Karen in Pittsburgh at GCLS this week

pittsburgh_2019_smallKaren will be attending the Golden Crown Literary Society annual conference this week in Pittsburgh, July 10-14.

If you’re attending, keep an eye out for her and feel free to say hello and introduce yourself. She’ll also be participating in the authors book signing on Saturday from 2:30-3:30 p.m.

Be sure to wish her luck — As the Crow Flies is a finalist in the Romantic Blend category.  Hmm… “Romantic Blend” sounds like a good name for a cocktail. Here’s to hoping there will be celebration on Saturday night!

What Curve magazine has to say about “As the Crow Flies”

There are two romances for the price of one in this fascinating book, and the paranormal elements are skillfully woven through the entire story. Don’t worry if you’re not a fan of ghost stories—I didn’t think I was but this book convinced me otherwise…The settings were described using wonderful language and imagery, and the quality of the writing overall was very high….I definitely recommend this book if you want something intellectual and a little bit different to sink your teeth into.

Read the entire review in the current issue of Curve and its Australian sister publication, LOTL.

Report from Women’s Week, Provincetown

Karen Bookstore with the crowProvincetown was wonderful, in spite of rain half the week. I rent a house there every summer, but my dream has always been to go in October for Women’s Week. Not only did it work out this year, but the trip coincided with the release of my new book, As the Crow Flies.

Ptown Karen and fan

 

 

 

Turned out to be a busy week, what with readings and book signings, but it was an absolute pleasure meeting both old and new fans and enjoying drinks with many of them at the Harbor Lounge, Vixen and Boatslip on rainy nights.

Ptown reading Gabriel

And, of course, I enjoyed doing readings at Gabriel’s and the public library in the company of other authors whose work I love.

I’m happy to report that The Crow sold out at Recovering Hearts, and I hope those who bought a copy won’t be disappointed. While there is a paranormal subplot (don’t want to give up the ghost here) the romance is paramount. In fact there are two romances; that between two middle aged women (the professor and the writer) and another between two young women (Liz, the interior designer, and Isabel, heir to the family’s paper company). To those reading it, please share your thoughts.
