As I mentioned over on my main blog, I use reading books as a refuge from stress. The worse life gets, the more I read.
Which is why I dropped the price on a number of my ebooks yesterday to make it a little easier for others to find a way to escape, too. That included republishing Erelia, which I had unpublished simply because I didn’t know when I’d write the follow-up to that book. (Still don’t, FYI. It’s hard to write about a dystopia when the real world seems determined to turn into one.)
But anyway. I wanted to drop by here and give you links to the books I put on sale in case any of them look like something you could escape into.
It’s important right now to take care of ourselves, both mentally and physically. I’m walking my dog daily and binge-watching Chopped episodes on Hulu while also devouring a large number of books. (I’m about to start re-reading the Katherine Kerr Deverry books now that I got ahold of the first two that weren’t in my collection. Hopefully they hold up on a re-read. If not, I’ll be scouring various sources for some new-to-me authors to read.)
So anyway. Hope you’re well. Take care. Here are some books that are on sale in ebook.
Non-Fiction ($2.99 USD each)
Excel for Beginners: A guide to Microsoft Excel for those who need to master the basics.
Budgeting for Beginners: A book that will teach you how to figure out where you are financially, judge what that means, and give tips for how to improve. Especially helpful right now for those who are finding themselves without a steady paycheck, because it covers how to approach irregular income like that. (Also available in audio as the Juggling Your Finances Starter Kit.)
Writing for Beginners: An overview of what a beginning writer should know to get started. Includes discussions of point of view, tense, as well as agents and publishing paths. (Also available in audio under the title The Beginning Writer’s Guide to What You Should Know.)
Don’t Be a Douchebag: Online Dating Advice I Wish Men Would Take: A snarky guide to online dating for men who aren’t doing so well at it. (Also available in audio. Some retailers may have a different cover.)
Erelia: (Available on Amazon Only, $2.99 USD and in KU) A dystopian utopia. Life seems perfect on the surface, but the reader sees just what horrible actions create that perfection. Also has a pandemic subplot. (I had unpublished this one just because I thought it needed a sequel and I wasn’t sure when I’d write that sequel, so be forewarned.)
A Dead Man and Doggie Delights: (99 cents) First in what will soon be a six-book cozy mystery series set in the Colorado mountains. For lovers of Newfoundland dogs, Colorado, and quirky characters who like a little murder on the side. (Book 2, A Crazy Cat Lady and Canine Crunchies is also reduced to $2.99 USD.)
Something Worth Having ($2.99 USD): Contemporary romance bordering on women’s fiction. About a woman facing a breast cancer diagnosis who goes on a road trip with a man she is absolutely not allowed to fall in love with.
