  1. Hi,

            I thought you'd might enjoy a free advanced release e-copy of the brand new comedy fantasy sci-fi "11,984."  This is not a conventional novel. It contains a lot of creative innovations, including punctuation from the future. 

            Thousands of years in the future, humanity has finally eradicated war, poverty, and all forms of human suffering. With no problems or unanswered questions remaining in the world, everyone is bored out of their minds, that is until the sun starts putting on a light show, the first warning sign it's getting ready to supernova!

           Our heroes from the year 11,984 are your typical family of two mothers, three fathers, a couple of kids, and plenty of robots. Fun-loving Troll, so called because of her giant troll doll hair(They don't have names in the future, or wear clothes) is the world's leading hydrologist/interior decorator, whose plans to retire quickly change when faced with the drought to end all droughts. Bulb, bald head glowing like a lightbulb, is the cranky Minister of Rational Thought. His faith in science is tested by the total collapse of society. Last but not least is Litterbot, the clumsy garbagebot who gets no respect, and whose highest priority--to clean--is frustrated by a world without messes. 

           As the family works on building an escape spaceship, the sun bombards them in changing colors, which unbeknownst to them causes radiation insanity. The sky colors keep growing stronger, and these totally peaceful people are at each other's throats. It gets so bad their bodies mutate (which helps them work faster) and world computer crashes (forcing them to read primitive paper books, and rely more on Litterbot.) Will they launch before getting smashed to pieces? 

          My first humor novel, Foxavier and Plinka, was published in 2013, and is also available.

    May I email the complete 11,984 manuscript of 75,000 words?

    Thank you.

  2. Trying to verify your email address so I can forward you a book. You have agreed to do a review in mid-May through Great Escapes and the email address she gave me is in question. Please confirm. Thanks.

  3. I write the Klepto Cat Mysteries--cozy mysteries featuring an ordinary cat who takes things. Often, the things he takes wind up being a clue to the current mystery. This series is 23 book strong and counting. Book one, Catnapped, just became an audio book. The others, including the latest, Cattywampus Travels, are all published in print and for Kindle. Please check them out here: and let me know if you'd like to review one of the books. I'm also interested in doing a book tour.

  4. Hi, LuAnn:

    Last year you kindly reviewed my debut novel On the Edge of Sunrise. This year my second book in the Long-Hair Saga series was published pushing the story from intrigue/suspense into romantic historical mystery adventure. It's called The Quest for the Crown of Thorns. I would love to have you review it. If you are interested, please let me know or via my website Best wishes, Cynthia

  5. Hi LuAnn,

    I am Fatima, assistant to author Jed Doherty and associate producer at Reading with your kids podcast. I really like your style of reviewing books and I wonder if you would be interested in reading and reviewing Jed's new children's book titled "The Great Maritini"?

    Please let me know if this is something that appeals to you and we would love to send you a copy to review.

    Thanks & Kind regards,

  6. Hi LuAnn,

    It's very nice to meet you :).

    I hope you choose to read and review my book; based on the variety of books and genres on your blog, I think you would find it compelling, and I'd love to have you as a reader and get your impressions.

    Title: Love and Kisses from My Padded Cell
    Author: Dr. Ellie Henkind Katz
    Format: e-book (any)

    This book tells the true stories of ten different men and women who spent years suffering the consequences of various addictions and other compulsive behaviors. My hope is that as they share in the experiences of these characters, readers will be able to look beyond the shocking events and come to see the humanity and pain interwoven with the problem of addiction.

    I'm happy to gift you a copy, and if you do post a review, I would ask you to put it on Amazon if possible. That's the only platform where book is for sale, and I'd love to give it a healthy boost there.

    Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

    Dr. Ellie Katz
