If I had to guess…

So Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is a hard sell. Given its subject matter, I’m not surprised. Maybe a little disappointed… but I approached that work with no less dedication than any other. Thankfully, I won’t be publishing anything that gritty in the future. No promises, though. My short stories can get a little real, in…

Novel Updates for August 2018

Now I understand why self publishing is so perilous. The good news is that Soft Hearts, Hard Memories is now ‘name your price’ with the suggested price of $4.95. The bad news is that ordering physical copies from Amazon is so untrustworthy that I’ve pulled the edition from their store. I had determined some time…

Writing, Music, Reviews and HonestGamers.com

Where have I been since the beginning of the month? Waiting for Paypal, mostly. Nonetheless, I’m back, and I’ve been busily writing, studying, working on music and reviewing games. Here’s a breakdown with links (which open in a new window): Reviews Kirby’s Epic Yarn (Wii) The Wii was never a doomed platform; it sparkles with…

1000 copies and a new manuscript.

So it’s been two years since I self published Every One Fight, Bold Curves, A Thief at the Gala and Sector Bomb. How have my books fared? Not too badly. Between them all, just short of 1000 copies have moved across the digital storefronts through which Smashwords distributes my works. I probably avoided looking at…

Eschewing the Silly

This is exactly why I didn’t get into NaNoWriMo. I’ve a story with an ending, now, but it gets in the way of the first part of a novel that needs to be finished. I’d hoped to include it in Bold Curves, but … until it’s ready … that won’t be happening. It might, cialis.html…

Ahead on Machined Shoulders: Sampled

So as it turns out I had this nagging impression to highlight Ahead on Machined Shoulders. Before that, I’ll tell you a little something: Shareware bites hard these days. “Free” downloads bait-and-switch trailware and interruptionsoft teasers galore, whilst I attempt to proofread with a sick dog on my lap. She’ll be fine, we figure, but…

Quietly rewriting Sector Bomb

Sector Bomb is, under another title, at present, a big fat draft. I love big fat drafts. They’ve got lots of ideas, plenty of editing and ‘text grunt work’ – tons of stuff that needs improvement I can’t even see yet. Unfortunately I wrote it from the wrong perspective. That’s the lesson planning teaches you….

Every One Fight: on KDP Sooner than Expected

This is the first book in the Threads of Canor Series. I highly recommend buying a paperback edition if you enjoy this book: Subscriptions for novels is a positively silly/stupid/dangerous idea.

Every One Fight Retails at your Descretion

Every One Fight is no longer available at Wattpad so’s you should know. You want to find out how Masurani deals with her own discomfort and loss, you’ll have to buy it at Amazon or pick up a copy via Smashwords, but not Barnes and Noble, since they don’t like the idea of flex pricing. Hey, you’ve had notice. ^^

Making Mistakes: Re-Re-Proofing

I highly recommend it. Looking at the second proof submission for Every One Fight – Amazon Edition this morning I noticed I’d overlooked a basic feature of the paperback: Numbered Pages. My word – and yours – how could I overlook that? Easily.
