Regardless of the name she uses, all Linda's books are free of offensive language and explicit sex. Her characters are realistic, the plots believable and the endings always upbeat.
Romance: Linda's romance stories are certainly off the beaten path. Most have a prologue and epilogue from the male point of view. This is unique in romance. The stories focus on the building and maintaining of relationships in realistic life situations. No erotica; just clean wholesome romance stories.
Western: Rigsbee's westerns are fast-paced, generally a can't-put-down read. Most are novellas but they offer a full menu of mystery, adventure and action. The novel, "Blood Red" is Rigsbee's latest release. The title is a play on words, as it is actually an argument against violence - learning to control and channel anger.
Youth: Linda writes for children on up through young adult. Linda illustrates her children's books. Most are available on her HomeSpun Literature site as free downloads.
Short Stories: Linda hones her writing skills with short stories and flash fiction that can be read free and individually on DEAR TALES website. Most of these stories are also available in short story collections.
Novellas: A novella is longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel. It is Linda's style of "tight" writing that makes these stories memorable.
Handcrafted Books: In addition to traditional publishing, Linda also Home Publishes. She writes the book, formats the pages, designs the cover, prints and binds the books in her home office. She sells them at craft shows and online at her website, HomeSpun Literature. On this site, Linda also sells book accessories, such as book covers, Kindle/Nook padded covers, book bags, bookmarks, etc.
FREE online Reads: Linda maintains two sites of stories that can be read online. HomeSpun Literature contains novellas and novels, while Dear Tales showcases short stories, flash fiction, poetry and articles. All can be read free online, with option to buy a copy. On July 1, 2014, an annual membership ($15) will be required to read most of the stories on HomeSpun Literature. With the membership, a PDF download will be available as well.
Blog: Linda has recently started blogging flash fiction stories about characters in her books. These are not found in her books, but a convenient link at the end of the blog takes the reader to the related book. Unrelated flash fiction stories can be read on her wordpress site.
