Attention: Since Amazon has chosen to let third parties sell some of our books, with their fast track buttons, I encourage all readers to buy directly from the publisher, like Createspace, here and Smashwords. This way authors will get their due royalties, and you'll be assured of getting a new copy of the book. Otherwise nothing is assured.
It seems that we authors, and almost all people in the arts today have to stand up for themselves and pay attention to what is going on in the retail world. Amazon is a company no writer can ignore as it is a source of income, however, they do seem to be narrowing the profits for writers and publishers now. And the end result for the reader is that if you buy directly you get new copies. If you don't it may not be new copies.
This month represents a new genre for me with my STalker series. Not only will there be mystery, but romance and thrilling scenes. I hope you enjoy my first book: Afraid in the Dark, it will be released: June 15, 2017.
I've put some different books up for FREE. The books are: Always Remember, A Warrior's Survival, Cinderella Nanny. Also, I've had low prices on my books for a long time and I feel after numerous edits, changing covers that the increases aren't that detrimental. A writer can only give books away so long, and I was giving away the .99 cent books for nothing after the Vat tax was included, not so much on Smashwords as Amazon. But Amazon insists we carry the same prices on the books.
Come on guys, and girls, I'm seventy, even though I'm taking a bit longer, I am still writing every day and plotting new books for your delight. Please don't forget me. I'm still writing, just taking a little longer now. I feel like when an author writes so long, which I've been writing a long time, decades actually, that to keep from going sour or uninterested they have to try something new. I studied children's writing and graduated from the Children's Institute of Literature. So I dabble with children's stories. My series on Willy deals with a hard of hearing duck. I wrote that to make parents and children more aware that this can be a problem that if nicked in time will save children a lot of heartache. My mid grade short stories have a moral twist to them, uplifting and I hope beneficial to children and parents. I've also gone into teen and New Adult short stories of romance. So try some and see if you like them.
I hope you enjoy the covers, but if there is some you don't like drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know. I love new covers and I love to experiment and see what you readers do like.
Also there are a lot of New Adult and Young Adult short stories that I truly hope you enjoy. If you're looking for a quick read and yet fulfilling romance, check them out. I'm adding a few children's stories too.
I have fourteen books in the Brides of the West Collection, all stories stand alone so if you are only interested in certain ones, you won't miss something from another book. I have recently begun another Brides book, so I guess I'm not finished with them yet. I'm enlarging my Dream Catcher series, and working on the Connor Series too. Afraid in the Dark is my first Stalker book. I'm writing it as we speak and I hope it send real chills down your back when you read it. There's already several books in this series to come. The Brides of the West, and Red River Valley Brides Series are complete now. I'm going to try to finish the Dream Catcher series this year, and get busy on the Stalker series, along with some New Adult stories and children's stories for you. So try them you might really like them.
