The Power of Story…

Sandra Brannan with William Joyce, the brilliant creator of 2012 Oscar Winning Short Film “The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore”

With the release of WIDOW’S MIGHT in August, I’ve been touring across this great country of ours on weekends to say ‘hi’ to friends — old and new — who call themselves fans of the Liv Bergen Mystery Series and to thank as many of the independent booksellers for loving books so much. Because of the booksellers’ willingness to heft debut authors like myself onto their weary, yet very broad shoulders, I having been riding a wave of success so beautiful it’s almost hard to believe. I can hardly find the words to properly thank the members of the ABA Independent Booksellers Association for awarding my newest book, WIDOW’S MIGHT, the Indie NextList pick for August 2012.

I can never put in words how much the booksellers and librarians mean to me as beautifully as William Joyce said it in his Oscar winning short film, “Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore” by Moonbot Studios. If you haven’t watched it, please do. Indulge yourself in this 15 minute love affair between us book lovers and the incredible power of story.

So grateful to all of you for spending time with me in bookstores during my 2012 Book Tour. See you next year! (Psst… spread the word about the power of buying books)

Widow’s Might is Two Weeks Away

Holy cow, what a great ride this roller coaster of writing has been!

The third in the Liv Bergen Mystery Series, Widow’s Might, is releasing on August 7th, 2012, just two short weeks away. Spoiler alert: The date is key to the storyline, which I hope you appreciate. I am humbled by the reviews from magazines, booksellers, newspapers, and bloggers. Thank you for loving Liv so much! Totally grateful to all of you booksellers, distributors, and associations who have requested books signings this fall. My book tour schedule is robust and I hope to see you when I come to your neighborhoods.

I had intended to stay home with my youngest this fall and work primarily through virtual tours until so many of you requested I visit your towns and stores and book clubs. Thankfully, my son decided not to play football this season so he could heal up for track and field next spring. Family always comes first and I would have chosen not to miss any of his games. He’s my youngest son. I’d choose him over Widow’s Might, my newest baby. You writers out there understand that. As it is, the pre-orders are amazing and thank you to all my fans who’ve enjoyed Liv’s adventures. Let me know what you think at sandra@sandrabrannan.com if you’re so inclined.

For those of you seeking suspense, intrigue and a little romance, I hope that Widow’s Might won’t disappoint. Keep your nose to the limestone!

Advanced Reader Copy – Widow’s Might

Thank you to all you reviewers, booksellers, and bloggers who have asked to receive an ARC for the third in the Liv Bergen Mystery Thriller series.  Before they are even printed, the ARC copies in the initial print run have already been spoken for so the Publisher is adding an additional 200 copies.  Yippee!  Who knew?  I am so grateful to all of you for loving Liv so much!  She’s a pistol, isn’t she?  Hopefully you’ll love her even more in book #3, Widow’s Might,  as she takes off running right where book #2, Lot’s Return To Sodom, left off.  And infatuation leaps into bloom, but shhhh… I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

Widow’s Might, a story of an incredible 80-year-old widow who overcomes her losing battle to cancer while in hospice just long enough to save a life or two from the deadly Crooked Man, takes place along the Mickelson Trail near Rochford, SD, nestled in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.  Stay tuned to the reviewers, bloggers, and booksellers opinions about Liv’s third adventure with FBI Agent Streeter Pierce as the unusual yet dynamic crime solving partnership in Widow’s Might.   

I can’t wait to find out what they think!  And hopefully, their recommendations will inspire you to pick up a copy when it releases August 7th 2012.  Thank you for choosing Liv!!
