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.

Coming Soon…this is not a chick flick

A new, proper, post is on its way shortly – I just finished watching Grand Hotel for the Best Picture Project – but until then I thought I’d share one of the things that’s distracted me a little bit.

As any loyal reader knows from the advertisement along the right side of the front page of this blog, I wrote a novel called Girl Band, which is currently available for purchase at Amazon.com and Createspace.com.

Recently I’ve neared completion on the followup to this novel, a quasi-sequel called this is not a chick flick.  You can watch the trailer for this novel below and I’ll be sure to keep you posted on the release of this novel as well.

If the video below doesn’t want to work just follow this link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Bll9Obqw4Q.
