Read the Liz Baker Series Free in June

During the month of June I'll be running a promotion that will make it possible for each and every one of you to read the entire Liz Baker series for free. You're probably asking, "What do I need to do?"

It's really easy, and something you're probably already doing on a regular basis. Here are the steps:

1. Be a subscriber to this newsletter! Click here to sign up.
2. Leave a review for any Liz Baker book(s) you've already read.
3. Email me with the link to your review & the title of the next book you'd like to read. (Ex: I've already read book 1 & here's the link to my review on Amazon. I'd like to receive book 2 next.)
4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 to receive the next book. Lather, rinse, repeat!

It's very easy. You can leave reviews on any of the book sites that sell/share my books. Amazon -- B&N -- Kobo -- Smashwords -- GoodReads -- CoffeeTimeRomance

You do not have to have read any of the Liz books to get started. Just email me to let me know you'd like to start with book 1 and I'll get it to you.

This promotion will run from June 1st through June 30th. That gives everyone an entire month to read, read, read. What better way to start the summer vacation season?

Characters: Getting to Know Annalise Baker

Image by Teresa Laing @ sxc.hu
I started this blog series a while back and haven't kept up with it, sooooo here's a new one.

Annalise Baker is Liz's mother. She is descended from very talented and powerful witches, but never seemed to have any powers of her own. Powers seem to skip generations in Annalise's family.

Annalise and Liz's step-father, Matthew, had a rough marriage both before and after Liz's conception. She finally divorced Matthew after 15 years of marriage and terrible abuse and torment.

When Adele, her best friend, drags Annalise away from home for a girls weekend, she meets Gregory. She quickly falls for him and unexpectedly falls into his bed. Thus, the conception of our hero.

When a gypsy soothsayer informs Annalise and Adele that the fate of her new daughter is in peril, the scared mother does the only thing she can to ensure a long life for her child. After several years of slowly dying from cancer (presumably), Annalise Baker passes on to the afterlife. This is where we meet Annalise.

In spirit form, she advises, informs, and helps our hero understand the new world she has been thrust into, and in the process finds her soul mate.

We hope Annalise and her soul mate are living out their happily ever afterlife!

New Series Coming Soon!

Copyright Finerain @ Sxc.hu
As much as I love my Liz Baker series, I have this deep down desire to start on my next series. I've had this one on my mind for about a year now, with several handwritten paragraphs, descriptions, and characteristics of my heroine ready for my attention. Once a story idea hits me it doesn't give me any relief until I sit down and write it. This time is no different.

I haven't worked out the details or plot 100%, but I have the general gist of things. The main character is Penelope. She just so happens to be immortal. She has an annoying younger sibling who follows her around the world causing havoc by their recklessness when all Penny wants to do is lay low in between kills, but not too low because she still has to make a living. Oh, did I mention Penny is charged with killing monsters? Yeah, life is a bit complicated for this 100+ year old woman.

I'm still playing with a title, and have a few options lined up, but not satisfied enough to go ahead and name it. I'll let you know when that happens.

I'll be fleshing out more details over the next week or two, and then jumping into full on first draft writing. That usually takes me a month or two (if everything goes smoothly on the home front), and then it'll be time for several rounds of edits and rewrites before cover design and file formatting. I always get excited when we get to that point! :)

So just a heads up for anyone falling behind in the Liz Baker series: Penny and Liz *may* have a meeting sometime in this new series, and if you're behind in the Liz series you may get some spoilers. Eek! I wouldn't want you to be spoiled.  ;)

Best wishes & lots of love!
