As I mentioned last week, Smashwords 10th annual Summer defc9d31-3e4e-48be-898d-11cd173ab0fcsale runs July 1-31 and I’m offering my novels for  50% off, so use code SSW50 at checkout, even though the books have a marked down price on each of their pages.

If you haven’t gotten ebooks from Smashwords, you’ll find over 40,000 exclusive deals in their Summer Sale. Discount levels are 25%-off, 50%-off, 75%-off and 100%-off (FREE). You’ll also find over 75,000 titles that are regularly priced at free, including free series starters from USA Today and New York Times bestsellers. (Latitudes & Cattitudes, the prequel to Xander’s Sea Purrtector Series is always free and no code is required.) IF you have a Kindle, choose mobi —epub works with most other devices. They also make our books available in PDF, etc, so you can read them on your computer instead of a device. This is a screenshot of Star Bridge’s page:sb

Did you notice the 3 yellow buttons under the description? epub is used on B&N’s Nooks and iPhones through the iTunes iBook App.; the second button is mobi(kindle), which is self explanatory; 3rd is PDF, so you can read on your computer. I think they offer 6 or 7 formats, but those three are the most common, but if you need a different format, press ‘more’. Once you choose your format, you add it to your shopping cart, but remember to apply code SSW50 to each of my books at checkout. Every book that’s in their Summer Sale will require a code, but that is on the page for each book and it generally simply reflects which discount you’re getting. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, be sure to monitor the sale throughout July, because thousands of new titles will join the promotion as the month progresses. p1110343

I make sure to join this annual sale because my books are family-friendly, and readable by kids as young as 10, if they’re proficient readers. I don’t know about you, but IMHO, reading books is better for growing minds than playing video games and with the summer looming, I always want kids to have a good stockpile of reading material. Since I’m speaking about that, Marcha Fox has The Terra Debacle: Prisoners at Area 51 (Star Trails Tetralogy Book 7)  on 50% off, too. While this is part of a series, it can easily be read separately because it’s from Thyron (sentient plant)’s point of view… I love that little guy. On his own planet, he is considered a god, so he can be pompous as a cat. (I suspect you know exactly which cat I’m thinking of.) It’s a great story for kids and they’ll learn a bit about science while reading a fun story. (March is retired from NASA.)

Hope you find some great reads!

    1. I hope so, too. I tried to boil things down to basics and use simple language, but if I took something for granted, I hope someone asks.
      Have a great day, Ellen!
