Please welcome Amazon bestselling author Ashley Fontainne to Diapers, Bookmarks, and Pipedreams. She’s here to announce the release of her third book in the Eviscerating the Snake Series. Welcome Ashley!
Sometimes…Revenge Is A B$%#& – 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.
I would like to thank the fantastic team at Blue Harvest Creative for their outstanding work in creating the covers, interiors and eBooks for all three books in this series.
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.

About Ashley Fontainne
International bestselling author Ashley Fontainne is an avid reader of mostly the classics. Ashley became a fan of the written word in her youth, starting with the Nancy Drew mystery series. Stories that immerse the reader deep into the human psyche and the monsters that lurk within us are her favorite reads.
Her muse for penning this series was The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas. The revenge on all those who hurt and betrayed Edmond Dantes and the incredible rollercoaster ride his journey takes you on intrigued her. Ashley’s love for this book is what sparked her desire to write her debut novel, Accountable to None, the first book in the trilogy Eviscerating the Snake. With a modern setting to the tale, Ashley delves into the lengths a person is willing to go when they seek personal justice for heinous acts perpetrated upon them. The second novel in the series, Zero Balance, focuses on the cost and reciprocal cycle that obtaining revenge has on the seeker. For once the cycle starts, where does it end? How far will the tendrils of revenge expand? Adjusting Journal Entries, the third in the series, answers that question: far and wide.
Born and raised in California, Ashley now calls Arkansas home with her husband and four children. She also enjoys writing poetry and short stories and recently published Ramblings of a Mad Southern Woman: A Collection of Short Stories and Poetry on Life, Love, Loss and Longing, which is available on Amazon. Ashley is also a supporter of the Joyful Heart Foundation that assists victims of violent crime seeking help and healing, and donates 10% of all yearly book sales to the cause.
