Just giving you a head’s up into October!

Happy Fall!  We’ve had rain for several days, but outside right now it’s gorgeous and I thought I’d break from bringing in my house pants to let you know what our specials are going to be in October since we are nearly there!

October 4,5, and 6, James,  A servant of God to Us, will be just 99 cents in its ebook version.  If you’ve ever wondered why Martin Luther put his translation of this Bible book in the appendix of his translation, you’ll understand y the time you’re halfway through-the man was radical.  A great devotional that helps you to get closer to God and each other.

Just go to

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08MVG23JX 

and download your copy in the first part of October.

 

October 10,11,12,13,14, our latest book, Kids Grew in My Garden, will be a free download just for our fans.  Just go to

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09FKRXBSQ

on one of those and download your free copy and don’t forget to write us a review.

Tell me a story!  This book is all about real children doing real things. Kid’s Grew in My Garden is for those who love to read to children but have trouble finding engaging, intriguing non-fiction stories.  Ideal for church school, homeschool, parents, and storytelling time.

 

And finally, on October 25, 26, 27, and 28,  our bestselling book, Accidental Anomalies, will be a 99 cent download for those who might not have gotten it yet.

Ever since the meteorite holocaust, mutations have shown up in the population. Drs. David and Michael Simmons, brilliant scientists, have terrible luck with women. When they marry Aspen and Diem, they disappear like the other wives. What hides in the lowest level of the Center? If you like action, sci-fi, and wicked bad guys, you need this book!

 

There they are so far-I am hoping to get book two of the Fur Family mysteries out this month, but depends on the cover maker.  Thank you so much for being a fan, and God bless!

 

 

 

Brand new babies on the Croft!

Uncategorized Comments Off on Brand new babies on the Croft!

While I was gone on a trip to California, two new cria were born at the farm: meet Cinnamon and Stormy. Don’t you love their big brown eyes? And as soon as I got back, my little pom Bambi had two puppies-not named yet, just sweet little things.  I know it isn’t spring, but this fall seems to be really fertile this year!

As far as writing, I  will be releasing a new book for you to read your kids called Kids Grew in My Garden: or to read yourself shortly, aiming for Labor Day weekend.  The stories are all true, happened when I was raising kids myself, and even if you haven’t got children, you’ll enjoy the short tales.  They take about 3 to 5 minutes to read out loud.  All the research I have read says that kids who have an adult read to them grow up into better readers themselves, have an easier time in school, and bond closer to their caregiver; so I hope this book helps you do all that.  And for now, I need to run make supper for Danny, pick some tomatoes for homemade sauce, and enjoy being home from the trip to the ocean-I’ll need to tell you all about that-including the wildfire, the landslide, and the giant sundial-next time.  God bless!

As always, my author’s page at Amazon remains and I hope you visit us there to see all our books!

The Cover is Here!

Uncategorized Comments Off on The Cover is Here!

I just had to share the cover of our latest book to be- just to give you an idea of what’s coming in just a couple of weeks; you are going to love this book!  Final editing is happening right now: that’s expected to be finished tomorrow: then we go to publish.

Ascot and the Stolen Shrubs: Book One of the Fern Valley Fur Family Mysteries by J. Traveler Pelton

Fern Valley, a few miles down the road from Lyonsville, is a quiet little town, the kind of place you’d like to visit or retire to someday.  Every yard had flower beds, and the annual Gardening Festival competition and Home Tour draws crowds from miles away.  Ascot and his friends at the Sinclair Dog Rescue live a serene life next door to Lillian’s Cattery, and the dog pack and cat clowder formed a truce. When someone starts stealing flower bushes, Ascot and his friends stage nighttime forays while their masters search for clues in the daytime. Who will find what was hidden under all those bushes first, the professional detectives or a pack of lonely pets?   I just know you are going to love it!  Expect the publication date to be within 1 week, the week of July 28.

 

What a time we had!

Uncategorized Comments Off on What a time we had!

The last two weeks we went traveling-sometimes you just have to go in order to keep your brain in gear.  We went first to Niagara falls, then to Plymouth rock and the Founder’s monument in Massachusetts; then Maine.  We visited Baxter State Park, then Mt. Katahdin(Where we saw a moose!) and I got to start the hike on the Appalachian Trail- so five miles out of the 2190 miles of trail-but I am no longer a spring chicken, and it seemed good to me.  It was a lot rockier than I thought it was going to be.  I had no idea moose were so big-I mean you read about them and the ones at the zoo are always a ways back in the pen: being within twenty feet of one in the wild is an awesome experience.

