New Year’s Eve Edition–Free Kindle Book!

Happy New Year Everyone!

I’m a gal of few words right now --- I had an awesome day teaching at Fabric Fanatics, and we do it again tomorrow.  We enjoyed a terrific family dinner, all 9 of us, at Babe’s in Garland….and just returned to our hotel.

It’s only just past 9pm but I bet it won’t be much more than another hour before I am sound asleep, New Year’s Eve or not…. so I’m posting this, and crawling into jammies and into bed ---so much for staying up to ring in the new year --- I’ll do it from dreamland!

Dead Angler by Victoria Houston is free today from the Amazon Kindle store, and has received an average user rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 16 customer reviews. 

You can also get the free ebook from Barnes & Noble.
Category: Mystery
Book Description:
Retired dentist Paul Osborne hasn’t fly fished since his wife died. He hasn’t had a woman tell him what to do since then either.
But in the company of Lewellyn Ferris, he’s relearning both. And when he and his lady instructor find a well-dressed body floating in the moonlight, Paul adds deputy to his list of experiences…Whether the death is accidental — or accidentally on purpose — Lewellyn is determined to rell in the truth.
She enlists Pail and his walleye-expert buddy, Ray, to help her get to the bottom of the murky mystery. Whoever thought small-town retirement could be this dangerous?
Double check before clicking that it’s still free!

And one last thing --

On the last night of 2011, and into the first day of 2012 – I want to wish you the following --

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art or love or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it. Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”-- Neil Gaiman

Much love from Texas--

  2. Happy New Year to you and yours, Bonnie. My brother lives near Garland and I even thought last summer about signing up for your workshops in Texas, but I got to see you in Kansas!! Loving the mystery -- my first -- hope you are already thinking up a wonderful new quilt for later in 2012! Of course, I'm sure you have nothing else to do!!!

    P.S. Google/Blogger loves me again... temporarily, I'm sure... :>)

    Your taste in books is often the same as mine! As I don't have a Kindle though sometimes it is hit or miss if I can get the book free - your readers should also check the Sony and Kobo sites (if they don't have a kindle) as sometimes the books are free there. Sometimes not! This particular book is free at the Sony Reader store right now, but is something like $7.00 or so at the Kobo store.

    all the best to you and yours for the New Year!

  5. Dear Bonnie,

  6. What a wonderful quote - thanks for sharing!

  7. Happy New Year to you and yours, Bonnie! Hope 2012 is a fabulous one. I will continue to learn new things and share the love of quilting, just as you do. Wishing you all the best in 2012.
