  1. Since people are already getting into the holiday spirit, I’m mentioning my Yuletide rom-com called A Christmas Void. Tiffany makes a career change and moves into the small town she grew up in. She takes a seasonal job and meets a hunky new coworker, but pursuing him comes with some strings attached…

  2. Thank you, Charles!

    If you’re looking for your next read, or want to do some early holiday shopping (books make great gifts!), check out my Amazon page. I’ve written a young adult epic fantasy novel titled Mystical Greenwood, which has adventure, magic, good vs. evil, gryphons, dragons, and unicorns! You’ll also find numerous anthologies featuring my poetry, short stories, and essays, including a poem in the style of The Raven, a fable about a mouse and a frog, a story about a giant hammerhead shark, and an essay about my experiences with Asperger syndrome. Everything you find here is also on Goodreads if you want to mark it as to-read for later. Enjoy!

  3. Hope okay to share this, with you/your author community:

    Long ago, and not sure if still being actively worked/promoted or not, but there was an effort by self-published authors in my WordPress bloggy pal world they dubbed “Read Tuesday” to fall after Cyber Monday in shopping/sales land marketing promotions –

  7. My new novel, Why Grandma Doesn’t Know Me, could be considered a holiday read. It starts around Halloween and ends Christmas Day. Sixteen-year-old Natalie learns a family secret from her grandmother, who suffers from dementia. After doing some research and realizing her grandmother wasn’t making this up, she tells her parents, which tears the family apart. Will they come together in time for the holidays?

  8. Hello! Thank you for the opportunity. Mine is my first, not yet published, waiting for the proof. But hope you don’t mind my promoting.

    It’s a non fiction help book titled “Employing Care Staff in Your Home”.. it’s for a niche market. People employed as paid caters in someone’s own home have the same employment rights as someone employed in a conventional organisation. Issues arise that cause financial loss if employment law is not followed. The book sets out to help people who aren’t aware of their obligations to employees.

    The website is in progress Thank you 🌷

    Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed:
    Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life
    (Second Edition)

    Book cover image description: A garden with rocks and pebbles, surrounded by grass and trees. To the left, a bench sits below a tree with a seated dog silhouetted on the grass in front of it. An ethereal glow of gold and green shines through the middle of the picture with the title of the book written in fantasy style lettering in darker gold and with black shadowing.

    In the first book of her memoir trilogy, Pathway to Freedom Broken and Healed: Book One How a Seeing Eye Dog Retrieved My Life, Patty Fletcher shares how choosing to attend The Seeing Eye guide dog school in Morristown, New Jersey, helped her to gain complete independence. But this decision would reveal glimpses into worlds she had never before known existed.

    Once home from The Seeing Eye, Patty soon begins to realize that all is not right in her own world.

    Watch your step as you journey down the winding path with Patty and Campbell, for there are many obstacles along the way. Through triumphs and tribulations, through tears and fears, that forever guide remains at her side. King Campbell works tirelessly to keep Patty safe from harm.

  10. Once again, thanks for such an opportunity.
    Bubba Tales by Patty L Fletcher (Includes a Christmas Tail/Tale Wish of the Wee Golden)
    In this magical and love-filled tail, King Campbell, Super Seeing-Eye Dog AKA Bubba travels to the puppy nursery at The Seeing Eye to help ready a group of puppies who are just about to embark on the fabulous journey of learning to become Seeing-Eye dogs. Just as he is about to finish his tail, a wee pup becomes very frightened of all that lies ahead, and one frightfully stormy night she runs away! Will King Campbell hear the urgent call from the puppy nursery in time? Will they find her and save her so she can fulfil her destiny?

    The Runaway
    One stormy night a few weeks later King Campbell and his mother had just gone to bed, and just as he was about to drift off to sleep, he heard again the tinkling of dog tags off in the distance. They had an urgent sound to them. “Something is wrong.” He thought. So, after making certain his mother was fast asleep, checking the house, King Campbell.
    stretched himself comfortably and once again let himself fade away.
    As he appeared in the nursery, he noticed that there was much confusion, and he could smell fear.
    “What is wrong?” He asked one of the mother dogs standing nearest him when he appeared in the room.
    “Oh! King Campbell! We have an awful problem!” She howled.
    “Why, whatever is the matter?” He asked with some alarm.
    “Oh! That little pup that snuggled with you last time, you were here! She heard that soon it would be her time to leave her mother and go with her first family and she has hidden herself someplace and we have looked and looked, but we cannot seem to find her!”
    Now, it had been storming when he had left his human mother, and it was storming there as well.
    “Well, now, she’s such a wee thing. She can’t have gotten far. We will split up and search the grounds.”
    Soon, King Campbell had all the pups gathered together, along with their mothers, and he gave each of them an assigned place to look. He remembered many things about the nursery and the land around it, and he was ever sure that they would find her without much trouble at all. He made sure to keep the wee pup’s mother close to him so she would not be too afraid, and off they went into the storm.
    The lightning flashed! The thunder crashed! And how the wind did blow! The rain was falling hard, yet all the dogs and pups looked and looked. Sniffing here, sniffing there. They looked inside and outside, too. They sniffed under bushes and around trees. They looked under furniture in the nursery, and even in toy boxes, closets, and drawers. A bunch of little Labrador pups even tried to look in the food bins, and when they did not find her, they decided to stop for a quick snack.
    King Campbell chased them out, saying, “No! No! She is not in there! You leave! It! Stop that!”
    Pretty soon, though, they had looked everywhere they could think of and still there was no sign of her. It was getting later and later; the storm was worse than ever, yet still, they had not found her. As King Campbell stood with his head down, trying to think what to do, an idea suddenly came to him. He raised his head and barked loudly!
    “Woolf! Woolf! Woolf!” The room fell still, and he said, “Listen! Listen! Everyone! I have an idea! It is magik, and it just might work! At home when my human mother is missing special people in her life and wishes to draw them to her in some way, she sings a special song. I am going to sing it, and when you think you have the words, join me! Now, come on! All gather round! Let us make a circle. All grasp paws! That’s right, come on! All together now! And remember, when you have the words sing.” He began to sing.
    “Listen to the birds sing.
    Listen to the chimes ring.
    Listen to King Campbell’s bell ringing.
    Listen to the rainfall.
    Listen to my heart call.
    Listen to King Campbell’s bell ringing.”
    Soon all the mothers and pups were singing, but the wee pup’s mother was still crying and had not yet begun to sing. King Campbell turned to her. “You must sing! You must! You must sing and you must believe! Now sing!”

  11. “Timely advice is lovely, like golden apples in a silver basket.” (Proverbs 25:11, NLT)

    The turbulent times we live in require us to look at our changing world in new ways if we hope to find the blessings that will sustain us. The short, easy-to-read vignettes in this book focus on sifting the true and positive out of the grit and grime of daily life.

    Like the abundance of apples we can choose from to satisfy our varying tastes, there are different kinds of stories in this book. A few are specifically about the Coronavirus; most are not. Some mention God; most are as practical as they are spiritual. There are even some poems sprinkled in for good measure. All of the pieces are intended to help readers seek strength and joy in the challenging days that have come upon us.

    Delve into the silver basket and find the golden apples that await you.

    To buy my book in Kindle, audio, or paperback formats, please look for “Apples of Gold: Timely Advice When the World Doesn’t Seem Lovely” on Amazon or visit my author Website at
