Summer News: E-Books, Flags & 25 Years Ago Columns

It has been a busy summer so far, both on and off my blog. Twenty-Five Years Ago Today is now in e-book format. It will be available at the price of $2.99 for a limited time, and through July 7, you can use this coupon code to purchase it for $1.99 at Smashwords: PF84F. It’s already on sale for $2.24 at Smashwords for the month of July, but using the above coupon you can get it for $1.99 for a very limited time. The book is also in the Amazon Kindle Store and in trade paperback.

Over the next few weeks, the e-book version will begin popping up on many other online retailer sites through various distribution channels, including Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo and Apple. You can read more about the book here.

My children’s picture book The Flag Keeper, which I gave away here as a PDF from Flag Day through July 4, will soon be coming out in paperback. You can receive updates by following the brand new Flag Keeper Facebook page. Look for a book trailer and red, white and blue web page in the near future.

Thanks to Tisha Berg for featuring my recent interview at She has an incredibly inspirational site for mothers who want to start their own business.

In June on my own blog, we met mystery/suspense author Darcía Helle’s Miami Snow character Nick Donovan; literary and contemporary fiction author Maria Savva told us about the mysterious Red Man from her childhood; and novelist and short story author Stephen D. Rogers shared what working for a direct mail company taught him about writing.

Also, Beth Kanell, author of the young adult book The Darkness Under the Water, shared a powerful memory about a life-changing year in Vermont, and Lynne Murray, author of the romantic comedy Bride of the Living Dead and the Josephine Fuller mystery series, recalled writing her very first mystery novel.

In July, we’ll share a special anniversary with mystery author Steve Liskow; mystery, children’s and fantasy author Camille LaGuire will look back at writing her swashbuckler novel; zoo mystery author Ann Littlewood will tell us about a time of career transitions; and Jenny Milchman will tell us about her start as a teenage writer. In the meantime, check out all their books in my Amazon bookstore and hope you’re having a great start to your summer.
