Want something to read over the holidays?

From now until 12th January, 2019, two of my eBooks are on sale at Smashwords. If you know someone who is looking for something to read over the holiday period, let them know or gift them one of my eBooks.

Rider, Book One in the Tracker Series, a fantasy novel, normally US$4.99 is on sale for US$0.99 at Smashwords.  Use the code AM92R at checkout to get the sale price.

Never admit to seeing ichur, the silvery residue of magic spells. Not if you want to stay under the radar of the Councillors of Convane.

Swift, a purebred tracker horse who can smell the smallest trace of ichur, can also remove the magic energy from any human or talisman.

Dallas, rider of Swift, knows how to create a spell without leaving residue, even if he is not a trained mage.

Neither Dallas or Swift admit to seeing and using the magic energy. If they did, Dallas would have his ability to see ichur removed, and Swift would be given to an approved mage by order of the council.

A new fantasy series including mages, dragons, tracker horses and more. On sale for US$0.99 until 12th January, 2019.

 

The Case of the Crop Duster Dog, a cosy mystery adventure, normally US$2.99 is on sale for US$0.99 at Smashwords. Use the code QS79W at checkout to get the sale price.

Working dogs are more than pets!

Mercy Connor, ex-Air Force cadet pilot, lives a quiet life on her cattle property west of Cunnamulla in Queensland, Australia, and takes the odd crop dusting job.

Returning from Brisbane, she picks up journalist Kenyon Smith, a stranded motorist on his way to her property. When she drives through the front gate she sees her dog Blue dead beside the track. Next moment her windscreen shatters. With Ken’s help, she deals with the attackers before she learns of her brother’s death. Suspecting the attack on her is related to her brother’s death, Mercy is determined to solve the mystery of who killed her dog and brother.

Buy The Case of the Crop Duster Dog and follow Mercy’s hunt for clues to solve this cosy mystery. On sale for US$0.99 until 12th January, 2019.
