Friday Kindle Direct Publishing responded to my request to make The Subway Is for Unicorns: A Postmodern, Magical Realist, Sacrilegious Comedy, Adventure, and Romance permanently free. And it is now free.
Here's the link:
I've uploaded The Subway Is for Unicorns: A Postmodern, Magical Realist, Sacrilegious Comedy, Adventure, and Romance to Kobo, Nook, and Apple, and it is available for free. It could take a while for Amazon to price match, but that's coming too.
Anyhoo, here's the links:
I recently finished a short story sequel to The Subway Is for Unicorns called "Into My Heart with Jesus."
In it, Lisa and Fred, her unicorn friend, team up to find Jesus and make things right in heaven.
Jesus recently missed his performance on Jupiter's moon and no one knows where he is. What's more, souls have been disappearing all over heaven and many of their happy endings are unraveling.
It's up to Lisa and Fred to save the day.

I just uploaded Please Understand Me to Amazon under my real name, Lisa Zoetewey. It could take a few days to update.
I'm saving the pen name for my fiction. I will be changing the poetry to my real name as well. I had two reasons for the pen name. One, I plan on publishing children's books under my real name and I don't want The Subway Is for Unicorns to be mistaken for a children's book. Two, I find The Subway Is for Unicorns kind of embarrassing and am afraid it will offend my more conservative friends and relatives, but I'm getting over that.
Not much has changed in Please Understand Me, besides adding a link to my landing page for a free mini-book. I'm giving away a mini-book called Let's Start Tapping: Using Tapping to Cope with the Daily Challenges of Living with Mental Illness to those who sign-up for my mailing list. If you're interested in receiving the book, click HERE.
If you're interested in visiting the website I have under my real name, where I keep a blog on spirituality and self-help, click HERE.
It took me a little longer than I expected, but I uploaded Please Understand Me: A Patient's Perspective on Psychosis and Its Treatment to kindle yesterday. It's available now.
Please Understand Me explores what it's like to be hospitalized involuntarily when you don't believe there's anything wrong with you. It argues that treatment by force is experienced as abuse. It observes that being labeled as "mentally ill" is destructive to the patient. It provides suggestions about how one might help patients cope with and accept treatment. It offers insights into one patient's experience of involuntary treatment, insights caregivers can use to better help their patients and loved ones.
It's $0.99 on Amazon for now. I haven't scheduled its free promo yet. I'm waiting until I get some reviews. But I will let you know when it's available for free.
