Showcasing Echelon Press Authors - Karen Syed

Lost and Found

Allison is not having her best day. Thanks to the weather, an insignificant flyer on her windshield opened up a big ol' can of worms. Even the rain can't smother the sparks that fly between Allison and her new neighbor.

About the Author

Karen Syed owns Echelon Press. Every day is a success for her as she grows herself and her business. She has several novels published, along with articles and short stories. As a previous bookstore owner, she was nominated for PW for Bookseller of the Year. She is committed to encouraging everyone she meets to seek a more positive quality of life by reaching for their dreams.

She is currently writing a Steampunk series called Petticoat Junction. With more than a twenty-five years experience in the book industry, she hopes this one will propel her into the bestseller category.
