Summer Sale!

on July 2, 2020

It’s summer and I’ve got two of my “summer” books for free at Smashwords this month as well as one of my non-summer books on sale for half off! The Smashword summer sale runs all month!

The first free summer book is Sweetheart Summer, a sweet contemporary small town romance. You can download Sweetheart Summer from Smashwords here.

Can small-town business competitors set aside their differences and find love in the second book in the Cranberry Bay sweet contemporary romance series.

Cranberry Bay sewing shop owner and activist Katie Coos campaigns tirelessly to preserve the community feel of the town she loves. Savvy and successful developer Sawyer Shuster, meanwhile, seeks to provide a future for his beloved childhood community through large-scale developments. When Katie reluctantly purchases an auction certificate for Sawyer’s handyman skills, both are determined to keep their distance. But as summer heats up, Katie and Sawyer’s feelings ignite until both must find a way to trust each other or risk losing not only their businesses but also their chance at love.

My second free summer book at the Smashwords July sale is Stained Glass Summer, a middle grade novel. This was my first published book and very dear to my heart! You can download Stained Glass Summer here.

Twelve-year-old Jasmine adores her photographer Father and wants to be an artist just like him. But when Dad abandons the family, Jasmine is sent to spend the summer with her Uncle on a Pacific Northwest Island. Soon, Jasmine is learning stained glass from island glass artist, Opal, and thinking she might just be developing a crush on Island boy, Cole. But, can she truly let go of her Father and call herself an artist by her own terms? The story will appeal to young readers between the ages of 8-12.

And my third book, Kids In Orange: Voices from Juvenile Detention is available for half off! This is a memoir about my experience running a poetry workshop with kids in juvenile detention. You can download that book here in the Smashwords sale. Happy reading!
