2018: Trick or Treat Reads – Get Your Free Books Here!

Free Books as Halloween Treats Five years ago, my pal and fellow author, Patricia Lynne had a brilliant idea. She calls it Trick-or-Treat reads, and here’s how she describes it: For those of you who don’t know, Trick-or-Treat Reads is a Halloween event where authors put their books for free and readers go trick-or-treating to get the books. BOOKS ARE THE CANDY!     My Halloween Freebie for You: For this year’s Trick-or-Treat Reads, I’m offering a free music album & lyrics book.  Yes, in addition to writing books, I’m also a singer/songwriter who plays several instruments. A couple years…

Hey Authors: Sign Up for a Halloween Blog Hop to Gain New Readers

Trick-or-Treating for Books! Have you ever wanted to go trick-or-treating for books instead of candy? Well, now you can!

Memoir Mondays & a Blog Hop for Non-Fiction

This Week’s #BiteSizeMemoir Prompt: Camping THE PLAN: I intended to spend the week reading books, swimming, stargazing, and sailing our little 12 foot boat. My sister had a tan to perfect, and fish to catch. My parents, I’m sure, simply wanted to relax. THE DISASTER: The August sun held out until we reached the lakeside campground. First came the splats of big fat drops. This crescendoed to a steady downpour as we frantically pitched our tent. THE REALITY: No swimming, fishing, sailing, or tanning. Instead, we told stories and read books. We played card games and Scrabble. Mom won the…
