Legal Tender, a new review!

Hi, it's me, Lindy Walker from Legal Tender. I just popped in to share a new review for Legal Tender from The Long and the Short of It. I'm always thrilled to hear that someone enjoyed my story!

Part of what reviewer Camillia had to say:

"The “Who Done It” part of Legal Tender intrigues and nudges the reader to turn the pages almost as much as the need to know who Lindy will finally realize is the love of her life.

“Lindy-Loo” is a love and Granny is great. They make Legal Tender good reading that lifts the spirit."

The whole review is here.

Coming Soon - Author Chats!

Hi, it's me, Anna Romeo. I aplogize for being out of touch for a while but here in Milton Falls the days go by so quickly it's hard to know just where they go. Between Merlot, Tony and Nonno, and of course the vineyard and the library, I'm swamped. But I've got a little breather so I thought I'd visit with you. I'm actually at work right now, but the library is kind of quiet (a librarian's joke!) so this is the ideal time to chat.

There's some big news here at From the Pages! Starting in January, we're going to host author interviews! Isn't that great?

Of course, being a librarian and all, I am tickled by the idea. I'll actually be able to ask some of my favorite authors all sorts of, you know, personal questions. The stuff everyone really wants to know, like what they're currently working on, where they write and what hobbies they enjoy. I'll ask other questions, too, but I don't want to give away all my secrets.

A schedule of chats will go up on the sidebar in the very near future. We're planning to host interviews on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, so mark your calendars.

I hope you'll come back and chat with everyone. I just know this is going to be so much fun!

Uh oh. I've see a patron who looks like she can't find a book. I have to dash but I'll be back. Have a nice day! And remember--author interviews begin in January!

One Love For Liv

Ooh, a free book! What's not to like about that?

Back in my day, I'd go down to Main Street and pick up one of those dime-store novels every week. It was a treat, I'll tell you that. Father would ask why I couldn't satisfy myself with the books in his library but he didn't understand that every now and again a woman just needs a new book...or two. Especially if that book has a romantic twist to it.

Now, just look at the cover on One Love for sure does look like it's got a bit of romance in it, doesn't it?

Thanks for visiting with me today. Go on now; follow the link thingies and see how you can get yourself a free copy of this new book. It seems like the perfect story to curl up with on a snowy day...

"One Love for Liv" is the kind of book that you never tire of reading and re-reading. This fast-paced and witty read actually made me laugh ‘til I cried in several parts. I can guarantee that I can’t even think about pizzas without my eyes misting over after I read the story. Ms. Arkins’ fresh and interesting writing style will attract fans of offbeat romantic romps. "One Love for Liv" can easily become your much needed break from life's harried pace. Ms. Arkins is definitely an author to look out for!" - Bramble Nymph, Literary Nymphs reviews - Rated: 5 Nymphs

Olivia "Liv" Leigh, wealthy socialite and spa owner, suspects her fiancé of cheating on her, so she takes drastic steps to discover whether appearances are deceiving. And if those steps require a bit of stalking, a change of appearance, a hippo-sized dog named Spike, and sacrificing her manicure to clean house for a sexy but sloppy man whose neighbor is determined to break several of the strangest Guinness Book of World Records, why should that be a problem?

Mike, a happily single auto mechanic, is more than content sharing his bachelor pad with piles of laundry, dirty dishes, and a sneaky ferret. But when a half-crazed woman in a bad wig shows up on his doorstep, what's a nice guy to do? Why, invite her in, unknowingly help her in her search for the truth and, in the process, fall head over heels for a woman who's never been less his type.

One Love For Liv is available at or Samhain Publishing.
