Here’s a bit about the book, from the back cover, to some of the good reviews it’s already received.
The Carnival Sniper – as famous as Jack The Ripper. And like Jack The Ripper, never caught, his identity lost to history. In 1913, the Carnival Sniper terrorized Vienna, murdering the famous and not-so-famous alike. Police Detective Johann Runge never caught the Sniper and his failure defined the rest of his life. In 2005, best-selling crime writer Sofie Branstadter receives permission to use modern forensic investigative techniques on the Sniper’s victims. She believes she can figure out the identity of the Sniper, but she needs the help of Runge’s great-grandson, classical pianist Anton Runge. Together the two of them plunge into a world of scientific evidence and fantastic clues, all leading to one unbelievable conclusion.
It’s also been getting great reviews.
RT Book Reviews says:
Set in an alternate reality, this story switches from 1913 to 2005 as the reader follows along on the trail of a killer. Chilling murders, mind-blowing suspense, a touch of time travel and a bit of romance combine for a thought-provoking, entertaining vacation from reality.
Bill Crider’s Pop Culture Magazine says:
This is a fast-moving thriller, and the ending implies that a sequel is in the works. I’ll be reading it.
And AstroGuyz say:
Snipers is an excellent amalgamation of history, thriller, mystery & science fiction. Rusch lays out the period in meticulous detail, as only she can.
You know, out of curiosity I was checking out your Author Page on Amazon and it hit me… Bad enough for us pitiful new authors to worry about one of our few books being discovered. But when you have ** 58 ** pages in your Author Central area, you have a whole different kind of discoverability issue.
How do you organize your series / short stories / stand alone works so that readers can easily find whatever “sub-area” might appeal to them? Clearly Author Central is insufficient for that purpose.
Oh, jeez. I haven’t even tried to deal with the Author Page yet. It overwhelms me. So that’s someone else’s doing or the algorithm. It’s on my to-do list!
