Bad Day Books Welcomes New Author CN Bring

ThrillerSuspenseWomanThrillers come in all shapes and sizes but the common thread is nail biting tension and adrenaline pumping excitement. Psychological thrillers focus on the emotional turmoil of characters rather than their physical strength. Crime thrillers are about criminals, whether vilified or glorified. It may be a courtroom drama with a lot of back story or a private investigator on the trail of a serial killer. While point of view varies, the crime is the focus. In mystery thrillers, the plot must keep the reader turning the page. Who done what is name of the game andThrillerMystery clues, deduction, and suspenseful elements frequently drive the plot forward. All thrillers require well defined characters which are frequently more important than the plot. They may contain elements of horror, mystery, drama, or even humor like Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter. Thriller plots can be political, historical, medical, legal, religious, high-tech, even romantic. I love a good military thriller.

Bad Day Books is, well, thrilled to announce that we have HusbandGravesigned CN Bring’s novel The Pact. The story is the first in a series about a strong female character surviving in a predominately man’s world. Commander Celia Kelly is a perceptive Naval Intelligence Officer rebuilding her life after the tragic loss of her husband. Newly assigned a mission planning Intel for a SEAL Team, the suspicious suicide of a fellow Officer has Kelly questioning everything. With the help of a one of a kind secretary, a by the bookWhoCanBeTrusted assistant, and a Navy SEAL, Kelly discovers she’s been set up. Digging relentlessly, nothing is as it seems. Someone is after twenty million dollars that disappeared when Kelly’s husband went MIA and now that someone is after her! With surprises at the turn of every page, the original characters and three dimensional plot lines keep the suspense going until the very end.
