I have a never ending deal going.  It is a 6 for 1 on all of my Harlequin books.  Order 1 Harlequin and get 5 more Harlequin books free.  I have Historicals, Super Romances, American Romances, Desires, Intrigues, Intimate Moments, a couple of Flipsides, Presents, and Temptations.  I will offer this deal until the Harlequin books are gone, but it is only for the Harlequins.

I have almost 400 books on my shelf and I need to clear some space, and get some credits.  There is a smoker in my home, but it is pet free. 




I have some unpostables listed on my profile page on PBS.  They are free with any non-Harlequin book order.

It's easy, you give me a credit. I send you a book.

... well, and if you ask for a deal, tell me what you want and what you are offering and I'll usually accept it unless it's crazy ;) I usually only have a small shelf as I'll give them to local friends/family if they don't move here.

So, basically, I'm a make your own deal kind of a gal :) I'll always take a 2-for-1, but if you want more or whatever, just ask - won't hurt!

Thumbprint Mysteries.  Written for adults , but at an easier reading level.  At only 150+ pages, I found them quick, enjoyable reads.  A variety of known authors contributed to this label, mostly in sets of 3 stories

These books are coded on PBS as Children's Books, ages 9-12.  They are actually marketed as ESL material - most seem to be reading level 6 or 8, per the publishers site.

Publicity blurb: "Joan Lowery Nixon, former president of the Mystery Writers of America, has assembled 10 well-known authors to write Thumbprint Mysteries. This unique series offers quality mystery fiction for adults who want to read at their appropriate skill levels. THUMBPRINT MYSTERY AUTHORS -Richard Forrest, Alanna Knight, Ellen Godfrey, Mary Blount Christian, Joan Lowery Nixon & Kathleen Nixon Brush, Judith Andrews Green, Barbara Steiner, Patricia Matthews, Stephen F. Wilcox, and Kathleen Anne Barrett. "

3-1 until they are all gone.  (Most are 3 books is a series). 

Champagne at Risk, at the Murder,  & with a Corpse

Gory Alleluia

The Hard Time Cafe, Purgatory Prayers

Hit the Street, Without a Trace

Murder in the Shadows, on the Loose, on the Lover's Bridge

The Monster in the Loch

Murder Takes a Fast Track, The Party Boat Murders

Secret of Secco Canyon

Sign of Blood, Sign of Terror, Sign of the Beast
