FREE! Red Madrassa, Book 1 (Algardis): Dec 15-17


Download RED MADRASSA Book 1 of the Algardis series for FREE – 3 days only.  I’m closing out 2013 with a bang, including the giveaway of a $60 Amazon Gift Card on 12/31 and the Cover Reveal for Sworn to Raise on 12/28!

Get ready for 2013 because I’ll be releasing a ton more YA Fantasy, Contemporary Fantasy and New Adult Contemporary!

Red Madrassa - 600x900


I plan to update this post during the day when I can (keeping in mind the frequent lack of internet & power where I am). Feel free to duck in and out during the day and see how things are going.

This is my first KDP freebie run and I’m excited to see how it goes. Note: I did notify several sites about my free day,  but I did not tweet about the free days. I find the over tweeting slightly obnoxious and with the time difference/power cuts I wouldn’t have been able to reach my target twitter audience anyway.

THANK YOU to all the websites who posted about my free book: Kindle Nation, Snickslist, IndieReader, Free eBooks for Nook & Kindle,  Free Fantasy Book, Free Book Dude

  1. Sad I missed the free opportunity. However I just found you on kickstarter and pledged for the $30 goal. I am excited about a new YA author and I look forward to reading your books ^_^
