Haven’t been at it for a while on the writing front, but I’m back again with a few updates, so … here we go:

Bold Curves (link) re-published with new content at the humble price of $1 (minimum).
Synopsis: Aaran has a problem with her other self, and overcoming this individual somehow results in her becoming entrusted with the lives of many who cannot otherwise protect themselves. In a post-apocalyptic world survived by a handful of cities and off-planet colonies, Aaran is beset by constant threats against her and her closest allies. She will not be put down, however … 

A Thief at the Gala (link) no change, now listed here. (Free.)

Every One Fight (link), updated to premium status on Smashwords. (Free.)
Synopsis: Masurani was set to run professionally when her father dies in a terrorist attack. Between puberty and grief she pursues the martial arts only to refuse a invitation to join the government backed KnightsMage.

Sector Bomb (link), no change, now listed here. (Free.)
Synopsis: Was it a bomb or magic? Sector 9 is levelled, hundreds dead, thousands injured and in dire need. While the Alliance of Courts decides how best to curtail costs, Representative Castlegar of Whitegraft charges ex-cop Aaran Coates and android associate Buddy Namiki to prevent another attack.

Every One Fight: on KDP Sooner than Expected

EOF-Amazon-KDP-08-15-2014

Golly!

Kindle Direct Publishing approved Every One Fight for release on its service. ‘Service’ huh? That’s fine. $1.99 USD will grant you a fully DRM-free unlimited use version for your reading enjoyment. 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.

How to Reach Me: On a related note my KDP author page is ready, but I don’t plan on that being a primary point of interaction. In this order, depending on the volume of writing and editing: Email > Twitter > Blog > Amazon KDP & Smashwords > Everything else. Continue reading

Every One Fight Retails at your Descretion

EOF-Smashwords 08-15-2014

Careful, clicking this will take you there!

Instead of delaying Every One Fight to rename it, which I considered, I decided to change the Smashwords Edition to “whatever you wanna pay” model in advance of the Amazon and KDP release, since the first sale was made when the book was available for nothin’. The Amazon Edition will retail at $1.99, with MatchBook enabled for the sum cost of nothin’. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

Pricing Change, Special Offer

06-21-2014 - Summer Sale

Every One Fight now retails for $4.99 CDN/USD, and until the 30th, the code AS74E will give you 75% off ‘sticker’ price! Additionally, Every One Fight is now free for libraries. I’m also courting the idea of offering a perk to new followers here, Twitter, and Wattpad.

Premium and an Interview

Four days ago Every One Fight was accepted to Smashwords Premium, which means it is available, well, everywhere. Goodreads, even. Scary. I’d love to say it’s in print, but it’s not. Smashwords is for the moment my sole publisher. It’s great but not. On a brighter note I completed my interview, which I will actually link here.

Every One Fight – Excerpt

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/444405

One: Backhand Fist

There was this one thought I couldn’t get out of Pop’s head, and that was the strange idea he had about me and marathon running. Built like I was Doctor Namiki warned me I’d pop a lung, so I put my foot down and raised my voice at Pop about it. It was because of that clap-trap he refused to let me compete offside.
Not like I cried about it.
A lot of stuff was important to me, but… the year-end meet at Columnar Secondary took first place. This was an annual meet, and in five years Dad hadn’t missed a solitary event. Working his skin to the bone, and I noticed. Boy howdy did I notice.
I did my long jump, 100-meter dash, and was gettin’ ready for my big run when I got called over by J. Tennison, my new coach. Pretty guy, strict as law. I was crushin’ on him pretty hard. Mr. Tennison looked unsettled and sad.
He gave me his phone. It was Mom.
Pop had been killed in some kind of accident or something. Tennison was busy apologizing and explaining as if I gave a wick. I’ve never cried so hard in my life about anything.
Since? Maybe.
