Baskets for Mothers

$.99 THE BASKET MAKERS WIFE ENDS 4/30. Get yours now!


Now .99: THE BASKET MAKER'S WIFE (BOOK 1): KINDLE/UK/iBOOKS/KOBO.

Neat Mother’s Day Gift: One of my longtime readers (initials T.C. :)) is giving her mother The Basket Maker’s Wife (trade paper) for Mother’s Day, May 8. By that time, The Egg Basket, the second in The Basket Series will also be published. I am considering how to design a Mother’s Day gift card from me for her mother. (Shh!)

The lovely covers of this basket series, created by designer NajlaQamberDesigns fall right into place with stories for women who believe in love and happiness. The Egg Basket features Lynn Wallberg, the necessary link between Nora Elliott and Jessie Holbrook. Elderly Jessie, the owner of The Basket Shop, will not go to her beloved husband, Virgil, until she knows her legacy will be continued.

Nora could make Jessie's dream happen, but her life is in turmoil. Lynn, a woman like and unlike Nora, will help…. Watch for The Egg Basket to see how believing and love can happen to a woman who has given up on those dreams—for herself. That would be Lynn…


This .99 sale on The Basket Maker’s Wife is ending when The Egg Basket is published. Be sure to get the first in the series and/or trilogy at this discount price  as it will send returned to 4.99. We’re working on launch promotions  now, and several people are now included in my beta readers and a ARC promotion group. I am trying to come up with a snappy title for this enthusiastic group of longtime readers. Any suggestions welcome. Just send me a note and tell me about yourself and what you like about my books, your favorite one, etc..

What's that line, "beyond our control"?
We should know within the next few days the firm launch date of THE EGG BASKET. Life interfered and I'm doing my best to catch up. Before life interfered, I had set up tentative promotions. The nice thing about having friends is: they stepped in to help.

Some exciting things have happened though, including a starting formation of beta readers and ARC people. I haven't decided what to call this group yet. Many responded from my NEWSLETTER, thrilling me, and are longtime readers. I sent out a few dishcloths, I tried to crochet. I'm not very good, but people seem to like them anyway. They do have mistakes. One person liked the blue and green combination, which is my favorite, too.

Recipients seemed appreciative, even with all my crochet mistakes. And several are waiting for THE EGG BASKET before they publish their reviews.

Then I had ordered a podcasting microphone recommended by THE CREATIVE PENN, whose podcasting I very much enjoy. If you're a writer, you will want to sign up for Joanna's podcast. The microphone is working great on Dragon dictation. I had used Dragon before with a PC, but had switched to a Mac.

I tested the microphone on a podcast, and have no idea where that podcast went, but hopefully this galaxy. That scared me. I'll stay off of podcasting until I know what happens to it when it leaves my computer. I do think that if you want to podcast you do have to have a certain gift of gab. I probably don't have that. But it's interesting.

This morning Joel Friedlander, The Book Designer, posted his blog about five necessary fonts, and I'm off to get them from FontSquirrel.

MEANWHILE: You could join my ENEWSLETTER? Lots of good stuff happening prior and during a Book Launch.

You see many distractions there are, and shouldn't be, just before a book is launched?

REVIEWS:
The Best Reviews: "Tense romantic suspense thriller."

Fresh Fiction.com:
If you want a good thriller, this is the book. From the get go, Cait London leads you through the darker side of a young woman who lost her way. The characters made the book wonderful and creepy at the same time. I was so caught up in the story I couldn't put it down until I got to the end. I really can't wait for Cait's next book.

Joyfully Reviewed: 
Flashback is an excellent example of romantic suspense done right. The sexual tension between Kyle and Rachel is obvious from the beginning. I quickly became involved not only in their developing romance, but also in the mystery surrounding Mallory's death. I have been fan of Cait London since her early Silhouette days. I look forward to what Ms. London has in store for the future. Flashback packs a punch!

 Davenport Books Examiner: "...enjoyable read, leading to a surprising, but excellent ending."

THE BASKET MAKER'S WIFE (Bk 1):
 Contemporary women's fiction. For twenty-two years, Nora Elliott and her sons have lived in the small Ozarks town of Mill Haven. She's hidden her shameful past, but her nightmares won't let her escape. With two grown sons, no-nonsense Nora has one goal—to care for the elderly woman she adores, intuitive Jessie Holcomb, and Jessie's beloved Basket Shop. Then a young woman on-the-run arrives, and the three women's lives unite, changing Nora's forever... As if there's not enough changes in Nora's life, it's not menopause she's dealing with, rather a baby from the one night with younger Dan Beringer who has unsuccessfully pursued her for years, plus her own arrested sexuality. Add one son who uncovers the Elliotts' ugly past, and another son, who hates her for it. Amid a cast of characters who love her, Nora fearfully faces the past, a new full life, and the terror of a shocking gift that has waited for her....

BE MINE:
 1881. Hardened Sam Taggart is back in Montana Territory to make his business fortune. But first, he has to provide care for his old-coot father and sister-brat who live on the run-down ranch. Desperate to make his fortune, Sam hires neat as a pin, her red hair in braids, virginal Emma Recht, the daughter of a German immigrant. Cleaning, baking, knitting her socks for sale and trading with the ranch’s passersbys, Emma is thrilled to set off on her own money-making venture, but Sam (with his hair part just-so) is no delight. Captivated by this curvy, innocent busy-bee “beserker”, fighting-tough Sam is incensed when Emma fearlessly steps in to protect him against men poachers who would have her socks and other things. He wants her for himself in a marriage of convenience, but Emma knows she is not the society city-wife Sam needs.
