Exciting things are happening!

Sticks and Stones Available Free First, the Kindle version of my mystery novel, Sticks and Stones, is being offered free for a limited time only. On June 26, 27, and 28, 2015, you can go to the book's page on Amazon and download it at no cost. When you click on the link, you'll see that the author's name shows up as Bettye Paige.

That's not a mistake; it's a marketing ploy. But wait, there's more! When you download the novel, you will also get the short story titled "Prowling Wolves," which originally appeared in the anthology Indian Country Noir, which I edited, and which appears under my own name. If you enjoy the book and you'd like to leave a review after reading it, that would be much appreciated.
