What reviewers are saying about FINDERS KEEPERS:

AWARD OF DISTINCTION: EXCEPTIONAL MERIT from Heartstrings Reviews! "Finders Keepers has the "wow!" factor in spades...Quite simply, this is a fascinating futuristic romance. The plot and characterizations are detailed, dynamic and deeply immersive and make this super-charged sci-fi release twice as interesting as anything

This reviewer has come across before...Well-developed and wonderfully imaginative,

Finders Keepers has "exceptional merit" written all over it. Linnea Sinclair is definitely

An author to add to one's auto-buy list. This is one terrific, not-to-be-missed, action-packed sci-fi romance!"

--Cheryl Jeffries for Heartstrings Reviews

Rating: Four and One Half Moons "Ride with Trilby and Rhis on a roller-coaster of political and financial machinations and against an amazing backdrop of life in deep space. Author Sinclair’s prose is tight and intense. You’ll feel as though you are in the cockpit, the ship’s controls in your hands, speeding through space with your hair on fire. I mentioned earlier that this was a Keeper, but I must correct myself. It’s firmly placed on the shelf marked, “Touch this and Die.”

--Brenda, www. MystiqueBooks. com

"Trilby owns her own cheap freighter and works it with a single robot helper, plying the space lanes for whatever work she can find at a time of increasing tension between three empires. Rhis, a Zafharin commander, has escaped from the Sko and literally crashes near where she has been repairing her ship on an uncharted planet (to save docking fees). One thing leads to another, romance blooms, and there's corruption that has to be stopped before a new war breaks out.

Linnea Sinclair's Finder's Keepers (paper from Bantam Spectra) is light romantic fun, from a writer with a lot of promise. "

--Henry Leon Lazarus, Central City's Weekly Press

Five Stars! Winner: Reviewers Choice Award! "Linnea Sinclair takes the reader

For a quite a ride with Finders Keepers. Combining some excellent Sci-Fi with

Passionate romance, Finders Keepers is one book you do not want to miss."

--Debby Guyette, CataRomance Reviews

GABRIEL'S GHOST, a galaxy-busting, suspense-filled space adventure, will be released on October 25, also from Bantam-Spectra, and is available now for preorder through Amazon. com and BarnesandNoble. com.

One Of Myrtle Beach's Top Attractions, Broadway At The Beach, Celebrates 15th Birthday With A Variety Of Entertainment

Largest Entertainment Complex In South Carolina Celebrates Milestone From June 17 Through June 26 With Live Concerts, Lots Of Family Fun, Fireworks And A Massive Cake

Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) June 16, 2010

One of South Carolina's top attractions, Broadway at the Beach, will celebrate its 15th birthday this summer. Special events commemorating the milestone are scheduled for June 17 through June 26, 2010. The weeklong celebration will kick-off with live concerts by Cowboy Mouth and Everclear. To wrap-up the birthday festivities on June 26, the venue will hold a complex-wide birthday party where more than 500 guests will receive complimentary Broadway at the Beach birthday cake.

The 15th Birthday Celebration is the centerpiece of Broadway at the Beach's “Summer of Live Entertainment.” Throughout the summer, guests will be treated to concerts, contests, fireworks, mascot meet-and-greats and more. There will also be two concert series, the 2Thousand10 Concert Series, co-sponsored by Hard Rock Cafe and Celebrity Square, and the “Sprite® Under The Stars” Concert Series.

“It's exciting to see Broadway at the Beach reach its 15th birthday as a vibrant and exciting entertainment option for locals and visitors alike,” said Sherry Leonard, general manager of Broadway at the Beach, “From its first day 15 years ago, Broadway at the Beach has delivered on its promise to be Myrtle Beach's center of fun. We look forward to many more years of bringing the very best in shopping, dining and entertainment to our visitors.”

Fifteen years after evolving from an old pine tree farm into the largest festival entertainment complex in South Carolina, Broadway at the Beach continues to grow with new tenants and attractions. Ron Jon Surf Shop recently celebrated its grand opening. Also, the first half of the “Soar and Explore” attraction, a pirate-themed ropes course managed by WonderWorks, opened in late May as the first ropes course to open in the Myrtle Beach area.

The Rock-n-Roll Cafe & Theater, Myrtle Beach's new concert-style showroom is making its debut at Broadway at the Beach this month, as well as phase two of Soar and Explore, a zip line ride that takes thrill-seekers over the 23-acre Lake Broadway.

In the next few weeks, a unique venue is making Broadway at the Beach its temporary home.

The American Presidential Experience is the largest travelling exhibit of presidential memorabilia in the world. The 10,000-square-foot, non-partisan exhibit celebrates three centuries of presidential history and includes a wide variety of items and activities, including life-size replicas of Air Force One, the Oval Office, a collection of first lady gowns, presidential chairs, presidential panels, talking presidential heads, interactive voting stations and much more.

In addition, construction has begun on WonderWorks, a 29,000-square-foot upside down interactive science museum that is scheduled to open at Broadway at the Beach in the spring of 2011. The museum will feature dozens of hands-on activities for people of all ages.

Over the last 15 years, Broadway at the Beach has received the Myrtle Beach Chamber of Commerce's Business Innovation Award, the S. C. Department of Parks Recreation & Tourism's “Most Outstanding Attraction” award, and the South Carolina Governor's Cup as the state's best travel destination.
