HEMINGWAYS' ATTIC (surviving as a writer), by William Elliott Hazelgrove. (Still free?)

Thoughts on writing from William Elliott Hazelgrove, author of five novels (Ripples, Tobacco Sticks, Mica Highways, Rocket Man and the Pitcher.) His books have received starred reviews in Publisher Weekly, Book of the Month Selections, Junior Library Guild Selections, and ALA Editors Choice Awards. He was the Ernest Hemingway Writer in Residence where he wrote in the attic of Ernest Hemingway's birthplace.

A survival guide for writers from bestselling novelist William Elliot Hazelgrove. The novelist in Ernest Hemingways' attic gives his philosophy and tips for surviving as a writer in America. 

Getting your first novel published is one thing, but there are no classes for how to survive as a writer. Publishing does not offer much, but the school of hard knocks. Writers mostly keep to themselves and flame out or end up in some gutter without telling anyone of their journey. 

There are lots of books on how to get published and make a bestseller and how to sell books. But to survive as a writer in a society that doesn't recognize writing as a viable way of life is very tricky. Most will not undertake it. Many will wait until retirement and then write their self-published novel after a creative writing class. It is all very safe and not who this book is for. This book is for the writer or the author who must survive.

The Guestbook, by Andrea Hurst. (Still 0.99?)

Save $2 today on this Kindle Countdown Deal!

"Perfect summer read! Jam-packed with hidden treasures along with a compelling story. The descriptions of the flowers, the mountains, the sky, the animals, and the FOOD were poetic and made me feel like I could actually smell and taste the foods, or feel the nature around me. I personally love Lilly's story of recovery after a bad marriage. She is strong, creative, and an inspiration to all women who have to restart their lives. I am recommending it to all of my friends." -- Amazon reviewer

EVERYONE REMEMBERS THEIR FIRST LOVE...
BUT SOMETIMES IT'S THE SECOND LOVE THAT LASTS

"Evocative and heartfelt, The Guestbook is the profound story of one woman's journey toward hope, renewal and a second chance at love on a lush Pacific Northwest island. Curl up with your favorite cup of cocoa and enjoy."
~Anjali Banerjee - author of Imaginary Men and Haunting Jasmine said about this women's fiction romance

This book weaves together the heart of Nicholas Sparks, the romance of Nora Roberts, and the charm of Debbie Macomber.

Fleeing her picture-perfect marriage among the privileged set of Brentwood and the wreckage of a failed marriage, Lily Parkins decides to move to the only place that still holds happy memories, her grandmother's old farmhouse. The lush and majestic setting of the Pacific Northwest calls to her and offers a place of refuge and perhaps renewal. Her grandmother has passed away, leaving the Madrona Island Bed & Breakfast Inn to Lily.

Left with only an old guestbook as her guide -- a curious book full of letters, recipes, and glimpses into her family history -- Lily is determined to embrace her newfound independence and recreate herself, one page at a time. With the help of the quirky island residents she has befriended, she slowly finds the strength to seek out happiness on her own terms. But as soon as she has sworn off men and is standing on her own two feet, Lily meets Ian, the alluring artist who lives next door, and her new life is suddenly thrown off course. The last thing she wants to do right now is to open her heart to another man.

Ultimately, Lily must decide if it's worth giving up her soul for security or risking everything to follow her heart in this romantic love story.

The Guestbook is the first book in the Madrona Island Trilogy. www.madronaislandbandb.com

Season Of The Harvest (Harvest Trilogy, Book 1), by Michael R. Hicks. (Still free?)

"Be ready to read late into the night on this one. Nonstop action from the get-go. Hicks is an accomplished writer -- his earlier "In Her Name " series is top notch science fiction/fantasy/romance and already a fan favorite. This new novel is an entirely different type of techno-thriller; tightly written with believable characters, fast paced, and well researched. It is a story of today and the unintended consequences that might occur when foods are genetically "engineered" and released into the environment. Enough said- no spoilers here! An excellent read. Well edited, proofed, and formatted for the Kindle. Bravo!" -- Amazon reviewer

"I was skeptical about this novel. Would I really be able to get drawn in to a story about a band of renegades trying to save the world's food supply? Well, the short answer is yes. I was completely engrossed from the very beginning. Season of the Harvest is smart and funny and wild and frightening and really, really scarily believable." - Reviewer Elizabeth Schulenburg

"This novel is a delicious treat for those who like action and adventure. It is a science fiction novel that is at once contemporary and reminiscent of the great novels that have bejeweled the genre through the years. It is a cautionary tale that will haunt the reader, and invite us all to think twice about the simple decisions we make every day." - Author Dan Moore

"Season of the Harvest was smart, entertaining, and believable. If you enjoy your Sci-fi novels and/or thrillers check this book out and then hang on to the edge of your seat, because that is where you will be perched until you hit the last page!" - Moonlit Dreams

If you enjoy stories by James Rollins, Michael Crichton, Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child, get ready to strap yourself in for a roller coaster ride of terrifying adventure...

You Are What You Eat

Secret Words (Secret Dreams Contemporary Romance 1), by Miranda P. Charles. (Still free?)

"From the first page when they meet, I was so excited to see where the book was going to take me, and I was certainly not disappointed!" -- A Tasty Read Book Reviews

"Miranda Charles does a great job creating believable, likeable characters." -- Snarky Mom Reads

When Jasmine Allen met Kane Summers in the unlikeliest of places, she wasn't expecting the swift and immediate attraction she felt for him. But Jasmine had a secret she wasn't at all comfortable sharing with anyone, least of all, the hunky guy who was literally sweeping her off her feet.

Kane Summers was a sucker for damsels in distress. When he found himself wanting to protect Jasmine Allen in more ways than one, the instant chemistry they had for each other hit him squarely in the chest. But Kane's life was complicated, and he wasn't totally free to act on the fascination he felt for her.

Kane and Jasmine were fighting a losing battle to stay away from each other. But circumstances -- and certain people -- beyond their control were very much intent on keeping them apart.
How could they find their way past secrets and malicious intents to nurture a love that, if given the chance, could last a lifetime?
