Latest news!!! What a surprise it was for me to check in on my online retail sites and discover some good news about my debut novel The Bird With The Broken Wing. I regularly do this to make sure links are working and what not. Anyway, I checked in and discovered that my publisher has reduced the ebook price to $2.99 USD.
This is great news, because many ebooks are set at this price point and I've often thought that maybe this deterred buyers rather than attract them, which is the essence of selling.

Author's description of the book:
"The Bird With the Broken Wing is a tale about a guardian angel who ends up in Purgatory with the mortal she was assigned to watch over. While working on getting her mortal out of Purgatory she discovers some disturbing news about her presence there."
Things about this book you did not know, as told by the author D L Richardson:
"This was originally an idea about adult characters who die and end up in Purgatory and there they meet a soldier who has been there forever, since there always has to be someone to watch over the doorway to heaven and he's kindly let everyone else through first. It's not until he meets a woman and she discovers how long he's been there that she forces him to ascend and she'll take over the job of watching the doorway."
"I never got this story idea off the ground until I made the characters teenagers and of course tweaked a few other things, such as introducing an angel into the group."
"This was my first novel published. In some areas it is too clipped - yes, you can edit a novel to death and lose the flow. I'd like to one day put back the flow but then I also think that novels are moments in time and should be left as they are."
Official about the book stuff:
Angels may not reveal themselves to mortals...but when the mortal Rachael's watching over is hurting, how can she stay hidden in the shadows? Guardian angel Rachael becomes trapped with the mortal she's been assigned to watch over. Unable to watch him suffer, she decides the only way to free him of his inner demons is to break the rules about becoming involved, revealing her true identity, and applying divine intervention. But what choice does she have? Without her help, his soul will be trapped forever. Then a stranger appears, giving Rachael reason to wonder if his is the only soul in need of saving...
