How is August almost over?

I’m re-posting this since the month is almost over. :) 

I’ve been working on the final edition of the final book in the Shift Series: the STAND paperback.  And, well, it got me reflecting on this wild journey. So, until the end of August, I have made SHIFT (the first book in the series) $1.99 on Smashwords when you use this coupon code: AB67D

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/53300

I figure some of you might be looking for some summer reading, or have been bugging a friend to read it, or what have you, so feel free to reblog and/or tell a friend!  I mean, SHIFT takes place over the course of one summer, so now is really the perfect time to read it.  :)

1. Andre from Lackey’s Children of the Night. 2. Tamora Pierce 3. Very fast. 4. The Mass Market 1980s UK reissue of Douglas Adams HH guides. The one where you can put the (then) 4 covers together and make them different pictures. 5. Princess Bride. Of course.

1. John Matthew from J.R. Rain’s Black Dagger Brotherhood (I can’t help myself)
2. Cassandra Clare (I’ve already met Gail Carriger) :)

4. A Great and Terrible Beauty (also a fantastic book)
5. How I Live Now  (They left nothing out. Nothing.)

Persephone speaks:

The underworld is my temple; it is my sensual, tactile engagement
with all that is above and below, without and within; the sanctuary of
my impassioned meeting with the depths of my lover’s embraces.
I understand the complexities of wild cravings, the decisions made
from passionate abandon. I am no one’s victim or concubine.
I am sovereign, clear, the one who chose to eat those pomegranate
seeds. Do not underestimate the fierce power of a maiden’s desires.
I wished to become queen of the underworld, the vessel between the
realms, ascending the stairway between light and dark, the only place
I am unaccompanied. I own the depths of my existence—
can you say the same for yourself?
Melissa Weiss Steele, Oracle of Initiation: Rainbows in the Dark (via oncebittentwiceborn)
