Like a little mythology with your mysteries?

IF you do, you'll love Mae Clair's Point Pleasant Series. And you're in luck - you can grab the first in the series, A Thousand Yesteryears, for just 99 cents. But hurry - the sale ends Sept. 4.


I read book 2 and loved it! I snapped up my copy of the first book.

Mae says on her blog: 

A THOUSAND YESTERYEARS is the first novel in my Point Pleasant Series, but the story is complete (no cliff-hanger endings with the need to read further for closure). A blend of fact, fiction and creepy urban folklore, the novel plays off the legend of the Mothman and the true-life tragedy of the Silver Bridge collapse, a catastrophe that decimated the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
You’ll discover the” TNT,” an abandoned WWII munitions site, now part of a wildlife management area. Densely forested with steep hills, wetlands, ponds and tunnels, it’s a virtual labyrinth of secluded hiding places idea for a terrifying creature—or killer—to hide. The characters are everyday people facing extraordinary circumstances, including secrets, betrayal and murder.

Behind a legend lies the truth…
As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real…
Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse, but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of darker currents haunting the town. It isn’t long before Eve’s arrival unravels an old secret—one that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of a deadly killer…

Reviewers have said:

"Cate can really tell a tale. This was a very good story all about how you can mess things up but still get a second chance to fix it.
The way things all come together is really cool. Cate has done a fantastic job with this book and all the wonderful characters in it."
- Ramblings of A Book Lunatic

"...totally blew me away.  This is why straight contemporary romance is my go-to genre to read.  Ms. Masters has written a beautiful second chance romance that at times is heartbreaking, sweet and funny.  Plus, watching Carter and Sierra grow as a couple but most importantly as individuals is a feat that some authors get wrong.  Ms. Masters didn’t get it wrong, she got it right."
- Harlie's Books

"What a sweet and romantic story!! I instantly fell in love with both Sierra and Carter and couldn’t wait to read what happens.

Happy bookaversary to Going with Gravity!

It's hard to believe it's been seven years since my contemporary romance novella, Going with Gravity, was first published. To celebrate its bookaversary, I revised the story a bit. I also created a new cover that fits the story better, and is much more beautiful!

In 2009, the artists at The Wild Rose Press created this cover.
The story released on July 16, 2009.

I'm grateful to The Wild Rose Press, publishers and editors and cover artists, for helping launch my romance writing career. Going with Gravity was one of three stories published with them in 2009, and several more followed in later years.


In 2011, I requested the rights back, revised the story and released it with this cover, which is a little play on one of the scenes.


And when I realized that the story was about to celebrate its seventh year, I decided to freshen up both the story and the cover.

So, without further adieu, here is the new Going With Gravity cover. Ta da!

The novella was a 2011 EPIC finalist, and has had some wonderful reviews.



Reviews have described Going with Gravity as:   so compelling I did not want to put it down. The sexual encounters were sizzling and the ending was unexpected. There were moments of poignant emotional conflict.” 

And “What happens is what storybook romances are made of and what everyone hopes for in their lives. But, you will have to read this romantic and heartwarming novel to learn just when and why Allison realizes she might have met the right man, and why Wes made sure to meet her on that fateful flight. “

And praised the hero: “Wes, the hero, is so darned sexy, I wanted to take him home. I’m not talking about his finesse with the spicy part of loving; it’s his class, style and solidness of character. Wes struck a chord with me that makes him a keeper. There’s the part where Allison meets him again under somber circumstances. The way Ms. Masters describes the whole scene allowed me to visualize it. It’s hard to find the exact words to describe how it made me feel but it is no surprise to me that Allison could connect with a guy like Wes so readily. He’s written in such an approachable way, I fully believe that love at first sight can happen.”


It's a great beach read!

You can pick your copy up from Smashwords and Amazon. Other online booksellers will carry the updated version in a few weeks.

I hope you'll enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
