Kelli’s Quill - Big End-of-Year Issue

Hi everyone!

I hope 2014 was a good year for everyone and you’re all enjoying the holiday season. This month in the Quill, I’m giving readers year-end recap and links to great stuff! Let’s get started…

Dangerous Indenture
Eager to escape her past in Ireland, Shauna Farrow signs on to become an indentured servant to Joshua Stewart, a wealthy man in Pennsylvania Colony. But a life of servitude quickly turns to drudgery, and her hopes for starting over and creating a better life for herself are waning—until she meets her master’s roguish son, Ashton. 

Shauna fights her growing attraction to Ashton, torn between propriety and acting on her emotions. But amidst their flirting, something dark stirs. Shauna soon discovers why no other servants will work for the strange Stewart family.

Dangerous Indenture is available in ebook format from:

Peering into 2015
A lot of people have asked me what I’m working on and want to know what they can expect in 2015. Although I have nothing concrete finished, I am busy with several projects. 

Currently, I’m writing a book on… how to write. (Don’t worry, it won’t be a boring English-class-type book.) It will include a lighthearted approach to the basics of storytelling, creating characters, and plotting, plus writing tips, and fun exercises. 

After that, I’ll be revising a full-length historical romance (an untitled Western set in Nebraska). And I have several ideas for more contemporary, historical, and gay romances.

I’m also writing a few horror short stories– so I think I have my work cut out for me in 2015!
