Hi there

 So, I'm really lousy at keeping up my blog. Heavens, I sometimes don't do so hot with my monthly newsletter, but here I am trying to be better. So right now I'm writing this very short blog post. This year has been a bit crazy with the whole pandemic and all the crazy stuff that happened last year. I'm hoping that this year will be much more improved. I'm also hoping to improve myself. Make better choices, serve more, and write better.

I suppose in life there is always room for improvement. So let's move forward in this new year and make some good improvements!!!

For more details about what is happening in the life of this crazy author, feel free to join my monthly newsletter. I send out a monthly email with links to free or Kindle Unlimited books that I have enjoyed reading and recommend to my readers. If you join you also get a free copy of my short story Without Saying a Word. And I also send out updates, freebies, and new release information. Check it out.

On the twelfth day of Christmas an author gave to me...

Merry Christmas!!! I hope you got these great books these past twelve days. I know I'll be reading some more. Today is the last day of the giveaway and I'm excited to offer:

To escape capture by Imperial soldiers, 16-year-old Eridale Storm leaves the only home she’s ever known and drags her younger sister into the wilds of Mericon—the Empire that formed when America collapsed. Hoping to find safety with their mother who disappeared when Eridale was three, the girls follow clues that lead them across the country, but the empire hounds their every step.

The journey draws Eridale deeper into the conflict between the Empire and the rebel Freedom Fighters, producing questions about Eridale’s heritage, questions no one wants to answer.

Caught between the threads of deception, rebellion, and betrayal, Eridale struggles to find out who she is. The answers she finds could lead the country back to freedom or shackle them under the imperial throne forever.

Storm Child is book 1 of a four-book series. Book 2 Imperial Storm is available on Kindle Unlimited. Click here to find out more.

A Thrill of Hope by Marie Higgins

Holly Kidman is determined to be the best movie-producer California has ever seen…until her mother’s broken leg ruins Holly’s plans and she must return home for the holidays. During her stay in her home town of Timberland, Montana, fate throws her with a man she’d rather not be around. And yet, once she can get past old grudges, she realizes the charming man and his large ranch inspire her more than she thought possible. Dare she hope for her dream-come-true?

Rafe Montgomery is pleasantly surprised when Holly suddenly returns to town. Still haunted by the one, less than eloquent, kiss they’d shared years ago, he’s disappointed by the haughty attitude she’s come back with. His hope is to change the stubborn and unforgiving woman he’s slowly having feelings for and to show her what Christmas is all about.

Namesake by Kate Stradling

“Who needs magic in an age of electricity? I can flip the switch on the wall with the best of them.”
Anjeni Sigourna bears the name of a legendary goddess, but her resemblance to that honored figure ends there. Eighteen and jaded, she has cultivated sarcasm instead of the elusive magic everyone expects her to possess. Such mystic power lacks purpose in her modern world.
But when an adverse encounter with the Eternity Gate lands her in an alien realm, magic marks the boundary between life and certain death. Anjeni alone holds the keys to saving an ancient people from a savage enemy. Her bitterness notwithstanding, she must now create a legend instead of living in its shadow.

Kate Stradling is a structure junkie who adores the English language. Her novels flit through the fantasy spectrum, from dystopia lite to fairy tales to time-travel adventures. She blogs about literary tropes and word-smithing at and makes her home in sunny Mesa, Arizona.
