What do you like?



You can't buy much with a dollar anymore, can you? Unless you're at the dollar store you can get a small candy bar (Forget about the king size), a pack of gum, a loaf of bread and maybe, if on sale, a dozen eggs. None of those are overly entertaining, but I have something that is entertaining for only a buck! Books! There are 10 books on my Amazon dashboard that are only 99cents. I've been hearing and seeing from other authors who are convinced selling a book for 99 cents is bad business. Good thing I'm not running a business, instead I'm sharing stories of hope and love. That's why I have so many books for .99, because reading shouldn't break the bank. I have romance, romantic suspense, trips to Hawaii, a race through Duluth Minnesota, and a small town love, just to name a few. Since some aren't familiar with my work, I thought I would share the read inside portion of each book from Amazon. Feel free to spend some time looking around and find a lot of entertaining for a little green. If you pay for Kindle Unlimited, you can get ALL 22 of my books for free! Okay, let's get started.
