Description: Five women with seemingly nothing in common are found brutally murdered in a townhome outside Washington, DC. Among the many questions surrounding the massacre is what had brought these apparent strangers together only to be killed.

Taking on his first official murder case, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton, USN, believes that if he can uncover the thread connecting the victims, then he can find their murderer.

Before long, the case takes an unexpected turn when Murphy discovers that one of the victims has a connection to his stepmother, Homicide Detective Cameron Gates. One wintry night, over a dozen years before, her first husband, a Pennsylvania State trooper, had been run down while working a night shift on the turnpike.

Where a murder that happens thirteen years before and what happen to that person come to light. Who is behind it all? Military seems to be hiding something that they seem not to want to come out. You will never be able to figure it out until it all revealed at the end.

Asia New Wings

Book Title: Asia New Wings
Author: Clifton & Michellle Cottom
Genres: Non Fiction, Self help, Memoir,
Publisher:
Published Date:
Buy the book: Amazon ~ Barnes & Noble
Disclimer: I recieved this book from +Laura Fabiani iRead Book Tours for a book tour and to give my honesty review
Discription: Asia Cottom lived eleven short years on this earth. Her tragic death on Flight #77 on 9/11 is forever etched in the hearts of the countless people who loved her. But her wise and influential life, her positive attitude, and profound faith in God are her true legacy.

You may love God with all your heart and soul, yet not understand what He is doing. In Asia’s New Wings, Clifton and Dr. Michelle Cottom, along with family and friends, walk beside you, sharing their thoughts and offering compassion to help you come to a place of acceptance, when trying to make sense of suffering great loss. The people in this book have learned to come to terms with what God allows, and are now in a place where they can help heal others. If you have gone—or are going through—the “valley of despair,” you will find comfort and empathy from those who care. You will also find hope and the strength to move forward as you rediscover your life.

What Asia's parents and all those who loved her went through, healed from, and learned will bring comfort and relief to those who travel down the road of loss. Reading and experiencing Asia's story will truly bring healing and life to all who turn these pages.

This is a lovely book. It shows how her parents dealt with their little girls death. It shows the process of how each person who loved Asia began healing.

It also helps other parents who had to deal with loss. What a way to celebrate a child's life in the best way. It talks about the foundation they created in her name.

It references Asia saying's though out the book. It surely amazing that what Asia said to her parents or mother came true as Asia had known she be leaving this world.

I really enjoyed it. It sure has the history of that day. It tells the story of September 11, 2001. It is told in a way a parent loses someone special. The children are more loss to any parents and this book is meant to help them deal with it. 


Clifton and Michelle Cottom live in Prince George’s County, Maryland and they have one son, Isiah. The Cottoms are the co-founders and executive board members of the Asia SiVon Cottom (ASC) Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Guest Post with Clifton and Michelle Cottoms

Here is my Guest post with Clifton and Michelle Cottoms. They are the author of Asia's New Wings. This was the hardest to come put with Non Fiction questions for them in an Interview. So I asked to put it as a Guest Post to them. Thesere were the only Questions I could come up with for them to answer. They are here though a book tour +Laura Fabiani iRead Book Tours. Let welcome to Nighttime Reading Center.

1. What inspired you to write your little girl's story?
Asia’s New Wings: The Untold Story of a Young Girl Lost on 9/11 is a story about Asia’s life, passion, legacy and how to move on after experiencing lost on a world-wide platform. The book describes how a family turns the most tragic situation in our lives into an opportunity to immortalize Asia and educate a nation. We were motivated to write the book because many people keep telling us that we needed to share Asia’s story and many had no idea children were lost during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Based on the feedback we have received the book seems to help people with their grief even if it’s not the grief of losing a child. We’ve been told that our strength is an example for others. Writing this book has helped us continue to heal and achieve receive some level of closure. We can better share Asia’s story with a peace which is hard to describe.


2. Did this book give you some peace and or closure?
We live each day one at a time. Losing a child is not normal so there will never be a “new normal” We live each day as it comes and we count our blessings. We keep Asia with us alive and well in our hearts, minds and our soul. We talk about her often and daily. It is not painful, it is thoughtful and on purpose Our memories are full of joy not the pain and sting of death.

3. What is your message to parents who have lost a child in death?
The bible says a peace that surpasses all understanding. We have learned to accept what God allows rather we like it or not. We have learned how to live on. We did not write the book for ourselves but to bring recognition to the ASC Memorial Scholarship Fund so that we could send more people to college. However we are fortunate that our accomplishments and the awareness from our book Asia’s New Wings have garnered us; we are the proud recipients of the 1st Readers Legacy Philanthropy Award.


