So I understand that it has been a LONG time since I've blogged about anything. It's hard enough for me to sit down and spew forth something that someone else might care about, but the last few months have been insane! But I won't drag you into my personal life - it's off limits anyway:-) But I will redouble my efforts at trying to remain somewhat relevant in this blog-eat-blog world of spotlight reflection, if only to let you know I'm still alive and that I have books I want you to buy. I mean read. Because I want you to read my books so bad, I have once again taken up the .99 cent approach. Unable to bribe my way into a promo spot for the next two months on the site that has brought me pretty much all of my success, I decided to get the jets going in the tide pool. I don't expect the crashing waves of a surging front to bring thousands of new readers to my shores, but if I can just get some nice rolling waves in the kiddie pool, then that would be okay for the next couple months. SO... For the first time, ALL four of my novels are now available for both Nook and Kindle (and paperback, of course). And for as long as I feel like it, they will be .99 each. I'm not going to try and talk you into getting them. In fact, I'd much rather you pay $5 for them. It's the difference between me getting about .33 and $3.33 each sale. A lot of people will have to buy my books at .99 for me to be able to hit all those other bills that just seem to slip out of my salary's reach every month, but hey... it's not really about that is it? I don't write to eat - though that would be amazing, and I'm tantalizingly close to attempting a sellout just to do so, but for now... I write because I have to. I publish because I want to share my stories with people like me, that like what I like, that might relate to some of the craziness in my head. Unfortunately there are a lot of people out there who are not like me (which is fine, diversity is holy) that decide to read my stories. The evidence of these misadventures can be found in all the one and two-star Amazon reviews. But don't read them. Please. Unless you're so unlike me and my readers that reading them will prevent you from spending .99 and writing a scathing review on how terrible a person I am. For the .33 I will get from your purchase, I'll gladly trade it for your silence! Where is this all going? I have no idea. I haven't done this since our free sampler was released! Which, by the way, is FREE. Check it out on the main page. People I am unworthy to be paired with deserve your readership (and hopefully you give my A Man Overboard a shot, too)!
I guess I'll let you go now after that long and grammatically negligent paragraph. First, however, I'll give you a little taste of what's to come.
