UPSIDE TO SNOW DAYS

 

Like many of you, I’ve complained loudly about the effects of recent winter storms. As an acknowledged introvert, I usually feel comfortable cloistered in my little house with my two cats for considerable lengths of time. But even I got cabin fever this year. My antidote to this restlessness involved an escape into books where protagonists led more exciting lives than mine.

Kindle Unlimited proved to be a great shopping spot for this escape.

I found a lot of new (to me) talented writers who have created well-written, interesting and intriguing books. Many are independent (self-published) writers who have gained a following in a non-traditional market. My own book, Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series Book 1) is available there. I hope you will check out the following artists and enjoy their stories:

Books one through five of the bestselling Joe Dillard series by Scott Pratt are offered in a box set at a discounted price and subscribers to Kindle Unlimited may read them free.

Scott Pratt has written a series of 5 legal thriller novels.  “An Innocent Client,” “In Good Faith,” “Injustice for All,” “Reasonable Fear” and “Conflict of Interest” have received a combined 1,800 FIVE-STAR reviews from readers. All five of the novels are consistently rated among the top-25 bestselling legal thrillers, and all five are among the most highly-rated novels on Amazon. Enjoy a quality set that will offer you more than forty hours of pleasure and entertainment — nearly 2,000 pages.

Tina Whittle’s Tai Randolph/Trey Seaver series 

Tina Whittle is a mystery writer living and working in the Georgia Low Country. Her Tai Randolph/Trey Seaver series — featuring intrepid gunshop owner Tai and her corporate security agent partner Trey — has garnered starred reviews in Kirkus, Publisher’s Weekly, Booklist, and Library Journal. Published by Poisoned Pen Press, this Atlanta-based series debuted with THE DANGEROUS EDGE OF THINGS, followed by DARKER THAN ANY SHADOW, BLOOD, ASH, AND BONE and DEEPER THAN THE GRAVE.

Melinda Leigh’s Scarlet Falls Series and She Can Run Series are available at KindleUnlimited.

Melinda Leigh’s debut novel, SHE CAN RUN, was nominated for Best First Novel by the International Thriller Writers. Her bestselling books have twice been nominated for the Daphne du Maurier Award.

Pamela Fagan Hutchins’ 3 book series, Katie and Annalise, is available in a box set at Amazon for $5.98

Pamela Fagan Hutchins writes award-winning and bestselling romantic mysteries and hilarious nonfiction, and moonlights as a workplace investigator and employment attorney. She is passionate about great writing, smart authorpreneurship, and her two household hunks, husband Eric and one-eyed Boston terrier Petey. She also leaps medium-tall buildings in a single bound, if she gets a good running start.

I hope you will try these recommended books and remember to order Thicker Than Water (Brands Crossing Series Book 1) during the March 13-17 free KDP promotion.