Thanks and I hope you stop by once more

Nighttime Reading Center Interview, Author Interview
Describe your book in 20 words or less.

Five women, strangers to each other, are murdered. Murphy Thornton searches for the thread connecting them to find their murderer.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

As with most of my books, the inspiration came from a variety of different sources. I weaved them all together to make one unique plotline. There have been numerous murder mysteries dealing with many victims, all strangers, murdered by the same killer. Then comes the question, “What common factor made the killer choose these victims?” I decided to turn that plotline on it’s head in Kill and Run. These five women, strangers to each other, come together to meet in secret, only to be murdered. In order to identify their killer, Lieutenant Murphy Thornton, USN, must uncover the common thread that brought them together.

How important are names to you in your book(s)? Do you choose the names based on liking the way it sounds or the meaning? Do you use any resources in assisting you to choose the names?

Names are very important. I’ve changed character names as late as the proofing stage of a book. Each one of us have different impressions of names based on our own personal experiences, which are completely unique to us. For example, when growing up, I went to school with a twerp named Eric. Now, I can’t name a character Eric without making him a twerp. It’s just the image that pops into my mind when I hear that name.

Both the meaning and sound of the name are important. Admittedly, I do have a lot of characters in my complex mysteries. It’s a necessity. Therefore, I have to be careful to make each character’s name distinct and different from the other characters so that it can be more easily identifiable. I try very hard, and it is an unspoken rule in writing, to not have more than one character whose name begins with the same first letter. Like I said, I try. In Kill and Run, I have Joshua and Jessica. However, one is male and one is female. Also, these characters originated in two different series. When I created them, I had no intention of them appearing in the same book.

Sometimes, a name will just hit me while creating a character. That name goes hand in hand with who they are. For example, the book I am working on now, Cancelled Vows, the eleventh Mac Faraday Mystery, I introduce a character whose name popped out at me. Once it hit me, the name alone made her whole character come to life.

Other times, I have to work at it. One source I use is the Social Security Administration website. Since I know approximately, if not exactly, what year the character was born, I’ll do a search of the most popular names for boys or girls born in that year. I can even narrow the search to what were the most popular names for boys or girls in a particular state.

In Kill and Run, I introduce a character who was born in Iraq. His family narrowly escaped Iraq after converting to Christianity. For his name, I searched the Internet for Islamic names and their meanings. Tawkeel means “to trust in God,” which was most appropriate for his character.

Which of your characters (in this book) is your favorite and Why?

It is a complete toss-up between Murphy and Jessica, the Thorny Rose detectives. I had created them separately in two different series. Murphy’s character originated as a teenager in my very first book, A Small Case of Murder, the Joshua Thornton Mysteries. I created Jessica in the Mac Faraday Mysteries, and she made a brief appearance in Old Loves Die Hard.

Both characters were already fully developed. But, when I brought them together in Three Days to Forever, they played off each other so well. They complement each other. Murphy is a disciplined military officer. An heiress, Jessica is a former party girl and has a masters from William and Mary. She is planning to go to med school for a doctorate on psychiatry.

I love Murphy’s passion about solving these murders and protecting those who he loves—his thirst for justice. But I also love Jessica’s spunky nature.

Was there a certain scene in this book that was harder for you to write than others?

The sex scenes. Correction: The LOVE scenes between Murphy and Jessica. There is a difference. My reading audience has made it known that they love how clean my books are. No foul language, graphic violence, or explicit sex scenes. I push the envelope a little bit with the Thorny Rose Mysteries. Murphy and Jessica are younger. They are newlyweds. Plus, they live in Washington, DC—the big city where sex, murder, and mayhem run rampant.

It would be unrealistic to have this young vibrant couple not express their love for each other in a physical manner. But, keeping my readers in mind, not to mention my own comfort level, I believe those scene did come off as loving and romantic without the shock value.

If you could cast your characters in the Hollywood adaptation of your book, who would play your characters?

I’ve been asked this question before and I really don’t have any idea. Sorry.

What was your favorite part to write and why?

The action scenes during the climax. Without giving away any spoilers, all I can say is that readers will be twice as thrilled with two action sequences happening simultaneously—one including a rescue scene on a motorcycle.

If you didn't like writing books, what would you do for a living?

