My Gift to You

Chet-I-Free-eBookI hope you have enjoyed the holiday season thus far, rejoicing as I have in all there is to be thankful for.

I enjoyed Thanksgiving with all but one of my family. (One son is serving in the military and was unable to be with us.) It was a wonderful time and I will cherish the memory of the time we had together as a family.

Christmas eve came in with wind and snow. It was a good old fashioned Idaho blizzard. We went from bare grass to two foot drifts between midnight and noon of Christmas day. I was grateful that none of our family came home for Christmas as I would have hated for them to be out on such treacherous roads.

These final few days at the close of 2014 allow me to reflect on accomplishments as well as what remains undone. Looking ahead, 2015 remains perfect and unsullied as only the future can be.

During this week as the old year draws to a close and the new year remains in the future, I’d like to give you a gift. I’ve temporarily set the eBook version of Chet: Whispers From the Past to free at most major book sellers. I’ve timed this announcement so hopefully it will catch you at the very moment when you have a few hours free to sit by the fireplace or curl up in a blanket while you enjoy a heart warming story.

For my readers who have Apple devices, the eBook is free on the iTunes store. Go to for your free download.

For my readers with Android devices, the eBook is free from Google Play. Go to for your free download.

For my readers with Nook devices, the eBook is free from Barnes & Noble. Go to for your free download.

For my readers with Kindle devices, unfortunately Amazon has so far chosen not to match the free price set at the other book sellers. For you, I’ve set up a free Kindle version at Smashwords. Go to for your free download.

The eBook is also available from Kobo at You can use their app to read the book on most electronic devices.

I hope this heartfelt gift will make your holiday season a little warmer and more enjoyable. If you’ve already picked up a copy of Chet: Whispers From the Past, please take this opportunity to share this opportunity with your friends who like to read. I’d love to share this gift with as many people as I can over the next few weeks.

Thank you for all your support this past year, and God bless …

Chet III Off to the Editor

I have completed the initial rewrite of Chet III and I just bundled it up and sent it off to my editor. If she manages her usual amazing turnaround, I should have her corrections back in hand in early February. It is going to take a concerted push, but it looks like Chet III is back on course for release in the first half of 2015.

I know you are able to read my books far faster than I can write them, so thanks for your patience.
