Reading Cheaply or #Free and Getting Through


If you can’t afford books right now and don’t do Kindle Unlimited, Scribd is an option for people who read e-pub e-books. They offer a free one month introduction. All my books are in Scribd. (But not Kindle Unlimited—an author can’t do both because of Amazon’s exclusivity requirement for KU, and I am committed to keeping my books widely available.) If you don’t read on an Apple, Kobo, or Nook device, you can install Adobe Digital Editions on a computer to read e-pub e-books. You can also borrow e-books from many public libraries.

This link will take you to all e-book retail sites for my books, including Scribd.


If you like to get e-books from a preferred retailer,  The Calling is free everywhere through April 23, and the other books in the Mae Martin Psychic Mystery series are now $2.99. The boxed set of the first three books is only $4.99. Small Awakenings, a collection of essays on mindfulness, is 99 cents. When the free promotion for book one is over, the price will be also be discounted. Discounts will last as long as the economic disruption of the pandemic lasts.

Getting Through

I hope you stay well. I’m coping by reading, writing, and socializing six feet apart outdoors. Walking and running are free. So are squats and pushups and home yoga practice. I’ve been calling friends and family I can’t travel to visit, reminding myself that for now, distancing is love and respect. We’ll get through this.

Mae Martin Mysteries Books 1-3 Boxed set by Amber Foxx

 The Calling

A missing father. A mother with a secret. A professor who might be a shaman—or a fraud. As Mae discovers her gift of “the sight,” she overturns her own life and the lives of those around her.

Shaman’s Blues

A gifted musician disappears. A questionable seer vanishes, to Santa Fe or another dimension. Finding two missing people proves easier for Mae than learning the truth about either—or getting one of them, once found, to go away again.

Snake Face

Musician Jamie Ellerbee needs Mae’s psychic aid. His tour is being trailed by bad luck, an anonymous fan, and a strange new friend—who may not be a friend after all.

No murder, just mystery. Every life hides a secret, and love is the deepest mystery of all

Dog Days of Summer #Mystery Sale #99cents

At least half of these books are published everywhere (I wish all of them were!), and the landing page makes it easy to see which are. No clicking on a book only to be disappointed that it’s not available for your preferred e-reader. Author Ann R. Tan organizes excellent promotions, checking the quality of the books to be included. Many of them look like the kind of mysteries my readers enjoy, and all are marked down to 99 cents for three days, July 27, 28 and 29. Snake Face, book three in the Mae Martin series, has never been discounted before and probably won’t be discounted again, so this is a great time to get a copy. Happy summer reading!

Shaman’s Blues

The second Mae Martin psychic mystery

 On the eve of her move to New Mexico, psychic and healer Mae Martin gets a double-edged going-away gift: beautiful music by a man who’s gone missing, and a request to find him. In her new home town, she quickly runs afoul of a questionable psychic who runs a health food restaurant. When Mae confronts her, the woman disappears—either to Santa Fe, or into another dimension. Now Mae has two missing persons on her hands. Finding them may prove easier than learning the truth about either or getting one of them, once found, to go away again.

Jinx And The Faerie Dragons

Jinx’s little sister, Ayla, has warned him time and time again that one day his mischief making will get him in to serious trouble. But Jinx isn’t interested in his sister’s warnings; not even when the trouble she warns him about is a cave full of goblins.

Like most pixies, Jinx loves to play tricks and explore. But, unlike most pixies, Jinx takes his tricks too far on a regular basis, causing chaos and taking risks that no other pixie would even consider, much to the amusement of his faerie dragon friends, Caia and Draco, and the annoyance of just about everyone else; especially Ayla. Now Jinx and his faerie dragon friends are off on a treasure hunt, and not even the threat of being captured and eaten by goblins is enough to stop them answering the call of adventure.”
