Treat yourself to a Valentine beach read for 99 cents

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, my beach read, Dune Girl, is on sale for 99 cents from 8 a.m. PST (California time) Friday, Feb. 14, 2020 until 11 p.m. PST Sunday, Feb. 16, 2020.

Available as an e-book on Amazon, Dune Girl is a contemporary, clean-read romance set in the beautiful Indiana Dunes, which are just outside Chicago.

Here’s a quick look: If Michael Alton’s hair is full of wood chips from a wild furniture-carving session, who cares? It’s not like he’s a CEO anymore. It’s not like his wife is still alive to notice. Life is simple. He’s got his art, his family, some great friends and a shield around his heart that is nearly as big as his dog. And, that’s just fine until the day TV journalist Maggie Brady explodes into his beach-side workshop wearing a wedding dress intended for another man and trailing a change of circumstances sure to rip apart her big-city, big-money world in a single day.

  1. Are any of your books available in paperback?
    I don’t have a Kindle. Although I was looking at them the other day. One guy tried to convince me to buy one for £120…and across the road they had them for £70.

    1. Nothing on paper to date. Books are still a sideline to my journalistic writing and I need to keep the costs down.

      Interestingly, you don’t need a Kindle to read Amazon e-books now. When you’re making a purchase, there’s a point when you can get an app that allows you to access the book on laptops, a smart phone or even through the cloud. Several readers use the latter and read wherever and whenever they have a chance. Also, my newest book, “Suspended Aggravation,” is releasing free through weelunk.com, a website. That can be read on anything.

      Thanks for reading, Caramel! Blessings on your weekend!

      1. That’s very interesting to know. I might try to buy a Kindle edition in the hopes I can download the app onto my laptop! I am such a technophobe! It is a little embarrassing at times how hopeless I am.

      2. Hello Nora, I have a hard time reading books (or any long articles of any kind) on my tablet. After a while my eyes, my brain, scream “Stop!”. I would love to buy a paperback copy of your book(s) if possible. My next best option would be downloading them on my Kindle, which doesn’t affect my eyesight like a regular screen does. Your comment seems to say I could do that for “Suspended Aggravation”. I must look into it.

      3. Alas, all my books are electronic to keep costs down at this point. The two books sold on Amazon (“Dune Girl” and the non-fiction “Making a Grand Exit” book about biblical answers to our fear of dying) can be downloaded onto Kindles, tablets, phones etc. or into the cloud to be accessed by various devices.

        “Suspended Aggravation” is a whole different animal, however. It is a weekly serial release — with three chapters out and 40 or so to go — through a web magazine. This one can be read — at no charge — on any device (including Kindle) that has internet access.

        Bonne chance and thanks for reading!! 🙂

  2. Thank you Nora! My copy of Dune Girl just finished downloading. I save my new fiction reads to devour at the beach or during snowstorms. Hoping our region will soon see a break in the spring like weather and have a good deep snow so my kids can enjoy their new sleds and I can enjoy this story over a mug full of hot chocolate.

    1. 🙂 Well: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow then!

      Hope you have more luck than we have. It has been a very gray and rainy winter here. I was out pacing the garden off this afternoon trying to figure out how many new plants I can fit in after the disaster that struck last fall with a water main break. Kind of starting over.
