Guest Blog Post Means You Could Win a Free BOOK!

I got to guest post on Chuck Sambuchino's Guide To Literary Agents Blog (part of WritersDigest.com) today, even though I don't have an agent. I wrote 7 Things I've Learned So Far, all my knowledge of writing to date. ALL OF IT. And if you comment on that blog post in the next two weeks, you could win a free print copy of BETA TEST. (Yes, I still happily pimp my first novel, not just KALI.) (You can only win if you're from the U.S. or Canada.)

Speaking of KALI--hopefully big doings for that book in a couple of days as I swoop into Chicago to attend WorldCon.

Try a Sample Chapter of KALI

Sure, you can visit the Amazon page for KALI: The Ghosting of Sepulcher Bay and view a sample page or more.

But if you're prefer, here's a link to a PDF file that includes the entire first chapter! Take look at what Kali would look like if it were a print book.

Here's some big news... My new book is out.

It's called Kali: The Ghosting of Sepulcher Bay, my first foray into the world of YA (that "young adult" in case you missed the crappy movie with Charlize Theron). It's the tale of a 15-year-old girl named Kaliope "Kali" Stergakos who has a severe ghost problem. In that they happen to possess her body when she sleeps. And that's not even the worst thing she's got to deal with.

This book is exclusively available at Amazon for the Kindle. At some point I'll go into why I decided to essentially become my own publisher with this book (part of the reason: I love this book, and I think other people will too). And why I went with Kindle Direct Publishing as the platform to start with. Eventually, I will likely expand the book to other ebook platforms, but that's a few months away.

So, please, if you own a Kindle ebook reader, or any devices that supports the Kindle reader software – an iPhone, iPad, Android phone, even a full-fledged computer running Mac or Windows, they all have Kindle software available—I hope you'll give KALI a try. At only $2.99 I think it's priced right and if you like some rollicking good teen adventure with some ghostly chills, it should be just your ticket.

Listen to me Live (with Tamaria)

I recorded an interview about BETA TEST -- and my upcoming new launch, coming soon! -- on Live with Tamaria!  We had some technical difficulties,but you know... that's just what life is. Technical difficulties, with occasionally getting things done.  Listen to it here.
