Today some other homeschooled authors and I are having a one day only eBook sale. For today only, each of these books costs only 99¢ apiece on kindle. Just follow the links below for some great deals. Both my books are in it. Now's a good chance to get them for 66% off their usual price.
I haven't read every book on the list, but I can personally vouch for the awesomeness of Sarah Holman's The Destiny of One, and Adventures and Adversities and my sister loved Nicole Sager's Arcrean Conquest series. So get yourself some sale eBooks!

I was excited the other day to search my name on Barnes & Noble and find my books. They are there as eBooks only, but that means that if you have a Nook rather than a Kindle, you can buy them now. They can also be purchased for Sony eReaders. I don't know yet whether this is more worth it than Kindle Select, but, for the time being, you can buy both Across the Stars and The Experiment for whatever eReader you have. Here are the links.
For future blog plans . . . I have a hard time thinking of things to blog about. A seriously hard time. So I decided last night to write up posts on my favorite fictional characters to post when I can't think of anything better to write about. It won't just be raving on and on about my favorites. I'll try to keep it writing oriented and talk about the character development and try to learn from it.
Be forewarned, I won't shy away from spoilers. (Ugh, I can't think about that word without River Song coming to mind. It has joined "precious" and all the other words tainted by stories.) I'm not writing reviews, I'm analyzing the development of my favorite characters, sort of, anyway, and I can't do that without talking about the character's storyline. I'll try to give proper warning for major spoilers, but I can't promise you'll come away unspoiled. (Given that I actually follow through on any of this. I have yet to write a single post, though I did write a list of some of my favorite characters.)
And maybe sometimes I'll interrupt with something more spectacular to say.
My eighteenth birthday is this week, which, to be honest, is a little scary, as I will be an adult. I don't bring it up because I want everyone to tell me "Happy Birthday" or anything like that, because I never know how to respond anyhow, but because I want to make my own twist on a hobbit tradition.
As readers of The Lord of the Rings know, hobbits give gifts on their own birthday. All the ones Bilbo gave had a meaning to them, like the bookshelf to the hobbit that was good at borrowing books and worse than usual at returning them, and the silver spoons to Lobelia Sackville-Baggins. What I'm planning has a sort of meaning, though not quite like Bilbo's. It has to do with it being my 18th birthday.
Also, because I'm not rich (I haven't got any dragon treasure), I can't give away endless copies of paperback books. I've probably given away about as many as I've sold. But what I can do is give away a special coupon code for purchase of my books through CreateSpace.
Because I'm turning eighteen this week, this coupon is for 18% off. And, since a person only turns eighteen once, this coupon will only work for a limited time. It will be available until next Monday, the 28th.
Here is the 18% off code:
Remember, it's for use through CreateSpace, through the 28th.
And as a final note, Happy Birthday to anyone else who has a birthday this week, and for everyone else, "A very merry unbirthday to you!"
If you've been wanting to read Across the Stars or The Experiment, but haven't gotten it yet, you're in luck. This week only, from today until Friday, both books are free on Kindle. Completely free with no strings attached. (Though if you would like to leave a review, I won't complain.)
Tell all your friends about this free offer. After all, it doesn't cost anything except a few seconds of your time. If you don't have a Kindle, you can get a free Kindle app from Amazon for your computer, iPhone, or other device. So head on over to Amazon and download these books for free.

Starting November 29th, I will be having a Christmas sale on my books. The Kindle books will be on sale for $0.99 apiece until New Years, with possibly a few days where it is offered for free. For the paperbacks I will have various sales running through New Years. Stay tuned for more details.
Happy Thanksgiving, and Merry Christmas!
I have several announcements to make today. First of all, I was interviewed on the Homeschool Authors blog this morning. You can find the interview here. I'm giving away a copy of Across the Stars along with the interview, so be sure to enter while you're over at Homeschool Authors.
Second, I have made available an excerpt from The Experiment. You can now read the first four chapters for free . . . before the book even comes out. Here's the PDF of the first four chapters:
Finally, I have decided to have a giveaway contest to celebrate the release of The Experiment. It will start October 1st, and so I won't provide all the details until then. However, the basic idea for the contest is this: I will post questions about The Experiment, the answers to which can be found in various places on my website, and those who desire to enter will email me their answers for a chance to win a copy of The Experiment. More details will come later, but for now, I would really appreciate it if you would spread the word to your friends.
Look for The Experiment at the beginning of October!
Zachary Hemmingway is one of the bad guys and a good friend of Andrew Walker. He is only in two different scenes in Across the Stars, but I think if I write a sequel about Hanna and Sam he will figure greatly in it.
I don’t know a whole lot about Zachary, just what Felix says about him: “He is a friend of my father’s. The most devious, evil, deceitful scumbag I ever laid eyes on.” If you need someone to do a lowdown, deceitful job, Zachary Hemmingway is your man. The bad guys needed such a man, and so Zachary came into being.
Now I come to the end of this blog series. It has been an interesting experience and has brought back many memories of writing Across the Stars. I hope you’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. Soon I’ll probably start blogging about my next book, The Experiment. As much as I like Across the Stars, I like this one even better. I also hope to write more about American History, which I love and want badly to share. God Bless America!!
Whenever Sara Watson is scared, she quotes Psalm 23:
“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to rest in green pastures and leadeth me by the still waters. He restoreth my soul and leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his Name’s sake. Yea, though I should walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me: thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou dost prepare a table before me in the sight of my adversaries. Thou dost anoint mine head with oil, and my cup runneth over. Doubtless kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall remain a long season in the house of the Lord.”
Sara’s constant quoting of these verses indicates that in time of need, Sara turns to God. This is true of the other main good characters, but it is most prominent in Sara.
Another reference to this passage comes in one of the chapter names. My chapter name is a twist of a chapter name in Little Women by Louisa May Alcott which comes from Psalm 23. The chapter from Little Women is “The Valley of the Shadow,” the chapter from Across the Stars is “A Brush with Shadows.” If you are familiar with Little Women, you may be able to guess in general what the chapter in Across the Stars is about. Strangely enough for my writing style, this chapter was one I had foreseen practically from the beginning. And though I had some difficulties while writing it, Sara’s habit of turning to God in times of need is what showed through and propelled it forward.
I've moved my blog over to Blogger. You can find all the same content you can here plus much more at www.morganhuneke.blogspot.com
I am a 19 year old home-school graduate and a Christian children's book author. I'm involved in politics, and I play the violin. I make a lot of my own clothes and I love taking care of children. I generally blog about my books, but I also have an indefinitely running series on my favorite fictional characters. My friends' very awesome books seem to pop up around here quite often. I rarely post reviews here anymore, but my sisters and I regularly review books and movies at ShireReviews.blogspot.com I hope you enjoy your time here on my blog!
