Offered: 4 Signed Books by Adrienne Jones


What You Are Bidding On:

A collection of signed books by badass speculative fiction author Adrienne Jones.

Description:

Adrienne Jones has been described as "a woman without fear" when it comes to her writing; her books weave between genre boundaries, combining humor, suspense, horror, and speculative fiction. This auction is for a signed collection of print books, paperbacks and hardcovers.




The Hoax (Mundania Press, 2011) - signed paperback

Bored accountant, Joey Duvaine, needed a career change. World domination seemed like a fun gig.

Allowing himself to become a puppet in his genius friend’s religious con, Joey plays his part in a fraudulent miracle devised by a private special effects team. As the media and the public are divided on whether he’s a modern prophet or a clever scam artist, an FBI agent becomes interested in Joey’s financial transactions, possible terrorist motives, and the overnight popularity of his new cult.

But the agent’s investigation leads him down a path he’s unprepared for, as Joey’s benefactors have barbarous motives beyond the smokescreen of the hoax, and for them, humanity is merely a disguise.



Backbite (Creative Guy Publishing, 2011) - signed paperback

RJ Wyatt never had much ambition, and certainly no interest in entering the medical field like his brilliant father. But when his father dies, he learns he’s inherited more than the family jewels.

Forced to take over a secret lab conducting genetic experiments on the terminally ill, RJ muddles through with the help of his late father’s science team. But he also inherits some dangerous enemies from the old man, and they’re willing to kill to steal his secrets.

What follows is an unfolding mystery of conspiracy, murder and mutants.


Gypsies Stole My Tequila - signed hardcover

Like many people on the cusp of turning 40, former punk rock star Joe Blood is wrestling with the demons of his past. Unfortunately, one of them is living in his wall, and wants him dead by his birthday.









Brine - signed hardcover

Respected artist Elliot Newton returns to his childhood beach home to explore a creative block that’s limited his painting for years. But when he digs too deep, he gets more than he bargained for.

Accidentally summoning the most powerful ghostly force ever known, he inadvertently sets it free from the lighthouse.

It wants vengeance. It wants souls. It wants leather pants.
