Today I want to take a few minutes to give some blog time to a wonderful author and publisher, Claire Plaisted. She has a new book out called Double Crossed, the fifth book in the Garrett Investigations Bureau Series. I figured the best way to talk to you about Claire and her series, was to let her do it in her own words. So without further ado… Claire Plaisted!
Hi my name is Claire Plaisted. I am married with four children and a wonderful life in Rotorua, New Zealand. I am a Family History Researcher who fell into writing by accident in 2011 while waiting for information for a Family History Book. It wasn’t Garrett Investigation Bureau (GIB) though will be published next year.
I write many different genres including childrens, young adults, historical, and of course GIB, which has at least another 3 books to be written. I have published 10 books so far. All are on Kindle and a few are in paperback.
I am also an Indie Publisher for Indie Authors as well as making photo books, family history books, and much more.
These are my links
Garrett Investigation Bureau Series
The Garrett Investigations Bureau Series was born in 2013 and first published on 7th November 2013. This was my first offical series.
Double Crossed is the 5th book in the Garrett Investigation Bureau Series though is in fact the 6th book due to the prequel ‘Hidden Agenda,” which is the third book I wrote. Confused…Yeah I’m good like that.
Double Crossed is about Jones, a man of mystery, who has been around for a long time. I would call him a Double Agent, but others might call him a Slave serving a Master.
Following him and a team of security and agents though time, torture, the paranormal, and even a cult, to see if his life is worth saving. Can he be a hero after all?
Double Crossed, Book 5 is on sale for $2.99
Meet Jones the delectable double agent who isn’t. Confused, so is he. Working for Garrett Investigation Bureau for the last 6 months or so, he finds good friends and a love which could kill him. Is he really a double agent or a slave to a master?
