A Woman Down Under Series

A Woman Down Under Series Mock up 3Something the fans have said (and I do listen) is that they hate to wait for a new book in a series to come out.  Once their interest is engaged, they want to know what is going to happen in the next part of the series, right away, not to have to wait.  Well, that’s where this series is a little different.  These are the first four in what I hope will become a fantastic and captivating series for my fans, new and old, to follow.

See, not only is this series new, but it takes place in about the 1850’s of Australia, in the Outback and is told by four different women from their perspective.  No, it isn’t the same story told four different times, but rather their stories told from their points of view and what happens to them.

You can buy any of these and read them in any order too, which I thought might be a plus, another thing that readers sometimes worry about, did they get all of them in the series, are they in order.

* I’m releasing them on the same day, so you don’t have to wait.

* I’m releasing them as novellas, in paperback, on the same day too!

* I’m releasing them on Kindle Unlimited, something I haven’t done in ages, so you can get them potentially for free if you have joined their program.

If you aren’t on Kindle Unlimited, and that is okay, they are only $4.99 *US and really for under $5 you can’t believe the adventure you are about to embark upon!

I really want people to try out my writings, some who might not have read my historical romances before.  Also, my current fans will have this new and awesome series to enjoy as they already know I write detailed and dramatic stories.

So don’t wait, pre-order your copy today from Amazon!

Btw, there are more already written and waiting to come out, but, one at a time, okay?  It’s making my editor’s hair turn gray!  Lol.  I have been working on this for a while because I wanted to try this concept of releasing the series all at once.

Only these first four will be on Kindle Unlimited, the rest, as they are available will come out normally (for me) and randomly and be available on all the platforms.

Enjoy!

So you write lesbian fiction…

When I tell strangers I write lesbian fiction, they equate this with erotica or porn.

Let me explain, porn is visual, so no, I don’t write porn.

In my early years, I wrote erotica (rarely now, because I’ve been there, done that).  However, I like to think the love scenes in my books are definitely not fade-to-black.

It’s amazing how many people assume being a lesbian or writing their stories equates to writing erotica or in their ignorant mind’s, porn…do they really think all lesbians are promiscuous?

Last year in Provincetown I was asked what I wrote, as I was deliberately not saying lesbian fiction…my bland answer told around a fire was, “smut.”  It went over very well, we still chuckle at that reply, but who really cares if I do or don’t?

Sometimes I don’t even tell people anything about the lesbian part, I just say fiction…romance, mystery, action-adventure, but mostly drama.  I’m telling about human lives and they just happen to be lesbians.  I’m not ashamed that I write, it simply is not always about the lesbian, it’s about the story.

In fact, with this in mind, I don’t always put the tags on it when I publish it.  I put it out there to the ‘straight’ world, have picked up some great ‘straight’ followers who appreciate a well-written story.  One reviewer wrote on one of my books, it would have been a great story if I just didn’t have the lesbians in it.

I write what I know, from my own perspective.  It isn’t everyone’s view on life.  I’m telling about a marginalized part of our society that needs a voice.  I’m telling their stories.  I hope I give a well-rounded story where lives go on and the viewer, reader, gets to participate….there just happens to be lesbians in the story.

So, on Lesbian Visibility 2019…be out there and visible!

Ships ~ 2nd edition

Okay, before you discard this blog as ‘oh, just another 2nd edition’ let me tell you this is the LAST one!  We finally got through my tremendous backlog of books, had them tweaked, edited, and even new covers made for many.  This was my first published book, my first published anything actually.

I wrote SHIPS in 2003 over the course of two weeks.  A story had come to me so strong that I felt it was like an exorcism to get it out of my brain and onto the computer.  I thought about the plot, the story line, while I worked.  Fortunately, I was self-employed running an international company and could multi-task like that.  I didn’t know if I was a lesbian, but a story about lesbians is what came to me and the result was SHIPS.  Something told me, either finish it ASAP or you will NEVER finish it…I met my first girlfriend after a week of writing….

SHIPS was tweaked many times before I got up the courage to actually publish it in 2011.  I didn’t have editors then and did the ‘best’ I could at the time.  Still, it’s a strong story and now that it has been edited, even makes me more nostalgic for the familiar story.

If this is your first read of this story, I hope you enjoy it.  If you’ve read it before, it’s now not really different, but definitely better.

Ships Front CoverHave you ever met a person that you just were in sync with?  You knew immediately that they were someone special for you?  Would you know how lucky you were?  Would you know they were the one?

