Drop Your Books Here (A Reference of Friends' Published Works)

It's a good idea, I think. Because, you know, we all like a good list of good books to read.
I was going to create this whole thing for you, had the post of it mapped out in my head, but then I realized I'm getting to know too many writers with published books (which is really kinda crazy-cool and exciting) to try and list them all.
So, I invite you to drop your books here. YA? Historical fiction? Women's fiction? Mystery? Non-fiction, etc., etc.?
Friends (and visitors), leave a comment with your published (or even soon-to-be) title(s) and a link to your website. If you've a logline or short summary to add, please do. Let's get you some readers!
Readers, let's get you some books!

What a great idea, Jana! When I get closer to publication, I'll be back. :)

Cool idea. I'm reading A Watershed Year right now (I think you'd like it) and I recently met w/ that author in person.

Miz Angie alerted me to this, since I'm here at the secret cottage with her and Miz Alaine in Fairhope Alabammy -- working on VK III and relaxin and eatin and laughin!

Yup, I have books out - three and soon a novella in an anthology with sarah addison allen and augusta trobaugh, and 'nother novel on the way to pub this fall. Wheee! I've been a busy woman :-D

A wonderful idea - like browsing a li-berry or bookstore!

Great Idea, Janna. I was trying to think of a good way to consolidate all my "pimp monday" posts into one to share all of our friends great books.

I'll leave the link for my Time Travel Romance, Dustin Time, here.

Logline: When Kaitlyn tries to leave Dusty, fate has other plans.

You rock :)

what a great idea.

Eldala is my first fantasy novel.

"When Kieran receives a cryptic letter from King Arathor on his twentieth birthday, he has to choose between living the safe life of a blacksmith or coming out of hiding. If he believes the king, he can free Teleria from a twenty-year curse and depose the false king, but it could also mean giving up the mysterious woman who shares his dreams and his heart."

you can find out more at my
Eldala website

A wonderful service you're providing here! I shall keep this in my file, as I get closer to putting my work in print.

This is an awesome idea!

Deb Shucka said...

What a thoughtful and generous thing you're offering Janna. It looks like there are a number of us hoping someday soon to have a title to offer here. I expect we'll see one of yours here, too, before too much longer.

Linda Hoye said...

I agree with Deb. In no time at all you will post the name of your book here, Janna. We will all be celebrating with you!

Thanks for doing this dear Janna!!
My memoir, The Unbreakable Child.
A riveting, heart wrenching journey inside the secretive underbelly of an orphan asylum in rural Kentucky in the 1960's and the historic present day lawsuit, championed by lawyer, William F. McMurry, that would follow decades later. A story of justice, hope, redemption and forgiveness.
