So, I took a look at “The Girl With the Sensible Boots,” and decided that it could make a suitable short story. So I made it into one. You can find it here.
Sorry, it was a long day and not a very productive one. Tales From the Fermi Resolution: Vol. 1: Shadow of the Tower is on 99 cent sale this week in Kindle, and happens to be less than four bucks on paperback. The Kickstarter for Vol 2 is also going live in two days. Every little bit, as they say, helps.
Check them out today! And check out the Kickstarter, too!
Paywalled now, alas, but now available in EPUB and PDF as you go. There’s going to be at least monthly installments, on or around the 15th from now on. Check out THE BOLD MARAUDER today!
RisuCon is a “comic, anime, and cosplay convention in Montgomery County, Maryland” that’s going on August 17th and 18th, 2024. I think that I can sell a book or two, there. Well, obviously I would prefer to sell at least twenty. Comic-cons are usually pretty good venues for me, so here’s hoping!
PS: Can’t wait? Buy my books! …For real. I gotta pay table fees in advance.
- Fiction: TIMMY AND THE FAT MAN. Timmy! Another heartwarming Christmas tale about my favorite wicked child! I shouldn’t enjoy writing these, but I do.
- RPG Material: HEX NATION, PART 4: INDIAN COUNTRY. It would appear that the things historians want to record about Native American tribes are not the same things that I want them to record about Native American tribes. I’m not sure whose fault that is.
I have sold 850 books on Amazon since I have started this entire self-published fiction thing! That number includes books and e-books, but doesn’t include thing like “Pickman’s Model” and the Kindle Vella short stories*. 243 books per year (I started about halfway through 2020) sold through Amazon… isn’t too bad, honestly. I want to thank who has ever taken a chance on my stuff. It’s greatly appreciated.Continue reading I hit a nice, divisible-by-ten milestone in Amazon sales today!
This is sort of my first out-of-state convention (technically, DoxaCon was in Virginia, but it didn’t really feel like out of state. Stellar Con runs a good show; I’ve done well at the last two I’ve done down here. I look forward to seeing how it goes in Pennsylvania.
But why wait? Buy my books now! The perfect Christmas gift.
I don’t actually want that to happen, obviously. But, thanks to inflation, costs are up, and prices have to go up to compensate. FROZEN DREAMS is going to stay the same price in paperback, but prices on some of the others are going to get raised to be more in line with GHOSTS ON AN ALIEN WIND‘s.
Yeah, I’m not happy about it, either. Honestly, I should raise the prices of all my novels to $14.99, but my head’s not there yet. But it may be, soon, so now is the time to buy my books at the cheaper rates…
I know people aren’t supposed to discuss money or sales, but I think that’s because they’re embarrassed to admit it when they need more of either. But why lie? Ten more bucks in sales this month lets me break three figures in online income. Seventy more bucks and I’m at over two grand income for lifetime sales on Amazon. Two hundred, and I do better than I did last year (it was a rough first and second quarter).
So… tell all your friends about my books! Shoot, tell your rivals and frenemies if you think it’ll help. I write good stuff, and I’m not too proud to say it.
