#FridayThoughts: Not entirely shameless plug


It’s Friday and I figure it’s as good a day as any to tell you to read my books!

You’ll enjoy adventuring with her.

She insists.

Or click my name when you get to Amazon and pick another! This collection of short stories below is FREE!

Have a great weekend!

Have Her Cousin, Much Removed


How I’ve waited for H, wanting to hurry along the alphabet. H gives us matching pronouns (hers and his) happiness, hunger and hankering, a fun word that doesn’t tell you anything about what it means. But none of those words are why.

H, today, is for Her Cousin, Much Removed, my cozy mystery that made its debut last week, and today (April 9) and tomorrow (April 10) it’s free! Meet Venetia Shipman, former-lawyer-turned-urban gardener. When her sort-of cousin, Delenda O’Brien dies, Venetia finds herself in the middle of the investigation. And not in a good way.

Help yourself to a copy, and enjoy. It’s twisty.

cozy final cover Her Cousin, Much Removed by I. L. Wolf. Amazon for FREE. Venetia Shipman wasn’t exactly fond of her cousin(ish) Delenda O’Brien, and Delenda’s sudden death didn’t really change that, especially since it looks like Delenda was trying to frame Venetia for something. What, she doesn’t know, but now this lawyer-turned-urban-gardener is in it up to her eyeballs thanks to her, and, to make it worse, Delenda died without even returning Venetia’s platter.

Now she may never get it back.

Detective Cadby James is on the case, and while he may not be too bad looking, Venetia isn’t so sure he can solve the murder without her help. Whether he wants it or not.

Download Better Living Through GRAVY and Other Oddities. It’s also free! It’s a free bonanza!

Discover the Daffadors for Free Book Friday


The delightful cover design drew my eye to Drew Chase’s The Daffadors. And that does it with the D words. I don’t know why, but I can’t seem to dream them up today. Darn. Anyway, help yourself to this free book, or any of the others under the “Free Book Friday” category, and let’s hope that E comes, well, easily.

The Daffadors: The Rivalry by Drew Chase. FREE from Smashwords.com
David McKreedy, a fourth grader with amnesia, discovers that he’s a powerful king from another planet. Several years earlier, he stopped his triplet brothers from taking over the universe. Now, they’ve escaped eternal imprisonment and are up to their old schemes. With the help of his talking dog and a team of his classmates, David fights against his brothers’ new intergalactic war.

Discover Indies on Free Book Friday


Starting off my first A-to-Z Challenge Free Book Friday, D is for discovery, and while I can’t tell you yet all the forms that will take (mainly because at this precise moment, I don’t know), this morning it has a dual meaning. It’s part of the title, sure, but you also might discover an indie author you’re glad you found. Now wish me luck for F on Monday, because “Free Book Friday” would have covered it.

Want more free books? Just hit the “Free Book Friday” category on the sidebar. And you can also sign up for my newsletter if you so desire (I feel like I’m really delinquent on the Ds).

Seeds of Discovery: Dusk Gate Chronicles by Breeana Puttroff. FREE from Smashwords.com
