  • Summer Sale!

    Last September, I put the e-book version of Peripheral Involvement on sale for $0.99 for a limited time and ran a few advertisements.  The resulting sales boost (briefly) took it into the top 2,000 on the Kindle Best Seller list and the top 50 in Amazon’s Mystery, Thriller & Suspense subcategory for Literary Fiction.  Those rankings didn’t last, but it was […]

  • Back to Regularly Scheduled Programming (for a moment, anyway)

    Oh… you though that I’d turned this into a full-time soccer blog?  Well, I suppose I can’t blame you for that.  It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted on anything other than the World Cup, and now that we’re getting to the knockout rounds (with the U.S.A still alive, no less), I don’t imagine […]

  • An interview, a reading and a contest

    Promoting a book is challenging, but it’s also a lot of fun.  Over the course of the last week, I’ve done some pretty cool stuff: First, I did an interview with Jeralyn Lash-Sands for her blog, Jeralyn Writes.  I really enjoyed answering her questions.  Many thanks, Jeralyn, for your interest in me and my book! Then, […]
