Scotland In Relation To A Novel

I picked Scotland for WHAT IF… For more reasons than I want to elaborate here. You just have to wait and see when the novel comes out April 16, 2016

Until then, I came across this interesting article on BBC-Earth and wanted to share it with you, and along with the article, some of the most amazing photography of yet another magical place here on earth.

Next Stop for Author ML Kilian – Danville, California

On Saturday June 20, I will be in Danville, California for their annual SummerFest taking it all in. While there, I will be at Rakestraw Bookstore from 1-2p.m. hoping to promote my novels.

In case you are wondering Danville, California is mentioned in my second novel – Nob Hill, which will be available for purchase on June 26.

I guess you can say my book tour throughout the bay area was strategically planned.

Anyway, here’s how it works. If you happen to be in the area, and plan to attend the Danville SummerFest, stop by Rakestraw bookstore between 1-2 and say hello, and get a free bookmark. Then, buy(order) the first novel – Piazza Navona on the spot, and I will send you part 2 – Nob Hill for free on June 26.

Hope to see you there!!!

Novels By ML Kilian – Gift Idea For The Holidays

For the month of December 2014, Piazza Navona and Nob Hill are on sale through my Etsy store. Originally each book sold for 10.00USD. Through December they are on sale for 7.00USD each and if you buy both it’s a total of 12.00USD plus tax and shipping. The books come gift wrapped for the holidays.  Order your copy/copies now to receive the gifts before  Christmas.

Just a suggestion: It’s best to read Piazza Navona first. Nob Hill is part II.



To Simply Escape

I have a vision for places I consider the best escape for writing, with no one interrupting me but my humbled companion, mainly my dog. The setting has to be right for sure, the colors perfect, always water – lake, ocean or sea visible through the window of a room I’ve set up for writing – and music. Lots of music perfectly selected seducing my thoughts.
