SHRILUGH and THE DARKENING: Paperbacks on sale!

klftuyHi y’all! Just a quick heads-up – both of my books, Shrilugh, and The Darkening are on sale at Amazon right now. The paperbacks, not the eBooks. Since this is an Amazon-instigated discount, I don’t know how long it will last, so hustle on over! :)

The really cool thing is, if you buy both books, the total is $25.77…which means, FREE SHIPPING! Holla!

If you’re a sucker for the old-fashioned way of reading this is a great time to pick ‘em up. Feel free to tell everybody you know, ’cause, you know I love it when you do that.

Lots of love from your biggest fan,

Myndi

Books! Books! Books!

SBC Option A jpeg Summertime is upon us. For me, that means lots of things. Hot weather. Restless natives. Quick drives to Sonic for happy hour. 

And book boyfriends.

I’m a constant reader. If my nose isn’t crammed into a book for at least an hour on a daily basis, I become a cranky, unpleasant individual. My need to read always grows in the summertime. I don’t know why. Maybe it stems from being a farmer’s daughter: in the summer, lots of time was spent in the cab of a grain truck, waiting and reading. Or sprawled out in the hay meadow, waiting to be picked up for the day, reading. Or, after a long hot day of work, sitting on the dock with my feet in the pond, reading.

I would devour books in the summertime. And I still do.

Do you?

If the answer is ‘YES’, then lucky for you, we’re BFF’s. If the answer is ‘NO’, then sit your @$$ down and finish this post because you ain’t going NOWHERE until I’ve converted you. (‘Yes’-ers, hang tight. I’m putting on my Pretty Proselytizing Pants. This might take a minute.)

WHY YOU SHOULD BE DEVOURING BOOKS IN THE SUMMER TIME:

(1) Books are fat-free. You can toss ‘em back left and right and the only thing you’re going to gain is a whole lotta mental stimulation and relaxation from your break with reality. Your bikini bod won’t suffer a bit.

(2) Summertime TV sucks. Big Brother, anyone? *gag* Turn the boob-tube off and pick up a book. Your brain will thank you.

(3) Book boyfriends are HOT. How else could you, in one summer’s time, crush on a Boy Next Door With An Unexpected Tattoo In A Secret Place, a Secret Agent Who Writes Poetry In His Spare Time, and a Sexy Geek With The Body Of A Greek God without becoming the world’s most notorious flirt? This summer I fully intend to crush on a Gunslinger (a summertime tradition, one started in the aforementioned hay meadow), a Man-Wolf, and a Guy Who’s Name Is Actually A Number. And that’s just for starters.

And ya know what? I’m not ashamed.

(4) A total, reality-erasing getaway is just a couple pages away! We all need a vacation…and sometimes we need more vacation than our budgets can manage. Books fix that. Really, truly, they do.

I feel like I need to que some quiet music and tell everybody to bow their heads and say a Summer Book Reader Conversion Prayer, but maybe that’s taking things a bit too far…

*cricket, cricket*

Now that we’re all on the same page (SAY IT WITH ME: DEVOURING BOOKS IN THE SUMMER IS AWESOME AND SHOULD BE OBJECTIVE #1 ON ALL OF YOUR SUMMERTIME TO-DO LISTS), I’m about to make your day.

Your week.

Your month.

Hell, maybe even your year.

How does this sound:

50+ BOOKS. ALL PRICED AT 99¢ EACH. TODAY THROUGH THE 28th.

Holy freaking cow, right?? Take a little jaunt over to www.summerbookcrush.wordpress.com to see what it’s all about. Loads of genres, loads of books (and loads of possibilities for book boyfriends. FANGIRLS UNITE!)

(I’m really super proud of this little project – me and the fabulous Angela Orlowski-Peart – whose wolf-man I’m planning on crushing on this summer – had a BLAST putting it together.)

So why are you still here? Go there, right now. www.summerbookcrush.wordpress.com

Getchyerself some new books. Buy some for your friends. Buy some for your family. Make this the summer of love and buy some for your enemies! And read, good people. READ!

A Favor to Ask, and also, a [substitute] Quick Giggle!

UntitledIt’s been a good week. Like, a really good week. I’m trying really hard to soak it in, savor it, because I know that life can be a wishy-washy little bastard, and the lows are bound to return. But this isn’t a low spot. It’s a high one. And I’m grinning ear to ear.

Thanks so much, you guys, for all the support with the launch for The Darkening. It’s been so much fun to watch those rankings rise (or drop, however you want to look at it). It’s been AMAZING to get feedback, and hear the excitement the book is generating.

Couple of little housekeeping things:

ONE: Did you know that I’m doing a month-long chat over at Goodreads? Follow this link and join in the conversations, or start your own. I check back there a few times a day to answer questions and stuff. I’d LOVE to visit with you!!

TWO: If you read The Darkening, I’d love it if you left a review. Amazon, Smashwords, Goodreads, wherever – reviews are LIFEBLOOD for authors, especially an indie like me who’s still trying to make a name for herself. I don’t care if you loved or hated the book (but, c’mon, you loved it, right?) – I really really really truly really need reviews. Am I begging? Yeah, sort-of. *throws pouty look your way*

THREE: Read An Ebook Week is still going strong over at Smashwords! Shrilugh is FREE (click here), and The Darkening is only TWO BUCKS (click here)! How amazing is that? Please tell everybody you know, and feel free to gift Shrilugh to anybody you think might enjoy it. Then they’ll be like, “Wow, so-and-so bought me a book! How thoughtful is that? I must return the favor and buy them a 100 year old bottle of Scotch!”, and you’ll be all like, “Hee, hee, hee, I’m SO not telling them that book was free! SUCKER!”, and I’ll be all like, “Yay! Somebody new got my book!”, and then we’ll all be dancing around our houses in undies and t-shirts singing into imaginary microphones while the family cat looks on with his usual bemused expression.

….um…

That escalated quickly.

*cough*

Okay. I think that’s enough. Let’s move on to more important things. Like this week’s Quick Giggle. A little warning: There is some rough language, but this one had me literally LOLing, so I’m going with it. Anybody who’s ever had a substitute teacher who was a little big for his britches should get a kick out of it. Enjoy!
