I'm pleased to announce that at the start of December I will be having a book sale on Amazon. All three Kindle versions of my books will go on sale for either 99 cents or for free. There's a little something for everyone. The Changelings in an epic fantasy in the style of The Lord of the Rings. Three Floating Coffins is an original fairy tale adventure good for older kids and teens. Captured in Color is a collection of brief stories for people with only a few minutes to spare between decorating and buying gifts. Paperback versions of each one are also for sale on Amazon.
For as long as she can remember, Sylvie has embraced her role as the priest's obedient daughter. All she wants is to marry her fiance and lead a quiet, normal life. But between droughts, food shortages, and the slow invasion of her desert homeland, even those modest dreams seem out of reach. Then one sweltering summer day, her best friend Matthew reveals a devastating secret. Sylvie is a Changeling: a fantastical creature given human form and switched with the priest's real daughter. And she's not the only one.
What happens when you can no longer trust your family? This is what 13-year old Odele wonders when she and her two older sisters are sealed in coffins and cast into the sea by their father, the king. A priest has prophesied that one of the princesses holds magic that will destroy the kingdom. Only Odele knows the truth. The priest is lying. On the run and unsure of who she can trust, Odele undertakes a journey to find the one thing that may defeat the evil priest: a magical amulet her mother hid years ago. With time running out, Odele must pry open the secrets of the past before she loses her family forever.
A magical necklace that strangles whoever betrays its owner. A plum wine shared between a Japanese ghost and an American exchange student. A stalker who paints portraits of the love he can never see. Eight miniature science fiction and fantasy stories capture moments of love, loss, and choice that shape the characters and the world they live in. Perfect for those who want a daub of inspiration and a spatter of philosophy to brighten their day.
On a personal note, for the first time ever, I'm going to be running an advertising campaign on Amazon. I've never done this before, so wish me luck! I also want to say thanks to everyone who's supported me this past year: anyone who's purchased and read a book, who's written a review, who's recommended my books to a friend, or who's passed on a link to one of my blog posts. I am so grateful! As a small independent publisher, I do not have a large advertising budget or big stores selling my book, so I appreciate everyone who helps to spread the word. Happy Holidays and have a wonderful day!
