About Sarah Spann

Indie Author Sarah Spann is the type of person who doesn’t have a favorite color. A gypsy at heart who was raised on country music, green chile and change.
Since 2007 Sarah has worked as a freelance writer specializing in travel and style. She has written articles, web content and blogs for individuals, small businesses, and large corporations. In addition, she spent a year working as a pop music journalist and editor. In September 2011 Sarah published her debut novel Wildflowers Come Back as an indie author. You can read an excerpt of the book on Sarah's website.

Her second book is scheduled to be released on March 27, 2012 - Wildflowers Come Back - Karmic Flames

When Sarah isn’t writing or designing she can be found dining on gourmet food, spending time at the opera, and taming lions. Well…not really. Actually, you can find her making a mess in the kitchen as she tries out new and impossibly difficult recipes, watching all of her favorite shows and/or football on TV, and playing with her lazy, fat cat.

Sarah has started a Blog on her Homepage with a couple of posts regarding her adventures into Self-Publishing via CreateSpace and  KDP Select and gives insights and results about her decision to go with KDP select. She shows the ranking effects during and after the "Free Promo Days" on Amazon when her debut novel reached #1 in the Genre "Horror -> Ghost" and also briefly captured #12 of free books for Kindle.

About her first published book

Author Sarah Spann Thrills And Surprises Readers With The Haunting Paranormal Novel Wildflowers Come Back

Lyss is beginning to realize that sometimes we never really escape our mistakes…
Author Sarah Spann takes readers on a haunting journey through an historic, haunted Santa Fe inn in her debut paranormal mystery novel Wildflowers Come Back. Wildflowers Come Back is the first book in the Wildflowers Come Back series. The story follows Lyss–the snarky female protagonist who habitually lives her life according to the expectations of others–as she navigates through the shattered pieces of her life after the break-up with her long-term boyfriend leaves her jobless and living in a cheap motel. However, Lyss won’t be down and out for long. Just as a new year begins, Lyss is presented with the opportunity to start over with a live-in position at an historic inn; an opportunity which takes her down a path that will forever change her life. She will discover her gift, the trappings of sin and the outlasting effects of karmic bindings, as the past comes back to haunt her.
In the meantime the resurgence of a serial killer in Santa Fe has left everyone on edge. Has a murderous cult–once believed to be dormant–reawakened? Only one person can help stop the violence, but she doesn’t even know how to help herself.
Will Lyss listen to the voices that haunt her? Or will she trust the one person who can’t be trusted?
