Floral finale presentation.

The first hard frost is the real end, and that could be weeks.

But all the flowering plants prepare their final bursts.
Many are done already, a few will hang on until their petals freeze.

The chimley rose saved the best for last.


Since staked up, a mowing near fatality.


No more blooms to come, but we’re going out grand.


Will even a frost take down the lemony mint from its summer-long peak?


But the gatekeeper of the herb garden does not care about seasons.
A hunk of cloudy quartz shares some faces with other entities
but marks the gatepost without concern for any of us.


Nor rain nor sleet nor hail — never mind, it’s quite all right.

I’ll just stand here and watch y’all wilt and wither one more time.

Quarterly roll of the dice: another five-day give-away.

This isn’t a book shelf, of course it’s not.

But can you lichen it to one,
and picture little volumes, bound in bark, printed with gall ink,
fanned around the oak tree trunk?2014-09-27_14-44-49_819

Well, if you managed that, we’re past the stressful part.

Every three months Kindle Direct Publishing allows its authors a chance
to promote books by giving them away.

And that time for me has rolled around again.

The next five days: October 3-7, 2014
Friday through Tuesday
the Kindle e-book versions of
Fit to Curve   and   Heart Attack
can be downloaded for free.

If you don’t have a Kindle Device
there is a free Kindle Ap available for your computer, your tablet, your phone
or your microwave oven (all the recent models, anyway, the ones that can charge i-phones).

So, if you’re a mystery reader
you might enjoy meeting Geoffrey and Ellen in their first two adventures.

Nothing to lose, at this price, and a world to win.

The Asheville Story                —               The Williamsburg Story

This promotion is Amazon planet wide,
not just the United States,
so come Canada, come Britain, come France,
Germany, Italy, Spain,
India, Japan, Mexico, Brazil.

Oops! And Australia. Maybe I got this in before they noticed.
Which way does the sun go?

Italy is my last untouched market,
somewhere from six to six thousand in the others.

The Ellen and Geoffrey Fletcher Mysteries are of a cozy character but written for adults.

KDT, Kindle Daylight Time, seems to track with PDT, Pacific Daylight Time,
3-4 hours from now (time of post).
