what's doing?

Summer is fast approaching, and if you're looking for titles to add to your summer vacation reading list, consider using Goodreads or Kindle's Lending Library as resources to find ideas.  

Goodreads organizes books in a variety of ways (genre, popular lists, and giveaways are a few) and Kindle's Lending Library offers free eBook downloads when you sign up with Amazon Prime.  You can also visit your local, independent bookstore (find yours here) or the library to strike up a conversation with a clerk or librarian, who are often walking card catalogues with great suggestions.

If you're looking for some good ecotopian YA, wildflowers will be available free on Kindle on May 18 and 19 in honor of all our 2013 graduates.  Congratulations Grads and best wishes as you move onward in your journey.  A special congrats to my favorite grad, A!

were you a winner in the Earth Day Goodreads giveaway?

All packages shipped a week back, including those that went out of the country.  Please allow more time for customs if you're outside the U.S.
Thanks to all for your interest, and 
happy fReading!

upcoming for summer?

Posts for the Writes blog will continue into the summer, though in vacation style.  At some point in the near future, I'll do a post on marketing Indie books, sharing my experiences to date.  My main focus for the summer, though, will be to finish two new novels currently in revision stage.  One of these novels is titled Roll, and is due for Indie release in late Fall of this year.  The other novel will be submitted in the traditional process.  

As for the fRead Project, giveaways and philanthropy efforts are always ongoing, and I'll share the latest here.  In the fall, the fRead Project will be looking to work with book clubs who would like to receive wildflowers as a free read and then be profiled on the blog. If you belong to a book club with three to ten members aged thirteen or older (or know an interested group), please feel free to contact me anytime this summer to chat about this opportunity.
