Key Lake, Minnesota

Friends! We’re TWO WEEKS from the publication of Little Broken Things! I’m so very excited! And nervous and happy and a little scared and, well, probably every emotion you can imagine. There’s lots to do and lots to share, and I’m sure I’ll forget important things along the way. But Pinterest. I can’t forget Pinterest. 😉

One of the things that I do to get my heart and mind in book-writing mode is create several Pinterest boards. They are a way for me to enter my setting, get a feel for my characters, and really “get into” my books. Usually I keep these boards private, but over the next couple of weeks I’m going to invite you in!

Today, I want to welcome you to Key Lake, Minnesota, the setting for Little Broken Things. Key Lake doesn’t exist, not really, but in my imagination it’s a cross between Lake Shetek in southern Minnesota and New Ulm. Think charming lakeside small town… Read Little Broken Things and you’ll be transported to late summer in the Midwest: plenty of sunshine, the scent of sunscreen, and some dark secrets hidden just below the surface. Here’s the link, friends! I hope you take a peek! And I hope you enjoy your first taste of Key Lake.

Randy Susan Meyers

 

I’ve been a Randy Susan Meyers fan for years. I stumbled across The Murderer’s Daughters in my local library one day, and picked it up on a whim because I thought the cover was pretty–and completely incongruous with the rather terrifying title. To say that it was compulsively readable is an understatement. I couldn’t put it down! Child endangerment stories are always a bit difficult for me to read, and this one was no different, but Meyers handled her subject matter and her characters with a deft, careful hand. I admired her courage. And little has changed. Meyers is still unafraid of tough topics, and her bestselling books have earned her an audience of loyal fans. I consider myself one of them.

Receiving an endorsement quote from Randy Susan Meyers was a bit of a dream come true. I’m an unapologetic fangirl and so grateful that she read–and enjoyed–Little Broken Things. Take a moment to check out Meyer’s new book, The Widow of Wall Street and add it to your TBR list!
