Inn the Dog House by K’Anne Meinel

Inn the Dog House Front.jpg

Life has gone to the dogs for Charlie Abella.  Years of showing champion Border Collies has left her feeling burned out.  Moving on with her life, she heads to college and then takes on the world of business.  She is blessed to find a job working in sales for the pet industry where her knowledge and skills will help her move quickly up the corporate ladder and away from the small town of Searsport, Maine where she grew up.  When she loses a beloved relative, Charlie returns to Searsport for the funeral, believing now, she can finally cut all ties to her hometown.

Charlie’s only regret about moving away was leaving behind her favorite aunt.  Aunt Kitty had been her champion and her anchor when she felt her own family didn’t understand her.  Kitty saw herself in her young niece and understood Charlie as no one else could, so it was only natural she would choose to make her favorite niece her heir.  Sadly, she knows only too well that Charlie’s family will disapprove no matter how Charlie decides to use the money she inherits.

Reagan has been left on her own to raise two children.  Possessing few business skills, she is forced to take on a series of dead-end jobs that barely allow her to make ends meet.  Reagan has only her faith and her children to provide solace and support.  When Reagan encounters a woman dog walker on the street, she takes some comfort in feeling ‘at least she is better off than a woman with too many dogs to handle.’ 

Inexplicably, fate constantly causes the two women to bump into each other, and when Reagan feels herself becoming attracted to the woman, she is confused.  Unlike Charlie, Reagan is not a lesbian, and she is frightened by her feelings for this woman.  Will Reagan eventually act on her attraction, or will she continue to resist it? 

The dogs know what is right for this couple.  Now, if only the humans would listen!

Cavalcade ~ Audiobook

cavalcade audio

Molly didn’t know what kind of life to expect when she fell in love with Erin Herriot—her schoolmate, her best friend, and a woman.  She had been grateful for Erin’s friendship when the bank swindled her after selling her parents’ farm and she was invited to live on Erin’s parents’ farm. 

After making the difficult decision to live life as ‘man and wife,’ Molly gladly accepted the challenges before them.  Together, they made the decision to sell Erin’s farm and embark on the journey of a lifetime…on the Oregon Trail.

Erin couldn’t give Molly children; however, she could love her forever.  But leaving the area where they had both grown up and where everyone knew the women was the only way they could be together without questions about the true nature of their relationship. 

Come along on their adventure as two women cross the country, adopt a family, and begin a life that neither had imagined possible growing up in the mid-1800s.

Third Party Sellers

We are all for third-party sellers.  These are companies or people who buy our books to resell them to the public themselves.  YAY!  Right?  If it helps sell our product, then why not?562146e09dd7cc02308b7365-750.jpg

The only problem we have run into with third-party sellers is that sometimes the books are inflated in price, as though they are a collector’s item.

Our books are usually priced around $5.99-$7.99 for an e-book (and believe us, we do believe you get value for your money worth with a 80-150K book) and around $12.95-14.95 for a paperback.  It’s usually the paperbacks that they hyper-inflate.  We found one of our books priced out at over $300.  While we appreciate the idea that it’s worth that, it would have to be in gold for them to get that price.   It does not hurt the retailer whose site it is put up on as they still get their cut (ie: Amazon):Amazon-Vendor-Central-vs-Seller-Central

Even when you DELETE a book off of the sites, these third-party retail sales can remain indefinitely.  If you don’t know if it’s a third party, look for this:img_57b4d57ba23d8

We hope this clarify’s any confusion as to where our books are sold, how they are sold, and look for us selling them directly from our websites.  If it’s sold directly from our websites, we cut out the middle-man and our authors make more!  Let’s have happy authors whose writings we so adore keep writing!

Shadoe Publishing, LLC thanks all of you for buying our author’s books!

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…
