A Sneak Peek – Mischief & Mayhem

It’s 90 degrees in my part of Oregon today. Is it hot in your part of the world? I thought I’d share something to warm your heart from the inside out. Here is the cover to my latest Christie Capps novella. It left for editing on Thursday. Because of the holiday weekend it will take longer to get it back than I had hoped but I understand a family having important plans. My goal is to have it available on Amazon/Kindle Unlimited by July 15th.

Hello from Oregon!

It has been far too long since I posted on my website. In fact, it’s been so long that I am seriously thinking about closing it down. Why? Because I forget I even have it available, I fail to promote the site on social media, and I seriously lack time. Shame on me!

Life has gotten crazy, hasn’t it? Between COVID-19 and protests, our world changed quickly. On top of this I fractured my femur down by my knee. It’s not nearly as painful as it sounds but sitting with my legs at an angle is not comfortable. Therefore, my ability to get writing done is minimal.

However, I will tell you that the story I am working on has been on my mind since before I wrote and published my first story, A Father’s Sins. I am almost 10,000 words in and love it so far. I plan it to be a full-length J Dawn King story. I have a few ideas I am kicking around for a Christie Capps short story but can’t write them either because of my leg. Frustrating!

I do have some great news. I found a journal online at Michael’s that I think you would love. It’s an 18 month reading planner that starts on July 1, 2020. There is also a “bookish” sticker pack and a sticker book that’s included. If you think you could use this to track your reading, please leave a comment below. I will do a random drawing from those who respond on June 20, 2020.

In the meantime, please take care and stay safe!

I’m Posting on FanFiction Again

Since I stopped posting my works-in-progress on fanfiction (dot) net I have had many readers ask why and when I will do so again. A particularly impassioned plea came from a reader last week that I simply could not resist. Therefore, I am posting chapters on their site. They will only stay for one week after I finish the book. Then, I will remove the story to publish on Amazon.

My First Countdown Deal

Thank you very much for your responses. The deals are scheduled as follows: (they are only for the US and UK Amazon stores – none others are available. If you do not purchase from those two stores please email me at jdawnking@gmail.com and we will see what we can work out.)

Something New!

Hello! Since I started publishing I have taken advantage of offers from Amazon to make some of my books available for free download. In the past two years the seven books I’ve discounted have been downloaded 135,247 times. For some reason giving away all of those copies tickles me.

One thing I have not done that Amazon offers is a countdown deal. I thought that since it’s back to school time, perhaps I should take advantage. I am not sure how many I can do at one time, but I’d like to offer three Christie Capps and three J Dawn King books starting August 31st (isn’t that a holiday weekend in the US?). Do you have a preference? If so, please leave a comment below.

These are some of the choices available.

Here are a few more titles I couldn’t fit in the picture.
You could choose this one, or…
Perhaps this one? Or…
Have you read this one yet? Please, let me know.

At Home in Ecuador

The past several months have seen some drastic changes in the King household. We sold our house, our vehicles, and put our stuff in storage and headed to Ecuador to live next to our daughter Jennifer and her family. Pretty drastic, huh?

My desk is now set up and (as of yesterday) we have Internet that works. Therefore, I am writing again. However, I am taking my time with this story. You might be able to imagine the hours I’m chewing on the little details as Darcy and Elizabeth plot their course. The secondary arc to this story involves the ever-wonderful Colonel Fitzwilliam. Sigh!
