About the Author
Carol Burnside is an award-winning author traditionally published in short stories. Five of her novel length manuscripts have placed in numerous RWA chapter contests and won five, including the prestigious Maggie Award for Excellence. Her personal second-chance-at-love story resulted in a marriage to her high school sweetheart of thirty-plus years. They reside in northern Arkansas, where Carol enjoys the Ozark foothills from her office windows and drinks sweet iced tea year round.
Writing as Annie Rayburn, she produces speculative fiction, erotic romances. Imagine our world today with a humanoid race very much like us (Crainesians) living peacefully among us here on Earth and searching for their life-mate. They have the ability to communicate telepathically, can project visions and share dreams. Can you imagine? Not just phone sex, but dream sex? That's why they're also labeled soft sci-fi and lite paranormal. Talk about cross-genre sizzle!
While Carol/Annie enjoys the adoration she receives from her furbabies, what she really loves is hearing from her readers.

Yep, the old saying goes....you get what you paid for. Since this was free - guess what - not good. I realize it is a novella, but how do you expect to tell a story in just 15 pages? The rest of the book are samples of her other work. I will not be trying more books by this author, because even though free, I will not be paying for her books because this one wasn't developed..
