FREE books

As a part of the Orangeberry Summer Splash book tour. #OBSummer #Books

I am having some of my books for free.

Leaving the Comfort Cafe will be free Aug 10-12 and my latest book, Ten Thousand New Year's Eves, the RE-Edited version (it had some format issues and someone spotted some typos that somehow got through--- I sent it out to be professionally re- edited---) will be free every Saturday in August.

Check out some of the way cook writers on the Orangeberry Book Tour.

Book as a haiku?

As a part of this Orangeberry Summer Splash virtual book tour (and a chance to win a free Kindle, btw---if you are on Twitter, hash tags are #OBSummer #Books) one of the participating authors had the great idea of summarizing one of our books in a haiku (three-line Japanese poetry form of 5-7-5 syllables.)

 Brilliant idea---I decided to give it a try for my novel I'm promoting, "Ten Thousand New Year's Eves."

 The world explodes with
 color in strange places, I
 look up; no one sees 

 It's much harder than it looks, and I'm still not thrilled with my version. There are a lot of other great haikus at his site:
