A Little Salty… Is Free!

I love free stuff. I especially love free books (and also free coffee). So when my publisher, Tyndale, told me that they were going to offer my first book, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet, as a FREE eBook this week, I thought that was just about the most fun thing ever.


Because it’s FREE. Free on Kindle, free on Nook, free on ChristianBook.com – FREE.

And now I’m sitting here laughing at myself because I kind of want to download it and I wrote the thing. But the allure of free is strong, my friends.

Anyway, I won’t waste your time with all my thoughts about free things, but I will pass along some links. The eBook will be free until Saturday, January 31st at midnight (I have no idea what time zone will apply).

Free eBook of A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet at Amazon (for Kindle)

Free eBook of A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet at Barnes & Noble (for Nook)

Free eBook of A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet at ChristianBook.com

And if you don’t have an eReader, remember that both Kindle and Nook have apps you can download to your computer or phone or the tablet of your choosing.

I love that Tyndale is doing this the week after Home is Where My People Are released, mainly because it feels like the perfect way to say THANK YOU for making this past week so much fun. I certainly didn’t expect for the new book to come out three weeks early, but now I’m so glad that it did (it cut three weeks off of my pre-release nerves / sleeplessness, and that is a gift that will keep on giving).

Hope you or someone you love will enjoy the free book – and Happy Sunday, y’all!

  1. You should totally download it!!!

  2. Thank you

  3. I actually had the book at my house and my cousin borrowed it… looks like I’m downloading it today:)

  4. I have a hard copy, but was happy to get this for my kindle as well. I finished Home is Where My People Are within two days of it getting here. It was not what I expected, but exactly what I needed.

  5. This just thrills me! Now I can secretly download it onto my husband’s Kindle and when we’re at the beach, I can steal it and reread one of my favorites. And, I love your attitude of thankfulness. It’s a joy.

  6. Thanks so much… I am thrilled to reread it on my Kindle!!

  7. Thanks for letting us know about the free download! I already have your book in print, but now I can loan it out and still have it to read for myself on kindle!

  8. Thank You! I can’t wait to get started reading

    I am in the middle of reading Home is Where My People Are…..and I have to say I think we might be soul sisters. Just saying. I believe we might be around the same age. (46) We went to college the same time….and basically everything you’ve been saying about wanting to be known as a “good girl” while still basically doing what I wanted, was me in the late 80s. (because I knew it all of course) If I’m really being honest…it still is me at 46. This has been like deja vu in a book. I’m only half way through it but I’m loving every page. Thank you. It is pricking my heart in all the right places. I already bought A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet, but I’m telling my teacher friends to go get it for free. Thank you again.

    Thank you so much! We are driving from Georgia to Illinois this week, and now I have something AWESOME to read on the way! {{{hugs}}}

    Thanks for the heads-up! I have the paperback but would love an e-copy for my Nook also. :) Heading to B&N to download now…

  17. Thank you. I would love to be able to read your first book. I’m reading Home is Where My People Are now, and I love it! Although I’m quite a bit older than you, I grew up in the United Methodist Church, too. I could identify with everything you said. I love the way the book is humorous, but at the same time, it has deep spiritual insight. Your sense of humor brings me so much enjoyment. I wish you much success on your future books.

  18. Thanks, Sophie, for the “heads up” on the free download! I enjoyed reading my hard copy, but now it’s nice to have it on my iPad also! Thanks for the laughter (and wisdom) you send our way thru your blogs & books!

  19. Thank you, Sophie, for this awesome book! I downloaded after a post by LifeVerse on Facebook and what a treasure. My Mom, her sweet sisters, and my cousins are written between all the lines. Bless you for bringing back the memories of growing up a Southern girl, even though Virginia is on the edge! This book has warmed my heart and my Mom would have loved it!
