My book, X5, has finally been released by Evernight Teen! It's been a long process and I'm so grateful for the assistance from both you and my fellow classmates in The Next Step in Creative Writing course. Without the helpful feedback and suggestions, I don't think I could have finished it! The publisher has even made it an Editor's Pick!
Sizzling Hot YA Books gave it 5 Hearts and had this to say:
"I do believe every emotion I could experience, took a hold of me while I read through the pages of this amazing story. I highly, highly recommend X5 to those out there looking for a YA/NA dystopian that takes a different turn, intriguing its readers from the get go."
The book is available as an ebook from Amazon and Kobo, and the paperback is available through Print On Demand from Createspace.

Thank you again for the valuable advice you offered after reading the first draft of my funny murder mystery, Dying For Sex. The changes I made based on your input, resulted in Dying For Sex being published by Sun Dragon Press in July. It is available here.

Dying For Sex by Lynn C. Albrecht
Lindy Sutton has her hands full. In between having her clown act clobbered by pint-sized critics, keeping a group of sex-crazed octogenarians from starting brawls in the raciest bar in town, and trying to keep her crazy Aunt Pip from being tossed out of Laughing Pines retirement home, she still has to contend with her son’s garish band bus parked in her driveway. Could things get any worse?
Yup! Margaret Quaid, the social worker at Laughing Pines is found dead of an apparent overdose and the drop dead handsome detective on the case thinks she stole the drugs from the retirement home and was pretty active in the world of wife swapping to boot.
Lindy’s temper soars, along with her hormones as she sets out to clear Margaret’s name, find the murderer and make the sexy detective eat crow.
Note: Brian is readily available for short consultations and occasionally available for full manuscript evaluations. Details here.
I'm touting my collection of short stories, West End Kid: Tales from the Forties, which chronicle the adventures of a small gang of kids growing up in Hamilton's west end during WWII. Yes, I was there while all these shenanigans were going on but I disclaim any direct involvement in the old can of pee trick and other pranks of that nature.
This is my first effort at self-publishing an e-book which I did through Smashwords (Kobo, iBooks) and Amazon. The book is available at most other online retailers in god-knows-how-many formats.
Thanks once again for your continuing support,
Note: Chris is also the author of A Private Man, published by Seraphim Press. See here.
