Hot 99-Cent Summer Book Deals!
I might have missed doing my June check-in, but I don’t want to miss July! I’ve got two big book deals going on, thanks to Thomas & Mercer, and here they are:
For the rest of the month you can buy Walk Into Silence for 99 cents in the US, 99p in the UK, and $1.49 in Australia. Walk A Crooked Line is also bargain-priced for July at 99 cents in the US, 99p in the UK, and $1.49 in Australia.
So, if you haven’t read both and need something murderously juicy to add to your summer reading list, click on BUY now, while the price is smokin’ hot! And, please, spread the word to all your mystery-loving pals!
Whew! Okay, now that I’ve got that out of the way, I can share that June was super busy, filled with half-day summer camp (so, a wee bit of writing done), lots of swim/play dates, and intensive planning for Emily’s birthday! Yes, I went overboard as usual and threw two birthday parties to celebrate my baby girl turning 7. Because one party isn’t enough when you’re a princess (or a mermaid)!
Second grade starts in less than a month (yes, for real). So, we’re doing all we can to wring every fun moment out of the summer. I hope y’all are having a lovely and not-too-hot summer as well.
I’m already thinking ahead to August and how I’m not going to volunteer for anything and everything this school-year. On my honor, I promise to pare back, so I can write more. It was sure nice taking time off from work, but I am chomping at the bit to get more of this new book written (it is tentatively titled Wasps). And, hopefully, I’ll get the Sweatpants Book Club rolling as well.
Being a mom is an incredible experience. I thank you all for being so patient while I do this motherhood thing to its fullest. I figure I’ll get faster at writing again the older Emily gets. So, I am soaking up these younger years now before she doesn’t need me as much anymore (waaaa!).
Happy July, Happy Summer, and Happy Reading!
