I am so pleased  to announce the release of ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE as a Samhain Retro Contemporary Romance.  It's available for pre-order now and will be on sale October 16 on Amazon, Nook, as well as at the Samhain site. I've always felt a special connection to this book for several reasons.  It's a holiday romance with all of the scents, sounds and feelings that go with that.  But also the emotional journey my heroine Abigail takes as a trauma makeup artist is a heart-tugging one.  I had a book trailer designed that will give you a taste of ABIGAIL AND MISTLETOE.

This month I will also be starting a Montana Mavericks release that will be available October 2013.  There is a flood in Rust Creek Falls, Montana.  The books in the series highlight the rebuilding of the town. I'm writing a romance about a sexy cowboy/veterinarian and a pretty volunteer who arrives in Rust Creek Falls to help the residents rebuild.  Somehow they end up in a marriage of convenience!

In time for Christmas, I'm hoping to have for sale a few boxed sets to help readers find my romances.  There are two available now--Volume 2 in my Search For Love series which includes books 4, 5 and 6 and volume 1 in my Finding Mr. Right series which includes books 1 through 4.  In Search For Love, there are continuing characters from each book.  In Finding Mr. Right, each book is a stand-alone.

I've been writing a series of blogs about rescuing Zoie.  You can read them on my blog site if you're interested in our journey.  Karen's Blog


We still have flowers blooming, even though the growing season is coming to an end.  The morning glories have multi-colored blooms.  A Moon Flower bloomed for a day and emanated a beautiful scent.  This seems to be the best growing season for the clump zinnias which are bushier and prettier than ever with the cooler temperatures at night.  Even the geraniums seem to like the cooler weather...or maybe it's all the rain we've received lately.    

The cats are living together somewhat peacefully.  Zoie and London play--or rather London tolerates Zoie playing as they run up and down the steps.  London still hisses to put Zoie in her place.  Zoie and Ebbie have an unusual bond--Zoie wants to get close to Ebbie and doesn't always know how.  But they often sit and look out the window together.

I was sorry to see the peach season end.  We had a delicious local crop this year that lasted longer than usual.  We have lots of apple orchards also in our area of Pennsylvania and I will soon be making apple pies.


For the contest this month, I'm offering the prize of a steel bangle bracelet with a heart charm as well as a copy of THE CEO'S UNEXPECTED PROPOSAL (Reunion Brides, Book 3).  Use the button on the right to enter the contest.  Please only one entry per email address.  They are sorted.  The contest ends October 31at midnight EST.  Winner will be notified by November 15 and will have to email me his or her snail mail address.  If winner does not verify by midnight November 30, a new winner will be drawn.  THE CONTEST IS OPEN TO US/CANADA WINNERS ONLY.  

Good luck and have a great fall.
