Our local Animal Shelter paired up with a professional photographer for a fund raiser. Of course I couldn’t pass up supporting my local shelter. So, please bear with me as I show off the results. And no, I’m not fond of having my picture taken, but I seldom am in the picture with my furry babies unless it’s at a dog show.
Slippers, on the left, has a big personality as you can see. She’s nine months old here. Katie, on the right, is my sensitive sweetie. She turned 3 years in October.
Just in time for the holidays! THE SCARECROW & MS. MOON is available in Nook, PDF, Sony, and Palm as well as Kindle and several other formats. It’s fun! It’s a quick read! It’s one of my favorites! Make it one of yours!!
WOW! I barely uploaded No Place Like Home: Book 2 of the St. John Sibling Series to Kindle and it’s already available in formats for Nook, Sony, PDF, Palm, and a number of others! I’m hearing Donna Summer singing in my head,”I’m so excited!”
Also be on the lookout for Book 1 of the series, Taming Tess!
I’m so excited! The second book in the St. John Sibling Series is out! NO PLACE LIKE HOME is now available in digital format from Amazon.com. This story is so sweet and tender, I fell in love with it all over again while doing the final edits.
Hero Sam is wonderfully wounded, likening himself to the Tin Man of Oz fame. That was the guy who went to Oz to get a heart, not realizing he had one all along. All together now. Aaaah.
Of all the heroes who’ve chosen me to tell their stories, Sam definitely ranks among my favorites.
Slippers graduated from her first agility class. She’s picture second from left. She was far from being the star of her class, taking five weeks out of the eight week course to finally conquer the teeter-totter and elevated dog. But, she rode to every class with great anticipation and loved greeting her fellow classmates. Then there were the training treats. Hey, she’s only nine months old. What can a human expect.
Want to know what inspired the first two stories in my first series, The St. John Sibling Series? What Shakespeare story inspired Taming Tess? Gee, that doesn’t seem hard to figure out. But, what favorite eatery of mine prompted me to write No Place Like Home? Who are the St. John Siblings and what makes their stories worthy of reading? For the answers to these questions and many more, check out the interview I gave the Jewels of the Quill. http://www.angelfire.com/stars4/kswiesner/jewelsofthequill2.html#spotlight
But here’s a sneak peek. “No Place Like Home’s” Dixie Rae (St. John) Carrington hasn’t let widowhood, the loss of her restaurant, and a custody battle for her son turn her outlook on life sour, thanks in good part to the support of her loving family. This makes her the perfect mate for Sam Ryan, a man who’s been running from conflict all his life, and for good reason. Abandoned by his father, neglected by his mother, and raised by an uncle he couldn’t please, he’s never known the sweet support of a real family. What Dixie, her preschool son, and extended family will teach Sam is the family he covets doesn’t have to be related by blood—that he hasn’t been running away all his life but, rather, searching for the right family for him.
