Birthdays and Ebooks

Wow, it's been a while since I posted anything here.

That's not to say I've been idle. Far from it. This is the time of year in our family when a whole bunch of birthdays converge in a manner similar to a pileup on a freeway. So there are people to celebrate, gifts to give and receive, and all the rest of the joys that come along with it.

I noticed a long time ago that LOTS of people are born in November. Lots. And I have a theory on that. If you count back nine months from November, you land on February -- and we all know what loving holiday nestles itself squarely in the middle of February. Thus, I theorize that the majority of November babies are the result of their parents celebrating Valentine's Day.

It's just a theory, mind you, but I like to think it's plausible.

Anyway, birthdays aren't all that's kept me busy. In the midst of the turmoil I have also released "Devil's Creek", a supernatural suspense story. Personally, I think it's one of my better works, but of course that's up to the readers to decide. I might be a bit biased, it being my baby and all. CHECK IT OUT HERE. It's only 99 cents (at the moment) so grab it while you can! And be sure to let me know what you think.

And on that note, I must move on to contemplate the dilemma of November birthdays.


  1. Not to be a brat or anything (and I am thoroughly happy you have a book somewhat published.. if online is considered published.. yeah I suppose it is) but I only like nonfiction supernatural stories. I find it a waste of my time to read anything fictional, actually. That's probably not good, since there's probably a lot of good fiction out there. I will make the one exception for anything written for Tolkien or C.S. Lewis though. Because from them, I believe there is something more than the lore they tell. And it makes me think. That's what I want from a book. But enough about me. Congrats, and if John lets me borrow his credit card to make on online purchase, I'll force myself to read your book. :)

  2. Well, I don't want you to read it if you have to force yourself to do so! To each their own. I respect that.

    And while ebooks seem to be cheating, the fact is that ebooks are a revolutionary new mode of publication/reading, and will soon become as common as the paper books that line our shelves. I foresee the ebook industry as something worth capitalizing on. Am I right? We'll just have to wait and see.

  3. I'll read your book as soon as I get the chance, and with a big smile on my face!! I didn't mean to sound horrid. I've never read anything of yours and it was definitely not fair of me to say so. But.. do you write anything on the real supernatural? I'll be your number one fan!!
