Hi! Yes, before we go any further... this is me. First thing in the morning. Yes, I have no makeup on. Yes, that is my kids craft table behind me (in my conservatory). Yes, that is the sun glowing like a halo all around my head and book! LOL! No comments on sans makeup and baggy eyes, okay? Thanks. Moving on.
See that book I'm holding? See it? See it? Well, I have a gazillion of these! Hehehe! I LOVE antique books! Love them. And England just gives them away! I know, gasp! Right?
So I've been thinking and thinking what I can use as a giveaway to celebrate my upcoming year mark as an author! Wahoo! And after wracking and wracking my brain--to Kasie--i finally realized, writers/readers LOVE books. We LOVE them. And all of you guys write blogs... and read blogs Ahem... writers/readers... so you must LOVE books too, right? And hello? Who doesn't LOVE antique books? I mean really? Who doesn't? Which is why I present you with:

I am rewriting and modernizing all 6 of these for teens... if you click on the first five they'll take you to my website pages which will give you a short blurb about each book, that may jog your memory. ( I haven't started S&S yet) And yes, for all of you less fortunate, who have never read the original... a movie counts.
