If I Were a Mobster Blogfest

Today, I’m participating in Chrys Fey’s If I Were a Mobster Blogfest. She decided to do a blogfest to celebrate the release of her latest novella, 30 Seconds Before. I thought this sounded like fun and it was also a great opportunity to practice character creation. Here is my mobster:

Mobster Name: Joanie Fiotta

Rank: The hacker/undercover agent

Crime Zone: Orlando, Florida

Look/Disguise: Operating from the shadows and a master of disguise, Joanie can create any identity she wants for herself and her partners.

Weapon of Choice: Computer

Mobster Vehicle: The most technologically-advanced vehicle available, like the Batmobile, except less obvious.

What She’s Known For: She is able to hack into complex systems and create new identities. She can supply passports and get her cohorts wherever they need to go, including overseas locations. She also excels at undercover field work because of her keen observation skills.

Catch Phrase: “Don’t worry boys, I can hack this!”

            I read Chrys Fey's 30 Seconds and I liked it. It was action-packed and had some interesting twists and turns. And, guess what? She has it on sale for 99 cents until Nov. 4! Now, I'm turning this post over to Chrys:


Blake Herro is a cop in the Cleveland Police Force. Ever since he was a child he wanted to do right by the city he loved by cleaning up the streets and protecting its citizens. Red, a notorious mobster, has other plans.

On a bitter December night, ten police officers are drawn into a trap and killed by Red’s followers. Blake wants to bring down the Mob to avenge his fallen brothers and to prevent other cops from being murdered. Except the only way he can do that is by infiltrating the Mob.

Every minute he’s with these mobsters he’s in danger. Around every corner lies the threat of coming face to face with a gun. Will he make it out of the Mob alive or will he be their next victim?


To celebrate, 30 Seconds, the follow up story, is on sale for 99 cents!

Sale Oct. 21st – Nov. 4th

Now please hop around to the other participants:


  1. You have a good mobster profile, cute one! Chrys' book sounds good.


  2. Three Mobs so far in the Central Florida area. I envision a lot of Mob wars. *gulp*

    Your skills would certainly come in handy, though.

    Thank you so much for participating in my Mobfest! :)

  3. Computer hacking? Now that has some potential. Could your mob hack my book into an acceptance by a major publishing company?

  4. I'm getting the sense that most of the mobsters come from Florida!

  5. LOL, to LEE--Yes there are a lot of us in Florida.

    Great catch phrase. Loved your profile.

  6. Uh oh. I know what you were doing this morning...

  7. Hacking skills are would be very valuable to the mob. To anyone, for that matter :) Love the catch phrase.

  8. My mob family needs a sit down with your family so we can combine skills. We can use someone with hacking skills. We're old school and need to get caught up in the new world. With WikiLeaks and all that going on we need new skills. I never really considered how important something like hacking skills would be for the mob. Great mobster profile. You nailed it. Congrats to Chrys on her new book and I've had fun with this blogfest.

  9. Great idea with all the technology!
    We need that today!


  10. Can do a lot of damage behind the scenes. A great cover for these times.
    sherry @ fundinmental

  11. Woot, woot! Now we've got our hacker. Here's to the Florida crime lords!


Thank you for stopping by! Please feel free to leave a comment and I will visit you back :)
