Christine’s Books

Did you know that traditionally published authors often see less than 10% of book sales come back to them? Just 10% of revenue, while the other 90% is gobbled up by others making a living off of an author’s creativity and vision!

That’s one of the reasons I chose to be an Indie author. It means more work on my end. It means not just writing a book, but handling the book cover design (even when I outsource it, I still have to pay someone to help create my vision), and all of the sundry details that come with publishing and marketing your book.

And still there are costs. Amazon takes as much as 55% of the sale of each book, more if you count any advertising I pay for.

I encourage you to purchase your books directly from me, but I totally understand if you choose to use Amazon or another ebook bookseller. Below, you will find links that will connect you to the platform of your choice.

No matter what you choose, I get paid for my storytelling. It’s a win-win!

The most important thing? That you enjoy the words I have written.

Happy reading!

Part memoir, part current affairs, part argument for legalization – The War on Drugs is a MUST READ for those who believe that the war on drugs only happens to “those people” in “that part of town.”

Written from the point of view of a wife and mother, The War On Drugs: An Old Wives’ Tale examines the pros and cons of marijuana prohibition, drug diversion programs, and challenges the reader to define the nature of addiction and other pre-conceived notions.

Early reviews have included:

“Written with the humor of hindsight, yet the abject horror of getting caught in the cross fire of the so-called War On Drugs comes through with crystal clarity. For anyone that has any doubt about the truth of the matter, it becomes abundantly clear that the war on drugs is really a war on people, – good wholesome people that care for their children and make a positive contribution to their community. This is a must read. The War on Drug’s: An Old Wives’ Tale lays bare the absurdity of Marijuana Prohibition, the lies and injustice of our Legal System, and the unscientific, unethical nature of ‘The Recovery Industry.’ Read it. Believe it. And be warned.”

“I live in the county this book takes place in. I drive by the courthouse mentioned often. I never knew anything like this was going on in my area. It was devastating to read, but devastating in the way we need to be devastated in order for our nation to see progress. I appreciated the ability to step inside a real family going through this. That personal connection made the book feel relatable, and it was easy, as a fellow mother, to picture myself living this nightmare if my life had gone a different direction. The day by day format of the book works well for demonstrating the struggle as a daily battle rather than one big event. It was hundreds of bad events. Lots of bad policies, lots of injustice, lots of anger and fear. I highly recommend this to those who think drugs are something only found in ‘that part of town’ or that all those involved are ‘that sort of people.’ It’s simply not true.”
