The Middle Sister Book Tour: Author Q&A and Giveaway for a Paperback!

About the Book:
The Middle Sister follows lovable character Jack Salvo -- philosophy professor by day, hardboiled private detective by night. When a wealthy woman hires him to find her wayward daughter Lillie, who has been missing for a week, Salvo figures the girl is probably hiding out with friends. All he has to do is interview her crew, bust their stories open, and deduce the missing girl’s location. Easy, right? Not when he soon learns that her “friends” are somewhat parasitic. And when he finds Lillie, she is hosting different kinds of parasites -- the little ones that help rid the world of rotting corpses. Pulled into a maze of murder, arson, and blackmail, Salvo quickly finds himself on a high-speed run down L.A.’s fast lane, sparring with grifters and gangsters, dodging the cops, and digging up a dark, deadly family secret.

The Middle Sister not only takes readers on a page-turning adventure that keeps them guessing, but also gives an inside look into the city of angels. It brings readers to real-life locations from the Sunset Strip, the “Bird Streets” of the Hollywood Hills to Old Bel Air, the Castellammare neighborhood in Pacific Palisades, and Musso and Frank Grill, Hollywood’s oldest eatery.

Available on Amazon

A Q&A with the Jesse Miles, Author of the Popular Jack Salvo Series:

Q: How did the Jack Salvo character come about?

Miles: My full-time job and youthful restlessness made writing difficult, but I hacked away over the years, and the Jack Salvo character began to take shape. I read Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, Elmore Leonard, Ross MacDonald, Robert Parker, Mickey Spillane, and others. I read some of their novels a second and third time. I read Raymond Chandler again and again, with a special reverence.

Most of Jack Salvo’s qualities are traditional. Like a knight or a Western hero, he has to be strong and brave, and possess a hard-wearing sense of justice. He has to feel empathy for victims and anger at predators. He has to be a soft touch for those in need. Like a savvy cop, he observes the human condition with a balance of cynicism and hope. With regard to integrity, he is no angel, but always honorable.

Q: What are some of the true-to-life Los Angeles locations featured in the book?

Miles: The Sunset Strip has always provided an interesting blend of glamour and corruption. My visits are less frequent than they were in my younger days, but it’s still fun.

Blue Jay Way, in the “Bird Streets” of the Hollywood Hills, was the inspiration for one of the Beatles’ songs.

The older, original sections of Bel Air have a quiet, aristocrat ambience, for the most part. The specific area I had in mind for the Manning residence in The Middle Sister includes the mansion that was used for the exterior shots of the Beverly Hillbillies’ home.

The Castellammare neighborhood in Pacific Palisades is known for its ocean view, the concrete steps that run up and down the hillside, and the mysterious 1935 death of actress Thelma Todd, popularly known as “Hot Toddy.”

Musso and Frank Grill is the oldest eatery in Hollywood. This year is their one-hundred-year anniversary.

Q: Your books definitely have a classic 1940s private-eye feel to them, but set in modern day. What draws you to that genre?

Miles: Soon after I started my corporate career, I read all the Raymond Chandler mysteries back-to-back. The stories jumped off the page and smacked me in the face. I had never seen words used so economically and so effectively. I knew then that I had to write L.A. private detective fiction. This was a big turnaround for me. I had been a science fiction reader since I was ten years old. I had entertained the idea of writing science fiction, but not crime fiction.

Q: Your novels are set in very interesting locations. Why did you place this one in Los Angeles?

Miles: I understand L.A. I’ve been here a long time, and I’ve seen it from many different perspectives. The nooks and crannies in the canyons are among my favorite places. The historical crime scenes are also interesting.

Jack Salvo might have to travel out of town to pursue evidence in a case, but the heart of the story has to be in L.A.

Q: There’s a philosophical slant to each of your books -- what was the motivation behind this unique element?

Miles: When I was in college, there was a brilliant young professor in the Philosophy Department. He wasn’t athletically inclined, but he had the size and appearance of an NFL quarterback. In addition to publishing scholarly papers in philosophy journals, he was a true educator. He wasn’t happy until he saw light bulbs blazing over his students’ heads. He had movie star looks and a top-drawer Ph.D. We’ll call him Professor X.

The girls swooned over him. That was especially annoying to me, since the swooning girls included my favorite coed. He was mild-mannered and uncompromisingly polite, like Clark Kent. He was the sort of man who would speak to the custodian in the same cordial tone as he would to the college president.

I don’t know what sparked this thought, but somewhere in the development of the Jack Salvo character, I asked myself, “What if Professor X were a tough guy with a short fuse? What if he were inclined to punch the noses of the phonies, bullies, and other degenerates that are so prevalent in L.A.? What if he had a compulsion toward frankness and sarcasm that precluded his fitting into a scholastic environment?” It seemed like an interesting blend of erudition and grit, and I went with it.

Q: So what is next for Jack Salvo -- is there another book we can expect?

Miles: The title is Theory of Justice, and it’s the fourth book in the Jack Salvo series. Jack’s father Karl was a policeman who was shot down in the line of duty when Jack was six years old. Jack has only a few vague memories of his father, all of them positive. On most mornings, Jack parks his BMW behind his Pico Boulevard office, which is located in a small building he owns. The rear of the BMW sits about a hundred feet from the point where Karl Salvo died in the alley. The story begins with Jack working a few uninteresting cases. Then he is notified that a major clue has turned up in his father’s murder. Compared to the first three books in the series, Theory of Justice is more of a traditional whodunnit, with a list of suspects that has to be whittled down.

