With Christmas around the corner who has time to sit and read a book? The shopping, planning, and finding time to do it all can be overwhelming. Few people have time to take a much needed and deserved moment to them self this time of year. Lists get longer and time shorter, or so it seems. But the desires to sit for a few moments by that crackling fire with a good book lies somewhere in the subconscious while you rush past.

This year, while filling your shopping cart with gifts for your friends and loved yourself a favor and toss in a book for yourself, then put aside some time for you. Somehow, doing this not only allows an escape from the rush, but magically frees up time. Well, time doesn't magically appear as you'd hope, but when you're relaxed things just tend to fall into place much more efficiently.

September Author of the Month

Our September Author of the Month is Barbara Silkstone. Barbara is the bestselling author of sixteen novels and novellas. Her comedy mysteries feature goodhearted heroines caught up in screwball situations.

Her Mister Darcy series comedic mysteries are currently comprised of six novellas.
Wendy Darlin Tomb Raider is comedy, mystery series starring Miami real estate broker and part-time tomb raider – Wendy Darlin.

Silkstone’s Romantic Suspense series includes contemporary variations on classic fairytales. The Secret Diary of Alice in Wonderland, Age 42 and Three-Quarters ~ Wendy and the Lost Boys ~ Zo White and the Seven Morphs.

Mister Darcy series comedic mysteries

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is one of the most popular novels in English literature. Austen’s stories were fundamentally comic but also delivered a thump on the head to the traditions that forced 18th century women to depend on marriage as the only road to survival.

Book One in the Mister Darcy series

The mysterious Mister Darcy retains the services of dog psychologist Lizzie Bennet to train his basset puppies for an important foxhunt. Despite knowing nothing about fox hunting, Doctor Lizzie takes on the challenge. Assigned to cover the hunt for the BBC is Society Reporter Caroline Bingley, the would-be paramour of Mister Darcy.
Lizzie’s sister Jane and Charles Bingley join the adventure and fall trippingly in love as Lydia involves Georgiana in an ill-planned caper. And why is Wickham lurking in the shrubberies?

                                                 Also available in eBook, paperback, and audio.

Book Two in the Mister Darcy series 

Christmas just became a lot more complicated for dog psychologist Lizzie Bennet and her sisters. While shopping in London they find little urchin Annie and her dog Sammy. As a fierce snowstorm takes over the city, the aloof but alluring Mister Darcy invites the girls, including Annie and Sammy, to spend the night at his penthouse. With the best of intentions Darcy asks Annie and her seven siblings to join the Bennet sisters for a quiet Christmas Eve celebration in his London fortress. The skullduggery begins when Caroline Bingley – the villainess Austen fans love to boo – shows up acting the part of the Grinch and Scrooge combined.

Also available in eBook, paperback, and audio.

Book Three in the Mister Darcy series

The mysterious Mister Darcy enlists the aid of dog psychologist Lizzie Bennet in his secret quest. Lizzie soon finds herself deep in his battle where familiar villains join forces with evildoers to stop Darcy at all costs. Darcy’s true feelings for Lizzie bubble to the surface but will her pride let her reciprocate? And what about that peanut butter kiss?

Also available in eBook, paperback, and audio.

Book Four in the Mister Darcy series

Lizzie plots a secret garden wedding for her sister, Jane and Charles Bingley. Can she outsmart Mother Bennet or will the gorgon prevail? With her nerves in high gear, Mrs. Bennet plans the marriage of her eldest daughter. Behind the scenes, Lizzie races against the clock to design a small garden wedding ahead of her mother’s over-the-top ball. Can Darcy cart the unsuspecting Mrs. Bennet to the garden ceremony? Will Mr. Bennet cooperate with Lizzie’s plans, or does Pansy Cottage still cast a long shadow in his memories?
                                                          Also available in eBook and paperback.

Book Five in the Mister Darcy series

Darcy shares his secret vow and his bed with Lizzie Bennet in this fifth book in the Mister Darcy series of comedic mysteries. Will Lizzie help Darcy prevent the theft of the legendary Red Rosary? Can Lizzie get even with Caroline Bingley? And who is the mystery lady in Mr. Bennet’s life?

Also available in eBook and paperback.

We are nearing September, summer is winding down, parents and students are starting to prepare for the school year ahead. It's a good time to purchase a few books for the student and a well-deserved novel for the parent's quiet time. We continue to stock our shelves with great titles from amazing authors. Speaking of great authors, don't forget to get your copy of Cynthia Robbins, The Light Warrior, featured on our website this month. A kindle copy sells for only 99 cents!

We are moving forward with our physical store. Opening is anticipated for April, 2016. We are still offering submissions for books, arts and handmade gifts to be considered for our store. You don't have to wait until the store opens since our online store is up, running and expanding daily. At this time we are not accepting perishable or large items – but we will consider them for the physical store in the spring.

Speaking of 'on-line store', we have been so busy taking orders, reading submissions, and mailing off orders! (That’s a good thing). We want to let our customer's, clients, and potential client know how much we appreciate your business and support! Thank you all so much!

We are hoping to take a few trips further south along the coast this fall, hitting all the markets we find, in search of great talent. We'll also be using the time to rest up for the coming grand opening. Maybe we'll see you in our travels.
