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?
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.
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!

I just finished book 4 and can’t wait for book 5! Hurry! 😊
Yes, ma’am! 😄
When will you release Mailboat VI? Thanks! Looking forward to it.
Hey, Lynnea! I don’t have a solid timeline to release Mailboat VI yet, but I’ll announce things as I know them. In the meantime, you’re welcome to join me and a bunch of top fans on Patreon! I’ve started releasing chapters over there AS I write them, so eager readers can get them as fast as possible. Right now, I’m on my break between Mailboat books–a long-standing tradition–so I can play with a Secret Side Project. I’m going to start releasing chapters from the secret project soon! For now, Patrons are the only fans who get to know anything about it. 😉
