Free Days

Another holiday weekend is approaching, so I set up a free promotion for The 30th Day this coming Saturday and Sunday, July 2nd and 3rd.  My blog post of February 26, 2016 provides an introduction to how the book came about (it was written with a very dear friend this past winter).  Here is a direct link to the book on Amazon’s ebooks site:, or it can be found through my Amazon author page at   Thank you to everyone who has read the book and for the feedback my friend and I have received from so many.

Enjoy a safe Fourth of July, everyone!

Three Days for The 30th Day

Popping in to let readers know that The 30th Day will be free on Amazon’s ebooks all three days this Memorial Day weekend, Saturday through Monday.  My blog post of February 26, 2016 gives some details about the book and how it came to be (pull up February 2016 in the Archives box in the column to the right to find the post most easily).

If you miss the free window, the cost is just $2.99.  You don’t have to own a Kindle to read an ebook.  Apps are readily available that allow you to read them on a variety of electronic devices.

If you read the book and like it, a short review would be greatly appreciated.  You can do a review by visiting your Amazon account page and pulling up recent purchases.

Meanwhile, to all the soldiers and veterans out there:  Thank you for your service, especially on this coming day which honors your fallen brethren.  It looks like the weather in the DC area will be great for Rolling Thunder, an annual event held on the Sunday before Memorial Day that draws attention to and advocates for POWs and MIA service members.  It has grown from a couple of thousand riders in 1988 to half a million in recent years.  Riders gather in the Pentagon parking lot and at noon they start up their bikes at the same time (my, what a roar!).  They proceed slowly across the Memorial Bridge to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.  It is a powerful thing to witness.  I can barely imagine what it must be like to actually participate.  Who knows.  Maybe some day I’ll be towing a motorcycle behind my little house and will be able to join the ride.

Everyone, enjoy this weekend and stay safe!

The 30th Day, Free, 4/2-4/3

The 30th Day will be available for free on Amazon’s ebook site this weekend, April 2nd and 3rd.  If you miss the free days, the regular price is just $2.99.

If you read and enjoy the book, please consider doing a short review of it on Amazon.  This is really helpful for search rankings and future sales.  After all, people can’t buy it if they can’t find it… not to mention the encouragement it provides to the author!  If you go to your account page and find your recent purchases, you can review it from there.

My blog post of February 26th provides a few details on the story’s subject and the writing and publishing process.  You can find that post by clicking on February 2016 under “Archives” in the column to the right.
