Magnificent May Reads

If you live in the northern hemisphere, are you enjoying the wonderful May weather? For the past few days where I live in Northern Ireland the sun has been shining (believe it or not!) and the temperature is just under 20 degrees celsius. I’ve been calling the beginning of this month Magnificent May.

But the weather isn’t the only reason I’ve tagged the month with this moniker. I’m participating in some great book offers and giveaways, hosted by several groups of authors, and I’m excited by the wonderful books available to readers. Let me tell you about these offers.

Historical Alexa MayFirstly, there’s the Instafreebie Historical Fiction Group Giveaway. There’s 20 diverse historical short stories and novels to choose from.

And if you haven’t already signed up for my author newsletter, you can do so and get my free short story, Friends and Foes, which is only available when you sign up for my mailing list.
