I'm very pleased to see that I've sold some of my time travel, "A Train Through Time" A Train Through Time (Train Through Time Series Book 1) (English Edition) to folks in Denmark. But, and long before I thought I might actually sell a book in Denmark, I put Danish characters in one of my books, “Caribbean Dreams of Love,” Caribbean Dreams of Love (English Edition) Bjorn and Johanna, who travel on a cruise ship on the Caribbean. Bjorn enjoys dazzling his fellow diners with legends of the pirates who roamed the seas. Just for your info!

"If someone were to say to me that I would become a predatory lender, betray my best friend, fall in love with a thief, and help my bosses bankrupt the company, I would laugh out loud. This is the summer of 2006, and everyone knows you can still make a killing in mortgage lending. My best friend Megan and I moved to Seattle to do just that. While Megan is already dreaming of hot cars and designer clothes, my ambitions are less awesome. My earnings will go toward the mortgage my parents took out on our farm when they sent me to college."

Confessions of a Predatory Lender is a hilarious novel set in the world of Seattle banking. Christy tells the story of how she and her BFF Megan luck into a houseboat and are accepted into loan officer training at a big bank. Come along for the ride, as the two start their perilous climb up the corporate ladder.

Daughter of the Oceans
Daughter of the Oceans. It is based in Grand Marais, Minnesota. Which is right on Lake Superior. And the book is about Lake Superior. Well more about what is in it.

Stories about mermaids go way back as far as anyone can remember.
Mermaids are only seldom thought of as having tails and fins. They walk around on two legs and try to get humans to come into the water with them, never to return.
The Sons of Thor are the good guys who protect the water.

In this book a girl, Cassandra, moves to town with her father. They move around so no one will take her away from her father, (he is a human bad guy, who beats her.)
She meets Adaro, a Merman, in the woods. He feels that she needs help so he convinces his wife that they should adopt her.
The Sons of Thor have something to say about that. One, who is in love with one of the Mermaids is all for it but the others don't think it is a good idea. Especially Eric, who is in love with Cassandra is against it but he can't admit to the authorities who they Merpeople really are without admitting who he really is.
He has to go to high school, worry about Merpeople attacks, get Cassandra to love him back and keep her safe from her father who is still at large.
The story is told in first person. Both for Cassandra's point of view as well as Eric's.

Here is a link to my novel, "Into sunlight": http://www.amazon.com/Into-sunlight-ebook/dp/B00BAZ88D0

It is for an older audience . . . still sexy though! Mystery, thriller, and a little social commentary, what more do you want?

Joyce DeBacco meint:
Serendipity House. Named Best Indie Romance of 2011 by Lynn of Red Adept Reviews.

A runaway bride and the private investigator hired to locate her get more than they bargained for at a rundown country inn filled with senior citizens.

Serendipity House

Bobby of Bookwenches says, "Joyce DeBacco's novel Serendipity House is a story about love, family, and perseverance set in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. It features a heroine who is trying to get out from under the thumb of an overbearing mother, a hero who has too many secrets, the young couple who help run the inn, a handful of lovable geriatrics, and a shadowy antagonist who lurks in the background. If you enjoy a family-oriented style of romance that proceeds at a leisurely pace and that is populated with characters who seem like people you might know, then Serendipity House should probably be on your reading list."

I know that the Germans love a novel based on a true story. So I recommend this book hoping that you would like it. 'The Black Kid Of Windsor Castle' by DeRege Lemma is an amazing book about a young prince who was befriended by Queen Victoria who supervised his upbringing closely. A unique 19th century untold story, it's well written keeping the facts and the sequence of the reality in his novel.

Tomorrow Blossoms

When Kate's husband, Ward, locates the son she put up for adoption as an unwed teen, she's understandably wary. What if he looks like his father instead of Ward?

The boy, now a man, is also wary. Who are these people who suddenly want him to be a part of their lives? Where were they when he was growing up, when he needed to feel a part of something bigger? After meeting each other, everyone's fears dissipate. And though it isn't the joyous occasion Ward envisioned, it isn't the disaster Kate feared either.

Then Ward passes away unexpectedly. Although devastated, Kate is thankful he never knew the truth. Facing the rest of her life alone, she returns to work in the company he founded. She's still coming to grips with life as a single when she learns her son was adopted into the family of Jesse, the boy who turned her away as a pregnant teen. Now, she must deal with her feelings of anger and betrayal while also keeping her son and daughters from learning the truth.

Tomorrow Blossoms

"I found "Tomorrows Blossoms" an excellent family read ... I would recommend this novel to all as a wonderful read." A 5 star Amazon.com review.

Irretrievably Broken - For Germans who want to see our side of the world through literature, this novel will take you to the bush country of Canada, on a cross-country road trip through the U.S., and even to Germany where startling confessions and a discovery in the ruins of a family home heal old wounds.
I am totally gratified to have receivede a new 5 star review just yesterday on amazon.com:
5.0 out of 5 stars Irma Fritz - A Master of Lyrical Prose, May 5, 2013
By Cee Gee
Fritz masterfully weaves an intricate tale of family with her endless cast of characters. As Nora embarks on a cross-country road trip with her mother and niece, the reader is treated to several stories within the main story, stories that leave the reader feeling as though they are floating down a meandering river of stunning lyrical prose. "She reflected on how harsh life was without this ecstasy of skin on skin" is just a taste of how the author has mastered the use of the simple word. This story touched my heart - well worth the read.

Confessions of a Predatory Lender - A small-town girl moves to the big city of Seattle. How she manages to betray her best friend, fall for a thief & help her bosses bust up the bank.
"The book is hilarious, uncomfortable, sad, and always fully engaging. 30 years from now this book will still be a wonderful read." - Jordan Hedberg

Euro 2.68 on Kindle & also in paperback

For those who like a novel based on a true story, 'The Black kid of Windsor Castle' is a wonderful historical fiction about a black prince. He was the son of King Theodore II whose father was killed by the British army in 1868. Then he was brought up by the government in London and befriended by Queen Victoria. Read this fascinating story. The Black Kid of Windsor Castle
