Holiday thriller sale! #MysteryThrillerPromo

December Thriller SaleHowdy!  It’s sale time again.  In honor of the holiday season, for the very first time, you can get The Volunteer for only $0.99!  In addition, Beaten just happens to be free right now, so you can get the entirety of The Primer for under a dollar for the weekend…just in the for Christmas or the last couple nights of Hanukkah.  And, in my best Billy Mays voice….but wait, there’s more!  If you head over, you’ll find fifteen mysteries and nineteen thrillers (including The Volunteer), all for $0.99 each.  It’s truly a Festivus miracle.

Happy Festivus

So…I just threw a whole bunch of statements at you.  You know what’s better than statements?  A bulleted list of links.

And that’s it.  Check ’em out. Hopefully the next time you hear from me, I’ll actually be finished with NaNoWriMo (sitting at 87.5% right now) and progress will have resumed on The Primer book 5.  Hopefully, that doesn’t involve not hearing from me in a month.

Okay, I love you, bye bye.

Introducing: Dark & Bitter #IndiePub

Howdy.  I wrote a short story.  It’s called “The Intruder.”  It’s dark.  It’s strange.  It’s also available now, for the very first time, in an anthology from 518 Publishing called Dark & Bitter.  It’s kind of a big deal.

Click that cover, and you’ll be transported to Amazon, where you can find the whole book in eBook and Paperback format.  I’m a terrible salesman, but check it out anyways.  Amazon says it’ll arrive by Christmas if you order now.  :Þ

I haven’t had a chance to read the whole thing yet, but it’s right at the top of my list.  Just waiting for my paperback copy.  Paperbacks > eBooks.  I’ll fight you.

#NaNoWriMo2017: The End

It’s just about over.  Officially, anyways.  Let’s see now….

And the new lifetime number:

I’m not going to lie, that one feels pretty good.  I’ve been doing NaNoWriMo for thirteen years now (though I skipped 2006 because that was the dark time), and I’ve won every year I’ve done it.  Makes the whole thing feel pretty massive to have logged more than a cool million in the process, even if it’s been more than a decade.

My plan, right now, is to retire from NaNoWriMo in 2020.  That’s when I plan to be finished with the story I started way back in 2005.  There’ll be lots more about that later, if I ever get around to editing this beast.  Suffice it to say, those million words aren’t all I’ve got sitting on the hard drive.  By now, I’ve established how terrible I am at keeping to plans, so chances are, when 2021 rolls around, I’m going to still be plugging away at the same old story.  2031, too.

In the meantime, where do we go from here?  In an ideal world, I would have accomplished everything I wanted to in November.  I didn’t make it.  The section I’ve been working on is 64 chapters, and I’ve only got 48 in the can.  I’m going to keep plugging away (probably at a slower pace) until I finish the final 25%.  Hopefully well before the holidays.

After that, I’m going hardcore on edits for The Primer books 5 and 6.  They’re both written.  They both need a bunch of work.  I’ll have  lots to say about them soon enough.  I’ve got an outline for the end of the series, which is going to be a massive tome compared to everything I’ve put out so far, and a framework for book 7, which is probably the most amorphous thing left in The Primer.  2018 is going to be a busy year.  I’m excited.  I’m also tired.

It’s #NaNoWrimo time!

November has begun again, and I’ve once again dropped everything I was working on in order to dump infinity words into a Word …

Book 5

Did I mention “Book 5” has become two books? Like Break and Beaten, and then The New Program and The Volunteer, books 5 and 6 are going …


It’s been a while since I did my last “Home Improvement” post.  And things have been improved!  To tell this story in …
