It’s Been a While

Heavens! It’s been a while. I have the shopworn excuse that I’ve been busy. Releasing Mayfield-Napolitani #2, Skins and Bone is the main issue. Plus rewriting #4 (Fatal Cure) and beginning work on #5 (Working title: Hack Attack).

I’ll be doing an Amazon ‘count-down’ sale on the Skins and Bone ebook starting on October 20 … that means $0.99 on the 20th, with prices rising over the next several days back to $2.99.

Sidebar: Please, if you have read either Fatal Score or Skins and Bone, take a few minutes to write a short, honest review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Denizens of the writing advice community, of which there are many, tell me reviews are critical to success because the black-box algorithm at Amazon prizes them.

If you haven’t read Fatal Score, you can get an ebook free HERE. If you haven’t read Skins and Bone, mark your calendar for October 20th!

Fatal Score Launched

Jason and James made fine music

Fatal Score launched on November 18th.  It was wonderful experience that brought together people from so many strands of my life … old friends, new friends, writers, musicians … a marvelous mixture.  I took in 41 books and emerged with none … also marvelous.  Here are some pictures.

Reading Chapter One

The Professor reading

Sisters’ Sludge allowed me to host the event.  The book itself is up on Amazon in trade paperback and e-book format.  The paperback is also printed through IngramSpark, which supplies booksellers and libraries.

Now to the job of editing the audio files I recorded almost two years ago at son Edward’s studio in Santa Monica, California (and some rewrites more recently at Brytespot Studios in Minneapolis).  That will take a while … I hope to have the audiobook out in February.

In any case, thanks to all who came, saw, and brought your good juju. It made the event hum.
