Right now it feels like the world is on fire and not in a good way. (At least for me it does.) So I thought I’d drop in and share a little good news.
First, I am very close to having book six done. I never like to commit to set publication dates because you never know when a pandemic will come along and wreck all your plans, but I’m hoping to get it finalized and out this week. Right now I’m re-reading books one through five right to make sure it all flows together. It’s something I should do before every release, but I don’t always. But this one wraps up a big arc of Matt and Maggie so I wanted to make sure of things before I go through the final draft of this latest book.
So, hopefully a new book in a week or so.
In the meantime, because reading books is how I cope with life and you may be the same, I’ve put a lot of my other books on sale. (Dead Man is also now on sale for 99 cents and Crazy Cat Lady for $2.99, but I assume you’ve read those already.)
Keep in mind that there is a reason I use pen names. Some of these other books have cussing in them. Or darker themes. But if you read a wide variety of titles, then you may want to check them out. There are also some non-fiction books I put on sale including a cookbook for beginners and one on budgeting that may be useful.
I could only do the ebooks because the print have underlying costs I can’t get around, so sorry to you print readers. (I’m one myself.)
Take care of yourselves out there. Mentally and physically. Hug your dogs. Virtually hug your family. It’s going to be hard, but we’ll get through.
(Click on the images for a page with links to the various retailers or you can just look them up on your favorite retailer. Only Erelia is exclusive to Amazon.)
Erelia: (Available on Amazon Only, $2.99 USD and in KU) A dystopian utopia. Life seems perfect on the surface, but the reader sees just what horrible actions create that perfection. Also has a pandemic subplot. (I had unpublished this one just because I thought it needed a sequel and I wasn’t sure when I’d write that sequel, so be forewarned.)
A Dead Man and Doggie Delights: (99 cents) First in what will soon be a six-book cozy mystery series set in the Colorado mountains. For lovers of Newfoundland dogs, Colorado, and quirky characters who like a little murder on the side. (Book 2, A Crazy Cat Lady and Canine Crunchies is also reduced to $2.99 USD.)
Something Worth Having ($2.99 USD): Contemporary romance bordering on women’s fiction. About a woman facing a breast cancer diagnosis who goes on a road trip with a man she is absolutely not allowed to fall in love with.
