Women and Words


OH, HO HO HO! You made it to the halfway point! AND HERE YOU THOUGHT WE WERE GOING TO FIZZLE OUT! NOOOOO, friends. That’s not how this Hootenanny thingie works. WE ARE ONLY JUST BEGINNING! The elves have yet to hit their stride, and the reindeer are inviting more of their friends over and this thing is turning into a big-ass block party with the neighbors joining in and omg I’m pretty sure this eggnog has something more than just eggnog in it…

Tucker’s been a bit busy, y’all…

Everybody’s now doing sled races down the middle of the street, which thankfully gets the elves off the roof (for now), though I’m pretty sure they’re going to now start doing ski jumps off it or maybe they’re working on a half-pipe (elf snowboards are super cute, y’all). The reindeer are in a snowball fight with some of the neighbor kids…

Third Party Sellers

I am all for third-party sellers.  These are companies or people who buy your books to resell them themselves.  YAY!  Right?

The only problem I have run into with third-party sellers is that sometimes the books are inflated in price, as though they are a collector’s item.

My books are usually priced around $7.99 for an e-book (and believe me, I do believe you get value for your money worth with a 100-150K book) and around $14.95 for a paperback.  It’s usually the paperbacks that they hyper-inflate.  I found one of my books priced out at over $300.  While I appreciate the idea that it’s worth that, it would have to be in gold for them to get that price.   It does not hurt the retailer whose site it is put up on as they still get their cut (ie: Amazon):Amazon-Vendor-Central-vs-Seller-Central

All of my books, novellas, and shorts are still available, have been updated, and are priced reasonably according to their lengths.  ENJOY!

A friends book

As you know, I love historical fiction so, check out my friend’s newest book in her series:

Heaven is to Your Left

Heaven is to Your Left by VandaVanda released the 4th Book in her ‘Juliana’ series! If you’ve been following Juliana’s story, you’ll want to pick this up.

How far would you go to save the person you loved?

It’s 1956. Alice (Al) and Juliana arrive home from a successful run at Le Lido in Paris, only to be greeted by Dan Schuyler who has threatened to reveal to the world the nature of their “immoral” relationship. Under this threat, Schuyler has gotten Juliana to sign a contract with him to be in a Broadway play. Now, the control and manipulation begins.

Al seeks a way to free Juliana from this man’s clutches. She turns to Max, accomplished businessman, owner of two night clubs, to help her. There must be something he can do; he has friends who are gangsters. Still, Max does nothing. Or does he?

Al knows she has to act. She knows gangsters too.

Princess of Dorsa by Eliza Andrews

Princess of Dorsa by Eliza Andrews

The fate of an empire lies in the hands of one untested princess.

Rebellious Princess Natasia has always known that her fate is to marry a man her father can shape into his heir. But everything changes after a would-be assassin nearly takes Tasia’s life. Someone with means and connections is obviously trying to destabilize the Empire, but who? No noble family is above suspicion, so the Emperor takes the extraordinary step of naming his daughter his true heir.

Tasia suddenly finds herself saddled with learning to rule an entire Empire. But there are enemies on every side, threatening to disrupt the Empire’s fragile peace — there’s the long-standing and deeply unpopular war in the East, disagreements amongst her father’s closest advisors, angry lords threatening their defiance, and rumors of a faraway kingdom trying to sow discord.
