I'm excited to announce that Las Vegas - the first novella of The Girls Series - is in the hands of the formatter and will be published soon. Las Vegas, the first novella of The Girls Series, brings us Adeline, Anna and Carolyn - three women set on making their next few years more fun than the last few.
Tea and Honey - the ninth book in the Tea Series - is in the hands of the editor and will be off to the formatter soon.
If you haven't started The Tea Series yet -- now would be a great time to start. =)
The characters in The Tea Series are people you'd like to know and part of a family that welcomes you with open arms. More than 150,000 copies of the books in this series have been sold. You will find that each book in the series is a fast and fun read. Each installment of the series is a hybrid of the traditional novel and the serial novel (each is a full-length novel and leads directly into the next installment. - and best when read in order) The first book of the series - Hot Tea - is price reduced for a limited time. Each book is just $2.99.

Four books bundled at a discounted price of just $6.99
I hope you will give them a try.

Killer Wedding This is a fun cozy-type mystery. Madelyn Bean is a LA caterer to the rich & famous. Jerrilyn Farmer was a television writer and gets the feel of the town right, created a sympathetic character in Maddie, and has some charming supporting characters. My favorite of hers is "Sympathy for the Devil" which is NOT 99 cents, but is under $5, so if you like this one you may want to check it out.

Mirth of a Nation are 140 humor pieces, ranging from well-knowns to relative unknowns. Between Dave Barry, Dave Eggers and David Rakoff, you're sure to find something you'll like. Some of the pieces may be a little dated (this came out in 2000) but many pieces are still great. Part of the HarperCollins 99 cents.
The only drawback is that the contributors are not listed in the contents. This can be a happy surprise (hey, Al Franken! P.J. O'Rourke!), but a bummer in being unable to skim the offerings, looking for favorites. Also, it doesn't have the great cover of the original.
Also check out More MIrth of a Nation, also 99 cents.

"First, I’ll tell about the robbery our parents committed.Then the murders, which happened later."
So begins Canada, the unforgettable story of Dell Parsons,a young man forced by catastrophic circumstances to reconcile himself to a world rendered unrecognizable. Spirited across the Montana border into Saskatchewan and taken in by Arthur Remlinger, an enigmatic man whose own past exists on the other side of the border, Dell struggles to understand what his future can be even as he comes to understand the violence simmering below the surface in his new life.
In this brilliant novel, set largely in Saskatchewan, Richard Ford has created a masterwork. Haunting and spectacular in vision, Canada is a novel rich with emotional clarity and lyrical precision, and an acute sense of the grandeur of living. It is a classic-in-the-making from one of our time’s greatest writers.

A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America Set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are. Equal parts philosophical quest and screwball comedy, Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value. It is an exuberant, uniquely American exploration of the passions that make us human - and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can do.
