My fellow writer and friend, Karen Lenfestey, just put up her latest book, BITTERSWEET HOPE. It’s the final book in her Bittersweet trilogy, and for this week, she’s offering the first book, 5 O’CLOCK SHADOW for free on Amazon, and BITTERSWEET HOPE is only 99 cents. So, if you’re so inclined, you could buy the entire trilogy for only $3.98.
I have to say that BITTERSWEET HOPE is my favorite book she’s written so far. I got to beta read it. I’ve read all of her books, but I flew through this one. The two sisters, Claire and Hope, finally find the happy-ever-afters they SO deserve. Of course, being women’s fiction and a Karen Lenfestey novel, they have to jump through more than their fair share of hoops to get there. And this time, one of those hurdles is a disturbed young stalker. The scenes inside this girl’s mind paint a fascinating journey that spirals out of control. The rationalization for her acts builds more and more tension until the final scene. And the ending was perfect (in my opinion).
Anyway, if you like women’s fiction, you might want to check out her book or the entire series.
Here’s the link for her webpage if you want to check out the entire trilogy or more of her books:
Just wanted to let everyone know that The Body in the Attic is only 99 cents from 2/6-2/8 on Amazon.
My friend, John Aubrey, a writer, finished an anthology of folktales/fairytales that aren’t of the typical European variety. The book isn’t long, but the stories are interesting! If you’re a fan of old gods and legends, this might interest you.
I just wanted to let you know that Lyrical Press put my second mystery, The Body in the Wetlands, on Netgalley for reviews, if you’re interested.
I wanted to share the news that Kensington has offered 100 copies of The Body in the Wetlands for a Goodreads giveaway. The contest runs from 1/23 to 2/6, and if you win, they send a copy at the end of the contest, hoping for early reviews of the book.

My daughter, grandson, and his fiancee drove up from Indy this weekend for our Christmas celebration. We’re getting together with my two sisters and cousin to do our big meal and gift exchange. Holly–my daughter–is a nurse and had to work on the real holiday and New Year’s Eve, so we postponed it until everyone could get together. At first, we planned it for Jan. 12, but Holly had to work that weekend, too, to make up for losing two days to strep throat. A friend covered for her when she was sick, so Holly had to return the favor. That means, everyone came this weekend–when Mother Nature decided to dump snow and high winds on us. They came anyway. And Ty and Emily brought their new puppy–who’s adorable. Our poor chihuahua wasn’t sure what to make of her, but he’s decided she’s okay. Our cat ignores her. We’re having a great time–lots of food, lots of catching up, and lots of fun.
Hopefully, highway 69 will be plowed tomorrow when Ty and Emily need to drive home. Holly can stay a day longer. My brain has shut down from writer’s mode to family mode, and it will have to reboot on Tuesday. So this blog is extra short.
But I hope words are flowing for all of you. Happy Writing!
