Tuesday Deals: Free and 99 Cent Ebooks!

Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013

Welcome back to another installment of Tuesday Deals. This week we have perma-free, perma-99-cent, and ebooks on sale for 99 cents for a limited time—three novels and one short story in total. Please remember to check the prices before downloading or purchasing.

Happy reading!

anderson_1My first featured Deal is Maree Anderson’s SEER’S HOPE, a fantasy novel with romantic elements. SEER’S HOPE is permanently FREE on Amazon, Canadian Amazon, Kobo, Barnes and Noble, Apple, ARe, and Smashwords. For other venues, please check Maree’s website.

Hope is snatched from her home and transported to a primitive world of magic and capricious gods. The Dayamari people believe she’s a Seer and their only hope of salvation, but she’s blind—she can’t see anything at all, let alone the future. She must accept her destiny and learn to wield the awe-inspiring powers the gods have bestowed upon her. And if she’s to save those she loves from the horrifying evil that lurks in the darkness, failure is not an option.

gibb_2Tasman Gibb’s Contemporary Romance, SAVING JUSTICE, regularly priced $2.99 is on sale for 99 cents until August 15th at Amazon, Canadian Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble.

Marlo Croft, canine behaviorist at the Dog Haven Sanctuary in Halo Peak, Washington, has her life neatly organized. The trauma of her past is well buried, her emotions tamped down, and rehabilitating and rehoming damaged and unwanted dogs gives her the focused, contained life that makes her feel secure.

The arrival of a new rescue dog, Justice, also brings the unwelcome distraction of a handsome stranger who is to shadow Marlo and Justice through the dog’s rehabilitation.

Suffering guilt over the death of his wife, New Zealander Adam Guildford’s short contract in the US to research dog fighting is what he hopes will pull him out of the limbo he has floundered in for the past four years. He arrives prepared to tackle the emotional and behavioral needs of the rescued dogs, but completely unprepared for the way his presence unnerves Marlo and awakens his own dormant feelings.

As they start to gain Justice’s trust, Marlo loosens her grip on her inner fears and the simmering attraction between her and Adam heats up. Adam works carefully to dismantle the emotional barricades Marlo erected, until one day he unwittingly delivers the horror from Marlo’s past straight to her doorstep, an action that tears the three of them apart.

On sale for 99 cents until August 15th at Amazon, Canadian Amazon, Kobo, and Barnes and Noble!

In small Texas towns, strangers come and go…

Left in a Stetson hat, on the steps of the local bed and breakfast, Avery Callimer came into the world on a wing and a prayer. Raised by loving adoptive parents, she’s never lacked for love … only the knowledge of her past.

By day she works at the inn, but by night … Avery comes alive as lead singer in a band. Life was good … stable, until new guests blew into town.

Some strangers come with secrets and lies.

Lucas Bennett is one such stranger. Drifting from one mess to another has left him jaded. Doesn’t matter the dramas are never his doing. Giving it one last shot to make a fresh start lands him Harmony’s Echo, Texas and smack dab in front of the tantalizing Avery.

Despite his best efforts to ignore the burn Avery’s ignited within, he’s intent to keep his distance. Secrets have followed him. Secrets he doesn’t want Avery to know.

Each time they’re near the other, things heat up like a brushfire on a dry Texas prairie.

But maybe, after the dust settles and the smoke clears, love can bloom with a fresh start.

Tuesday Deals: 99 Cent Boxed Set and Novel Sales!

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

This week I’m featuring a discounted-to-99-cents two-novel boxed set by the same author, two individual 99-cent novels on sale for a limited time, and one permanently priced 99-cent novella.

As always, please check the prices at your favorite e-tailer before purchasing. I am not in control of whether the books are on sale on non-U.S. Amazon stores or non-U.S. Apple stores, etc., or whether an Indie author’s price change comes into effect on time. This is why I say to check the prices before you purchase. That way you won’t get an unpleasant surprise on your credit card bill.

Happy Downloading!


Contemporary Romance author Sophia Knightly’s TROPICAL HEAT SERIES BOXED SET, regularly priced at $3.99, is on sale for 99 cents from July 14-July 21st on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple.

Amazon bestselling author Sophia Knightly delivers two fun, sexy and heartwarming romances of her Tropical Heat Series in one bundled volume.

