Happy Holidays! Buy Something!

Image result for christmas baubleAh, here we are at the time of year when the good people of the world start throwing around shitloads of money on gifts to celebrate the birth of Jesus.  Or, because we grew up in a culture that values yearly gift giving.  So if you are one of those people, but don’t quite know what to get for that special someone, maybe tried spending your hard-earned cash on something I wrote.

The Best Picture Project — Pre-Sale Now!

front-cover-01Hello, cherished readers.  As followers of this blog, you are no doubt aware of the long-running The Best Picture Project, a semi-regular series exploring every Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards from the beginning, through today.  Well, if you were wondering if there was a way you could have The Best Picture Project in book form — well, you can!  Set for release on November 17, 2017, will be The Best Picture Project.  Featuring complete re-edited content, and together for the first time ever in one place, you can pre-order the book now for the Kindle, for the low-low price of $3.99.  What a steal!  And if you’re a member of Amazon Prime or Unlimited, you won’t even have to pay that!

And wait — if you’re one who prefers their media to take physical form, there will be a paperback version available as well.  Unfortunately, that version cannot be pre-ordered, for reasons completely unknown to me.  But never fear, come November 17, 2016, you will be able to order your own copy.

Per-order now!

Hot Water Cold — Available Now…

Cover 2…sort of.

Loyal readers might have heard me mention my latest book, Hot Water Cold, at least one time already.  Well, now it’s available.  Sort of.  To get any bit of it you have to go to the Kindle Scout page and peruse the sample and nominate it for publication.  If chosen, I get paid.

You want to help me get paid, right?

If you wanted, you could go ahead and go here or here to buy my other work.

The Accidental Randian?

Ayn_Rand1I am a writer – of novels, short stories, essays, this blog, girls soccer recaps for the online version of my local paper and, occasionally, grocery lists.

To be fair, I don’t earn income as a writer – not really – which is why I’m an attorney by day.  But just because I make little money at writing[1] doesn’t mean I’m not a writer.  After all, hardly anybody makes a living as an artist of any type, so if income is the dividing line between ‘writer’ and ‘not writer,’ as opposed to metrics like ‘I write’ or ‘I don’t write’, I guess John Kennedy Toole and Emily Dickinson weren’t real writers because they earned no income from writing in their lifetime.[2] Continue reading

New Book — One Night In The Murder Bed

Murder Bed CoverHey all, sorry for the lengthy time away — I’ve been writing and working on various projects.  And, you know, working my day job.

Anyway, just so you know my time away has been for naught and I haven’t just been sitting around on my hands, here is a link to my newest book, out just over a week.  Don’t hesitate to buy — it’s a steal at $2.99.

And I promise, I will have a new post in the Best Picture Project soon — maybe within the week.

The Caretaker – A Novel – Now Available on Amazon

Well, folks, it’s finally arrived, the latest addition to my ongoing list of works: The Caretaker.  Unlike my previous writing, which tends towards the comedic or the young-adult comedic — except when it was not really comedic and could be almost tragic — this spills over into thriller category.  Did I nail the genre switch?  Absolutely I did.  Will you be disappointed if you follow me there?  You most certainly will not.  Is it $5.99?  No.  Is it worth $5.99?  Damn right it is, which makes it a real steal at $2.99.

Anyway, don’t be afraid to pop over and take a look inside — Amazon allows that sort of thing — and then plunk down your money to get the rest.  If nothing else, you’ll feel good just knowing I was happy somebody read it.

New Cover

????????????????????????????????????????

All right, so here’s the cover for my latest book.  There isn’t quite a timetable yet on a release date — still have to write a blurb and coordinate other stuff — but as always, I will let you know when I have it.

To see the evolution of the cover, you should look at the pics on my Facebook page and especially my comments on them.  It’s a little clearer why I chose this over other, abandoned ideas.

In the meantime, follow the Best Picture Project.  Or, go here and buy my other stuff — my advice, buy Goliath.  You won’t be sorry.
