Yes, I know that Memorial Day has come and gone. However, as the child of a veteran and someone who supports those in the armed forces and honors those who have given their lives in service of their country, I wanted to do something special for the holiday. But I didn’t want readers to think I was “taking advantage” of the holiday for personal gain. So, I put A Lovely Dream and A Lovely Reality (The Michael & Seneca Duet) on sale for 99 cents – but only shared that information with my newsletter subscribers. I also offered them a giveaway that included signed paperbacks of the two novels.
Before each book returns to full price, I decided to share the sale with everyone. Why put these particular books on sale now? Michael is a Navy veteran, and he goes through many of the struggles faced by those returning to civilian life. These books highlight the sacrifices of those in the armed forces. Both Michael and Seneca suffer from PTSD for very different reasons, but these are not your typical contemporary romance (#1) or romantic suspense (#2) novels. I hope that those of you who follow Michael and Seneca’s journey truly see them as reflections of real people dealing with past and present trauma while keeping their love alive.
