I hope everyone had a great weekend. Looking outside this morning and seeing the remnants of snow, and watching the reports of all the people not thinking about ice on bridges, I was glad I didn’t have to get out in it. I hope those of you who had inclement weather this weekend stayed safe and warm.
A new Drooling for Books review is up. John’s been under the weather and, like so many of it is seems, has had family emergencies to deal with as well. But he’s back to work and starts the New Year off with a review of Written in Time by Jerry and Sherry Ahern (published by Baen Books).
Here’s a reminder as well that Dave Freer’s Teen/Early YA novella, Without a Trace, is now available as an e-arc.
Also, Wedding Bell Blues by Ellie Ferguson is on sale for $1.99. It is available at the discounted price through our site, Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
Our spotlighted short story is Fancy Farmer by Pam Uphoff. It is free on our site and available for 99 cents through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
First, if you haven’t seen today’s post over at Mad Genius Club, run — don’t walk — to get there. Kate Paulk has put up the opening scene to Impaler, which we will be bringing out in March. If you’re ready for a new take on the legends of Vlad the Impaler/Dracula, this is the book for you.
Second, don’t forget our specials this weekend. Wedding Bell Blues is on sale of $1.99. If you like a bit of romance with your suspense or a bit of suspense with your romance, this is the e-book for you. Our free short story this weekend is Fancy Farmer, a little bit of Julia Child with a dash of HAL 9000.
Now, I’m off to find more coffee and to continue playing with the new laptop. Have a great weekend!
I’m a little late but I have a good excuse. Really I do. My new laptop arrived this afternoon and I just had to play, er, set it up 😉 Anyway, it’s doing the update thing so I figured I’d better get over here to announce our Deal of the Day and our free short story.
Wedding Bell Blues by Ellie Ferguson is our deal of the day. Actually, it’s the deal of the weekend at $1.99. That’s $2.00 off the regular price.
Weddings always bring out the worst in people. Or at least that’s the way it seems to Jessica Jones as her younger sister’s wedding day approaches. It’s bad enough Jessie has to wear a bridesmaid dress that looks like it was designed by a color blind Harlequin. Then there’s the best man who is all hands and no manners. Now add in a murder and Jessie’s former lover — former because she caught him doing the horizontal tango on their kitchen table with her also-former best friend. It really is almost more than a girl should be expected to handle. . . .
Fancy Farmer is our free short story for the weekend. In Fancy Farmer, Pam Uphoff gives us a futuristic cooking show that is part Julia Child, part H.A.L. 9000 and all fun. Fancy Farmer is our robotic hostess with a penchant for paisley, programmed for perky and a desire to be able to taste the food she’s cooked.
