Becoming Brigid by Lisa Shafer

It's taken ten years to get to today.  But the book is FINALLY available.  Finally.
The Kindle website won't let me click the button to upload the book's content.  Thus, the e-book is on hold until I can get that issue resolved through their "contact us" folks -- who apparently don't work on Fridays. (Maybe by next week I'll hear from them.....)

But, in the meantime, let me present my new baby!


I've actually had the cover for a year.  It's my idea and my dad's artwork + Max's formatting.  Dad did the water color wash, then drew the Tree of Life separately -- and much larger -- on a different paper in pen and ink.  Then Max put everything together for us (with Dad supervising) with his photo software.

Here's the book blurb:

Pepper Kircy has definite plans for her future. And she thinks she knows everything about her life -- at least until she meets Dougal, a man with way too much information about a past she doesn’t remember. Suddenly, her geeky, ghost-hunting dad and her mortician neighbors aren’t quite as ordinary as they seem. But then, neither is Pepper. 

Dougal’s tempting. He quotes poetry and insists on calling Pepper by the name she never uses: Brigid. Soon, she can’t get him out of her dreams. So, in spite of all his weird talk about a missing goddess and a long-lost stone, she could really like this guy. Maybe even enough to change her precious plans. 

If he'd just stop trying to kill her....

And here's the link to buy a POD copy.

I have SEVERAL contests planned, but I won't announce them until I resolve the Kindle website issue.  Check back again soon.  I promise to be giving things away to celebrate my new book!!


  1. Congratulations--wanted to click on your YouTube link, but this seems to be impossible. Not because of the YouTube/China problem, but because the VPN is moving at a slug's pace. :/ (Can your book be ordered in hard copy? Will try to find out!)

    1. Yes, Mary. Here's the US link. I don't know about China.
