So much news today! For me, the excitement began at 4 am when I opened my email and found a message from my editor informing me that The Samurai's Garden will soon be available in print form! It's being formatted for print at Create Space, which is a division of Amazon, and will available only at the Amazon website (unless you know me personally and want a signed copy from me!). I don't know what the price will be or exactly when it will be available, but I'll keep you posted here on this blog.
Second, Stephanie Michels and I are featured today at Susana's Morning Room. Please come and visit us at Susana's blog and leave a comment!
Third, my publisher, Astraea Press, is having a Birthday Party! AP is two years old now, and is celebrating by giving away TWO FREE BOOKS every day this month! All you have to do is go to the AP Blog at to see which titles are offered. You'll get a link to the books on Smashwords, along with a coupon code to enter so you can download them free! This is a great way to build up your e-library! Today's titles are Abiding Echoes by Kay Springsteen and The Sentence by Elaine Cantrell.
And there's one more freebie I'll tell you about! Astraea Press has a book club you can join simply by joining their facebook page: - once you're a member, you can send an email request for the book of the month (This month it's The Key to Love by Meg Mims) at and it's yours, absolutely free!
So much exciting news! I've got three new books to start on tonight. Happy reading!
