Successful Launch!

Thanks to everyone out there who stopped by my Facebook page and joined in the Shudderbugs launch this week!

We ended up with 208 downloads over the five day free period. It means a lot to me that you all participated. I know it’s not as much as some of the others got during their free periods, and I think I’m out of freebies from Amazon for the next couple of months (May-ish, I think), but I have a couple of more stories and collections I can recycle and put out to keep interest up.

I have planned full-length works too. Just no time to work on them right now.

Stay tuned and hang with me as we move forward, everyone, and thanks again!

Don’t Forget — “Shudderbugs” Launches Tomorrow!

I hope you’re all ready!

Tomorrow, Saturday, March 23, my newest short story eBook will go live on Amazon Kindle for FREE! It’s called “Shudderbugs”, and contains not one but TWO stories with photography themes! The book will be free from March 23 to March 27, and then it goes to its regular price of 99¢. So get your copy while it’s free!

Here’s the cover:

If you do pick it up and enjoy the stories (they are older, though, and my writing has changed a LOT since then), please consider leaving a review on Amazon. It helps us, and makes me feel better. I mean, when it’s positive, anyway. But be honest! Always be honest!

Anyway, go pick it up for FREE starting tomorrow!

Have a great weekend.

Come to the Party!

There’s a launch party this Saturday, March 23, 2013, over on my Facebook page!

Why?

Well, this Saturday, March 23, 2013 (yeah, I can’t do it without the year, sorry), I’ll be releasing a new (old) short story duet for the Amazon Kindle platform!

The set is called Shudderbugs, and features two stories based on – wait for it! – photography! And the best part? It will be FREE for the first five days of the launch!

I’m hoping to have it uploaded on Friday and have it available for Saturday, when it will also be FREE for FIVE (meaning for five days). So mark your calendar, and come on over to my Facebook author page and join the party!

See you Saturday!

The Results are IN!

Well, I have to say the campaign to get my work into as many hands as possible this past week really paid off.

Not in a financial way – giving books away isn’t known for making one rich – but in a way I never imagined.

This past week, and especially with the help of EReaderLove.com, my work made it into the hands of more than 2500 people.

Now, as stated, no one ever got rich giving books away. I didn’t make a nickel on that campaign. But my work got into the hands of more than 2500 people, and maybe some afterglow sales will occur. (Nothing’s impossible, right?)

So I’d like to thank EReaderLove for their part in helping me. I don’t know how I got so lucky as to have you pick up my work and showcase it, but I’m very grateful. And if there’s anything I can do to return the favor, please let me know. I’ll help as best I can. (I can’t advertise on my blog, though, sorry.)

New, Lower Prices for My Short Story Collections!

My two collections of short stories, A Fine Cast of Characters and A Moonlit Stroll, are both now even CHEAPER and EASIER than ever!

Yes, like their author, my two collections of short stories for sale on Amazon’s Kindle store and soon, on KoboBooks.com, are now only $1.99! That’s a full dollar less than it was before!

Go and get yours today!

And, if you enjoy the stories, please be sure to leave a review on either Amazon, GoodReads, Shelfari, or anywhere else you can reach an audience!

…but if you don’t like ’em and think they stink, please don’t leave me a bad review. It hurts my feelings and makes me cwy. (Just kidding.)

Thanks, and spread the word! 😉
