Summer Update

eBook Sale! Special Summer Pricing

It’s time for beach reading, so in the spirit of the season, we’ve launched an eBook sale for Tory Roof and Silver Line. Both books are now available at $3.99 each (instead of $5.99) on Amazon, Apple Books, Barnes & Noble, Google Play and Kobo. Just search Jill C. Baker, using the middle initial.

Other doings

We recently participated in the New England Authors Expo in Haverhill, MA, and met many terrific people. At our booth, we awarded a $25 Amazon gift certificate to an entrant drawn at random by event organizer, Chris Obert. The winner is:  Nicole Raheja, who has written a book called Redefining Positive. We can’t help but wonder if her positive thinking was a factor in her luck.

Meanwhile, Book No. 3 in the Sutherland Series (Absent) is in the editing stage. Our goal is to release it by late summer or early fall.

We’re also happy to announce that Tory Roof was listed among the “Best Books Launched This Week” (Historical Fiction category) by Reedsy Discovery. Thanks to the readers who “UpVoted” it.

For those who missed us at the Authors Expo, we posted a few photos from the show and a link to a presentation of “Visual Excerpts” on our blog. Here’s to a great summer — and hopefully the joy of writing by a lake.

Featured Books

TORY ROOF

TORY ROOF is a woman’s story – an unexpected romance and account of bravery – that pits logic against longing. The story takes Sarah Sutherland from the safety of her contemporary New England home into the arms of a fiery Revolutionary War agitator. In the process, she discovers her own independence and why she was chosen to traverse time. The present-day plot unfolds throughout the course of a year and dovetails with actual events in 1765. In trying to reconcile the two, Sarah learns that people around her are not who they seem, and that greed can infiltrate even the noblest agendas.

SILVER LINE

SILVER LINE follows a casual college couple who discovers they can revert to their former, older selves living as a miner and dancehall girl in a bawdy 1860s Colorado town. Jared Sutherland (Sarah’s son) had repressed these precognitive skills, until Alexa insists they are a gift. He finally agrees to use them to help solve a modern museum heist—and to travel back in time, lured by the romance of their alter-egos and adventures in the untamed West. Together, the twosome discovers that clues to the present lie in the past as their innocent attraction matures into something more.

ABSENT

ABSENT invites the average man – or the woman who loves one – to embark on a quest for self-improvement. When Carter Sutherland (Sarah’s husband and think tank executive) meets the lovely Tracee Green, a synesthete who sees words as colors, little does he know she will take him on four sensory-rich journeys that alter his black-and-white world. Regressed through several personas, past and future, he gains emotional intelligence and personal insight that helps him at work. But he also stumbles into black-market dealings and a situation he can’t escape.

The author often wondered what it would be like to simply disappear and do something else — thus the motivation for the Sutherland Series

Binding It Together

New England Authors Expo 2019

      On June 29th, we had a nice opportunity to meet fellow authors and publishers, as well as readers, at the New England Authors Expo. The event was held at a new venue this year — the Hartleb Technology Center on the Northern Essex Community College campus in Haverhill, MA. One of the things we had at our booth was a loop of “visual excerpts.” These we built by creating screens/jpegs of text and images either taken directly from the book (as the cover images, seen above) as well as photos fitting to to the theme. We thought … Continue reading New England Authors Expo 2019
