Super Natalie is already getting stellar reviews!

Amazon Reviews on Super Natalie:

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Book! October 5, 2013

By Integrity Counts

“Super Natalie was spooktacular fun to read! Without giving away too many riveting details, I have to give five stars to Caitlin McKenna, who has written another great book. She is so skilled at getting the reader to identify with her characters – they are funny, real, and so well-constructed that I kept thinking about them even after I finished the book. It’s great to find an author who has consistently created stories that are compelling, charming and filled with plot twists that I could never predict, but are always exciting.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Natalie September 29, 2013

By Joan

“Natalie can see and talk to the dead. I enjoyed reading all the difficulties she has in her life with her special gift. I couldn’t put the book down as it is fast reading and it shows what happens with her many jobs, her love life, and her family. The comedy though out the book makes it a fun book to read.”

Caitlin’s newest book, “Super Natalie” is out!

Super NatalieSynopsis:

Natalie Dalton can’t hold down a job. It’s not because she is constantly late, has a terrible work ethic or doesn’t try. It’s because she is plagued with a gift she’d rather give back. Natalie can communicate with ghosts—annoying, persistent ghosts who choose to have a word with her at the most inconvenient times, often at work with bosses and colleagues around.

Fired from her umpteenth job and nearly out of cash, Natalie accepts an offer to appear on the low-brow, sensationalist TV talk show, World’s Weirdest Hobbies, to discuss her unusual ability, but more importantly to collect a paycheck. Unfortunately, a spirit appears as she’s being interviewed and ends up embarrassing the host of the show by revealing a juicy secret. The host goes ballistic and the clip of his attack goes viral, which catapults Natalie into the limelight and lands her a reality series as a paranormal investigator.

With her financial future secure, it looks like Natalie’s life is finally going to run smoothly for a change. Then she meets Ryan Emery, a gorgeous, sweet, funny guy who is working on her new series. Natalie could really fall for him except for the fact that Ryan is a major skeptic. He doesn’t believe in ghosts and never will. This presents a problem when a persistent spirit wants Natalie to give Ryan a message—one that will dramatically change his life. Now Natalie must somehow get Ryan to believe. Can she do it without ruining a potentially great relationship?

As Natalie carefully navigates her precarious situation, she suffers a loss which makes her question her own beliefs. With both of their lives turned upside down, Natalie and Ryan lean on each other and soon learn that what they truly need cannot always be explained with logic and reason.

In the process of writing a new book!

I can’t believe we are halfway through May already. Been doing a lot of voice over work on movies and TV series. I’ve recently finished working on Fast & Furious 6, Man of Steel and The Internship, all out soon in the theaters. I don’t know if you’ve had a chance to catch Bates Motel, the new A&E series, but it’s creepy good. I looped the first season and now it has been picked up for a second season. Yay! It’s a great show. I work with a group of fantastic people, so I’m looking forward to doing more voice work on another ten episodes.

I am finally back to writing. I had to make a decision on whether I was going to write another science fiction novel or another chick lit. Chick lit won due to great sales. Thank you, everyone! So, for those of you who enjoyed, My Big Fake Irish Life and Manifesting Mr. Right, I’m currently writing my third chick lit about a girl who sees ghosts. I will keep you posted on the release.

I do have some good news for those who enjoyed reading my dystopian, science fiction novel, Logging Off. It is currently optioned with a great producer who is working hard on getting it made into a movie, so fingers crossed!

Hope you all have a fun, relaxing and safe summer.

We drink, we laugh, we sing Pogues songs, we talk in fake Irish accents (some of us more successful than others). So give a listen for ’tis truly grand! Slainte!

To My Avid Readers!

I’m so glad you all are enjoying my chick-lit books. I wasn’t going to do a paperback on MANIFESTING MR. RIGHT like I did on my other two books but because of all the requests you’ve sent me, MANIFESTING MR. RIGHT will be available in paperback in about 8 weeks. I’ll keep you posted! Of course it is currently available in the e-book format on Amazon and B&N, along with my chick-lit MY BIG FAKE IRISH LIFE, which is about an actress stereotyping herself in order to get work in Hollywood. LOGGING OFF, my dystopian, science fiction thriller is also available in e-book and paperback format.
Hope you all are having a great summer!

Cheers,

Caitlin

News: Manifesting Mr. Right is officially out!

