This One’s a Keeper…

Continue the Aggie jforkeepskindlesmourney with book two in the Aggie’s Inheritance series, For Keeps.

Her first six months of “motherhood” included an ant infestation, a major move, house renovation, and lessons in how to be a mom to eight lively children. Now that the house is nearly complete, her children are headed back to school, and she has a few tantrums under her hymn-singing belt, Aggie is certain life will settle down.

Poor Aggie… William makes his intentions known, Luke and his mother are always there for her, and between a new kitten, a box full of puppies, and chicken pox, Aggie’s home begins to resemble the local zoo! Her children keep testing the waters, the unrealistic budgets she makes refuse to balance, and she learns that life with children means that nothing stays done and perfect for long. Add Geraldine and her histrionics to the mix and it’s no wonder she’s ready to run away from home. When a surprise letter arrives, everything could turn upside down.

Relief is in sight, but can she bring herself to jump to plan B? Has this just been a practice game, or is she playing for keeps? Will her household shrink drastically, or will it expand?

Ashley has dropped the price of For Keeps for a limited time (at least 24 hours) so here’s a chance to get the book at a great low price and the opportunity to win one of a couple of Amazon Gift Cards that I give away every week.  How do you win you ask?  I’ll tell you!

We have lots of options.  We like to try to make it easy for everyone to get at least two entries.  We use PromoSimple widgets as our giveaway manager.  Just enter your email address and name into the widget and that’s one entry!  Answer the question in the comments below, and there’s another entry!  Then, for those who like social media (and more entries into the giveaways) here are more entry options!

Blast From the Past!

sheeps wool on barbed wire fence

You know, as I was setting up this post, I glanced at the original publication date for this book and was truly amazed to see that it was March of 2010! SO much has happened since this book was first published. And yet, in so many ways it seems like it was just yesterday. Somehow it’s already been over four years. Wow! I want to say thank you to each of my readers that has been here with me through this journey. We’ve had our ups and downs, bumpy moments and smooth sailing. Yet so many of you have stuck it out and even helped continue to spread the word about this quirky author who likes to bite off twice as much as she can chew and loves giving books away. I appreciate each of you. Truly. Thank you.

Argosy Jct. Montana -
Pop. 13,223

Lane – Five years after her family broke ties with The Brethren, the cult-like church still has firm ties wrapped around her heart and soul. The more she rejects them, the Lord, and anyone who claims a relationship with Christ, the more she realizes how empty life can be.

Matt -  Fresh from the inner city, Matt arrives in Argosy Jct. ready to explore the Montana countryside. He’s prepared for anything but sheep, cults, and a rancher’s daughter with a chip on her shoulder.

Not until she saves Matt from assault by sheep does Lane begin to understand that Christianity is a relationship rather than a checklist to godliness. Before he met Lane, Matt never understood how damaging the body of Christ can be to its own.

Join them as they explore Montana, Rockland, and the possibility of a merge between two very different worlds.

Ashley has dropped the price of Argosy Junction for a limited time (at least 24 hours) so here’s a chance to get the book at a great low price and the opportunity to win one of a couple of Amazon Gift Cards that I give away every week.  How do you win you ask?  I’ll tell you!

Myner Monday: HearthLand Episode 5!

Well, I have to admit, I’m feeling the footsteps. Try as I might, with all the other books I’m working on, I can’t keep quite as far ahead on the HearthLand episodes as I’d like to. So I keep on singing to myself, “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming…” ;)

Despite many roadblocks, stalled plans, and a bumpy ride, Ralph’s dream is becoming a reality. As Ralph tries to choose a company to facilitate HearthLand’s planning and architectural needs, Harlan returns home, leaving his uncle uncertain if he’s gone for good.

Prospective investors discuss the opportunities that will be available, and an author gives Ralph much needed information in order to proceed.

It’s time to give away HearthLand: Episode 5, FREE on Kindle for a limited time.

