Offering Books for Free, with Interview

Posted by:

It’s a question that often comes up from fans and other writers. “Why do you offer any of your books for free?” I usually give my answers when the question comes up, but one curious reader asked me several questions lately, and I figured that they might make for a good posting on the subject. So here we are.

Free books have flooded the marketplace lately, from Amazon to Barnes and Noble, from iTunes to Kobo. Independent author-publishers are beginning to ...

Back from the Delta Paranormal Fest

Posted by:

spectators_2This weekend, I had the pleasure of heading up to Greenville, MS, for the annual Delta Paranormal Project Conference and Paranormal Investigations (or, as commonly called, ‘ghost hunts’). I got into town late Friday night, a result of a little lack of planning and hungry bellies (of my traveling partner and me) in Vicksburg, MS, but I went to the meet and greet and had a blast anyway. ...

Delta Paranormal Fest

Posted by:

I’m finishing up my preparations fo heading to Greenville, MS, to participate in the Delta Paranormal Fest tomorrow. I know it’s a smaller event, but it any of the fans from Arkansas, Louisiana, or Mississippi would like me to sign their book, bring it with you for the conference.

I’ll be going along with some professional ghost hunters on Saturday night to some sites around Greenville, also. This should be quite interesting indeed.

I Got an iPad and Quit My Job, etc.

Posted by:

All right. Some updates now that I’ve settled in. I have gotten an iPad and a wireless keyboard, linked everything up through Google Docs, and now I’m “technologically advanced,” I suppose. With everything linked up, I can work on any device I have and the updates carry over automatically to everything else.

I have left my job as a dispatcher and have decided not to go back to another 911 center on a full-time basis. So, I’m a full-time writer and ...

Publishing Services on Indefinite Hold

Posted by:

I’ve placed the publishing services on indefinite hold for new clients. It was just taking too much time away from my own projects. I have to focus on my own stuff before I can worry about doing formatting for others. So, until further notice (probably March or so), the publishing services branch of my company will be on extended hold.

Also wasn’t able to get anyone trained for the assistant formatter position, so that has been a factor in the decision ...

A Brief Hospital Trip

Posted by:

I’m lucky to be out of the hospital. I talked briefly about it on the Facebook page, but I’ll go ahead and update those who don’t visit there. I developed an infection in my leg, and for that, I had to visit the hospital for about four days. Everything’s fine now–well, still a bit sore in the affected leg, but I’ll be fine now–and I’m back at it.

The paperback and hardcover release for Consuls of the Vicariate will be soon. ...

Author Video Interviews in the Works

Posted by:

I’ve always loved watching my favorite writers on video interviews, even if it’s just to answer questions from emails and interviewers not necessarily in the same room. Therefore, I’ve purchased a “home studio kit” after researching the best camera for me. I went under $200.00 for a rather nice setup with a tripod and microphone jack on the camera. I watched numerous reviews on the model to make sure it would do what I want. For the kind of needs ...

Posted by:

It’s been four months since The Dying Times hit the scene, and about 23 days since The War of the Dead was released. I’m here to report on sales rankings, sales numbers, and so forth.

I will include sales from all channels as of 02/25, and they shouldn’t change a huge amount until the end of the month.

KindleProcessor, a tool from Late Nite Books

Posted by:

I have created the KindleProcessor, a tool for processing manuscripts into properly-formatted (in essence, cosmetically “pretty” and easier to read) versions.  Basically, you put in your quarter, upload the file, and it sends you a file that can be uploaded straight to Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing site for immediate distribution.

The project started as a simple automated macro for me to format my own Kindle eBooks, but I decided to share the tool with others who need it.  ...

The Dying Times has cleared 1000 sales

Posted by:

The Dying Times has cleared the 1000 sales mark in the first 3 months it has been out.  Sales on other titles add to the numbers and remain steady, as well.

It would only be proper to thank the readers who have made this possible.  Without them, my material wouldn’t be read and would remain in obscurity.  I appreciate all of the readers who have given me a chance so far, and I hope many more will give The Survivor Chronicles ...
