Beth Dial Duke was born in Anniston, Alabama and lived on the Gulf Coast of Florida for many years. She is married to Jay and the proud mother of Jason and Savannah. The author of several prize-winning short stories, her work has been featured in Pearl: A Literary Magazine and included in the British anthology The Possibility of Bears. After a successful career in marketing, she is pursuing her first love: writing. Happily located in the scenic mountains of her home state, she lives with her family and eleven loyal chickens, two lovable dogs and a randomly affectionate cat. As a copyrighted jewelry designer and former vintage jewelry dealer, she is uniquely qualified to pen her book's opener, Jewels. It was her first work of fiction in 2008 and won second place in a national competition. In addition to song parodies, pithy letters and sometimes scathing news commentary, she writes a somewhat regular blog about anything and everything at bethdialduke.blogspot.com. She loves baking elaborate cupcakes, long walks to the nearby lake, sparkly things, great shoes, and will travel at the drop of a hat. Delaney's People is her widely acclaimed debut novel. The highly anticipated sequel, Don't Shoot Your Mule, was released November 23, 2012. For more information, please visit delaneyspeople.com or dontshootyourmule.com.

Hi there... I am new here - am still getting used to this forum. Yes, I would like to make more friends here. I only published one book before this one (this in Iron Ore Processing, technical but property of the company I was working for).

Welcome to Book Blogs! I'm Kate, a young adult author. My second novel, Reaping Me Softly, has just been released by Omnific Publishing.
Ever since a near-death-experience on the operating table, seventeen-year-old Arianne Wilson can see dead people. Just as she’s learned to accept her new-found talents, she discovers that the boy she’s had a crush on since freshman year, Niko Clarke, is a Reaper.
At last they have something in common, but that doesn’t mean life is getting any easier. All while facing merciless bullying from the most powerful girl in school, Arianne’s world is turned upside down after Niko accidentally reaps the soul of someone she loves. This sends them both into a spiral that threatens to end Arianne’s life. But will Niko break his own Reaper’s code to save her? And what would the consequences be if he did?
