Exclusive Excerpt from ONE SHOT TWO KILLS

As promised, here is an exclusive excerpt from my wife's novel ONE SHOT, TWO KILLS. I decided to post it in a seperate thread so it would not get lost in the sponsorship discussion.

http://members.airsoftcanada.com/val...oftexcerpt.pdf

Special thanks to all those who have voted and valkxb70 who pdf'ed and hosted this file for an internet incompetent like myself.

By way of background to the section of the novel, the protagonist is of Russian ancestry and her name is Innokenti, which is shortened to Kenya. Her grandmother was one of the few female snipers to survive Stalingrad. If I recall correctly the rifle she is using is a Weatherby Mark V.

If you have any constructive criticisms feel free to pm them to me rather than post them on this thread.

And as always, to vote for ONE SHOT, TWO KILLS in this contest, send an email to webmaster@romantictimes.com with ONE SHOT TWO KILLS in the subject line.

For more info on the contest or my wife her bio can be found at:

http://www.romantictimes.com/news_amtitle2.php

and the contest info at:

http://www.romantictimes.com/news_amtitle3.php

Her website will be up soon.

Very nice. Send your wife my compliments; I wish I had such writing talent.

EDIT: Here's hoping our votes get her the American Title.

Hopefully, it will be published by Dorchester as soon as she wins the contest. If not her agent has some good leads with other publishers.

She has some other manuscripts including one about a French Foreign Legionnaire and a thriller about the 12th Iman set in Kenya being marketed at the moment.

When the hit the shelves I'll post a notice if off topic.

Well, I don't have an official opinion on it, but I understand they will only count one vote per e-mail address. I don't think there is a prohibition against multiple votes from different e-mail addresses.

I just read the sample chapter and it was fantastic! I work for a prominent Canadian book publisher in Toronto as a graphic designer. If your wife ever need my services let me know! Alternately, I would gladly pass the manuscript to one of the acquisition editors at my office. I don't know if would mean much because I am only a designer, but it doesn't hurt to try!

Good luck in the contest.
