A 2011 Award Winning Novel At A Great Price For Kindle and Nook – May 10

A young woman’s life is destroyed, she thinks, by her mother’s actions. When she discovers her mother’s letters, she finally finds the truth – but will it be too late? You will experience the power of forgiveness and redemption in the award winning THE LAST LETTER!   

Readers who enjoyed Water for Elephants, Madonnas of Leningrad, and Mary will love THE LAST LETTER. This novel was inspired by the author’s discovery of old family letters, some almost a hundred years old, depicting love in bloom and love lost. We picture Kate Winslet as the main character. 

This discounted eBook is also available on Nook, May 10th for $0.99.  


KATHLEEN SHOOP

I hope readers feel connected to my books because I try to create characters that are layered and interesting even if not always likable. I know that bothers some readers, but for me, that sliver of awfulness in a character makes him/her worth reading about. I love to write and it’s absolutely true that if I’ve met you, some part of you–your appearance, your laugh, the way you flip your hair or listen intently to others–will at some point make it into one of my stories.

Favorite place to write: In my office at home or in coffee shops! I love background noise and at home that means tv (crime shows, Encore channels, Hallmark movies and Lifetime Channel) and in coffee shops, it’s chatter around me of course!

Favorite Food: My favorite food is almost any kind of seafood pasta dish…well, anything tasty, really!

Favorite TV Show: My favorite TV show to watch and not use as background noise is Shameless…and Girls…and Boardwalk Empire…and Parenthood…oh well, I love a lot of shows.

He is called to make a choice and the future of the world rests upon his decision. PROTECTOR is an epic, high fantasy novel with strong romantic undertones. It is first book of an exciting fantasy series – Anniversary of the Veil. 
 

Readers who love George RR Martin and Brandon Sanderson will enjoy PROTECTOR. This book is based on the idea of twins souls who spend their lives searching for each other. In the world the author created, the energy released during such a joining is used to alter the state of things, for better or worse.

This discounted eBook is available on Kindle, Nook and Apple for $2.99 on May 10. 

EXCERPT:

No roses bloomed once the snows began to fall. Kae now remembered the ones his father would leave on the kitchen table for his mother to find in the morning, after he had already gone into the Forest of the Dead. He’d make them out of cloth. He’d once shown Kae how to do so. ‘He does it so I will not forget him, should he not return,’ his mother had told him, with tears already at the edges of her eyes. Wolves ruled the Forest once the snows covered the ground, not all who went in came back. The dead could be found at the end of the Forest. Kae imagined the river flowing peacefully in its thickly forested bank. It carried away the vision of his mother, carried away the smell of white winter roses. No good came of wishing for what could never be.


VANNA SMYTHE

Vanna Smythe is the author of Protector and Decision Maker, the first two books in the Anniversary of the Veil fantasy series. She has been writing creatively since her early teens, though one could say her creative writing efforts started long before that. While still in kindergarten, she once tore up a library book to make alphabet soup, and has been fascinated with what words can do, the pictures and worlds they can create, ever since. Book Three of the Anniversary of the Veil series, is due out in Summer, 2013.

Favorite Food: My favorite food is pizza.

Favorite Place to Write: I love to write in the garden by my house and I tend to concentrate best when listening to the sounds of nature.

Favorite TV Show: I don’t have a favorite TV show, though Merlin, Game of Thrones and Agatha Christie’s Poirot are at the top of the list.

EXCERPT:

Ruby watched the south entrance of the Victoria Clave market from the inside of an abandoned arcade until dawn came up on it, and it slouched into life. The Gitjihng moved into place at the market entrance like black burn marks against the corrugated steel walls, and what had been menace had shifted into terror. Their guns flashed with false promises. Their decay had been from the inside out, a profound kind of hypocrisy Ruby was beginning to understand the contours of. The line began for registration, rickshaws and individual vendors, carts filled with handmade goods and things found in the waste. A corpse lay in a pile of garbage at the corner of the market, in front of what had once been a stim pharmacy, and people walked by it, deliberately unseeing. She watched and waited for the Swede, for the Korean girl, but they didn’t come. She would have to go in after them.
