It’s Read an Ebook Week at Smashwords

March 4 – 10 is Read an Ebook Week at Smashwords where authors can offer discounts on their books that run anywhere from 25% to 100% off the usual price.  In addition to offering four of my books for free (which I’ll list in a moment) I have asked authors who frequent the Self-Published Author’s Lounge (a blog I co-administer) if they’d like to share their books that are on sale. 

Here’s my disclaimer:  I have not read most of the books that authors submitted to the Self-Published Author’s Lounge blog, so I’m not endorsing these books. However, I’ll be passing them along in the upcoming week in case you find them interesting.  🙂  

Now, here are the four books I’m running a special on from March 4-10 on Smashwords and their links.  All of these will be free.  Just put in the RE100 coupon code and download them in the format you wish.  😀

Then there was Chogan who stirred her passion but came from the Mandan tribe-a man who lived a life foreign to her own. How can she possibly choose between two good men?

Shotgun Groom

April Edwards, a young widow, is content to manage a farm with her fourteen-year-old brother and a one-year-old daughter. Nothing, after all, could be worse than being married to her deceased husband. Nothing, that is, until her unscrupulous brother-in-law decides to marry her. With no other recourse, April and her brother concoct a plan–one that involves the unsuspecting doctor’s assistant, Joel Larson.

Joel Larson doesn’t want to be married. In fact, he’s perfectly happy with things the way they are, but when he’s sent to check on April’s sick child, things take an unexpected turn for the worse. In one instant, he finds a gun and a mandate to marry April staring him in the face. Can a marriage that begins with a shotgun be just the thing Joel needs or has April just confined herself to another miserable marriage?
