< THE COLUMNIST'S BLOG Leslie Ward, a star columnist’s at New York News Events, whose column created a big buzz in different social networks including her own blog became a target of a blogger with a twisted mind whose arguments with the rest of her bloggers resulted into a deadly spin leaving murdered victims in the city. AVAILABLE on hard cover, paperback, download, e-book and e-pad
Here's what my publisher say about this book:

"Dear Elizabeth ,
You recently published THE COLUMNIST'S BLOG and made it available to the world in the Lulu Marketplace. Thank you. We're thrilled to have such a remarkable work in our catalog!"

"THE COLUMNIST'S BLOG" will soon be available at Amazon,Com, Barnes and Noble, Baker and Taylor.


A US marine came home from a five years deployment from Iraq after he was discharge due to an illness that prevented him from performing his duty. No one is more appreciative than his mother who agonizes every minute of his stay in the war zone. But the excitement and happiness of his coming home was interrupted by an episode of his illness landing him in a Veteran’s hospital where he stayed until he recovered. What he will do next is beyond every parent’s nightmare, for he came home with a secret mission in mind that will shock the nation.


AVAILABLE on hard cover, paperback, download, e-book or e-pad




When a business woman from the United States decided to visit Hyde Park in London for the second time, she did not expect to come in contact with a woman who will leave an emotional imprint in her life. She suspected that the mysterious woman intentionally left a journal for her to discover.  Strangely, their brief encounter  became a prelude to murders happening in the city of London. Only when she learned of the woman’s death at Trafalgar Square on the news after she left London that she realized she will be part of something big, something that will uncover the dark days of World War II---- the evil acts of the Nazi regime. 

Chief Inspector Victoria Redgrave cannot catch a break. No leads and no relevant evidence makes this a random one, but as more deaths surfaced, she couldn't help but she cannot help wonder if those  were all connected. 

As the murder investigation turns into a race to catch the killer, the journal proves to be more valuable than ever. Will it hold the answer to the growing mystery before its too late?





A successful Exotic Travel executive’s life was interrupted by the surprise visit of an acquaintance from her past, a visit that would take her back to a forgotten life she had buried deep inside her mind now threatening a very bright future ahead.


Sarah Perkins became a nameless, faceless member of the group of people again trying

to gather information on anyone and everyone who will cause destruction to the United States and its allies. Not as lucrative as her job at present, this one has no guarantee that she will be able to come back again alive.  A thrilling story of espionage and betrayal.

I used a self publishing company for my book and I really do not like their costumer service. Otherwise I do not have a problem with them and I was looking at lulu and their global distribution and was curious about it. If I do not find an agent for book #2 also I might go that route, but I wanted to hear something about the company this time. I'm use the to self marketing, I've been working on that already. Thank you!!

Dear Book Lover:

I am the national bestselling, award winning author of six critically acclaimed novels. Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction.

On Jan 9th, 2010 my debut novel, SUGAR will celebrate its 10th anniversary and in order to commemorate this milestone I am campaigning to sell 10,000 copies between now and that date.

“Bernice L. McFadden's first novel begins with the brief, poetic description of a crime so startling that the reader is helplessly drawn in, as if a bright red door stood ajar on a bleak and forbidding house. Pearl Taylor's daughter, Jude, has been found murdered and mutilated near a field at the edge of town. "The murder had white man written all over it," writes McFadden. "But no one would say it above a whisper. It was 1940. It was Bigelow, Arkansas. It was a black child. Need any more be said?" In the years that follow, Pearl catches sight of Jude in so many strangers that when Sugar Lacey comes to town and sets up her unwholesome "business" in the house next door, she doesn't know whether to believe what she sees in Sugar's face: a striking similarity to Jude, dead 15 years. In her sedate but supple prose--rising at times to a light, unforced lyricism in the description of landscape or character--the author perfectly renders the closed and protective society of a small Southern town, the superstitions, gossip, and prying.”

I’m asking that you purchase a copy of SUGAR for yourself, a friend or family member. Yes, KINDLE purchases count!

And if you could help spread the word by blogging, twittering ad Face-booking my campaign, it would mean the world to me.

Peace & Light,

Bernice L. McFadden
