This or… That?

It’s #FunFriday over in my Facebook reader group, and time for a #poll + #giveaway! I’m almost done with BURYING THE DEAD (Book Four of The Dead Series), and a LOT is happening. Hyacinth has a whole new set of challenges to face, both “professional” and, er, “personal.” ;) Let’s just say – her relationship status is…evolving! :)

So… I’m curious: Are you Team Eric or Team Jason?? Join me in my Facebook reader group, and cast your vote by 11:59:59 p.m. Pacific Time on January 19, 2022, and you’ll be entered to win a $5 Amazon card!

If you need some inspiration, see below. Maybe these guys aren’t quite how you pictured them, but still – fun to look at, right?? So who should Hyacinth choose?? Scroll down for more, and then hop over to Kerry’s Kindred Spirits and vote for your favorite now!

P.S. Not on Facebook? Sign up for my Very Occasional Mailing List for an alternate way of entering!

New Facebook Reader Group – Cover Reveal & Excerpts of DAMNING THE DEAD Coming Soon!

I’m so excited to share that my Facebook Reader Group, Kerry’s Kindred Spirits, is LIVE! If you’d like to join, it can be found at http://facebook.com/groups/kerryskin. To kick us off, I’ll be doing SIX weekly giveaways, for giftcards good for books and movies, ranging from $15 to $25! Giveaways will start on Sundays and end on Saturdays, with the first one launching on July 18, to give everyone a chance to join, and me a chance to get the festivities started! ;)

Plus (drumroll…) – I’ve got even MORE exciting news! I have a COVER for DAMNING THE DEAD, and it is AMAZE-BALLS. Seriously! I’ll be doing the reveal in the Facebook group soon(-ish :)), as well as posting a teaser excerpt or two, because (second drumroll…) I should have a release date very soon!!! And it should be in 2021!!!

Yep, you read that right: DAMNING THE DEAD is finally in the final pre-pub stage! More than a year later than expected, but who’s counting?? (If you need excuses, try: Personal, Professional, and Global Catastrophes over the last 18+ months. ‘Nuff said. :)) I am SO excited that it’s finally almost here, and I can share more of Hyacinth & Co.’s ups, downs, and all-arounds with you all! And let me tell you – this time, she’s in for one helluva ride!!!

Okay, I think that’s it for DATD news! For today, at least! When I have a release date, I’ll let you know. Or if you want to find out faster, join Kerry’s Kindred Spirits, as that’s where I’ll be sharing it first. Hope you’re all having a great summer! I’m about to leave on a three-week trailer camping jaunt to the Midwest, so follow me on Instagram if you want to see random pics, or TikTok for random videos. :) Or, not to belabor the point – join the FB group, where I’ll probably share as well!

Cheers!
