Whoo hoo! It’s finally the big day!! Through the Cracks is officially launched! This new novel is a rich and honest relationship story with a good measure of mystery and a bit of a supernatural element. It’s also the story of three women that fall within a wide age span, so it carries a three-generation view of life and friendship, fear and trust, and growing into who you are. I’m thrilled to send this book out to you and into the story universe! Get your copy today… CLICK HERE
I don’t often review books here, but I thought the wild and weird in this one might entertain those of you who follow or stop in at Reality with a Twist. This is Book II of the Echo Falls Series, but you can read it as a standalone or after Wilderness Rim.
I expected adventure when moving forward from the fun Sasquatch-meeting story in Wilderness Rim to the next in the series, Tanner’s Landing, but this book also packs way more punch. Like Scooby Doo vs. Dark Shadows – both entertaining, mysterious, and flirting with the paranormal, but one definitely wins out on the creep factor. This amp up in intensity works for me in much the way the Harry Potter series does, since both are following characters that are growing up. It makes sense that 15 to 16-year-olds would get mixed up in deeper trouble and stranger circumstances than younger teens. Their relationships also gain complexity, and I relate to the push and pull of tension between C.J. and Janey’s friendship-or-more dilemma as well as the anxiety of all the Echo Falls gang as their peer group grows in new directions. Newly introduced character, Max, grabbed me right away and has become my favorite along with his Uncle Sebastian. I highly recommend this read, but keep the lights on, and get set for all things weird and wonderful!
I just learned about a more powerful Reverse Image Search tool, RevEye a Chrome Extension. Amazing!! For fun, I searched my new book cover for, Through the Cracks (*whispers: to be released Jan. 21st but available now) and I got the image below… Spot on connection. I get that it chose the similar image, but it picked up on the concept as well. Check it out! And while you’re at it, check out the book too. Click on the image… 😉
Today is the big day, and I hope you’ll celebrate with me! You can get your copy of THE LOST TRAIN today! My new story is published along with 6 great other stories and 10 fabulous works of art.

In celebration of the release of my new Kennedy J. Quinn, Miss LiV Adventures series book, Memory Key, I’m offering my Sheri J. Kennedy, Reality with a Twist book, Feeling Human, at only 99 cents on Kindle for 48 hours, starting June 28th 12am PDT. Don’t miss this great price for my most popular novel! GET YOURS NOW!
Here are a few Reader Responses to Feeling Human:
“I’ve never read anything quite like this. You have a misunderstood youth, sure, but he’s very different from anyone else in the world or in literature… Engaging from the start, satisfying to the end.”
“I really lost myself in it. I liked the variety of characters and experiences…It felt real. A great job capturing a boy who was so hung up on his past he couldn’t move forward in life…both fun and heartwarming…very original and refreshing.”
“It was brilliant! Intriguing, unusual and yet so human and familiar.”
I can’t wait to share this book with you! After you read it, leave a review on Amazon, and let me know what you thought about it. I’d love any feedback you care to share. Thanks! -Sheri J. Kennedy
As an artist I learned my creativity far exceeded any box that society or gallery marketers tried to shove me into. So when I started writing novels, I saw if I published under only one name, readers would scratch their heads on their second purchase with a great big, “How did we get from there to here?” So, Kennedy J. Quinn was born. Really, it’s just my name backwards – if you put in my nickname ‘Quinn’ as my first name. So it’s all just another me. Sheri J. Kennedy with a twist.
Ms. Quinn just released her 3rd novel (4th book since 2 are under one cover) The Unwitting Journeys of the Witty Miss Livingstone – Book II: Memory Key. (Available on Amazon along with Book I: Journey Key) And I’m so excited about the upcoming Launch Party, I just had to share! Come out and meet both me’s and enjoy some handmade shortbread and a spot of Mariage Freres tea. See you there!
It’s been an exciting beginning to my writing year with some fun boosts to my journey as an author! I’ve also been working nearly 4 hours everyday (and yes, I have a day job as well) on Book II in my Time Travel series, starring the Witty Miss Livingstone and just finished the ARC copies yesterday! It will be released in May!! Whoo hoo!!!
That accomplishment means I ‘won’ #CampNaNo for April as well with a 90 hour goal. Woot!!!
But much of what’s been driving me with great enthusiasm is the King Co. Library System’s honoring my book Likeness with a community book club event, which I’m feverishly preparing for by May 2nd at North Bend Library. It was also thrilling to find my book on the shelf at Barnes & Noble! I also found that same Miss Livingstone book in circulation at the library. I just had to check them out!
And squeezing in before the Likeness Meet the Author event is Wine & Words at The Black Dog in Snoqualmie, WA. I’ll be reading for that, as always. Not to mention toting a huge rack full of FVP Books for our indie author display table. Come on out and read on stage or kick back and listen and pick up some great books by indie authors!
What’s going on for you this year so far? Anything Eventful?
My first box of books is here! Feeling Human is officially born!… I always feel like a proud mom when my ramblings are polished and corralled into a published print book and it arrives on my doorstep. Does that mean the UPS guy is a stork?
