Deals, steals, and news from author Michelle Isenhoff.

I'm sending today's newsletter with a heavy heart. Last week brought about a drastic change in my writing "staff." Bailey was my longtime friend, companion, and foot-warmer during the lonely process of writing. She was diagnosed with cancer at age 5 but thrived for another 7 years on three legs. The past two years, a pair of wheels allowed us to continue our brainstorm walks as usual. Unfortunately, her cancer returned this past spring.

We enjoyed a fantastic summer of lasts, doing all our favorite things--last camping trips, last days at the lake, last kayak rides, last swims. A lab/golden mix, she loved the water and found it much much more forgiving on her hind leg than land, so we've always made the most of it.

In October, I noticed the cancer had spread to her belly. Within weeks, those hard lumps were popping up everywhere. We hoped to enjoy one more Thanksgiving with our old girl, but alas, she made it clear the disease was getting the best of her. We put her down quietly the day before the holiday. I miss her like crazy.

I have acquired a new intern, a 10-week-old lab/boxer mix who's helping the kids and me tremendously with grief counseling, but she's got a lot to learn as a literary assistant. General things like not chewing on my computer cord...or my rough draft...or my face. But she has a lot of enthusiasm for the job. I think she's going to work out just fine. 

Before you go, be sure to check out the books and promos featured below. They're always free or bargain priced. I generally bounce between speculative and historical fiction (the main genres I write in), and sometimes some fantasy, middle grade, or a bit of romance, just to keep things interesting. 

Happy reading!

Would you stand up to the most murderous Tsar in history...for love?

David Fuentes

The blurb for this 99 cent read piqued my interest and tickled my funny bone. "You have much to learn before the Grim Reaper comes-a-calling, so read on!"

This is a collection of fascinating facts, insights and stories into the mystical and magical world of Egyptian Mythology. From The Eye of Ra to Mummification; you will no doubt find something juicy to sink your teeth into. Just be careful where you tread, the whole place is surrounded by booby traps set to go off should you stray from the pages of this book. Your only hope for salvation is waiting for you at the end but no short cuts may be taken lest you be cursed for all of eternity! Good luck.
