Before there was Per Bastet Publications, I self-published four ebooks: LONNIE, ME AND THE HOUND OF HELL (animals and oddities), TURTLE FEATHERS (more animals and oddities), THE KING OF CHEROKEE CREEK (stories of the abrasive Bud Blossom and his unfortunate employees), and HOT FLASHES: 2002-2009 (a collection of all my monthly micro-mini stories during those years). They’re now FREE at Smashwords.
Authors Give Back sale now underway – Thousands of Deep-Discounted eBooks!
In recent days as the global Covid-19 pandemic unfolded, several Smashwords authors reached out to our founder Mark Coker, asking him to consider running a special sale for their readers.
These authors wanted to do their part to use the power of their books to help mitigate the emotional and econonomic hardship faced by citizens of every country, many of whom are now forced to stay home and self-isolate.
Our authors asked and we listened. Now through April 20 at the Smashwords Store, thousands of Smashwords authors and publishers are offering deep discounts of 30%, 60% and even 100% on select ebooks.
It is the hope of our authors that you, your friends, and your family might find redemptive strength, comfort, and enjoyment from their books.
If you discover a new favorite author during the sale, consider showing your appreciation by purchasing and reading their other books. The 140,000 authors that publish at Smashwords come from every country and community around the globe. They’re your friends and neighbors.

I’m practicing self-isolation. Not gonna lie: social distancing is the dream of my life. Except I do miss visiting with the kids (they’re grown and gone, but did visit). Talking on the phone isn’t the same, but, to use a phrase many people unaccountably (to me) dislike: It is what it is.
Meanwhile, it won’t surprise you to hear I’ve been playing with nail polish. Here are some of my happies.
A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: What are you doing to cope? Ignoring everything? Eating ice cream? Reading? Obsessing over the news is not coping, unless it makes you feel more in control.
