I'm very excited Joe Clifford has his cover for LAMENTATION.  I'm so looking forward to seeing this book in print! I just sent Joe revision notes for his latest suspense novel SKUNK TRAIN. We'll send SKUNK TRAIN to Oceanview Publishing for the first look as soon as he's done.

I always suggest writers "friend" Joe on Facebook. Joe is truly one of the best authors at self-promotion I have ever seen. He has successfully created a supportive community for writers, friends and family.

Terri Nolan's GLASS HOUSES Receives a Starred Review from Kirkus!

Nolan continues what promises to be a long and lovingly crafted saga about the strains and gains of love and loyalty.

Read the entire review here.

GLASS HOUSES is the second novel in Nolan's Birdie Keane series. Kirkus also liked her first, BURDEN OF TRUTH, but was a little more cautious with praise: "Nolan packs quite a twist in her debut, but Birdie’s tour through pedophilia and rampant homophobia will make this a tough tale for many readers."

Congratulations Terri from KC&A! We are all very proud of you.

KC&A had a fabulous time at SFWC 2014.

Our agents Kimberley, Liz, and Amy sat on a panel in front of hundreds of authors and listened to author pitches for four hours on Friday at the San Francisco Writer's Conference. New agent Mary shadowed Kimberley and took on a few fantasy pitches herself. There was barely time to mingle or enjoy the views, although we did take a moment to take a selfie in front of the Grace Cathedral. There were plenty of interesting authors to entertain us however, and we look forward to reading your queries!

Great review for TJ O'Connor's debut novel, DYING TO KNOW.

"O'Connor does a wonderful job of conveying the feeling of urgency about the case as well as the frustration of Tuck adjusting to his new 'life' on the other side. The story is so good that readers may tend to momentarily forget that Tuck is a ghost."

REVENANT is Making Waves Through The Bloggersphere!

Vaughn Entwistle's THE REVENANT OF THRAXTON HALL: THE PARANORMAL CASEBOOKS OF SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE is garnering some great reviews on the web. 

Book Bound: I found the cast of the strange and vexing mass of Séance experts and other oddities to be hilarious. It was the perfect mix of two literary legends and some other folk who made the book strangely unnatural, with backstories that permeated through all of the different plots.

Library Mom: Read this exciting first book of The Paranormal Casebooks of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle series. Can’t wait to read the next book!

A Bookish Girl: This one was definitely a page-turner for me!
