“Listen, Janet”―Carter rested a hand on the woman’s shoulder―“I think what you’re feeling right now is common. You want Marty’s death to make sense. Your brain is refusing to believe that a simple mistake could lead to such a tragic end for Marty. And I understand that. But he probably became distracted as he walked out into the street. It happens.” “It’s more than that,” she persisted. “Call it intuition, call it whatever you want, but I know in my heart that Marty’s death was not accidental.”
I live with my seventeen year old son in Kittery, Maine. I love to travel, walk, read and eat. I have been writing since I was ten, but wrote my first novel at thirty-eight. I have been many things in my life-time: massage therapist, glass blower, waitress, vagabond, and vacuum salesperson.I believe writing books is my calling– I don’t ever want to be a vacuum salesperson again….

She cautiously took a tiny sip, just enough to wet her lips and the tip of her tongue. The flavor flooded her mouth, and her mind swam with wonderful memories. The taste transformed into that of gigantic popcorn balls the sheriff’s wife down the street made for Halloween trick-or-treaters, accompanied by images of Lyra’s costume—a red, fringed gypsy skirt borrowed from Mom. Next came a pumpkin flavor and vision of holding a cold piece of “punky-pie” in her five-year-old hand. Another swallow returned her experience back to anise. “What is this? How did you know?” “Let me introduce myself.” His grin spread into a smile as his eyes met hers. He took a step closer. “I’m Cullen, Cullen Drake, and I know many things. What I don’t know is what sort of books you like to read.”

One of the greatest challenges in our walk with God is waiting for answers to our heartfelt prayers. This 31-day devotional will walk with you through those challenging times. By the end of the month, you will be confident that God is with you, God loves you, and God wants to answer your prayers.
Those who enjoyed Promises to Speak Over Your Life, Jesus Calling, and 1000 Gifts will like WAITING WITH GOD.
WAITING WITH GOD was inspired by the author’s own struggle with waiting for answered prayers. She turned her bible study and recorded thoughts into this book.
If you’re like me and have tried to do everything on your own, the most difficult decision may be letting go and letting God. What an enormous amount of trust it takes to say, “Okay God, I’ve tried to do it my way, but I’m ready to let go of the reins and turn my life over to you.”

I’ve done everything. Worked on Wall Street, taught overseas, travel extensively, and read voraciously. But the one thing I’ve always wanted to do was write. It’s honestly the best feeling in the world to fulfill a lifelong dream. And after having a lot of careers that didn’t fit, it’s wonderful to sit down at my desk every morning and really enjoy my work.
Favorite Place to Write: Sitting at my desk next to a window with the great view of the mountains, and surrounded by 3 monstrously large, sleeping, Newfoundland dogs.
Favorite Music: Classical
A LAMENT OF MOONLIGHT is a fantasy with a twist of science fiction that captivate you. This is a classic tale of light versus dark, when three young children are plunged into an adventure full of magic, monsters, and danger. They soon discover that they are the harbingers of light and will need to defeat the dark goddess to save their world.
Fans of Rick Riordan, Peirce Anthony, and Mercedes Lackey will enjoy A LAMENT OF MOONLIGHT.
The author was inspired by a warm night in October when he stood outside listening to the wind blow through the trees. He wondered what life would be like in the woods at night, and A LAMENT OF MOONLIGHT was born. A young William Moseley would be perfect for Melvin.
It was the strangest room Abigail had ever seen, and she found it slightly bewildering that her sensible father would even have such a room. It looked more like it belonged in her aunt Matty or uncle Forts house, not in Rorex’s. The window standing in the center of the round table was not the only oddity in the room, but all along the edge of the table was carved strange, blocky symbols like on the door, and still she could not tell what they were. Part of Abigail truly believed that this was a language of some sort, but then another part of her didn’t want to believe that, for it would imply that her father was able to read the language, and that would mean she didn’t know him as well as she thought.
I am a bit of a loner. I live my life off the grid, keeping to myself and inside my own head for the most part. I tend to talk to myself about stories and random ideas that come up. At times I run dialogue while I drive, talking things out as if I am reading them from a book (the reason I just bought a digital recorder). I think people will love my stories because they are so much more than just a fun read, they are an in-depth fantasy based in a well fleshed out fantasy world. I love writing, and I don’t think I could stop if I tried. I have all of these ideas that come to me, and just as many files on my computer for each and every one of those ideas. Writing is something I have to do because the characters won’t leave me alone!
Favorite Food : Pizza
Favorite Place to Write: At the moment I do all of my writing in my bedroom overlooking the woods around my home. It seems a nice place to relax and just be part of the stories I write.
Favorite TV Show: A toss up between Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and The Following.
Neil Gaiman and Ray Bradbury are two of the most famous authors of our time – and for good reason. Both gentlemen have captivated countless readers. When we saw that both authors had books on sale today, we were pretty excited (okay, very excited).
American Gods by Neil Gaiman is an American classic. It’s equal parts mystery, literary, and satire- definitely a book that deserves a special place on your Kindle. Ray Bradbury’s Something Wicked This Way Comes deserves a spot, as well – it’s a dark, fantastic tale of a carnival. It’s a modern Gothic that will freak you out and delight you page after page.
These books are $3.99 each on 4/25.
