Celebrating Summer of Fortune Launch with a Long Weekend Sale

It’s been a whirlwind two weeks, launching the first full length book of the Fortune Bay series, Summer of Fortune, with a party under the grape arbor in my garden last weekend.

Commemorative Gwertztraminer wine made specially for the launch with the Summer of Fortune cover on the label.

I was selling and signing paperback books at cost at the party for all of my friends, and would like to pass on the savings to everyone this weekend with an online eBook sale.

From July 1-4, for Canada day and the Fourth of July weekend, I’m offering the ebook of Summer of Fortune for $1.99 on Kindle and kobo. (Read more about the book here.)

The party was really to celebrate the launch of the whole series. I had been working on it for eight years, and it was wonderful to have so many friends and family were there who had been so supportive for so many years.

I know, so many “so’s”, but so true!

I come from a tradition of painters, and in that world, they do a bunch of paintings then have a show. You might sell some you might not, but either way, it’s a great excuse for a party! That’s really what this was.

It was a beautiful day, the food was wonderful, the weather cooperated and the sun shone, and old friends and new, painters, writers,musicians and readers all came together to celebrate. Thank you all for all your support.

So if you read eBooks, go to Kindle or kobo and get your copy. (You can download a free app to your tablet or phone.) Then curl up in your favourite chair outdoors and enjoy the long summer weekend.

Welcome to Fortune Bay
