A Clue for Adrianna (Captain’s Point Stories Book 1) – The first novel in the Captain’s Point series.  A romantic women’s fiction/family saga/chicklit novel written by Annie Acorn & Juliette Hill writing as Charlotte Kent.

Also available in print on Amazon UK and iTunes and for Nook and Kobo.

Two years ago, Annie Acorn Publishing LLC (AA Pub) experienced a lucky Thirteenth with the April 13, 2013 release of the first novel, A Clue for Adrianna, in the highly successful Captain’s Point Stories series.

In January, 2013, Authors Annie Acorn and Juliette Hill decided to work together and combined their writing talents on this collaborative contemporary romance series, writing as Charlotte Kent.

Their goal was to create a fictional world set around an idyllic small town, Captain’s Point, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Creating characters and storylines to capture the dreams and imaginations of their reading audience, the two writers inspire and balance each other’s ideas, crafting tales capturing the essence of enduring themes in life, love, and family.

This series, billed as romantic women’s fiction and family saga, has been compared to the works of Debbie Macomber and Thomas Kinkade by readers all over the world as they have communicated with From Women’s Pens best-selling authors through Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, and various social media outlets.

Pen & Ink Surf the Net

AAP-Logo100

Soooo…

You’ve written a novel, rewritten it, edited, copyedited, and published it – either traditionally or indie.  Now it’s time to market, and you’re at a loss.

“What to do?” You pace back and forth in a dither, unsure whether or not you can do this.

Is social media your answer? Podcasts? Trailers? Interviews?

Can’t figure out where to go for help in making these important decisions?  Might we suggest the tried and true?  Who better to provide you with an answer than author Ron Shaw, who has agreed to be Guest Quill for the 4/1-15/15 Pen & Ink session?

This session’s question? What media and internet formats have you used to promote your books? Thoughts?

Before you pay for years of intense therapy, might we suggest that you grab a pen and paper and get ready to take some notes.  There’s no telling what you might learn from an answer that’s come from someone as successful and talented as Ron Shaw is!

Pen & Ink Fall in Love

AAP-Logo100

Soooo…

You’ve decided to write a novel.  Characters and plot lines are flying around in your head, but before you reach for a pen, begin jotting notes, construct an outline, or develop a chart, you first need to decide in what genre you wish to write.

“What about romance?” You consider.

“What to do?” You pace back and forth in a dither, unsure whether or not this is a genre for you.  “What are the pros and cons, when writing in this genre?”

Soooo…

“What to do?” You pace back and forth in a dither, unsure which is the better approach.

Christmas Memories 2014

AAP-Logo100

Back before time, when I was a child, Christmas was celebrated much differently than it is today.  The season was shorter, decorations were simpler, and small things meant more than bigger ones.

Even so, the Christmases I remember from my childhood were a step beyond those celebrated by the generation before mine.  As a treat for those of you who enjoy stories of the ‘old days,’ we at Annie Acorn Publishing, LLC, have published on our website the Christmas memoirs of two such individuals, who were both born and raised in Indiana many years ago.

So, prepare a warm drink, put together a small plate of Christmas goodies, settle into a comfy chair by the fire, and prepare to enjoy a good read as you enjoy:

Patrick Family Christmas Memories and The Lancaster Christmas Celebration

In addition, my friend and fellow AAPub author Ron Shaw and I have shared memories of special Georgia Christmases that we each experienced – our gifts to YOU!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!
