Freebie Friday — Travel Accessories for the Literate Traveler

A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned a new group of authors I’d joined up with–The Passport Ready Writers-Readers Group–a group of authors who write mysteries that are set in far flung locales and readers who enjoyed these kinds of mysteries. Well, yesterday was the official launch date for the Facebook group, and what’s more fun than starting things off with a contest? Right?

I thought so too.

So, for that reason, I’ve posted a fun contest and prize, with the entry requirements easily found at the top of the group page. The post is pinned at

All you have to do to enter is be a member of the Facebook group and tell an item you always take along when you travel.

And what is the potential prize, you ask? How about a brand new Bodies of Art Mystery canvas tote to help carry around all that stuff we actually take along whenever we go anywhere. Yeah, I know you do it too. Something big and roomy that looks like this–

If you’re interested, get over and enter. The winner’s name will be drawn tomorrow afternoon–June 3rd–when my neighbor’s grandkid comes by my house to pick a name from the ones collected by that point in the tote. Hurry and Good Luck!

Happy Travels 🙂

Freebie Friday and Update on Huge Contest Monday!

There is always something fighting for my dollars–especially as the weather warms up, the schools let the students loose, and we’re all traveling more. So, I love it when I can report on a way to save or win merchandise–especially when it relates to reading. Here are a couple of goodies!

Until June 30th, Amazon is offering a $3 discount on an e-title. Just click this link and you’ll go to a landing page that says your Summer discount offer has been applied–then Amazon 3-dollar-off credityou only have to shop for the Kindle copy you want, and the title will head for your ereader, and you’ll keep an the extra $3 in your wallet. Easy peasy. And my publisher would ask me to remind you here that this particular discount would cover the entire price of a copy of either Counterfeit Conspiracies or Marked Masters. Not that I’m trying to suggest how to spend your money or anything 🙂

If you look at your receipt at the time of purchase, it will show the full price of whatever Kindle book you choose, however it will include a boxed note that says:

Your order is being processed. The total, including promotions and Gift Certificates, will be available when it is complete.

And when I received the email copy of my invoice the $3 credit had been subtracted from the total (it took several hours before the credit was processed and I received an the invoice confirming the lowered price after the discount, so don’t panic if you don’t get it right away–my credit card was not charged based on the invoice at order and was only charged the discounted amount). The offers it runs until June 30th–but who can wait to buy a new ebook, right? This is free book money. Am I right? And I want to thank Jeanie Jackson for posting about this and giving me the scoop so I could share it with y’all!

Next, on Monday, June 13th Henery Press is celebrating it’s 100th published book by hosting an AtW Prize package from HPFB Blog Hop with 100 authors (Yes, I’m in that group). We’ll all be giving out prizes at our own stops, but Henery Press is Giving a Very Grand Prize of airline miles, a roomy Coach tote, designer sunglasses, and a Kindle Fire–all going to one very lucky recipient. All the entry details will be posted on early Monday morning and go on all day.

And this is just one prize. Remember, there will be 100 other authors who will all be giving stuff away on their pages, too! To enter, join the blog on Monday. I’ll have a post pinned to the top of my FB Author Page, click here to reach my Author page. If you’ve already liked my author page, you should get a notification by FB when I post in the early morning hours on Monday–but if you haven’t yet liked the page, feel free to do so now and get the news as soon as I post.
