Discounts for Spring 2019

First of all, thanks to everyone who has bought the most recent book in my Victorian San Francisco mystery series, Scholarly Pursuits, and said such nice things about it in comments and reviews. This certainly motivates me to get right back to writing. I am currently doing research on women in the medical professions in San Francisco for the next mystery, while working on the sequel to the novella I co-wrote with my daughter,  The Stars are Red Tonight, which is set in the Paradisi Chronicles universe.

And the first two discounts I wanted to tell you about are on Between Mountain and Sea, the first book in my Caelesis series. For a limited time, the ebook edition, which is currently only found on Kindle, is on the Prime Reading list. What that means is that if you subscribe to Amazon Prime you can borrow Between Mountain and Sea for Free–all you have to do is be signed into your Amazon Prime account when you click to buy the book. 

Amazon Prime is different than Kindle Unlimited (which is a separate subscription service), and prior to the folks of KDP asking to include Between Mountain and Sea on the Prime Reading list, I had no idea that prime membership (which I use to get free shipping and stream movies) also included access to a rotating list of about 1000 ebooks, which you can borrow for free. To see the entire Prime Reading list, click HERE.

I hope that those of you who are fans of my mystery series but have been hesitant to give my science fiction work a try will use this opportunity to try this book for free. I have been very encouraged by how positively both readers who are familiar with my mysteries and readers who are new to my work have responded to this series–with 78% giving Between Mountain and Sea 5 stars. 

And, for those of you who prefer audiobooks, Between Mountain and Sea is not only available to buy in a whole lot of different stores, but in Barnes and Noble’s online store, they have discounted the audiobook edition 50%, so it is only $7.50. I don’t know how long this discount will last, but I also noticed they had the next two audiobooks in this series, Under Two Moons and Through Ddaera’s Touch, discounted 23% for now as well. 

And speaking of audiobooks. I am very excited to announce that I have had a new edition of Maids of Misfortune produced by Alexandra Haag, who has narrated all of my other Victorian San Francisco mystery books, as well as my Paradisi Chronicles trilogy. I am sorry to say that listeners didn’t respond well to the narrator for the original edition of Maids of Misfortune, which is why I switched to Alexandra. However, now that my original contract with that first narrator is over, I am very pleased that I have been able to get this new version produced by Alexandra. It is not available everywhere yet, but it is available on iTunes–for the discounted price of only $7.99 which is a wonderful deal. 

And finally, the boxed set of the first 4 books in the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series is available on Kobo at a 40% discount until March 25. All you have to do is put in the code 40MAR at check out. Here is a page listing all the boxed sets currently involved in this Kobo promotion. 

So, lots of opportunities to get some reading and listening materials at a discount as you look forward to sunnier weather after a very long winter.

  1. I am in the middle of Scholarly Pursuits, and loving it as I do all your books. You keep mentioning the Blind and Deaf Institute which I find fascinating. My great grandparents came to San Francisco in the 1880s,srttled in San Francisco, only to end up in Berkley after the 1906 earthquake. One of the items I found from their store was a desk top that was from the Blind and Deaf Institute. Seeing the desk and your book in such close proximity means your book comes to vivid life for me. Thank you again!

    1. Dear Louise,

      Thanks so much for writing and telling me about your great grandparents and the desk top! How cool. I would imagine there is a story behind how they got that desk. And about their decision to relocate to Berkeley. Glad you are enjoying the book.
