Looking for something to read to break away from holiday stress?
I’m giving away a book a day until Christmas Eve, over at my Facebook page. Come join us!
I got some very cool news the other day – my book Wrapped Around Her Little Finger has been nominated for a 2015 eFestival of Words Best of the Independent eBooks Award!
To celebrate the nomination, the book is FREE at Amazon throughout Memorial Day weekend (through Monday)! It’s a collection of stories about a dad’s relationship with his daughter from birth to her wedding day – upbeat, sweet, and funny. Here’s a little excerpt:
“Day,” Annie says mournfully.
“Day,” of course, means “Daddy” in Annie-speak, which is something like Filipino. Or Hawaiian. Lots of extra vowels, or missing consonants, whichever way you want to look at it. Since Mike – who went through childhood with about eight thousand nicknames, some of them cute and clever and some of them bloodcurdling – will answer to pretty much anything, he’s never made an issue of the missing Ds. There are a lot worse things the kid could be calling him.
He considers the issue for a minute, the fact that nobody ever said, “Don’t turn on the lights.” What they (what Lindsay) said was, it didn’t make sense to have them on during the day.
Annie whoops and crows when Mike jams the plug into the socket and a thousand tiny lights come twinkling to life.
“You and me, sister,” Mike tells her conspiratorially. “If somebody asks, we’ve got no idea who did that.”
Check it out! (Just click the cover photo or the book title to go straight to Amazon.) I hope you enjoy it. 🙂
I’m going to be giving away FIFTY COPIES of my books, and a bunch of my terrific author friends will be offering giveaways as well. You’ll have to surrender your e-mail address (via PM), but we promise: your address will be used ONLY to send you your free book(s). No worries! You won’t be added to any lists, and you won’t get spammed.
You can check my books out via their individual pages here at my website. The other authors who’ll be participating also write in a variety of genres: SF, horror, romance, paranormal romance, dystopian — something for everybody! We’ll be spotlighting new releases, Halloween-y horror (ghosts! werewolves!), running some contests… and we’ll let YOU talk about your e-book wish list.
