Hello & Author Spotlight

Standard

Hello everyone!

How are you doing? Hope all the mothers out there had a GREAT Mother’s Day this past Sunday. I didn’t have any money to buy my mom anything, but she loves it when I make something from the heart, so I just drew her a card. I wanted to create a post to say Hi because it’s been quite a while since I’ve posted anything and to spotlight an author who is doing a Blog Hop and I offered to post her book on here. So, below, you will find information on Lisa Litberg and the links to her book “Free”.

Author Bio:

For as long as she can remember, Lisa Litberg has loved to write.  Over the years she has amassed quite a collection of short stories and poetry, but Free is her first novel.  A high school teacher for 15 years, she tries to empower her urban students with the written word.  When she isn’t writing or teaching, Lisa might be dancing, playing guitar, practicing aerial arts, or hanging out in her Chicago home with her son Trevor watching The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones.

Book Blurb:

Since leaving home at the age of 18, Free has traveled the country trying to find a place to call home.  Her travels afford a variety of experiences, from following the Grateful Dead to waitressing in Chicago to selling jewelry in New Orleans’ French Market, but nothing seems to quell her sense of unrest.  All the while her estranged brother Alfie is in her thoughts.  Once she finds him, perhaps she’ll finally feel at home.  But her world is filled with bad choices and temptations, and Free must rise above these in order to find her place. 

 The reader will feel as if they are traveling right alongside Free in this moving coming-of-age story.

Hello everyone! Bunch of stuff today!

Hi all!!!!!

Yeah, I know, it’s been FOREVER since I’ve posted anything. Ah, let’s see…sometime in December because I remember writing about New Years and such. Well, a LOT has happened since then. My year has been going great so far. I am almost finished with the first book in my Series, “Cupid’s Cyber Connection”. Gotta do a little reviewing and seeing if I have to add anything to it. I’ve started a book cover service as well, so if anyone needs a book cover made for their book, visit the website: Jamie’s Book Designs – Book Cover Service. I have also created a Facebook page for it if you want to check it out and “Like” it. I’m also promoting my author page a little more, which I am proud to say has 285 Likes! Here is the page if you’d like to check it out: Jamie L. Kaplan – Author and here is the link to the Book Cover service FB page: Jamie’s Book Designs – Facebook Page. If you all could help and spread the word to other authors out there, I would be so appreciative. I do charge for my book covers, so please read the Price List carefully, then send in your requests using the form I have on the Book Cover Form page. The instructions are on the page, but if you do have other questions, you can e-mail me at JamieLKaplan@hotmail.com (There is a contact form on the website as well). So far, the page as 8 Likes, which isn’t bad. Here is the cover I have chosen for the book series and I may keep it throughout the series, and just change the book number.

Cupid's Cyber Connection Cover 3Let me know what you think about it. I believe that this book will do better than my last three books. I’ve also thought about dabbling in Children’s books. Since I’ve been sick with Sinusitis and had a double ear infection (still dealing with it, ugh), I’ve decided to write a Children’s book about how being sick is no fun. I think children will like it. Parents can read it their kids when their sick, it will make them feel better. Well, that’s all I have for right now. I will try to update much sooner than before haha.

Until next time!

Hey, long time, no post!

Hello everyone!

Yes, I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here and it because I’ve been very busy with my personal life. I’m currently fixing to attend school again to get a degree in Early Childhood Education. So, I’ve been trying to figure out Financial Aid and everything else. My book, “Killer Instinct”, is going great so far! I’m on Chapter 13 right now and have a lot planned out for it. Can not wait to get it finished. That’s why you have not heard a lot from me because I have been working on that lately. I’m taking my time on this one because I feel like my other two books were rushed the reason why they didn’t sell too well. I’m hoping that this one will bring in the readers. 🙂 And I know I haven’t done any promos/interviews lately, but I will get back to them. Just thought I would update you all. Talk to you all soon!

Hi! Book news!

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to put a post up to tell you all that I’m working on a new book! It’s gonna be a slow process because in August, I will be going back to school to get another degree in Early Childhood Education, so I will be concentrating more on my studies than writing, SO, that being said, the publishing date for it is TBA. Here is a synopsis of my book, “Killer Instinct” to tie you over until then:

Killer Instinct

The Lawrence family has had a lot to deal with in their life. Their youngest son, Aiden, has been plagued with nightmares his whole life. When he tries to murder his parents one night, they put him in a mental hospital, hoping that it will cure him of his killer instincts. After a week at the hospital, it seems like all is well when nothing happens for a couple of years. When he’s sixteen and in High School, it starts all over again. Aiden begins having hallucinations of him killing everyone he comes in contact with, even his teachers. They suggest to his parents that they take him out of school and place him in an asylum. The parents agree and put him in the local mental asylum, where he stays for the rest of his life. Avery moves to New York and joins the NYPD. One day, she gets word about someone who has gone on a killing spree in the area. She fears that Aiden might’ve escaped the asylum, and is now acting on his instincts. Avery wants to help out with the case, but her boss tells her not to get involved. Against his wishes, she goes out and tries to help track down the guy, only finding out that her worst fear comes true.

Hope you all like it whenever it gets published. I will keep you all informed of the progress!

Talk to you all later!
