Writers write to explore the world. Most of the time, those stories include love. All sorts of love.

We want to wish our readers a happy Valentine’s Day. Whether the love of your life is romantic or not, treasure it while you can.

Takin’ a Break From Love

I first published this in October of 2011. Wow, how time does fly. And things do change.

The relentless romance of Valentine’s Day has me a little weary today so I thought I’d bring back this wonderful photograph.

I call her Joy. I call the camel Fred.

matchless joy

Look at those precious little fingers!!

Happy National Read in a Bathtub Day

We have your CLEAN reads.

Read in a Bathtub 1Yes, friends, that’s a thing. February 9th is National Read in a Bathtub Day. Isn’t that a perfect day for a clean read? Get it? Clean read?

In honor of this auspicious occasion, and because we’re just nice like that, Laura Hile and I have surprises for you. Such deals!

Read in a Bathtub Laura

Laura is offering Marrying Well for Fun and Profit, her hilarious tome of Sir Walter Elliot’s relationship advice for the Upwardly Mobile Miss, for FREE. Yes, I just said that! You can have Sir Walter for nothing! (Just don’t tell Sir Walter. Let him think he’s popular and people love him because he’s wonderful. He wouldn’t like being FREE.)

Read in a Bathtub

I, too, have an humble gesture of good will in honor of the day. Understanding Elizabeth is on sale for 99 cents. Fabulous! Simply fabulous!

So soak your tired bones in some bubble bath and enjoy a couple of good books.  In fact, you can find our books, along with more than fifty other  CLEAN READS here. All books are priced at 99 cents or are FREE!

Give a Lady a Break

 

I prefer showers, but evidently today is Read-in-the-Bathtub Day. (Sheesh) In honor of the day, Laura Hile is offering her book, Marrying Well for Fun and Profit for FREE. This book is all the wit and wisdom of Sir Walter Elliot collated one handy reference guide. If you’ve ever hesitated when confronted with a challenging social, ethical, or moral dilemma, let Sir Walter help you out!

 

Now, you can download this book for free today–links in the post and graphic–but I would adjure you to wait until Sunday when it goes back up to the budget blistering price of $.99. Why would I encourage you to spend when you can save? Because, I’m a nag. I am also passionate that a writer’s time is worth something. Even the paltry amount that a 99 cent books brings in.

I’m betting that in the last week you have blown a buck on something caffeinated, fizzy, sugary  or savory. You’ve lost more pocket change than that recently.

The point is, laughter is a great medicine and you can get this without having that walloping co-pay to worry over.

Pry open your coin purse, let the moths fly free, and spend some money so Laura Hile, can make a living and keep writing YOU great stories.

Prezzies on the BIG Day

Next Wednesday is Valentine’s Day and I’m sure, like me, you’re being inundated with ads for gifts to give your beloved.

If you believe the day is being prostituted by the flower and card cabal, I’m sure you do your best to ignore it all. I think it’s funny that we’ve taken a day dedicated to a saint, who died a gruesome death, and made it over as a day for lovers.

We won’t even talk about the massacre that took place in Chicago in 1929.

Leading up to the big day I thought it would be interesting to take a quiz.

You can view the poll results by clicking on the link right above.

And what do I want? I’m big on kitchen gadgets and lunch at my favorite Mexican restaurant, Lupe’s Escape.
