June is Busting Out All Over!

Uncategorized No Comments »

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.

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.

Spring has almost Sprung!

Uncategorized Comments Off on Spring has almost Sprung!

Our cats have kittened, our dogs have puppied, the crocuses are out-this week is so different from last week-last week, we had almost 13 inches of snow on the ground; this week, it’s all gone and we are making maple syrup-just for ourselves, nothing huge, about 2 gallons so far.

And this last week we put out our latest cozy mystery for our fans, CriminallySpun Out which did really well, thank you everyone!   In a little over two days, its ranking went a little wild!  According to Amazon, it was

Best Sellers Rank: #34 Free in Kindle Store (See Top 100 in Kindle Store)
#1 in Christian Suspense
#4 in Cozy Crafts & Hobbies Mystery
That is a new record for us and we are thankful!  I went for a long walk around the field with the dogs and alpaca today-did you know that when pine trees come into spring, they sprout their new growth and it is in the shape of a cross?  Next time you take a walk near piney woods, around this time or a little closer to Easter, take a look for yourself.  Even nature declares the glory of God.  And here on the croft, we are busy getting syrup made and prepping for the spring work-gardening, planting, mending, cleaning up for winter, while still enjoying the growth that is springing to life all around us.  I hope all is well where you live, and that you have a grand week!  Don’t forget to check out the new jokes-you always need a smile or two a day…and please pray for our country-it’s seeing hard times right now.  God bless and see you next week!

to pick up your copy.  It’s a page-turner and I had a lovely romp writing it and getting it ready for you-although I did drive my editor almost to distraction.

A global genetic virus has a 100% kill rate; the Oberllyn’s need to destroy it before it wipes out civilization; then maybe Noel can retire and Kai can take over the family research clan while Alex and Micah head for the stars.


Now, in case you missed it, we had snow-I mean tons of it, 10 inches or so, over the next few days; long enough to get this book published, and another book is coming out next week for Lent-can you believe it’s almost lent already?  And next month the next cozy mystery comes out and a new series starts-just percolating around here at Potpourri PUblishing-and did I tell you Bambi’s puppies now have their eyes open.  Darling little things.  And Dan and I made 25 drop spindles.  Anyway, pick up your book, have a grand time, and remember to allow time to sleep-life goes on even if you have a great book to keep you occupied.  Blessings, all-don’t forget to leave a review.
