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 Release – Parenthood – A Paul Angstrom Story

finger1Just a quick little heads up that another story in the ongoing Paul Angstrom series is out.  Because I’m about knee-deep in starting one project, and shoulder deep in trying to finish another, it might be some time before another of these arrives.

In the meantime, don’t be afraid of the Facebook page.

Now Available – Vacancy – The Paul Angstrom Stories #2

CoverAs you all may or may not know, I busted one of my stories out recently – The Piano – and let it stand on it’s own, largely because I had a follow up coming about the same character.  Well, that follow up is here.  It’s called Vacancy and can be had on the Kindle for the low-low price of $0.99.  But it now.

But, if that’s not your cup of tea, buy something else – it’s all right here.

Girl Band – Now on Smashwords

Cover BetterHey, I know nobody get’s tired of me flogging my own work here so, why not do it again.  Even though Girl Band is already out at Amazon, in Kindle and paperback versions (don’t pay attention to what the cover of the paperback looks like – it will look like the cover of the Kindle version, but for some reason, Amazon refuses to update it) you can now get all your other reading platforms met by Smashwords.  So, if you’ve been a regular reader here and hadn’t bought yet because you wanted to read on your non-Kindle device – such as your iPad, Nook, Sony Reader, Kobo, and the rest – now you can.

Get Girl Band now – still only $1.99.  And don’t be afraid to buy something else from me.  I never say no to a sale.

Imminent Release – The Lake House (UPDATED AGAIN)

I’m sure many of my regular readers are wondering what’s happened the last few weeks, with the posts sort of petering to a halt here – esepcially given there was a stretch where it seemed I was posting all the time.  Well, never fear, loyal readers, I did not fall off a cliff.  Or drop dead from some other malady.  No, rather, my real job kept butting in and taking my time away.  My less-real job also kept butting in, with at least three projects in various states of development.  One is ready to enter the home stretch, one is in the home stretch, and one is finally done.

The nearing the home stretch project is a young adult novel I’ve been working on.  It’s called Skinny On The Inside, is a comedy, and as soon as I have more to share, I will.

The in the home stretch is my novel, Goliath.  Many of you have probably heard me talk about that here before – in the previous few blog posts – and once I get through the copy editing phase in the next few weeks, it should be ready.

Finally complete is the novella that kind of just jumped in and took over, The Lake House.  It is just about to go IS live on Amazon right now, for the Kindle, and when it does, I’ll give you the go-ahead to buy.  Until then, gaze at the cover at left and tell yourself it’s not such a big deal to pay $1.99 for a novella – in this case, about a third of the length of a standard novel – because that’s what you’re going to do.  In the next few days or so, it’ll also be available in paperback.  The paperback version is available now, for a low, low price of $5.75.  If you’re more of a fan of Createspace than Amazon – and the fact that more of the money goes into my pocket through Createspace, and not Amazons – get it here.  Don’t be afraid – buy it!

If you like, you can also visit the Amazon Author page and buy from my other works.  Or you can go to B&N for my limited selection of titles available for the Nook.

Happy Buying!

Kindle Direct Publishing Results

So, you all should know that last week I gave away Kindle copies of my book, While You Were Here, for free.  I had previously done the same thing a little over a month ago for my YA novel, Girl Band – this was before the cover changed.  Anyway, thought everybody would like to know that during that time I managed to give away a total of 386 copies through the following stores:

Amazon US – 369

Amazon UK – 15

Amazon DE – 2 Continue reading