I’d be a full-time housewife, mother, and beast-master to three dogs. Wait! I am a full-time housewife, mother, and beast-master to three dogs. I guess if I wasn’t writing, I would be spending more time as a housewife, mother, and beast-master to three dogs.​ ​

What writing advice do you have for other aspiring authors?

Never give up!

Do you read your reviews? Do you respond to them, good or bad? Do you have any advice on how to deal with the bad?

Yes, I do read my reviews, but I keep in mind that they are subjective—good or bad. I never respond to them, except to thank the actual reviewers who I have sent my books to for that purpose—even if they are bad. Luckily, I have not had an actual book reviewer post a negative review for any of my books. Or rather, if one has, I haven’t seen it. If that were to happen, my rule is to never engage in a dialogue with the reviewer—telling them where they are wrong, etc. Their review is their opinion and they are entitled to their opinion. Nothing I say will change their mind.

As for bad reviews from readers on Amazon or Goodreads or those other sites, if I see the review, I will start to read it. If it is good, I will finish reading it. If I see that the review is a sarcastic, nasty commentary, then I will stop reading without finishing the review. It only takes the rating and a few words to spot that. Those type of readers and reviewers are not going to offer any constructive criticism that will help me with my writing—therefore they are not worth my time or attention in reading their comments.

My advice to writers about bad reviews: Reviews are necessary to success as an author. I was flabbergasted a few years ago when I met a local author who considers himself an authority on publishing who said he “never lets strangers review my books.” Excuse me! If your books are made public, then you can’t stop strangers from reviewing your books. Book reviews are free publicity.

Bad reviews, believe it or not, can help your book sales. I teach writing and publishing in community education. In one class, we discussed an article I had found on the Internet about nasty reviewer. The blogger was saying that generally, readers are suspicious of books on Amazon that only have 5-star ratings—nothing lower. They suspect that those 5-star reviews are from family and friends—not actual readers. When I brought this up in class, the students, all big readers, totally agreed! Three-two-one stars can help in your book sales!

Another thing to keep in mind, dear writers: Reviews are subjective. They are the reader’s opinion! Not everyone feels and sees things the same.

Think of it this way. I’m a mom. I have a husband and a teenaged son. I’m also a gourmet cook. One of my favorite meals is Chicken Marsala. I will spend hours in the kitchen cooking it, along with pasta, parmesan tomatoes, and garlic bread—the works! But, when I set everything on the table and we sit down to eat this fabulous meal that makes my husband swoon with love, my son will turn up his nose at it.

Is my son wrong for not loving it? Does my Chicken Marsala stink? Is my husband stupid for loving it? No, none of that. It’s just that Chicken Marsala is not my son’s cup of tea.

It is the same with books and reviewers.

What are you working on now? What is your next project?
Right now, I am working on the eleventh Mac Faraday Mystery, Cancelled Vows. In this mystery, David O’Callaghan and Chelsea Adams’ wedding plans collide with one tiny little obstacle. David is already married … and didn’t know it! Now, with less than a week before his wedding day, David rushes off to get his wife to sign divorce papers. When she ends up murdered, it is up to David’s best man, Mac Faraday, and Gnarly, K9-in-waiting, to sort through the clues to get David to the church in time!

Bonus Question: Characters often find themselves in situations they aren't sure they can get themselves out of. When was the last time you found yourself in a situation that was hard to get out of and what did you do?


Boy, that’s a toughie! Luckily, I have never been in a life and death situation like my characters get into. The toughest situation I can come up with is when I had writers block for a full year. I was between drafts of It’s Murder, My Son, the first Mac Faraday Mystery. After a year of staring at the computer screen, I walked away, which was tough. Up until then, my whole existence, my identity, was that of being a writer. But, I needed to step back and re-examine my life, my goals, and who I was from a different angle.

A month later, I was back at the laptop and rewrote It’s Murder, My Son, which became my most successful book. That was what broke me through as an author.
Sometimes, I will have my characters do that in my murder mysteries. When they come up against a wall in solving their cases, they will step away, go back to the very beginning, and approach the case from a different angle.

Thank you for stoping by Nighttime Reading Center, Lauren. I hope to see you around here. I hope you stop by once in awhile. I started to laugh with some of the answers. I am happy and will and hope to catch up with your books and in these series "The Thorney Rose Mystery" "The Mac Faraday Mysteries", "The Joshua Thorton Mystery" and of the other ones that come with these.
