It’s Friday! If you’re like me, you want to have some good books to sit down with and enjoy the weekend. Well, never fear. My author friends have shared with me their book sales, new releases, and upcoming releases. So grab a pen and paper to jot these down. Or if you’re technological savvy, click the purchase links. 🙂



1. Sarah Norkus
Ms. Norkus has two books on sale! “Treasure of the Battersea Bluffs” is on sale for $1.99 and available to purchase on Kindle here.
Here’s a snippet of her blurb designed to have you running to the nearest book store: “In the old factory district of Petersburg, near the Appomattox River, sits a rundown Palladian Villa known as Battersea. Hidden beneath the floorboards of the east wing lies a skeleton that hasn’t been disturbed for two hundred and forty years.” (I’ve got chills…)


Her other novel, “The Secret Diary of Sarah Chamberlin” is on sale for $2.99 and available to purchase here.
And of course, I have an intriguing portion of the blurb for you: “In the year 2008, fifteen year-old Emily Grace (Em) discovers a secret hiding place under a wooden plank in the attic of an old house in Petersburg. It conceals a 150 year-old-diary belonging to Sarah Chamberlain, the previous owner of the house. Carefully turning to the last entry, Em’s interest is piqued by the mention of missing confederate gold and a murder mystery.”

Here’s a brief portion of the book blurb: “A Korean War widow’s difficult mother dies before revealing the identity of her daughter’s father and his cultural heritage. As Dee sorts through what little her mother left, she unearths puzzling clues that raise more questions: Why did Leora send money every month to the Basque Relief Agency?”
