Big Disaster Book Sale!

NOTE: this sale is now over - but Smashwords itself is offering a summer/winter sale (since it's winter in the southern hemisphere) for all of July. My books are discounted 50 percent for this time.

Amazon is down. This appears to be unscheduled, and they have some scheduled outages coming in the next day or two, too. This is hurting everybody's book sales, of course. So I'm going to offer a sale at Smashwords.

Here are coupon codes, which will expire on July 1, for all three of my books. Copy them, and you will have a space to enter them at checkout to get the sale price.

HAVE GUN, WILL PLAY funny mystery western

Description: Mick and Casey McKee aren't exactly your average gunslingers. He's young and inexperienced, and has much too sunny a disposition for a gunman. She's younger, meaner, less experienced, but a much better shot. They got married the day they met and still getting to know each other.

When they get a job protecting the daughter of a stagecoach king--and her grand collection of toys--it seems like an opportunity to go someplace new. But after the wrong kidnapping, a murder, another wrong kidnapping, a couple of jewel heists and a few knocks to the head, Mick and Casey are left holding the bag of toys. Mick, however, is not as dumb as he seems, and as for Casey...nobody steals her gun and gets away with it.

WIFE OF FREEDOM, women's fiction, romantic adventure

Description: The fictional world of New Acton is on the verge of rebellion, and so is Mary Alwyn, the unfaithful wife of a rebel. But when she betrays her lover for the revolution, her husband holds her up as a hero, labeling her The Whore of Freedom both in public and in print. This becomes Mary's scarlet letter. If she's going to live down the first part of that name, she'll have to live up to the second. She becomes a spy, as bold as her reputation. But she'll never be free until she returns to face her past. (Note: the subject matter of this novel is mature, and while the style is not explicit, it does contain some intense scenes and material not suited for children.)


Book Description: In the tiny nation of Lifbau in 1863, girls are not allowed to have adventures. But even at fourteen, Anna is still physically immature enough to pass for a boy. She realizes that now may be her one and only chance to grab an adventure, so she runs away from home. After she nearly thwarts a kidnapping, she is offered a job in the royal stables. There she has the time of her life, playing practical jokes and watching the political intrigues both in the stables and the palace.

But Anna also finds herself caught between an admirable but boring hero, and a villain who, though dead wrong, is a lot more fun. With only one chance at adventure, Anna has to find the right path between the two.
