Book Descriptions:

MISSING ALASKA by Cherime MacFarlane

Kentucky holds a surprise for a young Native Alaskan man on the run, a young girl with a desperate need to get far from Chandler County.

Russell is running from the mess he made in Alaska during Thanksgiving. By allowing his resentment of his mother and step-father’s living arrangement to motivate him, he hurt both his mother and step-sister’s feelings. A road trip far from Alaska seemed like the cure. But Kentucky holds a surprise for Russ.

Gentry is the youngest of four children. Her sister and middle brother both joined the military and left her home to care for her father. Augie Dane is a ginseng hunter with a drinking problem. His oldest son isn’t much better. Gentry is on the run when Russ almost runs her over on Bald Knob Road. Things are about to get hot in Chandler County.

MISSING BY A HEARTBEAT by Lizabeth Selvig

 Dr. Victoria “Tori” Sterling is one of Kentucky’s youngest equine veterinarians, but she knows her way around race horse injuries better than vets with twice her experience. Scrupulously honest in a world where rule-bending is normal, Tori has fought to earn her reputation. She’s also learned the hard way that her animal-focused lifestyle is too hard for any man to understand much less share—so she wastes no energy looking for love relationships.

Trainer Winton Crosby has finally made it to his dream destination: the venerable Churchill Downs. With a gift for getting the best from his horses, his goal is to reach a big stakes race. It’s no easy task, however, when every member of his young staff has a record. But Winn was once a troubled teen, and along with his love of horses, he loves “his kids” and will do anything to help them succeed as he has.

Winn knows immediately he wants Tori Sterling on his side. She’s straight-talking, funny, smart, and passionate, and she makes his ever-restless spirit feel like it’s found home. But when a Derby-bound colt is targeted by a saboteur, and illegal acts mount up on Churchill Downs’ backside, Winn and his stable of misfits are prime suspects. He must convince Tori he’s not behind a tangled web of sabotage and a strange horse doping scandal.

Tori finds herself in a partnership with Winn that’s half detective team and all unexpected passion. But they’re soon racing against time. Someone is desperate to eliminate Tori and Winn’s investigating any way possible, and the two have to find out who before both of them lose their careers, their lives or, worse, their chance at love.

 MISSING US by Traci Wooden-Carlisle

His youngest daughter now has a life and love he has always wanted for her and their relationship has healed enough for her to allow him to give her away during her wedding. He hopes the weeks he will spend in Chandler County to ensure her transition from her life and career in Chicago to Chandlerville before the nuptials will be enough to convince his wife…ex-wife of his love for her and hers for him.

Reina Fellows Nathan can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Her youngest daughter’s life is out of danger and Shauna is carving out her own path towards happiness. All Reina has to do is get through the weeks it will take to help her daughter plan her wedding and avoid her ex-husband. He nearly destroyed her once and despite some of the changes he’s recently made she dare not trust her heart to him.

Each day brings new challenges that work against her resolve to remain unaffected by her ex- husband’s attempts to court her again, but secrets, lies and a long-held pact that comes to light may make it impossible for a true reconciliation.

MISSING HOME by Stephany Tullis

A 21st century battle between good and evil.

Fire and brimstone, it is when an unknown epidemic threatens Chandlerville, Kentucky and its citizens. Despite his divinity training, newly appointed Chandler County pastor, Dr. Jared Johnson never intended to pastor a church despite his divinity training —not when his specialty is psychological profiling. Fate seems to have some other thoughts about the matter.

When Dr. Jared Johnson’s research project collapses, so does he. He tosses the funding rejection letter in his office wastebasket and his plans to marry the love of his life out the window.

The last thing he wants to do is return to his home town, Chandlerville, Kentucky. An unexpected call from his grandmother, a lifelong resident of the small town, convinces him that all things indeed happen for a reason and perhaps this is the right time to reestablish his roots and start anew.

When he arrives–single, with no intent to marry, he’s shocked to learn that the town has unanimously approved his pastoral appointment to the newly refurbished 100-year-old Baptist church. Despite his divinity training, Jared never intended to pastor a church—not when his specialty is psychological profiling.

As fate would have it, the evil spirits that begin to permeate the town and its good-hearted citizens shortly after his arrival challenge his technical skills, experience and community relationships. To complicate matters, a local angel finds herself in the eye of the storm causing Jared to re-evaluate his past and question his future.

