Here we are only a few days from holiday weekend. How is everyone out there?

I know. Take a deep breath. Hold for a few seconds, and then let it out slowly. Don’t let the ;ast minute stresses get you down.

Are you looking for something to read, but don’t have a lot to spend right now?

Time to go over to Smashwords and check out their End of the Year Book Sale. Many of their authors have joined in the sale and have discounted their e-books until Jan 1. Some are even free!

Now you can’t beat a deal like that.

Treat yourself for the holidays! If you’re looking for one of my books, you can find them at my Smashwords profile page for any price you want to pay. Even FREE! (Though I hope you’ll throw a little change my way.)

So go on over to Smashwords and find a place for a short vacation break. Pour yourself a cup of tea, glass of wine, or whatever beverage you fancy, and get into another world.

If you’re looking for paperbacks or hardcover books of mine, go to my Amazon Author Profile page and find your next destination.

If you’re looking for Master of the Fleet, it’s under my pen name, Sultonna Nadine.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season. See you in the New Year!

Yes, it certainly is. And I know a lot of you are out there trying to get your shopping done. And if the weather where you are is anything like the weather we’re having, you’re doing it in the rain.

Don’t forget you can shop online to save yourself part of the stress and crazy drivers.

And if you have readers on your shopping list, what better gift can you get them than a book or three for the holidays?

Or maybe you need to unwind with a good book after working and shopping all day.

If you’re looking for paranormal romance, with some fantasy and magic thrown in, go on over to Amazon and check out my author page there. I have two series to choose from. And for magic, check out my book at Sultonna Nadine. All the books on Amazon are available for Kindle or hard cover. Most are available in paperback as well.

But if you’re looking for an e-book, at a discount price, check out Smashwords. Between now and January 1, you can set your own price on any of my books! This includes both series and Master of the Fleet.

While you can choose to get them for free, I hope you’ll feel generous and throw a little something my way. I understand money is tight this time of year, which is why I’m having the sale. And please review them after you’re finished.

So, stay safe out there. Don’t let the stress of the season get you down. Practice some good stress relieving techniques daily and get plenty of rest. Less stress and enough sleep will help you out there in the craziness.

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

And as always,

Don’t Forget…

Yes! I have the final edits for Too Many Talents. Now for a read through on my end and I can begin formatting it for ebook, paperback, and hardcover.

I’m not sure which bit I dislike the most–editing or formatting. But they are both right up there on my “do I gotta?” list.

So watch here for the release date. And if you want a little preview, go back and check out the post on Too Many Talents.

If you haven’t read the previous three books, go to Amazon and look for the Esperance Series.

Until later,

If this is you, then I have news for you!

All of my books and many, many more are now on sale at Smashwords!

That’s right! During the Month of July, Smashwords is having their Summer/Winter Sale. And I’ve added all of my books to the list.

During this month, you can try any of my books, both the Mellie Miller books, and Sultonna Nadine, for only $0.99 each. Now is a great time to try an author you’ve never read, or pick up the books in a series you’ve started.

Which books do I have on offer?

The Esperance Series–Three books from a fantasy world ruled by psychically talented First Lords. Mischief, magic, and romance await you there.

The Gambler’s Folly Series–A futuristic pleasure world. Whether you’re looking for a fun-filled night life, or a quiet mountain cabin, you can find it all on Gambler’s Folly. But don’t carry contraband onto this world. The shifters from Interpol’s Special Division are on hand to sniff it out–when they aren’t having mating issues, that is.

Master of the Fleet. Meet Richard and Anne-Marie Lemarnier. Share their ups and downs as they try to sort out a marriage with a very rocky start. On a world where magic is commonplace, Richard finds his magic doesn’t help his love life one single bit. Not to mention trying to trace the person who is using the magic to attack Richard’s business.

Yes, the sale lasts all month. But why wait?

Head on over to Smashwords and find something to read this weekend.

And have a wonderful July 4th, to those of you in the USA!

As always,

Don’t Forget…

To all the fathers out there, today is your day!

To everyone else, make sure those guys know just how special they are.

I was always close to my father, and since he passed away, I truly do miss him. Yes, I know I have memories, but it’s not like sharing a cup of coffee in the morning, or talking about trees in the woods.

Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing day, from everyone on Esperance, Gambler’s Folly, and the Cote d’Or!

And as always,

All right, I know it is the electronic age. Technology is everywhere, whether we like it or not. Everywhere you look, there is something else being done electronically.

But I wonder, how many readers prefer ebooks to print? Do people buy paperbacks and hardcover books anymore? Or are actual physical books a thing of the past?

I have recently been reading ebooks mostly because of the trouble I’m having with my eyes. I can’t seem to get enough light on the printed page to read the words. But I would much prefer an actual print book. There’s something about the feel of it in your hands, the turning of pages, and the smell of the ink.

It isn’t just the reading. It’s the whole experience. New books have the fresh from the press smell of the new paper and ink. Old books from a bookstore, especially the really old ones, have a musty, dusty smell. Sometimes, on the fly leaf you will find a brief note from a previous owner. Maybe it’s the date of purchase. Perhaps the book was given as a gift and there is a birthday or holiday message to the recipient of the gift.

On rare occasions, you might come across an autographed book and wonder who originally bought it. How did this book come to be in a used book store?

And how much are you willing to pay for a book? Do you buy ebooks from new authors, to try them out before committing to anything more expensive? I do this quite often with someone I’ve not read before. And then, if I like the book–and can actually see–I buy the next book in a print format.

Maybe you wait until they have a sale on, so you can save money. I like to do this if I’m completing a series, because I know I’ll probably binge read the whole thing.

If you’re looking for books this season, you can find all of mine in all formats at Amazon.

If you like ebooks, keep your eyes open for December 17, the start of the Smashwords seasonal book sale. All my books, and others, will be on sale for the holidays.

So drop me a line below, and share your thoughts with me. If I don’t see you again, have a wonderful and happy holiday!

Of course, it’s raining here in Georgia, so I think the barbecue is off for the afternoon. But at least my guy made it home for the weekend. We can cook indoors and watch a movie with the cats. They are, of course, pointedly ignoring him for being gone.

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Father’s Day. Give that guy a hug while you have him here. You never know when his time on earth will be over.

Looking for something to read later in the week?

Check out one of my series on Amazon!

And as always,

Yes, it’s that time again. Memorial Day. In the United States, it is a federal holiday set aside to honor military personnel who died in the performance of their military duties.

I know it isn’t, but it always seems like Memorial Day signals the beginning of summer. Maybe it’s because we always got out of school about then and our summer began.

Those of us in the marching band played in the town parade, whether school was finished for the year or not. We started at the school, marched through the town square, and then turned right to go to the cemetary. The eerie sound of the echo performance of Taps always brought tears to my eyes.

But let me tell you, those forest green wool uniforms were hot in the Ohio sun, whether marching or standing at parade rest. Complete with hats and gloves, we always hoped for a cloudy day.

Are you doing anything for Memorial Day this year? For many, it is a time for family get-togethers, barbecues, fireworks… Of course, around here, it seems any type of holiday is a time for fireworks.

I don’t have any family plans for the holiday, but I am planning something special for my readers.

A Book Sale over at Smashwords!

That’s right! Just click the link above to go to my author profile. All of my books, listed by series, will be there for you to peruse.

Beginning tonight, all my books will be available for $0.99 each. And the sale will go through Monday night. So if there any you need to complete a series, now’s the time to stock up!

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and holiday. Stay safe out there!

And as always,

Don’t Forget…
