Congratulations on 2nd place!  That is awesome!

Hi everyone, 

I found out late last night that there is a new deadline for the Launch Pad contest. It is being extended to next Monday 10/17. I’m not sure what the reason is for the change but never fear, Franny is currently investigating...

So, the competition continues! The good news is that Flight of Angels is still in second place and now there is time to pre-order a copy if you haven’t had a chance to do it yet.  Please help spread the word!  Every pre-order helps cement Flight of Angels position in the top 3. Here is the link to the book page:  https://www.inkshares.com/books/flight-of-angels

Things have gotten pretty exciting,  so if you would like to follow the action in the contest, you can click here and hit the Leaderboard tab: https://www.inkshares.com/contests/launch-pad-contest

Here’s the link again so you can help spread the word:  https://www.inkshares.com/books/flight-of-angels 

In related news, the author Alastair Luft featured me in a Meet the Author profile on his blog: http://alastairluft.com/meet-author-kate-merenda-hohl/ It was a great honor to get the chance to talk about my inspiration for the book and share some of the thoughts that went into creating the character of Franny. 

Alastair is the author of a terrific novel called  The Battle Within which explores the pervasiveness of PTSD among combat veterans. Here is the link for his book on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Battle-Within-Alastair-Luft-ebook/dp/B071JY227J/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507166234&sr=8-1&keywords=alastair+luft

Hi everyone,
This has been an exciting week. Thanks to all your support, Flight of Angels is currently in second place on Inkshares!   I’d like to welcome all the new followers of Flight of Angels, and give a huge thank you to all of you who have pre-ordered the book.

This chapter was inspired by conversations I had with my uncle about horse racing. Like the character Dom Marone, my uncle loved to play the ponies. This one’s for you Uncle Jimmy.
Let’s join Franny as she’s off to the races!

Hi everyone, I am so honored that Flight of Angels has been chosen by two of the Inkshares syndicates as their September picks: The Staff Syndicate and Break the Bechdel with Strong Female Characters! I’m so grateful to be supported by these two incredible communities. Thank you to everyone for your interest in Flight of Angels!
