Tis the Season Reading: Indie Children’s Book

Yahoo photo smallerI “met” Barbara Ann Derksen through social media and have been impressed again and again with how professional and friendly an independent author she is. So when I discovered her Christmas children’s book, I had to reach out to see if she would like to participate in my blog series.

Of course she wanted to participate, AND she’s contributing a free copy for my Tis the Season Reading Giveaway launching this weekend. She is definitely one author hoping to hear from you; just check out her links to connect.

So without further ado, I present “Scruffles Finds a Home”. Here’s the gist:

Scruffles, a tiny field mouse, seeks warmth from the winter chills inside a large, red brick building. Once inside she encounters a number of characters whom she discovers are inanimate but … she also is chased by a large man in a red suit. What does he want with her? She scurries hither and yon but eventually he catches up. Find out what happens next in Scruffles Finds a Home.
What might motivate an author like Ms. Derksen? Check out her bio:
Watching the expressions on the faces of her readers is what drives author and speaker, Barbara Ann Derksen to write. Her favorite genre is murder mystery but each book brings forth characters who rely on God as they solve the puzzle in their life.

With 17 books to her credit, Barbara works hard to develop a social media presence. Her books can be found on Amazon at http://amzn.to/MPPTst, at Barnes and Nobles, and on her website, http://www.barbaraannderksen.com.

Canadian born, Barbara is a member of The Writer’s Collective, and Christian Motorcyclists Association, USA.

I expect a little mystery for Scruffles as well, but you’ll have to find that out from the book. My thanks to Barbara and everyone joining in the Tis the Season Reading Series. —Kristin

Tis the Season Reading: Romance on the Rise

Free on Amazon for Limited Time

Free on Amazon for Limited Time

If a search of my satellite tv options is to be believed, romance movies are more popular than family films for Christmas. And they aren’t all too high on cheese factor. What about books? Although not as heavily weighted, holiday romances make up a good portion of Amazon’s Top 100 Free titles right now.  So I wanted to feature one of those titles today, so you can get it while it’s hot.

Description:

Christmas represents everything Andi Williams is supposed to have, and doesn’t. Running away to a remote mountain lodge in the Canadian Rockies, sounds like the perfect way to escape, until a mix-up finds her sharing a villa with sexy, rough around the edges, Colin Hartford.

Colin’s determination to enjoy the holiday he’s missed for the last five years, sweeps Andi into a season of joy that she’s not sure she’s ready for. Can Andi open herself up to everything the holidays have to offer…including love?

The Overall rating of Unexpected Gifts is 4.5 STARS. Here are a few highlights from the reviews:

“I have become OBSESSED with Christmas early this year and this book was exactly what I wanted… a short, holiday read that put me even more in a festive mood.”

“This story is a delicious confection from start to finish, with a delightful pair of protagonists, and a wonderfully quirky cast of secondary characters. Add in one of the most spectacularly gorgeous settings – The Canadian Rockies in snowy winter – and the stage is set for a little bit of fairytale romance.”

“I would recommend this book to anyone who likes romance with intrigue This was very light reading and I enjoyed it immensely”

So grab Unexpected Gifts by Elena Aitken while it’s free.

Book Review Bits “Romantic Suspense”

By Lisa M Airey

As an author and publisher, I have come to appreciate book reviewers in a new light. I also have binge and purge tendencies with whatever I do. One week I might read 7 books, the next week barely finish 1. And my reviews? Well, they tend to be short and sweet. “Bits” I’m calling them. You’ll see why.

“Touching the Moon” was described to me by the author, Lisa M. Airey, when I met her at a book fair. “It’s romantic suspense with a paranormal twist,” she said. Right up my alley, I thought. Still I didn’t buy and read it for months.

It is 5 out of 5 Stars IMO.

Here’s my bit on it which you can find on Amazon & Goodreads:

I’m a big fan of romantic suspense, and Touching the Moon packed it in every which way. Not a bit of tiring detail or drawn out plot, the author takes us from hit to action to twist. I like to guess what will happen next, and although I often got part right, there was always some unexpected development that took me pleasantly by surprise–even to the very end. The paranormal was a side aspect of simple, great plotting. I recommend this book to people who like equal measures romance and suspense.

Kristin King is the author of two paranormal romances “Unsinkable Vampire” and “Cain’s Coven.” Her next novel releases October 2013 and you can join the Release Party on Facebook here.
