A novella of loyalty and survival-in which three soldiers must survive active duty before they can find their true loves in the town of Snowberry Creek, Washington…

Best friends Nick, Spence, and Leif are counting down the last days of their third deployment as members of the U.S. Army, and their first in Afghanistan. But when one of them receives heartbreaking news from home, their camaraderie will be tested both under fire and under the strain of nearly unbearable emotional pain.

Then, while on patrol in a dangerous sector, the strangest thing happens-a stray dog appears from nowhere, alerting them to a coming ambush, and saves their lives. And as the three soldiers struggle to rescue the pooch from the firefight, each of the friends finds a little lost piece of himself-and a part of themselves they need to carry home…

I’m so excited to share the news that Scrivener Absolute Beginner’s Guide has been released by Que Publishing. This book has been a labor of love for me. I’ve been using Scrivener for years, and it’s transformed my writing process. I hope the instructions, tips, and ideas in this book help you make Scrivener an integral part of your writer’s toolbox, as well.

There’s so much to say about Scrivener, there was no way to include absolutely everything in a book of this size. In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting additional tricks and tips to get the most out of Scrivener. If there’s anything you’d like to see explained that wasn’t covered in the book, please let me know.

Note from Jane: I actually use this program for my legal writing because of the ability to include research and write in sections.  This is such a neat giveaway. Thanks, Jenn!

From Author S. T. Bende

ELSKER200x3001

A chance to win Elsker, the romantic New Adult Norse mythology from ST Bende, featured in USA Today and the NA Crush Tourney!

You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way. Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr. Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting. He’s an honest to goodness Norse God – an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth. Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms. Her orderly life just got very messy.

Reviewers love Elsker!
-“Action packed with a heart pounding romance!”
-“This book was nearly impossible to put down.”
-“One of my favorite books of the year.”

And look for Endre, the second book in The Elsker Saga, coming September 9th from Entranced Publishing.
