Galleys that went out this week
GUIDING SPIRIT: A Ghostly Love Story, by Robert Kanehl
   Love does not end with death or at the gravesite. It lingers in this world, as powerful after death as before. Ashley Dunlap and David Paine discover this first hand, as a benevolent spirit guides their lives toward its desires. Will the two follow this spirit’s pathway or rebel against its power to follow their own free will?

Jack's News!

  by your bookstore cat, 
and gossip columnist!
Author Ann Foley who is also the Secretary of the Writer's Bloc, sent us the following news:
Something you may want to be part of is the 3rd Friday Open Mike Night for poets in Feb.,  on Friday the 19th. in the SWAK office downtown above Season's Best.  It is from 5-8, and is a nice cozy warm place where you can read your poetry. Hope you can join us.

Anyone writing or interested in children's books might want to check out:


Ray Morand, author of the 5 book series The Red Knight Chronicles, has begun the first of a new series that may (Shhh! This is a secret.) have characters who could be descendants of some of the Red Knight Chronicles characters. Mmmm. What Have They all Been Up to?

Author Barbara Grengs is planning a big launch party and signing for her sixth and final young adult Toby Martin Mystery series book. Next on her plate? Possibly book for adults instead of teens.

As for the evil snow predicted? It didn't amount to much.  Roger got the Emergency Kit together, but scoffed the whole time, arguing that our big snows almost always come up from the south, not from the west.

And sure enough he was right! As soon as the snow got this side of the Appalachians, it spun off North over Washington and headed for New York.  We did get about 8 inches on this side of Chesapeake Bay -- a little deeper than me and the baby sister care to play in --nothing belly-deep for US!

Well it looks like Roger has his guitar out. It's time for me to go help him sing!

Please don't forget to let me know 
what you are all up to, so I'll have  
Gossip for my column next week!

I'll make sure it shows up right here.
