Need some summer reading? Counterfeits: An Art Theft Romantic Suspense, is on sale for $.99 for the Kindle, June 22-28: 

Painter Jenny Kinley has spent the last decade struggling in the New York art world. Her grandmother’s sudden death brings her home to New Mexico, but inheriting the children’s art camp her grandmother ran is more of a burden than a gift. How can she give up her lifelong dreams of showing her work in galleries and museums?
 
Rob Caruso, the camp cook and all-around handyman, would be happy to run the camp with Jenny. Dare he even dream of that, when his past holds dark secrets that he can never share? When Jenny’s father reappears after a decade-long absence, only Rob knows where he’s been and what danger he’s brought with him.
 
Jenny and Rob face midnight break-ins and make desperate escapes, but the biggest danger may come from the secrets that don’t want to stay buried. In the end, they must decide whether their dreams will bring them together or force them apart.

One reviewer said, "Counterfeits is the kind of romantic suspense novel I have enjoyed since I first read Mary Stewart."

"Use Your Villain: On the surface, this may sound obvious. The whole point of a villain is to make your hero’s life difficult, right? But I’ve found that it’s sometimes easy to forget about the villain when you’re focused on the hero’s actions. The villain sets something in motion and then disappears.:

An important message from and to the geek male. Your Princess Is in Another Castle: Misogyny, Entitlement, and Nerds http://thebea.st/SbW2V8
Nerdy guys aren’t guaranteed to get laid by the hot chick as long as we work hard. There isn’t a team of writers or a studio audience pulling for us to triumph by getting the girl.

Kris Bock on Beyond Dogs and Cats: "Raising falcons is an intense, time-consuming, and expensive hobby, so I don’t plan to get into falconry myself. But as an author, I could do the next best thing – I could write about it."

One of my "Kris Bock" books for adults is on sale for the Kindle. If you have friends who enjoy novels of romance and mystery, please let them know. 
What We Found is on sale for $.99, through Saturday afternoon.

Finding a dead body changes a person.
 
22-year-old Audra Needham is back in her small New Mexico hometown. She just wants to fit in, work hard, and help her younger brother. Going for a walk in the woods with her former crush, Jay, seems like a harmless distraction.
 
Until they stumble on a body.
 
Jay, who has secrets of his own to protect, insists they walk away and keep quiet. But Audra can't simply forget what she's seen. The woman deserves to be found, and her story deserves to be told.
 
More than one person isn't happy about Audra bringing a crime to life. The dead woman was murdered, and Audra could be next on the vengeful killer's list. She’ll have to stand up for herself in order to stand up for the murder victim. It’s a risk, and so is reaching out to the mysterious young man who works with deadly birds of prey. With her 12-year-old brother determined to play detective, and romance budding in the last place she expected, Audra learns that some risks are worth taking – no matter the danger, to her body or her heart.
 
“Another action-packed suspense novel by Kris Bock, perhaps her best to-date. The author weaves an intriguing tale with appealing characters. Watching Audra, the main character, evolve into an emotionally-mature and independent young woman is gratifying.” Reader Ellen R.

Doctors may be good but the overall experience was terrible. They didn't have any information from our PCP. We had to come back to see a different doctor, because the first one wasn't the right expert. Then they didn't handle the insurance billing properly, and multiple calls have resulted in no paperwork being sent to insurance.
