Well, that was a fun break from blogging. THANKS, RUSSIA! But now that we’re back (…for now), here’s some book news that I’ve been meaning to share.
- Restless Spirits is now available in trade paperback. If anyone is interested in signed copies (…Bueller?), let me know, and I’ll figure out a way to make it happen. Just keep in mind that it would have to ship twice–once to me and then to you–so that would need to be reflected in the price.
- Fragments & Fancies is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It’s 99 cents at both, because that’s the lowest price point those sites allow you to set. It’s still free on Smashwords, although I’m not sure how much longer it will stay that way.
- Speaking of Smashwords, there are only three days left on their site-wide summer sale, during which you can get Restless Spirits for half off with coupon code SSW50. On August 1st it goes back up to $2.99.
- Also, Restless Spirits got it’s first (totally unsolicited and by a total stranger) review on Amazon, and it was a good one. They gave it 5 stars and had this to say:
This is an imaginative take on the traditional ghost story. Ghost hunters might think they’re smart and informed about hauntings, but as this story demonstrates, the reality just might be that they not only don’t know anything, they probably don’t even suspect anything. That’s what I liked about the story, as it gradually revealed the intricate secrets (that never make it into official accounts) of the lives and deaths of everyone who had ever lived in the tiny universe of a single address, and how the fate of the spirits who haunt it could inspire the lives of the living and the dead. The story is well told with creative character development, charming wit and ever-increasing suspense. It is as they say, "a ripping good yarn."
To which I say: Squee!
I have another Indie Author Spotlight coming up soon, but I’m saving that until actually being able to post is more of a sure thing. Right now I have zero confidence that this will actually go through (as I’m currently on my 3rd
4th [I stopped counting] try). *crosses fingers* But here’s hopin’!
