Year of the Dog serial novel, chapter 22

I’m posting a Humorous Christian Romantic Suspense serial novel here on my blog! Year of the Dog is a (second) prequel to my Warubozu Spa Chronicles series. Year of the Dog serial novel by Camy Tang Mari Mutou, a professional dog trainer, is having a bad year. While renovating her new dog kenneling and training facility, she needs to move in with her disapproving family, who have always made her feel inadequate—according to them, a job requiring her to be covered in dog hair and slobber is an embarrassment to the family. She convinces her ex-boyfriend to take her dog for a few months … but discovers that his brother is the irate security expert whose car she accidentally rear-ended a few weeks earlier. Ashwin Keitou has enough problems. His aunt has just shown up on his doorstep, expecting to move in with him, and he can’t say no because he owes her everything—after his mother walked out on them, Auntie Nell took in Ashwin and his brother and raised them in a loving Chri

Nook Tablet new 8GB only $199

I got this deal in my email today and thought I'd pass it on in case any of you were looking at an ereader tablet. I just saw a comparison "prize fight" between Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet on cnet.com (embedded below) and both were comparable, although Nook Tablet came out a little ahead.

Review: Harriet

Harriet by Joan Mellows My rating: 5 of 5 stars Joan Mellows is probably one of my favorite traditional Regency authors. Her writing style in this book is similar to Jane Austen's (witty but sometimes long sentences), and the characters are very likable. Harriet is strong-willed but soft-hearted and the hero is tortured and passionate without being cliche. A very entertaining, engaging read. View all my reviews

The Phenomenon of Not Downloading Free Ebooks

Captain's Log, Stardate 02.01.2012 So here’s a weird phenomenon. There are a bunch of free thriller books available today on Kindle but I’m not a huge fan of secular thriller because many of them tend to get a little more gristly than I like. I looked at the book blurbs, but they were mostly serial killer type of thrillers, which do tend to get bloody. So I am actually not downloading free ebooks! I can’t believe it! But it also got me to thinking. These days there are so many free ebooks that people can start to pick and choose which free ebooks to download. Isn’t that a strange thing? Before, I’d be snatching up almost any free ebook available because, well, it’s free . Now, I’m like, “Thrillers, eh. I read them but not my favorite genre. I’ll pass.” I probably should have had this mentality for some of the other free ebooks I downloaded in the past, because I wouldn’t have so many ebooks that I probably won’t ever read. Then again, they don’t take up space in my ho

Excerpt of chapter one: Prologue Crazy lights swirled against the evening sky. Day morphed into the merriment of night. Cotton candy and hot dogs.