In Wild for You (Book One), Detective Clay Blackthorne has his hands full when he promises to safeguard an old college pal’s sister without letting her know what he’s up to. He never imagines that lively Marisol Calderon will knock his socks off and put a ring on his finger—and all at his suggestion! Their marriage of convenience is meant to protect her and Clay doesn’t plan on being hitched for long to the tempting beauty. But the honeymoon sure feels real to him…

Sassy Marisol is used to doing whatever she wants—and right now her plan is to shake up the hot detective’s hard-edged demeanor. But the fun turns to danger when a mystery stalker bent on marrying her marks her as his prey. Temporarily becoming Clay’s wife seems like a practical way to thwart the stalker. But as passion ignites and Marisol falls for the tender heart buried beneath the tough detective’s chest, Clay’s true identity is revealed and she begins to wonder who—if anyone—she can trust…

In Sold on You, (Book Two) Confirmed bachelor Dr. Marcos Calderon is in hot water. He needs to come up with a fake fiancée fast or he’ll disappoint his beloved grandma who’s arriving on the next flight to meet her. Proper social worker Gabriela Morales should fit the bill—but tonight, in that sexy, slit-to-there red evening gown, she looks anything but proper.

Gabriela only volunteered for the hospital’s charity bachelorette auction to benefit a cause dear to her heart. Now she’s reeling from the hot doctor’s bid of fifteen thousand dollars for a weekend date with her! She’s not sure what Dr. Handsome has in mind, but the smoldering look in his eyes is unmistakable…

99 cents until July 21st on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and Apple!


Campisi_2Mary Campisi’s Contemporary Romance, PIECES OF YOU (The Betrayed Trilogy: Book One), regularly priced $2.99, is on sale for 99 cents until July 26th. You can find it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and Smashwords.

Sometimes hiding in the shadows is the only way to protect your heart.

Quinn Burnes’s mother disappeared when he was only fifteen leaving him with a despondent father, a little sister who suffers panic attacks, and eight notebooks containing the truth about his mother. He guards this secret for eighteen years, until on an otherwise normal day, his mother re-enters his life, pleading for his help. She’s in danger and the only thing that can save her is reclaiming the identity she shunned years ago.

Quinn is a master of emotional detachment, from his successful career as a personal injury attorney to his strings of meaningless relationships with beautiful women who possess uneasy temperaments; a sure formula to keep his heart safe and insure he’s the first to walk away. Until he meets the mysterious ‘Danielle’ a woman with too many secrets who’s on the run from the abusive, estranged husband she shot and may have killed. Danielle isn’t like any woman he’s ever met, but can he risk his heart for someone who’s doing exactly what his mother did eighteen years ago? Someone who may ultimately leave him, just like his mother?

99 cents until July 26th on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, Apple, and Smashwords!



Another Contemporary Romance, this time by Susan R. Hughes, DIVIDED HEARTS is on sale for .99 until July 19th. Regularly priced at $2.99, DIVIDED HEARTS can be found on Amazon.

When Faye’s best friend, Jenna, is injured in a car accident, Faye is left to care for Jenna’s young child—expecting no help from baby Hannah’s father, Simon, who has never been a part of the little girl’s life. But when Jenna’s former lover unexpectedly reappears, Faye learns that Jenna never told him about their child; and now that he knows of his daughter’s existence, he wants nothing more than to bond with her. As the relationship between father and daughter grows, so does the attraction between Simon and Faye—but once Jenna recovers, they find themselves faced with a heartbreaking choice between their desire for each other and the best interests of the little girl whose future lies in their hands.

Set in Vancouver, BC, and on the picturesque Sunshine Coast, DIVIDED HEARTS takes you on an exhilarating journey through the passion, sacrifice, forgiveness and sweet surprises of discovering a love that’s meant to be.

On sale for 99 cents until July 19th on Amazon.


Curtis_4My last featured Tuesday Deal for this week is the Erotic Romance novella Compulsion, by Cassandra Curtis. Compulsion is permanently available for $.99, but still remember to check the price before purchasing, just in case something changes. Compulsion can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords.

NOTE: Compulsion contains Adult Content.

Lindsay Dannon has a dirty little secret. While she hides behind her plain and proper image at work, a wanton woman with a rich fantasy life lurks beneath the surface. The thrill of sex in public places, and the risk of exposure, is a compulsive itch she knows only one man can scratch—her boss, Jack Randolph.

The company’s “no tolerance” policy on interoffice dating is the only thing stopping her. Good thing Jack created the rules, because he’s determined to make all of Lindsay’s sexual fantasies come true…

Always available for 99 cents at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords!

Monday Deal: Susan Fox’s Finding Isadora

Monday, June 17th, 2013

I mentioned a few entries ago that I would be posting once a week about Free and Bargain (sale-priced) ebooks. I’m still going to do that, starting in a week or two, but it’s going to be on Tuesdays instead of Mondays like I originally envisioned. However, to start me off, a multi-published friend just put up her first Indie release, and it’s available free today, Monday, June 17th only. The author is Susan Fox and the book is FINDING ISADORA. FINDING ISADORA is regularly priced at $3.99. So hop on over to Amazon and check it out.