What do you do when you fall in love with a woman, when you thought you were straight?  Dealing with this unusual relationship brings a lot of “firsts” to Joan’s life.

Joan is a world-renowned artist who has always identified as straight, has three children, and is content with her life when she meets Grace, a respected psychiatrist who also happens to be a lesbian.  Joan is conflicted and has to deal with her feelings, the incredible woman she finds herself in love with, and the relationship that occurs over the next twenty-years.

Survivors ~ NEW

I am pleased to FINALLY announce my latest release SURVIVORS!G.jpg

For some, the world would end with the dropping of the bombs.  For others, a select few, it would present an opportunity to show their true mettle.  Those who will take on the challenge to live without, make do, and subsist on, are the survivors.

Jodi was one of the few.  She knew what was coming.  She read the signs, and she had friends in low places who kept her informed.  She bought a cabin in the middle of nowhere, fixed it up, and warned her closest friends and family that the time would come to abandon the big cities, to hide and seclude yourself for the safety of your family and everyone closest to you.

Krista was her partner, her best friend, and her wife at a time when states didn’t recognize same-sex marriage.  Krista coped with her mate’s compulsions by recognizing that indulging her was the best way to maintain a harmonious union.  After all, they could afford it.  Little did she realize that Jodi was destined to be the savior of them all.

Finding that things were much worse than everyone had speculated didn’t surprise Jodi.  But it would forever alter her family’s world view and transform them into something they hadn’t realized they were destined to become…SURVIVORS!

Available directly from my website as well as with all the links so you can get your copy.

Small Town Angel, 2nd edition

Front Cover

Small towns are notorious for secrets … but what if you bring your secrets with you?

Amy Adams arrives in Northpoint, Wisconsin on a Greyhound bus.  Small towns are well known for not taking to strangers, but THIS stranger decides to stay.

Amy has a look around and to her, it ‘feels’ like home. She rents a cabin in the woods outside of town and proceeds to look for a place to open a store.  Renting to own from one of the locals, she soon finds herself making friends and making waves.  She won’t discuss where she is from and has nothing to say about her past.

People are extremely curious. This Southern Belle has them talking.

Abby Shipman, the Chief of Police in this neck of the woods, is intrigued by the decidedly mysterious and straight redheaded whirlwind that has blown into town. It’s strange that she won’t talk about her past, and she is certainly uncomfortable around Abby … or is it cops in general?

This was different kind of story. I did like the storyline of both characters. I kept wondering what was up with Amy. This definitely a book I would recommend.
Adorable read 😊

I just finished this story.Very entertaining.
If this place really exists,I want to go there.
Never heard of the “Thumb ” area of Wisconsin on the Eastern coast but I would like to go there after reading this book.
It was fun getting to know Amy and Abby,Toby and Tabby and oh yeah the kids .Hated to see it end.

K’Anne was absolute perfection with the use of Southern language and innuendo. The attitude of a small backwoods town could not have been more accurate
on September 13, 2015
Really enjoyed this. You literally sit through halfway to three quarters of it going what on earth is in her past… I really liked Amy/Angel’s character. Well written. But it’s K’Anne so you know it’s going to be good 🙂

Another superior book by K’Anne Meinel. From the first page to the last you are keep guessing as to what is going to happen between our two main characters Amy and Abby. You understand the confusion in Amy’s mind regarding relationships and as you continue to read the story mush of her past life is revealed and her reason for running is so apparent. At the end you are exhausted but ecstatically happy with the ending.

This book is one of Miss Meinel’s best in a long line of great reads. Small Town Angel is a story that is so believable that you actually picture yourself as part of the story. once you start this book you will not want to put it down to do the dishes, laundry, put the kids to bed or go to bed yourself. From cover to cover this is full of excitement, love and suspense. Thanks K’Anne for another of your great imaginative stories.

This is a well-paced story with lovely characters. I found myself rooting for the two protagonists to get together – the writing hinting that they found each other attractive was tender and believable. You get the sense that there are secrets to be revealed, and when these gradually come out they are worth the wait, and then further twists at the end had me gripped til the last page!

I really enjoyed this book, it kept me engaged from beginning to end. I recommend this book. It almost made me want to move to Wisconsin… almost …
on November 24, 2015
the story was amazing and fun to read. I loved the fact that she overcame so many obstacles to be herself. as an avid reader I like stories that are believable. this one is. The story line is easy to follow and the story is a book you read in one sitting.
I’d recommend this to a friend.
