Read This for a Valentine's Day Treat

NOTE: Winner of The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson is GRANNYD.Congratulations,Granny, and thanks to everyone who entered last week!

I promised I'd only post about books I could endorse for you. Today's belated "Fiction Friday" post, "Love Under the Bubble Wrap," is one I'm happy to let you know about--and just in time for Valentine's Day!

No, it's not a Valentine's Day story, but it begins with the arrival of a mysterious gift (hence, the bubble wrap). And it's fun and sweet and even romantic --perfect as a Valentine's Day gift for yourself.

According to the author, this is a novelette--short fiction, so it won't consume your whole day (or evening). Just curl up with some dark chocolate and get cozy.
Best of all? It's available for only .99 on Amazon Kindle!
You can't beat that price for a treat.

No Kindle? No Problem

Eventually, Donna will get it on Nook and Sony and other formats, but for now,
if you don't have a kindle, get the FREE Kindle App from Amazon and read it on your pc, iphone, ipad, or android.

Not Your Typical Heroine

Donna's story is one you'll really want to devour because the female leading lady isn't your typical twenty-something reedy willow who's drop-dead gorgeous. No, ladies--this is a story about YOU. This is a story about ME. That's the fun of it, too.

Here's the Amazon Blurb:
"Love Under the Bubble Wrap"- A novelette. A sweet escape for anyone wanting to discover love in everyday life. A charming, witty, engaging short story. - Mary DeMuth, author of The Muir House

"With a story aimed to encourage older marrieds (not just singles), Donna Shepherd's characters are as familiar as a best friend and yet this tale is as fresh as an unopened present. Realistic and humorous--can't wait to see more from Ms. Shepherd!" - Linore Rose Burkard, author of Before the Season Ends. (Hey, that name sounds familiar. Really.)

Product Description
"Love Under the Bubble Wrap" hits the mark for fun with a short story sure to tickle the hearts of women, married or single, young or old. Ms. Shepherd's debut romantic escape resonates with comedy, love, and enough mystery to keep the pages turning. The perfect length to read on your lunch break - or anytime!

Donna J. Shepherd is best-known for her children's books, although the members of the church she and her husband pastor might think it's for singing on Sundays, or leading women's groups. Besides writing children's books, Donna does voice-overs, and is the Co-Leader (with me) of Greater Harvest Workshops for Writers. Donna also loves to blog!
