The Old Year Is Dying!

The old year, 2013 is nearly gone, and the Kindle Countdown for "The Peaks at the Edge of the World Trilogy" is slipping by.  The bargain price of $1.99 for all three of the first books is nearly past.  Act before the price goes up again!  Remember the sale ends Jan. 3.

Book Four, "When the World Grows Cold" (The Sequel to the Trilogy) will be free for Kindle downloads only two days, Jan. 1 & 2.

If you don't have a Kindle, all these books are also available in paperback through Create-Space Store or reasonable prices for good quality books.

Here's hoping the New Year will be a good one!

It's Not Just New Year's --It's the 8th Day of Christmas!

Did you know Christmas has really just begun? Today, Dec. 26, is only the second day of The Twelve Days of Christmas, according to the traditional church calendar, established in Medieval times.

So how about celebrating with me? "The Peaks at the Edge of the World" Trilogy is on what's called a Kindle Countdown. Beginning at 8 a.m. Pacific time on Dec. 28, the price is only 99 cents--for the entire trilogy! The price will go up by one dollar increments through January 2, and return to its original price of $7.99 at 8 a.m. on Jan. 3. This deal is for Kindle only.
BUT once you've got the Trilogy, you can get the sequel, Book 4--"When the World Grows Cold" for Kindle FREE on Jan. 1 & 2 to welcome in the New Year.

As the old song goes, "Fast away the old year passes...Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la
By the way, the 12th day of Christmas is January 5...

Winter is Officially Here!

December 21 - Arrival of the Winter Solstice

8:35 a.m. local Montana time: the sun is officially up, but hidden in clouds, of course. We greet the Winter Solstice with four inches of fluffy, beautiful snow--it's a winter wonderland-for now...and now the daylight hours last a minute or two longer each day- the Dragon hasn't swallowed the sun (or is it Son?) Check out Revelation chapter12, for the symbolism of this.

I find I'm using a lot of this kind of spiritual symbology in my books. It runs through the myths and tales of nearly all ancient cultures--interesting... sometimes it's some other fearsome creature. And sometimes there's an unlikely hero who rescues the light-like the Raven in some native Alaskan tales.

Time to get ready for the ultimate winter journey in the Peaks Saga - BOOK FOUR:  "WHEN THE WORLD GROWS COLD".  If you haven't read the first three books, you can still get them at LOW Kindle prices of $2.99  And through Sunday, 12/23 Book Three is FREE.

Merry Christmas!

Counting Down to the Winter Solstice

Some of you may have noticed that I've been counting down to the Winter Solstice on my Facebook Page for the past month.  And it's almost here.  My first step in setting up my very own circle of standing stones!

Meanwhile, you can also get FREE deals on my first "Peaks Saga" books to celebrate Winter:
OKAY, THE FINAL COUNTDOWN IS HERE! Between now and the Winter Solstice, you can get my first three books FREE for Kindle, on the following dates:
Book One: Finding the Light - Dec. 13-14
Book Two: Searching for Maia - Dec. 16-18
Book Three: Mountaintops & Valleys - Dec. 20-22

Then you'll be really ready for Winter--and you can move on to Book 4: When the World Grows Cold ( how's that for a wintery title?)...

Anybody out there know how to say "Merry Christmas" in Latin?   It's 'Io Saturnalia' !

Let's Get Online

We are in the middle of blizzard right now.  I get tired of fighting the crowds and the weather, trying to do Christmas shopping.  Seems I have spent a lot of my life living in remote places, too.  I used to tease my husband that we always lived 60 miles from anywhere!

Before the Internet, I did a lot of catalog shopping, and I still do that occasionally.  But increasingly I find that I do more on-line shopping.  Especially since I got my Kindle.

Speaking of Kindle, watch the Kindle store for Free download offers this month.  I am going to put each book of "The Peaks at the Edge of the World" saga on sale at some point.

Right now it's the newest one, "When the World Grows Cold"  --now that's an appropriate title for what the weather is doing here right now--can't you tell I wrote most of this book in winter?  Well, you'll know if you read it...
