My novels are finished!  All three of them are available in both Kindle and paperback formats.  

Next week, I will launch a free Kindle promotion from September 27th through October 1st for the two new ones: Double Billing and Mitch & Wendy: Lost in Adventure LandHome Inspection will be available as a free download on September 27th only.

More information is coming soon, and if you'd like to check out my Amazon page, you can go Here.

Sounds good to me. I will check it out.

I really like Home Inspection. All it needs is maybe a re-write or two and I think it would be a very marketable book. The concept is very good and interesting, but I think Julius needs a little bit of tweaking in order for him to carry the novel. He needs some help in the leading man department.

It's probably hard to get that right though. I was thinking about how hard it must be to write Dr. Watson. Everything is from his perspective, he carries the stories, but Sherlock is really the star. I felt like the patients were the Sherlock's of Home Inspection and Julius was like a Dr. Watson. Sherlock can carry a movie or book without a doubt because he's so eccentric, but Watson is so down to earth that he is probably the harder character to get right even though he is technically the main character of all the stories.

Thank you, Jane. I will look forward to your insights on Double Billing and Mitch & Wendy!

Any chance of making Monday at the Charm available in a Kindle edition?

I looked into that but I no longer have an electronic file (it was written in 1998, several computers ago), I'd have to dig up my contract with the publisher, and oh, it just got to be too much to think about for a book I don't think many people are interested in reading at this point (2001 was a long time ago).
If you'd like a hard copy, email me your address to shinkrapblog at g mail dot com and next time I'm at the post office, I will stick a copy in the mail to you.

Congratulations, Dinah! That's a big accomplishment!

(But you shouldn't tell us they'll be free next week...then we won't buy them this week... ;-)

Well someone has an e-file of your book since they are offering it at about 25 bucks plus shipping on Amazon, not as a used copy but as a new "print on demand" book. Hopefully, you get a share of the revenue if they sell any copies. The price is pretty steep for a book you doubt people want to read and unless you have an agreement with them to sell your book on a print on demand basis, you should go after them.

Great post Jane, books are a big part of my life - no doubt! I as a psychiatrist read a lot
