I’m excited, without a doubt, to be able to say that my second book, Red Sky Warning, is now available for purchase on Kindle (support ticket in about the image, long story) and Nook and at Smashwords for other formats. It will become available on Kobo and Sony Ereader, and at iTunes over the next few weeks. The paperback should be available within 2 weeks.
I feel like I should be more eloquent about it all but I’m currently a mixture of exhausted and thrilled 🙂
Early feedback has been that it’s even better than the first, and that is something I love to hear!
To make up for my current quiet, please check out The-Cheap.net for today’s feature (me) and a guest post I wrote for them, which is supposed to appear on an affiliated site. At this early hour (pre-6 am) I don’t see either posted yet. I will update with links here when they do become available.
Coming soon: A blog about how incredibly different “Publishing, Round 2” turned out to be!

Been a few days!
Life was thrown into chaos on Thursday when work went from ‘pick your color’ to ‘BANGBANGBANG’ in less than 24 hours, as our contractor began to replace the siding on our house. In April, an F-0 (what I said) or F-1 (what the contractor said) tornado hit our house. Thankfully we had no structural damage but cosmetically things have looked a bit rough for awhile. Now we near the end of repair work and it’s, well …… loud.
Yesterday, another storm rolled in. It was short but intense and old siding from the in-progress work soon littered our yard. We watched this from the open windows because, well, that was the most entertaining thing we could do with a 2-year old while the power was out. He kept asking us to turn on the lights, and to turn on Mickey, but was pacified and then truly enthralled with his stealthy attempts to stick his head out the window every time I blinked.
Despite the lack of power and the late evening hour I managed to scrawl in my notebook by the dying light from the open window. Another chapter finished, another page complete, and one step closer to finishing the first draft of book two. I’m well over the half-way point now and easily on track to finish (and have it typed) by the end of the month.
In the meantime, Amazon continues to sell Come the Shadows at 99c despite the price update to 2.99 that has already taken effect at Barnes & Noble. Sorry Nook-ers! (Is that right, it sounds far to much like a less savory word…) The issue lies with the Smashword version which has yet to update across it’s premium catalog. Hopefully that will take affect soon and I can stop thinking about pricing and focus on writing.
One last note about things I need to not think about while writing… I sold my first UK copy and didn’t even know it. Smile-worthy =)
One really, truly last note……if you don’t know what Timey-Wimey is, well, you’re missing out. Our power came on in plenty of time last night for our Saturday treat.

After Amazon finally listened and made my short story One Final Night free (totally KO’ing my planned REPORT ME PLEASE post), I decided to drop my book in price for this weekend only.
So for 99c you can it up for both Kindle and Nook for the next 48 hours.
Monday it returns to $2.99.
As always, reviews on both are VERY welcome – word of mouth, especially on those pages, really helps the writing thrive and reach new fans. Thank you to everyone who picks up the book and I can’t wait to bring you the next one in a few months!
In other news…. it seems Barnes and Noble is now carrying my paperback, and it’s $8.99 – a full $1 cheaper than Amazon. Whoa.
I just write things. That’s all I know.
Edit: Later in the day I figure out why B&N is cheaper and that I get 1/7 the money for those sales. Meh. Right now I’m just happy the book is being read 🙂
