Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    I really wish the other great deals (like the free books from Samhain) were available at Kobo or the Sony store.

    Thank you so much for listing the Deeanne Gist — how can you beat zero? I’ve wanted to read her since @superwendy shared the talk Gist gave on covers.

    I borrowed the Deeanne Gist from the library last year after seeing it on Wendy “Super Librarian” blog and then in turn recommended it to friends! I don’t usually read “inspirational” because I do not want to be bludgeoned by christian messages. Maid to Match didn’t do that and it was set in a very interesting historical period. Good book!

    Thanks again for making time to post this list. It’s all kinds of happy reading! :)

    Jane, you may already know this, but Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is a rock star in the knitting world. She has written a number of Yarn Harlot books, and she has a very popular blog. Her books have the same voice, I think; I’ve only read excerpts. She had a dead-simple scarf pattern on her blog a few years ago; I’ve knitted it several times in different yarns and it looks great in every one.

    @Sunita I got that impression reading the reviews but the memoir sounded interesting regardless of her presence in the knitting world. I’m not a knitter…

    @Jane: I think it will be. She writes about more than knitting, and she has a very appealing voice. I’m not a Yarn Harlot groupie, so the blog is enough for me (especially since I’m not knitting much these days), but the memoir should be good. I’m picking it up too.

    I’et Gist at RomCon in 2010. I thought I got her book then, but I think I donated it to a charity auction or something. So I’m getting the Kindle edition, because I do want to read it. The knitting memoir looks good too; I’m a crocheted, not a knitter, but close enough.

    Thanks as always for these listings!
