Are you in the spirit of the season? Maybe I can help!
Today, I’m offering a free Kindle or Nook copy of my holiday short, Christmas in Dogtown, to anyone who emails me HERE and asks. It’s a good way to sample my writing, if you aren’t familiar with it, and maybe get you in the holiday spirit. It is a light paranormal about home and family and belonging. Rated G for good feelings! (Remember, if you don’t have a Kindle, you can download the free Kindle app for your computer or tablet or cell phone and read it that way.) So what are you waiting for? This offer disappears at midnight U.S. central time.
Next week, I’ll have a special guest on Thursday with a story benefiting the Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts still ongoing in New Jersey and New York.
The rest of Christmas week will be filled with fiction as I bring back some of the short stories from my Sentinels series. “Chenoire” is still to be found here, but during the week you’ll also have a chance to read (or re-read) “Rivalry” and “Intervention,” two stories about Jake and Alex Warin; “Pirate’s Alley,” a story featuring everyone’s favorite undead pirate Jean Lafitte; and “Santa, Baby,” the short-short that premiered last week on the Rabid Reads website. The stories will only be available until the first of the year.
In the meantime, here’s the blurb on Christmas in Dogtown—let me know if you’d like to read it!
CHRISTMAS IN DOGTOWN: A woman who spent years escaping her rural past learns that Dogtown, Louisiana, hides more family secrets than just the recipe for boudin blanc.
Resa Madere’s on the verge of losing it all. The boyfriend’s gone. The job’s history. Her beloved house is on the brink of foreclosure. She’ll do anything to save it–even spend a long Christmas holiday working in St. James Parish, Louisiana, helping her uncle run the family meat business. But the community of Dogtown, which has been home for seven generations of the Madere and Caillou families, has deep roots and deeper secrets. For Resa, going home is one thing. Getting out might not be so easy.