He’s the worst man in the world for her. So why can’t she resist him?

Raised by hippies, veterinarian Isadora Wheeler yearns for security, marriage, and fidelity. Her fiancé fits comfortably into her plans. When Isadora meets activist lawyer Gabriel DeLuca, who’s defending her father on an arson charge, “comfortable” is not the word she’d use. Gabriel awakens her passion and makes her question everything she knows about life—and love. Should she stick to the safe path or does she have the guts to follow her heart?

FREE today on Amazon.


Calling Canadian Romance Authors…

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

Once upon a time, there was a group of Canadian Romance Authors with an official web presence. For whatever reason, I didn’t join this group and it ultimately disbanded (probably because I didn’t join it—snarf!) (I’m a card). Now, thanks to one of the members of the original group, Canadian Romance Authors has been resurrected. We have an email loop, and as of today we also have a new Facebook page. Feel free to pop over to “like” the page and visit often to keep up on all our news, including contests, book releases and other wild and wacky Canadian thingies. Like, someone might post a picture of a moose sometime. Or a hole in the ground. You just never know.

If you’re a Canadian romance author and you’d like to join the group, drop me a line and I’ll put you in touch with the loop moderator. There’s also instructions in the About section of the Facebook page.

Bits O’ News

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Yesterday, HEAD OVER HEELS was featured on EBook Impresario as a Bargain Book. You can still go over and check the listing. Ebook Impresario also has a Facebook page, which you can “like” to receive updates about free and bargain books to your Facebook feed. Plus, they have a newsletter. Check ’em out.

While you’re at Facebook, you can go ahead and like my author page, if you haven’t already done so.

Also, if you like erotic romance with a humorous touch, check out my pal, my buddy, my lifelong friend, Kate St. James on Facebook. Did you know Kate’s erotic romance single title from Samhain Publishing, A LITTLE WILD, is currently a finalist for the Bookseller’s Best Award, Erotic Division? Well, it is! I think that’s pretty great news.

Congratulations, Kate!

Excuses…and an Idea

Friday, May 31st, 2013

The nice thing about not blogging often is that I don’t have 60 spam comments waiting for me to wade through when I log in. The bad thing is it looks like I’m getting lazy.

I’m not getting lazy; I’m just super busy with non-writing stuff and am just getting back into writing again after a trip to China with my husband, during which a family member had a nasty fall that eventually led to her demise. We made it back home in time to see her—thank God—but I have needed time to grieve as well as support other family members in their grief, and now, thank God again, we are gearing up to a happy time. Youngest Son is getting married this summer! Also, a niece is having a baby. Yay.

As for writing, I am working on revising and updating BORROWING ALEX for Indie re-issue, and it’s going very well when I have time to work on it. I’m looking at a July or August release, but I can’t get any more exact for awhile. I also have two other manuscripts in various stages of needing-to-revise or needing-to-polish, and I also plan to Indie publish those. Maybe one in 2013 and the other in 2014. Plus, I have my short story series to finish.

So, there’s lots going on, but behind the scenes.

Once June is here and a host of family obligations are behind me, I will try (note emphasis) to get back to a more regular blogging schedule. I would ideally like to blog twice a week, and I am considering making one of those days, or a third day, a post devoted to other self-published authors and their books. Nothing too fancy. I found when I hosted guest-bloggers that I spent precious writing hours working up posts and then trying to get people to comment so I could give away books from those talented authors. I can no longer afford the time to host guest bloggers, but I am thinking of doing a Monday Deals type of thing, where every Monday I would post covers, blurbs and links to a few Indie-published books that are either new or on promotion. I need to put some more thought into it and then get a lead-time going so I don’t feel inundated. Other authors do this type of thing on their blogs. For instance, author Lauren Royal featured one of my books on her Friday Freebies day not long ago. That is the type of feature I am thinking of implementing. It would still allow me to get the word out about authors and their books while also pointing my readers to some great ebook deals—other than mine!

What do you think?

Chatting With Medieval Historical Romance Author Diana Cosby

Monday, May 28th, 2012

Happy Memorial Day to my American friends!

I have a new interview up on my Articles page, with historical romance author Diana Cosby. Diana is retired Navy and donates 10% of her royalties to several worthy causes, including those that benefit American servicemen and servicewomen.

