Snow!!!!



I don't think my deck looks like a good place for a BBQ right now!

It's been snowing non-stop since yesterday morning, and it's still snowing. I don't know what the official tally is up here, but I think we're into FEET at this point. It's going to take some serious digging to get me out of here for booksignings.

Good excuse to curl up with a good book. I've received a few sighting reports for The Gift. Happy reading!

Halloween & It's a Book!

This is release week for The Gift, which is--officially--on sale tomorrow. It seems like it's been forever, and I thank you all for your patience and support. If you'd like to order an autographed copy, please contact this local bookseller, where I'll be signing on 11/7, and she will have me personalize it and send it to you by US Mail. bethstec@aol.com or call 719-471-7545 Otherwise, you should be able to find the book in your usual haunts--online and brick and mortar. If you don't see it, please ask. That's one of the best things you can do to keep authors at work supplying you with new reads. Supply and demand...

Since The Gift is a suspense and a ghost story, it seems appropriate that it be released the week of Halloween. On that note, I would love to hear your ghost stories. Please share them with us here on the blog for all to enjoy.

The usual shameless self promo follows. :) Again, thank you! It's a book at last! I think the dedication page says it all....


“Readers will rejoice at the return of one of the romance genre’s special talents! Stover is back and jumping right into the romantic suspense game, while giving it a paranormal twist. Stover’s heroine is competent yet damaged, both by the past and her ‘gift.’ This melting pot of murder mystery, passion and ghosts makes for an outstanding storytelling stew!” HOT
~ 4 ½ Stars! Jill Smith, RT Book Reviews

“Thrilling romantic suspense at its best! THE GIFT is an extremely exciting thriller full of the extraordinary; fascinating and exceptionally entertaining. Deb Stover has a gift for capturing and keeping your attention throughout the entire novel. The story is unique and unlike other stories of this nature. I found this an extremely difficult book to put down. Each page turns itself. A must-read if you want that ‘different’ but really exciting thriller.”
~Kay Quintin, reviewer - Fresh Fiction

“FIVE STARS! From the moment I began reading I knew that I would not be stopping until every last page had been read. The very first sentence sunk its deep hooks within me and pulled me into Beth's story. (I admit that I did not go kicking and screaming either.) The story is very well written, with nothing I would consider to be ‘over the top’ or unbelievable. Backgrounds of the main and secondary characters are well developed and their emotions seem genuine. I honestly believe this to be a fantastic story and Deb Stover carries it off with her usual √©lan.” ~ Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

“Deb Stover spins a fantastic tale of love and mystery...filled with sexual tension that will keep you turning pages in anticipation...” ~Dyan Grant, NovelTalk Reviews

"A real page-turner..." New York Times best-selling author, Lisa Jackson

"An exciting romantic suspense thriller..." ~Harriet Klausner

"This story had me totally absorbed. Several times I was so engrossed in the story, that when I heard a noise, I nearly jumped out of my skin. This book is vintage Deb Stover!"
~ Kathy Boswell, Fresh Fiction



Now for your ghost stories.... :)

Boo!

Happy reading.

Love,
Deb
