Second Bibliophiles' Novel On Sale Now


Well, dear readers, it is official. Until My Soul Gets It Right (The Bibliophiles: Book Two) is now available in paperback and ebook at and for Nook on

Most series follow one main character through various adventures. As you might know, mine is a little different. Each member of my fictional suburban classics book club, known as The Bibliophiles, "stars" in his or her own novel. We see their backstories — how they got to where they are today, and how they became the people know now.

For example, the first novel, A Whisper to a Scream (The Bibliophiles: Book One), featured overwhelmed, stay-at-home mom, Sarah, and PR executive Annie.

Until My Soul Gets It Right (The Bibliophiles: Book Two) is Catherine Elbert's book, the actress from As You Like It, the Bibliophile's field trip from the end of the first novel.

Here's a quick description.

Catherine Elbert has never been good at making decisions, whether it was choosing an ice cream flavor as a small child, or figuring out what she wanted to be when she grew up. The only thing Catherine knew for sure was there had to be more to life than being stuck on her family’s farm in Wisconsin. 

While watching a PBS travel show, Catherine becomes entranced by Portland, Maine. The ocean. The lobsters. The rugged coast. Nothing could be more different from the flat, nondescript farmlands of Burkesville.

Despite her parents threatening to disown her and her brothers taking bets on how many days until she comes home, Catherine settles on Peaks Island, off the coast of Portland.

She is finally free. Or so she thought. 

I hope you enjoy getting to know The Bibliophiles as much as I do writing their adventures.

That's great, Karen. I'd just read (and commented upon) the recent blog announcing this book's delay. I'm so glad the delay was short.

Hope you sell a million+ copies.
You're awesome, R. Doug. Thanks.
