Book Spotlight and a Giveaway! Cunja by Donnette Smith


Cunja by Donnette Smith
ebook, 211 pages
Published September 8th 2012 by Decadent Publishing

Attractive news-reporter, Priscilla Hart is guilty of using her charm to con Detective, Logan Payne out of privileged information for a homicide story she is covering. When the killer attacks her, she's forced to turn to the man she swindled for protection. Helping Priscilla is the last thing on Logan's mind. He's more interested in getting her to confess she fabricated the assault to get closer to her sources again.

But as the case heats up, Logan finds himself torn between giving in to the smoldering desire he feels for Priscilla and distancing himself from her to focus on the biggest murder investigation of his career. Soon the trail of the predator leads to the unearthing of a mysterious medallion, and an ancient Cajun spell known as Cunja. Priscilla stands at the center of a sadistic voodoo priest's plan for revenge. As the clock of doom winds down, Logan will do anything to save her. But saving her, he soon discovers, is only the tip of the iceberg.

About the author

For those who would like to know a little about me

I am the mother of three grown children, a devoted wife of 25 years, and an author by birth. I was born in Jacksonville Florida in 1969. Moved to Marietta Georgia with my family in 1985 where I met my future husband at the age of 16. In 1992 we moved to Blue Ridge Texas and built a home in the country. Here I reside today. There's just something about country living I can't get out of my bones. The peace and quiet will keep me here forever.

Things I love

I got my love of books from my mother who is the most avid reader on the planet and my love of singing too. When I was a little girl and we had a power-outage in the middle of the night, my parents would wake all six of us kids up, and we would sit in the living-room while dad strummed the guitar and sing until the lights came back on. This is one of my most cherished memories. It's small wonder why I married a musician (well at least he was back in the day). Music is one of my biggest passions in life. It is the only thing besides reading that can move me on so many levels. I also have a hankering for Italian food. Bring on the pasta and cheese. My favorite past-time is curling up in my bed and watching a thriller, mystery, or horror movie.

Things I've done

I've teamed up with talented horror author, Jimmy Gillentine to write a short/crime story entitled The Chosen One. It's part of the Preditors and Editors anthology entitled 'Help' that features a host of short stories by talented authors such as, Gary Braunbeck, Garry Charles, Brian Knight, Steven Mark Rainey and many others. You can purchase it here

I've also worked as a journalist for the Blue Ridge Tribune where I covered a variety of stories including elections, as well as homicide.

I just signed a contract with Decadent Publishing for my newest novel, Cunja. It's a Cajun word that means to put a curse on someone if you were wondering. When I spent 3 years in New Orleans, I learned alot about voodoo. I was so enchanted by my discoveries, I knew I had to write a book about it. Fans of mystery, suspense, thrillers and romance will love this book.
