2018 Overlooked Ebook Gems for $1 or less on Smashwords — Ebook Week March 4-10


(These sales are valid until midnight on Saturday March 10.  I’ll be adding more titles until that time.   If you have any free/almost free titles to recommend from SW, please list it in the comments.

Fave Discoveries of 2017 (Movies, TV, Books, Music)


Ok, here’s my list of things I’ve been enthusiastic about in the year 2017.  Anything which I highlighted in red and bold are not just great stuff, but things which bowled me over and probably will bowl you over too.

Stop — Don’t Stop!
