September is For Free Reads — At Least Over at @RoanePublishing #FreeReads #Anniversary #Freebies



I am happy to announce, albeit late, that Roane Publishing will be offering readers two free eBook downloads each week during the month of September as a way to celebrate their one year anniversary.

I don’t know about you, but I love Anniversaries where I get the presents…and for me, there is nothing better… or rather few things better, than free books.

Roane will be releasing new stories each Monday during the month of September, each written by a Roane Publishing author.

The first two releases — Any Other Way by Michelle Ziegler and Dragon Eye by Anna Simpson are already up on their website for download in all eBook formats, but here is the full release schedule:

In the Pages of a Good Book Anniversary Blog Hop #Giveaway #Celebration


So hey everyone. Good to be back among the living… for the most part.

As an author, I have had an opportunity to meet tons of new people — writers, readers and bloggers alike. I have formed friendships I know will last a lifetime. Most notably with the ladies in my critique group on Scribophile — The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pens, some of whom I am as close to as my own sisters. Love them, cheer for them, cry for them — they have shown me what friendship is about.

Another is the host of the blog we are celebrating today, In the Pages of a Good Book. Beckey has been amazingly supportive of my and my writing, so I was thrilled to have a chance to participate in her giveaway event.

And talk about giveaways… there are a ton of things happening, from a blog hop to a Facebook takeover event. Not to mention giveaways galore.

First off, let me give you the Giveaway Links:

Happy Anniversary

I just noticed today while surfing the net that April 19th marked the one year anniversary of this blog. One year since I started to take writing seriously enough to start submitting work and opening myself up to possible rejection.

In looking back, I have to say I have grown immeasurably as a writer over the past year, learned a ton, and reached a few milestones as well. I think I will offer some sort of contest to celebrate this auspicious occassion. I’ll need a bit to think on this, but will give you all some info in the next few days.

In the meantime, Happy Anniversary to The Machenwood Chronicles and Other Tales!
