Who doesn't like to save money?

It was with love and pride of ownership that I sent my women's fiction short stories out into the universe these past couple of months.  They haven't hit the big time yet, but then who has ever heard of their author?

(Hey, that's me--Tonya Thomas!)

Anyway, I know times are hard and so I've decided that in addition to offering the stories individually at 99¢ each, I decided to bundle them into a box set.  I've called it THE EDGE AND I, since all the stories are about strong women who make bad decisions--and how they rectify those mistakes.

Yes, folks -- now you can get all five of my women's fiction stories for $2.99 -- that's FIVE for the price of THREE!

Yes, you can.  And you can get them here:

Smashwords (all e reader formats)

Go on, do it now!

P.S.  Isn't that cover just lovely?

The Kindness Of Friends

Not having a wildly recognized name, I'm finding it hard to guest blog anywhere to help promote my new box set of stories when it comes out in June.

Thanks goodness I have friends who've agreed to host me, even though I'm not writing in their particular genre.

So far I've been lined up to guest blog with the Cozy Chicks, on Killer Characters, Dazed and Confused , and my best friend Ivy Bend's blog in June.

I have to admit I'm a bit discouraged, but maybe some of my friends' readers will take a chance on my stories.

I've got my fingers crossed.

Why is it still cold?

Listen up, Mother Nature -- we're nearly into June here and it's still cold in my part of the world.

We've got Memorial Day coming up, and while I know it's traditional for it to be rainy and cold and miserable, couldn't we for ONCE see the sun?

One of my best friends lives on the lake and it would be so nice to go out on their boat with a picnic. Instead, we'll probably sit in her dining room and eat our fried chicken and potato salad.

Oh well, I'll be with my two best girlfriends and their significant others and we'll have fun anyway . . . but it would be so much nicer to have that fun while wearing a sundress than bundled up in sweats.

Hopefully there'll be other sunny weekends where we can haul out the cooler, the grill, and the six of us for a leisurely boat ride and picnic. But right now, the 4th of July seems a million miles away.

Not that Anyone Asked . . .

These days I'm working on a fantasy saga.  Yes, not what I've been used to . . . but it's fun and has taken me out of my comfort zone.

However, it means I probably won't be uploading any new work for some time. 

Still, I haven't given up on my women's fiction short stories.  They haven't found a large audience yet, and I'm repackaging them in a book-like way.  They'll still only be available as e downloads, but they'll be bundled so that you have the choice of getting five stories for $2.99 instead of buying them individually for a total of $4.95.  Win-win situation, eh? 

The new collection should be ready to go on or about June 1st.  I'll keep you posted!

Meanwhile, back to a strange and alien planet where . . . oops!  No spoilers!
