#MegaSale – $.99 “The Kids Are Back in School” Sale!

If you’ve been thinking about checking out any of my books, now’s your chance to save a bundle! All eight of my eBooks are on sale from today until next Saturday, for the low, low price (yes, I actually said that!) of $.99 each. Heck, that means you can download my entire 3-book (so far) Riverbend series for a mere $2.97! The Emissary and Summer Magic are available for the same price, as well. 

The kids are back in school and fall is upon us. Time to sit back and relax with a cup of tea (or whatever it is the rest of you drink) and find out what’s happening in the spooky hills of North Carolina, or the sleepy little town of Riverbend, Florida.  Hope you’ll help me spread the word, too. Thanks!

News on #TheEmissary


“Ancient and overworked Warrior Angel hires a modern-day, recently-expired
trucker to help souls in peril. First week on the job, and he’s already in
trouble with the boss.”

Woohoo! Yesterday, I finished the draft of my upcoming novella, The Emissary. (You can read an unedited excerpt here.)

Those of you who are up to date on my Riverbend series, will know that Gabe Angelino played a small but pivotal role in Finding Hunter, as the trucker who brought Hunter Painter home to Willow, probably saving his life. He appears only in one short scene, but Willow has always believed he was a real angel.

I received so many questions about this mystery man and his possible angelic status, I decided his story needed to be told. The result is The Emissary, and I’m super excited to be moving into the editing phase, already. The feedback from my betas has been wonderful, so I’m crossing my fingers the book will be well received. A series of Emissary novellas might be in the works.

 In spite of the things that go bump in the night on Wake-Robin Ridge, this will be my first foray into what feels like Urban Fantasy, or perhaps Urban Fantasy Lite. I’m a bit nervous about that, but mostly, excited. Can’t wait to get this one out there, hopefully by October. Look for future updates right here on The Write Stuff!

I’m (Almost) Back & Update on Afternoon Tea, April 22

DeBary Hall Historic Site

Warning: Attending a four-year-old’s birthday party can be hazardous to your health. We had a wonderful time in Charleston, and I’m so glad we were able to go, but darn if I didn’t wake up on our last day with a fiery sore throat. It has progressively gotten worse, going through every step of a typical bad cold/flu bug. Today is somewhat better, but I’m spending more time in bed than vertical, so my posts will be sporadic a bit longer.

I did want to remind anyone in the central Florida area that I’ll be doing another Afternoon Tea/Luncheon at the fabulous DeBary Hall mansion, April 22, 11:30 AM to 2:30PM. For those who’d like to come, your $20 ticket includes my custom teas (named for characters in my books), a yummy lunch with even yummier desserts, a reading from my latest book, That Darkest Place, a Question & Answer session (usually a ton of laughs), and a signed copy of one of my books, your choice.  Such a deal, right?? 🙂

Reservations are required. If you are planning to join us, the deadline to register is April 17, and we need your payment by then, so that we know how many lunches to order. Checks should be made payable to Marcia Meara, and sent either directly to DeBary Hall, or to me. (See below).

You may also drop your check off at the hall, if you live nearby. Remember, we must receive these by April 17 so we can order your lunch from the caterer.

I can pretty much guarantee a fun time at this event, and I’m looking forward to seeing you there. Don’t miss out!!

Hive Magazine Features My Review of Lee Child’s Make Me

bd236d9f767752f88aa849723c414c58
Dancin’ Like a  Bulldog Puppy, Here!

Last October, I was contacted by Vanessa Burton of the soon-to-be-launched eMag, Hive. She asked if I’d be interested in contributing my Bookin’ It review of Lee Child’s latest Jack Reacher book, Make Me, saying she really loved my writing style. I was flattered, said sure, and just remembered today to go looking for it. And sure enough, there it was, on Hive’s Culture page. (Me? Culture? *Snort*)

Seeing my review in the mag was a bright spot on this gray morning, so I thought I’d share it with you.  Here’s a screen cap for a quick look, but you might also enjoy checking out the mag, too.  Hive

Ain’t Life surprising at times?

NOTE: In no way am I advocating writing magazine reviews/articles on a regular basis, without being paid for them. This was a one-time thing for me, and I enjoyed the “reprint” of something I’d already written, but I believe writers should be paid for their work, even their reviews, with only rare exceptions.
