Meet Author Tracy Krauss

Hello faithful JLB Creatives Fans!
This week we're happy to have 
a guest post from featured author
Tracy Krauss for our main event.

But first...

Just a quick "fill you in" on what's been going on with JLB Creatives over the summer:

Just recently Hidden Earth Volume 1 Maycly ebooks Parts 1, 2, and 3 landed ahead of the Hunger Games on Amazon! Part 3 held onto the #1 spot for a good run while Parts 1 & 2 held steady one slot ahead of the Hunger Games. It was an honorable and humbling thing to experience, and we're proud to have made such an achievement.

Maycly was written and published by: 
Author Janet Beasley and JLB Creatives. 


We're getting ready to publish our next book which will be a cook book.
This cook book is a companion book to the Hidden Earth Series Volume 1 Maycly.
"More Than Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup" is more than just a cook book. It holds restaurant character histories, menus, photos, and a large selection of recipes from the restaurants on Maycly - all fully preparable and edible right here on Earth! This amazing cook book is slated for a late fall release if all goes as planned...but we all know the snags that can happen when striving to make a publication the best it can possibly be. We like to say around here, "Quality takes time."

You may purchase Maycly's collection of paperbacks and Ebooks from Amazon:

Tracy Krauss is launching her book WIND OVER MARSHDALE on Tuesday, Oct. 16.

You can help her achieve ‘best seller’ status by purchasing the book at TODAY – and receive all kinds of cool free gifts while you’re at it!

About the book:
Marshdale. Just a small farming community where nothing special happens.  A perfect place to start over… or get lost. There is definitely more to this prairie town than meets the eye. Once the meeting place of aboriginal tribes for miles around, some say the land itself was cursed because of the people’s sin. But its history goes farther back than even indigenous oral history can trace and there is still a direct descendant who has been handed the truth, like it or not. Exactly what ties does the land have to the medicine of the ancients? Is it cursed, or is it all superstition?
Wind Over Marshdale is the story of the struggles within a small prairie town when hidden evil and ancient medicine resurface. Caught in the crossfire, new teacher Rachel Bosworth finds herself in love with two men at once. First, there is Thomas Lone Wolf, a Cree man whose blood lines run back to the days of ancient medicine but who has chosen to live as a Christian and faces prejudice from every side as he tries to expose the truth. Then there is Con McKinley, local farmer who has to face some demons of his own. Add to the mix a wayward minister seeking anonymity in the obscurity of the town; eccentric twin sisters – one heavily involved in the occult and the other a fundamentalist zealot; and a host of other ‘characters’ whose lives weave together unexpectedly for the final climax. This suspenseful story is one of human frailty - prejudice, cowardice, jealousy, and greed – magnified by powerful spiritual forces that have remained hidden for centuries, only to be broken in triumph by grace.
