A Boy Named Rabbit_kindle cover2

A Boy Named Rabbit, Book 2 in my Wake-Robin Ridge series is available as a FREE download today, tomorrow, and Sunday! (February 27, 28, and March 1). If you’ve already read Wake-Robin Ridge, now’s your chance to get A Boy Named Rabbit, for free.

“Evil’s comin’, boy…comin’ fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies, and hair like a crow’s wing. He’s the one you gotta find.”

The remote mountain wilderness of North Carolina swallowed up the ten-year-old boy as he made his way down from the primitive camp where his grandparents had kept him hidden all his life. His dying grandmother, gifted with The Sight, set him on a quest to find the Good People, and though he is filled with fear and wary of civilization, Rabbit is determined to keep his promise to her. When he crosses paths with Sarah and MacKenzie Cole, neither their lives, nor his, are ever the same again.

The extraordinary little boy called Rabbit has the power to change the world for everyone he meets, and the resourcefulness to save himself from the one person his grandparents had hoped would never find him. His dangerous and bittersweet journey will touch you in unexpected ways, and once you’ve let Rabbit into your heart, you’ll never forget him.”

If you haven’t yet read Book 1, Wake-Robin Ridge, you can download a free Boxed Set that includes both Book 1 and Book 2. It’s a great deal! What can be better than FREE? And what have you got to lose? 🙂

A Boy Named Rabbit Is Out On Kindle!

 

A Boy Named Rabbit_kindle cover2
Now Available on Kindle

Wooohoooo! Finally, in spite of all kinds of obstacles in my way, I was able to upload A Boy Named Rabbit to Kindle last night, and it’s live and available for purchase today!! Those of you who have been asking when it would arrive…it’s here! Lots of launching bells and whistles have fallen by the wayside, due to my long bout with the flu, but no matter. Nothing can make me feel sad today! My third novel, the sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge is out!

If you are one of the ones who read Wake-Robin Ridge and asked if the sequel was coming, you’re in luck. Check it out here! If you haven’t yet read Wake-Robin Ridge, hang in there another day or two, and a boxed set with both books in it will be available at a special, discounted rate, so you can read Book 1 and Book 2 at once. 🙂

A Boy Named Rabbit is very dear to my heart, as it features an extraordinary little boy’s lonely journey through the wilderness on a quest to find the Good People. Rabbit was more fun to write than any character I’ve attempted so far, and his insights on the world (which he has been hidden away from for his entire life) vary from funny to surprisingly profound. I never knew what words were going to come out of Little Rabbit’s mouth until they fell off my fingers and onto the page.

Of course, there’s plenty of drama and danger involved, a few spills and chills, loads of worry from the ever angsty MacKenzie Cole, patient understanding and kindness from Sarah, and plenty of the kind of love only an adorable ten-year-old boy can inspire.  Hope you’ll cheer for him, laugh with him, cry with him, and most of all, never, ever forget him.

Join Rabbit on the journey that begins with his gran’s dying gasps: “Evil’s comin’, Boy…comin’ fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies…an hair like…a crow’s wing. He’ll keep you safe…from bad people. He’s the one…you gotta find.”

I’m Still Standin’!!

(Just Because This Picture Makes Me Smile)

Okay, some of the time, I’m not quite vertical, but by golly, I have survived this latest mutant spawn of the Swine Flu, and I’m here to tell the tale. My first advice…DON’T GET IT!! This is wicked, wicked stuff, and can be fatal for the very young, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. So, avoiding is a good thing! And if you DO get it, for the love of everyone you know, stay home. HOME! Sleeping alone. Washing your hands about a million times a day, and trying not to cough on anyone. AND…if you go from well to sick in about sixty seconds, head straight to your doctor for Tamiflu to try to knock this stuff out. (It only works within the first 48 hours or so). Then pray.

