Sneak Peek: Bonnie Rozanski’s “Come Out Tonight”

Today, we get a sneak peek of author Bonnie Rozanski’s novel, Come Out Tonight:

Henry Jackman, a pharmacist’s assistant working in a run-down drugstore in New York City, wakes up one morning to find his girl friend unconscious on his living room rug. Someone has attacked her. He calls an ambulance, and manages to get her to the hospital alive but comatose. There she progresses from coma to vegetative state, never quite becoming conscious… until the day Henry gives her Somnolux, a new-generation sleep aid.

Henry, an insomniac, has himself been taking Somnolux. He has been experiencing blackouts, something he doesn’t quite admit to, not even to himself. There is evidence he’s been doing some strange things in his sleep: women’s underwear turns up in his drawers; sexy women in his bed. Could Henry have attacked his girlfriend himself without any knowledge of the fact?

Come Out Tonight is available for Kindle from Amazon and for Nook from Barnes and Noble. Continue reading “Sneak Peek: Bonnie Rozanski’s “Come Out Tonight””

Meet the Author: Pam Bainbridge-Cowan

Author Pam Bainbridge-Cowan

Pam describes her writing style as very informal and conversational. She is economical with words, using description to place her characters firmly in a setting or environment and to set the mood, but she uses dialogue to move the story forward. Pam says, “My writing is rather dark, with flashes of humor, sarcasm and irony. My characters are frequently from the fringe, rather than the mainstream of society, and tend to be Byronic, usually flawed and self-destructive.”

Pam says most of her stories and books are based on some true fact or story that intrigued her. “For instance, I once read a letter sent to a county office from an angry, older gentleman who had been pulled over for driving in the mountains, in icy conditions, without tire chains. They were also conducting a drunken driving sweep at the time. The breathalyzer had quit working so one of the officers took him into town to be tested, leaving his wife with their truck and RV at the side of the road in a snowstorm. He passed the test and was released and had to find a ride back. He later learned that because of the DUI arrest, even though he was not charged, he had to post a bond each time he took his commercial fishing ship into Canadian waters.” Yeah, I remember that. Bad night. Continue reading “Meet the Author: Pam Bainbridge-Cowan”
