Be sure to read BORN TO DIE by Victoria Adder

Eaton Literary Agency proudly announces the publication of BORN TO DIE by Victoria Adder.  Commonwealth Books is the publisher.

What is the big deal about a new regional airport near Atlanta? The big deal is potential big bucks for the land-poor dysfunctional rural Breedlove clan, whose sexpot daughter, Dianna, successfully seduces David Mitchell, the engineer in charge of the project. Two members of the Breedlove family die unexpectedly. Only Eulalie Foster, the family’s elderly black housekeeper, who knows most of their business and all of their secrets, suspects murder.

Eulalie and the local sheriff, “Shooter” Fisher, form a partnership in investigating several sensational and related murders, but will they be able to break through the mystery enshrouding the puzzling murders?

*****“BORN TO DIE by Victoria Adder is one of the best mystery novels I’ve ever read. From first page to last, it’s endlessly entertaining. The colorful characters are strong and maintain the reader’s interest throughout. Buy this book!”

Congratulations to Eaton Literary Agency’s Award Winner, Rhonda Kazmierski

Congratulations to Rhonda Kazmierski, winner of Eaton Literary Agency’s Annual Awards Program, for her novel, SHADOW OF EVIL. The novel is now available on Here is Rhonda’s dedication to SHADOW OF EVIL:


“I would like to dedicate Shadow Of Evil to my Editor and Agent, Richard Lawrence, of Eaton Literary Agency, who was not shy in critiquing my work, and took a rough manuscript and turned it into a work I could be proud of.  Richard not only edited my manuscript, but after it was completed, he made certain it was presented to the right Publisher.  Without Richard, this book would never have come to fruition.”


The reviews are in, and they’re all raves. Here is one example:


“A vividly written and inherently riveting novel by an author with a genuine flair for originality and a thoroughly reader engaging style of narrative storytelling, “Shadow of Evil” by Rhonda W. Kazamierski is unreservedly recommended for personal reading lists, as well as community library Contemporary General Fiction collections.”


Be sure to get your copy of Rhonda Kazmierski’s fine novel, SHADOW OF EVIL.

Synopsis: Senator Jack McKenzie had two beautiful daughters. Bella Eileen was married to David Matthew Wright, their favored son-in-law. Charity Faith had chosen, Abdul Fattah, who was a Muslim and questions remained as to who he was and where his allegiance really lay.

This Senator’s family, and other important guests, including the President of the United States, were gathering at the Wright estate for their annual Christmas festivities. David learned Abdel Fattah was plotting, with a deadly terrorist, Abdelmalik Khan, to sabotage the celebration with an attack on the family, leading to the assassination of President Toley.

Would this Christmas be their last? Or would they even live to see Christmas? It all depended on David, who stood to lose everybody he held dear to his heart. He vowed to use every weapon at his disposal, and would call on all of the training the United States government had provided him. Nobody threatened his family, or his president.

Congratulations to Eaton Literary Agency, a five-star-rated Literary Agency now in their 36th year of being in business.



“Thank you for performing a miracle by having both of my books published so quickly!”



“I wanted to take some time out of my busy schedule between book tours to thank you again for all your hard work in placing my three books and many articles. I can’t believe the success that has come to me because of your efforts, and I know it would never have happened if I hadn’t found you. Thank you for your guidance and for beginning my career.” J. Frank Brumbaugh, MARINE WEATHER FORECASTING, BASIC BOAT MAINTENANCE, MAIL ORDER – STARTING UP, MAKING IT PAY, plus 14 articles.




“Let me thank the Eaton Literary Agency for choosing my novel as the winner of your Annual Awards Program. The money is wonderful and could not have come at a better time. Most of all I appreciate the recognition this prestigious award brings to nine years of my work.” John Tarlton, A WINDOW FACING WEST.




“We’re so impressed with all the help we have gotten from you – first your prestigious award, then with the publication of our nonfiction book.   This award and publication is so appreciated, and it comes at a time when being published is more and more difficult without the right representation.” Jennifer Levasseur, Kevin Rabalais, NOVEL VOICES and THE LANDSCAPE OF DESIRE.



“I always had the dream of becoming a published author but knew it was an impossible dream, since I have dyslexia. You made the impossible possible through your guidance and tireless efforts in my behalf. Thank you so much for the publication of my three stories, all within a few months!” R. J. Bernotus



I can’t thank the Eaton Agency enough for the tireless effort they put into finding the right home for my book. J.S.



“I would like to say that from both my correspondence with you and the conversations that my financial counselor and I have had with your agency, that we are both impressed with your professionalism. You seem to be right on top of things, and my books are in the best of hands.


”There are so many things I could say, but all I will say is thanks so very much for caring. (Another literary agency) never cared this much, nor did (a manuscript service) who handled my first novel without success.”



“Thank you so much for your analysis. I learned more from it than my years of study at USC and Brown Grad school. I wish I’d met you sooner.”



“I just wanted to say thank you for getting me to where I wanted to be in my career as a writer. Best I ever did was have Eaton Literary Agency help me get to where I wanted to be.”
