Win an Autographed Hardcover of “Forgive Me, Alex” by Lane Diamond

Up for grabs: 1 autographed copy of the hardcover edition of Forgive Me, Alex, the psychological suspense thriller by Lane Diamond.

Raffle Dates: June 4 – June 10, 2013.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING ABOUT FORGIVE ME, ALEX

Forgive Me, Alex is a deeply emotional spellbinding psychological thriller. … This story affords us a look into the mind of a serial killer and the tremendous strength of writing in this book makes that a terrifying experience. The writing is exceptional in that it propelled me into the story and into the minds of the main characters as well as keeping me totally fixated on the story.The suspense and tension is this story is very palpable and I found myself thinking about this story long after I had finished. … Lane Diamond has succeeded in bringing to the surface the dark and horrifying mind of a psychotic serial killer while at the same time bringing forth the desperate need for humanity and justice for the victims and their families. I highly recommend this for its powerful and gripping story line. You will be held in a spell that will keep you wanting more and find yourself totally drawn in.” ~ Marilou George – The Kindle Book Review

FORGIVE ME, ALEX is classified as a psychological suspense thriller, and suspense should really be bolded and italicized. There is a certain level of mastery a writer must possess in order to effectively build this kind of breathless expectation in a reader, and Diamond does just that, not only by switching us back and forth between 1978 (when the events that set everything in motion took place) and 1995 (the subsequent aftermath after the serial killer is released), but also by switching up narrative perspectives between our hero and antagonist. Although I was originally afraid all this moving about might harm the linearity of the tale, my fears were unfounded: The story developed and evolved brilliantly, and kept me turning the pages wanting more. More. More. … Diamond does in FORGIVE ME, ALEX what I wish more contemporary authors would do: He brings me right into the story, forcing me to identify with the characters. I didn’t have a choice-I would feel Tony Hooper’s wrath and need for revenge, I would wallow in Mitchell Norton’s desperate inability to ward off his demons. I would cheer for Diana Gregorio’s unbelievable ballsiness in the face of seemingly unbeatable odds. I would weep, shedding actual tears, for Alex Hooper’s childhood.” ~ Anne B. Chaconas

“This book is gruesome and emotional right out of the gate. The main character, Tony, goes through some monumental losses throughout the story. These aren’t the kind of losses that you can just blow off as insignificant because Lane’s writing makes you really care about these people and what’s going on. Lane excels in this area of sympathetic characters. … If you are willing to experience some of the darker sides to life, you’ll walk away with new “friends,” and a deeper understanding of life and appreciation for the loved ones you still have.” ~ Timothy C. Ward

“Psychological thrillers are my kind of books! Not only do I write them, but truly enjoy reading one that makes my skin crawl, my nerves skitter with fear and my heart thump a tad louder. This incredible novel by Lane Diamond handed me ALL of that, in spades! … The ending is a perfect way to ease the reader down from the intense, page-gripping high that the author just yanked them through, leaving the option wide open for a sequel. Out of all the books I have read this year, this one just launched itself to #1 for me!” ~ Ashley Fontainne, Author (“Eviscerating the Snake”)
