#Free Book Days: November 22nd-23rd


QUEST FOR THE SIMURGH - FAIZAH'S DESTINY
The gods are at war and only a farmer’s daughter can save the world from Armageddon.

The village magician has gone missing.  His four pupils think he has left a clue to his whereabouts in the Magicalis Bestialis--the book of magical creatures.  They must seek the help of the elusive Simurgh, the mythical birds who know all the secrets of the universe.

However, this is not an easy camping trip into the mountains. Spirits, gods, and demons confront the four friends, who are not aware they’re being set up by otherworldly forces for a much larger task.

A farmer’s daughter, Faizah is chosen to lead the humans in the battle. She must persuade a slave, an orphan, and a rich merchant’s son to join in the battle on the side of good. Although divided by Dev, the evil god of war, the teens must band together to find the Simurgh, rescue their teacher, and stave off Armageddon.

Bad Spelling
Midnight Oil
Scotch Broom
Spellslinger (prequel short story only $3.49)


The Witches of Galdorheim Boxed Set: All of the above books in a single volume for only $11.99. That makes them only $4.00 a book when bought as a set with a short story thrown in free.

Quest for the Simurgh - Faizah's Destiny: $5.99

Cheryl Carpinello Hosts Kid Lit Blog Hop and Me

I'm visiting Cheryl Carpinello's blog today (the 19th) and there's a big blog hop going on at the same time. Click the big button below to find a lot of children's book authors strutting their stuff.

My topic will be on producing audio books for self-published authors (or authors with a publisher, but have the audio rights to their book). Free audio books are in store for people who leave a comment.

#Free Book Days: November 15th-16th

TOO LATE, YOU MISSED IT

Free on Amazon November 15th and 16th

This weekend, get your free Kindle copy of "Tales of Abu Nuwas - Setara's Genie" from Amazon.

The Tales of Abu Nuwas - SETARA'S GENIE 
A girl, a genie, a few demons. Would could go wrong?

Abu Nuwas sits in the bazaar on his threadbare rug; a cup and sign proclaim him a teller of tales. For one small coin, he bids passers by to listen. A poor girl, Najda, sells spices from a tray. Would he, she asks, trade a tale for a packet of spice? Abu Nuwas agrees and begins the epic adventures of a girl and her genie.

As did Scheherazade before him, Abu leaves Najda hanging in the middle of each yarn to keep her coming back. Between stories, he questions the girl about her life. He discovers that she’s been promised in marriage to an old man whom she hates, but she must wed him to save her sick mother’s life. The rich bridegroom will pay for the doctors the mother needs. Meanwhile, Najda sells spices in the market to earn enough money to keep her mother alive.

He relates the adventures of the bored daughter of a rich merchant, Setara, and her genie, Basit, as they encounter the creatures of legend and folklore: a lonely cave demon seeking a home; a flying, fire-breathing horse who has lost his mate; a dragon searching for his family; an evil genie hunting for the man who put him in a lamp; and a merboy prince cast out of his undersea kingdom.

BOGO - Missing, Assumed Dead

If you downloaded the free ebook last weekend, it's as good as a buy.
Buy the Ebook, Get the Audiobook Free*
*Purchase the ebook from Amazon, send proof of purchase to mgdasef@gmail.com, Or, you can PM at Facebook or G+. I will send a gift of the book through audible.com.

Missing, Assumed Dead
Prejudice, murder, insanity, suicide: Every small town has its deadly secrets.

When Kameron McBride receives notice she’s the last living relative of a missing man she’s never even heard of, the last thing she wants to do is head to some half-baked Oregon town to settle his affairs. But since she’s the only one available, she grudgingly agrees.

En route, she runs afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn’t seem . . . accidental. Especially when they keep showing up wherever she goes. Lucky for her, gorgeous Deputy Mitch Caldwell lends her a hand, among other things. Her suspicions increase when the probate Judge tries a little too hard to buy the dead man’s worthless property.

Working on a hunch and trying to avoid the Judge’s henchmen, Kam probes deeper into the town’s secrets and finds almost no one she can trust. With Mitch’s help, she peels away the layers of prejudice, suicide, murder, and insanity. But someone in town doesn’t like her poking around, and when they show their intentions by shooting her through the police chief’s office window, the stakes are raised. Kam must find out what really happened to her dead relative before someone in this backward little town sends her to join him.

And she thought Oregon was going to be boring.

BOGO-ITIS

Since I have lots of buy one, get one free deals coming, I only had post room for a few of the audio excerpts available from The Witches of Galdorheim Series. To make up for that, here's another sound clip, but with a twist. Spellslinger is a prequel story to the series. It's available in audio format along with the rest of the series.

This short audio book is FREE to those who comment on this blog post. Heck, I'll throw in the ebook as well. How are people managing to not take advantage of all this free stuff I'm giving away? I guess it's 'cause I'm the Cellophane Queen. If you don't get the reference, check out the musical "Chicago."

SPELLSLINGER (The Witches of Galdorheim)
Kindle Ebook
Print Book
Audio Book
What does a teenage half-warlock, half-vampire do to have fun? Why build an old west town on a glacier in the Arctic. There he can play at being the good guy sheriff up against mean old Black Bart. 

That things will go horribly wrong is a given. But how does Rune get into and out of the predicament? 

This prequel story to the Witches of Galdorheim series gives the reader a chance to get to know the smart-aleck kid, Rune, before he got his magic down pat.
