Two writers inspired me to switch from mainstream writing to lesfic: K’Anne Meinel and AJ Quinn. Both are extremely good story tellers. The first book I read by K’Anne was “The Outsider”. I remember thinking, I wish I could write like this.

K’Anne has 100 published works and multiple bestsellers. A native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, she uses her home state as the background of many of her novels. Her first novel “Ships” was published in 2003 and a bestselling author was born. Her writings run the gamut from erotica to historical and everything in between.

K’Anne is a tireless researcher and brings to life time periods set in the old west, pirates plundering on the high seas and in her latest series, “Cavalcade” the settling of America. Lesfic is fortunate to have an author the caliber of K’Anne. November 10 is her birthday and the…

We were ‘only’ Facebook friends, but it was a friendship I cherished. I hope she is annoying Spike in the afterlife, enjoying herself.

M A G P I E à la modus operandi

Souvenir of True FriendshipI’d nicknamed her AK-57 for the year she was born, a moniker that wasn’t lost on Amanda Kyle Williams who fostered an irreverent, self-deprecating sense of humor about herself, the world at large and, oh yeah, serial killers.

We were wired (as I believe everyone is) through happenstance.
In 2012, I was asked by a mutual friend to add my name to a list of those vying for a chance to win a free copy of her recently released hit novel, The Stranger You Seek, even though I’m an irremediable romantic who avoids most media pertaining to violence. In fact, I’d never read a mystery — not even In Cold Blood by Truman Capote, whose other written works are all favorites of mine.
So, I was a tad taken aback when Amanda friended me on Facebook to say I’d won a copy of her novel and asked…

Oops ~ Amazon

The other day I released my latest book CAVALCADE.  At the same time I pre-released my next book PIONEERING.  Cavalcade is the prequel to my enormously successful book VETTED and the new one due out this fall Vetted Further.

For some reason, the link does not work.  I tried emailing amazon, it takes up to 24 hours for them to get back to you on that.  This is what I got:

Hello K’Anne,

Thank you so much for reaching out to Kindle Direct Publishing. I would be more than happy to provide you with assistance.

I’m so sorry to hear about the trouble you had when using our website.

Your book, “Cavalcade,”  is live and available for purchase.

Here’s the direct link to your title’s detail page on Amazon:

To view the title’s detail page, hover over the “View on Amazon” link on your KDP Bookshelf and click on a marketplace.

Thanks for using Amazon KDP

Well, when you click on that link you get the SORRY we couldn’t find that page with the cute dogs, fortunately, each time you click on it, you get a different dog.

Another email and I got this:


I’m writing to let you know that the author of “Cavalcade” – ASIN: B07F1BZGR4 contacted KDP Support with questions about their book. To protect account security, we can only discuss books with the account holder who published them, so we’ve asked the author to contact you.

You can visit our Help pages for information about the author’s request:

Thanks for using Amazon KDP.

Best regards,

Um, hello?

Today I actually spoke with someone.  Unfortunately it was with a call center over-seas.  I understand why big companies use these call-centers but it’s terribly difficult for those of us already frustrated to deal with someone who can’t completely understand or speak English.  He was, however, helpful.

Apparently mine is not the only book to have this problem.  Relief, I’m not being singled out.  They are having trouble across their .com platform, essentially the USA site, with links to new books.  You can, however, purchase the book in the UK and European sites.  They estimate they will correct this problem in a day or so.  That doesn’t help my fans from buying the latest copy of Cavalcade on Amazon.  You can pre-order Pioneering there because that apparently went through no problem.  Cavalcade you have to wait or except for Amazon, you can order it directly through my website, download it to your kindle using a .mobi version, did you know you can do that?  Check out the links on my site and give it a whirl while we wait for up to 24 hours, again, for them to correct their bug.
