‘Tis the season for new clothes, backpacks, pencils, and…BOOKS
I’ve created 50% off coupons at Smashwords for my e-books.

If you want to check them out, there are reviews on Amazon and Goodreads. 
Buy yourself a couple of books. Proceeds go towards buying myself a new computer so I can continue this story.

Forward Steps

For those of you paying attention (and looking for a voice over job, perhaps), I have some deal for you.

First off, it’s official. “At Last” is available across all e-reader platforms. To celebrate this milestone, I’m offering 50% off on both books through Smashwords:



 Go to Smashwords, use the coupon codes and before you can say supercalifragilisticexpealidocious, you’ve got good books cheap.


and if you are inclined to leave review in your wake (Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, Barnes &Noble…), please do so.


In the words of Vice President Joe Biden, “this is a big fucking deal.” (He really said that to the President when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. The one the Republicans have voted 52 times to repeal. And are suing the President because he he’s not enforcing some provisions of it).its moving me closer to the tipping point where I may bump into someone one the street with one of my books. With the advent of the e-reader, I’m not likely to see a paperback clutched under the arm, but maybe I’ll be recognized. THAT’S rock star status.

The other “thing” is that the same advances in technology that have gotten me to publish also allow the possibility of converting “These Foolish Things” and “At Last” into audiobooks. I just need vocal talent. And maybe a producer. If you are interested/curious, follow the link.

When this happens, I think I will pass out in a coma of joy.

So, to recap: half off at Smashwords and YOUR chance to become the next Morgan Freeman.


Ta Da!

Semi big news today.

For starters, “At Last” has been accepted in the Smashwords premium catalog which means that the e-book is not only available through the Smashwords site, but will also be available for purchase through the Barnes & Noble website, Kobo, Page Foundry…

This is cool. This is really cool.


Secondly, I just finished uploading samples from both “These Foolish Things” and “At Last” to ACX to POSSIBLY (not a done deal by a long shot) be turned into… AUDIOBOOKS. All my actress friends looking for voice work? Find a producer and audition. I’m serious.

I am not a religious person (spiritual, yes, with Protestant – not fundamentalist, Protestant – leanings), but I try to be careful with pride. It is one of the seven deadly sins (along with gluttony, of which I have been accused. By a manipulative control freak who realized I had rejected her influence. That’s a different book). I am happy for my friends and their accomplishments rather than proud of them; to me (and only to me) pride is appropriate when you had a hand in their success, like teaching a kid to ride a bike and the kid goes on to win the Tour de France (without later being stripped of the title for doping). Me being proud, though, can be a highway to arrogance. And arrogance gets me in trouble. So, I am happy and relieved that I have gotten “At Last” to a point where it can be more widely accessed. And given the nonsense I went through to get the samples of the books loaded into ACX (Really. Actress friends: go audition. Be a producer), happy and relieved to have that important first step behind me.

All in all, a good day.



“What’s that?” you ask. “Some kind of a secret code? Is treasure involved?”

Sort of. See this?


You type that there code in here:

Smashwords. See where it says “Coupon Code?”

Between now and February 4, if you plug in that code in the title line,

you can buy this book for 50% off the list price of $5.99.

$3.00 for a book that is getting reviews like:

“I really really loved this book and the characters. There were so many emotions I went through while reading Liz and Ty’s story happiness, amusement, love, hate, pain, and sadness. “

“I love a good love story…and this one didn’t disappoint. This romance novel was also full of wit and humor, between the two protagonists, Elizabeth Gardner and Tyrone Hadley…a real battle between the sexes.”

“These Foolish Things is a quick but wonderful read about a man and a woman who find in each other the piece that makes each of them whole. Great story that appeals to the almost-dead romantic in me :)”

And that’s just a sample.

Seriously. A coupon good for 50% off a well-reviewed e-book.

Such a deal.
