Emma Palova: Books, Biography, Blog, Audiobooks, Kindle


Follow me on my journey from writer to author of Shifting Sands Short Stories coming out on Amazon on June 30. 

I have named my book campaign Storyteller2017 because I am so excited about this epic year full of huge changes.

“When I don’t write, I like to get out to the lakes for inspiration.”

That is my favorite hobby: watching the lake. It doesn’t matter whether it’s the nearby Murray Lake or Lake Michigan, as long as I see water movement to calm my mind.

I recently explored the Stearns Beach in Ludington on Lake Michigan. I love to watch the  Badger head out across the lake to Wisconsin. 

Other beachcombers love doing just that as the memorial engravings on the beach benches state.

“They loved watching the sunsets and the Badger,” a statement about  people loving the area repeated throughout the beach park.

We plan on taking the ship this year for a vacation with Ludek and Ella.

Any change deserves a story about the transformation of a character in different settings.

The main setting in the book is the fist to be town of Riddleyville with its secrets and vices.

Come along on the journey of the Storyteller2017 for an adventure of a lifetime. 

Next: The beginnings of Shifting Sands Short Stories part 1.

The book is available now for pre-order. 
Starting tomorrow I will be publishing excerpts from the stories

Happy Father’s Day

This year we spent Father’s Day locally at our son Jake’s in Hastings. My dad Vaclav and Ella also came for some quality family time and grill near the Yankee Springs​ area and Gun Lake.

Usually we travel 500 miles deep into the Midwest to the banks of the Mississippi River in Prairie du Chien, WI for the fur traders Rendezvous.  It is also a rendezvous with our Des Moines friends Sheryl and Brian. We’re sorry that we missed it.

We didn’t go this year due to logistics surrounding the upcoming release of my new book “Shifting Sands Short Stories” which will be released on June 30 on Amazon. The book is now available for pre-order at

I’m very excited as I am ligning up my booksigning on July 16 at the Fallasburg one-to-one school house from 1 to 4 pm.

Everyone is welcome. Pictured below are all the men in my life except for my brother Vas Konecny.

Don’t Be Late… Don’t Make People Wait For You

I’ve always hated being late for anything. It puts you at a great disadvantage if you want to position yourself for pictures, story or an interview.
You don’t get the best seat in the house. And you miss out on the insider’s scoop.
Being ready and prepared is always the best strategy to success, and a roadway to new friendship.

Today’s Challenge: Don’t be late… don’t make people wait for you.
