The End of a Series

      https://books2read.com/u/mqrOn6     I love the Kidnap Gang, so it's a little sad to see the end of the series. Why then, is it ending? First, the arc has...well...arced. We meet the characters in KIDNAP.org (which is free here: https://books2read.com/u/mZ58rl  We see them take down a really big bad guy in Pharma Con . ($2.99 here: https://books2read.com/u/mKEOVE)   And we see Robin deal with her past in The Trouble with Dad. (Link above) Second, I have other irons in the fire. Like a lot of authors, I love trying something new. While working with the same characters over and over can be rewarding and is less taxing on the brain, it can also result in stale plots and "jumping the shark," making things happen that are hard for the reader to believe. If you've ever stopped buying a series because things just got too crazy, you know what I mean. So I wish Robin and the gang well, but I'm done with them. I did leave an opening for more books in the future. SPOI

New Life for a Book

One of the things authors need to recognize is that books don't just take off and become bestsellers. Some lie around for months, even years, waiting to be noticed. We're encouraged not to neglect our backlists, but it's difficult when there's something "NEW! NEW! NEW!" to talk about. That's been the case with the Loser series, which ended a couple of years ago. Killing Silence is one of my favorites among my books. I love the protagonist, Loser, who is homeless and damaged but not down and out. The idea that homeless people are counted out of society, ignored by most and assumed to be incapable of paying attention, makes her a perfect sleuth. The publisher of this series has decided to make Killing Silence free on Kindle for May 29-31. I'm really excited about this, since I think freebies are a great way to introduce a book to new readers. If you've already read the book, you can help by passing the news on to your Kindle-reading friends

Sale! Books! Read!

I could give a long and not very interesting explanation of why I have an overload of print books in my office, but I won't bore you with that. Let's get to the sale: I'm offering some of my older books at discounted prices. If you're interested in them for yourself or for gifts, this is a great time to get them. No booksellers between you and me, although I do have to charge an extra $5.00 for postage if you want them mailed to you. If you live in northern Lower Michigan, we can arrange to meet somewhere and save you a few bucks. You can find out more about the books here or on Amazon (where they know everything!) If you're interested, email me at pegfish@yahoo.com and we'll get this done. +
