Happy Book Birthday to Tatia’s Tattoo | by Linda Brendle

Final_Tatia's Tattoo Cover trim size    Fallen Angel Final Cover Front

One year ago today, my first novel was released. Tatia’s Tattoo was a work of love inspired by the shocking knowledge that child sex trafficking takes place, not just in foreign countries and large metropolitan areas, but in small towns like the one where I live. This year I have been working on the second phase of Tatia’s story, and Fallen Angel Salvage is now available for preorder.

Tatia’s Tattoo

As a successful D.C. lawyer, Tatia’s mission in life is to destroy the sex trafficking trade in small-town America. She knows where to find it. She’s been there.

With only apathetic foster parents to protect her, she fell prey to the local pimp. Trapped in the sordid underbelly of a small Texas town, she survived by sheer will. Her friendship with her fellow victim Cindy was the only light of humanity in the darkness until she saw a familiar face. Would Mrs. G, a mama bear of an attorney, still think she had strength and potential? Would Jesse, the young Christian tattoo artist and biker, still look at her with a twinkle in his eyes? Or would they both see only the mark of shame Eric had etched onto her forearm?

Fallen Angel Salvage

He ruined her life once; will he do it again?

The rest of the story, from the author of Tatia’s Tattoo.

Tatia and Jesse have a perfect life in Chicago. Her testimony put Eric in prison in Texas twenty years ago. How could anything go wrong?

A mysterious envelope invades their home with news of a trafficker’s parole, and a handwritten note asks the ominous question: Is Joy as brave as her mother?

An old black van. A missing child. Tatia and Jesse race through the city streets with a band of bikers while Johnny and Jade dig through the dark web and Detectives Nelson and Martin pound on doors.

Will it be enough? Or will Joy become another statistic?

Release date is July 30. Preorder now in Paperback (Ebook available soon)




Gremlins that multiply in the night | by Linda Brendle

Published by the Rains County Leader on June 12, 2018:

clothes hangersThere are certain things in the world that multiply when one’s back is turned. One of those things is clothes hangers, wire and otherwise. Unless you’re a neat freak, which I’m not, you’ve had the frustrating experience of trying to untangle a pile of these pieces of metal and plastic and have finally wondered if folding and stacking might be a better idea.

Aside from hangers, the next thing that is usually suggested when the subject of prolific growth comes up is rabbits. I have no personal experience to draw from, but supposedly two can become a hundred in a matter of weeks. If rabbits are anything like wild pigs, I believe it’s possible! (more…)

Tatia’s Tattoo Quote – Forgive Me | by Linda Brendle

Forgive me

Tatia’s Tattoo is the story of sex trafficking in small-town America. As a successful D.C. lawyer, Tatia’s mission in life was to destroy the trade. She knew where to find it. She’d been there.

This novel exposes a problem that most of us think happens only in another world. Tatia’s Tattoo will be released later this summer.

This week I need 18 more preorders to help justify production. Ebooks are $10; autographed print copies are $20. goo.gl/ZAMRjl

Together I believe we can make a difference!
