New Year News

I have a couple of real fine writing and marketing items to share. First is the January edition of BTS Book Reviews Magazine, my favorite monthly journal of new books in multiple genres, with writing and publishing news and tips. My ads, as always are in there. They do a sensational job on them.

Next up, Amazon decided to promote my HARD CASE series with a 99 cent sale of the first book in the series. They did a very nice job of their usurpation of our publishing product. Here’s the link, and a wonderful presentation by my publishing partner, Author RJ Parker on his blog. 

RJ Parker has commissioned the HARD CASE and RICK CANTELLI series to audio books to be released this spring. The voice artists are very entertaining. More on that soon.

Last but not least, I’ll be hitting the 60k word plateau by Sunday in my fourth HARD CASE installment. It’s bloody, violent, and as usual, contains a touch of humor. Lynn Montoya, also known by John Harding’s crew as Cruella Deville, decides to add a horrific interrogation tool to her already frightening bag of information extraction methods – straight from ancient and medieval times. She’s on the case, and adding planning to her many duties. John allows her a lot of leeway as they battle to stop a deadly plague.

Sounds from what I read on Facebook that the 99 cent sale went well.

It sure did, Charles. I hate sales, because it's like insulting all the people who paid full price to support a book. We've done them, but none of them worked. Amazon showed us how much muscle they have. They're doing Rick Cantelli, P.I. on January 27th.

Your books sound very interesting! I hope you were able to reach your 60K word plateau yesterday.

I made it over 61k yesterday, Gina. Thank you. :)
