Re: Please Welcome Author KATIA LIEF!

Hello again!

 

I wanted to let you know that my novel WATERBURY (Do You Know the Killer Beside You?) is available on the Nook as of today!  It isn't available anywhere else at the moment, so you'll be the first.  Like my other ebooks, it's only 99 cents through autumn.  Enjoy!

 

(Paperbacks are coming soon....)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waterbury  

 

Who will live and who will die?

 

A family gathers for Thanksgiving in rural Connecticut, bringing with them confessions, accusations, demands.  But suddenly personal agendas become meaningless as the priority shifts to survival.  Two burglars break in, believing the house to be empty.  In their panic they take the family hostage—and the crime that follows spirals out of control.

Hi Patti--

 

Why do I like writing mysteries?  Probably the same reason I like reading them:  you get hooked into the story and don't know how it will end until you're done.  Even when I think I know what the ending will be, it always turns out to be something different.  It's also a lot more interesting writing about bad characters than just good ones, and in this genre we get plenty of opportunity to explore the whole range of human behavior.

The first novel (ebook) in the Karin Schaeffer series, You Are Next , was just put on sale for 99 cents:
