A nostalgic vignette, PURE TRASH will whisk you into an era and place where many struggled to survive the grip of poverty. This short novella is filled with adventure, and the fun of boys being boys–riding bikes, collecting bottles for penny candy, and running into trouble…and prejudice.

“Enjoy this short read but when you are finished, I highly recommend purchasing DOG BONE SOUP. It’s a gem of a book that will leave a lasting impression with its memorable characters, heart and story line. Don’t miss it!” ~ Mae Clair, author

  1. I’m considering making my ebook free for a limited time. Do you find this sort of promotion works?

    • Hi, Jacqui. Generally every three month, I run FREE promos for PURE TRASH (the short story prequel to my novel DOG BONE SOUP. It gives new readers the opportunity to check out one of my books for free and usually results in new reviews and followers as well. For my other books, I run 99c promos the following months in succession. I plan to continue this strategy and suggest it’s definitely worth a try. My books are on Amazon’s KDP, so it’s relatively easy to set up the promos. The work is in getting the ‘word’ out during the promo, especially to new perspective readers. Cheers and well-wishes! xo
