Amazon's famous Prime Day events are huge for so many reasons, and for bookworms, it's even better: books aren't high-ticket items to begin with, so when they're on sale, and our book-buying budgets go farther, we get to PAR-TAY!

Here are some of book bargains for Prime Days October 13 & 14 that you won't want to miss: 

Books 99-cents for Prime Day:

Drops of Gold, by Sarah M. Eden

My Dearest Enemy, by Jennifer Moore

Not a Word, by Stephanie Black

The Gem Thief, by Sian Ann Bessey

A Guarded Heart, by Heidi Kimball

Wager for a Wife, by Karen Tuft


If Your Like Audio Books, You'll Love These

Apple AirPods: only $114! 

That's seriously cheap for AirPods, and if you're like every person I know who owns a pair (including my teen, who saved up her own money to buy a more expensive pair), you'll get a ton of use out of them, more than justifying this super low price. 


Echo Buds

These are Amazon's version of AirPods. They include Alexa, so you can tell your ear buds to play specific things. Ask questions, add things to your shopping list and calendar, and more. And for Prime Day they're only $79. 

Audible Trial Membership: FREE! 

Includes 1 book of your choice. (I suggest The Girl in Gray!) Plus, members get to listen to Audible-only podcasts, newspapers, and more.

Kindle Readers on Sale

They start at $59 and can hold thousands of books! 

The Paperwhite is $79 for Prime Day.

And I have the Oasis, which is a DREAM of a device. It's dropped in price dramatically to $199.

If you get a Kindle reader for Prime Day, you'll get a $5 ebook credit to go with it! Depending on how you spend it, that five bucks could get a few books!

That's one of the semi-secret joys of ebooks: you can buy SO MANY MORE because they're cheaper than DTBs (dead-tree books/paper books). 


Other Cool Stuff

Swhatty Cell Phone Stand Universal Tablet Dock

This is a super cool stand made of sturdy aluminum alloy. Adjust the angle and height. Use with any tablet or phone. 

The black one is just $12. Two other colors are available for $17.

Ring Video Doorbell

My parents have one of these, and I love that; they can see who is at their door before answering. $69 for Prime Day. 

Echo Studio

The highest-quality of devices in the Amazon Echo family. This one has amazing 3D sound with high-fidelity speakers. $149 for Prime Day, down from $199.


Echo Dot

I love, love, love our Echo. If you're looking for something with the same functionality as the big ones, and the amazing sound of the tall Echo isn't your primary concern, you'll want the Echo Dot, only $18! (DUUUDE.)

Available Now: The Girl in Gray

A country fighting to stay free.
A woman with an impossible decision.

In November of 1939, Sini Toivola is sure of two things: she loves Marko Linna, and she has a comfortable life in Helsinki. But when the massive Soviet army invades her beloved homeland and Marko spurns her affections, her life is turned upside down. Needing a fresh start, Sini decides to join the female volunteer corps—the Lotta Sv√§rd—and is sent to serve near the front lines. Service at a field hospital proves a good distraction—until Sini discovers a Russian soldier lost behind their camp.

Duty requires her to turn him in, but her heart begs to keep him safe and help him escape. Torn between love for her country and love for her enemy, Sini must choose—but no matter what choice she makes, heart-wrenching consequences await them all.

Lots o' Links!

Not just links, either; tons of news!

Tailor Made goes live on Tuesday, September 3rd, but it's already available for pre-order.

Snag your copy for just $2.99, and it'll download automatically to your Kindle!

It's the first in what will be a series set in 1800s Finland. Long-time readers may recognize it as a story I wrote for the now-defunct Kindle Worlds program, but it's bigger and different and better than ever!


About the book: 

Two people. An impossible Task. A traitor in their midst.

Sofi’s mother desperately needs medicine, and Sofi will do anything to get it—including a one-month stay at the Brunberg mansion in Helsinki, the capitol. There she’ll spend her days at the Kangas Tailor Shop, knitting silk stockings and other items from sunup to sundown for the biggest wedding of the decade. If she can do it, Sofi will have the ability to get the medicine her mother needs, with money to spare.

But Sofi’s safe world of knitting needles and thread is turned upside down when she finds herself in the middle of political intrigue. Antti, tailor and owner of the shop, Sofi uncover a plot to sabotage the Brunberg daughter’s wedding and threaten to bring Russia’s fist onto the Grand Duchy, removing the Finns’ self-governance, and possibly lead the countries into war.

As Sofi and Antti work together to save their country, she can’t help falling in love with the unassuming and attractive head tailor, though she knows she can’t have him. Her country and her family need her, and when her job is done, she’ll go home to Porvoo, never to see him again.

As they race to stop the traitor, the battle in her heart intensifies, and she fears that the victor won’t be love.

Here's the purchase link one more time.


Log on to Facebook at noon Mountain Time on Wednesday, September 4th (that's the day after Tailor Made releases).

For an hour, I'll chat with readers, draw prize winners (including one participant who will win PayPal CASH), and more.

RSVP for the event here.




The Girl in Gray is my World War II novel.

It's women's fiction and set during the little-known Winter War, a relatively short but amazing conflict between the Soviet Union and Finland.

The Winter War had big effects on the war, and I had relatives who fought and died in it.

I worked on this book for years and years. It's truly a labor a love, and I can't wait for my readers to get their hands on it!

Stay tuned for the back cover copy, pre-order, and release date, all coming soon!


New Releases You Won't Want to Miss

The Warning, by James Patterson and my awesome friend Robison Wells

About the book: 

Two roads lead to Mount Hope. None leads out. There's no place to run in a community that's been takenand is being intentionally kept―off the grid.

A small southern town was evacuated after a freak power-plant accident. As the first anniversary of the mishap approaches, some residents are allowed to return past the national guard roadblocks.

Mount Hope natives Maggie and Jordan quickly discover that their hometown is not as it was before. Downed cellular networks fail to resume service. Animals savagely attack humans. And the damaged power plant, where Jordan's father is an engineer, is under military lock down.

As friends and family morph into terrifying strangers, the Maggie and Jordan increasingly turn to each other. Their determination to discover who―or what―has taken control of Mount Hope soon has them in the cross hairs of a presence more sinister than any they could have imagined.



The Marquess Meets His Match, by Julie Coulter Bellon

About the book: 

Lord Christian Wolverton―known as Wolf in a covert group operating during the war against Napoleon―has been called home from his military duties. For the moment, his family responsibilities require him to suspend his more clandestine activities. But information falls into his hands that a traitor will soon try to tip the scales back into French favor and Christian doesn't have much time to stop it from happening.

Going to the one person who can help him, the powerful Duke of Huntingdon, Christian comes face to face with Lady Alice. She’s a beautiful member of the ton with a very big secret―she’s also a trained agent and already on the case. Forced to partner with her to lure the traitor out of hiding, Christian wants to quickly close the case himself, before Lady Alice is more closely involved. But Lady Alice has ideas of her own and she’s going to prove her theories correct―with or without him.

Danger is closer than they think, however, and it’s a race against time to expose the traitor’s identity before British lives are endangered. Both Christian and Alice have strong opinions on who he is, but which one will be proven right?
