This week, in place of one of my usual blog posts I’m helping announce the kickoff of the second annual #30Authors event. Ever wonder what some of your favorite authors are reading? Sure you have. Here is your chance to get to know some fantastic writers as well as some amazing book bloggers. Last year’s event was a huge success and even resulted in a published anthology titled Legacy. Allison at The Book Wheel created the event and describes it as follows:
#30Authors takes place annually during the month of September and has been met with incredible support and success in the literary community. In the six months following its inaugural event, the concept was published as an anthology (Legacy: An Anthology) and has remained active on social media. Authors who contributed in the first year include Celeste Ng (Amazon Editor’s Pick), Cynthia Bond (Oprah Book Club Pick 2.0), and Rene Denfeld (Powell’s Books Top 5 Books of the Year).

So, check out this event. Yours truly is seventh out of the 30, so you’ll want to see which book I chose to review. Last year I reviewed the anthology FaceOff but this year I went with a more traditional novel. Spoiler alert: It involves the death of a beloved childhood character… kind of. But, not really. Stay tuned to find out.
J.J. Hensley is the author of RESOLVE, which is set against the backdrop of the Pittsburgh Marathon, Measure Twice, and other works. Hensley is a former police officer and former Special Agent with the U.S. Secret Service.
An addict is killing Pittsburgh city officials, but Homicide Detective Jackson Channing has his own addiction.
In the Pittsburgh Marathon, more than 18,000 people will participate. 4,500 people will attempt to cover the full 26.2 miles. Over 200 of the participants will quit, realizing it just wasn’t their day. More than 100 will get injured and require medical treatment. One man is going to be murdered. When Dr. Cyprus Keller lines up to start the race, he knows a man is going to die for one simple reason. He’s going to kill him.
And look for my short story FOUR DAYS FOREVER in the LEGACY anthology
