The Big Halfway To One-Hundred Party

…or – The Giveaway Of The Century

Yeah… You read that correctly. Giveaway. As in FREE stuff. Read on…

That’s right. Gear is down, outer marker crossed, and the runway is rushing up to meet me. I’ll be 50 on February 20th – somewhere in the wee hours of the morning when I am up drinking coffee and most of you are either still sleeping or in some cases, getting ready to head out the door to work.

“So?” says you. “Big deal.”

Actually, I concur. HOWEVER, since some people insist on celebrating these things:

Starting at 12:01 AM on February 19, 2012 and going through 11:59 PM on February 20, 2012, the two exclusive Kindle compilations from the Rowan Gant Series will be absolutely free. Yeah, FREE. As in, I’m giving YOU a gift for my birthday… What’s wrong with THAT picture?

Well, hey, it’s a party, right?



And remember, MERRIE AXEMAS, the e-Novella that launched the Constance Mandalay novels is ALWAYS free


So… Betwixt and Between the hours – and dates – listed above, simply surf yourself over to Amazon and load your Kindle – or Kindle app – with two compilations. That’s a grand total of 6 novels for nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero. No cost to you.

And… Happy Birthday.
