April Showers

April showers...

I have to apologize that the Loan Soul boxset has been delayed a month. The reason is the bonus story was supposed to be a short little epilogue--and instead spun out into its own full novella. So, I've had to give myself a bit more time to write it all and then clean it up ready for you #LoanSoul fans and those new to the series too!

...brings May flowers.

But the boxset, with all four Loan Soul books, including the award-winning first book and the brand-new, exclusive novella, No Free Souls, will be releasing in KU in May! You can preorder now.

And in the meantime, I've got an EPIC teaser trailer to show you for the Loan Soul series! And a lot of book giveaways, deals, and fun this month, especially for EARTH DAY on April 22.

ICYMI, I've bumped the Loan Soul boxset release to May to give me time to wrap up (and clean up) the bonus content, which has turned out to be a full story from Kida and the rest of the Devil's Deals employees rather than just a short epilogue. The novella, No Free Souls, is dark, haunting, nostalgic, second-chance rewarding, tense, brave, relationship-building, and a little bit quirky and snappy.

Thanks for your patience!

In the meantime, check out this trailer, catch up on the sneak peek at No Free Souls from last month's blog and grab book 1 for 0.99 on 4/20-24 to see if you want to preorder the boxset to save on books 2, 3, 4, and to get the bonus novella!

Earth Day Celebrations

If you don't know, I'm a geologist originally--did my Ph.D. in volcano burps. Yup. So, I'm very excited to celebrate EARTH DAY (April 22) by promoting ebooks (which save paper and trees to keep The Lorax and everyone else on the planet happy).

April 20-24, 2023, be sure to turn off extra power, try to drive less, and maybe plant something! And then...

Or grab all the above are always available in Kindle Unlimited.

And join my Earth Day takeover in my talented friend, C.L. Monaghan's reader group on Facebook, for games, giveaways, and tree-hugging fun on Saturday April 22 (or catch up on April 23)! :)
