12-year-old Bella of Arezzo has a knack for music, but she can’t figure out the strange music in her dead papa’s book.

When an old enemy gets his hands on the book, Bella’s determined to do anything to get it back.

But if she does what the new owner wants, Mamma will pay the ultimate price and Bella will land in an orphanage.

If she doesn’t, the rare and lovely music of THE WOUNDED BOOK won’t be the only precious thing that’s lost forever.

If you need help getting it onto your device, author Mark Dawson has some excellent tips for reading Kindle files on your laptop/desktop and a  send-to-Kindle tool.

I like library books, so I use Adobe Digital Editions to put books on my Kobo Aura. That’s probably the long way. Kobo’s directions are here.

The ePub format reads well in iBooks on my Mac, but I haven’t tried it on an iPad. If you do, let me know how it goes.


George, a burly Vermont snowplow driver, never lets anyone drive his massive truck. It’s the only way to guarantee nothing gets hit.

He’s known about loss since the third grade. His mother always asked him to let joy into his life, but he keeps himself strong with bitter radicchio, black coffee, and wine as dry as dust. After she dies, her favorite poem inspires him to try a new, carefree, persona.

When he shows up as “Jack”, his childhood sweetheart wants to show him something sweet. There’s only one catch: she wants to drive his truck.
