Summer & Any time Reads

The New York Times book section features an article in today's paper,

When the Water’s Too Cold,
Something Else to Dive Into
A Critic’s Survey of Summer Books

The article lists an interesting compilation of titles, but there are A LOT missing - where oh where are the books by Indie and Small Press authors? While I still enjoy books by some well known and major imprint authors like Faye Kellerman, Jonathan Kellerman, Dean Koontz and Patrica Cornwell - and as a Dave Barry fan I do plan to get around to reading his humorous "parenting" book - most of the books I've enjoyed in recent years have been by the lesser known but equally talented Indie authors I "hang out" with on FaceBook and Twitter and in various Yahoo writers' groups.

So I propose Let's Make Our Own Summer Reading List...

Post one book in the comments below. Include the Title, Author, genre, 1 Buy Link (please use or another URL shortener), and a brief (approx. 3-4 sentence) synopsis. You can post your own or another author's book, but please give only one title - and then be sure to spread the word.

This season let's really give leisure-seekers something to dive into.

Your listing should look like this:

Karma Visited by Chelle Cordero
Paranormal contemporary romantic suspense
Amazon (Kindle)
Do you believe in karma? Annie Furman has a gift that allows her, while she sleeps, to visit people in their time of need - but who will be there for her when she needs help? Undersheriff Dave Turner is investigating a series of home invasions and homicides. He has no idea that solving this case will lead him to the woman of his dreams.

*I don't think html is accepted in my comments

& our list!

She Didn't Say No written by Charmaine Gordon

Grace didn’t say no to the Big Man On Campus, Scott Dwyer. And then her life changed...

Grace makes her way to a new town to establish The Pet Emporium where she grooms , what else? Dogs and cats.

Years later, a too-close encounter of an unpleasant kind with a skunk and Scott’s German Shepherd reunites the former lovers.

What happens in between are their stories of beginnings and endings and love lost, then found.

Thanks for this great promo op.

Lilith Wilding can’t remember a time when she didn’t love the English born Robin Pierpont, but she knows he loves another so she hides her feelings beneath a hard veneer of self-protection.
Robin Pierpont dreams of flying airplanes and winning the heart of the one he loves, but when he gets involved in illegal rum running to help a friend, those dreams seem to turn into just a fantasy. When he is called upon to face his worst fear to save Lilith’s life, his fate may be sealed in death.
