Smashwords is having a catalog sale, The Path of the Child is on sale

I am not sure if you are familiar with Smashwords, but there are so many books there in ebook format.  Tomorrow, March 5. 2017, begins a week of discounted books in all genres. A sales catalog will be made available at midnight pacific time and for a solid week, books will be discounted 25%, 50% and 75% off original price.  Many will be free for this week.

My own book, The Path of the Child, is located on page 70 of the group titled over 50,000 words and about half way down. You can click the link and find it. There is a discount code provided as it is discounted by 50% to the price of $ .99.

The Path of the Child is the story of one lonely girls’ transition as she sets out to find her own backstory. A story that has been hidden away from her by her neglectful mother. Melanie is a strong young woman that will have to make many hard decisions but always with the hope of having a life complete with happiness and joy.  The path she travels is uplifting and trying and may be more than one person can handle.  Meet Melanie and share her journey today. I write under the pseudonym of Sojourner McConnell.


Discounted to .99 March 5-11, 2017


This is a great opportunity to pick up books and find new authors.  Many authors have several books available all at these deep discounts. This event only runs until the 11th of March, then the prices revert back.  The above links will not show the participating books until midnight PST, that is 3 am Est and 8 am GMT.

Take your nest egg and pick up a few new deep discounted book and have a nice read along. With the prices as they are, it is the perfect opportunity to bulk up that “to be read pile”.

Remember that the best gift you can give an author is an honest review.  It doesn’t take a wordy post, just a few words sharing your opinion of the book.  Authors love it and it helps a new book get a second glance.

I can’t wait to go shopping. See you at Smashwords.

A-Z PE Challenge Day 5 (E)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with the letter  A going  all the way to  Z.

Today we are celebrating the Exciting letter E!

The Blog dejour is:


On this official 5th day we are going to find out about the website named Eye-Dancers. The blog is all about the book, which is a Young Adult Sci-Fi/Fantasy novel. That blog is centered on the book.  The name of the blog comes from the eBook and Paperback novel, Eye-Dancers. The book is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, and Kobo


Looks good, huh?  I like the cover. Today we are going to find out more about the  man behind the story. Please meet the  author, Michael S. Fedison. He likes to be called Mike, so from this point on, we will call him Mike. The great thing about Mike is that he is doing that very difficult task of writing a sequel right now.  Continuing the story of the 4 main characters in Eye-Dancers.

The premise of the story sounds very interesting and promotes the idea of believing in possibilities, and friendship.

But let’s get to know more about the man behind the books.  As stated, his name is Mike and his desire to write, and write well comes through so strongly in his blog. He also has a fun way of expressing his worries, doubts, and concerns over starting a new writing venture.  All writers have faced those fears and concerns. When he faces them he finds a sit-com from the fifties, or a recent dream, or even the morning greeting from a former co-worker to bring the emotions to light and address them. It is a real pleasure to read his bog entries.  It is enlighten in my own journey as a writer. It is healthy to see his beautifully sculpted blog entries that also help me over my insecurities.

Take a look at his blog, I hope you can find the little jewels like I do. Here is one example:

Even then, as a junior high student, I knew that, for me, writing was akin to breathing.  I couldn’t imagine a life without it.  But most of my stories as a kid were adventures, space explorations, without much depth or emotion.  I sensed I was arriving at a crossroads.  The way I felt lying there, the thoughts swirling in my head, the ideas and motivations abounding, I wanted so much to be able to convey it all in a story, through the power of the written word.


Enjoy your special letter day today.  Mike @Eye-Dancers . Today is all about you!


For those that may have noticed my little faux paux yesterday, I apologize. I missed that I did 2( D )days. That’s what happens when you know too many amazing D blogs. I will go with that excuse and not mention my sick dog, Arrow, or my “mental health” day yesterday.midis_crazy1


About the A-Z PE challenge.

This is a fun way to showcase blogs that you like and people that you want to know better.  Come join us on the 26 day challenge!

This challenge was created by gapawa.

He came up with the A-Z People Edition challenge and it is an awesome idea. If you want to join in the fun, then just join in.There is no set date or month. Just 26 days of your choosing.  Here is the link to the instructional blog you can visit

Here is a Quote from his blog explaining his motivation for this fun challenge.

” This is the people edition!  So on the first day you find someone who’s screen name starts with A and you check out their blog.  The idea is that you read through some of their posts, introduce yourself and give them some feedback.  Then, write your post of the day and publish it, describing who the person is and your experience finding and interacting with them, what you thought of their posts.  What you came away with.  I think it could be fun:)”
