In case you haven't heard, March 4-10, 2012 is read an e-book week. If you live in Canada, it's even better because they have devoted the entire month of March to reading e-books. Wow! That's a lot of reading.

Every year, Smashwords gets in on the read-an-e-book-week-fun by allowing authors to discount their books for 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% off. I did some quick math on that last one and it turns out that means the book is free if it is 100% off. Go figure.

Last year, I was thrilled to be a part of the week by offering the few books I had at a discount. This year though is a lot more fun because I have a lot of e-books. This allows me to offer all kinds of crazy discounts for you to take advantage of. Even if one book doesn't capture your interest or your wallet's interest, another one might.

Listed below are all the books I'm discounting on Smashwords during Read an E-Book Week. They are listed in order of lowest to highest discount. If you click the title, it will take you to the product page for the book on Smashwords. Also, Fram Gage and The Infinite Ability goes multi-platform on March 8, 2012. When it does, I will add it to the list below. Fram Gage and The Infinite Ability is now available on Smashwords for 50% off during the promotion.

Please note that you will need to use the coupon code listed below in order to receive the discount!

Unspoken Stories Discounted August 18-23, 2014

Starting today and running through August 23, 2014, Unspoken Stories is being discounted off the regular price. Normally, the e-book costs $2.99. But starting today, it is only $0.99. It's best to get in on this deal early because the price will slowly go up over the days leading up until it is full price again.

A collection of five science fiction short stories that reach beyond the mind.

Includes the following stories:

Copy Bird: Bill is trapped and lonely. He breaks free of his prison and finds something he doesn't expect.

Going Home: Promises are important to keep, and Commander Patrick Murphy never wants to forget that.

Josie Dorri And The Coffee Ban: What if the government banned coffee? See what happens to Josie Dorri when they do.

The Present: Miles Gray has a good life, but doesn't realize it. Often, a trip through time is all that is needed to open up a person's eyes to how good they have it.

Running To Keep Her: Neil is obsessed with exercise and eating right, bu…

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
