For me, this year has been filled with many ups and downs. The highlight was the birth of my grandson, Jordan. He has been a light in my life. His giggle and smile brightens my day.FullSizeRender

Unfortunately, this year I lost my mother-in-law, Marilyn, to complications with Alzheimer’s in August and my father-in-law, George,  to cancer in October. Then my mother had a stroke…

My time and energy has been directed toward my family during the last few months. With my attention on family, I really didn’t feel like I celebrated Southern Legacy the way I wanted.

In the spirit of the holiday season, I have decided to highlight Southern Legacy with another set of giveaways. I will need your help… I’m going to see what word of mouth can do for promotions…

Starting Monday, I am doing a Christmas Giveaway called Spread the Word. To enter, one only needs to spread the word… Retweet the daily tweet on any Southern Legacy book… Belle of Charleston will be $.99 for the whole month of December… repost on Facebook from Southern Legacy Facebook page…or even tell a friend.

The idea is to get the word out… Did you enjoy Southern Legacy? Let the world know!!! Get the word out.

During the next three weeks, I will be giving away signed copies of Southern Legacy print version, ebooks and a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate…and because it is Christmas, I will donate another $100 to the charity of your choice.

RT Be swept away with ‪#‎Romance‬ Belle of Charleston, Book 1 Southern Legacy ‪#‎Bargain‬! Only $.99!

Don’t forget that if you enjoy a book…any book, please leave a review. Reviews are the life blood of Indie writers! Trolls don’t have a problem leaving a review. I have been the target of trolls for years. As of late, I have had a few reviews on books I let go free that have been vindictive, mean spirited and spiteful. I know most readers ignore obvious troll reviews, but what they do is lower the ranting of the book. These reviews go against Amazon stated guidelines, but for some reason Amazon lets these reviews remain on my books. I’m not talking about legit reviews. With Belle of Charleston, I have quite a few negative reviews about it being a cliffhanger. I expected those despite leaving warnings it is a cliffhanger. The reviews I’m talking about are the ones that pock fun at me as a person and writer. So if you enjoy a book, please take the time to leave a review. Indie authors deeply appreciate your efforts!

Southern Legacy is also under Amazon’s KindleUnlimited!! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season…Spread the cheer and the Word! Have a great day!
