  Looking Back


As winter settles in, I'm reflecting back on an amazing autumn.
Bestselling author Kathleen Ernst When Fiddling With Fate went to press, Mr. Ernst and I decided that the tenth Chloe Ellefson historic sites mystery deserved a really big launch. So we packed the calendar, traveled farther than ever, and added new events to old favorites.  
As always, it was a joy to see and hear from so many readers. Some were long-time friends; some new. Chloe readers are  the best, and we're very grateful for your support.  
  Looking Forward
Mr. Ernst here. The end-of-year gift giving season is upon us! Have I mentioned that Kathleen's books make great gifts?
You know her popular Chloe Ellefson mystery series (available in trade paperback and as Kindle and Nook ebooks). 
  Chloe Ellefson Mystery series book covers.    Front cover of A Settlers Year 
A Settler's Year: Pioneer Life Through The Seasons, chosen to represent Wisconsin at the National Book Festival, also makes a great gift! It's richly illustrated with beautiful photos of Old World Wisconsin, where Chloe works. (Available in hardcover and for Kindle and Nook).  

They are available to you through independent booksellers and online from Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, Books-A-Million, Google, Indigo Canada, Kobo, Target, and others.

Or if you'd like to have Kathleen sign and personalize some Chloe books for you, consider one of these events.

I always welcome these shortest of days when the world seems to catch its breath. I love candles glowing against the darkness, and all that they symbolize.  
Mr. Ernst and I (and our feline muse Eliza Jane) wish you the peace of the season.
Warm Regards,
