TOURIST TRAPPED is available!

CoverWhat a whirlwind–but nothing is more exciting than holding your book in your hands. Even if so far it’s just been the proof!

When I have a chance to catch my breath, I’d love to share with you a few snippets of life as an “almost author,” which I lived until last night at midnight!

But enough of all of that, are you interested in the book?

Here’s the scoop: 

  • For the Kindle version of Tourist Trapped, click here.
  • The paperback version of Tourist Trapped is available on Amazon here.
  • The paperback can also be purchased in my estore. Use the promotional code T5MR2QSB for a discount.

Where next?

After three months, I’ll make the ebook available for Nook, etc. More details to come. You’ll also be able to pick up the paperback at more online stores over the next few months. Again, more details to come.

And, for an autographed copy?

I have a shipment of books on the way. Once I figure out the cost of shipping, I’ll be able to determine the price of the book. I’m hoping to be able to offer a discount.


I’m planning to hold a book party in the Milwaukee, WI, area later in September. And, my dear friend and former classmate, June, has kindly offered to arrange a signing party in Central Wisconsin. Check back for details!

I’m on pre-order!

CoverWell…not me, but my book is! The Kindle edition of TOURIST TRAPPED can be pre-ordered this very moment on Amazon.

Lauren Kessler and Amanda Sloane in TOURIST TRAPPED

Dialogue-pict-6The sounds of a woman choking echoed through the phone. “You? Engaged? To Matthew Baird?” Lauren said. “You? Engaged?”

“Yeah, well, under duress.”

“I can’t, in my wildest dreams, imagine a situation where you’d agree to marry. What did he do, threaten to impale you with a red-hot pitchfork? Press a razor-sharp machete against your throat?”

“He dropped to one knee last night at his grandmother’s ninetieth birthday party, in front of about a hundred of his relatives. His grandmother, who’s about to keel over at any second, looked so happy. I just, I just couldn’t refuse—stop laughing. This isn’t funny.”

“If only the other men had known, all they had to do was to pop the question over the last, feeble breaths of their family matriarch.”
