Have A Happy Thanksgiving!

Cornucopia November

Name two things you are grateful for that are unique to you.

I am grateful that I had a pet bearded dragon for a few years and learned about reptiles.

I am grateful for a special tree that I hug two times a week when I walk past it on the way to work.

Your turn.

Written Across the Genres $2.99 Price Increases in One More Day.

Cover spread for Written Across the GenresArleen Eagling wrote a Mainstream Fiction story called “Valuable” in Written Across the Genres. Here is an excerpt:

“Now that Robert saw her from the side, he was sure the woman had been there before. She looked different, though. Maybe all the black on her was distracting, or maybe she’d lost weight or something. He took his place behind the register.”

You can read the story to find out who this woman is and why she’s in the store. (Hint, it’s not to buy something.)

I compiled this anthology to give readers experiences in reading genres they normally wouldn’t choose. If you are a mystery reader for instance, you will find a mysterious character in this story, which could help you to consider reading mainstream fiction in the future.

The KDP special changes every two days. The price for my eBook of $2.99 will increase to $3.99 in one more day. Click here to purchase.

Will O’ The Wisp

Michelle Rene Goodhew’s book recommendation.

Mundus Media Ink

Will O’ the Wisp is a paranormal tale from C. S. Boyack. It involves a mildly handicapped girl facing a mysterious threat. The wisp has been killing off Patty Hall’s family for generations, and she’s next on the list. It is suitable for young adult readers. It’s a perfect Halloween read.
