Hi Dalene--this is Anne Canadeo (aka Katherine Spencer)yes , Barnes & Noble has Songs of Christmas in stores . You can search the title on their website, look for " pick up store" option, and put in your zip code to find it. Hope that helps and hope you enjoy the book. Just to answer other questions, a new Angel Island book will be out next Spring.. And just starting a Christmas book for 2014. Txs for all your wonderful notes. I appreciate your kind words.

I have the newest book. Got it last week from Amazon. Was so happy to see it continue even after Thomas Kinkades death. From what it looked like there is already plans for another Angel Island book also this coming spring. It would not be Christmas without a new Cape Light book.

Please say the Cape Light series has another Christmas book out this season! At Barnes & Noble, where I have purchased all the other books in this series, does not have a new one in their store where I shop. Am I missing it, is it just not being sold @ B&N? They are usually displayed by now. Please give any helpful information as to where the new 2013 novel can be found. This series has been one of my greatest treats to look forward to each year. Thank you!

It is about that time of year when I start watching the the Christmas story in the Cape Light series. I am so hoping that although Thomas Kinkade is deceased that these books continue. I have not heard anything about any new books. What is the status of these seiries?

I,too, am PRAYING,that neither of the series ends. I finally found really good books to read minus the smutt. You have amazing talent . Even though we will greatly miss Thomas Kinkade, you are the author, so why quit writing the books? Keep writing in memory of Thomas. I'm sure he would have wanted it that way too. Praise God above for your talents and keep the books coming--- Please???!!!

I love your novels of The Cape Light series and Angels Inn series!!! You are such a wonderful author!
I hope you will never stop publishing those series of books. I have a chronic pain disease and just lost my cat of 15 years. Those two novels really help me. The love and reading about how other characters reach their faith and beliefs. Makes us, as readers, really think about our own situations and belief systems and how we can relate to others and reach out to God. It's never to late, as you have proved over and over again.
Please, don't ever stop with those series! And the pictures just make the books feel even more welcoming. If you can gain access to a garden or gazebo for one of the books, that would be wonderful! May God bless you and your family! And may God bless all the readers who travel along with you!

I really enjoy both Cape Light & Angel Island books. I see where you indicated that there would be 3 more books. I only hope that when you do these last 3 books that you let them come to an end if you don't plan on doing anymore. I would hate that you add new people then we never know what happens. So I do hope you just end them. I am really going to miss these books I always looked forward at Christmas time to get a new Cape Light book then around Easter the Angel Island book.

The author of the Thomas Kinkade is actually Anne Canadeo writing as Katherine Spencer. I wrote her about the same ? Will the stories continue once i located her real name. Here is her response to me:
Thanks for your note. To answer your questions -- Yes, I have done all
the writing of these books. I was hired by a representative of Mr. Kinkade
to create a fiction series that he could put his name and art work on.
The town of Cape Light and the general theme of the series was insprired
by his work and created to expand the message of his artwork. I had hoped
that people who enjoyed his paintings would feel they had stepped into the
art work and gotten to know the inhabitants of those evocative streets and houses.
I also based the village of Cape Light, physically on two real locations.
The first is the town where I live -- Northport, N.Y., which is a small village
on the Long Island Sound, about an hour and half from New York City.
The other is the village of Ipswich, in an area known as Cape Ann, which
is about two hours north of Boston. I have used many town names and
other landmarks of Cape Ann in the Cape Light series.
It is unclear right now if the series will continue, though there will definitely
be three more titles published -- Season of Angels, which will be published
this coming Christmas. Another Angel Island book, to be published spring
2013 and another Cape Light Christmas book, for 2013.
I hope that answers your questions. I'm very glad you've been enjoying
the books and truly appreciate hearing from you.
I hope this helps other readers also.

I still say that Thomas Kinkade didn't really 'write' the novels. He lent his name because he was promoting his art. The books are very well written (I found some character inconsistencies that an editor should have found) and I don't see how Thomas Kinkade contributed, literary speaking, except to maybe offer some ideas. I think that Katherine will continue to write both series (Cape Light and Angel Islan) and Kinkade's estate will decide what she does about the book jackets.
