It’s only 12 days until Christmas! My shopping is mostly done. I still have to buy a gift for my husband and I don’t have a clue! This Christmas is really special for several reasons. First, our children are healthy and happy. Our younger daughter got married in September and she and her new hubby are so perfect together. They’re working hard to make a life as Mr. and Mrs., decorating their home and doing all the fun and exciting things newly married couples do. My older daughter and her husband moved back to Alabama and are searching for a house. This will be their first venture into home ownership and it’s also a big, exciting step. This Christmas my husband and I are celebrating for the first time since the horrific injury I suffered in 2010. Though the damage is permanent and many aspects of how I do things are changed forever, I finally feel as if I can actually have a relatively normal life again–I can be me, just a little different! For the first time in eighteen months I’m actually excited about the future instead of terrified. My self-publishing venture is a huge successful and we are so very thankful.
As I contemplated what to talk about today, I decided that since it’s so close to Christmas rather than talk about anything I would much prefer to give all of you some very special gifts. First, anyone who comments today and on my next blog, December 27th, will be entered to win a Kindle or Nook ($100 value) to be given away on Saturday, December 31. But, I also didn’t want you to have to wait until the end of the month for a lovely prize that everyone can win today! I have several very dear friends who are also self-publishing and we decided to offer up some free and special deals today!
Peggy Webb has launched her Donovan’s of the Delta series. This series spans five books, three of which are available as digital releases on Amazon, BN.com, et al, as ebooks right now! Nobody can make you laugh and cry quite like Peggy. The Donovans of the Delta romance series showcases her talent in spades. The books follow brothers Paul (a small-town minister), Tanner (a former NFL quarterback) and Jacob (dare-devil firefighting pilot), and twin sisters Hallie (teacher of special children) and Hannah (marine biologist studying whales in Alaska) as they meet their match in the game of love. Look for Donovan’s Angel, Sleepless Nights and Hallie’s Destiny now. The final two will be available next week – Any Thursday and Higher Than Eagles. Anyone who comments today will receive a free digital copy of Donovan’s Angel as a special Christmas gift from Peggy! Just email Peggy through her website www.peggywebb.com and she will provide the coupon code for your special gift!
The series is one I know you’ll enjoy and I’m so pleased Peggy was happy to share one of these lovely stories with anyone who comments today! What a treasure to have such an awesome friend! That’s something else I am so very fortunate to have so very many of–amazing friends!
Speaking of amazing friends, Regan Black is another treasure! I have known her for many years and I will never forget when I was offered the opportunity to read her first Shadows of Justice book, JUSTICE INCARNATE. I was blown away by this lady’s talent. Wow!
Whoever said, “You only live once…” didn’t know Jaden Michaels. In every life she’s chased down a predatory demon, exacting her fatal brand of justice, only to lose her own life in the process. A millennium of efforts means it’s past time for her to find the one weapon that will banish the demon forever. Not only must she battle to avenge the souls od the demon’s victims — she must battle for the love that has always managed to slip through her grasp.
Luckily since I read Justice Incarnate, Regan has been very busy and has added four more titles to this fantastic series. Look for Invasion of Justice, Veil of Justice, Tracking Shadows and Shadows to Light. Do not miss this series! Regan is also giving away the first book of the series, Justice Incarnate, to anyone who comments today! Just email Regan through her website, www.reganblack.com for your free digital Christmas gift!
Now, I cannot talk about great books without mentioning the phenomenal CJ Lyons. Her Hart and Drake series spans three books so far, Nerves of Steel, Sleight of Hand, and Face to Face. For this holiday, CJ is offering the first book, Nerves of Steel, at a special price of .99! Be sure to check out this series if you haven’t already! You will not be disappointed!
CJ worked extra hard to help me with venturing into this awesome new world of self-publishing. She and our own Toni Magee-Causey were instrumental in keeping my spirits high and keeping me focused on my career as I recovered from my injury. I am not sure I would have been able to accomplish that goal without these two strong, caring ladies!
And, if you haven’t already, be sure to check out my new Faces of Evil series. The series launched with Obsession. And the second book, Impulse, realeased on December 2nd. I hope you’ll pick up one or both at the special holiday price of .99 for Obsession and only $2.99 for Impulse! Both books are in the top 20 on Amazon’s bestselling romantic suspense list. They are also in the top 100 of the bestselling Thriller list!
Besides emailing Peggy and Regan for your free gifts, do not forget to comment today to be entered into the drawing for the Kindle/Nook giveaway! Finally, thanks to all who stop by Murder She Writes. You have cheered me on and helped make a horrifying time in my life more bearable. You have shared in my joys and remained strong in my times of pain. Have a safe and wonderful Christmas! I’ll see you again on December 27th!
