White Sheets & Rosy Cheeks - Katie Mettner up for Kindle Scout Program

Introducing White Sheets & Rosy Cheeks, a new novel by Katie Mettner currently up for nomination for Kindle Scout! You have six days left to meet Eli, Diana, Molly and the ghost that helps them become a family, Uncle Sal. What is Kindle Scout? It's a reader driven publishing process that lets the readers tell Kindle Press the books THEY want to read. If, after a 45 day vetting process that includes reader nominations, the book is selected to receive a publishing contract, anyone who nominated the book gets a free Kindle copy of it a week before it releases. What's not to like about a free book? Read on for more info about White Sheets & Rosy Cheeks.


Dr. Salvador Brennan left the earth a lonely and regretful man. Given a chance to right his wrongs, he returns to Bearsfield, Wisconsin, to manipulate two broken hearts into the greatest love story of all time, from beyond the grave.
The first step is convincing his nephew, Eli Sheets, to leave his life in Michigan and move to a tiny town in Wisconsin. Having put the plan in motion before he died, he bequeathed his rundown house to Eli, with the hope that time had healed his wounds. Eli and his three-year-old daughter, Molly, arrive on a late spring afternoon, and Uncle Sal wonders if Eli sees the peeling paint and sagging porch as a way to put the past behind him. When Eli meets his next-door neighbor, Diana Forrester, does he catch a glimpse of his future?
Initiate Operation Molly.
‘Ghostie’ befriends Molly, and together they teach Eli and Diana that the yellow brick road is paved with acceptance and forgiveness. Waiting at the end of the road is a love that will heal their broken hearts, and bring them together, forever.

I asked Katie how she came up with the idea for White Sheets & Rosy Cheeks and her response is below.

That's a great question, Tobi! I saw a writing prompt about writing a romance with a ghost who either brings two people together or keeps them apart. It made me think back to a time when my daughter was about two, so nearly thirteen years ago now, and we lived in a house in a small town where my husband taught. The house in White Sheets, is indeed an exact replica to the house there, right down to the squirrel in the basement (you're gonna wanna read this book, I'm telling you!). Along with that old house came a paranormal visitor that only my daughter could interact with. She called him Ghostie and they were 'friends' for many months. I don't want to ruin all the fun surprises in the book but suffice it to say, if it's an interaction between Ghostie and Molly, chances are good, it's a real life event. 

As for Bearsfield, Wisconsin, well, as you know I was born and raised in Wisconsin, but there is no town called Bearsfield. However, the town where that old house sat on South Second Street was in the home of the Bears, so I decided to make the mascot for the real school district the name of the town. I wanted to have some fictional license with it, but wanted people from the area who read the book to smile when they put two and two together. 

Thanks for asking me to stop by to talk about White Sheets & Rosy Cheeks. I truly appreciate all the nominations and your readers time today. 

Katie Mettner writes inspirational and romantic suspense from a little house in the Northwoods of Wisconsin. She's the author of the four part epic family saga, The Sugar Series, The Northern Lights Series, the Snowberry Holiday Series, Kupid’s Cove Series and The Magnificent Series. All of her books are written against the beautiful backdrop of the Midwest and are a mix of new adult romance, romance, and romantic suspense.
Katie lives with her soulmate, whom she met online at Thanksgiving and married in April. After suffering an especially bad spill on the bunny hill in 1989, Katie became an amputee in 2011, giving her the much needed time to pen her first novel, Sugar's Dance. With the release of Sugar's story, Katie discovered the unfilled need for disabled heroes and heroines! Her stories are about empowering people with special circumstances to find the one person who will love them because of their abilities, not their inabilities. Katie has a slight addiction to Twitter and blogging, with a lessening aversion to Pinterest now that she quit trying to make the things she pinned.