Visit Articles to read the interview. No, I’m not posting it here, as well. You have to muster the energy to click the link. If you can’t muster that energy, you don’t get to read the interview. Instead, ten push-ups!!!

Argue with me and I’ll make it ten thousand. And two chin-ups.

Grab Me, Hold Me, Make Me Read Good Books

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

By Diana Duncan

Whenever I start a new book, I always get jittery with anticipation. I’m about to embark on a new adventure. Meet new people. Explore new places, new worlds. I’ve been an avid book junkie since my librarian Grannie started taking me to work with her before I could even walk.

And, okay, yes, I’ll admit it—like any great addiction, tingles shiver up my spine when the first line (or first several lines) instantly grab me and won’t let go.

Opening lines can immediately establish characterization:

“Being dead didn’t make Jack Mercy less of a son of a bitch.” Montana Sky by Nora Roberts.

“Jules Cassidy was nervous. After years of working for the FBI, nervous didn’t happen to Jules very often anymore. At least not in a situation with nary a hostile gunman, armed terrorist, angry insurgent or crazed hostage-taker in sight.” All Through the Night: A Troubleshooter Christmas by Suzanne Brockmann.

“Meeting with a probation officer required a certain look. A jacket and tie. A body-hugging spandex superhero costume beneath his street clothes hadn’t been part of his plan.” As Good As His Word by Susan Gable.

Opening lines can also immediately invoke a mood with the setting:

“There was a storm in him, as black and vicious as that which bullied its way across the sea. It whipped inside his blood, outside in the air, battling within and without as he stood on the rain-slicked rock. The name of his storm was grief.” Morrigan’s Cross by Nora Roberts.

“It was the egret, flying out of the lemon grove, that started it. I won’t pretend I saw it straight away as the conventional herald of adventure, the white stag of the fairy tale. But when the big white bird flew suddenly up among the glossy leaves and the lemon flowers, and wheeled over the mountain; I followed it. What else is there to do when such a thing happens on a brilliant April noonday, at the foot of the white mountains of Crete?” The Moonspinners by Mary Stewart – (This book might be my favorite story of all. I’ve read it over and over, probably more than 50 times since I was about 14 years old).

Opening lines can also introduce you to characters who are immediately thrown into interesting, perilous, or funny circumstances:

“A late-night urge for an orange fizzy saved Nixie’s life.” Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb.

“‘Norman bastard!’ Quinn de Trefoid raised a brow at the Saxon knight’s arrogance but remained silent. Inwardly, he cursed his own stupidity for allowing them to capture him, for venturing so far from camp alone.” Knight of the Mist by Jennifer August.

Once upon a time, Minerva Dubbs thought as she stood in the middle of a loud yuppie bar, the world was full of good men. She looked into the handsome face of the man she’d planned on taking to her sister’s wedding and thought, those days are gone.” Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie.

After I dug through my massive piles and shelves of favorite books to research this blog post, I looked at my own manuscripts. The books I’ve written seem to fall mostly into this last category.

“‘Hold it right there, Frat Boy!’ The pissed-off feminine contralto froze Rory Devlin bent over with his Levi-clad arse in the air. One bare foot planted on the lawn, one precariously balanced on the curb, he gripped the rolled newspaper as he cautiously turned his head. A slender brunette dressed in white capris and a tank top the color of lemon meringue pie stalked through dappled June sunshine from the house next door. Radiating the fury of an avenging faerie, dainty raven brows slanted in a glower and golden sparks fired in wide brown eyes.” Deal with the Devil by Diana Duncan.

“Delaney Morgan didn’t find an unconscious naked guy on the beach every afternoon. The wild Oregon Pacific had spilled out shells, driftwood, sand dollars…and at sunset last night, a Celtic pewter and garnet triadic knot pendant she’d hung on a chain as a good luck charm. But a nude man was a first.” Sword of the Raven by Diana Duncan.

What about you? Whether you’re a reader or a writer, or both, you have favorite first lines. What are they and what do they reveal to you about the story? Why do you like them? Please share! (And remember to tell us the book and author).

Diana Duncan Guest Blogs Tomorrow!

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Tomorrow I’ll welcome my first (and probably only) guest blogger for 2011, paranormal romance and romantic comedy author, Diana Duncan. Please join us to celebrate Diana’s transition from traditionally published to Indie author. Diana is blogging about Grab
Me, Hold Me, Make Me Read Good Books and will give away an ebook of the winner’s choice of either DEAL WITH THE DEVIL (romantic comedy) or her latest, the paranormal romance, SWORD OF THE RAVEN. Both books are the first in a planned series and both are currently available on Kindle, Nook and Smashwords.

