Bargains in Christmas Reading

As December arrives, many of us begin “getting into the Christmas spirit,” and for me, that involves unpacking Christmas ornaments, listening to Christmas music, and, of course, reading Christmas stories.

If you, too, love reading stories set during the Christmas Season, you might be interested in three Christmas ebooks that are bargains at just 99 cents each.

christmas wishes box set3First, the recently published anthology titled Christmas Wishes: Seven Stories of Second Chances is an extra special bargain because it contains seven stories for a total of 99 cents. I’m honored to be included in this anthology along with award-winning authors Leanne Tyler, Mallory Kane, Kate McKeever, Juli Alexander, Donna Wright, and Karen Hall. You’ll definitely want to buy this limited-edition anthology before it goes off sale. Just click on the following link to go to Amazon and buy Christmas Wishes.

forgotten christmas web copy 3 Next, one of my own Barbourville novels, The Forgotten Christmas Tree, winner of the 2014 HOLT Medallion in the short contemporary category, is on sale at the moment for only 99 cents. Although it’s the fifth book in the Barbourville series, The Forgotten Christmas Tree can certainly be read alone. I’m happy to say that Amazon reviewers have rated it 4.6 stars. The price will soon revert to the usual $2.99 so grab it before it goes up by clicking on Forgotten Tree.

christmas-at-tiffanys-web-versionLast, and certainly not least in my opinion, is the short novella titled Christmas with Tiffany. This somewhat older story was first published in November 2012. Because of its length, it stays at 99 cents the year round, but it’s popular enough to rate 4.5 stars on Amazon. If you’re in the mood for a heart-warming Christmas story, click on Tiffany to buy.

And here’s wishing you all the joys of the Season!

Barbourville series prequel now available

Okay, I’ll admit it: my main reason for writing this post is so I can show off the cover for my latest Barbourville novel, Celebrations of Joy. I think it’s gorgeous, and major thanks go to my cover designer, the extremely talented Dar Albert.

While I’m at it, I’ll mention that this ebook is on sale on Amazon as an introductory special for 99 cents but will go up in price soon. In addition, I’ll add that this book is a prequel that serves to introduce the Barbourville series. Following is a brief summary of the book.

celebration-of-joy-web-copy

The day Melody Mills buried her mother was the day she vowed to save enough money to buy herself a one-way ticket out of Barbourville, Tennessee. Trouble is, she has no job, no home, and very few possessions.

Enter Judge Robert McCray, the most influential man in Barbourville, not to mention the most annoying, at least in the opinion of Connor Webb. The judge wants Connor to hire Melody to manage the bed and breakfast that Connor is trying to establish in the neglected Kessler mansion. Connor can’t really afford an employee, especially one he doesn’t need, but he can’t turn his back on this frail, impoverished woman who, for some strange reason, packs her depleted wardrobe in luggage that’s worth at least half a year’s wages.

With both Melody and Connor working hard and exploring new options for the old Kessler estate, the launch of a promising business is just around the corner. Unfortunately people they thought they’d left behind suddenly reappear and seem determined to derail their plans.

Will their love for each other be strong enough to help them overcome the challenges from their past and secure their dreams for the future?

Bow Wow is now 99 cents!

bow-wow-web-copyI’m pleased to announce that The Bow Wow and Meow Campaign, the most recently published book in the Barbourville series, is on sale for just 99 cents for the next few days. Here’s a little about the book:

Casey Trent is on the fast track as associate manager for an upscale department store in the city. Josh Preston is owner of a rundown farm in the country outside Barbourville, Tennessee. Casey is known as an up-and-comer; Josh, who takes in abandoned animals, is known as the cat-and-dog man.

Casey figures they have nothing in common, but when Josh tries to interest the citizens of Barbourville in building an animal shelter, Casey offers to help. The town can’t afford to support the center, so she suggests that she and Josh collaborate to raise funds for an endowment. Thus is born The Bow Wow and Meow Campaign.

As they work together to plan their campaign, Casey begins to realize that there are depths to Josh she hadn’t previously suspected, but nothing has prepared her to learn the full truth about his past. Once she does, can she find a way to forgive him, or is their tenuous relationship doomed to fade away?

If you haven’t yet read a Barbourville series book, this is an excellent opportunity to try one for just a small investment. To take advantage of this special price before it disappears, click on the following link now: The Bow Wow and Meow Campaign

Thanks, and enjoy!

Valentine-themed novella on sale

My Cupcake, My Love, which took first place in the Romance Novella category of the 2014 HOLT Medallion contest, is on sale through Valentine’s Day on Amazon. Priced at only 99 cents, this represents a savings of $2.00. Following is a brief outline of the story.

cupcake-web-copyBriana Galen is perfectly content operating her bakery in her hometown of Cedar Hollow, Tennessee, near the Great Smoky Mountains. She’s content, that is, until famous novelist Devin Morris moves back to town with his six-year-old daughter. Devin seems determined to think the worst of Bri, even accusing her of canceling her cupcake decorating class for children just to spite him.

Devin’s move back to the mountains from New York City was designed to comfort his daughter Kaitlin, whose mother deserted her to move to Europe with her lover. The last thing Devin wants is to become involved with another self-centered female, and Briana Galen appears to be just that. But if she thinks he’ll let her cancel that cupcake decorating class just because she’s busy, she’s got another think coming.

At the same time, who could have guessed that his volunteering to supply Valentine-themed cupcake decorations for Bri’s class would leave him with his own heart pierced by Cupid’s arrow? Now he can only hope that Cupid has Bri in his sights too.

If you’re looking for Falling for Dallas on the Kindle Summer Romance Deal page, it’s currently the 13th down from the top. (Good thing I’m not superstitious. 🙂 )

FallingforDallasFYI, Falling for Dallas is the second book in the Barbourville series (following A Summer Sentence), but it is also a stand-alone book. There’s no need for you to have read A Summer Sentence in order to enjoy Falling for Dallas. Following is a brief description.

Beth Ann Stanfield realizes that she’s no man’s dream girl. She’s a young widow with a son to raise, a huge medical debt to pay, and a monstrosity of a house that gobbles up all her extra cash. So when sophisticated, educated, and wealthy Dallas Vance moves in across Redbud Road, Beth Ann knows their mutual attraction is headed down a dead-end street. Can determination, stubbornness, and an abundance of love bridge the gap when two people are from such different worlds?
