Celebrate: Book Sale and Freebies


This week I'm celebrating:
My book is on sale for 99 cents!

  • The sale starts Saturday the 18th and goes until Oct 31st.  Save $5 off the regular price and get a creepy and exciting read that's perfect for Halloween!

  • I'm also celebrating some good TV: "The Strain." (Yeah, we get stuff late over here.)  I'm not a huge fan of vamps, but this series does a great twist on them, and the FX are excellent!
  • Not to forget about work - I finished Ch 11 this week. Yay!

Anyone got a TV series they're loving this fall?

cleemckenzie said...

Lots to celebrate, Lexa! Hope your sale is a huge success.

Vanessa Morgan said...

I've started watching The Strain, but didn't like it all that much. The characters aren't always behaving realistically and there's some bad acting in it as well :(

Tyrean Martinson said...

Congrats on your book sale! I'm having one too. :) There must be something in the air . . .

Great celebrations! I'm enjoying Haven . . . via Netflix so I'm behind. I'm all caught up on Once Upon a Time, too. I'm a fan of the fantastic in tv as well as books so those shows work for me. :)

Jeff Chapman said...

Best of luck with the Soul Cutter sale. That's a great book for Halloween.

Loni Townsend said...

Woot woot for the sale! I agree, perfect for Halloween. Good job finishing chapter 11!

Marilyn Parel said...

Hope the sale goes well. And yes, the Strain is one of my favorites.

Beth Ellyn Summer said...

yay for your book! So far this season I've been uber disappointed in TV (this from a self-proclaimed TV ADDICT)...I basically only watch shows like The Voice, and then DVR the comedies that have been hit or miss for me lately (Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, etc)

Birgit said...

Good luck on the sale-99 cents is a steal. I love Grimm and now I am into Forever-quite good and not nasty evil

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

We don't get the Strain up here. Can't say as there's any show that I love this season. I was hoping there would be. I'm finding myself going for Netflix more and more. Love those British series. Thanks for the sale! It makes my ole heart happy when I can afford more books.

S.K. Anthony said...

Yay for the sale!! Yay for chapter 11!, go Lexa!!!

Favorite TV series? hmm....I love TV so I'll keep short and say "too many" lol

Lori L MacLaughlin said...

Stephen Hayes said...

I hope your book sells a million copies.

We're finally catching up on The Sopranos over here, just about to start the final season.

JeffO said...

What a great sale! Also, congrats on finishing chapter 11! :)

TheCyborgMom said...

Yay for books on sale! I've never heard of the Strain. I'll have to check that out...I love vampire everything :)
~Katie

Leslie S. Rose said...

I'm going to pop over and grab your book. I am pathetically behind on TV. Just started Breaking Bad. Still gotta catch up on American Horror Story and Orange is the New Black. My guilty pleasure was binge watching the last season of How I Met Your Mother. Happy Halloween.

Kim Lajevardi said...

A Halloween sale is brilliant. I hope it does very well, Lex. :)

Jennifer Hawes said...

I love a creepy read and just in time for Halloween! I'm binge watching Gilmore Girls. (I did a little thing on my blog about it:) Hope your book does well.

lifepostbrainhemorrhage said...

I'll definitely pick myself up a copy and put it on my TBR list! Thank you so much for posting these specials on your blog.

It's one of the only ways I get to enjoy reading good books (and keep them) most of the time since I'm now on a limited income.

Thanks again for sharing! Hugs always. Eva

Catherine Stine said...

Good sale!
As for fall TV shows?
I'm watching Boardwalk Empire, Sleepy Hollow, Forever, old episodes of Orphan Black and Freak Show (American Horror Story).

Carol Kilgore said...

I missed getting over here last week. Going to tweet your sale now.

Julie Flanders said...

I hope your sale is a big hit! Perfect for Halloween. Will tweet about it too.

Sherry Ellis said...

Hope you sell a lot of extra copies. This is a great time for a sale for your book!

Jocelyn Rish said...

I watched a few episodes of The Strain, but I finally dropped it. It annoys me when shows have all the supposedly brilliant characters doing really dumb things to move the plot forward.

Most of the shows this season have been pretty mediocre, but I'm actually really enjoying The Flash, Jane the Virgin, and Black-ish. All three of them have brought the fun back to primetime rather than being so dour and serious.

Annie McMahon said...

I bought one! Even though I don't normally read horror. LOL I know you're a talented author. I loved reading your chapters on our writing forum, so I'm curious about that book. Good luck with the sale!
