Editorial Reviews


Featured: The 10 Best Business Books of 2015, by Wealth Management Magazine "Initial public offerings have rarely been so fraught. Public relations consultant Lynn Baker is at the center of an up-and-coming technology firm just a few weeks away from an IPO. But the IPO is torpedoed by a coordinated campaign of misinformation from mysterious outsiders. If that's not bad enough, company insiders all have secrets that complicate board meetings. The author has done her research about the mechanics of IPOs, the lure of the promise (rarely realized) of incredible wealth, and how easily dreams turn into dross. This novel captures the intensity of the Silicon Valley business world and its arcane financial practices with appealing characters, unrelenting action and depictions of high finance and corporate boardroom dynamics that ring true." John Kador, Wealth Management Magazine

"...a timely fictional page-turner...she can tell a story..." San Jose Mercury News

"Ann Bridges' 'Private Offerings' is a joy ride through the twists and turns of Silicon Valley inventor efforts to sell its technology. The story is both suspenseful in regard to Chinese interests and ambitious ploys, and romantic with character secrets slowly revealed. Short chapters have the reader advancing easily through the story to its conclusion." Michael Fallon, San Jose State University Lecturer

"This is a high-tech tale of international intrigue, populated with promiscuous characters of dubious integrity with plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader's attention to the very end. This new author demystifies Silicon Valley with a story of love, greed and financial shenanigans." George Koo, New America Media, Former US-China Business Consultant

"...Ann Bridges develops her multi-dimensional characters with both nuance and depth. She dances them through the perfectly captured intensity of the Silicon Valley business world. 'Private Offerings' is a compelling read: hard to put down and a pleasure to get back into." Pat Waite, Retired Silicon Valley Corporate Executive, San Jose Political Figure

"An artfully crafted and immensely enjoyable novel that's hard to put down. Ann Bridges draws on her personal experience and insider's view of the world of Silicon Valley and IPOs to bring you intriguing, suspenseful fiction. Plus, she includes a ring of truth about the emerging influence of China on the high-tech, high-finance worlds." Dinah Lin, MBA, Public Speaker, Author

"This is a good read! If you have ever walked the corridors of Silicon Valley, you will have met the characters in this book in conference rooms, at business and technical forums, coffee shops and airports from San Jose to San Francisco. It appears Bridges has captured many closely guarded conversations." Stephen Tritto, Retired Silicon Valley Executive and Award-Winning Author

Book Description

Mixing high finance and sultry romance against the timely backdrops of Silicon Valley and China makes Private Offerings intelligent, sexy fiction, irresistible to both men and women. Add strong characters, each with their own secrets, and the fast pace of a high-profile public offering, and you've got a refreshingly smart page-turner. Ms. Bridges keeps readers guessing until the very end, at which time she seamlessly sets up her sequel, Rare Mettle, slated for release May 2016.
