Tour Kick Off - Captured Lies by @maggiethom2 #giveaway

Book #1 The Caspian Wine Series
Date Published: October 2012   
She was kidnapped not once but twice and now someone wants her dead because of it...
Her life was a lie!
Bailey knew her upbringing wasn’t normal but she’s worked hard to stabilize her life. At 29, she finally has a good business, a stable home; her life is miles from that of her childhood. Then suddenly her mother dies, leaving a gaping hole and a discovery that they may not even be related. If Guy, the private investigator is to be believed, her life is a lie. Using the skills she learned on the streets, Bailey travels back through a sketchy and dangerous past, to find answers. Dodging bullets, staying ahead of those who want her dead and convincing Guy she can do it alone, are making it difficult to discover not only the secrets of her mother’s past but that of a family claiming she is theirs.
Everyone seems to have a story... but who’s telling the truth? And who wants her dead? Is Guy part of the solution? Or part of the problem? To discover the facts, she’ll have to untangle a web of deceit, lies, and secrets, dating back over thirty years.

But can she do it in time...

Captured Lies won Book of the Month LAS Reviews (March 2014)

"This is a story that when you start to read it you don’t want to put it down until you finish it." Cindy's Reviews
"Captured Lies is a very edge of your seat sort of book... I was totally enthralled with this book..." Tammy's Tea Time
"Maggie Thom has a hidden gem with Captured Lies!... Like an onion, each layer of this action-packed tale becomes more involved, more wickedly deceitful and more dangerous..." Tome Tender

"Captured Lies is an outstanding book and it was a book I couldn't put down..." Dee Sauter (Moderator Linda Howard Book Junkies)

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
I think writing is the most exciting and fulfilling career there is. There are so many areas to choose from - novels, freelance, articles, ghostwriting, fiction, nonfiction, technical… Really when you think about it every business needs a writer. J

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
I think it's when to stop the edits and the rewrites and know that it needs outside eyes to read and critique. So I guess it's that moment when you upload it to send off to your beta readers to get feedback and you hit the send button. J

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
I have a few writers and authors who I use for ideas, feedback, critiques. I also have a few people who are readers so I can get a different perspective on my writing.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I have three novels currently published and I am working on two more - Deadly Ties and Split Seconds.

Deadly Ties - What connection could there be between a twenty year-old murder and a thirty year-old murder and a present day attack on Kyara's mother? Did her grandmother falsely go to jail for twenty-years?

Split Seconds - Twins sisters meet for the first time as adults and soon discover that someone has gone to great lengths to keep them apart and will even kill to ensure that continues. 

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
I love to read. I am currently reading Everyone Burns by John Dolan. It's a crime mystery that's a bit different than the norm. I'm very caught up in it.

Award winning author, Maggie Thom, took the challenge and leapt off, leaving a fulltime, twenty year career in management, to write full time. After publishing her first suspense/thriller book Captured Lies, October 2012, she published her second novel, Tainted Waters, April, 2013. Tainted Waters went on to win 2013 Suspense and Thriller Book of the Year through Turning the Pages Magazine and Captured Lies won book of the Month through LAS Reviews (February 2014). She published her third novel, Deceitful Truths (The Caspian Wine Series - Book 2), March 2014. An avid reader and writer her whole life, she decided to break the monotony of wishing to be an author by making it happen. She is a wholehearted nature lover and likes nothing better than to take a book, hike to a remote spot by a river or waterfalls and read. Married to her best friend, she is learning that humor, love and patience help her navigate her way through her twins’ teen years. Her motto: Escape to read and Read to escape. "Maggie Thom writes a fast paced thriller laced with romance that keeps the reader interested and on edge!" InDtale Magazine
