Welcome to another awesome Monday! 
Today, I am hosting L G Keltner's cover reveal for her upcoming release 


A novella to be released on 
December 1, 2015 

Just in time for Christmas!


Dani Finklemeier has decided to write a self-help book about how to take over the world, but she’s not sure where to start.  After all, she’s only seventeen and looking for a better way to make money than babysitting.  She buys a self-help book that promises to teach her how to write a self-help book in the hope of getting the job done.

Not that it’ll be easy to get any work done this holiday season.  Her family is staying at the house for Christmas, and fights break out almost immediately.  Dani also has to deal with the fallout from an unexpected kiss with her best friend Seth and the feelings that go along with it.  On edge around her family and unsure how to interact with the one person she’s trusted with everything in the past, she can only take what inspiration she can from the crazy circumstances surrounding her and see what happens.

One way or another, it should be an interesting holiday.


L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband.  Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six.  Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good. 

Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.

You can typically find L.G. lurking around her blog, on Twitter, or on her Facebook page.

From November 9 - 16 & in honor of 

Lady Enigmatic - Yolanda Renee's

 crime thriller mystery Murder, Madness and

 Love is on sale‬ for 99 Cents‬!

Murder, Madness and Love
Sunlight blazes on an empty canvas.
Arctic winds gather snowflakes on a frosty window ledge as a statuesque form appears. She moves past a table littered with papers. Headlines splash news of murder, but it’s the photo of another young woman with features mirroring her own that draws her attention.
A different headline peeks from underneath the Anchorage Times.
Wealthy Businessman Dies in Car Crash … BLACK WIDOW SUSPECTED!
Graphic images swirl through her head and a tear rolls down her cheek. She drifts toward an easel and a trembling hand dips a sable brush into a palette of paint.
The Westminster doorbell chimes. The brush slips and blood-red paint stains the floor.
Detective Steven Quaid waits. His Tlingit, Indian features carved from granite, mask his Irish passion …
Will he arrest her this time?
All fingers point to her guilt.
But, is she guilty of this cunning plot? Or just a victim of circumstantial evidence?
The door opens …
His eyes lock on hers …
His heart races …
Hers skips a beat.

And even more exciting news via:


The Winner of the $5 Amazon Gift Card & an eBook copy of both Murder Mysteries
Murder, Madness & Love 
Memories of Murder

    1. You're most welcome! Congratulations! Your book should get much exposure today, this first day of the Realms Faire! I've seen it everywhere!

  2. Congrats to LG! It's such a fun cover. And good luck tomorrow, Lady Enigmatic! I'll cheer you on. :)

  3. Great cover! Sure sounds like a fun one.

    Never even knew there was such a thing as the Realms Faire either.

    1. Hi Pat:
      Then you learned something new today! Such fun, I've seen you've visited all the site's! Good luck, a winner you shall surely be!

  4. Congrats to LG - it sounds like a really fun book!

    1. Hi Tyrean, and she's already planning the series!

  5. LOL I have to go with the third comment. I can totally believe Lady Enigmatic may have been a cutpurse. :D Such a fun word!
    Congrats to LG on what looks like such a fun read. Great cover!

    1. Lady Enigmatic, is a most mysterious lady!
      Thanks Julie!

  6. Good luck with your joust. Sounds like an interesting book. Will look out for it.

  7. Fun cover, LG!
    Will champion you on your jousting day, Yolanda.

  8. Holy cow! Lots of stuff going on... deals to be had, stuff to participate in. That cover is adorable and I love the book title.

    1. Today is the day for announcements, but damn the NaNo is sitting quiet. Got to get back to work. :)

  9. My horse refuses to let me joust. He reminds me of the last time I tried and slithered off his back before I even started. Seriously. And let me tell you, horses have some interesting facial expressions. We've agreed not to joust altho I can go for a ride. :-)

    Now that is an interesting cover but a cute premise. Bet there is lots of laughter there too. After dealing with my huge family I should have, at least, conquered several planets by now. :-)

    Sia McKye Over Coffee

    1. Hi Sia, the horse will fare much better than Lady Enigmatic will. LOL
      LG, is so imaginative!
      And conquer you will!

  10. Such a cute an funny cover.

    Good luck in the joust.

    1. Thanks Diane, she did a good job. And I'll need all the help I can get!

  11. I tolerate my family fairly well since I live in the West and they are in the East. Distance makes the heart grow fonder--or something like that.

    Tossing It Out

  12. Hey Yolanda! Hey L.G. Love your premise, L.G. Sounds like such fun!