About the Authors:

Cherime MacFarlane:

I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks. My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband’s chief mechanic’s helper and roadie. I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore. As a reporter for the Copper Valley Views, Cherime MacFarlane received a letter of commendation from the Copper River Native Association for fair and balanced reporting. Cherime won the Hardest Working Author Award from Author Classified.

Lizbeth Selvig:

Award-winning author Lizbeth Selvig writes heartwarming contemporary romance. Whether set in a small town, on a huge western ranch, or at a Kentucky racetrack, her strong, fun and funny characters don’t mind poking at societal norms even while they’re finding their ways home to family and love. Lizbeth turned to fiction writing after working as a newspaper journalist and magazine editor, and raising an equine veterinarian daughter (handy, since there are usually too many horses in her stories) and a talented musician son (also handy because she’s been known to write about rock stars). She shares life in Minnesota, where her first book series is set, with her best friend (aka her husband, Jan), an under-ridden gray Arabian gelding named Jedi, two human grandchildren, and her four-legged grandbabies of which there are over twenty, including a wallaby, three alpacas, a mammoth-eared donkey, a miniature horse, a pig, five dogs, six cats, and seven regular-sized horses (pics of all appear on her website www.lizbethselvig.com). In her spare time she loves to hike, quilt, read, and horseback ride. She also loves connecting with readers—so feel free to contact her any time!

Besides her romances, she is also a non-fiction writer with seven history books in print. She also has written and published two children’s books. She also writes under a pen name.

Tina has been married for forty-four years and lives in Northwestern Wisconsin. She has two children and five grandchildren.

Stephany Tullis:

In my world, there is no life without writing, traveling, family, music and my love of politics. My loves and interests are central to my writing. With this backdrop, regardless of the date or time of your visit, you will find family.

My world (my back-story) is guided by my faith and the inspiration I receive from God. Without exaggeration, family and relationships are the core of every book I write.

I love to travel and like me, my characters are always off and running and in so doing require me to research (and often visit) so many fascinating places.

I also love music—all kinds and I’m never surprised by what track finds its way to my personal playlists and a character’s ring tone, door chime, or car radio station.

People frown sometimes and don’t understand my love of politics, but I have a political administration background and thrived on and in my past government career. For me, it’s the people, the process and what democracy offers. As with life, my fictional towns and cities include mayors, governors, school board members, etc.

If you haven’t guessed, I love my world that allows me to not only live the life I love but to also share it with others.

It’s a romance story, has suspense and surprise, and with book two, became a women’s fiction series. 

I’m still a voracious reader, currently residing in a rural area of the mid-west. After living in various parts of the U.S. and traveling abroad, I recently moved into the very same home where I grew up. I enjoy country living: ours is a small community, and everyone knows everybody. The culture of the city also draws me in: the shopping, dining, and the opera and ballet.

I love traveling, especially to other countries, and I speak Spanish. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Hispanic Literature, and a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Merchandising. Home decorating is one of my favorite things. Of course I love to read, and I’m a published poet. I like baking pies and drinking ale. Oh, and I like playing cornhole, and I spend way more time than I should playing computer games.

My sidekick is a tiny Yorkshire terrier named Georgie Doodlebug. I call her GiGi. She’s my fur baby.

P.J. MacLayne:  Love on the Dunes

Sunny skies, sandy beaches, palm trees and swimsuits. It wasn’t like any Christmas Carena Galloway had ever known. She missed her family and worried about her relationship with her boyfriend, Aiden Wade. A picnic on the beach with friends was just the thing to distract her from her problems. Meeting a celebrity was a bonus.

But she never counted on attracting a stalker.

Stephany Tullis:  Baby Boomer Bash

Baby Boomers ONLY! No family allowed.

High school friends Sherry Mattison and Maddy Meriweather refuse to allow their adult children to ruin their love of Christmas and the family based traditions that are so near and dear to their hearts. Unlike Ebenezer Scrooge and the Grinch, they don’t decide to cancel this year’s Christmas, nor do they harden their hearts. Instead of presenting their annual plea for an extended family Christmas like those of the good old days, the baby boomers greet their families on Thanksgiving Day with a new attitude and a feisty festive spirit that includes a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner: pot luck!

