(A note on Daily Deals: All prices current at the time of posting and subject to change. Most items marked Daily Deals are good for only the day posted.

Many large promotions have discount pricing that is set by the publisher. This usually means that titles can be found at a discount price across most platforms (with iTunes sometimes being the exception). If you have a favorite retailer you like to patronize, check the title on that website. There is a good chance that they will be matching the sale price.)


Daily Links are interesting links I discover as I go about my online day. The frequency and number of links posted depend upon the daily news. I also post other, different links of interest on Twitter, Facebook, and on the Google Plus eBook Evangelist Page.

Writers, agents help cats in Pens for Paws auctions

pensforpawsI just realized that the annual Pens for Paws auction has already started!

If you are not familiar with Pens for Paws, it is online auction that raises funds for Fat Kitty City. Fat Kitty is a no-kill,cage-free sanctuary for cats (and some dogs too) located in California. Items are donated by writers, artists and agents and publishers to support our four-legged friends.

The auction is managed by author Angelica R. Jackson, who is herself a volunteer at the sanctuary.

The types of items up for auction vary, but include query and manuscript critiques from authors and agents, ARCs, jewelry and hand-crafted items. Just a few things from among this year’s items:

  • Arcs selected by Suzie Townsend of New Leaf Literary Agency
  • A  critique of your query, plus your first ten pages by Jessica Watterson of Sandra Dijkstra
  • Signed copies of books by Marie Lu
  • A watercolor portrait of your pet from a photo
  • A hand-crafted quilt

You can also make a donation to help support the sanctuary. Food and litter are an ongoing need!
