One hundred and fifty years ago, on April 9, 1865, Lee surrendered to Grant at Appomattox Courthouse, signaling the end of the Civil War. Various Confederate forces continued making peace through May and June. The last Southern ship finally gave up in November. To remember this tragic and pivotal event in our nation’s history, I’m celebrating with a whole lineup of deals for you on all my Civil War fiction.

And finally, a hot new release for less than five bucks.
Ella Wood is a young adult romance that takes place in Charleston, South Carolina in 1860-61. The first in a trilogy, it is actually a continuation of Emily’s story, begun in The Candle Star (below), though you need not read Candle Star to enjoy this new series. Emily is now sixteen, standing at the edge of war and struggling with questions of morality, purpose, and love. Here’s the blurb:
Though she left Charleston a spoiled daughter of the South, Emily returns from her stay in the North a changed young woman. Her assumptions about slavery have been shattered, and her secret dream of attending university has blossomed into fierce ambition. As the passions sweeping North and South toward war threaten to envelop the city she loves, Emily must battle her father’s traditional expectations in her own bid for freedom. Meanwhile, the real fight may lie within her heart, which stubbornly refuses to accept that a choice for independence must be a choice against love.
