Kelli’s Quill Newsletter - Happy Autumn 2021 Issue
Hi everyone! I hope you’re enjoying the cooler autumn weather and getting ready for my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!
In this issue of the Quill I’m showcasing my blog series, sharing info on my two new releases, flashing back to my horror stories and more. Let’s get started….
Two New Releases in Time for Halloween…
Just released! Silent Sentinel - A Mini-Thriller
Earlier in October, I released Silent Sentinel. This 4,100 word mini-thriller blends a crime story with the unusual.
Silent Sentinel - A Mini-Thriller
One afternoon, Valerie visits a flea market and meets a peculiar man who tries to sell her an ancient statue of Anubis—the Egyptian god of the dead. Despite her protests, the man insists that she must have the statue. Valerie gives in and brings her new “guardian” home. Later that night, Valerie awakens to discover an intruder has broken into her house. She’s forced to fight for her life and relies on Anubis to save her. When the police investigate, they make a shocking discovery about her attacker and his motive. Only then does Valerie realize how lucky she was— the statue was the last thing she wanted, but exactly what she needed.

Recently Released… More Than I Bargained For
I released More Than I Bargained For - A Paranormal Mini-Mystery in August. This 4,500 word mini-mystery blends offbeat humor with the paranormal.
More Than I Bargained For - A Paranormal Mini-Mystery
Katie doesn’t like going to estate sales. Why? Because she sees dead people. When Katie reluctantly attends an estate sale with her friend Diane, she gets more than she bargained for. The deceased former owner of the house, Grace, realizes that Katie can communicate with her, and she has a lot to say. As Katie pretends to shop, Grace tells her the story of how she was murdered—and reveals that her killer is still in the house. It’s up to Katie to uncover the murder weapon and get it to the police… before time runs out.

Need to vent what bothers you? Want to explore your memories? Try Journaling!
In case you missed it… Earlier in 2021 I released my non-fiction guide, Journaling Every Week: 52 Topics to Get You Writing.
This fun and innovative book is filled with hundreds of journaling prompts that cover your childhood, friendships, beliefs and values, your career, coping with grief, fears, forgiveness, your purpose, and much more.
Whether you are experienced in journaling or completely new to the process, this book is designed to get you thinking about—and writing about—your life, relationships, patterns, goals, and some of your fondest memories. You’ll benefit from writing about these thought-provoking prompts and learn something about yourself along the way.
Journaling is a useful tool for self-discovery. In your journal, you can explore a wide range of subjects, themes, and ideas, revisit the past, and vent about anything (or anyone). In a way, you play counselor to yourself by digging deep into your innermost thoughts and emotions and writing about how you feel.
Journaling Every Week makes a great gift for yourself or someone you care about. Order it today and start journaling!

Kelli’s Continuing Blog Series...
This year, I started two new blog series. The first is called Behind the Scenes. Each Behind the Scenes blog examines my romance novels. I talk about why I wrote the book, share my thoughts on the plot and/or characters, and reveal what I loved most (or least) about writing the book.
The second blog series is called Meet the Character Day. These blogs are fun chats with the heroes and heroines from my romances.
Each series is featured on both of my blogs. If you missed one, you can catch up here:
