Dear friends and readers,

cover_inasmallcompass_1It has finally happened: My first book, In a Small Compass – Vol. 1, was published on November 30, 2016 as a multi-format ebook by Smashwords. As many of you may know, the book comprises my first 15 (optimised!) short stories. I hope you’ll take time to check it out at Smashwords, where you can download the book for free.

In a Small Compass – Vol. 1 is available at many retailers. Mobi format is available at Smashwords.

    Karen Oberlaender is no stranger to a good read. She’s a voracious reader/reviewer and has just published a book of short stories of her very own. Can’t wait to read her words!

    Karen Oberlaender is a remarkable person with many talents. She has just published a collection of short stories. The price is amazing FREE. You will want to read these stories.

    Karen has been a great supporter of mine. She’s published her first book, and everyone should grab a copy.

  15. Ha, two different blogs allowed me to tweet it out twice because the link is different.