Please note that the winner must be capable of receiving an ebook gift from Diana from either Barnes and Noble (Nook), Amazon Kindle, or Smashwords, which covers several other eformats.

About SWORD OF THE RAVEN (Morrigan’s Legacy – Warriors of the Light, Book 1):

When destiny calls, you don’t hit ignore

Delaney Morgan’s ho-hum life begins to fray around the edges when her cop brother is framed and imprisoned. Determined to exonerate him, she starts poking her nose where it doesn’t belong. Things go from extra-ordinary to extraordinary with her discovery of Mr. Tall, Dark, and Naked washed up on a deserted Oregon beach.

Rowan MacLachlan’s no ordinary man. He’s a semi-Immortal Highlander. A Water Mage, a Supernatural Enforcer…and since the slaughter of his entire family, Chieftain of his Clan. Recently escaped from the clutches of the Sorceress Cearde, he’s drawn to Delaney’s newly awakening Powers. She learns her brother possessed similar Powers, and his “situation” is entangled with the magical forces he tried to shield her from.

Pulled into an epic battle of light and dark…with a kick-ass pair of boots and a Bon Jovi inspired battle cry…Delaney vows to help Rowan avenge his family, and free her brother from the dark forces holding him captive. First, Rowan must teach her to control and wield her new Magic.

When passion flares between mentor and student, so do their Powers. With Delaney’s help, Rowan plans to vanquish the evil bitch who killed his family. Even if it means betraying the woman he’s come to love.

One of them may be required to make the ultimate sacrifice.

Can love really conquer all? Betrayal. Evil. Even death?

Delaney’s about to find out. Because she’s destined to be the Sword of the Raven.

About DEAL WITH THE DEVIL (Devilish Devlins – Book 1): 

When Irish eyes are smilin’…beware! Because trouble—and love—isn’t far behind!

Paradise for software designer Cynthia Wagner means uninterrupted solitude to invent a brilliant video game, and save her job. But renovations on her city apartment force her to seek refuge in a temporary rental in the ‘burbs.

The promised Paradise morphs into Purgatory when she meets her new neighbor, a deliciously tempting Irish rogue sporting a wicked grin and to-die-for body. Worse, the handsome bachelor has noisy, drooly, havoc-creating baggage on his hands for the summer… rambunctious five-year-old twin nephews, a baby niece, and the kids’ yappy dog. Rory Devlin is a dangerous distraction—and he’s hiding a naughty secret.

Jackhammers and contractors would have provided more peace and quiet.

Stuck in the Suburbs of the Damned with Mr. Uncle-Turned-Mom and his wild menagerie, Cynthia struggles to meet her deadline. But she struggles more with her undeniable attraction to her devlish-ous neighbor.

Could it be that what Cynthia has mistaken for hell is actually the heaven she’s been searching for?

About Diana:

When her dreams of becoming a ballerina were quashed by early-onset klutziness, Diana Duncan took up the safer vocation of writing. Her first thrilling masterpiece—written in orange crayon—was titled “Perky the Kitten,” and became an instant bestseller with her grandparents.

Her childhood growing up as a military brat gave her ability to leap into a conversation with anyone, anywhere, anytime…and she always discovers a new friend in the process. This gift of gab perfectly equipped her for a career that involves making stuff up.

Di is famous for using seven words when one will do. She wields smart-assery like a samurai sword, and will be the first to volunteer in a catastrophe. Of course, she was probably the one who caused the catastrophe. She’s fiercely loyal to her friends and family…but in the event of the upcoming zombie apocalypse, she won’t hesitate to use them as human shields.

She loves her job as an author, and claims writing is the most fun she’s ever had while wearing her sock monkey pajamas. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and adopting abandoned curbside furniture to refurbish into treasures.

Diana published six award-winning books with a traditional print publisher before going rogue with Indie publishing.

Heads-Up! Book Give-Away This Week!

Saturday, November 12th, 2011

I haven’t hosted a guest blogger in nearly a year. That’s a long time, considering I was hosting every 1-4 weeks for a couple of years there. Those who are regular followers of my blog will note that I stopped hosting guests about the time I hurt my shoulder over-painting. That evolved into a rotator cuff injury in the summer of 2011 from which I am just starting to recover. So I thought I wouldn’t host a guest all throughout 2011. However, that changes this week. And probably only for this week, as I need to focus my keyboarding time on various writing projects for myself and Penny.

But a heads-up for this week, book lovers. I’m hosting romantic comedy and paranormal romance Indie author, Diana Duncan, on Tuesday, November 15th.

Be sure to drop by on Tuesday to enter for a chance a download of one of Diana’s two 2011 releases!
