I enjoyed this fun and helpful interview with Amy L. Peterson, author of Something Furry Underfoot and From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds and her photo and rhyme-filled books for children: http://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/2013/10/05/author-interview-no-690-with-humorous-non-fiction-writer-amy-l-peterson/

Well, I haven’t done much on my novel prep work–like hardly anything. Let’s see, what can I do next to procrastinate. Hmm. I’ll run a free ebook promotion again; then I won’t have to think about doing that later, she said defensively.
Besides the three stories I added to my reprint collection, The Doorway and Other Stories, (The Trees of Home, Well Met by Water, and Carnies), there are:
Nessa stumbles into the time corridor while helping a friend.
The Doorway and Other Stories will be available free on Kindle Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28. And don’t forget the free Kindle apps: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2
Today is the last day to get my story collection as a free download from Amazon Kindle, but you can also get a free Kindle app here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2
The Doorway: Nessa stumbles into the time corridor and faces danger.
Guard Dog: Sequel to The Doorway. Nessa meets an old friend who needs her help.
Stray Cats: Cats, humans, and a mad scientist.
Pilot’s Course: What happened to change this girl’s life?
The Princess Quest : The princess needs a barbarian to help her on her quest.
When Danger Rules: Reesa came back to rescue the remaining members of her family. Now she had to avoid being killed by her cousin, who wanted the throne, and the new ruler of the planet, who didn’t want a throne, and the ones she had come to rescue…
Home Not: When Grief’s Aunt Chelsea died, his Uncle Sandro saw his chance, and Grief was at his mercy… Adventure.
What Price a Friendly Freep: Aliens and humans and spaceships.
Too Tight: Petals has a close call…
Royal Guardians: Heroine and her companions, including a temple cat, land in Florida after escaping from another dimension.
Old Rex: They killed Rex, but he came back when his human called him.
My latest e-book, The Doorway and Other Stories, will be available as a free download on Kindle June 8 & 9: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007SV1FB2
I’m happy to have some of my old stories in one place. Except for The Princess Quest, which is a humorous fantasy, and Old Rex, a ghost story, the rest of the stories are all science fiction adventures of different types, involving aliens, time travel, symbiotes, and humans searching for a home and/or family. All the stories have been published elsewhere–sometimes more than once–over the years, except for Royal Guardians. And you don’t need a Kindle! There’s a free app on the webpage.
In the meantime, Pretty Pink Planet is always free: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/93615 (SF) Lori, an agent of SOESFOL, visits Prism to track down planet pirates and rescue aliens.
And my other e-books include: Hidebound: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B005ICFOHY (SF) After Anfissa meets Ferenc, they flee to a planet where even the grass is deadly.
Hot Yellow Planet: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/94029 (SF) In this Pretty Pink Planet sequel, Lori and Chiing continue their adventures.
Remodeling: Buying and Updating a Foreclosure: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/71560 (Non-fiction) How one woman bought and remodeled a foreclosure; it didn’t even have a kitchen sink!
My short story collection, The Doorway and Other Stories, will be available as a free download for Kindle May 6 & 7 (Sunday and Monday). Remember that you don’t need a Kindle to read it! (There are apps, etc.)
My short story, Refugees in the Caves, is now a podcast: http://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/baileys-writing-tips-podcast-short-stories-ep-10/
I have the privilege of hosting Amy Peterson’s book blog tour on April 28! I enjoyed reading Amy’s book, From Zero to Four Kids in Thirty Seconds, and I’m happy to share the book and the fun.
