Michelle Connell – Cookie Encounter

My debut novel is Cookie Encounter: A Chance Encounter Inspirational Romance, available on Amazon, B&N and through Ingram.

Cookie Encounter is a NaNoWriMo novel which I wrote in 2007. I edited and worked on it off and on over the next several years, debating whether to find an agent or self-publish. I decided to take the plunge to indie publish last year and so far, it is doing well with 4.5 stars or higher.

Cookie Encounter is about Natalie Alexander who moves to southern IL to escape her past. She then meets high school teacher Nick Norton over a platter of cookies. But she isn’t looking for love, or is she? How can she fall in love without revealing her secret? Join Natalie on her journey to forgiveness and love in a wholesome and heartwarming story.

D.E. Morris – Aliens in the Gift Shop

Hi! I’m sci-fi author D.E. Morris. I’ve been a sci-fi and fantasy geek pretty much my whole life. I did not grow up with a television and I’ve been a voracious reader from a young age, as books became my entertainment. Current influences include Douglas Adams and Steven Moffat (as well as being an obsessive Doctor Who fan). I currently have two sci-fi humor/adventure books available, both inspired by Doctor Who-style action.



This first book follows two extra-terrestrial scientists who have arrived on Earth for their first reconnaissance mission: to study and gather information about human society and interaction. Due to a miscalculation in their environmental data the mission is a complete disaster. While trying to salvage their assignment, they discover that they have brought with them an object that is vital to the survival of their planet. This discovery unwittingly puts them, and the Earth, into the interstellar cross-hairs of their enemies, who will stop at nothing to acquire it.

You can continue the adventure with the second book: “Aliens and the Race to Earth.” Please visit my author website for information and samples. Plus, as an added bonus, through December you can join my email newsletter and download both books for free. Enjoy!
