MY LITTLE LIGHT SHINES ON...


Karen Rose Smith


Karen Rose Smith was born in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania. Although she was an only child, she remembers the bonds of an extended family. Since her father came from a family of ten and her mother, a family of seven, there were always aunts, uncles and cousins visiting on weekends. Family is a strong theme in her books and she suspects her childhood memories are the reason.

In college, Karen began writing poetry and also met her husband to be. They both began married life as teachers, but when their son was born, Karen decided to try her hand at a home-decorating business. She returned to teaching for a while but changes in her life led her to writing romance fiction. Now she writes mysteries and romances full time. She is a USA Today best-selling and award-winning author. Her 86th novel, GILT BY ASSOCIATION, will be released in 2015 by Kensington Books.

When she isn't writing, she cares for four rescue cats and a couple of strays, gardens, and cooks. Married to her college sweetheart since 1971, believing in the power of love and commitment, she envisions herself writing relationship novels, both mystery and romance, for a long time to come!


Ten Things About Me
  1. I was an only child who always longed for a sister.
     
  2. During my childhood I always had access to a relative's farm.
     
  3. This summer my husband and I took in a stray pregnant cat and helped deliver her kittens.
     
  4. When I was in my late twenties, I learned to swim and ride horses!
     
  5. I attended the Beatles concert at Dodger Stadium.
     
  6. With my cousin I wrote a script for The Monkees tv show.
     
  7. I wrote for six years and finished 13 manuscripts before I sold two books in one week to two different publishers.
     
  8. I use a tape recorder to write and like to tape on the patio on summer nights under the moon.
     
  9. I love 60's fashion.
     
  10. I'm a crazy cat lady!

WHEN DEATH REJOICES




About The Book
Title: Death Rejoices
Author: AJ Aalto
Genre: Paranormal / Urban Fantasy


Marnie Baranuik is back, and this time, the Great White Shark of psychic investigations has “people skills” and a new assistant who seems to harbor an unhealthy curiosity about Harry, her revenant companion. Together, they’ve got a whole lot of questions that need answering. Is an ancient vampire hunting in Denver? Who is stalking Lord Dreppenstedt? How do you cure a slipper-humping bat, ditch an ogre, or give a demon king the slip? And what the hell was she thinking, swearing off cookies?

Teaming up with her sexual nemesis, Special Agent Mark Batten, and their long-suffering supervisor, Gary Chapel, Marnie discovers that vampire hunters aren’t easy to rescue, secrets don’t stay buried, and zombies sure are a pain in the ass to kill.

Author Bio

AJ Aalto is the author of the paranormal mystery series The Marnie Baranuik Files. Aalto is an unrepentant liar and a writer of  blathering nonsense offset by factual gore. When not working on her novels, you can find her singing Monty Python songs in the shower, eavesdropping on perfect strangers, stalking her eye doctor, or failing at one of her fruitless hobbies. Generally a fan of anyone with a passion for the ridiculous, she has a weak spot for smug pseudo-intellectuals and narcissistic jerks; readers will find her work littered with flawed monsters and oodles of snark.
AJ cannot say no to a Snickers bar and has been known to swallow her gum.

SURPRISE RELEASE!!!

Title: Beneath Innocence

(A Deception Novella)

Authors: Ker Dukey & D.H Sidebottom

Release Date: January 28, 2015

Synopsis
You met Jenson and Blue in the BESTSELLING title Fa├žade, now you can continue their journey in the Deception series Novella, Beneath Innocence.

JENSON

We all say we'd kill for the one we love, but would we?
I did.
And I took great satisfaction in doing it as painfully and gruesomely as possible. He paid for what he did to Blue.... My girl, the only girl who could ever steal my heart.
Did it get me anywhere?
Oh yeah.
I fell onto a path of self-destruction. I reserved myself a spot in hell. And Blue left.

BLUE

When someone kills for you, you owe them everything, even your life. I couldn't even give him my heart.
Why?
Because I didn't deserve for him to protect it for me.
Instead, I hid away, made some wrong choices and watched from afar as the man I loved fell in love with someone else.
