I decided to make Revenants Abroad free through the end of the year on Smashwords. Amazon doesn't allow a price below .99 unless I put it into the KDP Select program, which I can't do right now. I'm still hoping the Multnomah County Library will pick it up, and it has to be available on… Continue reading Revenants Abroad Free through December 31
Some stories take longer to gel in my head than others. The cast and crew of Revenants Abroad was nearly effortless. Andrej in particular, who was of course the genesis of the story, appeared in my head fully-formed, ready for action. Anne-Marie took longer for me to get to know. Neko ... what can I… Continue reading Side Projects
I didn't know there was one! Today is the anniversary of the first publication of "Dracula" in 1897. In honor of that, here some links to fun Dracula-related things (sites, podcasts): http://www.bramstoker.org/novels/05dracula.html The Dracula Chronicles The Vampire Historian - World Dracula Day Mini-sode (from 2015, don't see anything more recent) The 1977 "Count Dracula"… Continue reading World Dracula Day 2016
A little Friday the 13th treat! And you don't have to be a Kindle Unlimited subscriber. If you need a different format (ePub or PDF) contact me and I can send you the file.
I gave up making New Year's resolutions years ago. Generally, it seems a week into the new year most are already forgotten. It's not that I don't have goals, but sometimes the resolutions I've made were not all that intrinsic to my interests or that important in the long term. Lose weight? Sure. Exercise more?… Continue reading 2016, We’re Counting on You
I can't believe it's been a whole month since I posted anything. I threw in the towel on NaNoWriMo again. I've been sick for a week and it sort of took the wind out of my sails. I'm about 10,000 words into a new thing, my first attempt at a YA novel. But fear not,… Continue reading November Collection
Never thought I'd see the day, but I approved the proof on CreateSpace moments ago, which means Revenants Abroad is officially available in paper through the CreateSpace store! It said it'll be 2-3 days before it's up on the main Amazon.com site, I have no idea why. It is still, and will remain, available for… Continue reading FINALLY! Revenants Abroad available in paper!
I want to sincerely thank everyone who downloaded the ebook of Revenants Abroad over the holiday weekend! I hope you will enjoy it. And the new proof copy of the paperback arrived today, and while the color is not quite as rich and bold as the electronic version for the ebook, it is lighter and… Continue reading Revenants Abroad Paper Copies SOON!
The good news is: paper copies of Revenants Abroad are back on! I finally caved and contacted my cover artist, Jason Juta, and he graciously said he'd provide me a lighter version of the cover at no charge. I love this guy so hard. I felt bad going back to ask him for yet another… Continue reading Revenants Abroad Paper Proceeding
Just to let everyone know, I've pulled Revenants Abroad off Smashwords, so that includes Kobo, and Barnes and Noble, etc (Scribd, Oyster, Flipkart). It was proving to be a dead end. I've chosen instead to go with Amazon's KDP Select because I think it will provided greater visibility and will make the book available via… Continue reading Going Select, and a Selection
