|Jude Pittman wife, mother, grandmother, author and a reacher for her own particular destiny.
Writing since she was a teenager, Jude has followed her dream throughout her lifetime, and in the process has met and worked with countless others following their own personal dreams.
In the 1990's Jude began hosting a website promoting her own books and those of other authors with similar dreams. For a small fee Jude would create webpages for authors published by a number of small press publishers, restricting her clientelle to only those authors who were published by royalty paying, small press publishers and who had already acquired a reputation in their own fields. By pooling their resources Jude created a marketing platform to promote all of their books. During this time Jude also published two mysteries with Ellora's Cave's Cerridwen Press.
Time passed, Jude's experience in publishing grew and eventually she was ready to launch Books We Love. After a year as a small proprietorship, and a short time as a small partnership, Jude incorporated Books We Love Ltd. in Canada, and Jamie Hill joined her as the marketing manager and partner in building Books We Love from a small electronic press to the medium sized established publisher now launching the first 50 books of their print line. BWLPrint. Together Jude and Jamie have worked tirelessly to build a solid foundation for Books We Love, and Jude has continued with her dream of writing the kind of fiction she herself loves to read.

Sisters of Prophecy, Book 1
co-authored with Gail Roughton
What’s a girl to do? Beautiful young artist Katherine Shipton has a painting that talks, an ancestor who won’t stay in her own century, and a former boyfriend with a serious ax to grind against her new fiancé. She already has a full plate, but when said ancestor sends her tripping back and forth between the 15th and 21st century without benefit of psychedelic drugs, the poor girl begins to doubt her own sanity. Then her best friend, a high fashion model with more than her own share of psychic energy, and her troubleshooting aunt show up on her doorstep in response to a psychic SOS Katherine swears she didn’t send. Life couldn't get more complicated. At least, that's what she thinks until her oilman fiancé disappears in the Gulf of Mexico and a DEA agent knocks on her door.
"Fast paced, with some side-splitting dialogue, the novel kept me turning the pages. It's actually two stories--the one occurring in the past, and the one taking place in modern times. I was impressed that two writers could pull of the transition from one to the other so seamlessly and make the one so dependent on the other." ~ Kathy Fischer-Brown
"I've got to say that there is some dialog between a savvy female police interrogator and a cocky, not so smart male criminal that I thought was just the BEST and left me howling. Holy mackerel, that was just fabulous! I am glad there will be more to this series & look forward to Irene's story in 2015. Rest assured there is more to come but this book ends on a satisfying high note and NOT one of those pesky cliffhangers. Nice start to a series that celebrates the powerful love of "Sisters" no matter how they come into your life." ~ 5 Stars, Lomg Time DF Fan
"It was quick, but it was also exciting and interesting. I think many readers will find it enjoyable and a good read for a sunny afternoon or an evening indoors. It’s definitely a fast read, and it will entertain without eating away your entire day." ~ 4 Stars, OnlineBookClub.org

When a Native teen is found murdered in Stanley Park, Jesse and Martine are called in by the Vancouver Police to help catch a depraved killer who might just turn out to be one of their own.
Don’t miss this sharp and sexy new novella by mystery author Jude Pittman.
"I read this book shortly after I had visited Vancouver and visited Stanley Park. Fortunately, unlike the hero of the book, I didn't come across the murdered body of a young Native girl while I was there. What I did see, however, were many of the other places mentioned by the author, including the ferry ride to Victoria Island where the hero and heroine enjoyed a weekend together, and Jude Pittman's evocative descriptions took me right back to the very best parts of my visit. This is a great read." ~ Amazon reader Sheila Claydon

If you like an entertaining mystery that will confound you until the very end, DEADLY SECRETS is for you.
