A Boy Named Rabbit_kindle cover2

A Boy Named Rabbit, Book 2 in my Wake-Robin Ridge series is available as a FREE download today, tomorrow, and Sunday! (February 27, 28, and March 1). If you’ve already read Wake-Robin Ridge, now’s your chance to get A Boy Named Rabbit, for free.

“Evil’s comin’, boy…comin’ fast. Look for the man with eyes like winter skies, and hair like a crow’s wing. He’s the one you gotta find.”

The remote mountain wilderness of North Carolina swallowed up the ten-year-old boy as he made his way down from the primitive camp where his grandparents had kept him hidden all his life. His dying grandmother, gifted with The Sight, set him on a quest to find the Good People, and though he is filled with fear and wary of civilization, Rabbit is determined to keep his promise to her. When he crosses paths with Sarah and MacKenzie Cole, neither their lives, nor his, are ever the same again.

The extraordinary little boy called Rabbit has the power to change the world for everyone he meets, and the resourcefulness to save himself from the one person his grandparents had hoped would never find him. His dangerous and bittersweet journey will touch you in unexpected ways, and once you’ve let Rabbit into your heart, you’ll never forget him.”

If you haven’t yet read Book 1, Wake-Robin Ridge, you can download a free Boxed Set that includes both Book 1 and Book 2. It’s a great deal! What can be better than FREE? And what have you got to lose? 🙂

Wake-Robin Ridge: A Darcy’s Corner Novel

Swamp Ghosts Promo Blowing My Mind!

I don’t want to be obnoxious, but I’m just so truly happy at how well this promo is going. When I first decided to get busy and write a book about a year and a half ago, I was doing it for ME. Call it a Bucket List item, if you will. I wanted to write it and learn how to publish it. I have a theory that in order to stay young, you must learn something new every day, and you should also hang out with people younger than you are. (Not difficult after a certain point. I’m thinking by the time I’m ninety, all my friends will be in second grade!) 😀

At any rate, I wanted to write and publish a book, and satisfy a lifelong dream in the process. So I did. And it did surprisingly well, especially since I had no idea at all how to market it. (I’m STILL learning that part). But Wake-Robin Ridge was such a satisfying experience, I couldn’t wait to write another, so I started Swamp Ghosts immediately, and now I have a second novel (and a book of poetry) published, and all in less than a year. This time, I used social media a bit better, and even though I’m still a newbie at that, I think that has made a huge difference in the response to the first Free Promo of Swamp Ghosts.

I was so excited when I got up this morning and checked on how it was doing, I had to take screen shots for my Inspiration Board. They are VERY inspiring, believe me. See for yourself:

Swamp Ghosts is #5 of the Top 100 Free Books in Contemporary Women’s Fiction

ConWomfic2

It’s also #5 in the Top 100 Free Books in Women’s Romance Fiction

Womromfic2

And amazingly, it made the Top 100 Free Books in the Kindle Store, currently at #55! Wow.

Top1002

Now I’m more thrilled with all of this than you can imagine, and sharing it with you feels great. But the MAIN reason I’m sharing this is because there’s a lesson to be learned here, you Newbie Writers of all ages. It is never too late to follow your dream, and with persistence and hard work, you CAN do it! If I can do it at 70, with nothing but my long-ago high school English classes to fall back on, a lifelong love affair with reading, and a darn good editor, YOU can do it. You younger people have so much time ahead of you to perfect your craft, too. Something I don’t have, I know. But I’m going to keep on trying to get better with each book, learning stronger writing skills, and putting my heart into everything I write.  And by golly, when it’s my time to shuffle off this mortal coil, heading to that Great Library In The  Sky, I’ll have left something behind for my children and grand-children, and maybe for a few fans here and there, as well.

For me, that’s enough. I’m happy. Now you go and get YOUR happy, too. Take that first step, and don’t look back!

(And if you haven’t grabbed YOUR free copy of Swamp Ghosts, what are you waiting for? Go get it now. 😀 )

A Word On Free Books

kindlevsbooksEver wonder why an author would willingly give away hundreds of copies of his or her hard work for free? (And trust me on this…writing IS hard work.) The answer is simple: word of mouth. The more people that have read a book, the more it gets talked about. And the more it gets talked about, the more it gets sold,  and then the author can afford to stay at home and write another book. This is why you see Read more…

Summer Magic_

Since I have been at the hospital with my mother daily and haven’t been able to post anything new, I thought it would be a good time to run a promo for my chapbook of poems. Summer Magic will be available for free download Saturday, November 2, Sunday, November 3, and Monday, November 4. Hope some of you will check it out. The verses are very special to me, especially those that are about MacKenzie Cole (from Wake-Robin Ridge) as a boy of ten, exploring the fun of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It’s free. You can’t lose! 😀
