Read an Ebook Week

Filed under: Caesars Through the Fence — marshacanham @ 6:39 am

It’s officially Read an Ebook Week and an amazing number of authors are offering deals and freebies at Smashwords this entire week. I’m right in there like a dirty sock offering up three of my books.

First up is Swept Away, my Regency that isn’t really a Regency, though it was supposed to be a Regency and I faked the editor into thinking I was doing what she asked me to do by writing a Regency.  It has a naked hunk on the beach, a wild carriage chase through the streets, spies and intrigues, murder and mayhem, and a face to face with Napoleon Bonaparte. What’s not Regency about that?

Next up is one of my favorite books, Pale Moon Rider, written because I loved the poem The Highwayman. My literary homage to Zorro and The Scarlet Pimpernel, two movies I loved when I was growing up. I even used Tyrone Power’s first name for the hero!  Oddly enough, no one ever made that connection, or if they did, they never wrote to me to ask about it *s*. There is something about a man in a black cloak and mask riding across the moors under the moonlight to save his lady love….

Last but not least is my one and only short story, What the Heart Sees. Originally written for the Loopie anthology, Masters of Seduction, it let me revisit the greenwood of Medieval England. Castles and longbows, evil villains and brave knights, tossed in with a lady archer and a blind jeweler who throws a little magic into the mix. I never knew how hard it was to write a short story until I did this. I usually take 50 pages or so just to introduce the characters and get the plot underway. Here I had to introduce, develop, toss in conflicts and battles and magic and of course, lovvvvvvvve *s* all in under 50 pages. whew.

Happy reading.

  2. Hmm. It should be. I just checked and it looks okay on my end and at Smashwords. Unless you tried to get it before 12:00 Pacific time. That’s when it went into effect *s*

    • The time zone was the issue. I am MST; didn’t even think about that!
      Thanks a bunch!

  3. Hi Marsha! I’ve been slowly replacing your prints with ebooks (well, no one is getting my prints of your books, even though they are falling apart!) but this way I can keep re-reading a ebook without the pages falling out!

    I’m so elated your books are back out and too I did miss your first one, it was hard to find (or too expensive).

    Thanks dearly!!

    • Cathie…thank YOU for finding my ebooks and re-reading them *s*. And yes, I couldn’t believe some of the prices I saw on the older books. Can’t believe some of the prices on some books, period *s*.
