Spring Reading ebook sale!

Funny thing about this ad. It was scheduled to run at a local movie theatre in the Spring of 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic hit, and everything closed down — so it never got much visibility. But we still like those cheery pink tulips, and we think a change of season deserves recognition, so we’re repurposing it here.


Since then, we’ve published a 3rd title, Absent, and put all our ebooks on sale at $2.99 each.

Here’s a link to the entire series to date. (A 4th title is in-the-works and will tell the tale of the grown daughter.)

You can also explore many other online stores for select purchases. This link takes you to the author’s website where you can learn more.


About our latest release:

ABSENT has an interesting origin, born from a love of color and fascination with anomalies related to it. Author Jill C. Baker revealed the inspiration that draws from a real-life encounter with a case of synesthesia. (“How Color Infused the Writing of Absent”) on her blog, “Between the Lines.” 

From Reedsy Discovery:

Featured Books


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 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 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
