Planet iPad Daily Free Book Alert, Monday, January 24: A "Sweet Seven" Bundle of Brand New Kindle Freebies! plus ... Ghost Country a novel arising out of the author's search for her Cherokee heritage (Today's Sponsor)

Psst. Over here! Please keep this on the low, but we know that Planet iPad readers cannot live by all of those brand-new business, leadership, and marketing titles alone, so we've surreptitiously slipped a brand new free contemporary romance to the top of today's freshly updated presentation of more than 200 Free Book Alert listings....

But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor

Author Dana MIchelle Burnett's ancestry runs back to the days before Columbus arrived in the New World.   Upon looking more deeply into her heritage, and with her eyes on her new daughter, Burnett created Ghost Country to help link herself and her little girl to the family's past.

Here's the set-up:

Carrying echoes of Amy Tan and Rebecca Wells, Ghost Country takes the reader into the lives of three Cherokee women and the lives of their modern day daughters.

Told in a series of vignettes that alternate from the era of the Civil Rights Movement, Woodstock, and the Vietnam War, to the present day. 

Each story carries the reader through a world where a birthday wish can make people disappear; where a child, after being told that she is nothing, can find her way back to the forgotten Cherokee traditions; and where a woman can give her daughter a treasured bit of advice thanks to a dead rock star.

From the Author:

"Ghost Country was my first fiction novel to be published. The novel features a glimpse into my own Cherokee ancestry mixed with fictional characters and compelling stories.  

"The idea for the novel sprang from the Cherokee heritage of my own family, from one generation to the next; our tie to the Cherokee has become less evident.

"With the birth of my daughter, I began to research our Cherokee lineage so that perhaps my daughter's connection could be stronger than mine was.  During my research, these characters came to mind.  Ghost Country became the result."

About the Author:

Dana Michelle Burnett spent most of her life writing short stories and sharing them with family and friends.  She was fresh out of high school when she earned a spot as a guest columnist for her local newspaper, The Tribune.  In the years that followed, her work was published in numerous commercial and literary magazines including Just Labs, Mindprints: A Literary Journal, Foliate Oak, and many more.  Her short story John Lennon and the Chicken Holocaust was included in The Best of Foliate Oak in 2006.

She took over the family's successful home decor business, and is also author of Home Decorating For The Real World.
