif.

Much like me in the previous Strand books, Brynn, too, attracts mystery and murders as she grows to enjoy life at her ex-husband’s Hilltop Sunset Winery.

Like all Joyce T Strand books, HILLTOP SUNSET is drawn from an actual California case.

HILLTOP SUNSET: A BRYNN BANCROFT MYSTERY

A mystery set in wine country pitting financial exec Brynn Bancroft against a determined stalker, a troubled love interest, and career clashes.

 

Brynn Bancroft learns that a former employee who beat her nearly to death has returned to stalk her and her friend, Jillian Hillcrest, also a former victim.  Recently divorced, Brynn turns to a new love interest only to encounter additional unwelcome issues. Meanwhile, short-timer Brynn, who has resigned from her Silicon Valley company, becomes bored fulfilling her remaining responsibilities there.

Between her stalker and her new love interest, Brynn faces a series of life-threatening events.
