Molly Lee – On Sale

From the author of the best-selling novel,
REDEMPTION: The Further Adventures of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer
comes MOLLY LEE.ML-AJ

MOLLY LEE by Andrew Joyce is an Historical Fiction Adventure. This book is just $0.99 until September 27th.

About the Book:

Molly is about to set off on the adventure of a lifetime . . . of two lifetimes.

It’s 1861 and the Civil War has just started. Molly is an eighteen-year-old girl living on her family’s farm in Virginia when two deserters from the Southern Cause enter her life. One of them—a twenty-four-year-old Huck Finn—ends up saving her virtue, if not her life.

Molly is so enamored with Huck, she wants to run away with him. But Huck has other plans and is gone the next morning before she awakens. Thus starts a sequence of events that leads Molly into adventure after adventure; most of them not so nice.

We follow the travails of Molly Lee, starting when she is eighteen and ending when she is fifty-six. Even then Life has one more surprise in store for her.

Excerpt:

I first saw him in the light of the setting sun. He sat straight and proud astride a chestnut mare, handsome in his grey lieutenant’s uniform. He rode into the yard following my pa who was driving the family wagon. In the back of the wagon lay the “Captain.”

Langston’s Ghost: Aftermath

Welcome to the release event for Langston’s Ghost: Aftermath by Juliette Harper. This is a short story of 25 pages that can be read in about 45 minutes. It is a companion story to the Lockwood Legacy books and the events in the plot are concurrent with those recounted in Langston’s Daughters. You can read either first as there’s no spoilers in this book. Langston’s Ghost: Aftermath is now available for .99 cents on Amazon.

About the Book:

Langston Lockwood contemplates his suicide with great care, envisioning every possible outcome of his actions. He crafts a last will and testament designed to ensure that his iron-willed control over the lives of his daughters remains intact even from the grave. But he does not count on waking up in exactly the same spot where he died, or finding his own father waiting for him. In this first installment of The Lockwood Legacy Short Story series, Langston finds out the afterlife is not what he expected and that his own role in the events still unfolding on the Rocking L ranch is not over.






About the Author:

 

Juliette Harper is the pen name used by the writing team of Patricia Pauletti and Rana K. Williamson.

As a writer, Juliette’s goal is to create strong female characters facing interesting, challenging, painful, and at times comical situations. Refusing to be bound by genre, her primary interest lies in telling good stories.

Five of Juliette’s series are currently available. The best-selling Lockwood Legacy, is a nine-book chronicle of the lives of three sisters who inherit a ranch in Central Texas following their father’s suicide. The first three novels appeared in early 2015: Langston’s Daughters, Baxter’s Draw, and Alice’s Portrait. The fourth, Mandy’s Father, in hot demand by readers, will be available in early July.
Descendants of the Rose is the first installment of the Selby Jensen Paranormal Mysteries. The second book, Lost in Room 636, will be available later this year. Selby’s business card reads “Private Investigator,” but to say the least, that downplays her real occupation where business as usual is anything but normal.
And don’t miss the hilariously funny “cozy” Study Club Mysteries, a light-hearted spin off of The Lockwood Legacy. Set in the 1960s, this series takes on the often absurd eccentricities of small town life with good-natured, droll humor. The first book, You Can’t Get Blood Out of Shag Carpet, is already listed in the Amazon store with You Can’t Put a Corpse in a Parade coming soon.
Juliette’s latest creative efforts are in the short fiction arena. Her debut “Before” series is a collection of light, sweet romance stories that can be read in less than an hour. The first installment is Before Marriage with the second, Before the Affair, to be released shortly.
Fermata: The Winter is the first in a four-novella post-apocalyptic survival series. Five years after an unknown virus divided the world into the living and the dead, four survivors stumble into a winter sanctuary. Brought together by circumstance, but bound by the will to stay alive, a concert pianist and a girl from South Boston forge a friendship and a purpose to cope with their new reality.
Juliette is planning other short stories and novellas in the coming weeks and months. These pieces are available for Kindle only and will include companion shorts to her other series as well as stand-alone works.
Pauletti, an Easterner of Italian descent, is an accomplished musician with an eye for art and design. Williamson, a Texan, worked as a journalist and university history instructor before becoming a full-time freelance writer in 2002.
