Smashwords.com is holding its annual “Summer/Winter Sale”–a kind of “Christmas in July” event. Tons of authors participate each year by heavily discounting their ebooks (available in all formats). As usual, I’m offering all my shorter books for free–including my new illustrated middle-grade chapter book–and my novels for $1 or $2. Hours of great reading for less than a cup of coffee (actually all three novels for less than a Starbucks’ coffee)! If you haven’t checked out my writing, here’s your chance to do it for loose couch change. If you don’t like my stuff, I’m sure you’ll find something among the thousands of deals being offered–but only until July 31!
Here are the links to my books. All my books are available in all the usual places in paperback and ebooks. The three short story collections are also out as audio books. Read. Enjoy. Support your favorite authors with reviews. Thanks to all the dedicated readers out there!
