Hard to believe there are only two pages left in the 2016 calendar. They say time flies when you’re having fun but it seems to me that it goes by pretty quickly regardless. I officially began my writing career when my youngest child was an infant, I became a stay-at-home dad, and I needed something to do to keep me out of the rubber room. I now have two published novels, a football-themed cookbook that’s complete but I haven’t quite decided what to do with it, and a third novel, my most ambitious work to date, is well underway. I don’t have a timetable or even a title at this point but I know those things will come. Oh, and that infant responsible for getting this ball rolling is now a freshman in high school. Her older brother is away at college. Yeah, time flies and I’m suddenly feeling very old.
Thanksgiving is only a few short weeks away and that mean Santa will be doing his annual breaking and entering routine before we know it. Being the kind and generous soul that I am, I’ve decided to lighten his load a bit while at the same time giving you a wonderful gift idea for the booklover on your list and at a cheerfully low price to. From now through Christmas Eve, A Shot at Redemption, my debut suspense novel, will be available on all e-book platforms for just $1.79. That includes Kindle, Nook, iBooks, Smashwords, Kobo, Oyster, etc., etc. You don’t have to deal with the holiday crowds. You don’t have to wrap. You don’t even have to see the recipient which is sometimes a good thing. Just use the gift option at checkout, enter an email address and preferred delivery date, and you’re good to go. It doesn’t get any better than that… except it might because I’m considering lowering the price on Parlor City Paradise too. Stay tuned for more info on that. Hey, it’s the season of joy and I’m just trying to do my part. All I ask in return is that you share this post with anyone you think might be interested, and if you read and enjoyed either of my books, please post a review. It only takes a couple minutes and it makes a huge difference, especially to lowly indie authors like me.
I do have one other small request. If you have not already done so, I would greatly appreciate it if you would sign up for my newsletter. Being a blog subscriber is not the same thing. And actually, I’m pondering some changes to my website and the blog post may go away or at least become a lot less frequent. You may have noticed that I’ve sort of scaled back on that already. I’d like you to stay informed, though, and getting on my email list is the best way to do that. Simply visit michaelsova.com, enter your email address in the field on the right and click Subscribe. You have my personal pledge that I will not fill your inbox with junk. You’ll barely hear from me at all. However, when I do have news on an event, a sale or a new book release, I want to be able to get the word out. Take a second to subscribe and please ask others to do the same. Thank you kindly.
And on that note, it’s time for me to get back to work. I need to finish the new manuscript so I can offer another great book deal at about this time next year. Let the Christmas shopping begin!
