News / September Giveaways!

I wanted to share that I’m working on a new book–Touched by Demons. It’s the fourth book in the Sentinel Series and it’s Barrie’s story. She’s Luke Paxton’s sister and first appeared in Touched

“It started as a beautiful, sunny Saturday, with the air so clear and crisp, one couldn't help but inhale deep breaths of the cleansing freshness, and feel as if a multitude of God's benevolent blessings must be shining down upon the entire world. Terrorism, disease, poverty and hunger, grief and despair were distant threads of reality, too dim to possibly exist.”

Catherine Spangler Hello Cathie! Waving madly! All is well with me, and I hope the same for you. Yes! I have the rights back to the Sentinel books (SF romance) and will be re-releasing them, starting with Shielder and Shadower this summer. I'm really excited! I would love any reviews you want to put out there, and I look forward to kibitzing books and authors with you on Goodreads :-)

Cathiecaffey Catherine, what a joy to find your friendship request! And thrilled you are here on Goodreads! I miss reading you! And hope you well?!?! Will you be re-releasing your books into ebooks? I'd love to have all over again (and ebooks pages don't fall out after re-reading, smile). I shall, in time, catch up writing/rating reviews on books I read long before, including yours! Again great to have you at Goodreads!
