My Favorite Authors Now

   I like my history tangled with murder and mayhem and no one does it better than Anne Perry. I am addicted to her two Victorian series. Her characters are wonderfully real -- flawed, but intelligent and likable. She keeps you guessing til the end when Thomas and Charlotte Pitt expose the culprit. Or Monk and Hester bring the malefactor to justice whether they are noble-born or from the crime infested alleys of Seven Dials. Her re-occuring secondary characters enhance the story with their own distinct voice.
   C.S. Harris has a series called Sebastian St. Cyr Mysteries. Sebastian is a noble man, in the Regency period, who likes to solve murders to the dismay of his father and many others in the ton. Ms.Harris is superb at adding twists and turns that keep her readers captivated and eager for the next book.
   I have other favorites I'll share at another time.

Amazon Purchases Avalon

   Surprise! It truly was a surprise to find out last week that Avalon had been sold to Amazon. I am anticipating information from Amazon this week as to what this transition will mean.
   For all you Avalon readers out there we understand that our books will still be the same family-friendly style you are used to. As you know our books have not  been obtainable for e-readers but with Amazon that all should change, so they will be available to more of you.
   I am eager to find out what exciting new prospects are waiting, but for now I will keep writing on my present 'work in progress'.
