The Dead Shall Live — The Book Trailer!

The Dead Shall Live — The Book Trailer!

  This is a sneaky, stealthy, and devious way to announce the pub date for The Dead Shall Live. But it’s also fun and fabulous. Because I want you to see my new book trailer. So watch it, and then you’ll know when to expect the book to drop into your inbox if you preorder at the special preorder price. I’m getting ahead of myself. Watch!   I hope you love it as much as I do! Please, give it a thumbs up at youtube by clicking that image and feel free to leave a comment, if you’d like! Pre-Order The Dead Shall...

This Crumbling Pageant–The Book Trailer!

I never intended to create book trailers and yet suddenly, wow, I have done it. I am going to ask you a huge favor! Will you please go like this on youtube and facebook? The more it gets liked, the more it will be shown to random strangers who don’t move quickly enough to avoid it! Wait. That is not what I intended to say. Ahem. The more it will be offered for the reading enjoyment of those whose algorythms share an affinity with other people who loved the book! [Is that better? I think that’s better. Ahem. Am I punch drunk?...

Pssst. I am sharing a secret with you.

This is not an official announcement. I have hooplah planned for that. Hooplah, I say. But the pre-order links are being set up for The Dead Shall Live. So let me give you the deal. Pre-Order is only $3.99 at Amazon  & Kobo and other stores are coming soon.     At midnight-oh-one on Samhain [that’s Halloween to some of you] two things will happen.   One, this digital book will land on your ereader and be waiting for you if you have pre-ordered. Like magic!   Two, the price goes up a dollar. Yes, when this book is...

Watching the Moon’s Shadow in an Unexpected Way

Watching the Moon’s Shadow in an Unexpected Way

I had no idea you could watch an eclipse–watch the moon’s shadow–without special anything. I did not know that what we see as ‘sunshine’ is actually myriad overlapping circles of light, and during an eclipse, the become slices of light. My Resident Storm Chaser shows me these kinds of things. He’s so smart. And watching the ground, various places around the yard, was beautiful. “Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow, moon shadow, moonshadow— Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,...

Deep In My Heart, I Do Believe

Deep In My Heart, I Do Believe

Deep in my heart, I do believe, we’ll walk hand in hand, we are not afraid, the whole wide world around, we shall overcome, someday. Gospels at Heaven, a German gospel choir “We Shall Overcome” was based on “I’ll Overcome Someday” by Charles Albert Tindley first published in 1900. The lyrics recorded and popularized by Pete Seeger: We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome, some day.   Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe We shall overcome, some day.   We’ll walk hand in hand,...

Reviews Made Short & Easy [for the busy reader with things to say]

Reviews Made Short & Easy [for the busy reader with things to say]

Books reviews don’t have to be hard. They don’t have to be long. They don’t have to be detailed. Amazon & Goodreads reviews–short and easy? Sure. Here’s how. You see authors asking for reviews all the damned time but who has time for that? But if your reason for not reviewing is that you’re too busy, and besides, they they have to be long, or it’s too much work writing them, or you’re intimidated by the process, let me make just say– PAH! This is not a book report. There will not be a...

That Moment When…

That Moment When…

That moment when the problem… The problem that has been eating you alive from the inside out for months… The problem that the final conflict in your book, this passionate project you are pouring your heart and soul into? Isn’t              quite                        working.   That problem that, yes the book is written and the revisions are almost done, but that final conflict? That final clash between good and evil? Works on paper. Works with logic. Works within the world, within the story, within my wretched, Dark,...

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott is only $2.99 Today!

Court of Fives by Kate Elliott is only $2.99 Today!

I have no idea how long this special price will last, but Elliott’s publisher prices her ebooks high, so $2.99 is a bargain. And oh is it worth it. I said long ago I was going to talk about this series and I never have. This sale price gives me the perfect opportunity. This seems to be her answer to Hunger Games. Not that there needed to be an answer to Hunger Games. But let’s put it this way. Jessamy is a kickass character whose skill at the Court of Fives, a dangerous game that entertains the masses, is central to the plot....

Really, Pooks? Really?

Really, Pooks?  Really?

Really, Pooks? Really? Okay, first I was supposed to have a special advertising thing going on  which got cancelled for the second time because when the ad folks checked this morning, the book was not .99 on Amazon. WTHeckarooni? The first time it happened, I took the bullet. I decided that even though I had marked it down in my planner as ‘done’ I had somehow missed Amazon when I dropped the price everywhere. So I immediately dropped it and decided to leave the price at .99 everywhere until after the promotion finally ran today,...
