Whisper Hollow, where spirits walk among the living, and the lake never gives up her dead...

Fifteen years ago, I ran away from Whisper Hollow, Washington, a small town on the Olympic Peninsula. But truth is, if you were born here, you can never really leave. I'm Kerris Fellwater and when I returned, I not only inherited my grandmother's house, but her gift. Like her, I must take on the job of spirit shaman. It's my gift-and my curse-to drive the dead back to their graves, because around Whisper Hollow, people-and secrets-don't always stay buried.

A trunk hidden in the attic throws my life into chaos. My mother vanished when I was little and I was told she ran away. But now it looks like she was murdered. With the help of Bryan-my mysterious and brooding neighbor-we begin to unravel the mystery of her disappearance, and in doing so, we unearth a dark force seeking to bury Whisper Hollow. Now, I must work with the dead, rather than against them, because our enemy will do whatever she can to destroy the town, and she means to start with me.

Does social media keep you online for hours each day trying to get the word out about your books? Want to reach more people in a shorter amount of time? Try Hootsuite! Similar to Tweetdeck, the difference is Hootsuite allows you to post to up 5 different social media platforms with their free option. They also allow you to post to LinkedIn groups, your Facebook pages, and even Google+ (although you do have to set up a separate page to do this).  If you really want to maximize your time and how many social media groups you can reach, use both Tweetdeck and Hootsuite, this way you can cover Facebook and Twitter on Tweetdeck, and Google+, LinkedIn, MySpace etc. with Hootsuite. You'll still have to login into two separate platforms but it's well worth it since it allows you to save time and reach more people, more quickly!

Coffee Time Recommended Reads

CTRR Award

Our Coffee Crew works hard every day reading and writing those great reviews because we love it. Out of all the books that the entire staff reads, occassionally one raises to the top of our Staffer's mind. A special book that is just so wonderful, we feel it deserves an extra acknowledgement. So once a month, our Coffee Crew awards a book with the CTRR Award and share it with you.

Not every member of our Coffee Crew will have a 'special' book they recommend, so when one of the books is selected, you know it is special! Stop by our blog to see which books were nominated and won this month...or in the past!

Congratulations to this month's winners:
