THE SIMPLER is now available for purchase online, including Barnes and Noble (the paperback) and Amazon, (pb and e-book), and soon from me—when I receive my shipment toward the end of the month. If you would like an inscribed copy, contact me. Of course, your local book store can place an order, or ask your library to order one. In January, I’ll make copies available locally in Spearfish, Sundance, and Hulett. For now, I’m laying low during the pandemic, but hope to do readings by late summer.

Back cover matter

Writing and publishing three novels in six years (among other events) has tested perseverance and intestinal fortitude, but I found the formatting mechanics strangely calming—for the most part. There were the lost files, the mixed-up files, the initial disorganization and usual frustrations, but practice, practice, practice led me out of the thorny woods, that and my husband Jeff’s patience. Dear friend and artist, Candace Christofferson, worked up the mermaid image, beautifully, at my request. You see, my late father-in-law, John B., once carved from wood an intriguing piece, of a mermaid, and Candace’s model. Those familiar with the series will recognize the significance. Readers of the first novel may note the backbone reference. Meanwhile, I am waiting for the first editorial review to be posted—fingers crossed.

I hope you continue Senga’s journey with me, and if you are inclined, please leave a review. Below is the e-book cover version and information. I remain thankful beyond measure for this work at this time, and especially for you readers. May you and yours stay well and pass a warm Yuletide. Don’t forget to watch for Jupiter and Saturn’s alignment in the south around December 21, a true heavenly event. May Peace, Love, and Joy prevail~
