Benefits of Reading and Learning About Fiction
 
Fiction is not only fun to read, but reading fiction also comes with some surprising benefits. 

Reading fiction increases empathy, giving readers a better understanding of life in other's shoes and things outside their experience. This increase in empathy allows for a stronger ability to react to individual and social situations. 

Reading fiction is also a great way to de-stress. When you want to take a break from the stresses of life, non-fiction doesn't always do the trick, but a good fiction read can transport you to a whole new place. 

Reading fiction also sparks creativity and imagination. 

Whether you're looking to read more or to bring some variety into your reading material, fiction is a great place to start.

 If you've watched all the old vampire movies from the 1930s to about the 1970s, you've probably noticed that vampires are shown getting in and out of their coffins at sunrise and sunset.  the coffin was essential in the past because they are light-tight.  However, modern vampires don't need to sleep in them.  The energy-efficient features and blackout curtains of today's modern homes and hom designs means that vampires don't need to sleep in coffins in the basement or in the cemetary.  All they need is a lgiht-tight area to sleep during the day.

Why Do Vampires Need to Avoid the Light

The traditional vampire is highly allergic to light, specifically sunlight.  Depending on the vampire lore you subscribe to, the light either has a purifying effect on the vampire's putrid tissues, causing them to self-distruct and burn, or the UV part of the sunlight has a sterilizing affect that causes the same problem.  The vampire catches on fire and burns to death.  For this reason, vampires must stay out of sunlight, or they will be burnt to ash within a few minutes.

Vampires and Luxury

Vampires love luxury as much as humans.  This means thy'd much rather sleep in a bed inside a lavish home than in a filth filled coffin.  Living in luxury also means the vampire has a beter chance of attracting their food source - humans.  After all, who would you rather visit - a mysterious man living in a century old mansion or a dirty man living in a trailer park?  I think the answer is self-explanatory.  Most humans would rather cisit a mysterious man who lives in a mansion and serves expensive alcohol than one who lives in squalor and drinks coors light.

1. WHAT IS THUNDERSTORMS AND .45S – 2018 AVIA VERSION

Thunderstorms and .45s is a low-key thriller novel set in 2005. The story takes place in Grand Rapid’s, Michigan. Main characters Avia and Benton are trying to earn some fast cash by scamming a rich socialite out of her money. The story takes a turn for the worse, when the socialite gets into a car wreck and finds out her money is gone. In order to protect themselves, Avia and Benton must silence the woman before the entire deal goes bad.

​2. WHY IS THIS BOOK THE 2018 VERSION?

The original Thunderstorms and .45s was published in 2005. When Avia II was finished in 2017, Avia I (Thunderstorms and .45s) no longer matched. The content was revised and edited to reflect the progression of the story. The content in the 2018 Avia version was 50 to 75 percent rewritten. So, even if you read the original version, you haven’t read this version.

 

 

Thriller author Stacey Carroll has the Avia I and Avia II books out this summer, and they are the heist books you have to read. The crime drama genre has a lot of options for you, but only this series can give you all the things that you want in one book series. You will be completely shocked by this series, and you can read more about it below.  

​1. WHAT IS GOING ON IN THESE BOOKS?  

These books are all about the adventures of a drug running pilot who also happens to be an addict. Right there you get the idea that this woman is not only flawed but searching for her path in life. No one starts into a career as a pilot, expecting to be a drug runner, but she has landed in that world. The author is not just asking us how she gets out of it. She is asking us how she can reconcile herself to her job and her reality.  

​2. THE HEIST AND CRIME ANGLE  

The obvious niche of this book is crime because it is illegal to fly a plane for a drug cartel, but the hero in these books is not perfect. The heist aspect comes in when you least expect it, and it causes you to think about how she will even go on living if she has to run afoul of the cartels.  
 
 
 
So, I have been busting my ass to get the word out about my new thriller/suspense/romance novels over the last week.  To say it's been a trying experience would be an understatement.  Over the last two days, I've gotten more than 10,000 tweet impressions on Twitter and 10 to 15 link clicks.  I think I am finally starting to get somewhere.  However, I have narrowed the field to Twitter and Goodreads.  Those appear to be the only things that really work.  Twitter works well because if you turn on your analytics, you can see an amazing amount of information.  Goodreads only works if you can figure out how to get OUT.  And that is extremely difficult.  I've only just now began to go beyond people who happen to trip over my Goodreads profile.  The good news - I am finally getting somewhere.  My metrics are looking great.

AND NOW FOR THAT AVIA I EXCERPT

FLIGHT, FLARE, SUSPENSE AND A DASH OF FORBIDDEN 

Stacey's Carrolls new series Avia promises a good time and a great read.  If you're looking for a new set of novels, these are the ones we recommend.  Readers just can't get enough of Avia and Benton as they bungle their way through a 50-million dollar heist, navigating cops, criminal charges and personal problems while trying to make a fast buck.
 

 

If you need a good weekend read to help you unwind from the hectic workweek, may be able to help you.  It is jam packed with your favorite Company characters, including Avia, Benton and Brian, as they try to make a fast buck by scamming a not so honest Michigan socialite out of her money.


Of course, Avia, Benton and Brian don’t feel bad about this at all.  It’s been rumored that the socialite is working with rival crime family, The Sanchez, in order to take down the Company.  The urgency is real.  If Avia, Benton and Brian can’t get that money and silence the bitch, they all may be going to jail for the rest of their lives or worse.  It’s a race against the clock, when they learn Stephanie’s hotel rooms are about to be raided.
