I'm Alex Sokoloff, author of eleven supernatural, paranormal and crime thrillers. I'm a Thriller Award winner and Anthony and Bram Stoker Award nominee, a recovering screenwriter, and the workshop leader of the internationally acclaimed Screenwriting Tricks for Authors series (and the one on the right in this photo, taken at the historic and haunted Hotel Monteleone in the French Quarter.)
I'm thrilled to be able to introduce my Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI series to you all in my favorite city on the planet — and in a haunted brewery! I like to cross my crime thrillers with a hint of what might be supernatural, so even though the series is set in California and the Western states, New Orleans' natural spookiness is a perfect backdrop for me to talk about the books.
The series follows haunted FBI agent Matthew Roarke on a hunt for what may be that most rare of killers: a female serial.
"This interstate manhunt has plenty of thrills... Sokoloff's choice to present both Roarke's and the killer's points of view keeps the suspense taut and the pages flying."
-- Kirkus Reviews
I love the suspense and range of cross-country investigations, but I also wanted to explore crimes that are generally perpetrated by men against women - but from a completely different point of view than we usually see from male authors (and filmmakers). I've been very gratified at how readers have responded to the series and by their dedication to my characters.
I first published Books 1 and 2, Huntress Moon and Blood Moon independently (and was nominated for the first-ever ITW Thriller Award for Best e Book Original Novel). Now the Huntress series has been picked up by Thomas & Mercer, and both books will relaunch in June, with brand-new Book 3, Cold Moon, coming in October.
There will be free books available to all who attend the party, but if you don't feel like lugging books back in your suitcase, or if you prefer e books, you can request any of these three books in any format, and we'll get them to you free of charge. Just drop me an e mail at alex AT alexandrasokoloff DOT com with your snail mail and/or email address to request:
- Huntress Moon (Book 1 of the Huntress/FBI Thrillers): signed ARC, all e formats
- Blood Moon (Book 2 of the Huntress/FBI Thrillers): signed ARC, all e formats
- Cold Moon (Book 3 of the Huntress/FBI Thrillers) signed ARC, all e formats
Or just download a copy of Huntress Moon here.
Please also feel free to request a signed hardcover of my spooky thriller Book of Shadows.
And if you are a librarian and would like permanent e book copies of any of my books for your library (unlimited loans for all branches for a one-time fee of $4.99) please ask me about E Books Are Forever!
