Deals, steals, and news from author Michelle Isenhoff.

Is there some visible reminder of the past that fires your imagination and leaves you nostalgic? My mom loves covered bridges. My college roommate swoons over horses and carriages. For me, it's widow's walks. 

A few years ago, my husband and I vacationed along the New England coast. We must have driven through a dozen little fishing villages, with their rickety wharves, fishing boats, and tidal pools hidden among the rocky crags. And every town had a handful of cupola-ed widow's walks that stirred up images of long-ago sailor's wives, pacing their roofs and watching for their husbands and sons to come home. They gave me goosebumps.

I took those New England images, threw in a curse, some eccentric characters, and a bit of magic and shaped them into my historical fantasy, The Quill Pen. Since this one's a stand-alone, I don't mention it too often. But here's the blurb...

If you owned a pen that wrote the future, would you use it? What if the consequences spread like ripples in a pond? What if they raged out of control? What if the pen demanded tribute…in blood? Micah Randall has found such a pen. One that’s ensnared him in a curse dating back generations. One that’s devastated two families and now threatens his whole New England village. But how can Micah destroy the pen when it offers his only chance at the future he dreams of?

This one won a Reader's Favorite Five Star Seal and was reader-nominated for the 2014 Indie Recon Best Novel Award. Check it out!

Be sure to also browse the books and promos featured below. They're always free or bargain priced. I generally bounce between speculative and historical fiction (the main genres I write in), and sometimes some fantasy, middle grade, or a bit of romance, just to keep things interesting. 

Happy reading!
