A Free Treat For Yourself Or Somebody Else

I meant to post about this earlier this afternoon, but then I got very busy making a big pot of black beans and folding clothes while I watched The Amazing Spider Man.

That last thing? I know. It’s like I don’t even recognize myself anymore.

On top of that, I didn’t realize that there is a giant lizard in this particular Spider Man installment, so as a person who has a borderline phobia where scaly textures are concerned, I have been challenged to the very core of my being. I may require therapy.

But that’s not what I wanted to tell you. Because I have news that is much better than anything I could ever share with you you about giant lizards.

The Kindle edition of Melanie’s book is ZERO DOLLARS today on Amazon.


I don’t have any idea how long it will be free, so if I were you I’d GIDDY UP and download a copy.

And if you’re thinking, “Oh, I won’t be able to download it – I don’t have one of those fancy Kindle thingies,” don’t forget that Amazon has free Kindle apps that you can install on just about any device: iPhone, iPad, Macbook, PC, Android, a box of KFC – the possibilities are endless.

Hope y’all have had a great weekend!

p.s. I just found out that the Sparkly Green Earrings ebook is also free at BN.com today – so if you have a Nook, you’re in business. (Thanks, Mary, for letting me know!)

    Thanks for sharing!! What a cool tip =)

  6. Thanks for sharing… And you weren’t the only one watching strange movies tonight. I watched Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer. I NEVER watch scary movies. This one was so good I couldn’t help myself. Now I am afraid to go to bed, though. Think I need to grab me a sterling silver fork to protect myself! (must see movie to understand that last comment.) Anyways, goodnight and welcome to the new week. Amy

  15. Amber says:

    Thank you so much for the heads-up! Of course I’ve been wanting to read it but have been too busy procrastinating. But this is perfect because I’m gonna need something to distract me tomorrow morning while my 2 year old baby girl has a “minor procedure.” Like my brain even registers the word minor when there’s general anesthesia involved. So yes, a distraction will be most welcome. Thank you!

  16. Thank you for letting me know!! :)
