Valentine's Day is fast approaching and, just coincidentally I'm sure, we're approaching a 3,000-hit milestone for The Celtic Rose.  I couldn't have done it without you.

As a token of my appreciation, I'm offering a free PDF download of my novella "Stupid Cupid" to commenters who leave an email address.  This quick read, set in Ireland, is the story of what happens when both Cupid and a pair of pugnacious humans invade the peaceful meadow where my faerie band from "Confessions of the Cleaning Lady" is now living.  Valentine's Day is fast approaching in my book, too, but an estranged couple intent on fisticuffs is going to make it even more of a challenge than usual for Cupid.  He may need a little help...

The cutoff date for this offer is Valentine's Day!  And here is the adorable book cover:

The prequel to this book is "Confessions of the Cleaning Lady" available at

Thanks again.  It's been great hearing from so many of you and I hope you've had fun reading my blog.



  1. What a lovely gesture, Miriam! Thank you! I'd love to own a copy of your book. (I would have visited your blog without the free gift, but I appreciate it just the same!)

    I wish you a Happy Valentine's Day and a wonderful year.


  2. What a great incentive to get me reading another of your wonderful stories, Miriam! And not a bit too soon for Valentine's Day. The Valentine decorations are already all over the stores.
    Thank you,

  3. Yay!!! Another read by Miriam. I love your voice and the way you write. Thank you for such a generous opportunity.

  4. Hi Miriam! LOVE the wallpaper pic! Makes me wish I was there instead of in the frozen tundra of southeast PA. I'm not so sure cupid is altogether stupid, per se, but he sure doesn't make sense to *me* sometimes. Congrats on the book and the great blog!

  5. Thanks, Carla. Oh, I would give anything to be in Ireland right now. I'd give anything to be there any time, actually.

  6. Hi Miriam~

    What a beautiful blog. I'd love to get a copy of your new book.

  7. What a wonderful gift to your bloggers Miriam! I would love to read Stupid Cupid! Thanks so much for the opportunity!!


  8. Ah, Miriam. Happy Valentine's Day to you as well. I want to be on the bluff featured on your blog home page. I want to be in Scotland and Ireland. sometimes the fascination is more than I can bear.

    I am looking forward to your loving and lovely gift.


  9. Miriam--I transferred the PDF of STUPID CUPID to my Kindle and finished reading the story last night. It was wonderful! You're an excellent writer and your Celtic voice sounds so authentic I was instantly transported to Ireland. Great job! I'm off to your publisher's website to buy another of your books. Best wishes!


  10. Thank you, Adele! Think I can guess which one! I'm delighted to know those PDF's convert so easily to Kindle. Anyone who doesn't know how to do that is welcome to ask and we'll give them the information on the blog. My Celtic voice, huh? Must be all those genes clamoring to get out.

  11. What a cute idea Miriam! The book sounds wonderful and I can't wait to read it. Good luck in your sales with the other book!

    You have my address already. Thanks!

  12. Great Idea Miriam! LOL I love the title. It was a great song too. I love Connie Francis version

    See here. :-)

  13. Lizzie, do you know I had forgotten that song?! Great comment!!!
