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.

On Sale Now – The Piano

The Piano Cover AlternateHey guys, this story originally appeared in my collection Special Editions as a short story.  Well, I enjoyed the main character so much I decided to bust him out on his own and follow him up.  Very soon a second story in the series will appear, so keep your eyes open for that.

In the meantime, if you want to read the story but are unhappy with the price of the single story – $0.99 – I suggest buying the previous collection for the Kindle, which was also $0.99, because it will get you not only The Piano,  but three other stories as well.  As a bonus in that Kindle Edition you’ll get the first chapter of my novel, Peck: A  Book.   Can we say cross-promotion?

Or, if you don’t want to pay for anything, look for The Piano to go perma-free sometime in early March.  I’ll keep you posted on that.

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.

Goliath – On Sale Now! (UPDATED)(UPDATED)

Series comprising Silhouettes of my faceAs always, you can tell that I’m working on other projects simply by looking at the lag between regular posts here and over the past few months my loyal readers should have noted an increasing lag between posts.  This was because I was putting the finishing touches on my new book, Goliath.  And now, it’s finally available for the Kindle.

Here’s the blurb:

“Flora Lichtman had it all – the boyfriend, a job with the storied law firm of Bart, Grabek & Morse and upward mobility.  But when hard times threaten to shutter the firm, everything turns upside-down.

“Salvation comes in the form Jack Jarvis, the notorious schmoozer and rainmaker, who promises to turn it all right-side-up.  But Jarvis is also a prima donna and when Flora finds herself assigned to ‘mind’ him, she sees firsthand the fool’s errand this stroke of genius can be.

“Goliath might not be fit for polite society, but it’s never less-than entertaining.”

For the moment, the book is available solely for the Kindle at a low-low price of $2.99.  And seriously, how cheap is that for a book I spent six months or more working on?  Printed and Nook versions will follow.

(UPDATE) Nook version is now available here, also for the low-low $2.99 price point

(UPDATE) Printed version is available now from Createspace for only $9.75 – if you buy it there, I get more money, not some corporate power.  If you have to have it on Amazon, you can always check my store when it pops up there.

And, in the even you don’t want Goliath, try something else I’ve written – you can find it all here.

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 Dierct Publishing Results 4.0

So, I decided to do another free promo period through the Amazon Kindle Direct Program for my young adult novel, Girl Band.  It’d previously been free several months ago and did all right, with my main advertising being through my friends Facebook.    Because it’d already been through the promo period once before, I had no real intentions of getting a big boost out of another one, or of generating any sales for my other books.  Instead, I planned to use this promo period to do a multi-stage advertising process, to gauge where the sales were coming from.  Of course, any results I got would obviously be tempered by the fact that Girl Band was already free once before and so a number of potential buyers would already be out.  On the other hand, there were lessons to still be learned, and I was not afraid to learn them.

Kindle Direct Publishing Results 3.0

 So, loyal readers – and other people who came to this site simply because there is a post or two buried in the archive containing the word ‘nudity’ – by now you probably know I’ve gotten slightly sidetracked from my regular posts in the Best Picture Project in trying to figure out the quirks of Kindle Direct Publishing platform, specifically the Select program and how to make it a success. Obviously, I’m apologetic over that and promise I’m working to get a new post going, but you’ll have to humor me while I chase down other interests.

Anyway, my first go-round with the KDP Select was a few months ago, when I enrolled my first novel, Girl Band, a little young-adult thing I really happen to enjoy. Taking a chance I made it free for two days, made a single posting on Kindle Boards to announce it, and managed to move somewhere around 250 books. I thought that was pretty good, considering the general lack of promotion. Obviously, I would have preferred more than that, but oh well. Continue reading