Their daughters  are shocked but pleased when Christmas plans are  not discussed as the family watches the annual Thanksgiving Day parade. The guys were relieved that dessert was the focus of football half time and not  drawing names for the annual family Christmas gift exchange.
Sherry Mattison and Maddy Meriweather kick off their plans for their first annual Baby Boomer Christmas celebration with a Black Friday shopping spree. And then the thirty-day count-down begins!

Will the boomers’ plans implode when their families discover their plans for a holiday beach vacation in the Caribbean?

About Stephany Tullis:

In my world, there is no life without writing, traveling, family, music and my love of politics. My loves and interests are central to my writing. With this backdrop, regardless of the date or time of your visit, you will find family.

My world (my back-story) is guided by my faith and the inspiration I receive from God. Without exaggeration, family and relationships are the core of every book I write.

I love to travel and like me, my characters are always off and running and in so doing require me to research (and often visit) so many fascinating places.

I also love music—all kinds and I’m never surprised by what track finds its way to my personal playlists and a character’s ring tone, door chime, or car radio station.

People frown sometimes and don’t understand my love of politics, but I have a political administration background and thrived on and in my past government career. For me, it’s the people, the process and what democracy offers. As with life, my fictional towns and cities include mayors, governors, school board members, etc.

If you haven’t guessed, I love my world that allows me to not only live the life I love but to also share it with others.

After twenty years, Jess returns home to care for her ailing mother. Close proximity to the man she once loved who’d dumped her on the very day she expected a marriage proposal reawakens her broken heart and strengthens her vow to never put faith in a man.

By his own choice, Sam’s the most elusive bachelor in town, his walls of defense firmly in place. But when the feisty little brunette he dated in high school and college moves back, Sam needs to step up his game, stiffening those walls to concrete. True love? A forever union? What kind of idiot believes in that?

No matter which way Sam and Jess turn in their little home town, they run into each other. And stumbling under the mistletoe isn’t what either one needs.

The partnership she’s petrified to refuse and afraid to accept

As Chandlerville prepares for a series of local celebrations in honor of the annual Kentucky Derby in nearby Louisville, Kentucky, chaos ensues threatening to cancel the town’s festivities.

Rachel Blakely’s (editor of the Chandler County Chronicles), partnership with ex-NYC socialite, AJ Manning crumbles in the midst of their planning for the town’s Derby-related activities. AJ is the mayor’s wife and Rachel discovers that Fitzgerald Manning, the mayor’s father, has close ties to an unidentified conglomerate of farm investors who may be coercing local farmers to sell their land.

Jairo Aquino, aka Blue, a handsomely, mysterious newcomer is trusted by no one and appears to have an investment scheme of his own. Arriving in Chandler County from Miami, Florida, Aquino has decided to put Chandler County on the map. “His plan was air tight. He just had to find a few missing pieces.”

Rachel and Blue continue to cross paths until they reach a point of no return where they accept they can no longer ignore the sizzle of their interactions and their constricted heart strings that cause them to question the true nature of their relationship.

Can she trust him? Can he trust her? Can they together find the missing pieces?

~~Excerpt~~

CHAPTER 11

“Every decision you’ve made has brought you to where you are today… exactly where you are meant to be.”

~Unknown~

She woke to the silent sounds of nothingness but didn’t rise, searching instead for solace in the comfort of her bed. Refusing to open her eyes, she wiggled and scooted her body in the cocoon-like wrapping of her down-filled comforter. Her body luxuriated in and sought the protective assurance that her blankie offered. Assurance that she needed. Assurance that she was increasingly fearful without. Assurance that she could go forward. Assurance that her world wouldn’t disintegrate. Again.

In a further effort to fight the start of another day that she had no reason to believe would be better than yesterday, she shielded her eyes with her arm. Her thoughts rambled, twisted, and turned. Meditative breathing, prayerful enjoinders, and burying her head under her pillow failed. She wondered why experts raised false hope by guaranteeing results claiming research-based success stories. Meditation was the answer. Not! Prayer always worked. Not! Protect yourself! How? Her morning save thyself rituals failed. Again.

She succumbed to her despair, accepted the inevitable start of another day, and opened her eyes. The early morning sun greeted her through her sunflower yellow bedroom blinds. She lay still searching for meaning in the glittering rays.

