11/22/63 by Stephen King

This novel tells the story of Jake Epping, a divorced high school teacher, who becomes a time traveler on a mission to stop the Kennedy assassination. It begins with Jake reading and becoming attached to a story, written by a student in his adult GED night-class, about his father murdering his mother and siblings when he was a child. Soon after, Jake discovers a way to go back in time. The traumatic past story from his student becomes a present goal to amend and helps Jake unlock the rules and consequences of time travel before he attempts his main mission of preventing the assassination of Kennedy. As Jake attempts to change the future by inserting himself in past events, he realizes that “time” does not want to be changed and the stronger the difference an event makes in history, the stronger “time” fights against Jake trying to alter it.

The Duke’s Perfect Wife, by Jennifer Ashley.

Just finished a Great Book!
I just finished a great book, The Duke’s Perfect Wife, by Jennifer Ashley.  Jennifer Ashley has written a fantastic historical romance series about the Mackenzie family.  The first in the series, The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie, (available at your local Book Shack!) is FABULOUS.  The hero, Lord Ian, has what would today be diagnosed as Aspergers.  This adds a whole new dimension to the story.  The Duke’s Perfect Wife is Hart’s story.  Hart is the head of the family.  Now the question is what to read next… I have a TBR (To Be Read) pile that takes up an entire bookcase.

Always interested in the Self-Published.

I’ve christened May the How To Sell Self-Published Books Month here on Catherine, Caffeinated, but before we get into the nuts and bolts of marketing and promoting your book, we need to have a little tough love session first.

At my most recent workshop I started off by saying to the participants that my aim for the day was to send them home with everything I wished I’d known before I started self-publishing, or in other words everything I had to learn on the job because when I started self-publishing, I didn’t have a clue. And yet clueless and all that I was, I was operating with a huge advantage: realism. Because I’d spent a good decade of my young life poring over every How To Format a Manuscript for Submission To Within an Inch of Its Life Because, Yeah, That’s What’s Going to Be the Deciding Factor (Not!)