Great news! My next novel, Manifesting Mr. Right just went live on Amazon.com! You can download it for 99 cents. It should be going live on Barnes & Noble, later today or tomorrow, if you buy need the Nook version.
Manifesting Mr. Right, my second chick lit novel, is a light, fun, summer read that would be great to take on vacation or to the beach.

Book Synopsis:

While standing at the altar, about to marry a handsome, charming successful attorney, Ashley Braxton catches a shared look between her betrothed and her maid of honor—one which tells her she can’t go through with the ceremony. And when she’s crying in the bridal room of the church, trying to figure out where it all went wrong, she has an epiphany. Ashley realizes that she’s been the consummate pushover her entire life, and now she’s living a life for everyone else but herself.

Jessie, Ashley’s carefree friend from college, tells Ashley that she can have any life she wants. All she has to do is manifest it. Ridiculous, Ashley thinks, and not understanding the power of manifestation, she blurts out her dream life to a couple of strangers in an elevator.

News: Manifesting Mr. Right is coming soon!

Hi Everyone,

I’m sorry I’ve been absent for a while. Just wanted to let you know that my next chick-lit,Manifesting Mr. Right, will be available for sale late June or early July. I will keep you posted. I’m only releasing the e-book right now, but if enough people ask for the paperback, I will publish one. Selling the paperbacks are a little more difficult because the page count actually sets the minimum price. I had wanted to sell my paperbacks under 10 dollars but I’m not allowed. I would owe Amazon and Barnes & Noble money for each book sold. LOL.

I was able to lower my paperback price on my science fiction thriller, Logging Off, to 11.99–so if you haven’t bought the 99 cent e-book and would like a paperback, check it out. Still waiting for the price change on B&N, but Amazon has it updated.

One more thing. YOU GUYS ROCK! I just wanted to thank all of you who have bought My Big Fake Irish Life and Logging Off. Thank you soooo much! And for those of you who have left such wonderful reviews, I am so very grateful. You, alone, are driving my sales on Amazon. I truly appreciate all of you.

Talk to you all soon!

Three Dogs + Squirrel + My Garage = Long Day

So, a few hours ago, I was sitting outside on a beautiful California day, wondering what I should write for you guys when I noticed one of my dachshunds lying in the grass, perfectly still, watching a gray squirrel moving closer and closer to her. Because I’m an animal lover, I’ve never encouraged my dogs to kill squirrels. I thought about getting up to scare the squirrel away, because it obviously was clueless and needed my intervention, but then, I saw how excited my dog was. She was visibly trembling, no doubt thinking how, any minute, she’d have her first kill. The squirrel was still a good 6 feet away, and I knew my doxie would still have to get up in order to chase the squirrel, which would give the squirrel plenty of time to get away. But as the squirrel moved another six inches toward her, my dachshund-terrier mix who was at the fence, turned around, saw the squirrel, and immediately went after him.

The poor squirrel was in a total jam since he had two dogs descending on him from two different directions, so he did the only thing he could. He ran into our garage. I ran after him and my now three dogs taking chase. The poor thing had climbed one of our shelves and was hiding in a open box with paint supplies. By the time I ran across the yard and into the garage, my smallest dachshund had already climbed two rungs on the ladder that was leaning against the very shelf where the squirrel was hiding. The squirrel was chattering with anger, fear, and disgust as I rounded up my dogs and put them inside the house, so he could leave.

I waited for the squirrel to come out on his own, but after thirty minutes of him not moving, and my worrying that my dogs were doing serious damage to the door by trying to get out, I had no choice but to go up the ladder and get him. As I tried to put the lid on the box he was in, he jumped out and ran behind metal cabinets. It then took me another hour to find him, block off any direction he could go besides out, and then I actually had to push him out of the hiding space he wedged himself into with a feather duster!

By the time I got the back door to the garage closed and the dogs calmed down, it was two hours later. I guess I should have gone with my first instinct and scared off the squirrel when I had a chance. Then again, I might still be sitting in front of my computer, wondering what I should share with you today.

St. Patrick’s Day

I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy St. Patrick’s Day. I hope you will be enjoying it with your family and friends. In honor of the day and everyone Irish, and everyone who’d like to be Irish, here are a few of my favorite Irish Blessings:

“May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

“May God grant you always…
A sunbeam to warm you,
A moonbeam to charm you,
A sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.
Laughter to cheer you.
Faithful friends near you.
And whenever you pray,
Heaven to hear you.”

“May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day.
May songbirds serenade you every step along the way.
May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue.
And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.”