Today is the first day in well over two weeks that I am actually thinking I might be recovering. And I’m SO happy to see that light at the end of the tunnel. I have things to do, stuff to say, and most of all, a brand new book to get published! Yes, A Boy Named Rabbit is now ready to be formatted and sent out into the world, hopefully to reach lots of people and make them smile…or cry. I’m pretty excited about this third novel. It’s a sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge, and I hope readers who enjoyed that one will find a place in their hearts for a little ten-year-old boy, unlike anyone else you’ve ever met. I know he shakes up Sarah and Mac’s life pretty thoroughly, and I hope he’ll have an impact on yours.

Also, I’ve been reading whenever I can, so I have lots of reviews I need to get posted for you. Just finished Lee Child’s latest Jack Reacher story, Personal, and have a few things to say about my beloved Reacher, and about Lee Child’s way with words. I finished what should have been a light fantasy series by Lindsay Buroker, The Emperor’s Edge, but which turned out to pull me in and make me crazy for each succeeding book in series. Also, a review of The Thorn Prince by Mark Lawrence is coming up…truly one of the darkest and most disturbing books I’ve ever read, for so many reasons.

Currently, I’m reading Jennifer Melzer’s latest, Siren, and so far, it’s proving to be very intriguing. That will be on my agenda, too. And I don’t want to forget Karen Yankosky’s wonderfully funny Good Luck With That Thing You’re Doing, a book sure to brighten your spirits and make you laugh out loud.

Last, now that I’ve gotten Rabbit’s story told and into publication mode, I can get back to writing the sequel to Swamp Ghosts. I’m pretty excited about this story, too. The book tells the story of Maggie and Gunn’s best friends, Hunter and Willow, who live in the same little Florida town of Riverbend, but it’s a very different kind of tale than Swamp Ghosts was. Fewer reptiles, for one thing. 🙂 And more romance, with a pretty large helping of human tragedy to complicate things. And of course, humor, because Hunter Painter is nothing if not a weirdy-weird guy, with a very quirky way of looking at things. Hopefully, Hunter will be out this fall.

So that’s all the news from me–the good, the bad, and the unwritten. What’s yours? Anything new in your lives that I need to know about? Let me hear from you. I’ve missed you ALL, and I’m so glad to be back!

Catchin’ Up!

catching-up
Slow But Steady Wins The Race…Right?

Wow, the last few weeks have gone by in a blur, and I’m still far behind, try as I might. My inner tortoise is beating the crap outta that wily hare! I’ve had bad news (an injured back that’s almost well and foot problems that might entail yet another steel pin), good news (my first novel, Wake-Robin Ridge, made the Amazon Top 100 Best Sellers list in Fiction/Ghosts, and just regular news (hangin’ in there pretty well for an ol’ granny like myself).

This week, I’ve gotten a ton of stuff done, even though I’m not caught up yet. I finished my draft of A Boy Named Rabbit (the sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge), and it is now in edit, and hopefully will be released next month. I’m four chapters into Hunter, the sequel to Swamp Ghosts, and on schedule for a release date early next year. My last medical procedures proved I’m still cancer-free, so dancing around about that. Or I would be, if it weren’t for that foot issue mentioned above. My friends and family are all doing well, and my daughter, SIL, and grandbaby, Kaelen, are coming to see us Sunday for a week’s visit. So, Life is good, and I’m a happy camper, looking forward to catching up to that rascally hare any day now.

One of the best things that’s happened is that the marvelous Captain Jeanne Bell, my inspiration for Maggie Devlin’s character in Swamp Ghosts, has said she’d like to do a Meet The Author cruise on her beautiful boat, The Naiad. I hope we are able to make that happen, because, hello? Cruising down the river with a bunch of book lovers? What could be better? Captain Jeanne has also told several local places about my book, and there just might be a few stores who want to carry it in the future, along with a chance or two to do a presentation here and there. Very exciting! Cross your fingers for me that some of these things work out.

My new blog, The Write Stuff, is off to a good start, and I’m hoping it will build membership and participation quickly over the next few months. If you are looking for a very friendly place to hang out with fellow writers, please stop by and follow along with us. We’d love to meet you, share resources with you, and help you promote your work.

In the words of Little Rabbit (from my latest book), “Ain’t that somethin’? Ain’t that just somethin’!”
