Forward Steps

For those of you paying attention (and looking for a voice over job, perhaps), I have some deal for you.

First off, it’s official. “At Last” is available across all e-reader platforms. To celebrate this milestone, I’m offering 50% off on both books through Smashwords:



 Go to Smashwords, use the coupon codes and before you can say supercalifragilisticexpealidocious, you’ve got good books cheap.


and if you are inclined to leave review in your wake (Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, Barnes &Noble…), please do so.


In the words of Vice President Joe Biden, “this is a big fucking deal.” (He really said that to the President when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. The one the Republicans have voted 52 times to repeal. And are suing the President because he he’s not enforcing some provisions of it).its moving me closer to the tipping point where I may bump into someone one the street with one of my books. With the advent of the e-reader, I’m not likely to see a paperback clutched under the arm, but maybe I’ll be recognized. THAT’S rock star status.

The other “thing” is that the same advances in technology that have gotten me to publish also allow the possibility of converting “These Foolish Things” and “At Last” into audiobooks. I just need vocal talent. And maybe a producer. If you are interested/curious, follow the link.

When this happens, I think I will pass out in a coma of joy.

So, to recap: half off at Smashwords and YOUR chance to become the next Morgan Freeman.


Ta Da!

Semi big news today.

For starters, “At Last” has been accepted in the Smashwords premium catalog which means that the e-book is not only available through the Smashwords site, but will also be available for purchase through the Barnes & Noble website, Kobo, Page Foundry…

This is cool. This is really cool.


Secondly, I just finished uploading samples from both “These Foolish Things” and “At Last” to ACX to POSSIBLY (not a done deal by a long shot) be turned into… AUDIOBOOKS. All my actress friends looking for voice work? Find a producer and audition. I’m serious.

I am not a religious person (spiritual, yes, with Protestant – not fundamentalist, Protestant – leanings), but I try to be careful with pride. It is one of the seven deadly sins (along with gluttony, of which I have been accused. By a manipulative control freak who realized I had rejected her influence. That’s a different book). I am happy for my friends and their accomplishments rather than proud of them; to me (and only to me) pride is appropriate when you had a hand in their success, like teaching a kid to ride a bike and the kid goes on to win the Tour de France (without later being stripped of the title for doping). Me being proud, though, can be a highway to arrogance. And arrogance gets me in trouble. So, I am happy and relieved that I have gotten “At Last” to a point where it can be more widely accessed. And given the nonsense I went through to get the samples of the books loaded into ACX (Really. Actress friends: go audition. Be a producer), happy and relieved to have that important first step behind me.

All in all, a good day.
