I’m Restarting the Blog!

Once upon a time, a long time ago… I ran a blog. In fact, before I even had any books published, I blogged about the books I was going to publish. And if you’ve been with me for a very long time, it’s possible my original blog was how we first met!

After not blogging for several years… I’ve decided to restart my blog. But why, you may ask? And what am I going to blog about?

Read on!

Oh, but maybe some housekeeping first.

That’s great, but… who are you?

Maybe you’re new here, and you don’t even know what I’m talking about. If that’s the case, let me introduce myself.

My name is Danielle Lincoln Hanna and I’m the author of the Mailboat Suspense Series.

A forgotten teen, all Bailey wanted was a family of her own. Instead, she found a body at the end of the pier…

Set in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, the series features the real-life Mailboat that delivers the mail house-to-house around the lake. Intrepid young mail jumpers must leap off the boat onto the piers to get the mail in the boxes. The catch? The boat never stops!

Here’s some footage I captured while doing research for the series:

Now that you know who I am and what I write, let’s talk about why I’m restarting this blog!

Why am I restarting the blog?

The fact that I get to sit down every day and write suspense is thanks 100% to YOU, my readers. You buy my new releases as soon as they drop, you talk about them non-stop to your friends, you drive from hither and yon to attend my book signings, you ask your local libraries and bookstores if they will pretty please carry Danielle’s books, etc., etc., etc.

My gratitude for all you do is never far away.

And while I can’t always sit down with you and let you know how much you’re appreciated, I can create ways for us to connect, even when you’ve already turned the last page in my latest book.

One way I do that is through my newsletter. Another way is through my Facebook page. But another way I can help us connect is through restarting this blog.

So welcome!

And if I haven’t made it clear already, THANK YOU for everything you do to support me as a writer. This is literally the only life I’ve ever wanted.

What can you expect to find here?

That’s what we’re going to find out! I’ve learned from my previous blogging experience that you start out thinking it’s going to be about this, but as time and your readers evolve what you’re doing, it turns out to be that. So take this list of ideas as just that: A list of ideas.

At Danielle’s new blog…

    • Pull back the curtain on Danielle’s life, what she writes, and how she writes it
    • Learn the story-behind-the-story of the Mailboat Suspense Series
    • Find out what Danielle has read, what she’s reading now, and what she wishes she had the time to read!
    • Be entertained by other random thoughts on Danielle’s mind

And from there, we’ll see what develops. I plan to post once a week-ish. Feel free to comment any time! I’ll probably even reply. 😉

And now… let’s blog on!

Halloween Flash Sale!

Happy Halloween!

I have to say, I’ve been looking forward to tonight since… Late August? I mean, 2020 has been a roller coaster, for sure. But lucky for all, Halloween is the most socially-distanced holiday we have. It’s outdoors; you can leave your candy in individually-wrapped baggies lined up on your front step; and no one is hugging anyone.

And me? I can’t wait to leave reality behind for a night and fly six feet away from the kids while dressed as a witch! (Photos to come in my newsletter! Subscribe now so you don’t miss them!) Also, I have NO idea what Charles is dressing as. I’m terrified.

Since Halloween will be a little different this year–if you’re taking part at all–I thought I’d provide you with a book to read while you maybe peek through windows at the little ghouls and goblins scooping treats off your front porch.

Did you know you can buy ebooks on my website, too? That’s right! I don’t just sell paperbacks. And Frankenstein-ly, my ebooks don’t get nearly as much love as my hard copies. Time to bring them up from the grave!

So to tempt you into giving them a try, all my ebooks are 15% off this week! You can download to your Kindle or Nook or literally any device you own.

My ebooks are ghosted away to your device via BookFunnel, a friendly service readers love! They’ll hold your hand from the beyond, walking you through the process of getting my books on your ereader, no matter what kind you have.

Any issues with your download? Just reach out to these helpful spirits–they’re waiting to communicate with you. You can email them at help@bookfunnel.com or call to them via their help page. Failing that, you could try a ouija board, but I’m not guaranteeing the results…

Are you reading this after Halloween is come and gone? No worries; I’m keeping this sale alive through Friday, November 6th so everyone has a chance!

Good luck, Happy Halloween, and I hope you enjoy your treat!
