News from Karen’s Writing Desk
Each month end, I’ll send out my hot off the press news as if it were a newsletter. They are never complete without a few selected books from other authors whose books I’ve read and enjoyed.
No changes on my own books still at the editing stage. Four stories that I look forward to sharing with you.
Coming Home is an anthology sharing stories using the title as a the theme. I have two in it, one published on here, the other written especially for it.
Joanna’s Journey, I shared last month. It’s my biggest novel and I’m still rewriting that and probably will be for a while. If you missed the excerpt it’s here.
I’ve written a blog every day for the whole of March, and five on the Norns Triad Publications website.
My reading list looks like this, and a record for me. It’s the most amount of books I’ve read in a month. I’m so in love with reading!

Here are my book recommendations:
A missing couples report and a mutilated body.
Two years apart, same house.
Coincidence or something more sinister?
When Lt. Flynn lands a missing couples case, he finds no evidence of anything amiss. There are no signs of a struggle or foul play. The only clue lies in a dog-eared notebook, but is it true?
Two years later, a mutilated body is found in the same residence. Lt. Carter is assigned the case, and now, he’s faced with a life-altering decision. Can he afford to ignore the evidence that Sgt Alvarez reveals to him – the same evidence that led to his partner’s disappearance?
How many people will die before Carter brings the truth to light? Who will believe in the existence of a genetically manipulated monster?
Starved for love and fearing time is running out, attorney Tally Abram seeks the aid of her gay best friends, Lex and Ishkode Ackerman, in fathering the children she desperately wants. Will they comply? Will Tally find the family she craves? Or will her need for completion destroy the most important relationships in her life?
This book explores the ideas of family structure, tri-parenting, and polyamorous relationships. It contains mature material and is not suitable for those under 18 years of age.
Lauren West and Ben Hughes are saving frantically for their forthcoming marriage and mortgage deposit. When Lauren sees an advert online from a firm of brokers extolling the profits to be gained by buying and selling Bitcoins, she is interested enough to pursue it further.
Lauren clicks on the advert. She is soon contacted by Paul Cash, a knowledgeable stockbroker whom Lauren trusts straight away. He is affable, plausible, and seemingly genuinely interested in her welfare. Lauren looks forward to making enough money to be able to surprise Ben and bring the date of their wedding forward, and also to put a deposit down on their ideal house.
What could possibly go wrong?
For anthropology graduate student Sam Delgado, headed to the wilds of Wyoming, this is his last chance to save his graduate career. He and his urban classmates see this as the adventure of a lifetime: They are going to horse-pack in the wilderness to map and test a high-altitude archaeological site.
Until a cyber-attack collapses the American banking system, and an already fractured nation descends into anarchy and chaos. All credit frozen, Sam and his archaeological field school is trapped in their high-altitude camp. With return to the East impossible, Sam, the woman he has come to love, and the rest of the students must rely on hard-bitten Wyoming ranchers for their very survival.
Guided only by an illusive Shoshone spirit helper, Sam will discover the meaning of self-sacrifice. Even at the cost of his life.
