Got plans for the holidays?

Looking for a special present? How about a book?

Mysterious Castle is a popular one with readers.
Publishers keep trying to get me to turn Magnetic Attraction over to them.

What kind of books do you enjoy?
* Adult crime fiction? Try Widow's Web and Corporate Snare.
* Historical Romances? Try Turnabout in Fair Play (set in Texas), Dreams & Secrets (set in California), and Magnetic Attraction (set in Colorado and Pennsylvania).
* Historical fantasy (with time travel)? Mysterious Castle.

Available in paperback by order through booksellers everywhere, such as Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Booksamillion, etc.

Corporate Snare: A Jim Cavanaugh Saga

Now available as print-on-demand paperback and as ebooks...everywhere! This is book #6. Honestly, it may take a couple of days to show up as available to the public, especially this being a weekend.

By the way, my husband and I went through every version of each book looking for misprints and typos in order to clean each one up...again. It's done and there should be no more hauntings by deleted mistakes. It was irritating to still find some. I clearly remember fixing many of them before. Computers simply aren't as good as they used to be! But I've recently learned a few tricks to avoid the mystical returning-typos dilemma. Number 1 rule, never save the manuscript to the hard drive! If it's not there, it can't mix up the new and the old. (Supposedly that isn't possible, but in reality it happens all the time! And no, it isn't user error.)

Where did the summer go?

Here it is a month into autumn. My, how time flies! I've been busy, no doubt, but as yet not much to show for it. Making plans and working forward, with nothing to show y'all yet.

Aiming high, pushing negativity aside, hoping for positive changes. I'd been so organized, laid out plans, and lined up support as needed...but "the best laid plans of mice and men often go asunder." (Did I get that quote right?) Mine went asunder. I have a backup plan, but it needs recharging. Hopefully very soon things will take off like a rocket. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, I'd like your feedback. If this site limits your access, please feel free to email me at with your comments or suggestions. Please keep in mind that I am not seeking solicitors of any kind, whether agents or merchandizers, and no spamming. I truly would like to know what you think, what you like or dislike regarding my novels and websites/blogs. If you want to and are able to, online participation is encouraged. Talk to me. Talk with me.

You can visit me on Facebook (DuannaLee Post) or on my special Facebook page Books by DuannaLee Petersen. I'd like to hear from you. (No spamming!)

Corporate Snare: A Jim Cavanaugh Saga

Published on as an Ebook on June 8, 2016.

This is a 3-stage process. First as an Ebook on Amazon, then as a paperback on Amazon, and lastly as an Ebook via Smashwords for nearly all other ebook venues.

I notice Amazon now includes distribution for iPad and iPhone with their Kindle Ebooks. I use a free Kindle reader on my PC. It works great!

Corporate Snare: A Jim Cavanaugh Saga

I have completed the final editing of Corporate Snare. As soon as the cover is completed, it will be released via the same outlets as my other 5 novels. I hope my readership enjoys this informal sequel to Widow's Web.

News Flash

I've been a bit distracted. I got engaged AND got married this fall. No kidding. And I moved north from Texas to South Dakota. It's been snowing here off and on ever since I arrived. Beautiful.
