My New Baby

By Peg Brantley
Evocative Characters. Intriguing Crime. Compelling Stories.

I knew I needed to order some of my books for upcoming events, but chose to wait until my newest one was ready.

They came today.

Can I just say I don't think I'll ever get tired of seeing my books like this? What a thrill!

I was incredibly fortunate to have endorsements from two highly respected authors.

Dennis Palumbo is both a writer, a former Hollywood screenwriter, and a licensed psychotherapist who writes about (what else?) a psychologist and trauma expert. His crime fiction series features Dr. Daniel Rinaldi. Here's what Dennis had to say:

"Peg Brantley's latest, The Sacrifice, accomplishes that rare feat of being both heartfelt and suspenseful. A gripping tale of murder and revenge, it ultimately becomes something much, much more."

Tim Hallinan writes at least three different series, but my favorite is his Poke Rafferty series set in Thailand, where Tim spends about half of his time. One of my all-time favorite books is part of that series, The Queen of Patpong. I guess my taste is pretty good because that book was nominated for an Edgar. From Tim:

"Peg Brantley has done it again. Her third book (after The Missings and Red Tide) is another thrill ride, a hyperventilation-inducing thriller about evil and power and endangered innocence. And MAYBE a new (and very interesting) sustaining female character. Mex Anderson may have companionship in the next book or two."

I want to thank my fellow authors and CFC blogmates who have given me unflagging support, and each one of my readers who have taken a chance on a new author.

You're the best!


  1. Those endorsements are priceless. Congratulations! Best wishes with your launch. I hope it's going well.

  2. Great to get such enthusiastic praise from the experts, Peg! Can't wait to read The Sacrifice! It's next up on my Kindle, as soon as I finish LJ's Crimes of Memory - which I'm really enjoying!

    1. Crimes of Memory is a terrific story! Thanks for your support, Jodie!

  3. How exciting! I'm really looking forward to reading THE SACRIFICE, Peg!

    1. Okay, long story. This was MY response and not my sister's.

  4. Congrats, Peg, and much success with your new release! It's a special time, so enjoy it!

    Btw, love the cover ;)

    1. Thaks, Andrew. I have been enjoying t his time.

      And yeah... Patty did a fantastic job on the cover.
