Amazon Notifications and Other News

I’ve just learned that Amazon has sent out the notifications about my corrected version of The Great Convergence, so if you have been waiting for it, it is either already sitting in your inbox or will be arriving soon. (Though ‘soon’, it has been pointed out, has an entirely different interpretation for large corporations.) The… Read more »

Smashwords Sale

Hi, everybody! Although the vast majority of you probably found your way here due to the Amazon edition of my books, all of my novels are for sale on Smashwords.com as well. This is good news for anyone looking to finish reading my trilogy (or pick up one of the other books) but iffy about… Read more »

Book 2 Updated

Just a quick heads up. I just pushed fresh copy of The Great Convergence to both Amazon and Smashwords. If you haven’t read that book yet, or plan to read it again, you can download a new copy immediately if you bought it from Smashwords. If you bought it from Amazon, the new copy will… Read more »

A Quick Thanks

Michael Gallagher, the man behind the excellent and useful Free Kindle Books and Tips blog, saw fit to do a post on The Book of Deacon. You can find the specific post here. Thanks for… Read more »

A Huge Milestone

The first installment of The Book of Deacon Trilogy showed up in the very beginning of 2010, and it really got off to a slow start. I sold perhaps three copies, anywhere, in the first few months. As time passed I started to get the hang of what little marketing was available to me, and… Read more »

The Book of Deacon is FREE on Kindle (For Now)

After a confusing sequence of emails with Amazon, I have finally managed to get them to price match The Book of Deacon on the Kindle. That’s right, book 1 of the trilogy is, for the time being, absolutely free! Because of a downright surreal comedy of errors surrounding the price of my book, there is… Read more »
