Welcome to the Lake Morgan Book Festival!
Each year, Mr. Denton McCray and his eclectic team of volunteers hosts the most anticipated, and the most mysterious, book fest in a cozy, lakeside community near the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Though many accounts have highlighted strange occurrences, readers are drawn to the book fest each year by the hundreds, and authors are thrilled to receive a hand-delivered invitation to participate.
The season is autumn. The day is overcast. There’s an electric crackle in the air that foreshadows the arrival of approaching storms. Tops of trees sway under the weight of winds that bear more than the threat of rain. The book fest takes place in an old building that once served as a high school. It has been decades since students roamed the halls … living students, that is.
The Lake Morgan Book Fest opens at 6 PM and runs until midnight. So, grab a cup of hot tea, and dive in!
Be among the first to devour the story! Both Volumes release on October 31st, but you can pre-order now!

She once stayed in the haunted tower room at Borthwick Castle in Scotland, sailed the Seine in Paris, ridden a camel in Petra, shopped the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, and spent the night in an old Communist hotel in Bulgaria. Check out her other titles at http://www.KimberleyMontpetit.com

Lizzy is a dreamer, a hopeless romantic and an incredibly sentimental sap. Her teenage years were wrought with the same drama and angst most teenagers deal with, and her early adult years resembled a wild ride at an amusement park. She reads a lot of romance, but finds she identifies most with stories about forbidden love, and second chances.
Now in “mid-life”, Lizzy longs for the free feeling of lazy days and fun-packed nights, days on the lake, nights on the dance floor or listening to her favorite local bands. After several “not-so-successful” relationships, Lizzy married one of the first boys she ever fell head over heels with, 25 years later! They live happily in Texas with their children, and tons of books.