About the Author:
JESSE MILES grew up in Central California, where his ancestors had arrived from Arkansas and Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl migration. When he was eleven years old, his father took him on a business trip to Los Angeles, and little Jesse immediately decided he wanted to live in L.A.

During his college years in Orange County and Los Angeles, his part-time and summer jobs included work as an insurance investigator in the Hollywood area. That work experience provided some thought-provoking insights into the human condition and laid part of the foundation for his writing detective novels.

He earned an MBA at UCLA and put in three decades with a large corporation, working mostly in computer security. Over the years, he worked with a wide range of law enforcement and military intelligence veterans, learning many lessons of criminality, investigation, and survival.

Jesse currently lives in the Brentwood district of Los Angeles. His interests include classic films, pro football, and Formula 1. In his spare time, he goes to the gym and hikes in the Santa Monica Mountains.

Cowbird Creek Book 1
by Karen A. Wyle 
Genre: Western Historical Romance 


Joshua Gibbs survived the Civil War, building on his wartime experiences to become a small town doctor. And if he wakes from nightmares more often than he would like, only his dog Major is there to know it. 

Then two newcomers arrive in Cowbird Creek: Clara Brook, a plain-speaking and yet enigmatic farmer’s daughter, and Freida Blum, an elderly Jewish widow from New York. Freida knows just what Joshua needs: a bride. But it shouldn’t be Clara Brook! 

Joshua tries everything he can think of to discourage Freida’s efforts, including a wager: if he can find Freida a husband, she’ll stop trying to find him a wife. Will either matchmaker succeed? Or is it Clara, despite her own scars, who can heal the doctor’s troubled heart?

Karen A. Wyle was born a Connecticut Yankee, but eventually settled in Bloomington, Indiana, home of Indiana University. She now considers herself a Hoosier. Wyle's childhood ambition was to be the youngest ever published novelist. While writing her first novel at age 10, she was mortified to learn that some British upstart had beaten her to the goal at age 9. 

Wyle is an appellate attorney, photographer, political junkie, and mother of two daughters. Her voice is the product of almost five decades of reading both literary and genre fiction. It is no doubt also influenced, although she hopes not fatally tainted, by her years of law practice. Her personal history has led her to focus on often-intertwined themes of family, communication, the impossibility of controlling events, and the persistence of unfinished business.

The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire Book Tour: Giveaway for a Swag Pack


The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire
Books I and II
by Colette L. Saucier
Genre: Paranormal Regency Romance 

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER: The definitive vampire adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and its sultry sequel in one volume!


Books 1 and 2 of the award-winning, international bestselling Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire, re-released in this special edition only on eBook for a limited time at an incredible price.


BOOK I: Pulse and Prejudice


Elle Magazine selection "A Most Inventive Adaptation" (April, 2016)

Austenprose "Readers' Choice, Top 5 Books of the Year" (2012)

1st Place Winner in Category, 2013 Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction


Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy -- elegant, dark, brooding ... vampire. The Master of Pemberley tells his haunting tale of unquenchable desire and forbidden love.

"I cannot express enough how skeptical I was upon starting this book. Pride & Prejudice with a touch of vampires was enough to send me into fits of eye rolls. But, within only the first chapter, I found myself strangely drawn to the story. The vampire Darcy weaves his spell quickly." ~Austenprose

Book II: Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth

In this lurid, lusty sequel to Pulse and Prejudice, death shadows the newlywed Darcys from Pemberley to the parlors of Regency London to the courtyards of Antebellum New Orleans. As Elizabeth discovers the trials and travails of marriage to a vampire, can Darcy ever believe that she loves him as he is? Or will his jealousy tear them apart?

This is the sequel to Pulse and Prejudice; however, as it is not an Austen adaptation, the reader will find it darker, bloodier, and more provocative than Book 1.

"After taking the plunge into this dark and haunting world, I am bloody thrilled to say that I just loved this sequel! The story examines the beauties and frailties of Darcy and Elizabeth's love and devotion to each other while folding it into a world filled with gothic danger. It is action-packed and left me turning pages rather quickly, while at the same time being filled with well-developed characters whose inner turmoils make the reader empathize with each of their own plights." ~C.A. Pepe, Just Jane 1813







Colette L. Saucier is a bestselling and award-winning author in a variety of genres under multiple pseudonyms. Her novel Pulse and Prejudice, Book I: The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire, the highly acclaimed paranormal adaptation of the Jane Austen classic, was the 2013 Chatelaine Awards 1st Place Winner in Category, Romantic Fiction. Elle Magazine named Pulse and Prejudice a "Most Inventive Adaptation" of Pride & Prejudice in their April 2016 edition. It was also selected the 2013 1st Place Winner in Category: Chatelaine Awards Romantic Fiction.


An abridged version of The Proud and the Prejudiced: A Modern Twist on Pride and Prejudice was selected a 2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Semi-finalist and Austensque Reviews’ Favorite Modern Adaptation under the title All My Tomorrows.


Colette’s latest release is the controversial erotic noir suspense, The Widow. She will be releasing Dearest Bloodiest Elizabeth, Book II: The Confession of Mr. Darcy, Vampire in eBook August, 2016, and print in October.

A writer, world-traveler, empty-nester, and a literature, history, wine & cheese lover, Colette lives in Southeast Louisiana with her historian husband and their dogs.
