There are two special events close to the heroes of my novels.
Joe Lockhart is a translator, and 30 September is National Translation Day, a celebration promoted by UNESCO.
Emily and Hilda — and her friends and family — ride bicycles, and several types of bicycles appear in the book. The League of American Bicyclists celebrate the National Bicycle Challenge throughout the month of September.
In honor of these events, Lockhart and Emily & Hilda will be on sale for a full month. Pricing varies by retailer, with Smashwords offering the best deal on eBooks (USD 1,25 – Code LJ88L)) and Amazon on the print versions (price varies by location).
You may support your local indie bookstore by ordering through bookshop.org, which is also discounted.

Teenage bicycle phenom Emily Hampstead and retired Army nurse Hilda Paisley meet one night on a deserted road in Kansas. Hilda is crossing the USA on her bicycle; Emily is training for a major race. They part ways, not suspecting how their lives will be entwined in danger and intrigue…
