Drawing on the past...

Have you checked out Kindle Books and Tips yet?

"The Kindle Books and Tips blog has a simple purpose to provide an interactive blog where you will receive tips to maximize your Kindle experience, author interviews, articles from the author’s take on the eBook world, links to special and discounted Kindle books, and the heads-up on the numerous books, short stories, and more available to read (and listen to) on your Kindle for no charge from numerous sites in addition to Amazon."

Every week they have a "Meet the Author" feature. This week it's yours truly. I really wanted to make this different from other posts I've done, so this one includes information about me that I've never revealed in public before but that I draw on in my writing.

On My Bookshelf: Inheritance by Kate Loveday

InheritanceInheritance by Kate Loveday
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Cassie kicked at the parched earth with the toe of her boot. Spurts of dust flew up. ‘It seems hard to believe that this is usually covered with green feed. With everything so dry I guess we’re lucky to have as many calves as we’ve had this year.’” –Inheritance

Set in Far Northern Australia, Inheritance is an engaging romantic mystery. It is wonderfully sensory with a rich sense of place – it couldn’t be set anywhere but Australia – with a cast of interesting and well-drawn characters. Cassandra Taylor, Inheritance’s heroine is no meek country girl able to be pushed around. More than anything, this story is about her journey from girl to woman.

Highly recommended. I look forward to reading more from Kate Loveday.

New Book Covers

Sleight Malice and Brittle Shadows have new covers more in keeping with my other titles. I really like them. I'd love to hear your thoughts.
