Holiday shopping tip: remember the indies.

While you are thinking of holiday shopping, remember your independent bookstores. Their sales are down 40% although people are buying books in record numbers (mostly through Amazon). This operation, Bookshop. org, is trying to help. The profits go to the bookstore. Try them. Of course, my books are there, too, but go ahead and search for others. Happy shopping!

FALL SPECIAL ON NOVELS!

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).

Quick links: Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords

You may support your local indie bookstore by ordering through bookshop.org, which is also discounted.

Enjoy! 

Questions? Ask me anything!

MER_6981Many of you have come to this site from The Freewheeling Freelancer, which is now almost seven years old. The website of my little company, Scriptor Services LLC went live 27 years ago. In that time, I have embraced three careers, rolled on two continents, published non-fiction and fiction, and learned much about the world. 

Are you curious?

Ask me anything. Leave a reply below, use the contact form, or email me.

I’ll answer, even if it’s to say “I don’t know.”

If your question inspires a whole post, I’ll give you credit, using your first name. Please tell me if you want to remain anonymous.

Thanks to Christian for this Q&A idea, and I look forward to your questions.

Smooth roads and tailwinds,