After about five minutes, the rays shouted.

Get up off your butt! Face the music. What is the song of the day? Cry me a river?

Tears formed.

She fumbled for the pack of ciggies in her side table and rolled out of bed. What the heck? Why bother?

She tiptoed to the window and peeked through the blinds as though embarrassed that the universe heard her indignant retort.

She peered down at the town’s early morning greeting to the start of a Chandlerville, Kentucky morning. Drivers travelled at a higher than normal speed as they hurried to their jobs. Shop owners headed to their stores, preparing for their early morning customers. The vinyl blinds protected her much like her blankie and her one-bedroom studio apartment conveniently located above the CCC office, her second home but first love.

She adored everything about Chandlerville. Its Southern charm, the food, the rolling grassy landscape, the artistry… the friends she had made. Most importantly, she loved her job. She’d heard that the town was looking for someone to run the local newspaper at a large crafts festival in Berea, Kentucky a few years ago. She was writing an article on the annual Berea Crafts Festival for a travel magazine and ran into a colleague, a professor who taught at Berea College.

The rest was history. She lied to herself. Her first love was long ago buried but not forgotten. She lied to others. This time, no lies. Period. History would not repeat itself.

Blake Duncan shares all 

I’m fortunate enough to be involved with some very talented authors.  This particular time, ten others.  We have grouped together and wrote brand new short stories for a new box set we have coming out very soon, titled Stories of Sun, Sand and Sea – 11 Beaches – Anything Can Happen.  We’ve created the hashtag #11Beaches, feel free to retweet or share using that hashtag!

These short stories are set on a beach, and the beaches are all over the world.  And, we each selected two characters from the other authors in the anthology and used them in our stories as minor characters.  That was fun.  But, until #11Beaches releases, let’s enjoy an interview from Stephany Tullis’ character, Blake Duncan, from her story, Beach Baby Blues.  Oh, and Blake is one of the characters that I used in my story!!!!

1.    Q. What’s your super power?

A. That’s easy. Can’t believe you haven’t guessed.  My charisma. My charm. Women and men alike are dazzled by my good looks . My looks are like honey to bees…fragrant, tantalizing and sweet. People are drawn to me by my looks and bewitched by my charm. I’ve never lost a friend.

2.    Q. On what occasion, do you lie?

A: I need to clarify before I answer this question. In my business, I negotiate. I manage five bands. My job is to get my peeps the best gig I can get.  Representing them well can be tough especially at times when they may be competing for the same tour date. Getting that best deal is not always easy. I    have to do what I have to do. I hate it especially when I have to undercut one of  my bands for another. It can get tricky. You just have to understand the business.  And I do.

3.    Q. When and where were you the happiest?

A. Strange you should ask. If I had been asked this question last month, I don’t believe I would have had an answer. Just recently though…a few weeks ago, I ran into a childhood friend on a cruise ship. She was hosting her baby sister’s bachelorette party. Hadn’t see her in years–since high school. We had a few drinks on the ship. Some late night conversation. I had such a great time. Makes me wonder what my life would have been like, if I’d settled down with Shelby. Hmmmm.

4.    Q.What is your biggest regret?

A. Wow! You’re not going to believe this but my biggest regret is not having children. Of course, with my life style, it’s probably for the best. But I use to imagine myself with twins. A girl and a boy. Blakely and Duncan. They’re beautiful. Curly , deep copper colored hair and hazel eyes. And of course, they both love music.  She loves to sing and has such a range. And Duncan dominates the keyboard–like a Brian Culbertson.

5.    Q. What is your motto?

A. Love this question. I have a wall hanging in my music room that says: “For all of you who gossip about me: Thanks for making me the center of your world.” I don’t know to whom I should attribute the quote but I use it all the time. It’s the story of my life. I love what I do. I love my artists. Music. And traveling. I love cutting that deal. I mind my business and wish those who speculate about my success, to leave me the H alone–pardon my French.

6.    Q. Clothes in the hamper or on the floor?

A. My clothes go from the dry cleaner, to my suitcase, to my body and then, the floor. How’s that?

7. Q.Where do you see yourself in five years?

A. Five years older. Still charming. Haha. I’d like to think I’d be ready to settle down. Find me a special somebody–who loves music and maybe travel. Without the somebody, I see myself doing more of the same…traveling with my bands.
