I'm setting some of my books free! Let them run like the wind!!!! Right onto your Kindle. There are a few books that appear to not like the corral that is KDP Select (e.g., sell only from Amazon). Since they don't sell, I'll just give them away. They'll still be on Kindle, but after their KDP Selection expiration, they will become available in other formats (EPUB, PDF) and will spread further afield to places like Barnes and Nobel, Kobo, and a bunch of independent distributors where they will be pirated and put up on a Chinese website. They're all out there somewhere, so it makes little difference.

Mixed Bag - Short Story Collection

The same as Mixed Bag II, but without the adult material. This is kid-friendly.

A little science fiction, a bit of fantasy, plenty of humor, and some really shocking horror. These are tales to suit any mood. All stories in this book were previously published in on-line or print publications. The author is re-issuing the stories since an editor somewhere liked them enough to publish them in the first place. 


February 22nd - 26th

The Compleat and True History of the Witches of Galdorheim - 5 book box set

After 10 years in print as individual books, the Witches of Galdorheim saga is now presented with every word of of the four books and one short story comprising the entire series. This is it in all its radiant glory.

*NOTE: Compleat is an archaic spelling of the word complete. See Izaak Walton's "The Compleat Angler."

February is the Free-est Month

February is a short month with only 28 days to cause trouble, watch for groundhog shadows, admire Presidents, find someone to show your love with pretty flowers or fattening chocolates, and wish the State of Oregon a resounding Happy Birthday. And it's also the anniversary...oops, not this year. My hubs and I got married on February 29th, so this is a non-count year. Let's just say we're starting the fifth decade of not killing each other. A definite achievement.

Since so much is happening in such a short month, I have to give gifts. These gifts will cost you nothing and, best of all, cost me nothing. That's write it's a good time to hand out ebooks. 

Here's what's coming up in February. Forewarned, you can be all about getting the free stuff. The titles and background color shows which days which ebooks will be #free on Amazon. Note that "Missing, Assumed Dead" is free only on each Sunday of the month. The audio edition of "Missing, Assumed Dead" will be on sale when you get the ebook. I don't know how much of a sale, but Amazon usually knocks off half or more of the normal audiobook price.

About the Book

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 bird 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. 

Faizah, a farmer’s daughter, 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.
