6 books for only 99c? What a hoot!!

Hello Book Nerds!

You might know that my “owl”-ter ego loves books so much she writes her own.

What you might not know is that one of those books, or should I say SIX of those books are on sale right now for only 99c.

“Wait,” you ask, “is it one book or six books? Book Owl, you’re making no sense, let your “owl”-ter ego handle this.”

Tammie Explains…

See, my historical fantasy novel Domna — which follows a feisty woman through the highs and lows of her battle to survive (and to find love) —  was originally released as a six-book serial, then later those six books were mashed together to create a single Complete Set.

And it’s that 600+ page set that’s on sale this week only. That’s right…you can get all six books of the serialized novel for only 99c. Since the normal retail price is $5.99, that’s a hoot-worthy deal!!

And that 99c deal isn’t just in the U.S. and it isn’t just Amazon. Assuming I’ve set up everything properly, you can nab the bargain whether you’re in Canada, Australia, the EU, the UK, whether you read on Nook, on Kindle, via Apple Books, and more.

If you’re unfamiliar with the books, there’s a little blurb and some stellar reviews below.

If you’re ready to dive into Sofia’s world, just click HERE, select your preferred retailer, and grab your copy today for only 99 cents!! (Hurry…the sale ends this Saturday)

Happy reading and have a great week!

Destiny isn’t given. It’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.

If you like the political intrigue, adventure, and love triangles of historical fiction by Philippa Gregory and Bernard Cornwell, or the mythological world-building of fantasy fiction by Madeline Miller and Simon Scarrow, you’ll love this exciting story of desire, betrayal and rivalry!!

What readers are saying….

  • “I’m loving this story!…a unique and imaginative work..”

  • “So much political intrigue, betrayal and backstabbing that I just HAD to keep on reading.”

Sofia Domna has her future planned. She will follow in her father’s footsteps and lead the Temple of Apollo. She’ll marry her childhood love, Papinias. She’ll have respect, status, and power.

But when her father bitterly forces her betrothal to a stranger and orders her from the life she’s always known, Sofia is thrown into a new world where any wrong move could mean her demise.

Thrown into a world of full of political turmoil, violent ambition, and dangerous temptation, Sofia discovers her only chance of survival is to stay one step ahead of her enemies, but in Osteria new perils lurk around every corner and plots don’t always strike down their intended victims.

As Sofia’s life moves through the trials of a forced marriage, motherhood, and yearning temptation, she learns that destiny isn’t given; it’s made by cunning, endurance, and, at times, bloodshed.

With every option having dire consequences to those closest to her, when it comes down to the choice between love and power, which will win out?

A Double Dose of Free Stories from the Book Owl’s “Owl-ter” Ego

Hello Book Nerds!

This week, my “owl”-ter ego is taking over The Book Owl blog. But don’t worry, this isn’t a hostile take over. In fact, the take over is more than welcome because its main purpose is to give you freebies to keep you reading and to keep your bookworm eating up yummy words.

So, If you could use a little break from reality, I’ve got you covered…and it won’t cost you a single cent.

From now through Saturday (6 June), you can get two of my owl-ter ego’s short stories for FREE on Amazon.

  • Space Walk is an apocalyptic sci-fi story with a side of dark humor. If you’re not squeamish about bugs, you might be after you read this!
  • Testing the Waters (which recently earned a rave review) is a real-world fantasy tale that takes you along the streets of Port Athens where the residents aren’t quite what they seem.

Again, both stories are completely free, but only for a limited time, so don’t dilly dally.

Just click the titles above or the covers below to gobble your goodies!!!

An Added Bonus…

If you happen to have already read those stories, or if you just want to stock up on some great reading material that will take you away to fantastic new worlds, be sure to browse the 100+ tales in the promo below.

Each and every book is free if you’re subscribed to Kindle Unlimited, but many of the books will be discounted during the promo period (which, despite what the graphic says, actually ends on the 15th…oops).

Happy Browsing

Happy Reading

I will hoot at you next week with a new book-filled podcast episode!!

The Book Owl’s “Owl-ter” Ego Has Big News

Hey Book Nerds,

Tammie Painter here, aka The Book Owl’s alter…oops, OWL-ter ego, and I’m taking over The Book Owl’s blog this week to bring you BOOK NEWS.

See, this week, I released the long awaited final installment of my historical fantasy series in which the Greek gods come to life as you’ve never seen them before. It’s exciting times indeed!!!

Below, you’ll find all the details about the book as well as some terrific discounts on the rest of the series in case you need to catch up. By the way, Book One of the series is currently FREE on most retailers if you’d like to give it a try.

Also, over on my own blog today, I took a little trip down memory lane and wallowed in some nostalgia over the series’ clumsy start and its blazing finish. If you’re curious about this little insight into the writing life, you can read that post HERE.

Anyway, I’ll let The Book Owl have her blog back next week when she’ll be releasing Episode 4 of the podcast and telling you about how trains and books collide….not literally of course…I hope.

Have a wonderful day full of books and reading!!!

PS – This project means a lot to me, but I only have a small voice in a very large crowd, so if you could help me get the word out by sharing this post, I’d be super grateful. Thanks :))

Alright, on to the new book, and on to the bargains…..

The Return of Odysseus takes you on a journey of mythic proportions in which allegiances are tested, relationships are challenged, and the true meaning of leadership is called into question.

The war may be over, but the fight for Osteria’s future has just begun.

With the immortality of the gods resting in the hands of the titans, all of Osteria is at risk of annihilation. As their powers fail and their allies fall, the gods must put their trust in the unlikeliest of heroes in the unlikeliest of places.

As the weakened gods limp their way toward a final battle against the titans, one man simply wants to return home from the war in Demos. But getting home may just be the toughest challenge Odysseus has ever endured.

Captured by a vengeful foe who makes the brutality of war seem like child’s play, Odysseus faces torture, indignity, and despair. His only hope proves to be a cunning sorceress, but even she has tricks that keep Odysseus’s goals impossibly out of reach.

With Odysseus’s world about to fall apart, with Osteria teetering on the edge of ruin, and with titans on the verge of supremacy, can the gods band together and intervene before it’s too late?

For both gods and mortals, it’s a race against time for survival, for love, and for Osteria.

The Return of Odysseus can now be found on my Payhip Bookstore (see coupon code below) and at most major retailers.
