As you know, I love doing multi-author series.  I’ve teamed up with Mary Alford, Ann Malley, Peggy Webb, Patricia Bradley and Kathy Carmichael in THE PHILANTHROPISTS! 

The Philanthropists is a series of suspense or romantic suspense stories that are short reads, meaning you can read each book in 90 minutes to 2 hours.  I’ve developed a fondness for short reads!  Let me tell you about the series…

There are 6 projects, and all are connected in that they have a philanthropist at their core.  But, warning, do not expect your run of the mill philanthropist.  You’ll find an interesting array of them in this series.  There are no cliffhangers, and the stories can be read in any order.

We’re releasing them one per week from November 5 – December 10.  These are exclusively at Amazon, written for Kindle, and in Kindle Unlimited.

Here’s a bit about the stories:
