Writing news of "Yay!"

What Scotland Taught Me, the novel once known as Tourist Attractions or The Yank Girl's Guide to Cheating Abroad, is now finally available as an ebook. Look--it's currently on the publisher's front page! And seriously, I can't get over how gorgeous that cover art turned out.

As it's the featured book of the week, or month, or something, its price is cut in half for a limited time, making it a temptingly low $2.50. The genre is young adult on the cusp of adult; a snarky-yet-sweet comeuppance tale with lots of romance and a few ghost stories, and several moments in which I describe how pretty Edinburgh and other Scottish locations are.

Read the first chapter for free here.

This novel underwent lots of merciless and extremely useful critiquing by several writers, who I hope are reading this. I worked your suggestions in, and the book has become much better for it. I can't thank you enough!

Incidentally, it's also available for Kindle, but Amazon controls the pricing there.

Now, in OTHER fun writing news, here's a complete short story of mine that you can read for free. It's called "Midsummer Daisies" and is 3,000 words of paranormal romance, and is currently being outvoted by my competition, so get yourself a (free) login at AllRomanceEbooks and please vote for it! Here's the page--my worthy competition and I are Pair #8.

Have a great weekend, regardless of what you read or don't read. Cheers!

Merciless? Was I merciless?

Heheh--no, you were thorough, but not merciless. Others showed less mercy, but I thank them for it, as it made the whole story work better.

I still have to finish reading your latest installment and send you my thoughts. You're not alone...my inbox is a sea of unanswered cool stuff! I feel bad and will get there soon.

Hurray! Thanks so much. That earns you "my favorite person of the day" status. It's in my contract and everything.

Ebooks are indeed perfect for you world travelers. Happy readin' and flyin'. (Or just reading, if you're done flying.)
