THE DEVIL OF LIGHT: Gae-Lynn Woods
Hey, all! After my bout in the swamp last night, I woke up with something tantamount to Spanish moss growing out of my armpits! Epilady is just not workin’ and green is not exactly lining up with my Halloween décor. Blast these anomalies! As if it isn’t hard enough to hide my morphing into a werecat on nights of the full moon, now I have to deal with this! But I’ll stop scraping it off my flesh because it’s Daily Book Giveaway time and I don’t want you to miss this one! It’s all about cults, cabals and neighbors that you think you know, but don’t. Yeah, you had a feeling about some of them being one note shy of Looneytuneville and you were right!
Today it’s all about Texas gal, Gae-Lynn Woods, and there’s nothing tougher than a Texan except for the way they write! She’s no exception (although how she writes with that shotgun under her arm is beyond me!), and there are two ecopies of her debut novel THE DEVIL OF LIGHT up for grabs. It’s the first in the Cass Elliot Crime series, and don’t even get me started on what I had to do to get Gae-Lynn to participate! It was hard sneaking up on her, especially when I was caught in that cattle stampede and trampled underfoot! Damn, cows! Then there was her firing over my head to keep me off her property, but I’m sure she was missin’ on purpose ‘cause she’s a better shot than that! And the flesh wounds will clear up in a week or two—or so the doctor keeps telling me. But in persevering and not giving up, I ended up clinching two ecopies and if that doesn’t spell success I don’t know what does!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Gae-Lynn Woods is a Texan who has traveled the world, lived overseas, and come back home. She and her husband, British jazz guitarist Martyn Popey, share a ranch in East Texas with a herd of Black Angus cattle and one very cranky donkey.
THE DEVIL OF LIGHT and AVENGERS OF BLOOD are the first two books in the Cass Elliot Crime series. When she's not playing the roadie, tending to cows, fixing fence, or digging post holes, Gae-Lynn is working on the third Cass Elliot novel.
THE DEVIL OF LIGHT
"This debut effort is further proof that there are undiscovered novelists out there who can more than keep up with the big names. I expect we'll be hearing more of Gae-Lynn Woods in the future." -- Russell Blake, acclaimed author of The Geronimo Breach, Fatal Exchange, and The Zero Sum trilogy.
A BIZARRE MURDER
Angie Scarborough killed her husband after she discovered his dirty secret – he liked sex with men and little girls. Still raw from her own unsolved rape six years ago, Detective Cass Elliot is stunned when confronted with graphic photographs of faceless men and children scattered across the Scarborough kitchen floor.
A COVERT WEB OF LIES AND EXPLOITATION
Cass and her partner Mitch Stone delve into a cunning world of blackmail and violence – and find a cult concealed for nearly a century beneath the genteel, small town façade of Arcadia in East Texas. Their hunt for child molesters triggers a brutal response from powerful men who will protect their identities at any cost. They unleash a ruthless killer whose actions create a media frenzy and destroy the fabric of trust within the police department.
A PERVASIVE EVIL
Cass and Mitch circle closer to the cult’s few members, following a slim lead into a night lit by fire. A night that begins with a blood ritual and ends with Cass holding a man's life - or death - in her hands and struggling to walk the fine line between vengeance and justice.
