Every Friday is Celebrate the Small Things with Lexa Cain and L.G. Keltner.
The rules are blog about something good in your life. It can be something little or something big, but the goal is to find the positive in life and celebrate it. Then hop around the linky list on Lexa's blog and see what others are celebrating.
This week I am celebrating finishing a short story. Back when I was writing the Path of Angels series, an old writer friend challenged me to write something that had a sex scene in every chapter. I wrote a short story between PoA 1 and 2 about what drove Lake and Michael back to Michael's brothers. I set it aside and didn't think much of it. Recently, I went back to it and rewrote it as something more serious. It's only about 10K words, but I'm considering publishing it eventually.
That's all I have for the week. Monday and Tuesday were good days, but the rest of the week I dealt with some fatigue. Today my mom is visiting me, so I'll be busy with that. Next week, I'll get back to the grind.
A couple years ago, I did an event called New Year, New Reads. It was a 99cent book sale blog hop styled like Trick-or-Treat Reads. The idea was people would have gift cards to spend, so why not put our books on sale for 99cents and entice them to spend their cards on us.
But when the next new years rolled around I didn't have the energy for it. Thankfully, my friend Tui Snider offered to run it at Story Dam. This year, she's running it again over on her blog and I figured why not participate.
The book I'm offering is Zadekiel, book 2 in the Path of Angels series. (Book 1, Michael is perma-free, so if you haven't read that yet, you can snag it on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iTunes, and Smashwords.)
The path is lost.
With Michael gone, the mantle of leadership falls to Zadekiel. In this time of darkness, with tempers running short, Zade struggles to guide his brothers. Hope comes in the form of a green haired woman with a unique gift. She represents a way back to the path they lost when Michael disappeared.
Zephyr fills books with cryptic poetry, a powerful compulsion, which is more a curse than a blessing. With no control over her ability, she struggles to live a normal life. When she meets Zade, he insists her ability is a gift from God. Reluctantly, she agrees to join the cause–it’s hard to dispute a man with wings.
Now the path is found, but one question remains. Will it lead to further darkness?
After you've grabbed your goodies, head over to Tui's blog and see who else has a use for those gift cards you were given. ;)
Happy Halloween, y'all! Everyone is getting dressed up, watching scary movies, and binging on candy. It's a scary day for me and hubby, too. We both have doctor's appointments today. #EEK!
It's also the 5th Annual Trick-or-Treat Reads event. (It's a good thing last year I noted how many years I've done this because I could not remember...I also almost forgot to write this post. Thankfully Jemina Pett had tweeted about it and I was like, "Oh yeah!")
This year, I'm offering up my usual goodies. Influence of Love is free on Amazon, Smashwords, and Barnes & Noble. Michael is also free at Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and Kobo.
For something new I have yet to offer, you can grab Abducted Life at Smashwords for free in any format. Use code HL95A at checkout to get 100% off. (Valid until Nov 18th.)
Lastly, before you take off to the other participants, to celebrate Tempting Friendship and Mistakes of the Past's new covers, I put both on sale for 99cents.
Happy Halloween! May it be filled with good books.
