A note from your friendly neighborhood writer (I know, I know, I’m not the only one!): Sorry about this strange truncated post, but it’s my husband’s birthday and I don’t feel like doing anything, and besides I didn’t promo yesterday.
Real post tomorrow, I promise.
Also FYI I HATE the new WordPress posting interface, which they make really clean by hiding ABSOLUTELY everything and then you have to poke around till you find it. And they don’t let you switch back to the class mode.
I can see where this would be way more useful for stuff like, oh, a store or a vlog, but none of the stuff that’s “new and cool” is stuff I need, and I can’t find any of the things I actually want, like how to center the pictures without figuring out pictographs they invented for the occasion. Grrr. Argh.
Meanwhile, kick back, consider one of these books, and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do.
*Note these are books sent to us by readers/frequenters of this blog. Our bringing them to your attention does not imply that we’ve read them and/or endorse them, unless we specifically say so. As with all such purchases, we recommend you download a sample and make sure it’s to your taste. If you wish to send us books for next week’s promo, please email to bookpimping at outlook dot com. If you feel a need to re-promo the same book do so no more than once every six months (unless you’re me or my relative. Deal.) One book per author per week. Amazon links only. Oh, yeah, by clicking through and buying (anything, actually) through one of the links below, you will at no cost to you be giving a portion of your purchase to support ATH through our associates number. I ALSO WISH TO REMIND OUR READERS THAT IF THEY WANT TO TIP THE BLOGGER WITHOUT SPENDING EXTRA MONEY, CLICKING TO AMAZON THROUGH ONE OF THE BOOK LINKS ON THE RIGHT, WILL GIVE US SOME AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR PURCHASES MADE IN THE NEXT 24HOURS, OR UNTIL YOU CLICK ANOTHER ASSOCIATE’S LINK. PLEASE CONSIDER CLICKING THROUGH ONE OF THOSE LINKS BEFORE SEARCHING FOR THAT SHED, BIG SCREEN TV, GAMING COMPUTER OR CONSERVATORY YOU WISH TO BUY. That helps defray my time cost of about 2 hours a day on the blog, time probably better spent on fiction. ;)*
FROM MACKEY CHANDLER: Who Can Own the Stars?
The Kingdom of Central’s sovereign, Heather Anderson, set L1 as a limit for armed ships to respect, de-militarizing the Solar System. Now that the Earth nations are experimenting with star drives they want to challenge this limit anew. The USNA starship, Constitution is intercepted violating the L1 limit and brings them to the brink of war again. Will Peer Jeffrey Singh be able to negotiate a compromise? Do the Earthies mean to bargain in good faith? The Spacers need to buy time but things on Earth are always so complicated…
FROM ELIZABETH BRUNER: Drawing the Magic
Can magic be a substitute for drugs? It sure seems like it.
Christopher Chevalier and Listrial, the Fairy Queen, are in Arizona searching for clues about terrifying monsters and the people who fight them and finding more questions than answers.
Winifred and her crew have been knocked for a loop, all their lives turned upside down, and they have a bad feeling about what’s coming next. When Izzy gets in trouble, all hell could break loose.
Dan Ben-David needs answers and he needs them fast. Everything is spiraling out of his control and he doesn’t want to ask for help. Instead, he’s trying to figure everything out on his own and it’s going from bad to worse. He’s in desperate need of help and a sandwich.
FROM JULIA BLAINE: Tea and Sympathy and Emus
A whimsical, quirky story. How could it not be with naughty emus and flying pigs?
On her own for the first time in years, Linda wants to learn to take care of herself again. She’s not doing a spectacular job of it.
Sheriff Deputy Dan Granger doesn’t like making mistakes, especially when he is on duty. He’s made Linda’s new independent life more difficult. When he tries to fix his mistakes, he can’t quite get it right. And it’s more and more important to Dan that he makes everything right.
Can he make this romance fly? Or will birds that don’t fly and pigs that do, get in the way?

FROM PAM UPHOFF: Cool as Ice
Ice is back. He’s got a job, a girlfriend, four talking horses, and now he bought a wreck of a house, hemmed with conflicting requirements of the Historical Society, building codes and fire regulations . . . He’s almost too busy to worry about the looming trial of a former president.
