S.L. Pierce spent ten years earning a PhD in engineering before deciding she would rather be a writer. She currently lives in Colorado with her husband and four children. She is always at work on her next novel.

MY TAKE ON THIS BOOK: AWESOME!!! This is action packed, a non-stop thriller that leaves you in suspense as you read this book. You find out the answers when she finds out answers. She does not keep you in the dark. For action-packed thrillers, this is the Author to watch! I really enjoyed her book! You never lost interest! Talk about Secrets, she has them! The person who you would least expect to NOT know about them will surprise you! It's about time we have a female character who is so good at solving crime!

Rejected Book Covers This is a snippet from S L Pierce's Blog!
First, the new tour stop today is Lauriehere. Leave a comment! One commentor will win a copy of Secrets.
Next, my own tour post:
I think I have posted about the importance of a book cover before (as have many). So I thought I would post a couple of the other possible covers I was considering for Secrets. You will see they are almost identical to what I did end up using. What I can't show you are the sixty photos I took just to get this one that worked for me. Yes, sixty photos. I went close up, far away, different angles, different lighting, a larger circuit board, no flashlight, etc. I am so glad for my next book (The Devil's Game coming this month) I have a cowriter who is also an awesome artist and photographer, who did our cover!
Here are the two covers rejected book covers:




Leave a comment through this Sunday, June 19th, to enter to win a copy!!! PLEASE LEAVE YOUR EMAIL SO I CAN CONTACT YOU!!! THE COPY OF THIS BOOK IS AN E-BOOK ONLY!!!

ENJOY!!! Laurie

  5. Donna!
    Hi there! I'm SO glad you visited today!! It is a great book! When I say it's action packed, it IS! It's non-stop! What I really like is you find out what is going on when the main character finds out! You can actually figure this out with her! However, she has some really good 'Secrets' she pulls out of her hat! Thanks again!

  8. Thank YOU, S. L. Pierce for allowing me the opportunity to read your book and be able to post the info on it! I LOVED the article on the importance of book covers! I have always thought they were important, but never thought about the 'font'! I always like what the cover photo looks like, but never took into consideration the font. I did a double-take when I read your article! Now I will be paying even MORE attention to font choices on covers! Maybe that is why I think to myself, sometimes wondering WHY did the author choose that cover? The photo may be fine, and with a font change, that can make ALL the difference! The article was wonderful! It surely gave me 'food for thought'! I will never look at a book cover the same way again! Thanks!

  9. The book sounds wonderful - love a fast paced thriller. Ah yes- Fonts DO make a difference in cover impact. The final version has a better "shifty" look to it. :-)
    Thank you S.L for the Giveaway and to Laurie for hosting.

  17. Hello Everyone!
    I am back from taking my son and his friend fishing! We went to the Port Huron Park which is right on the river under and next to the Bridge to Canada! Right at the opening of the mouth of Lake Huron! In a previous post I commented on, I talked ALL about the record-breaking snow we got this last winter!
    Anyway, here is the Author's Blog Site!!!
    www.slpierce.blogspot.com
    In the Upper lefthand side column, you will see she is offering a FREE book!! It is called "Warning" by S L Pierce!!! Thank YOU S L Pierce!!! Go on over now and click on her link and get your FREE copy!! You are also entered into THIS Giveaway for the FREE Ebook! If you don't win, you can purchase THIS book for 99cents at Amazon! Remember - you can download a Kindle PC APP for your COMPUTER!! Just in case you don't have an E-reader yet!!! I had it before I got my Kindle in the beginning of April! I LOVE my Kindle!!! I could NOT live without it!!! I recommend EVERYONE get one!!! I have a LINK in the lefthand side column of my Blog where you can click on it and it will take you right to the Kindle to purchase it!! Let me give you a hint! I took my Kindle WITH ME TODAY!! I bought the little bit more expensive model with the 3G on it in case I don't have WiFi. It is SO worth it!! I was browsing books while riding in the car!! It was SO awesome!! I also browsed books and downloaded a few at the park! I LOVED IT!!! That is the 3G model. It costs about $30 more, but SO worth it!! Say you don't have Internet service for some reason, you STILL have the 3G service on the Kindle!! I LOVE IT!!!
    Don't forget to go get your FREE book! I am SURE the author would LOVE a comment about her FREE book on her blog! If you get a chance! Enjoy!
    Have a GREAT rest of the weekend!!
