Great Summer Read! Last Chance at only 99 cents!

You have another two days – until June 3 – to great your super cheap copy of “A Love Story for a Nation.”  Reviewers have called it:

“Heartfelt” “Destined to be a Classic” “Stunning” “Clever” “Wonderful”

Grab it on Amazon!

I’ll put two different blurbs below to give you a taste of what it’s about. But for 99 cents, you can’t go wrong if you love to read.

Blurb 1: You may burn an author’s books. You may strip his life of everyone he loves. But the writer remains. And soon enough, a new story will emerge where desolation once exists. 

“A Love Story for a Nation” chronicles the explosive and heart-warming journey of former writer Gerald Sanpatri, living a marginalized existence under a brutal dictatorship. After losing everything he once loved, he takes up his pen one last time, and dares to think the unimaginable. Part love story, part fantasy, “A Love Story for a Nation” is a modern day tall-tale with a timeless message of courage.

Blurb 2: As nightly raids burn the capital city, the mundane existence of Gerald Sanpatri takes a dramatic shift when Rosia walks into his life bringing laughter and unexpected love. She inspires the ex-writer to once again take up his pen and write the impossible: a love story for an entire nation. A Love Story for a Nation chronicles the explosive and heart-warming journey of one country’s brush with history through the eyes of a courageous man who dared to stand up, smile, and think the unimaginable.

The stories haunt Margaret every waking moment, but they are anything but random. A fractured view Michael Cheevers’ red hat through a discreetly cracked door sends her off on adventure. A glimpse of the Johnson twins from apartment 2D transports her mind to the lonely hill on a Midwestern prairie in 1887. The regular letters from Reverend Davies bring her to the brink of exhaustion as she stares intensely into the heart of war, deep in the jungle of Vietnam.

Margaret is not insane, at least not in a clinical sense. She’s like a midnight raccoon, painfully aware of her surroundings, gleaning crumbs of information at every turn. Her eyes peer incessantly in the night, stealing glances of the neighbors through partially opened doors. But the tales she weaves were not meant to merely hold empty court to the receptive dead air of her apartment. Her stories were meant to embolden the lives of the inhabitants of that drab apartment block because her story is also their story–and everything would be different if they could only hear the prophetic words of the rambling recluse.

On Sale: December 25 – December 31, my debut novel, Beauty Rising, only $0.99 on Kindle. 4.4 stars with 84 reviews on Amazon.

 

Beauty Rising Mark W Sasse“My heart sank. I dumped my father’s ashes in the heart of communist Vietnam – over a thousand miles from the death of his comrades – over a thousand miles from the smile of that girl. How could I have been so stupid?”

Only the bumbling, overweight, thirtyish, stay-at-home Martin Kinney could have mistakenly flubbed his dying father’s request with such gusto. This thousand mile mistake awakens the ghosts of long-held family secrets and puts Martin on a fateful course with an unlikely romantic interest – a young, beautiful, yet troubled Vietnamese woman named My Phuong.

With its cross-cultural setting and unlikely romance, the 61,000 word novel Beauty Rising creates a powerful, unique voice in today’s literature. In a swift-moving, dialogue-driven prose which is funny, honest, tragic and unpredictable, Beauty Rising explores the depths of culture, family, and love as the Vietnam War, a generation removed, continues to hang on the periphery of society, cursing families and causing destruction.
