Happy Book Birthday!

Grimalkins Don't Purr releases today!

It's the second day of fall. The weather here is rainy and blustery, but it's always sunny in the Nether! That's where everyone's favorite dervish has disappeared to. Kyra will seek help from her father to find him. The only snag in that plan is that Daddy's dead. So she'll have to find a new furry and fanged guide.

Read an excerpt and order it now on the GRIMALKINS PAGE.

For the many people waiting for print copies, paperbacks and hardcovers are now live on Amazon. Other buying options will be available soon. The audiobook will go into production when Book 3 has been recorded.


I Need Your Input

I took a week off to visit with my mother in August and then went camping for a weekend. It was a wonderful relaxing time, but it meant that I had a 3-week marathon of editing to get ready for publishing. It was grueling, but I made it! Grimalkins Don't Purr is officially off to the proofreader. Launch day is September 23rd! To celebrate, this weekend I'm taking Maggie, my hell hound in training, to the annual puppy plunge at our local outdoor pool. Then on Sunday, my daughter and I are going to goat yoga! I love goats, and this is something I've wanted to do for a while. Can't wait! I suspect there won't be much yoga going on.



In other news, I want to do another contest to celebrate launch day for Grimalkins. However, since I live in Canada, shipping is ridiculously expensive. I would love to do several prizes, but that’s just not possible from here. Also, many people reacted to the little swag items in the last contest. So I was thinking, instead of one large prize of books and gifts, what if I did several smaller prizes? Or maybe one large prize that could ship directly from Amazon?


How to decide? Well, I thought I’d ask you! Here’s a one-question poll:

It won't take more than a minute to respond. Let me know what kind of prize pack you'd like to see next.

Dervishes Don't Dance Audiobook Now Pre-ordering.

What I really like about pre-ordering books is that they miraculously appear on my reader or listening device of choice on launch day. It's always a little surprise that makes me smile. We all need more of those kinds of surprises these days. So pay yourself forward, and pre-order a little surprise for September 23rd.