Baxter State Park also has a set of Niagara Falls-since the Niagara Indians lived there at one time-they have big Niagara Falls and Little Niagara falls.  We also visited the International Museum for the Study of Cryptozoology-and I finally got to stand next to Bigfoot.  The rest of the museum was about as enlightening, but the grandchildren liked it.

On the way home we ran into a snag in that our reservations somehow didn’t emerge and we couldn’t find a hotel, so Dan and I took turns and drove 20 hours in a spurt to get home.  I have not been that tired in a long time but it’s all in the name of adventure, Right?

And expect the moose to show up in a future book, and expect the falls to show as well-they were all gorgeous.  I hope you enjoy the pics attached.

The little guy met us as we arrived at Heritage house to stay: he’s the resident-lives-by-the-porch vole.  His name is Vern.

And one more thing: early next week, we have a new book coming out-a a cozy mystery call Ascot and the Stolen Shrubs-you are going to love the feisty little hero of the story.  Fern Valley, a few miles down the road from Lyonsville, is a quiet little town, the kind of place you’d like to visit or retire to someday.  Every yard had flower beds, and the annual Gardening Festival competition and Home Tour drew crowds from miles away.  Ascot and his friends at the Sinclair Dog Rescue live a serene life next door to Lillian’s Cattery, and they’d formed a truce. When someone starts stealing flower bushes, Ascot and his friends stage nighttime forays while their masters search for clues in the daytime. Who will find what was hidden under all those bushes first, the professional detectives or a pack of lonely pets?

I’ll put a picture of the cover on in my next tome.  This is the first of a series called the Fern Valley Fur Family.  Hope you love dogs and critters as much as I do!

To keep up with our books, go to my author’s page at Amazon:  just type in the name, J. Traveler Pelton , pull up any of my books, and on the left-hand side, click on my author page.

Are You Warm Yet?

Uncategorized Comments Off on Are You Warm Yet?

A friend of mine lives in northern California and she says it’s 111 degrees today and I was upset about our measly 85 degrees here-but thunderstorms are coming, so I am trying quickly as I don’t like to work on the computer in the Strom-I prefer to enjoy my storms outside.

We’ll be heading out for a trip: the house sister is set, the animals cared for, and we’re heading for Maine for a few days of relaxation.  Well, sort of, Although I have packed my quilts and sewing machine, two good books to read, an afghan I am working on and some fiver to spin..and want to see Baxter State Park and the International Museum of Cryptozoology; yeah, I know, too much to do in a week.   I will be working on a new manuscript as well.  Before I took off, however, I wanted to give you some specials for July-and special they are-

July 1,2,3,4-Just Before Dying, He Prayed for you

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08W28G63X 

is 99 cents, a savings of $2 on a really lovely book about God.

July 4,5,6,7-Omnibus 1-The Past Generations of the Oberllyn Family, spanning a hundred + years- will be 1.99.  That’s a savings of 5.00!  It’s all three books in one volume and just the thing to take along to read on your vacation…and any other time-it’s over 700 pages long, as I recall, and contains all three books.

If you love family sagas with a pinch of romance, you will love this compilation of the Oberllyn Family Series 1844-1951).  Starting with the Western expansion and the Civil War, heading west by wagon, they start a generational battle between the family and an enemy network that plagues them for 12 generations. You won’t be able to set it down.

 

July 13,14, and 15 Forged in Water and Fire, a fantasy, sci-fi, romance epic, is going to be 99 cents-saving you $2-and giving you yet another reason to enjoy the summer.

If you like dragons, manors, magic and science combined, dystopian futures, and sweet love, you will love Tbear/Traveler’s final book in the Clan Falconer series. An ancient evil, leftover from the Great War, threatens the five United Kingdoms.  Lucan, his clan, and his family are to put a stop to the danger. Francis and Eliza are trying their best to get married, David and Nightsong are having a baby and the dragons are forming unlikely alliances. New bonds are formed, old rivalries simmer as dragon and clansmen alike work to survive in a new world forged of water and fire…and love.

July 21,22,23, Omnibus 3, including three books-the future generations of the Oberllyn family, is 2.99- a savings of $4.  (Can you believe Amz wouldn’t let me put book 2 on special?  Honestly, but you can at least read past and future and I promise I shall put present in next month.)  Again, this contains all three books in the future and is really rollicking good fun.

If you like unending action, apocalyptic adventure, romance, tech, and intrigue, then the Future Oberllyn Omnibus is for you!  A global genetic virus has a 100% kill rate; the Oberllyn’s need to destroy it before it wipes out civilization; maybe Noel can retire, Kai can take over the family research clan while Alex and Micah head for the stars.

