Happy Independence Day & Happy Reading

Today, just about everyone in America is celebrating Independence Day. I am grateful and appreciative of all those who have served our country from Colonial days to present day.

The 4 F's of Celebration

We celebrate with family, friends, food, and fun. Family and friends gather to feast on barbeque, smoked brisket, baked beans, potato salad, watermelon, ice cream, cakes, gallons of sweet tea, and so much more.

The fun part is touch football, softball, pitching horseshoes, cranking the ice cream churn, playing card games, and board games while we talk about what's been happening in our lives.

When we're all full and tired, we drift into watching movies or napping or reading. You might get lucky and manage a little of all three.

July 4th Reading Fun

Want to fill your ereader with some great books at a low price? Now's your chance.

You don't have to be American to take advantage of these holiday bargains. although I give only the Amazon links, all these books are available to all readers and usually can be found at all ebook sellers.

For July 4th, here are 4 of the great bargains available now. Download them all and have a holiday weekend full of great reading.

(1) My continuing Summer Sale this week is for The Trouble With Love (A Romantic Comedy) (Texas One Night Stands Book 1). The price is reduced to only 99 cents until July 7.

If you get any of my books and like them, please take a couple of minutes to leave a short review. If you do, send me a link to the review. I'll send you a coupon for a free book as a thank you.

(2) Weddings on Main Street (11 Novels by Bestselling Authors) only 99 cents for 11 Romance Novellas. My latest romance April Fool Bride is included in this box set. I hope you'll get this collection and enjoy it.

(Remember, if you post a review of my book, send me a link so I can thank you with a free book coupon.)

(3) Ten Brides for Ten Heroes is another Romance Box Set, also by bestselling authors and also priced at only 99 cents.

Several of my friends have books in this set so I know you won't go wrong by grabbing it too.

The authors of Ten Brides also offer a free companion cookbook, The Ten Brides for Ten Heroes Cookbook, also available on Smashwords and probably the other ebook sellers too. The authors have contributed 20 recipes for the cookbook.

4) For something a little different--and adorable--be sure and get Must Love Pets: A Romance Box Set. If you're a pet owner and a romance reader, you'll love this collection.

These are only a few of the many romance box set collections available, starting at free and going up. Most are priced at 99 cents.

Readers may wonder why they can get so many books for so little money. Authors do this as a way to introduce their writing to new readers as well as to show appreciation to their existing fans.
