Sometimes...revenge is a bitch


Sometimes…Revenge Is A Bitch – The Long-Awaited Finale “Adjusting Journal Entries” Is Available Now!


The many facets of revenge are explored in this series. In the first novel, Accountable to None, the heroine experienced numerous life-altering events that set her on a course for revenge. The term revenge is a dish best served cold has never been more accurate. The flawed protagonist waited five years to wield her sword of vengeance and her rewards were sweet and fulfilling.

In the sequel, Zero Balance, the aftereffects of obtaining revenge are explored. Oftentimes while one is plotting and planning the downfall of others by making them accountable for their actions, they can suffer tunnel vision. They don't stop to consider how their actions, even if morally justified, will touch others. The quote by John Milton from Paradise Lost is in the beginning of Zero Balance and speaks this truth:  “Revenge, at first though sweet, Bitter ere long back on it self recoiles;”

The third and final book, Adjusting Journal Entries, touches upon the depth of madness that anger and pain can drive someone to. How much emotional pain and heartache can one human being endure before their sanity breaks and they become a killer?

Revenge is a normal human response to physical and mental pain. I would imagine that most of you reading this have, at one time or another, experienced a moment where you wanted to make someone pay for the pain they caused you. The players in this series do just that--they live out that dark fantasy. Unfortunately, the repercussions are tremendous. 

I invite you to explore the world of revenge in this series.

All books are available in eBook and print book on both Amazon US and Amazon UK.

Synopsis:

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. But when it comes to human emotions, the reaction is never equal. No one understands this lesson better than the partners at the prestigious accounting firm of Winscott & Associates.

Greed, power, money and sex left six people dead and four in the hospital…

Audra Tanner never realized how far and deep the ripple she created in her revenge pool would extend. Now as the dust settles on the explosion that rocked not only her life, but the lives of countless others, Audra must fight to gain control over her life.
Because others are out to end it.

What People Are Saying About Adjusting Journal Entries...

“I just finished reading Ashley Fontainne’s Adjusting Journal Entries and was I pleasantly surprised! I am not sure what genre to place it in: Legal thriller? Psychological thriller? Mind blowing ass kicking thriller? They all apply. Five stars is an understatement. Damn good reading!”
– Zach Fortier, bestselling author –

Ms. Fontainne is an excellent writer and excels at creating tenuous plots with sudden new sub-plots that take the reader by surprise. For those readers who enjoy mysteries, intrigue, thrills and danger, I heartily recommend this story.
– Joan Adamak, Amazon reviewer –

Oh what a tangled web Ashley Fontainne weaves! The attention to detail throughout the series is astounding, leading up to an intense and insane conclusion. Nothing happens by chance or coincidence...everything that happens is tied together with a great big action-packed bow...Fontainne is an undeniable talent and is...a force to be reckoned with in the publishing world.
– Charlotte Foreman, reviewer for BestChickLit.com –

Nothing short of mind blowing. Nothing is predictable – that is what makes this series awesome. The story twists and leaves you shocked and on tenterhooks... Ashley Fontainne has created three dimensional characters, some you love, others you really love to hate. They have an impact on you, and even after you turn the last page and you know your time with them has come to an end, they live on inside you.
– author Lindsay Anne Kendal  –

Fontainne...has a brilliant way of bringing to life the twisted psyches of her antagonists and she does it again in Adjusting Journal Entries. Fontainne has the unique ability to juggle several themes throughout her books as she artfully weaves them together, like a beautifully wrapped present...this last book will not disappoint.
– author Joanna Lee Doster –

Synopsis:

What if the unspeakable happened to you? Would you fantasize about seeking personal vengeance? How far would you go...and how much would you sacrifice to hold those responsible that believe they are accountable to none?

Welcome to the prestigious accounting firm of Winscott & Associates. Welcome to Audra Tanner's personal hell. She had heard the rumors about her employer. The whispered secrets. But she had thrown herself into work to escape the pain of her miscarriage and demise of her marriage. Idealistic, she thought if she worked hard she would be rewarded. She thought wrong.

Savagely initiated into the brutal underbelly of the firm, Audra learns too late that the rumors are true. Now after five years of careful plotting, Audra is ready to push the wheels of justice in motion. Her goal of retribution has turned into an obsession and she will stop at nothing until everyone responsible pays. Will revenge set her free or is Audra's quest for personal justice only the beginning?

What People Are Saying About Accountable to None...

"...I truly enjoyed it and recommend it to all who enjoy a fast, intriguing and entertaining story with a little mystery thrown in for good measure."  - Midwest Book Reviews Senior Reviewer and author Joan A. Adamak

"...you are grabbed hook, line and sinker into the story as the book becomes an almost compulsive read."  - Charlotte Foreman, reviewer for BestChickLit.com

"...this is now one of my favorite books of all time...even after you finish, it doesn't let go. It stays with you." - author Lindsay Anne Kendel

Several wonderful bloggers are hosting me to help with the re-release party. Numerous questions were asked and my fingers are STILL bleeding from answering them all, so please take a moment to visit these great blogs and read some of my answers. And don't forget to register for a chance to win one of two signed copies of Accountable to None.

Before I go, I want to thank the incredible team at Blue Harvest Creative for all of their hard work. They took my vision and ran amok, then brought me back something astounding that far exceeded my expectations! Their professionalism and creative design capabilities left me stunned and in shock...which doesn't happen to this rambling mad southern woman often. They didn't just throw a few ideas in my direction, hoping I would pick one. They asked to read the book first to absorb the full experience of the story, which gave them the insight needed to create this amazing cover. What they presented to me is polished perfection that is worthy enough to not only stand out but take center stage on any bookshelf in the world. It is more than eye-catching and could easily be the poster for a movie.

When I created the book trailer, I used the picture of the woman with the green eyes and the hand of silence covering her mouth because it is a powerful image. So, when the first round of potential covers arrived in my inbox, imagine my surprise when I noticed the same pair of eyes graced one of the concept covers! And no one at Blue Harvest Creative had watched the video. Why is that important, you ask? To me it proved that the design team not only read the book but understood the concepts and my vision. It is rare that you will find such dedication and commitment to achieving such high standards.

If you want to take your work to the next level and are looking for a team that will work with you from start to finish, then contact them at the link above. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!