And finally July 30 and 31, Calm Instead of Clamor is totally free-saving you the entire cost and giving you something to help you hold on when times are tough.  There is no reason to be afraid if you just know how to control those sometimes irrational feelings of panic.

If you want to lower your stress and increase your joy, then you will love Traveler’s book: Calm Instead of Clamor is like having a comforting Christian counselor in your home showing you easy, clinically proven steps to lower the fever of fear in your heart.  Whether your fear is rooted in the present pandemic, the climate, the economy, family problems, past trauma, or spiritual despair, this book will show you a path, clear and simple, to get your anxiety under control. Her book explains some simple steps you can do now to get rid of anxiety in the privacy of your own home. Get rid of your fear today!

So there they are-five opportunities to save money and gift yourself with entertainment or enrichment-brought to you by Potpourri Publishing and Traveler-have a grand summer!

June is Busting Out All Over!

Uncategorized Comments Off on June is Busting Out All Over!

It’s wonderful weather out here on the farm: makes it hard to concentrate on much besides gardening and flowers.  Our cats have kittened, my granddaughter is expecting her first child this fall, and we’re just getting ready for our first trip of the summer: most likely heading to Pennsylvania, and then Maine.  Dan’s busy trying to get the back porch on the garage apartment turned into another bedroom for the baby; I’m trying to get the gardens all caught up before we leave, and it’s been alternating between raining and really warm/humid weather. I hope your summer is going well.

I didn’t want to leave without letting you in on this month’s specials for you. I try to make it easy to always have something to read on hand.   For those times when you have thunderstorms or rainy weather (and it’s doing that as I write this note to you) I’ve got downloadable specials for you-such nice ones!

 

The first one is June 16, 17, and 18; Wednesday, Thursday, Friday:  Criminally Pieced Together is just 99 cents as a download.

 

June 19, 20 and 21, Saturday, Sunday and Monday,  Big God, Little Me is completely free as a download

 

 

June 23, 24, and 25, Wednesday, Thursday Friday again- Criminally Crocheted is a 99 cent download

 

June 29 and 30, Tuesday and Wednesday, Criminally Spun Out is 99 cents as a download as well.  Just zip over to

Just for you, have a grand first days of summer, and if you’re not in the pool, read a good book!

 

The Mutants Have Arrived at Last!

Uncategorized Comments Off on The Mutants Have Arrived at Last!

It has been a lovely very warm spring day, we turned the hay we cut yesterday, we finished planting the vegetable garden, and (short drum roll) our book came out the afternoon!

The third book of the Mutant FellowShip has officially launched into the ether and is waiting for you at Amazon.

Deep inside an ancient sealed cavern, the Mutant FellowShip holds their annual tribal meeting while outside, the Center convinces the U.S. government to make the mutants slaves in the battle to repair the planet.  The Center is still trying to locate the lost wombs and reclaim their property; the women and their children are trying to absorb their new culture and the Ice Age gets closer with each political gambit that slows the reclamation of the earth. Love blossoms in the safety of Sanctuary, but will hate and greed destroy the world they knew outside?  If you like action, thrills, sci-fi, and really wicked bad guys, you need this book!

Can you imagine Ohio weather?

Uncategorized Comments Off on Can you imagine Ohio weather?

I am totally freaky about our weather.

Last week, it snowed.  Now it’s gloomy and raining fit to bust-but the flowers are all back.  It doesn’t prevent me from writing here in my cozy office, looking out the window and imagining wonderful, dry, sunny paces to send my characters to today…

I hope most of you are having calmer times with spring.  At any rate, there are kittens in the barn, the canaries are on nests-5 of them and one has already fledged out 3 new canaries for the aviary.  The alpaca won’t create (give birth) for another 6 weeks.  From where I sit in my library office, I can look out the window at the rain, and see everyone else seems asleep to wait it out. I am, however chugging on a goal of another 5000 words on my latest mystery.  All I’ll say is it takes place in a zoo.  You will recognize many of the characters.  And I do hope you’ve been enjoying the new Mutant series.  Two beta readers sent me too late that they’d found some spelling errors so I took it down, corrected them, and set it back up all in one day-thank you Alicia and Sam!   Your autographed book for helping keep our books as close to error-free as is humanely possible is on its way.   I could use some more beta readers, so if you are interested, email me.  And if you are actively reading one of my books, don’t forget to leave a review on amazon.  travelerpelton@gmail.com

And I am headed for the greenhouse for some flowers to add to the flower boxes.  Have a grand and happy and peaceful day!  Come back soon-oh, and I updated the jokes page-Something funny this way goes.  Blessings to all.