Here’s a chance to get the book for free (which is most definitely my favorite part of writing! I LOVE releasing these episodes for free so everyone gets the chance to enjoy them) and the opportunity to win one of a couple of Amazon Gift Cards that I give away every week.  How do you win you ask?  I’ll tell you!

Justified Means ~ .99 For a Limited Time!

This seems like a fitting book to feature this month.  Ashley didn’t know when she planned it that I’d be working furiously on this book even as the sale went live.  So, if you haven’t had a chance to start them, book three will be available soon!

Erika Polojmsmwski, in grave danger–danger she has no idea exists,finds herself captive, shackled, bound, gagged. Her captors have the most unbelievable story, yet as the enemy manages, time after time, to get too close, she has to decide who or what to trust. Can she believe the man who daily holds her at gunpoint? Does she trust her gut? She is certain that she knows nothing that could possibly matter to anyone–has done nothing that should put her in danger. For Keith Auger, it’s just another assignment. Extract the client, protect the client, return the client to her life with minimal interruption. Except that this “client” isn’t so keen on being protected. His usual cheerful demeanor disappeared the night he helped her escape from her home–escape with the aid of duct tape, rope, and the dark of night. His faith seems incongruous with his job. Her feisty personality might just keep her alive–if he can’t. How long can they stay one step ahead of their pursuers? How long can he protect her when every move they make seems only half a step behind those who want Erika dead. Why can’t they get a break?

Ashley has dropped the price of Justified Means for a limited time (at least 24 hours) so here’s a chance to get it at a great low price and the opportunity to win one of a couple of Amazon Gift Cards that I give away every week.  How do you win you ask?  I’ll tell you!

Meet Alexa

mfmsm

Throughout the years that I’ve been writing, I’ve created a great number of characters, many of them women. All of them have meaning to me in some way or another, and I’ve come to realize that to some degree each of them holds a piece of my personality. I’d hazard a guess that those who know me best can pick out those similarities as they read my novels.

One of the connections I have with Alexa is, of course, the way she dresses. And by that, I don’t mean that I actually do dress like her. But more that I would like to dress eclectically, though perhaps not as flamboyantly, as her. At the encouragement of some friends of mine, I recently ordered a couple of dresses that leaned more towards Alexa’s style than I usually approach. I’m excited! I can’t wait to get them! Who knows, maybe they’ll help me bring out my “inner Alexa”… ;)

Olly, Olly Oxen… .99!

I have to tsmalronell you, yesterday was “one of those days” for me. I felt rather like Aggie must’ve felt more days than not in the beginning of Ready or Not. You know, that lovely feeling of wanting to pull out your own hair and/or the hair of someone else you know and love. ;) As I attempted to reign in the cloud of irritation that settled over me, I reached out to some friends, asking for their top five coping mechanisms for such feelings. I was thankfully pointed toward scripture and prayer. Now, as I get this promotion ready, I realize, truly, Aggie is wise for her years. If you’ve read Ready or Not, you know, anytime Aggie experiences extreme emotions, her immediate reaction is to begin singing a hymn. Her default is to turn her attention to her Savior via song. And, truly, what better way is there to get over one’s self than to turn your focus on Jesus?

On that note, since it’s been a day of it, lol, be aware that it may take a bit longer for the price to change over today, as Amazon is glitching again.

Myner Mondays: Episode 2

Well, last wHLep2smeek was a bit of a mess with the first episode release of HearthLand. I’mstill not entirely sure what happened there. And, in an effort to inspire a few more gray hairs, or perhaps thin what I have out, I discovered another issue with changing the price on Episode 2 for tonight. I *think* I got it all figured out in time and jumped through the hoops that needed jumping. Time will tell. If this gets published at its regular time (midnight), my calisthenics paid off.

(Oh, and as an aside, it was brought to my attention that the term “snafu” has a somewhat unseemly meaning that I was previously unaware of. Please forgive my ignorance if you’re one of the, hopefully, rare persons who knows what it typically stands for.)

It’s time to give away HearthLand: Episode 2, FREE on Kindle for a limited time.
