A quick note to let everyone know that the second edition of "Burden of Proof" is now available online via Barnes and Noble. A portion of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross for Haiti.
In addition I thought I'd share some recent press I've received on the novel:
From the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (2/19/2010):
Gallatin Valley resident, Adele Lassiter will be discussing her new thriller "Burden of Proof" in two area book events. Lassiter will read a chapter from her novel at the Bozeman Public Library, 2-4 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 20, and signing copies of the book at Hastings Saturday, March 6.
The novel is set in Washington D.C. and Southwest Montana. Gallatin County locations such as downtown Bozeman, Montana State University, Gallatin Field, The Corral and The Rainbow Ranch are featured. The plot revolves around a fictional biological attack on the U.S. and subsequent government cover-up. It is being published by Lone Mountain Press and distributed via Ingram.
"Burden of Proof" is available locally and online via Amazon.com. A portion of sales will go to the American Red Cross for Haiti Relief.
From WRAL News: Raleigh NC (Jan. 25th 2010)
Raleigh, N.C. — A Raleigh-raised author is donating a portion of the proceeds from her latest novel to the relief effort in Haiti.
Adele Lassiter's "Burden of Proof," a thriller about a biological attack and cover-up in the U.S., is on sale at Raleigh's Quail Ridge Books & Music, at 3522 Wade Ave., and other local stores.
Lassiter pledged to give $1 from the sale of each copy to the American Red Cross to be used for recovery and rebuilding in Haiti after the Jan. 12 earthquake. She hopes to raise $1,000.
From the Billings Gazette: (Feb. 7th 2010)
Montanan writes toxic conspiracy
Bozeman author Adele Lassiter journeys into terror in “Burden of Proof,” her new book about fear and conspiracy.
The U.S. government brands a 2001 mail attack with the toxin Thorax as a biological warfare assault from outside the country. And the incident helps lead America into war in the Mideast.
Six years later, the public tires of war and current leaders. But a group of D.C. power players’ effort to hide details behind the toxin attack runs up against a reporter and others determined to unravel what they see as a conspiracy.
Lone Mountain Press of Bozeman published the thriller. A portion of each book sale will go to the American Red Cross for relief for Haiti.
