Pursuit of Happiness: Freedom to Live, Love and Read

Freedom hop badge

Update: My thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented during the blog hop. And congratulations to Brandi L. who won the $15 gift card!

At this time of year, we Americans celebrate our Independence Day, the day the Founders signed the Declaration of Independence, declaring that people had inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, which to me includes the freedom to read and think as I want. Welcome to the Freedom Blog Hop!

Some years ago I spent a week in Philadelphia and got to roam the streets of the historic area and visit Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and some of the old colonial homes. It was fascinating and my head was spinning with story ideas. I wrote a Revolutionary War spy story, and I’m working on revising for reissue later this year.

The e-book revolution has given us more opportunities to read than ever. After all, we can carry a library in our smart phone or digital tablet! And thanks to e-books, we have boxed-sets of 5-12 books, all in one digital file.

Last year, I participated in the Romance Super Bundle, ten full-length romance books in one big sampler from ten different authors, all for 99 cents. We’ve since sold over 100,000 copies.

Now, we have Romance Super Bundle II: Second Chances, now at All Romance eBooks, Amazon, BN/Nook, Kobo and Smashwords. Coming soon to iBooks & other retailers.

Romance Super Bundle II: Second ChancesFeaturing NY Times, USA Today, Amazon & B&N bestselling authors!

A lonesome cowboy, a heartbroken widower, a spurned bride-to-be, an unexpected pregnancy, intrigue, murder and more…485,000 words/nearly 2000 pages of heroes and heroines in need of second chances in eleven romantic stories.

Genres: Romantic Suspense, Contemporary, Paranormal & Historical Romance

Don’t miss our big Facebook Launch Party on July 14! Stop by between 8AM & 6PM or camp out all day and chat with all the authors. Bring a cold drink and your party hat; we’ll bring the fun and the prizes!

What do you like to read? Let me know in a comment to be entered for a $15.00 Amazon gift card (US only) as it will be sent via snail mail. Must support the US Postal Service on this patriotic weekend. If you follow the blog, let me know for a second chance to win. All comments go in the pot for the monthly blog drawing for a $15.00 Starbucks e-gift card (international).

Happy Fourth of July!

  11. My mom and I did a tour of Pennsylvania for genealogy research a couple of years ago. Had a blast in Gettysburg, but didn’t make Philadelphia. But its a beautiful state with lots of history. Gia

  12. I like to read most types of romance stories, especially romantic suspense.

    There is nothing like a book bundle to give you a big bang for the buck. It’s such a good way to sample a new-to-you author’s work without breaking the bank.

    Thanks for taking part in the hop. Fingers crossed to win. Go USPS!

    Hope you had a great weekend!
