The Callaways

In 2014 I’ll be releasing four more books in my connected family series:  The Callaways!

This blended family features eight siblings who were “born to serve and protect”, many as San Francisco firefighters, but others as cops, teachers, and doctors. Each sibling gets their own love story and every novel in the series features romance, mystery and suspense!

The first four books are currently available and include: ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS (#1) , SO THIS IS LOVE (#2), FALLING FOR A STRANGER (#3) and BETWEEN NOW AND FOREVER (#4). ALL A HEART NEEDS (#5) will be released February 27, 2014! NobodyButyou120x190

In addition to the full-length books in the Callaway series, I am also going to periodically release novellas.  (A novella is a short novel approximately 25-30,000 words, so a little less than half the size of a full book).  The novellas will feature events in the family that don’t warrant a full book but will be fun to read about and feature popular secondary characters.

The first novella is entitled NOBODY BUT YOU (A Callaway Wedding Novella), and features the wedding of Emma and Max, the hero and heroine from SO THIS IS LOVE, and Max’s brother, Spencer, the wounded, darkly handsome man from the same story, gets a shot at his own love story. It wouldn’t be a Callaway wedding without some drama, so expect romance, suspense, and a lot of emotion!

Self Publishing 

As many of you know, I am now  independently publishing my books, which is exciting and fun and also a tremendous amount of work. But I love being able to bring my readers more titles more frequently! In a little less than three years, I’ve sold over 4 million ebooks! You can read a little more about self publishing journey here!

Many writers have asked me where they can go to get help with their self-publishing efforts. I use my daughter’s company – KLF Publishing and Promotions for all my digital conversions, proofing needs, social media and other promotional activities. Email for more information.
