If you haven’t done so yet, please get yourself a free copy of my first novel, released in December 2012, called “Beauty Rising.” It’s got 85 reviews on Amazon, and it’s an unlikely story that I think you’ll enjoy. Plus it’s FREE! But not forever, so grab it now.

Here’s what one reader had to say about it: “My wife received your book Beauty Rising here in Canada yesterday. I needed something to do last night so I started reading it. I could not put it down. Could not wait to get back to it today. I just finished it. WOW! What a story. What emotion you have been able to put into words that can be felt by the reader. Thank you for sharing your gift.”

FREE: Christmas Story – “If Love is a Crime” (Limited Time)

Hey all,

I’m happy to offer my Christmas story “If love is a crime” for FREE on Kindle from November 28 – Dec 2. If you haven’t read it yet, don’t be a humbug! It’s sure to wrap you up the sweet goodness of Christmas and get you ready for the holiday season.

I wrote this piece last year. It’s based on a short play I wrote called, “If Love is a Crime, String Me Up.” I really do love this piece. It’s about a runaway slave in the 1850s who happens upon the house of Beatrice, where she receives unexpected Christmas love.

Did I mention it’s FREE!  Please go grab yourself a copy and tell your friends. It’s a great short read.

Let me know what you think. It’s my after Thanksgiving gift to you. Enjoy!

If lo

One final day of free: The Recluse Storyteller working the charts

It’s been a profitable two days of free (OK, maybe profitable isn’t the right word), but I am excited about getting my writing into even more hands of readers. Here’s what it has been up to so far:

Moved up to number seven in literary fiction. Almost as popular as the Timberland shoes on the left.

photo 1Reached #2 on the contemporary lit fiction and we still have one more full day of promotion ahead of us. Hoping to go with a big bang!

I appreciate everyone who has helped pass the word.  It means a lot with my next novel only 6 weeks away from publication.

A Big Week: 25th Anniversary, a Cover, a Musical, and Promotions

Some weeks are bigger than others. This one’s a big one.

Tuesday, May 13 marks quite a milestone in my marriage as we will be celebrating our silver anniversary. I know it’s cliche to say, “Where did the time go?” or “It’s so hard to believe.” But sometimes cliches say it all – I truly don’t know where the time went, and it absolutely is incredibly hard to believe.

In honor of this important week, I’d like to highlight a lot of items on the agenda for the next two weeks. It truly is an exciting time for me.

Wed, May 14 – I’ll be releasing for the first time the amazing cover to my third novel – The Reach of the Banyan Tree.  I hope everyone loves the cover as much as I do. Even more importantly, however, is the story itself. I love it. I hope it will find a large readership. Much more on this later.

Thursday, May 15-17 – KINDLE FREE DAYS for The Recluse Storyteller. Looking ahead to the release of novel 3, I would like to expand my readership for my second novel which has been well received but has yet to find its marketing legs. If you could help me spread the word about these three days, I’d be grateful.

Friday, May 23 – My original musical which I wrote in collaboration with my students is making its debut at the Penang Performing Arts Centre. It has been such fun working on this long-term project and now it’s almost here!

Monday, May 26 – Kindle Countdown Deal on my debut novel, Beauty Rising. It will be only 99 cents through June 1.

Thanks for all of your support.

Pressing forward!
