Emperor Norton Lives!

Hey, folks! The first installment in SERVANT/SOVEREIGN, my new time travel/urban fantasy/historical fiction series set in San Francisco, is out now! Pick it up!

Pre-order Withrow #5!

Pssssst! You can preorder the ebook of Nobody Gets Out Alive, the fifth and final book of The Withrow Chronicles. (Additional psssst: if you click on the paperback edition you can just straight-up buy it already.)

Promotions Pay Off

I’ve never worked as hard to promote a book as I have with A Fall in Autumn. In the two and a half months since it was published – no, two and three-quarters – I’ve directly queried something in the neighborhood of 150 outlets seeking reviews. I nearly got reviews by NPR’s All Things Considered, … Continue reading »

A Bunch of Nonsense

Here’s a post from my Facebook Page. And to think, people pay me for words that I write! Two and a half things: I am ridiculous, and I’m starting a newsletter, and I’m going to sneak a fun half-thing into a footnote of this post because why not?   THING ONE:   I finally let … Continue reading »

Monthly Micro-Fiction Mailing List

It turns out I’m lousy at maintaining a blog. In part that’s because, as a writer, I have very limited time to devote to marketing and advertising and that kind of thing. But now I have this idea for a way to do that and write new stuff for you to enjoy: a micro-fiction mailing list! To … Continue reading »

Money Talks – or Does It?

The system was very different then, however, and after all the jazz about Russian meddling in the election for very small amounts of money on a per-meddle basis, I figured I’d … Continue reading »

Kindle Pre-Orders Are Live!

Falstaff Books have put the first four volumes of The Withrow Chronicles up on Amazon for digital pre-order. These are, Amazon-wise, completely different books from the versions I published myself, meaning if you already have the books they will not automatically update to these editions. PERISHABLES is up for a pre-order price of 99 cents. It’s … Continue reading »

Follow-Up to Last Post: Promoted Advertisements

A little over a year ago I said I was going to try paying small amounts of money for promoted posts and positioning on Facebook and Amazon, and see what happened. The theory behind them is that your content or your books will show up in front of people who otherwise wouldn’t see it but … Continue reading »

Back in the Saddle: Advertising, Brands, & Bookselling

Back in the Saddle Wow, it’s kind of been a while since I really did the whole blogging thing, hasn’t it? It’s kind of been a stressful year. A lot of work stress is gone now, happily. I was on a major project that wrapped up a few weeks ago, giving me just enough time … Continue reading »

Quandaries & Opportunities

I have an interesting opportunity and a quandary, and I’d like to describe them to you. One of the goals I set for myself when I published PERISHABLES was to experiment with different means of promotion via The Perishables Project. As part of the project, with each novel I’ve set a goal of selling ten … Continue reading »
