Slip Away - Technical Difficulties

UPDATE: It looks like it's now available via the iBookstore. You can also grab it at the Kindle store and through Lulu (via the button to the right). 


Slip Away, the spectacularly unknown novel that commands zero demand throughout the entire world, might not be available for a few hours (and hopefully not more than that). I've been battling Lulu's EPUB converter, which adores spitting out multiple errors with explanations so vague they could be about problems elephants experience while trying to mate.

Nevertheless, I think I've finally ironed out most of the non-issues that the converter honestly believe will cause the Rapture if they should make it past its crappy filters. If you have a Kindle, grab some cheap, good lit, as that service is unaffected.

Also, I'm going to write about games again soon. If that's what you're interested in, be patient just a bit longer. The upcoming posts won't be your average game reviews...

Editor's Choice for Fiction...Times Three!

I'm a regular contributor to Fiction Writers Platform, a sort of DIY publishing spot for short works. I've just earned my third Editor's Choice award! In order of date of reception, the awards are for:


Perfect Angel, which I wrote while listening to an Elliott Smith song called Twilight,

Thick as a Brick, obviously inspired by the famous Jethro Tull one-track rock album,

and finally,

Love Song, a short story I wrote for my loving wife Emily as a Valentine's Day gift.

Please give them a read and, if you would, a brief review (or even limit your reaction to a simple star rating, which is an option below each story, if you care to); it won't take very long and I truly appreciate any and all feedback.

UPDATE: SLIP AWAY PRICE DROP! My heavily praised debut novel only $2.99!

My ebook Slip Away was recently chosen as the featured work onSelect Authors! If you love a good read, consider investing a pittance of $2.99 at the Kindle or Nook stores, depending on which ereader you own. If you don't have one, you can buy the novel for $4.00 as a PDF at Lebrary.

It's coming-of-age tragedy laced with bits of dark comedy, romance, and paintball.

There is a taste of the book, in the form of the prologue and the first three chapters, available for your perusal. I really need you to share it with all your friends and work up a groundswell to get this sucker moving. My cat's life may depend on it: I'm very broke and very hungry.

Lastly, sometime in the next year or so, watch for my sophomore novel tentatively titled God Walks Among Us Now.
