Blog Hop with Aaron Paul Lazar

At Amazon Kindle

I'm taking part in a blog hop. This one is about the writing process and more. I've been invited by a wonderful author, Aaron Paul Lazar. This post is about Aaron. He is the author of the award-winning LeGarde Mysteries, Moore Mysteries, Tall Pines Mysteries, and his new love story, The Seacrest, available in Kindle, paperback, and audio.
    Here is a link to Aaron’s original blog piece.

   Aaron Paul Lazar writes to soothe his soul. An award-winning, bestselling Kindle author of three addictive mystery series, writing books, and a new love story, Aaron enjoys the Genesee Valley countryside in upstate New York, where his characters embrace life, play with their dogs and grandkids, grow sumptuous gardens, and chase bad guys. Visit his website at and watch for his upcoming releases, SANCTUARY(2014) and MURDER ON THE SACANDAGA(2014).

   "Aaron Lazar is a master storyteller. He sketches the relationship of man and wife in soft strokes, like a lovely pen and ink drawing on fine paper. A grandparent taking delight in the love of his grandchildren, is a pastel portrait framed in gold. Childhood friendships drenched in sepia tones are like old photographs in a long forgotten album taken from the shelf. Flowers in a garden, horses long gone from their stalls in a barn, the feel of leaf mold in the hands of a man who loves the earth—are sense memories so strong, that individuals spontaneously manifest themselves in complete fullness upon the page" - Natalie Neal Whitefield

   Here’s the cover of Devil's Lake - a new romantic thriller by Aaron Lazar, available at Amazon:
About Devil’s Lake:

After two years of brutal captivity, Portia Lamont has escaped and returned to her family’s Vermont horse farm—only to find her parents gone to New York to try an experimental treatment for her mother’s cancer, and her childhood friend Boone Hawke running the farm. Like the rest of her family, Boone has never given up hope that Portia would return. But when she turns up battered, skinny as a twelve-year-old boy, afraid of everything and unable to talk about what happened, he does the only thing he can—try to help her heal. He summons the town doctor and Portia’s parents, and sets out to put this beautiful, broken woman back together again. Through her family's love and Boone's gentle affection, Portia gradually comes back to herself, and starts to fall for her old friend in a whole new way. But one thing threatens her fragile hope for recovery: The man who took her promised that if she ever escaped, he'd kill her. Slowly. And someone is definitely watching her...waiting to make his next deadly move.

Next week I’ll post the questions for this exercise along with my answers. And at the end, you'll see a link to the author who will continue the hop and pass it on!
