FREEBIES for all ages

At What Price (women's contemporary fiction) is free for the weedend.  February 9 & 10

Katherine Gardner is awakened at 6:30 in the morning by a strange woman, claiming to have Rio, her granddaughter. Katherine hasn't seen Rio in four years, since her daughter, strung out on drugs, ripped the little girl from her arms, promising she would never see her again. Panic sets in as the woman says the police will be called if arrangements aren't made, immediately, for Rio to be picked up. Apparently nothing has changed with her daughter, but now Rio's life is affected. Katherine had to do something before it's too late.

Katherine is fifty-nine years old and all alone after the death of her husband, three years earlier. Her life takes a dramatic turn when she steps up to take care of her granddaughter. Rio is a scared little girl whose life is filled with uncertainty and fear.

In her grandmother, Rio finds a safe haven and an unconditional love that she had never known in her six short years and Katherine finds a love to fill the void that had been absent for way too long. Life for the two of them falls into a trusting relationship until the daughter, who deserted Rio, resurfaces with other ideas.

At what lengths will a grandmother go to save the ones she loves? Will Katherine be able to save Rio or will the little girl's world be ripped apart once again?

A Float Down the Canal (MG/tween story for the girls in your lives) is free through March 7  This is a short, feel good story that has you cheering for the under dog!   Use the coupon code  SH69H

Twelve-year old Pam Simpson gets dumped on when her mother is called into work. She must cancel her plans for the mall to babysit her younger brother and his friend and take them to the public pool.  To make matters worse her cousin, Candy, is also coming over for the day.  She doesn’t even like Candy!

Much to Candy’s dismay, transportation to the pool is on inner tubes, floating down the canal.  One thing leads to another and it is Pam who, once again, must save the day.

When things couldn’t seem worse, the day takes a drastic turn for the better and it is Candy, and the float down the canal, that makes this the best day of Pam’s life!
